#1
Oindrila De, Biswa Prasun Chatterji
BACKGROUND: Microtubule dynamics play a vital role in regulating crucial cellular functions and are one of the most attractive anticancer drug targets. Microtubule targeting agents (MTAs) such as the vinca alkaloids or taxanes, although are effective for cancer therapy, have adverse side effects. Another hindrance in their development is multiple drug resistance in tumor cells. These drawbacks have urged the need to develop novel MTAs from alternative sources, with better therapeutic efficacy...

#2
Francisco Esteban Nicolas Molina
BACKGROUND: Since the first reports of microRNAs and the advent of new sequencing technologies, a whole new world of regulatory non-conding RNAs (ncRNAs) has revolutionized our knowledge of the RNA dimension. Thousands of functional non-coding transcripts has been identified and grouped into new classes of ncRNAs attending to their origin and function. Despite of the fact that we have just started to study ncRNAs, it is now clear that these new regulatory actors play an important role in most of the regulated biological processes and in almost all species...

#3
João Fernandes, Pedro Alves
BACKGROUND: Heat shock proteins (Hsp) are major chaperone molecules that have recently emerged as cancer therapeutic targets owing to their involvement in tumor cell proliferation, differentiation, invasion and metastasis. High levels of extracellular Hsp90 and Hsp70 have been closely associated with a wide range of human cancers. Accumulating evidence suggests that the pharmacological inhibition of these molecules can play a pivotal role in non-surgical cancer treatment. Efforts have been taken to develop monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and antibody fragments targeting extracellular Hsp90 and Hsp70, alone or conjugated with standard anticancer agents, to control several types of cancer, such as breast, colon, prostate or melanoma...

#4
Daniela Correia da Silva, Paula B Andrade, Vera Ribeiro, Patrícia Valentão, David Pereira
BACKGROUND: The proteasome is the major proteolytic site on the eukaryotic cell, degrading most of its short-lived or misfolded polypeptides. The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway has been found to play a fundamental role in the development of several pathologies, from cancer to neurodegenerative diseases, or even retroviral infections. Nature remains a powerful source for the discovery of bioactive compounds. Recently, a number of molecules of natural origin, as well as natural product derivatives, have been described as proteasome inhibitors...

#5
Sepideh Vahid, Daksh Thaper, Amina Zoubeidi
BACKGROUND: Protein homeostasis (proteostasis) is vital for the survival of cells in physiological and pathological conditions. Particularly, cancer cells are in constant state of cellular stress due to rapid proliferation and decreased quality control in proteosynthesis and therefore, are exceedingly dependent on the homeostasis pathways. Among the complex biological mechanisms regulating proteostasis are the highly conserved molecular chaperones, heat shock proteins (HSPs). HSPs assist cell survival by catalysing the proper folding of proteins, modulation of the apoptotic machinery and finally regulating the protein degradation machinery, providing either the stability or the degradation of selected proteins under stress conditions...

Maryam Iman, Mostafa Araghi, Toktam Heidari, Vahid Mohammadi
BACKGROUND: High doses of Cisplatin (CP) can disrupt the normal function of various tissues such as ovaries and testis. In almost all the patients, spermiotoxicity of CP causes temporary or permanent azoospermia. OBJECTIVE: In this study, the defensive effect of Melissa officinalis and vitamin E against testicular injuries caused by CP in male rats was evaluated. METHOD: Thirty six male rats were distributed into 6 groups. Group 1 used as the negative control...

Maryam Iman, Seyede Samaneh Mostafavi, Seyed Shahriar Arab, Sadegh Azimzadeh, Mansour Poorebrahim
BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that the high mortality of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) is related to its ability to spread the surrounding tissues, thus there is a need for designing and developing new drugs. OBJECTIVE: Here, we proposed a combinational therapy strategy, an inhibitory peptide in combination with miRNA targeting, for modulating CRC metastasis. In this study, some of the recent patents were also reviewed. METHODS: After data analysis with GEO2R and gene annotation using DAVID server, regulatory interactions of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were obtained from STRING, GeneMANIA, KEGG and TRED databases...

Marco Scianna, Luca Munaron
BACKGROUND: Cancer is a heterogeneous disease, which is based on an intricate network of processes at different spatiotemporal scales, from the genome to the tissue level. Hence the necessity for the biomedical and pharmaceutical research to work in a multiscale fashion. In this respect, a significant help derives from the collaboration with theoretical sciences. Mathematical models can in fact provide insights into tumor-related processes and support clinical oncologists in the design of treatment regime, dosage, schedule and toxicity...

#14
Maryam Iman, Zeynab Khansefid, Asghar Davood
BACKGROUND: Ribonucleotide Reductase (RNR) is an important anticancer chemotherapy target. It has main key role in DNA synthesis and cell growth. Therefore several RNR inhibitors, such as hydroxyurea, have entered the clinical trials. Based on our proposed mechanism, radical site of RNR protein reacts with hydroxyurea in which hydroxyurea is converted into its oxidized form compound III, and whereby the tyrosyl radical is converted into a normal tyrosine residue. OBJECTIVE: In this study, docking and molecular dynamics simulations were used for proposed molecular mechanism of hydroxyurea in RNR inhibition as anticancer agent...

#16
Jun-He Zhang, Ai-Ling Du, Li Wang, Xiao-Yin Wang, Jian-Hui Gao, Tian-Yun Wang
BACKGROUND: Gene therapy is a promising approach for the treatment of various cancers. However, most viral vectors used for this purpose carry risks, including potential integration into the host genome. OBJECTIVE: We addressed this issue in the present study by constructing an episomal lentiviral vector using the .-interferon matrix attachment region to express the microRNA -145(miR-145), and examining the effect of miR-145 overexpression on human esophageal carcinomas (EC) cells...

#18
Harold Bien, Gerardo G Mackenzie, Minsig Choi
Effective therapies against metastatic pancreatic cancer remain limited, and despite treatment, many will ultimately progress. Previously, few options were available for second line therapy in metastatic pancreatic cancer. Liposomal encapsulated irinotecan, in combination with leucovorin-modulated fluorouracil, was found to significantly increase overall survival in patients who have progressed after gemcitabine- based therapy in a large, international, randomized clinical trial (NAPOLI-1). We reviewed the background of systemic therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer, examined putative mechanisms for the success of encapsulated drugs, and identified recent patent applications on the use of liposomal irinotecan in pancreatic cancer...

#19
Alexander M Tishin, Alexander A Shtil, Alexander P Pyatakov, Vladimir I Zverev
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Methods of local or loco-regional anticancer treatment are of the utmost importance because the therapeutic 'power' is applied directly to the disease site. Consequently, general toxicity is minimized. Hyperthermia, that is, a sustained increase of intratumoral temperature up to 45oC, has been investigated as a perspective treatment modality alone and/or in combination with ionizing radiation or chemotherapy. Still, the surrounding tissues can be damaged by the external heat...

Arshdeep Singh, Navdeep Kaur, Gurpreet Singh, Pooja Sharma, Pms Bedi, Sahil Sharma, Kunal Nepali
BACKGROUND: Topoisomerases are a set of nuclear enzymes that play a vital role in handling of topological consequences of DNA during various genetic activities necessary for vitality of cell. Inhibition of these enzymes consequently leads to the blockage of ligation step of the cell cycle which generates single and double strand breakage in DNA strand. Introduction of these breaks subsequently leads to programmed cell death (Apoptosis). OBJECTIVE: In the past several years, topoisomerases have become one of the most expedient and strategic molecular targets for anticancer drugs and numerous patents have been filed and published on topoisomerase inhibitors...
