An 80 year-old female presented with ductal breast carcinoma (stage II) three years ago, complained of asthenia and iron-deficiency anemia. No diagnosis was obtained after conventional endoscopy and iron supplements were indicated. Ten months later visible digestive hemorrhage was presented. Upper and lower endoscopy was repeated but non-diagnosis was obtained. Thus, video capsule endoscopy was indicated identifying a stenotic lesion arising in the mucosa of distal jejunum. Histopathological examination revealed a poorly mucinous differentiated signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma with an intense peri-tumoral lymphoid (Crohn´s-like lymphoid reaction) and lympho-vascular infiltration with no nodal metastases (pT3N0;7ª edition TNM classification)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: A common variant in the solute carrier family 39 member 6 gene (SLC39A6) has been associated with survival times of patients with esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma (ESCC). We investigated the function of SLC39A6 and ways in which this variant affects tumor progression by studying ESCC samples and cell lines. METHODS: SLC39A6 was expressed, or knocked down by expression of small hairpin RNAs, in ESCC cells (KYSE30 and KYSE450) and HeLa cells using lentiviral vectors; we analyzed effects on proliferation, colony formation, migration, and invasion in vitro...

Tumor necrosis factor α induced protein 3 (TNFAIP3) is a protein that is induced by TNF-mediated NF-κB activation and has a dual function in regulating NF-κB. TNFAIP3 is associated with inflammatory carcinogenesis in many cancer types. However, the clinical significance of TNFAIP3 expression and function in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) has not yet been reported. We examined 149 ESCC tissue specimens to determine the clinical significance of TNFAIP3 by immunohistochemistry. Western blot analyses were used to detect TNFAIP3 expression in TE-1, TE-8, TE-15 and KYSE-70 ESCC cells and in Het-1A, a non-cancerous esophageal cell line...

PURPOSE: Accumulating evidence indicates that factors secreted by cancer epithelial cells shape the tumor microenvironment to promote cancer invasion and metastasis. Recent studies also shed light on alterations of Rab small GTPases-mediated exocytosis in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanisms for Rab-mediated exocytosis in tumor microenvironment remain elusive. We aimed to investigate the interplay between Rab37-mediated exocytosis and tumor microenvironment focusing on endothelial cells motility and angiogenesis...

KIAA1377, of which there are few studies regarding cell biology and neurological diseases, has been found to be significantly amplified in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with lymph node metastasis compared with ESCC without lymph node metastasis. This suggests that KIAA1377 may play a role in the lymph node metastasis of ESCC. There has, to the best of our knowledge, been no study performed to investigate the role of KIAA1377 in ESCC. In the present study, the expression of KIAA1377 was detected by immunohistochemistry, and its expression was statistically analyzed with clinicopathological parameters, using commercially obtained tissue arrays consisting of 86 cases of ESCC and 79 paired controls...

Resveratrol is a small polyphenol that has been intensively studied in a wide spectrum of therapeutic fields. More recently, resveratrol has been demonstrated to exert its antitumor activity in numerous tumor models. The present study reported that resveratrol exhibited a marked anti-proliferative effect on human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells by inducing cell cycle G0/G1 phase arrest and cell death, which was associated with a decrease in the expression levels of cyclin D1 and an increase in cleaved PARP/cleaved caspase-3 expression levels...

RAP1B is a small GTPase, which regulates multiple cellular processes. Up-regulation of RAP1B has been observed in several cancer types. Although previous study has shown that miR-518 inhibited the proliferation and invasion of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells possibly by targeting RAP1B, the expression pattern and the functions of RAP1B in ESCC are not fully understood. Here, we have fund that the expression of RAP1B was up-regulated in ESCC clinical samples. Gain-of-function and loss-of-function assays demonstrated that RAP1B promoted the growth, migration and metastasis of the ESCC cells...

MicroRNAs (miRs) are small endogenous non-coding RNAs that play a vital role in carcinogenesis. miR-193a-3p has been described in multiple cancers. However, the function of miR-193a-3p in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is still unclear. To explore the role of miR-193a-3p in ESCC, reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to evaluate the expression of miR-193a-3p in 48 paired ESCC and adjacent normal tissues. In addition, the impact of miR-193a-3p on cell proliferation, migration and apoptosis were analyzed by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay, wound scratch assay and flow cytometry, respectively...

Dysregulation of the discoidin domain receptors (DDRs) has been implicated in the development of numerous types of tumors, including head and neck cancer, and nasopharyngeal, breast, ovarian and esophageal carcinomas. Furthermore, agents that inhibit DDR1 activity are hypothesized to be useful for the treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the DDR1 inhibitory (3-(2-(pyrazolo(1,5-a)pyrimidin-6-yl)-ethynyl)benzamide compound, 7RH, in NPC cells both in vitro and in vivo, and its effect when used in combination with dasatinib, a SRC family kinase (SFK) inhibitor...

BACKGROUND: The expression of Fos-related antigen 1 (Fra-1) affects tumor progression, migration, and invasion. In this study, we identified the genes regulated by Fra-1 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS: We constructed Fra-1 knockdown models via the transfection of small interfering RNA (siRNA) into ESCC cell lines (TE10, TE11). The expression levels of the genes in the knockdown models were analyzed using a microarray and a Biobase Upstream Analysis, while the expression levels of the candidate genes in the primary tumors of surgical specimens obtained from ESCC patients were determined using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and immunohistochemical staining...

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the esophagus are extremely rare, aggressive and have a poor prognosis. Combined therapy using chemotherapy, radiotherapy and/or surgery appear effective. Here, we present a patient with a complaint of dysphagia who was diagnosed with this rare tumor. Upper gastrointestinal endoscope of a 46-year-old female revealed a localized ulcerative lesion in the middle esophagus. Histologic exam of biopsy specimens indicated a neuroendocrine carcinoma. The tumor cells were arranged in microtubular structures, with small and round cells containing scanty cytoplasm...

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is routinely used for accessing mediastinal lymph nodes and masses. However, in patients with respiratory failure, who are being mechanically ventilated through an endotracheal tube, EBUS-TBNA may not be feasible due to several reasons. In such patients, the esophageal route offers a useful alternative for accessing mediastinal lesions. Herein, we describe a 50-year-old man with a mediastinal mass, who was being invasively ventilated for respiratory failure...
