Benef Microbes 2019 Apr 23:1-14. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

2 Clinical Research Center, Schauenburgerstraβe 116, 24118 Kiel, Germany.

We aimed at assessing the evidence for an effect on vaginal dysbiosis by oral administration of a mixture of strains isolated from vaginal microbiota. For this purpose, we systematically reviewed the literature for randomised clinical trials (RCTs) in which the effect of oral administration of a mixture of four strains ( LbV 88 (DSM 22566), LbV 150N (DSM 22583), LbV 116 (DSM 22567) and LbV96 (DSM 22560)) on vaginal dysbiosis was examined based on Nugent score. Four RCTs were identified: a double-blind (DB)-RCT in 60 male-to-female transsexual women with neovagina; an open label RCT in 60 pregnant women with herpes virus infection; a DB-RCT in 36 women with bacterial vaginosis; a DB-RCT in 22 postmenopausal breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.

Association of CYP19A1 single-nucleotide polymorphism with digit ratio (2D:4D) in a sample of men and women from Ningxia (China).

Early Hum Dev 2019 May 12;132:58-65. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

School of Basic Medicine, Ningxia Medical University, Yinchuan, Ningxia 750004, China; Key Laboratory of Fertility Preservation and Maintenance of the Ministry of Education, Ningxia Medical University, Yinchuan, Ningxia 750004, China. Electronic address:

Objectives: 2D:4D is an anthropometric indicator that may reflect the level of intrauterine sexual hormone exposure before birth. The aromatase gene (CYP19A1) mainly encodes cytochrome P450 aromatase, a key enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of androgens to estrogens in vivo and affects the development of 2D:4D. Studying the association between six single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CYP19A1 and digit ratios in the normal population of China will provide some basis for the biological basis of digit ratio development and promote the practical application of digit ratios.

Sulfisoxazole inhibits the secretion of small extracellular vesicles by targeting the endothelin receptor A.

Nat Commun 2019 03 27;10(1):1387. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Molecular Medicine, CMRI, Exosome Convergence Research Center (ECRC), School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, 41944, Republic of Korea.

Inhibitors of the secretion of cancer exosomes, which promote cancer progression and metastasis, may not only accelerate exosome biology research but also offer therapeutic benefits for cancer patients. Here we identify sulfisoxazole (SFX) as an inhibitor of small extracellular vesicles (sEV) secretion from breast cancer cells through interference with endothelin receptor A (ETA). SFX, an FDA-approved oral antibiotic, showed significant anti-tumor and anti-metastatic effects in mouse models of breast cancer xenografts, the reduced expression of proteins involved in biogenesis and secretion of sEV, and triggered co-localization of multivesicular endosomes with lysosomes for degradation.

Brain region-specific regulation of histone acetylation and efflux transporters in mice.

J Biochem Mol Toxicol 2019 Mar 21:e22318. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, Piscataway, New Jersey.

Multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1) and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) protect the brain by restricting the passage of chemicals across the blood-brain barrier. Prior studies have demonstrated the epigenetic regulation of MDR1 and BCRP in cancer cells treated with histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors that enhance histone acetylation and gene transcription. In the present study, we tested the in vivo effects of two HDAC inhibitors, valproic acid (VPA; 400 mg/kg) and apicidin (5 mg/kg), on Mdr1 and Bcrp transporter expression in brain regions of adult male mice injected intraperitoneally daily for 7 days.

Sex Hormones and Anticancer Immunity.

Clin Cancer Res 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

International Cancer Prevention Institute, Epalinges, Switzerland.

The impact of sex hormones on anticancer immunity deserves attention due to the importance of the immune system in cancer therapy and the recognition of sex differences in immunity. Cancer is ultimately the result of failed immune surveillance, and the diverging effects of male and female sex hormones on anticancer immunity could contribute to the higher cancer incidence and poorer outcome in men. Estrogens and androgens affect the number and function of immune cells, an effect that depends on cell type, tumor microenvironment, and the age and reproductive status of the individual. Read More
