Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is a receptor tyrosine kinase physiologically expressed by fetal neural cells. However, aberrantly expressed ALK is involved in the pathogenesis of diverse malignancies including distinct types of lymphoma, lung carcinoma, and neuroblastoma. The aberrant ALK expression in non-neural cells results from chromosomal translocations that create novel fusion proteins. These protein hybrids are comprised of the proximal part of a partner gene including its promoter region and the distal part of ALK including coding sequence for the entire kinase domain...

Tumour-associated inflammation is a hallmark of malignant carcinomas, and lung cancer is a typical inflammation-associated carcinoma. Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is an important inflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and in inflammation-associated tumours. Numerous studies have shown that IL-17 directly or indirectly promotes tumour angiogenesis and cell proliferation and that it inhibits apoptosis via the activation of inflammatory signalling pathways...

Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is characterized by abnormal accumulation of neoplastic mast cells harboring the activating KIT mutation D816V in the bone marrow and other internal organs. Similar to other myeloproliferative neoplasms, increased production of pro-fibrogenic and angiogenic cytokines and related alterations of the bone marrow microenvironment are commonly found in SM. However, only little is known about mechanisms and effector molecules triggering fibrosis and angiogenesis in SM. Here we show that KIT D816V promotes expression of the pro-angiogenic cytokine CCL-2 in neoplastic mast cells...

Although mast cells (MCs) have been discovered over 130 years ago, their function was almost exclusively linked to allergic affections. At the time being, it is well known that MCs possess a great variety of roles, in both physiologic and pathologic conditions. In the oral tissues, MCs release different proinflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), that promote leukocyte infiltration in various inflammatory states of the oral cavity. These cells play a key role in the inflammatory process and, as a consequence, their number changes in different pathologic conditions of the oral cavity, like gingivitis, periodontitis, and so on...

MicroRNA-210 (miR-210) was initially reported to be associated with hypoxia and plays a vital role in modulating angiogenesis. However, the potential effect and underlying mechanisms of miR-210 activity in rat spinal cord injury (SCI) have not yet been fully illuminated. In the present study, differential microRNA expression after SCI was determined by Microarray analysis. To explore the effect of miR-210 after SCI, we intrathecally injected agomir-210 with Alzet Osmotic Pumps to up-regulated the endogenous miR-210 expression...

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is implicated in the peritoneal membrane remodeling that limits ultrafiltration in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). Although the exact mechanism of VEGF induction in PD is unclear, VEGF concentrations in drained dialysate correlate with IL-6 levels, suggesting a link between these cytokines. Human peritoneal mesothelial cells (HPMCs), the main source of IL-6 and VEGF in the peritoneum, do not bear the cognate IL-6 receptor and are thus unable to respond to classic IL-6 receptor signaling...

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), originally described as an anti-neoplastic cytokine, has been found, in apparent contradiction to its name, to play an important role in promoting the development and progression of malignant disease. Targeting TNF-α with TNF antagonists has elicited an objective response in certain solid tumors in phase I and II clinical trials. This review focuses on the relationship of TNF-α expressed by leukemia cells and adverse clinical features of leukemia. TNF-α is involved in all steps of leukemogenesis, including cellular transformation, proliferation, angiogenesis, and extramedullary infiltration...

Skin cancer affects more individuals in the USA than any other malignancy and malignant melanoma is particularly deadly because of its metastatic potential. Melanoma has been recognized as one of the most immunogenic malignancies; therefore, understanding the mechanisms of tumor-immune interaction is key for developing more efficient treatments. As the tumor microenvironment shows an immunosuppressive action, immunotherapeutic agents promoting endogenous immune response to cancer have been tested (interleukin-2, anticytotoxic-T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4, and antiprogrammed cell death protein 1 monoclonal antibodies) as well as combinations of cytotoxic chemotherapy agents and inhibitors of angiogenesis (taxol/carboplatin/avastin)...

The immunomodulatory functions of monocytes are increasingly being recognized. Silicified collagen scaffolds (SCSs), produced by infiltrating collagen matrices with intrafibrillar amorphous silica, exhibit osteogenic and angiogenic potential and are promising candidates in tissue engineering. Here, we demonstrate that SCS promotes in situ bone regeneration and angiogenesis via monocyte immunomodulation. Increased numbers of TRAP-positive monocytes, nestin-positive bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) and CD31-positive and endomucin-positive new vessels can be identified from new bone formation regions in a murine calvarial defect model...

