TGF-β/PI3K/AKT/mTOR/NF-kB pathway. Clinicopathological features in prostate cancer.

Aging Male 2019 Apr 11:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

a Department of Biomedicine and Biotechnology , University of Alcalá , Madrid , Spain.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in the male population. The objective of this investigation was to study the relationship of components of transforming growth factor-B (TGF-β)/phosphoinositide-3-kinases (PI3K)/AKT/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)/nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB) transduction pathway with clinical-pathological markers. By immunohistochemical methods, we determined the expression of several factors [TGF-β, Transforming Growth Factor B Receptor I (TGFBRI), TGFBRII, PI3K, AKT-Ser, AKT-Thr, mTOR, p-mTOR, inhibitor kB kinase (IKK), pIKK, inhibitor kB (IkB), pIkB, NF-kBp50, and NF-kBp65].

Male age is associated with sperm DNA/chromatin integrity.

Aging Male 2019 Apr 9:1-8. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

e Andrology Center , Coimbatore , India.

The diagnosis of sperm DNA integrity is increasingly recognized as being crucial to inform the clinical course in infertile couples. An internationally accepted sperm DNA fragmentation assay that determines the proportion of sperm and degree of broken sperm nuclear DNA with recognised clinical thresholds for identifying men at risk of infertility is the Sperm Chromatin Structure Assay (SCSA). In this study, SCSA test was utilised to evaluate the relevance of male age on sperm DNA quality in total of 6881 males of Indian origin. Read More

d Center for science, Clinical cente of Montenegro , Podgorica , Montenegro.

We aimed to analyze the correlation of perineural invasion on transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy with predictors of biochemical cancer recurrence, as well as its impact on clinical outcomes, for non-metastatic prostate cancer. For the study, patients with perineural invasion (N = 86) were recruited into group I and underwent open retropubic prostatectomy, regardless of clinical stage; cases with prostate cancer but without perineural invasion on biopsy, who received radical prostatectomy as the treatment modality, were placed into group II (n = 90). Perineural invasion was detected preoperatively in 43% of cases that revealed surgical margin positivity postoperatively, while 85% of the remaining cases (group II) had negative surgical margins.

e Department of Biochemistry , Yildirim Beyazit University Faculty of Medicine , Ankara , Turkey.

Serum Total Thiol (TT), Native Thiol (NT), and Disulfide (SS) levels were found significantly lower in benign proliferative pathologies and cancer disease compared to healthy subjects. We conducted this prospective study to investigate the possible predictive and prognostic significance of these markers in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which is one of the most associated cancers with oxidative stress. This was a non-randomized, prospective, and case-control study of 120 subjects, including 60 patients with metastatic or inoperable NSCLC at the time of diagnosis and 60 demographically-matched controls.
