Zinc finger with KRAB and SCAN domain 3 (ZKSCAN3) upregulates genes encoding proteins involved in cell differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis. ZKSCAN3 has been reported to be overexpressed in several human cancers such as colorectal cancer and prostate cancer and is proposed as a candidate oncoprotein. However, the molecular mechanism by which ZKSCAN3 participates in carcinogenesis is largely unknown. Here, we evaluated ZKSCAN3 expression in uterine cervical cancers (CC) by immunohistochemistry using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from 126 biopsy samples from 126 patients...

BACKGROUND: Emerging evidence on the optimal use of chemotherapy and biologics in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) should impact management in routine care. Recent studies have demonstrated benefits for initial triplet chemotherapy (FOLFOXIRI) and for initial treatment with an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor (EGFRi) in patients with a RAS wild type tumour and a left-sided primary. AIM: To explore evolving patterns of mCRC care over time in Australia...

Coordinated expression of guidance molecules and their signal transduction are critical for correct brain wiring. Previous studies have shown that phospholipase C gamma1 (PLCγ1), a signal transducer of receptor tyrosine kinases, plays a specific role in the regulation of neuronal cell morphology and motility in vitro However, several questions remain regarding the extracellular stimulus that triggers PLCγ1 signaling and the exact role PLCγ1 plays in nervous system development. Here, we demonstrate that PLCγ1 mediates axonal guidance through a netrin-1/deleted in colorectal cancer (DCC) complex...

TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) induces apoptosis through death receptors (DRs)4 and/or 5 expressed on the cell surface. Multiple clinical trials are underway to evaluate the antitumor activity of recombinant human TRAIL and agonistic antibodies to DR4 or DR5. However, their therapeutic potential is limited by the high frequency of cancer resistance. In this study, we provide evidence demonstrating the role of lipocalin 2 (LCN2) in the TRAIL-mediated apoptosis of human colorectal cancer (CRC)...

The RET fusion is considered as the potential novel target in solid tumors. However, RET fusion is not well yet identified in colorectal cancer (CRC), and the effect of RET kinase inhibitor is also not evaluated in CRC with RET fusion. We established patient-derived tumor cells (PDCs) with RET fusion from recurrent brain metastatic lesion that newly appeared during the surveillance for stage III CRC patient. To investigate therapeutic options to CRC patient with a RET fusion, we performed cell viability assays using the PDCs...

Recently there has been a growing interest in three-dimensional (3D) cell culture systems for drug discovery and development. These 3D culture systems better represent the in vivo cellular environment compared to two-dimensional (2D) cell culture, thereby providing more physiologically reliable information on drug screening and testing. Here we present the quantitative profiling of a drug-induced proteome in 2D- and 3D-cultured colorectal cancer SW480 cells using 2D nanoflow liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (2D-nLC-MS/MS) integrated with isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ)...

Shorter colonoscopic withdrawal time (CWT) has been associated with lower adenoma detection rate (ADR), which can increase the risk of interval colorectal cancer (ICC) that commonly arises in the right colon (RC). Therefore, a better ADR in the RC could decrease the incidence of ICC. We analyzed the relationship between CWT and ADR in the RC and entire colon.We retrospectively reviewed the patients who had undergone screening colonoscopy at Chungnam National University Hospital between March 2015 and February 2016...

BACKGROUND:  Peritoneal carcinomatosis can influence clinical outcomes of patients receiving self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) for malignant colorectal obstruction, but data regarding this issue are sparse. We analyzed the clinical outcomes of post-SEMS insertion for malignant colorectal obstruction based on carcinomatosis status. METHODS:  Stent- and patient-related clinical outcomes were compared for carcinomatosis status in a retrospective review involving 323 consecutive patients (colorectal cancer 198 patients; extracolonic malignancy 125 patients) who underwent palliative SEMS placement for malignant colorectal obstruction from January 2005 to March 2012...

The increasing incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in younger adults (age <50 years) has been widely reported. Using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program, we young-onset CRC incidence rates decreased from 1975 through about 1990. Decreases were more prominent in the colon, a contrast with more recent increases in rectal cancer. Incidence rates subsequently increased, differing by time period and 5-year age group. This inflection point is consistent with a birth cohort effect and points to early life exposures - accumulated throughout the life course - that may increase cancer risk...

BACKGROUND: Perineural invasion (PNI) has emerged as an important factor related to colorectal cancer spread; however, the impact of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) on PNI remains unclear. Herein, we investigated the prognostic value of PNI, along with lymphovascular invasion (LVI), in rectal cancer patients treated with nCRT. METHODS: This single-center observational study of pathologic variables, including PNI and LVI, analyzed 1411 invasive rectal cancer patients (965 and 446 patients treated with primary resection and nCRT, respectively)...

Here we report the case of a 20-year-old patient who was diagnosed in 2002 with a metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). He achieved a complete response under cetuximab-based therapy and remains without disease recurrence until now while chemotherapy was discontinued in 2009. The tumor exhibited high level of epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR ) amplification, no mutation in KRAS , NRAS or BRAF genes and a microsatellite-stable (MSS) phenotype. Intriguingly this young patient was carrying a monoallelic germline mutation of MUTYH that was associated with an inactivation of the second allele by loss of heterozygosity on tumor DNA...

Based on an inverse association between vitamin D levels and the risks of colorectal diseases, a functional start codon polymorphism in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene is speculated to affect the risks for these diseases. To validate this hypothesis, we first conducted a case-control study of 695 colorectal cancer patients and 1,397 controls. The association of VDR FokI polymorphism with colorectal cancer risk was analyzed using a logistic regression model. In the present case-control study, compared to the F allele, the f allele seemed to be associated with lower risks of colon cancer and advanced colorectal cancer...

The pTNM staging system for colorectal cancer (CRC) is not entirely effective in discriminating between potentially curative and non-curative resections because it does not account for local residual tumour in patients with stages I, II or III. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic importance of histologically verified tumour in any line of resection of the bowel resection specimen (TLR) in relation to pTNM stages and to demonstrate how TLR may be integrated into pTNM staging. Information on patients in the period 1995 to 2010 with complete follow-up to the end of 2015 was extracted from a prospective database of CRC resections...
