Significance of p53-Binding Protein 1 Nuclear Foci in Cervical Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions: Association With High-Risk Human Papillomavirus Infection and P16 Expression.

Cancer Control 2020 Jan-Dec;27(1):1073274819901170

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Nagasaki, Japan.

As p53-binding protein 1 (53BP1) localizes to the sites of DNA double-strand breaks and rapidly forms nuclear foci (NF), and its presence may be an indicator of endogenous genomic instability (GIN). We previously showed that 53BP1 NF in cervical cells increase with neoplastic progression, indicating the significance of 53BP1 expression for the estimation of malignant potential during cervical carcinogenesis. This study aimed to further elucidate the impact of 53BP1 expression as a biomarker for cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (SIL). Read More

Geographic-Level Association of Contemporary Changes in Localized and Metastatic Prostate Cancer Incidence in the Era of Decreasing PSA Screening.

Cancer Control 2020 Jan-Dec;27(1):1073274820902267

Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA.

Decreased prostate-specific antigen screening since 2008 has generated much concern, including report of recent increase in metastatic prostate cancer incidence among older men. Although increased metastatic disease was temporally proceeded by decreased screening and decreased localized prostate cancer at diagnosis, it is unclear whether the 2 trends are geographically connected. We therefore used the National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to assess geographic-specific associations between changes in localized (2008-2011) and later changes in metastatic prostate cancer incidence (2012-2015).
