FGF/FGFR signaling in adrenocortical development and tumorigenesis: novel potential therapeutic targets in adrenocortical carcinoma.

Endocrine 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Division of Endocrinology, Department of Internal Medicine I, University Hospital, University of Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

FGF/FGFR signaling regulates embryogenesis, angiogenesis, tissue homeostasis and wound repair by modulating proliferation, differentiation, survival, migration and metabolism of target cells. Understandably, compelling evidence for deregulated FGF signaling in the development and progression of different types of tumors continue to emerge and FGFR inhibitors arise as potential targeted therapeutic agents, particularly in tumors harboring aberrant FGFR signaling. There is first evidence of a dual role of the FGF/FGFR system in both organogenesis and tumorigenesis, of which this review aims to provide an overview. Read More

Endocr Connect 2022 May 1. Epub 2022 May 1.

D Xu, Department of Urology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Medical School Affiliated Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Purpose: To externally validate the performance of the S-GRAS score and a model from the SEER database in a Chinese cohort of patients with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC).

Tumor mutational burden presents limiting effects on predicting the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitors and prognostic assessment in adrenocortical carcinoma.

BMC Endocr Disord 2022 May 14;22(1):130. Epub 2022 May 14.

Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, No. 157, West Five Road, Xi'an, 710000, Shaanxi Province, China.

Background: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a highly malignant urologic cancer and tends to metastasize. Although immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) bring a glimmer of light to conquer ACC, only a fraction of patients have benefit from ICIs treatment. It is well known that tumor mutational burden (TMB) is closely associated with the efficacy and response rate of immunotherapy. Read More

Supportive therapies in patients with advanced adrenocortical carcinoma submitted to standard EDP-M regimen.

Endocrine 2022 May 14. Epub 2022 May 14.

Medical Oncology Unit, Department of Medical and Surgical Specialties, Radiological Sciences, and Public Health, University of Brescia, ASST Spedali Civili, Brescia, Italy.

Purpose: The management of patients with advanced/metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is challenging, EDP-M (etoposide, doxorubicin, cisplatin combined with mitotane) is the standard regimen. However, it is quite toxic, so an adequate supportive therapy is crucial to reduce as much as possible the side effects and maintain the dose intensity of cytotoxic agents.

Methods: We describe the main side effects of the EDP-M scheme and the best way to manage them based on the experience of the Medical Oncology Unit of the Spedali Civili of Brescia. Read More

Liquid biopsy for the assessment of adrenal cancer heterogeneity: where do we stand?

Endocrine 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Department of Internal Medicine and Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, Semmelweis University, H-1083, Budapest, Hungary.

Almost 10 years have passed since the first attempts of liquid biopsy aimed at the characterisation of tumor cells present in the bloodstream from a regular sample of peripheral blood were performed. Liquid biopsy has been used to characterise tumor heterogeneity in various types of solid tumors including adrenocortical carcinoma. The development of molecular biology, genetics, and methodological advances such as digital PCR and next-generation sequencing allowed us to use besides circulating tumor cells a variety of circulating cell-free nucleic acids, DNAs, RNAs and microRNAs secreted by tumors into blood and other body fluids as specific molecular markers.

Update on Biology and Genomics of Adrenocortical Carcinomas: Rationale for Emerging Therapies.

Endocr Rev 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology, and Diabetes, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

The adrenal glands are paired endocrine organs that produce steroid hormones and catecholamines required for life. Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare and often fatal cancer of the peripheral domain of the gland, the adrenal cortex. Recent research in adrenal development, homeostasis, and disease have refined our understanding of the cellular and molecular programs controlling cortical growth and renewal, uncovering crucial clues into how physiologic programs are hijacked in early and late stages of malignant neoplasia.

Impact of RSUME Actions on Biomolecular Modifications in Physio-Pathological Processes.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 21;13:864780. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Instituto de Investigación en Biomedicina de Buenos Aires (IBioBA) - Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) - Partner Institute of the Max Planck Society, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The small RWD domain-containing protein called RSUME or RWDD3 was cloned from pituitary tumor cells with increasing tumorigenic and angiogenic proficiency. RSUME expression is induced under hypoxia or heat shock and is upregulated, at several pathophysiological stages, in tissues like pituitary, kidney, heart, pancreas, or adrenal gland. To date, several factors with essential roles in endocrine-related cancer appear to be modulated by RWDD3. Read More

Expression of p11 and heteromeric TASK channels in mouse adrenal cortical cells and H295R cells.

Acta Histochem 2022 May 5;124(5):151898. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of Cell and Systems Physiology, University of Occupational and Environmental Health School of Medicine, Kitakyushu 807-8555, Japan. Electronic address:

TWIK-related acid-sensitive K (TASK) channels are thought to contribute to the resting membrane potential in adrenal cortical (AC) cells. However, the molecular identity of TASK channels in AC cells have not yet been elucidated. Thus, immunocytochemical and molecular biological approaches were employed to investigate the expression and intracellular distribution of TASK1 and TASK3 in mouse AC cells and H295R cells derived from human adrenocortical carcinoma.
