It has been shown that nuclear expression of S100A4 is significantly correlated with increased metastasis and reduced survival in patients with gastric cancer and many other cancers. However, the factors which could influence the nuclear contents of S100A4 in cancer cells are not clear. It has also been reported that Interleukin-1β (IL-1β) promotes the nuclear translocation of S100A4 in chondrocytes. Previous studies have shown that IL-1β promotes the stemness of colon cancer cells, and S100A4 is also involved in maintaining cancer-initiating cells in head and neck cancers...

Background & Aims: Atrophic gastritis caused by chronic inflammation in the gastric mucosa leads to the loss of gastric glandular cells, including acid-secreting parietal cells. Parietal cell atrophy in a setting of chronic inflammation induces spasmolytic polypeptide expressing metaplasia, a critical step in gastric carcinogenesis. However, the mechanisms by which inflammation causes parietal cell atrophy and spasmolytic polypeptide expressing metaplasia are not well defined. We investigated the role of interleukin-17A (IL-17A) in causing parietal cell atrophy...

The role of extended lymphadenectomy in the surgical treatment of gastric cancer has been debated for many years. So far six prospective randomized trials and a number of meta-analyses comparing D1 - to D2 -lymphadenectomy in open surgery have been published with contradicting results. The possible oncologic benefit of radical lymphadenectomy has been blurred by a number of reasons. In most of the trials the strategies under comparison were made similar after protocol violations. Imperfect design of the trials could not exclude the influence of cofounding factors...

Apatinib is an oral TKI with anti-angiogenesis properties, and it is currently approved for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer in China. This agent has also been tested in other human solid tumors, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Since the combination of chemotherapy and an anti-angiogenesis agent has been shown to be feasible strategy in NSCLC, it is conceivable that a similar approach combining apatinib with chemotherapy may yield clinical activity. With this in mind, we investigated the efficiency of apatinib in combination with pemetrexed or docetaxel in advanced NSCLC...

BACKGROUND: Novel non-invasive biomarkers for gastric cancer (GC) are needed, because the present diagnostic methods for GC are either invasive or insensitive and non-specific in clinic. The presence of stable circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) in plasma suggested a promising role as GC biomarkers. METHODS: Based on the quantitative droplet digital PCR (ddPCR), four miRNAs (miR-21, miR-93, miR-106a and miR-106b) related to the presence of GC were identified in plasma from a training cohort of 147 participants and a validation cohort of 28 participants...

Bromodomain-containing protein 4 (Brd4) is known to play a key role in tumorigenesis. It binds acetylated histones to regulate the expression of numerous genes. Because of the importance of brd4 in tumorigenesis, much research has been undertaken to develop brd4 inhibitors with therapeutic potential. As a result, various scaffolds for bromodomain inhibitors have been identified. To discover new scaffolds, we performed mid-throughput screening using two different enzyme assays, alpha-screen and ELISA. We found a novel bromodomain inhibitor with a unique scaffold, aristoyagonine...

An estimated 990,000 new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed worldwide each year. Surgical excision, the only chance for prolonged survival, is feasible in about 20% of cases. Even after surgery, the median survival is limited to 12 to 20 months due to the frequency of locoregional and/or metastatic recurrences. This led to clinical trials associating surgery with neoadjuvant or adjuvant treatments to improve tumor control and patient survival. The most studied modalities are perioperative chemotherapy and adjuvant chemoradiotherapy...

Fatty acid synthase (FASN), the main enzyme involved in de novo lipogenesis, is overexpressed in several types of tumor tissues. In addition, it is associated with tumor cell proliferation, metastasis, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and a poor prognosis. However, the precise functions and internal mechanisms of FASN with regard to the proliferation, metastasis and EMT in gastric cancer (GC) cells remain elusive. The present study investigated FASN protein expression in 18 randomly selected pairs of GC tumors and matched normal tissues by western blot analysis...

Chronic inflammation and immunosuppression lead to aging and tumorigenesis. T-helper 22 (Th22) cells, interleukin 22 (IL-22) and myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) serve an important role in inflammatory-immune diseases and cancer. However, the status of Th22 cells, IL-22 and MDSCs in aging and elderly gastric cancer progression is unknown. In the present study, 39 elderly patients with gastric cancer (EGC), 32 elderly healthy controls (HE) and 31 young healthy controls (HY) were enrolled, and the peripheral Th22, Th17 and Th1 cells, and MDSCs, were examined using flow cytometry...

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common type of cancer and the second most common cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. B cell-associated autoantibodies against tumor-associated antigens are attractive biomarkers for the development of noninvasive serological tests for the early detection of cancer. This is due to their specificity and stability in the sera. In the present study multiplex polymerase chain reaction and Illumina high-throughput sequencing (HTS) was used to study the composition and variation of the B cell receptor (BCR) complimentary-determining region 3 (CDR3) in GC...
