Glioma development is an extremely complex process with changes occurring in numerous genes. HOXD antisense growth-associated long non-coding RNA (HOXD-AS1), an important long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), is known to regulate metastasis-related gene expression in bladder cancer, ovarian cancer and neuroblastoma. Here, we elucidated the function and possible molecular mechanisms of lncRNA HOXD-AS1 in human glioma cells. Our results proved that HOXD-AS1 expression was upregulated in glioma tissues and in glioma cell lines...

Several known breast cancer susceptibility genes with moderate-to-high risk alleles encode proteins involved in DNA damage response (DDR). As these explain less than half of the hereditary breast cancer cases, additional predisposing alleles are likely to be discovered. Many of the previous studies utilizing massive parallel sequencing have focused on the protein-truncating variants, and the role of rare missense mutations has remained poorly addressed. In order to identify novel susceptibility factors, we have systematically analyzed the data from our parallel sequencing of 796 DDR genes in 189 Northern Finnish hereditary breast cancer patients for rare missense variants, predicted as deleterious...

Availability of tumor and non-tumor patient-derived models would promote the development of more effective therapeutics for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). Recently, conditionally reprogrammed cells (CRC) methodology demonstrated exceptional potential for the expansion of epithelial cells from patient tissues. However, the possibility to expand patient-derived lung cancer cells using CRC protocols is controversial. Here, we used CRC approach to expand cells from non-tumoral and tumor biopsies of patients with primary or metastatic NSCLC as well as pulmonary metastases of colorectal or breast cancers...

Cervical cancer screening will rely, increasingly, on HPV testing as a primary screen. The requirement for triage tests which can delineate clinically significant infection is thus prescient. In this EUROGIN 2017 roadmap, justification behind the most evidenced triages is outlined, as are challenges for implementation. Cytology is the triage with the most follow-up data; the existence of an HR-HPV positive, cytology negative group presents a challenge and re-testing intervals for this group (and choice of re-test) require careful consideration...

Few risk factors have been identified for triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) which lacks expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). This more aggressive subtype disproportionately affects some racial/ethnic minorities and is associated with lower survival. We pooled data from three population-based studies (558 TNBC and 5,111 controls) and examined associations of TNBC risk with reproductive history and breast-feeding. We estimated odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) using multivariable logistic regression...

Tobacco smoke is an established carcinogen, but the association between tobacco smoking and cancer risk in BRCA mutation carriers is not clear. The aim of this study was to evaluate prospectively the association between tobacco smoking and cancer incidence in a cohort of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. The study population consisted of unaffected BRCA mutation carriers. Information on lifestyle including smoking histories, reproductive factors, and past medical histories was obtained through questionnaires...

REVIEW
Levon M Khachigian
Yin Yang-1 (YY1) is a zinc finger protein and member of the GLI-Kruppel family that can activate or inactivate gene expression depending on interacting partners, promoter context and chromatin structure, and may be involved in the transcriptional control of ∼10% of the total mammalian gene set. A growing body of literature indicates that YY1 is overexpressed in multiple cancer types and that increased YY1 levels correlate with poor clinical outcomes in many cancers. However the role of YY1 in the promotion or suppression of tumor growth remains controversial and its regulatory effects may be tumor cell type dependent at least in experimental systems...

Periodontitis, a multifactorial infection-induced low-grade chronic inflammation, can influence the process of carcinogenesis. We studied with 10 years follow-up of 68 273 adults-based cohort the involvement of periodontitis as a risk factor for cancer mortality. Periodontal status was defined based on procedure codes of periodontal treatment. Rate ratios and absolute differences of overall and cancer mortality rates were assessed with respect to periodontal status using multiplicative and additive Poisson regression models, respectively...

Inflammation is a well-documented driver of cancer development and progression. However, little is known about its role in prostate carcinogenesis. Thus, we examined the association of C-reactive protein (CRP), haptoglobin, albumin and white blood cells (WBC) with prostate cancer (PCa) severity (defined by PCa risk category and clinicopathological characteristics) and progression (defined by PCa death). We selected 8471 Swedish men with newly diagnosed PCa who had exposure measurements taken approximately 14 years prior to diagnosis...

