Osteosarcoma is an aggressive bone tumor with high metastasis rate in the lungs and affects both humans and dogs in a similar way. Three-dimensional tumor cell cultures mimic the in vivo situation of micro-tumors and metastases and are therefore better experimental in vitro models than the often applied two-dimensional monolayer cultures. The aim of the present study was to perform comparative proteomics of standard monolayer cultures of canine osteosarcoma cells (D17) and three-dimensional spheroid cultures, to better characterize the 3D model before starting with experiments like migration assays...

BACKGROUND: Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) is a cancer predisposition syndrome caused by mutations in the tumor-suppressor gene TP53. Osteosarcoma is a sentinel cancer in LFS. Prior studies using Sanger sequencing platforms have demonstrated that 3% of individuals with osteosarcoma harbor a mutation in TP53. New data from next-generation sequencing have demonstrated that 3.8% of patients with osteosarcoma have a known pathogenic variant, and an additional 5.7% carry exonic variants of unknown significance in TP53...

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is emerging as a critical regulator in multiple cancers. Recently, lncRNA PCAT-1 was found to be up-regulated in prostate cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma, exerting oncogenic effects. However, the biological function and regulatory mechanism of PCAT-1 remain unclear in osteosarcoma (OS). In this study, we reported that PCAT-1 expression was also upregulated in OS tissues, and its overexpression was remarkably associated with tumor size, Enneking stage, tumor node metastasis (TNM) stage and metastasis in patients with OS...

Increasing evidence indicates that microRNAs(miRNAs) are often aberrantly expressed in osteosarcoma (OS) and play critical roles in OS tumorigenesis. Therefore, the discovery of miRNAs may provide a new and powerful tool for understanding the mechanismof OS initiation and development. The aim of this study was to investigate the functional significance of miR-365 and identify its possible mechanism in OS cells. Here, wefound that the expression level of miR-365 is significantly downregulated in OS tissues and cell lines, and its expression isassociated with the clinical stage, distant metastasis, tumor grade, and poor overall survival rate...

Recent studies have demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs/miRs) are involved in osteosarcoma tumorigenesis, progression, invasion and metastasis. For example, miR-505 plays important roles in human carcinogenesis; however, its exact function in osteosarcoma remains unclear. MicroRNA profiles of osteosarcoma and normal tissues were obtained by miRNA microarray assays, which were validated by quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Then, high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) expression was evaluated by qRT-PCR and western blot analysis...

A 68-year-old Japanese man was referred to Tsukuba University Hospital for bladder cancer treatment. He had undergone a transurethral resection of a bladder tumor (TURBT) at a local hospital, but the pathological specimen did not contain muscle layer. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 3 cm non-papillary bladder tumor with muscle invasion, but there was no apparent calcification. The patient underwent re-TURBT at our hospital for diagnosis and staging. A non-papillary pedunculated tumor was identified in the bladder dome, and it contained a small papillary part...

BACKGROUND Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) gene plays an important role in bone and soft tumors. IGF-1 gene polymorphisms have been revealed to be correlated with the carcinogenesis and progression of solid malignancies. We therefore hypothesized that IGF-1 genetic polymorphisms might be associated with the risks and outcomes of osteosarcomas in Chinese individuals. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study included 173 conventional osteosarcoma individuals and 175 tumor-free controls. Five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of IGF-1 (rs6214, rs6218, rs35767, rs5742612, and rs5742714) were genotyped...

OBJECTIVES: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are characterized as a group of RNAs that more than 200 nucleotides in length and have no protein-coding function. More and more evidences provided that lncRNAs serve as key molecules in the development of cancer. Deregulation of lncRNAs functions as either oncogenes or tumour suppressor genes in various diseases. Recently, increasing studies about PANDAR in cancer progression were reported. In our review, we will focus on the current research on the character of PANDAR include the clinical management, tumour progression and molecular mechanisms in human cancers...

We explored the function of microRNA-381 on osteosarcoma cell growth and anticancer mechanism for clinic treatment. MicroRNA-381 of osteosarcoma patients was decreased, microRNA-381 levels were more downregulated at stages III/IV than those at stage I/II in osteosarcoma patients. Downregulation of microRNA-381 using anti-microRNA-381 mimics increased cell proliferation, decreased LDH activity and apoptosis, and inhibited caspase‑3/9 activities, Bax/Bcl-2 and p53 protein expression in vitro osteosarcoma cells through upregulation of LRH-1/Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway...

Extent of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, tumor size, and patient age are important prognostic variables for patients with osteosarcoma, but applying information from these continuous variables in survival models is difficult. Dichotomization is usually inappropriate and alternative statistical techniques should be considered instead. Nonlinear multivariable regression methods (restricted cubic splines and fractional polynomials) were applied to data from the National Cancer Database to model continuous prognostic factors for overall survival from localized, high-grade osteosarcoma of the appendicular and nonspinal skeleton following neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgical resection (N=2493)...

Osteosarcoma is a malignant bone tumor composed of mesenchymal cells producing osteoid and immature bone. Osteosarcoma is the most frequent primary malignant bone tumor, if we excluded myeloma, a haematologic disease. The incidence of osteosarcoma is 2-3/million/year, but is higher in adolescence, in which the annual incidence peaks at 8-11/million/year at 15-19 years of age. Local pain, followed by localized swelling and limitation of joint movement, are the typical signs and symptoms. Correct diagnosis can be achieved through a correct approach to the disease and the combination of clinical and radiographic aspects...
