Stem cell exosomes inhibit angiogenesis and tumor growth of oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Sci Rep 2019 Jan 24;9(1):663. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Cells for Cells, Santiago, Chile.

Recently, exosomes secreted by menstrual mesenchymal stem cells have been identified as inhibitory agents of tumor angiogenesis and modulators of the tumor cell secretome in prostate and breast cancer. However, their direct effect on endothelial cells and paracrine mediators have not yet been investigated. Using a carrier-based cell culture system to test the scalability for exosome production, we showed that different types of endothelial cells present specific kinetics for exosomes internalization.

Dose coverage comparison between "interstitial catheter-only" and "hybrid intracavitary-interstitial brachytherapy" for early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the buccal mucosa.

J Contemp Brachytherapy 2018 Oct 31;10(5):486-491. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Radiation Oncology, National Cancer Center Hospital, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Purpose: When squamous cell carcinoma of the buccal mucosa (BSCC) extends surrounding anatomical sites such as gingiva, retromolar triangle, or hard palate, it might be challenging to ensure adequate tumor coverage by sole interstitial brachytherapy due to the complexity of catheter implantation. By combining interstitial catheters with an enoral placed, individually assembled "oral spacer plus embedded catheters" device (hybrid of intracavitary-interstitial brachytherapy), it should be easier to deliver the necessary tumoricidal dose to irregular-shaped tumor volumes (clinical target volume - CTV) with improved conformity. The purpose of this analysis was to compare the dose distribution created by the hybrid of intracavitary-interstitial brachytherapy (HBT) with the dose distribution of an interstitial catheter only-approach, based on the interstitial catheters used for HBT (ISBT-only) by evaluating respective treatment plans (HBT plan vs. Read More

Determinants of level Ib involvement in oral squamous cell carcinoma and implications for submandibular gland-sparing neck dissection.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 29;47(12):1507-1510. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Department of Head and Neck Oncology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kochi, Kerala, India.

Traditional neck dissection for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) involves removal of the submandibular salivary gland. Several studies have cited the low incidence of direct gland invasion by tumours and have recommended gland-sparing neck dissection. In this study, a detailed audit of level Ib involvement in OSCC was performed in order to assess the feasibility of submandibular gland-sparing in neck dissection; the rate of direct involvement by the primary tumours, the involvement of periglandular level Ib nodes, and their determinants were investigated.

PEGylated liposome-encapsulated rhenium-188 radiopharmaceutical inhibits proliferation and epithelial-mesenchymal transition of human head and neck cancer cells in vivo with repeated therapy.

Cell Death Discov 2018 31;4:100. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

1Department of Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Sciences, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is usually treated with chemoradiotherapy, but the therapeutic efficacy could be hampered by intrinsic radioresistance and early relapse. Repeated administrations of rhenium-188 (Re)-conjugated radiopharmaceutical has been reported to escalate the radiation doses for better control of advanced human cancers. Here we found that high dosage of Re-liposome, the liposome-encapsulated Re nanoparticles exhibited significant killing effects on HNSCC FaDu cells and SAS cells but not on OECM-1 cells. Read More

Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma: Report of two rare cases and review of literature.

J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2018 May-Aug;22(2):285

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Mamata Dental College, Khammam, Telangana, India.

Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) is a histologically distinct variant of SCC in the head-and-neck region it occurs most commonly in older men with a history of heavy smoking and alcohol abuse and usually presents as a high stage disease with widespread metastases and hence poor prognosis. BSCC is believed to arise from a totipotential primitive cell in the basal layer of the surface epithelium or from the salivary duct lining epithelium. BSCC is an uncommon tumor with a predilection for the upper aerodigestive tract, is a distinct variant of squamous carcinoma, due to its unique histological features and ominous clinical behavior.