Thymic epithelial tumors are rare malignancies, and no optimal therapeutic regimen has been defined for patients with advanced disease. Patients with advanced thymic epithelial tumors, which were resistant or intolerable to prior therapies, were eligible for this study. Patients received 9 mer-WT1-derived peptide emulsified with Montanide ISA51 adjuvant via intradermal administration once a week as a monotherapy. After the 3 month-protocol treatment, the treatment was continued mostly at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks until disease progression or intolerable adverse events occurred...

Breast cancer (BC) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are major health problems. We examined the association between DM and BC stage at diagnosis and subsequent survival in a Finnish cohort of female BC patients. All BC cases (N = 73,170) diagnosed in 1995-2013 with dates and causes of death were identified from the Finnish Cancer Registry. Participation in organized mammography screening was obtained from Mass Inspection Registry. Information on DM diagnoses and background conditions recorded during 1995-2013 were obtained from national Care Register for Health Care and merged to data on medication use from the national Prescription Register...

Checkpoint inhibitors show promising efficacy in advanced lung cancer, especially in non-small cell lung cancer. This meta-analysis was conducted to explore the therapeutic efficacy and safety of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies combined with chemotherapy or CTLA4 antibody as first-line treatments for patients with advanced lung cancer. A systematic search was performed in databases for this system review and quantitative meta-analysis. Twelve trials were finally enrolled in the meta-analysis. Our analyses revealed that the combined overall response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) for immune checkpoint inhibitors combined with chemotherapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were 47...

Telomeres are crucial in the maintenance of chromosome integrity and genomic stability. Critically short telomeres can trigger programmed cell death while cells with longer telomeres may have increased likelihood of replicative errors, resulting in genetic mutations and chromosomal alterations, and ultimately promoting oncogenesis. Data on telomere length and lung cancer risk from large prospective cohort studies are spare. Relative telomere length in peripheral blood leukocytes was quantified using a validated monochrome multiplex quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) method in 26,540 participants of the Singapore Chinese Health Study...

A strong positive association has been observed between circulating anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), a biomarker of ovarian reserve, and breast cancer risk in three prospective studies. Confirming this association is important because of the paucity of biomarkers of breast cancer risk in premenopausal women. We conducted a consortium study including ten prospective cohorts that had collected blood from premenopausal women. A nested case-control design was implemented within each cohort. A total of 2,835 invasive (80%) and in situ (20%) breast cancer cases were individually matched to controls (n = 3,122) on age at blood donation...

Oncogenic KRAS plays a crucial role in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) development and progression. However, the mechanism has not been clearly elucidated. RKIP is a tumor repressor, and loss of RKIP has been shown in PDAC. Here, we found that KRAS expression was inversely correlated with RKIP expression in PDAC fresh tissue regardless of the KRAS mutant status. The negative correlation between KRAS and RKIP was further confirmed in our PDAC tissue microarray. KRAS overexpression and RKIP downregulation were associated with poor clinical outcomes...

Several meta-analyses have attempted to determine the relations between intake of α-linolenic acid (ALA) and prostate cancer, but results were inconclusive. 47,885 men aged 40-75y without prior cancer in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study were prospectively followed from 1986 to 2010. Intake of ALA was determined from validated food frequency questionnaires every four years. We used multivariate Cox proportional hazards models to estimate hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for lethal prostate cancer (distant metastasis or prostate cancer death)...

While long-term survival rates for early-stage lung cancer are high, most cases are diagnosed in later stages that can negatively impact survival rates. We aim to design a simple, single biomarker blood test for early-stage lung cancer that is robust to preclinical variables and can be readily implemented in the clinic. Whole blood was collected in PAXgene tubes from a training set of 29 patients, and a validation set of 260 patients, of which samples from 58 patients were prospectively collected in a clinical trial specifically for this study...

Glioblastomas (GBM) are high-grade brain tumours, differentially driven by alterations (amplification, deletion, or missense mutations) in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), that carry a poor prognosis of just 12-15 months following standard therapy. A combination of interventions targeting tumor-specific cell surface regulators along with convergent downstream signalling pathways may enhance treatment efficacy. Against this background, we investigated a novel photoimmunotherapy approach combining the cytotoxicity of photodynamic therapy with the specificity of immunotherapy...