Inflammation and angiogenesis are two hallmarks of carcinoma. The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-17 (IL-17) facilitates angiogenesis in lung cancer; however, the underlying mechanism is not fully understood. In this study, tumour microvessel density (MVD) was positively associated with IL-17, interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-8 (IL-8), and vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF) expression in human lung adenocarcinoma tissues, and it was increased in tumour tissues of A549-IL-17 cell-bearing nude mice...

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex network of proteins, glycoproteins, proteoglycans, and polysaccharides. Through multiple interactions with each other and the cell surface receptors, not only the ECM determines the physical and mechanical properties of the tissues, but also profoundly influences cell behavior and many physiological and pathological processes. One of the functions that have been extensively explored is its impingement on angiogenesis. The strong impact of the ECM in this context is both direct and indirect by virtue of its ability to interact and/or store several growth factors and cytokines...

Tumor associated macrophages (TAMs) are an important element of tumor stroma. They originate from blood monocytes attracted by chemokines and cytokines produced by tumor cells and, being instructed by tumor microenvironment, develop into potent tumor-supporting cell population. TAMs were demonstrated to directly stimulate tumor cell proliferation and to promote angiogenesis. Further TAMs provide for efficient immune escape by producing immunosuppressive cytokines and facilitate tumor dissemination by producing extracellular matrix remodeling enzymes...

PURPOSE: Our previous results showed that cadmium (Cd)-adapted lung epithelial cells (LECs) developed resistance to apoptosis due to non-responsiveness of the c-Jun N-terminal kinase pathway and augmented expression of cytokeratin 8. Since cellular Cd entry is a prerequisite in order for Cd to elicit its cytotoxicity, therefore, we wonder if there are differential metal ion transport ability and also other phenotypic changes that occurred in these Cd-resistant LECs. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND RESULTS: Here, we explored further and found that the zinc (Zn) importer Zip8 was stably abolished in these cells along with a marked decrease of Cd and Zn accumulation...

OBJECTIVES: The receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL) inhibitors are novel clinically effective agents that inhibit osteoclast differentiation, function, and survival by binding to RANKL. Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ), caused as a result of treatment using denosumab, is a newly emerging type of bone necrosis, the exact pathogenesis of which is unknown. Several studies recently showed that the intravenous administration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) improved the osteonecrosis of the jaw, and it was hypothesized that paracrine effects by secretomes from MSCs are the main constituent...

Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), a pleiotropic proinflammatory cytokine, has been showed to be associated with the immunopathogenesis of many diseases. Recent study demonstrated that MIF promoted tumorigenesis and tumor progression and played a critical role in various kinds of human cancer including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma(HNSCC). Hence, in this paper we retrospected the relationship between MIF and angiogenesis, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), inflammation, immune response, hypoxia microenvironment, and discussed whether it is a promising biomarker for diagnosis and supervisor of HNSCC...

Platelets are known to play a critical role in thrombosis and hemostasis. However, recent studies demonstrated that beyond their role in thrombosis and hemostasis, platelets are also involved in the regulation of tissue repair and regeneration. Increasing number of studies on the roles of platelets in tissue repair showed that various growth factors, chemokines as well as cytokines secreted from activated platelets regulate injured tissue repair and regeneration with the main mechanisms being through regulation of cell migration, proliferation, and angiogenesis, cell apoptosis and survival...

Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are an activated sub-population of stromal fibroblast that have the ability to synthesize, deposit and remodel the extracellular matrix. They produce and secrete cytokines and growth factors that promote tumor growth, angiogenesis, inflammation and contribute to drug resistance (Micke and Ostman, 2005). CAFs are abundant constituents of many epithelial tumors. Less is known about CAFs in non-epithelial cancers, such as melanoma, but in vitro data suggest similar roles in tumor development and progression (Kim et al...

: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most frequent tumors worldwide with rising incidence. The inflammatory cytokine interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a critical mediator of HCC development. It can signal through two distinct pathways, the IL-6 classic and the IL-6 trans-signaling pathway. While IL-6 classic signaling is important for innate and acquired immunity, IL-6 trans-signaling has been linked to accelerated liver regeneration and several chronic inflammatory pathologies. However, its implication in liver tumorigenesis has not been addressed yet...

Silicosis is a crippling respiratory disorder characterized by massive lung inflammation and fibrosis. The current study provides evidence on the protective potential of tadalafil; a specific phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitor against experimentally-induced pulmonary silicosis in rats. Silicosis was induced by intranasal instillation of crystalline silica (50mg/rat). Halofuginone hydrobromide; a standard collagen-1 synthesis inhibitor was selected as a reference anti-fibrotic. Daily oral administration of tadalafil (1mg/kg) for 8weeks significantly ameliorated silica-induced pulmonary damage...
