Can end-to-end anastomosis reduce the risks of anastomotic leak compared to side-to-end anastomosis? A comparative study of 518 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic total mesorectal excision for low- or mid-rectal cancer.

Tech Coloproctol 2021 Jun 13. Epub 2021 Jun 13.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Pôle des Maladies de l'Appareil Digestif (PMAD), Beaujon Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), University of Paris, 100 boulevard du Général Leclerc, 92110, Clichy, France.

Background: After laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) for low or mid-rectal cancer, we observed several cases of anastomotic leakage (AL) in patients with side-to-end anastomosis (STE). Thus, from December 2018, we routinely performed end-to-end anastomosis (ETE). The aim of this study was to assess if this new strategy changed AL and chronic pelvic sepsis rates in our department.

J Cancer Res Clin Oncol 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Division of Microbiology, Indian Council of Medical Research-National AIDS Research Institute, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Colorectal cancer is an important public health concern leading to significant cancer associate mortality. A vast majority of colon cancer arises from polyp which later follows adenoma, adenocarcinoma, and carcinoma sequence. This whole process takes several years to complete and recent genomic and proteomic technologies are identifying several targets involved in each step of polyp to carcinoma transformation in a large number of studies.

Biochem Biophys Rep 2021 Jul 24;26:101031. Epub 2021 May 24.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Japan.

Sporadic adenoma or adenocarcinoma is often detected during endoscopic surveillance of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). However, it is occasionally difficult to distinguish these neoplasms from dysplasia or colitis-associated cancers because of the influence of inflammation. However, the influence of inflammation on sporadic neoplasms is not well characterised. Read More

Northwell North Shore/Long Island Jewish, Department of Surgery, Queens, NY 11040, USA.

Complications after pancreatoduodenectomy are common, and range widely in timing of presentation, relation to pancreatobiliary pathology, and necessity of operative intervention. We present a case of a 74-year-old male with history of pancreatoduodenectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma who presented 11 months after index operation with cecal volvulus and required emergent right hemicolectomy. Prior history of pancreatoduodenectomy with mobilization of the right colon likely predisposed him to development of this surgical emergency. Read More

Novel Tdp1 Inhibitors Based on Adamantane Connected with Monoterpene Moieties via Heterocyclic Fragments.

Molecules 2021 May 24;26(11). Epub 2021 May 24.

Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, 8, Lavrentiev Ave., 630090 Novosibirsk, Russia.

Tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase 1 (Tdp1) is a promising target for anticancer therapy due to its ability to counter the effects topoisomerase 1 (Top1) poison, such as topotecan, thus, decreasing their efficacy. Compounds containing adamantane and monoterpenoid residues connected via 1,2,4-triazole or 1,3,4-thiadiazole linkers were synthesized and tested against Tdp1. All the derivatives exhibited inhibition at low micromolar or nanomolar concentrations with the most potent inhibitors having IC values in the 0. Read More

Lipoperoxide Nanoemulsion as Adjuvant in Cisplatin Cancer Therapy: In Vitro Study on Human Colon Adenocarcinoma DLD-1 Cells.

Nanomaterials (Basel) 2021 May 21;11(6). Epub 2021 May 21.

Department of Experimental Medicine, University of Genoa, 16132 Genoa, Italy.

Cisplatin is a first-choice chemotherapeutic agent used to treat solid tumors even though the onset of multi-drug resistance and the time-dose side-effects impair its mono-therapeutic application. Therefore, new drug-delivery approaches, based on nanomedicine strategies, are needed to enhance its therapeutic potential in favor of a dose-reduction of cisplatin. Polyunsaturated fatty acids and their metabolism-derived intermediates, as well as lipid peroxidation end-products, are used as adjuvants to improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Read More

Activation of the P38-MSK1 axis in colorectal adenocarcinoma determines a good prognostic outcome.

Pol J Pathol 2021 ;72(1):39-47

Assistant professor of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Minia University, Minia, Egypt.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer worldwide and is associated with a high level of mortality and morbidity. In this study we evaluate expression of p-p38 and p-MSK1 in CRC and determine whether there is an association between expression of these markers and any clinicopathologic parameters that could be of prognostic value. Expression of p-p38, p-MSK1 and ki-67 were examined by immunohistochemistry in 135 archival CRC cases and the findings were correlated with the patient clinicopathological data. Read More

Chromatin state dynamics confers specific therapeutic strategies in enhancer subtypes of colorectal cancer.

Gut 2021 May 31. Epub 2021 May 31.

Department of Genomic Medicine, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA

Objective: Enhancer aberrations are beginning to emerge as a key epigenetic feature of colorectal cancers (CRC), however, a comprehensive knowledge of chromatin state patterns in tumour progression, heterogeneity of these patterns and imparted therapeutic opportunities remain poorly described.

Design: We performed comprehensive epigenomic characterisation by mapping 222 chromatin profiles from 69 samples (33 colorectal adenocarcinomas, 4 adenomas, 21 matched normal tissues and 11 colon cancer cell lines) for six histone modification marks: H3K4me3 for Pol II-bound and CpG-rich promoters, H3K4me1 for poised enhancers, H3K27ac for enhancers and transcriptionally active promoters, H3K79me2 for transcribed regions, H3K27me3 for polycomb repressed regions and H3K9me3 for heterochromatin.

Results: We demonstrate that H3K27ac-marked active enhancer state could distinguish between different stages of CRC progression. Read More
