WHO Classification of Tumours 5th Edition: Evolving Issues in Classification, Diagnosis and Prognostication of Prostate Cancer.

Histopathology 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The 5 edition of the WHO Classification of Tumours of the Urinary and Male Genital Systems encompasses several updates to the classification and diagnosis of prostatic carcinoma as well as incorporating advancements in assessment of its prognosis, including recent grading modifications. Some of the salient aspects include: 1) recognition that PIN-like carcinoma is not synonymous with a pattern of ductal carcinoma but better classified as a subtype of acinar adenocarcinoma; 2) a specific section on treatment-related neuroendocrine prostatic carcinoma in view of the tight correlation between androgen deprivation therapy and the development of prostatic carcinoma with neuroendocrine morphology, and the emerging data on lineage plasticity; 3) a terminology change of basal cell carcinoma to "adenoid cystic (basal cell) cell carcinoma" given the presence of an underlying MYB::NFIB gene fusion in many cases; 4) discussion of the current issues in the grading of acinar adenocarcinoma and the prognostic significance of cribriform growth patterns; and 5) more detailed coverage of intraductal carcinoma of prostate (IDC-P) reflecting our increased knowledge of this entity, while recommending the descriptive term atypical intraductal proliferation (AIP) for lesions falling short of IDC-P but containing more atypia than typically seen in high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN). Lesions previously regarded as cribriform patterns of HGPIN are now included in the AIP category. Read More

Identifying Candidates for Immunotherapy among Patients with Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer: A Review of the Potential Predictors of Response.

J Clin Med 2022 Jun 11;11(12). Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Dermatology Clinic, Maggiore Hospital, University of Trieste, 34125 Trieste, Italy.

Background: Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) stands as an umbrella term for common cutaneous malignancies, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC), together with rarer cutaneous cancers, such as Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) and other forms of adnexal cancers. The majority of NMSCs can be successfully treated with surgery or radiotherapy, but advanced and metastatic stages may require systemic approaches such as immunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs).

Summary: Since immunotherapy is not effective in all patients and can potentially lead to severe adverse effects, an important clinical question is how to properly identify those who could be suitable candidates for this therapeutic choice. Read More

Halogenated bisphenol a analogues induce PPARγ-independent toxicity within human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.

Curr Res Toxicol 2022 13;3:100079. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Environmental Sciences, University of California, Riverside, CA, USA.

Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) and tetrachlorobisphenol A (TCBPA) - both halogenated bisphenol (BPA) analogues - are suspected ligands of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ). While previous studies have shown that TBBPA and TCBPA activate PPARγ within cell-free assays, the downstream effects of TBBPA- and TCBPA-induced PPARγ activation on cellular transcription and physiology have not been thoroughly investigated. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine whether exposure to TBBPA or TCBPA (either alone or in combination) alters levels of neutral lipids and fatty acid synthase (FASN) - an enzyme that catalyzes synthesis of long-chain saturated fatty acids - within intact cells in a PPARγ-dependent manner.

Inhibition of mTORC1/2 and DNA-PK via CC-115 Synergizes with Carboplatin and Paclitaxel in Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Mol Cancer Ther 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, United States.

Only a small percentage (< 1%) of patients with late-stage lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) are eligible for targeted therapy. Because PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling, particularly PIK3CA, is dysregulated in two-thirds of LUSC, and DNA damage response pathways are enriched in LUSC, we tested whether CC-115, a dual mTORC1/2 and DNA-PK inhibitor, sensitizes LUSC to chemotherapy. We demonstrate that CC-115 synergizes with carboplatin in 6 of 14 NSCLC cell lines, primarily PIK3CA-mutant LUSC. Read More

Hypoxia-inducible lentiviral gene expression in engineered human macrophages.

J Immunother Cancer 2022 Jun;10(6)

Mozart Therapeutics, Seattle, Washington, USA

Background: Human immune cells, including monocyte-derived macrophages, can be engineered to deliver proinflammatory cytokines, bispecific antibodies, and chimeric antigen receptors to support immune responses in different disease settings. When gene expression is regulated by constitutively active promoters, lentiviral payload gene expression is unregulated, and can result in potentially toxic quantities of proteins. Regulated delivery of lentivirally encoded proteins may allow localized or conditional therapeutic protein expression to support safe delivery of adoptively transferred, genetically modified cells with reduced capacity for systemic toxicities.
