Impact of Chemotherapy-induced Menopause in Women of Childbearing Age With Non-metastatic Breast Cancer - Preliminary Results From the MENOCOR Study.

Young patients with breast cancer treated with chemotherapy can experience ovarian failure, which can lead to chemotherapy-induced menopause (CIM) impacting the quality of life (QoL). A prospective study was set out to evaluate the impact of CIM on QoL in women of childbearing age with non-metastatic breast cancer, and this article reports results of the interim analysis conducted to evaluate feas...

Prognostic Effect of Tumor Sidedness in Colorectal Cancer: A SEER-Based Analysis.

The prognostic value of tumor sidedness in metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) has been established, but its impact on nonmetastatic disease remains unclear. Our study aimed to explore the prognostic effect of tumor sidedness by subgroup survival analyses, according to histology and tumor grade in stage I-IV CRCs.

Pathologic Nodal Involvement in Patients With Penile Cancer With Cavernosal Versus Spongiosal Involvement.

The American Joint Committee on Cancer recently proposed new TNM staging for penile cancer, with proposed T2 as spongiosal invasion and T3 as cavernosal invasion. We sought to validate the proposed staging system for predicting pathologic nodal involvement using the National Cancer Data Base.

Radium 223 was introduced for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer based on the results of a randomized controlled trial showing risk reduction for death and skeletal events. Our aim was to evaluate the outcome of patients receiving radium 223 in a real-world setting.

KDM5B is a master regulator of the H3K4-methylome in stem cells, development and cancer.

Epigenetic regulation of chromatin plays a critical role in controlling stem cell function and tumorigenesis. The histone lysine demethylase, KDM5B, which catalyzes the demethylation of histone 3 lysine 4 (H3K4), is important for embryonic stem (ES) cell differentiation, and is a critical regulator of the H3K4-methylome during early mouse embryonic pre-implantation stage development. KDM5B is also...

Cancer-associated stroma significantly contributes to the mesenchymal subtype signature of serous ovarian cancer.

Mesenchymal (MES) subtype of high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is associated with worse outcomes including survival and resectability compared with other molecular subtypes. Molecular subtypes have historically been derived from 'tumor', consisting of both cancer and stromal cells. We sought to determine the origins of multiple MES subtype gene signatures in HGSOC.

Alpinumisoflavone causes DNA damage in Colorectal Cancer Cells via blocking DNA repair mediated by RAD51.

Colorectal Cancer (CRC) accounts for 6.1% incidence and 9.2% mortality worldwide. The current study aimed to investigate the effect of alpinumisoflavone (AIF) on CRC and its possible molecular mechanism.

Right-sided vs Left-sided Pneumonectomy after Induction Therapy for Non-small-cell Lung Cancer.

A right-sided pneumonectomy after induction therapy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been shown to be associated with significant perioperative risk. We examined the impact of laterality on long-term survival after induction therapy and pneumonectomy using the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB).

Reproductive factors, obesity and risk of colorectal cancer in a cohort of Asian women.

This study evaluated reproductive factors and obesity in relation to colorectal cancer (CRC) in Asian women.

Novel dauricine derivatives suppress cancer via autophagy-dependent cell death.

Eleven dauricine derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-cancer effect in different cancer cells and their autophagic activity in HeLa model cell. Among these newly synthesized compounds, carbamates 2a, 2b, carbonyl ester 3a and sulfonyl ester 4a exhibited potent cytotoxic effects on tested cancer cells with IC values ranged from 2.72 to 12.53 μM, which were more potent than t...

Calpain system protein expression and activity in ovarian cancer.

Expression of members of the calpain system are associated with clinical outcome of patients with, amongst others, breast and ovarian cancers, with calpain-2 expression in ovarian cancer being implicated in chemo-resistance and survival. This study aimed, using a large patient cohort and in vitro models, to verify its importance and further investigate the role in ovarian cancer chemoresponse.

The non-canonical functions of telomerase: to turn off or not to turn off.

Telomerase is perceived as an immortality enzyme that enables passing the Hayflick limit. Its main function is telomere restoration but only in a limited group of cells, including cancer cells. Since it is found in a vast majority of cancer cells, it became a natural target for cancer therapy. However, it has much more functions than just altering the metabolism of telomeres-it also reveals numero...

