A novel bis-aryl urea compound inhibits tumor proliferation via cathepsin D-associated apoptosis
A novel bis-aryl urea compound inhibits tumor proliferation via cathepsin D-associated apoptosis: Derivatives of bis-aryl urea have been widely investigated for their various biological activities, such as antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative. We evaluated a new chemical entity consisting of bis-aryl urea moiety, N69B, for its anticancer activities and explored their underlying molecular mechanism. The compound inhibited proliferation of multiple types of murine and human cancer cells...

A metanalysis on cabozantinib and bone metastases: true story or commercial gimmick?
A metanalysis on cabozantinib and bone metastases: true story or commercial gimmick?: Is it true that cabozantinib should be the preferred option treating patients with bone metastases? Are there any reliable comparisons between this drug and other standard options in this subgroup? To address the issue, we performed a systematic review and metanalysis of randomized trials with cabozantinib, to assess its effectiveness, in terms of overall survival, according to the presence of bone metastases. We...

miR-7641 depletion suppresses proliferation of gastric cancer cells by targeting ARID1A
miR-7641 depletion suppresses proliferation of gastric cancer cells by targeting ARID1A: Gastric cancer (GC) is lethal and there is an urgent need for improved understanding of this disease. Recent studies have reported that microRNAs (miRNAs) play increasingly important roles in the regulation of GC. In this study, we explored the target genes and effects of miR-7641 in GC. Our data showed that high miR-7641 expression was associated with low expression of ARID1A in GC tissue. miR-7641 expression...

Combination treatment of bicalutamide and curcumin has a strong therapeutic effect on androgen receptor-positive triple-negative breast cancers
Combination treatment of bicalutamide and curcumin has a strong therapeutic effect on androgen receptor-positive triple-negative breast cancers: Triple-negative breast cancers account for approximately 15–20% of breast cancer patients. Due to lack of expression of estrogen receptor, PR and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 in triple-negative breast cancers, there are no targeted therapies available for these cancers. Therefore, a major research priority is to find potential therapeutic targets....

A pre-existing population of ZEB2 + quiescent cells with stemness and mesenchymal features dictate chemoresistance in colorectal cancer
A pre-existing population of ZEB2 + quiescent cells with stemness and mesenchymal features dictate chemoresistance in colorectal cancer: AbstractBackgroundQuiescent/slow cycling cells have been identified in several tumors and correlated with therapy resistance. However, the features of chemoresistant populations and the molecular factors linking quiescence to chemoresistance are largely unknown.MethodsA population of chemoresistant quiescent/slow cycling cells was isolated through PKH26 staining...

10D1F, an Anti-HER3 Antibody that Uniquely Blocks the Receptor Heterodimerization Interface, Potently Inhibits Tumor Growth Across a Broad Panel of Tumor Models
10D1F, an Anti-HER3 Antibody that Uniquely Blocks the Receptor Heterodimerization Interface, Potently Inhibits Tumor Growth Across a Broad Panel of Tumor Models: In recent years, HER3 has increasingly been implicated in the progression of a variety of tumor types and in acquired resistance to EGFR and HER2 therapies. Whereas EGFR and HER2 primarily signal through the MAPK pathway, HER3, as a heterodimer with EGFR or HER2, potently activates the PI3K pathway. Despite its critical role, previous attempts...

Regulatory T cell depletion alters the tumor microenvironment and accelerates pancreatic carcinogenesis. [Research Articles]
Regulatory T cell depletion alters the tumor microenvironment and accelerates pancreatic carcinogenesis. [Research Articles]: Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are abundant ion human and mouse pancreatic cancer. To understand the contribution to the immunosuppressive microenvironment, we depleted Tregs in a mouse model of pancreatic cancer. Contrary to our expectations, Treg depletion failed to relieve immunosuppression, and led to accelerated tumor progression. We show that Tregs are a key source of TGFβ...

Efficacy of FGFR inhibitors and combination therapies for acquired resistance in FGFR2-fusion cholangiocarcinoma
Efficacy of FGFR inhibitors and combination therapies for acquired resistance in FGFR2-fusion cholangiocarcinoma: The fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) signaling pathway is aberrantly activated in approximately 15-20% of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma patients. Currently, several FGFR kinase inhibitors are being assessed in clinical trials for patients with FGFR-altered cholangiocarcinoma. Despite evidence of initial responses and disease control, virtually all patients eventually develop...

Racial Differences in the Association between Luminal Master Regulator Gene Expression Levels and Breast Cancer Survival
Racial Differences in the Association between Luminal Master Regulator Gene Expression Levels and Breast Cancer Survival: Purpose: Compared to their European American (EA) counterparts, African American (AA) women are more likely to die from breast cancer in the United States. This disparity is greatest in hormone receptor-positive subtypes. Here we uncover biological factors underlying this disparity by comparing functional expression and prognostic significance of master transcriptional regulators...
