BACKGROUND/AIMS: MicroRNA-21 is an oncogenic miR (oncomiR) frequently elevated in gastric cancer (GC). Overexpression of miR-21 decreases the sensitivity of GC cells to 5-fluorouridine (5-Fu) and trastuzumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). Receptor-mediated endocytosis plays a crucial role in the delivery of biotherapeutics including anti-miRNA oligonucleotides (AMOs). This study is a continuation of earlier findings involving poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL)-poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG) nanoparticles (PEG-PCL NPs), which were coated with trastuzumab to target GC with HER2 receptor over-expression using anti-miRNA-21 (AMO-21) and 5-Fu...

N A Nixon, M B Hannouf, S Verma
The cost of cancer drugs continues to escalate with the rapid development and approval of novel therapies, especially over the course of the last decade. In human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer, the survival benefits gained by new treatments have been undeniably substantial. It is important to assess the financial value of these therapies for decision making at both the societal and individual level. This information is key for managing resources in resource-limited health care systems, while at the same time supporting patient decision-making and conversations between patient and physicians on cost versus benefit...

The Keap1-Nrf2 system contributes to the maintenance of homeostasis by regulating oxidative stress responses in normal tissues and organs, and is exploited in various cancers for proliferation, survival and acquisition of therapy resistance. Pancreatic cancer remains one of the intractable cancers, despite the improved clinical outcomes of other types of cancer, due to its invasive and refractory nature to therapeutic intervention. The current study aimed to clarify the contribution of Nrf2 to pancreatic carcinogenesis using a pancreas-specific mutant K-ras and p53 (KPC) mouse model...

<p>Psoriasis is a chronic infammatory skin disease that affects millions of people in the United States as well as worldwide. While there is cur-rently no cure for psoriasis, many treatment options are available. Topical therapies are the mainstay for the majority of patients who have limited or mild psoriasis. Among these medications, topical vitamin D analogs (eg, calcipotriene) and corticosteroids (eg, betamethasone), and these drugs in combination, are the most widely prescribed psoriasis drugs and are the cornerstone of topical therapies...

Depression and depressive symptoms mediate the association between drug use and HIV risk. Yet, there are few interventions that target depressive symptoms and HIV risk for people who use drugs (PWUD). This study was a randomized controlled trial of an integrated cognitive behavioral therapy and HIV prevention intervention to reduce depressive symptoms, injection risk behaviors and increase condom use in a sample of urban people who used heroin or cocaine in the prior 6 months. A total of 315 individuals aged 18-55, who self-reported at least one HIV drug and sex risk behavior and scored ≥16 and <40 on the Centers for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression (CES-D) scale were randomized using a two-block design, stratified by sex to ensure equivalent numbers, to a 10 session intervention arm (n = 162) or a single session control arm (n = 153)...

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have been implicated in transmitting signals across the extra- and intra-cellular compartments, thus allowing environmental stimuli to elicit critical biological responses. As GPCRs can be activated by an extensive range of factors including hormones, neurotransmitters, phospholipids and other stimuli, their involvement in a plethora of physiological functions is not surprising. Aberrant GPCR signaling has been regarded as a major contributor to diverse pathologic conditions, such as inflammatory, cardiovascular and neoplastic diseases...

Uveal melanoma (UM) is the most common primary intraocular malignancy in adults. Up to 50% of primary UM cases will develop distant metastasis, but no effective therapies are currently available. The present study aimed to characterize the expression profile of the long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and screen the potential metastasis-associated lncRNAs in UM. A genome-wide analysis of the transcriptome was performed on 11 primary UM tissues (6 metastasized and 5 nonmetastasized) through RNA sequencing. A total of 40,878 lncRNAs were detected in UM, 4,983 of which were novel candidates...

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive and highly invasive type of astrocytic tumors. Despite advances in diagnosis and therapy, the prognosis and survival time remain poor. Identifying key mediators of tumor cell proliferation, migration and invasion is crucial to the development of new and more effective therapies. In this paper, we report the novel role of Spermatogenesis- and oogenesis- specific basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor1 (Sohlh1) in the inhibition of Wnt/β-catenin signaling and aggressive behaviors in GBM cells...

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells represent a novel targeted approach to overcome both quantitative and qualitative shortfalls of the host immune system relating to the detection and subsequent destruction of tumors. The identification of antigens expressed specifically on the surface of tumor cells is a critical first step in the ability to utilize CAR T cells for the treatment of cancer. The 5T4 is a tumor-associated antigen which is expressed on the cell surface of most solid tumors including ovarian cancer...

The annual "Antibody Industrial Symposium", co organized by LabEx MAbImprove, MabDesign and Polepharma, was held in Tours, France on June 27-28, 2017. The focus was on antibody-drug-conjugates (ADCs), new entities which realize the hope of Paul Ehrlich's magic bullet. ADCs result from the bioconjugation of a highly cytotoxic drug to a selective monoclonal antibody, which acts as a vector. Building on knowledge gained during the development of three approved ADCs, brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris®), ado trastuzumab emtansine (Kadcyla®) and inotuzumab ozogamicin (Besponsa®), and the many ADCs in development, this meeting addressed strategies and the latest innovations in the field from fundamental research to manufacturing...

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a highly aggressive glial brain tumor with an unfavorable prognosis despite all current therapies including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. One characteristic of this tumor is a strong synthesis of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an angiogenesis factor, followed by pronounced vascularization. VEGF became a target in the treatment of GBM, for example with bevacizumab or the tyrosine kinase inhibitor axitinib, which blocks VEGF receptors. To improve patients' prognosis, new targets in the treatment of GBM are under investigations...

The traditional therapy of cancer has systemic side effects, and many cancers, such as human breast cancer and lung cancer easily metastasize to bones, leading to the formation of secondary tumours. This study was aimed at enhancing the anti-tumour effect of curcumin (CUR) and preventing tumour spread to the bone. A novel multifunctional redox-responsive and CD44 receptor targeting polymer-drug, poly alendronate-hyaluronan-S-S-curcumin copolymer (ALN-oHA-S-S-CUR) based CUR and alendronate (ALN) were synthesized successfully with the disulphide bond linker...

Treatment of renal cell carcinoma is still palliative. Targeted therapy increases response rates and prolongs overall survival and progression-free survival compared with cytokines and chemotherapy. Checkpoint inhibitors constitute the up-date of therapeutic approaches, and anti-PD-1 antibody, one checkpoint inhibitor, is now well established as a second and/or third palliative treatment for patients with renal cell carcinoma. In this study, we present the latest data from current studies on cytokines, cancer vaccines, ipilimumab, and nivolumab...

Chemotherapy prolongs overall survival (OS) in esophageal (EC) and gastric cancer (GC). Unsatisfactory results of systemic therapy initiated a search for new treatment options. In metastatic disease, a number of targeted drugs were tested; however, several phase III studies assessing receptor tyrosin kinase-related signaling pathways, such as EGFR, MET/HGF or mTOR, failed. Trastuzumab remains the only targeted drug with a known molecular predictor, which extended the OS in metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma and adenocarcinoma of esophago-gastric junction...

The advent of immunotherapy has changed our concept of how to manage metastatic disease. With the exception of relatively rare tumors, the treatment of metastatic cancer is still considered as palliative, and in systemic treatment immunotherapy is often selected, considering better tolerance. Immunotherapy opens the perspective of a long-term, possibly durable, response, and, in contrast to other approaches to targeted therapy, is active across a spectrum of tumors. Combined regimens that increase the efficacy, given the context, are thus of importance...
