J Oral Pathol Med 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Center of Stomatology, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, 410000, China.

Background: G3BP1 is a prognostic biomarker for many types of cancers; however, its role in oral squamous cell carcinoma remains unclear. We investigated the role of G3BP1 as a potential biomarker for proliferation, apoptosis and prognosis in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Methods: We obtained samples of normal oral mucosa (n = 17), of oral squamous cell carcinoma tissues (n = 61) and paired adjacent tissues (n = 47) from Xiangya Hospital for immunohistochemical evaluation to measure the expression of G3BP1, E-cadherin, Ki67, and Cleaved-caspase3. Read More

[Intestinal Care Using L‒Glutamine Supplement and Probiotics Can Induce a Strong Anti‒Tumor Immune Response through the Induction of Mature Tertiary Lymphoid Structures in Pancreatic Cancer Patients Receiving Preoperative Chemotherapy].

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2021 Apr;48(4):465-471

Dept. of Gastroenterological Surgery, Kanazawa University Hospital.

Most cancer patients receiving chemotherapy are accompanied by gut dysbiosis and intestinal mucosal barrier dysfunction to a greater or lesser degree. These disorders of the gut can easily cause bacterial translocation, resulting in the formation of immunothrombosis composed mainly of neutrophil extracellular traps and activated platelets in hepatic sinusoid in order to trap bacteria. At the same time, however, a lot of alarmin such as HMGB1, S100A8/S100A9 and VEGF‒A which are released from immunothrombosis, promote to recruit many myeloid‒derived suppressor cells(MDSCs)from bone marrow, leading to the strong immunosuppressive milieu in both liver and cancerous lesions.

Oral-Gut Microbiome Axis in Gastrointestinal Disease and Cancer.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Apr 28;13(9). Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Department of Oral Biology, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul 03722, Korea.

It is well-known that microbiota dysbiosis is closely associated with numerous diseases in the human body. The oral cavity and gut are the two largest microbial habitats, playing a major role in microbiome-associated diseases. Even though the oral cavity and gut are continuous regions connected through the gastrointestinal tract, the oral and gut microbiome profiles are well-segregated due to the oral-gut barrier.

Innovative Mucoadhesive Precursor of Liquid Crystalline System Loading Anti-Gellatinolytic Peptide for Topical Treatment of Oral Cancer.

J Biomed Nanotechnol 2021 Feb;17(2):253-262

UNESP, São Paulo State University, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Department of Drugs and Medicines, Araraquara, SP, 14800-903, Brazil.

Current researches report an actual benefit of a treatment for oral cancer via inhibition of proteolytic matrix metallopro-teinases (MPP) with a peptide drug, called CTT1. However, peptides present poor oral bioavailability. Topical administration on oral mucosa avoids its passage through the gastrointestinal tract and the first-pass liver metabolism, but the barrier function of the oral mucosa can impair the permeation and retention of CTT1.

Mouthwash Containing Vitamin E, Triamcinolon, and Hyaluronic Acid Compared to Triamcinolone Mouthwash Alone in Patients With Radiotherapy-Induced Oral Mucositis: Randomized Clinical Trial.

Front Oncol 2021 11;11:614877. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

Dental Research Center, Dentistry Research Institute, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.
