Amino acid coordination complex mediates cisplatin entrapment within PEGylated liposome: an implication in colorectal cancer therapy.

Int J Pharm 2022 Jun 21:121946. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Nanotechnology Research Center, Pharmaceutical Technology Institute, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran; Department of Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology, School of Pharmacy, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran. Electronic address:

Cis-Diaminedichloroplatinum (cisplatin, CDDP) remained among the most widely used anti-cancer agents; however, management of the dose-limiting side effects is still a great hurdle to its therapeutic potential. In the framework of this investigation, novel approach was developed for CDDP encasement within liposome based on the formation of a coordination bond between the platinum (II) atom and a carboxylic group in aspartic acid (AA) and glutamic acid (GA). We have also compared two methods of preparation based on equilibration and conventional lipid film hydration. Read More

Tumor-Activatable Nanoparticles Target Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor to Enhance Drug Delivery and Antitumor Efficacy.

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2022 Jun 24:e2201614. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Chemistry, The University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, 60637, USA.

The binding of plasma proteins to nanomedicines is widely considered detrimental to their delivery to tumors. Here, the design of OxPt/SN38 nanoparticle containing a hydrophilic oxaliplatin (OxPt) prodrug in a coordination polymer core and a hydrophobic cholesterol-conjugated SN38 prodrug on the lipid shell for active tumor targeting is reported. OxPt/SN38 hitchhikes on low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles, concentrates in tumors via LDL receptor-mediated endocytosis, and selectively releases SN38 and OxPt in acidic, esterase-rich, and reducing tumor microenvironments, leading to 6.

Metastases to the Thyroid Gland: What Can We Do?

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 19;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 19.

Department of Thyroid Surgery, The First Hospital of China Medical University, 155 Nanjing Bei Street, Shenyang 110001, China.

Metastases to the thyroid gland arise from other malignant tumors such as renal cell carcinoma, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and breast cancer. In clinical practice, the incidence is low, and the symptoms are not specific, so it is often missed and misdiagnosed. It is finally diagnosed via the comprehensive application of many diagnostic methods, such as ultrasound, fine-needle aspiration biopsy, and immunohistochemistry analysis. Read More

Localized Small Bowel Adenocarcinoma Management: Evidence Summary.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 11;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Department of Gastroenterology and Digestive Oncology, European Georges Pompidou Hospital, AP-HP Centre, 75015 Paris, France.

Small bowel cancers are rare diseases whose prognosis is poorer than that of colon cancers. Due to disease rarity, there is little data on small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) treatment, and most recommendations come from expert agreements or analogies to the management of colon cancer. Although relatively high rates of local recurrence are observed for duodenal malignancies, distant metastatic relapse remains common and requires adjuvant systemic therapy. Read More

Tumor-Suppressive Effect of Metformin via the Regulation of M2 Macrophages and Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells in the Tumor Microenvironment of Colorectal Cancer.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 10;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Institute of Gastroenterology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul 03722, Korea.

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and M2 macrophages in the tumor microenvironment contribute to tumor progression by inducing immune tolerance to tumor antigens and cancer cells. Metformin, one of the most common diabetes drugs, has shown anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects. However, the effects of metformin on inflammatory cells of the tumor microenvironment and its underlying mechanisms remain unclarified. Read More

Gene Silencing Is a CpG Island Methylator Phenotype-Associated Factor That Predisposes Colon Cancer Cells to Irinotecan and Olaparib.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 9;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, 431 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, Sydney, NSW 2037, Australia.

Chemotherapy is a mainstay of colorectal cancer treatment, and often involves a combination drug regime. CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP)-positive tumors are potentially more responsive to the topoisomerase-inhibitor irinotecan. The mechanistic basis of the increased sensitivity of CIMP cancers to irinotecan is poorly understood. Read More

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Grosse Steinstrasse 52, D-06108 Halle (Saale), Germany.

Metastasis-associated in colon cancer 1 (MACC1) is a marker for metastasis, tumor cell migration, and increased proliferation in colorectal cancer (CRC). Tumors with high MACC1 expression show a worse prognosis and higher invasion into neighboring structures. Yet, many facets of the pro-migratory effects are not fully understood. Read More

Atypical Cognitive Impairment and Recovery in Two Colorectal Cancer Patients.

Tomography 2022 Jun 9;8(3):1503-1508. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Department of Neurology, Jeonbuk National University Medical School and Hospital, 20 Geonji-ro, Deokjin-gu, Jeonju 54907, Korea.

Cognitive impairment in cancer patients can be caused by various factors; in approximately 30% of cancer patients, the symptoms appear before starting treatment. Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis (PLE) is a rare disease associated with an autoimmune response, and is characterized by memory loss, depression, and personality changes; it is one of the potential causes of cognitive dysfunction in cancer patients. Two patients were previously diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment and maintained clinical stability; after suffering a rapid change in personality and sudden cognitive decline, colorectal cancer was diagnosed within a few months.

Antiangiogenic Drug-Induced Proteinuria as a Prognostic Factor in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.

Curr Oncol 2022 May 31;29(6):3996-4011. Epub 2022 May 31.

Immunology Department, "Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 700115 Iasi, Romania.

Treatment with bevacizumab is known to cause adverse events such as proteinuria and hypertension, amongst others. However, while bevacizumab-induced hypertension has been linked to increased overall survival (OS), data on proteinuria are controversial. We performed a retrospective analysis to observe the influence of adverse events developed during treatment with bevacizumab and chemotherapy on the OS in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).

The emerging role of neutrophilic extracellular traps in intestinal disease.

Gut Pathog 2022 Jun 22;14(1):27. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

The First Clinical Medical College of Lanzhou University, Lanzhou, 730000, Gansu, People's Republic of China.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are extracellular reticular fibrillar structures composed of DNA, histones, granulins and cytoplasmic proteins that are delivered externally by neutrophils in response to stimulation with various types of microorganisms, cytokines and host molecules, etc. NET formation has been extensively demonstrated to trap, immobilize, inactivate and kill invading microorganisms and acts as a form of innate response against pathogenic invasion. However, NETs are a double-edged sword. Read More
