Algorithms for ascertaining keratinocyte carcinomas using health insurance claims and prescription records.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia.

Skin cancer is the most common human malignancy with an ongoing continual increase in global incidence. Despite their high prevalence, keratinocyte carcinomas (KCs), namely basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), are often excluded from population-based cancer registries. As there are over 3000 defined skin disease varieties that can be diagnosed, robust ascertainment methods are needed to capture KC cases for epidemiologic purposes. Read More

Subverted regulation of Nox1 NADPH oxidase-dependent oxidant generation by protein disulfide isomerase A1 in colon carcinoma cells with overactivated KRas.

Cell Death Dis 2019 Feb 13;10(2):143. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

LIM 64, Instituto do Coracao (InCor), Hospital das Clinicas HCFMUSP, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Protein disulfide isomerases including PDIA1 are implicated in cancer progression, but underlying mechanisms are unclear. PDIA1 is known to support vascular Nox1 NADPH oxidase expression/activation. Since deregulated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production underlies tumor growth, we proposed that PDIA1 is an upstream regulator of tumor-associated ROS. Read More

Targeting the Hedgehog Pathway in Cancer: Current Evidence and Future Perspectives.

Cells 2019 Feb 12;8(2). Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Division of Medical Oncology, Hospital Sírio-Libanês, Brasilia, 70200-730, Brazil.

The Hedgehog pathway (HhP) plays an important role in normal embryonic development and its abnormal function has been linked to a variety of neoplasms. Recently, the complex mechanisms involved in this pathway have been deciphered and the cross talks with other important pathways involved in carcinogenesis have been characterized. This knowledge has led to the development of targeted therapies against key components of HhP, which culminated in the approval of vismodegib for the treatment of advanced basal cell carcinoma in 2012.

Polyamine Metabolism as a Therapeutic Target inHedgehog-Driven Basal Cell Carcinomaand Medulloblastoma.

Cells 2019 Feb 11;8(2). Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Molecular Medicine, Sapienza University, 00161 Rome, Italy.

Hedgehog (Hh) signaling is a critical developmental regulator and its aberrant activation,due to somatic or germline mutations of genes encoding pathway components, causes Basal CellCarcinoma (BCC) and medulloblastoma (MB). A growing effort has been devoted at theidentification of druggable vulnerabilities of the Hedgehog signaling, leading to the identificationof various compounds with variable efficacy and/or safety. Emerging evidence shows that anaberrant polyamine metabolism is a hallmark of Hh-dependent tumors and that itspharmacological inhibition elicits relevant therapeutic effects in clinical or preclinical models ofBCC and MB.

Immunoexpression of Transforming Growth Factor Beta 3 (TGFβ3) and Its Receptor Type III (TGFβRIII) in Basal Cell Carcinomas.

Curr Health Sci J 2018 Apr-Jun;44(2):166-171. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Department of Infant Care-Pediatrics-Neonatology, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania.

Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are malignant tumors with particular biological prognosis and behavior, and the biomolecular investigation of these lesions can provide important therapeutic targets for epithelial neoplasia. In this study we analyzed the immunoexpression of transforming growth factor beta 3 (TGFβ3) and its receptor type III (TGFβRIII) for 53 cases of BCC in relation to the main histopathological prognostic parameters. The results indicated statistically significant differences of TGFβ3 and TGFβRIII expression related to histological type and lesion stage, the both proteins being higher expressed in adenoid and morpheaform advanced stage tumors.

Long noncoding RNAs predict the survival of patients with colorectal cancer as revealed by constructing an endogenous RNA network using bioinformation analysis.

Cancer Med 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

The Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Jiangsu Cancer Hospital, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are aberrantly expressed in various cancers types and can function as competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs), which promote and maintain tumor initiation and progression. In this study, we explored the functional roles and regulatory mechanisms of lncRNAs as ceRNAs in colorectal cancer and their clinical potential as biomarkers. The RNA sequencing profiles of patients with colorectal cancer were downloaded from TCGA database, and 62 lncRNAs, 30miRNAs, and 59 mRNAs were identified to comprise the ceRNA network (fold change > 2, P < 0.

De Novo PITX1 Expression Controls Bi-Stable Transcriptional Circuits to Govern Self-Renewal and Differentiation in Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Cell Stem Cell 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA; New York University School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Basal tumor propagating cells (TPCs) control squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) growth by self-renewing and differentiating into supra-basal SCC cells, which lack proliferative potential. While transcription factors such as SOX2 and KLF4 can drive these behaviors, their molecular roles and regulatory interactions with each other have remained elusive. Here, we show that PITX1 is specifically expressed in TPCs, where it co-localizes with SOX2 and TRP63 and determines cell fate in mouse and human SCC. Read More

Tissue-sparing properties of Mohs micrographic surgery for infiltrative basal cell carcinoma.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Department of Dermatology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, the Netherlands; Department of Dermatology, Roosevelt Clinic, Leiden, the Netherlands. Electronic address:

Background: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) should lead to tissue sparing of healthy skin compared to standard surgical excision, because smaller surgical margins are used.

Objective: To quantify the tissue-sparing properties of MMS in primary basal cell carcinoma (BCC) with an infiltrative growth pattern.

Methods: A prospective study including 256 primary BCC with an infiltrative growth pattern was performed. Read More

Epigenetic regulation of iASPP-p63 feedback loop in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.

J Invest Dermatol 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research, Blizard Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary London University, London E1 2AT, UK. Electronic address:

Keratinocyte skin cancer, comprising cutaneous squamous (cSCC) and basal cell carcinoma, is the most common malignancy in the UK. P53 is frequently mutated in cSCC. iASPP is a key inhibitor of p53 and NF-kB signalling pathways and has been documented as highly expressed in several types of human cancer. Read More

Understanding roofers' sun protection behaviour: A qualitative study.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

The incidence of keratinocyte carcinoma (KC), which includes squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and actinic keratosis (AK), has steadily increased in the last few decades; moreover, KC is the most common malignancy in Caucasians worldwide. As exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is the main risk factor for KC, outdoor workers bear a high risk for KC. Therefore, SCC and AK were officially recognised as occupational diseases in Germany in 2015. Read More

Loss of primary cilia drives switching from Hedgehog to Ras/MAPK pathway in resistant basal cell carcinoma.

J Invest Dermatol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Program in Epithelial Biology and Department of Dermatology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford CA, United States of America. Electronic address:

Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) rely on Hedgehog (HH) pathway growth signal amplification by the microtubule-based organelle, the primary cilium. Despite naïve tumors responsiveness to Smoothened inhibitors (Smo), resistance in advanced tumors remains frequent. While the resistant BCCs usually maintain HH pathway activation, squamous cell carcinomas with Ras/MAPK pathway activation also arise, with the molecular basis of tumor type and pathway selection still obscure.

Misactivation of Hedgehog signaling causes inherited and sporadic cancers.

J Clin Invest 2019 Feb 1;129(2):465-475. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, UCSF, San Francisco, California, USA.

The Hedgehog pathway is critical for the development of diverse organs. Misactivation of the Hedgehog pathway can cause developmental abnormalities and cancers, including medulloblastoma, the most common pediatric brain tumor, and basal cell carcinoma, the most common cancer in the United States. Here, we review how basic, translational, and clinical studies of the Hedgehog pathway have helped reveal how cells communicate, how intercellular communication controls development, how signaling goes awry to cause cancer, and how to use targeted molecular agents to treat both inherited and sporadic cancers.