Clinical implication of E-cadherin deficiency in lobular breast cancer.

Metronomic oral vinorelbine for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer: a multicenter international retrospective analysis.

Metronomic oral vinorelbine (MOV) could be a treatment option for unfit patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) based on its safety profile and high patient compliance.

Diagnostic performance of F-choline PET-CT in prostate cancer.

To evaluate the diagnostic performance of F-choline PETCT in staging prostate cancer (PC) and whether the use of this imaging modality changes the therapeutic decision in patients previously staged by conventional imaging. The secondary aim was to determine the prognostic factors associated with positive choline PETCT findings in both detection of disseminated disease and in changes in the therape...

Comorbid cancer and use of thrombolysis in acute pulmonary embolism.

Guidelines suggest the use of thrombolytic therapy for acute pulmonary embolism (PE) patients with hypotension who are not at high-risk of bleeding. Data describing the use of thrombolysis in patients with cancer are scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between cancer and the use of thrombolysis for acute PE. The 2013 and 2014 US National Inpatient Sample was used to iden...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection of superficial esophageal cancer expanding into the diverticulum.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is standard treatment for early esophageal cancer (EEC). Cancer located within the diverticulum, which has a thin or nonexistent muscular coating, is extremely rare. We describe successful ESD of esophageal diverticular cancer with a high risk of perforation. A 20-mm EEC lesion expanding into the diverticulum was detected in the middle thoracic esophagus of a...

NUAK2 is a critical YAP target in liver cancer.

The Hippo-YAP signaling pathway is a critical regulator of proliferation, apoptosis, and cell fate. The main downstream effector of this pathway, YAP, has been shown to be misregulated in human cancer and has emerged as an attractive target for therapeutics. A significant insufficiency in our understanding of the pathway is the identity of transcriptional targets of YAP that drive its potent growt...

Perspective: cancer vaccines in the era of immune checkpoint blockade.

Current excitement about cancer immunotherapy is the result of unprecedented clinical impact from immune checkpoint inhibitors, particularly those that target programmed death (PD)-1 and PD-ligand (L)-1. Numerous other immunotherapeutics are also finding their way into the clinic either alone or in combination, and these have potential applications in many cancer types. Therapeutic cancer vaccines...

Association between pre-operative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and surgical outcomes in breast cancer: not yet determined.

Achievement of a good death among young adult patients with cancer: analyses of combined data from three nationwide surveys among bereaved family members.

Although little improvement has been made in the survival rate among young cancer patients over recent decades, whether they have achieved a good death has never been systematically explored. We aimed to clarify whether young cancer patients (aged 20-39 years) have achieved a good death, and compare their achievement with that of middle-aged patients (aged 40-64 years).

Toward the development of a comprehensive cancer experience measurement framework.

A diagnosis of cancer and its treatment often have a profound impact on an individual's health-related quality of life-affecting physical, psychological, social, occupational, and financial domains. Person-centered care (PCC)-defined as a respectful, responsive, and tailored approach that meets patients' needs, values, and preferences-is becoming an integral part of comprehensive cancer care. The...

Clinicopathological features of breast cancer in Japanese female patients with Lynch syndrome.

Lynch syndrome (LS) is a predominantly inherited syndrome caused by a pathological germline mutation in one of the mismatch repair (MMR) genes. Whether breast cancer (BC) is one of the LS-associated tumors is controversial. The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to evaluate the clinical features of BC in Japanese patients with LS.

Improvement of appropriate pharmacological prophylaxis in hospitalised cancer patients with a multiscreen e-alert system: a single-centre experience.

Thromboprophylaxis use among medical inpatients, including cancer patients, is suboptimal. We aimed to evaluate the impact of a novel multiscreen version (v2.0) of an e-alert system for VTE prevention in hospitalised cancer medical patients compared to the original software.

Cancer immunotherapy of patients with HIV infection.

Cancer immunotherapy with antibodies against immune checkpoints has made impressive advances in the last several years. The most relevant drugs target programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) expressed on T cells or its ligand, the programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), expressed on cancer cells, and cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4). Unfortunately, cancer patients with HIV infection are...
