(Washington University School of Medicine) There’s yet another reason to maintain a healthy weight as we age. An international team of researchers has identified eight additional types of cancer linked to excess weight and obesity: stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, ovary, meningioma (a type of brain tumor), thyroid cancer and the blood cancer multiple myeloma.

In 2006, Noble Prize laureate Shinya Yamanaka discovered that a set of transcription factors can reprogram terminally differentiated somatic cells to a pluripotent stem cell state. Since then, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have come into the public spotlight. Amidst a growing field of promising clinical uses of iPSCs in recent years, cancer disease modeling has emerged as a particularly promising and rapidly translatable application of iPSCs. Technological advances in genome editing over the past few years have facilitated increasingly rapid pro…
ConclusionAll these findings propose that tumor cells are subjected to metabolic reprogramming after LMW-PTP silencing, enhancing glycolytic flux, probably to compensate the inhibition of mitochondrial metabolism.General significance.Our results highlight the involvement of LMW-PTP in regulating glucose metabolism in A375 melanoma cells.
In conclusion, this study provides an insight about the role of exogenous H2S in TNBC cell lines highlighting a novel crosstalk between H2S and NO orchestrated by sONE/NOS3 axis.

INTRODUCTION: Ramucirumab, a human monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2), is an antiangiogenic therapy that has been approved in combination with FOLFIRI in second-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), after progression on or after therapy with bevacizumab, oxaliplatin and a fluoropyrimidine. A thorough review of the safety of ramucirumab in this setting and in the context of other antiangiogenic agents is merited. Areas covered: We provide an o…

In the present study an attempt has been made to synthesize AgNPs by using the outer accrescent fruiting calyx of Physalis peruviana fruits, a food waste material unde…

Tijsterman, Harrie P. Beerlage, Christophe K. Mannaerts, Lars Schimmöller, Peter Albers, Christian ArsovAbstractBackgroundThe Rotterdam European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer risk calculators (ERSPC-RCs) help to avoid unnecessary transrectal ultrasound-guided systematic biopsies (TRUS-Bx). Multivariable risk stratification could also avoid unnecessary biopsies following multiparametric magnetic reson…
Publication date: Available online 3 August 2018Source: Preventive MedicineAuthor(s): Jennifer L. Moss, Qian Xiao, Charles E. MatthewsAbstractMultiple health behaviors could have greater impact on chronic diseases than single behaviors, but correlates of behavioral clusters are relatively understudied. Using data from NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study (initiated in 1995) for 324,522 participants from the U.S. (age 50–71), we conducted exploratory factor analysis to identify clusters of adherence to eight cancer prevention behaviors. Poisson regressions examined associations between cluster scores and neighborhood socioe…

ConclusionManagement is rarely changed by one-month post-SIRT imaging in patients with HCC and thus is likely unwarranted. Conversely, in non-HCC patients, one month post-SIRT imaging led to a significant percentage of clinical management changes suggesting that one month imaging in this setting is likely warranted.
