Mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine carcinoma of gallbladder: case report.

World J Surg Oncol 2019 Mar 22;17(1):55. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University, 301 00, Pilsen, Czech Republic.

Background: Mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine tumors (MINEN) of the gallbladder are extremely rare; indeed, the English expert literature reports a mere handful of case reports and case series on this topic. According to the WHO classification of 2010, MINEN are considered to be tumors consisting of two major components, neuroendocrine and non-neuroendocrine, each of which hosts at least 30% of the total cellular population. To date, the etiology and pathogenesis of MINEN have not been precisely determined and the non-specific symptoms generally result in late diagnosis (mainly in the terminal stages of the condition) and contribute to the generally poor prognosis.

IL-33 overexpression in gallbladder cancers associated with pancreatobiliary maljunction.

Histopathology 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Department of Diagnostic Pathology, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Aims: To investigate whether genetic or inflammatory pro-oncogenic factors are relevant to the increased risk of gallbladder cancers in patients with pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM).

Methods: Mutations in KRAS exon 2 were examined by a highly sensitive, droplet digital PCR platform using surgically resected specimens of PBM-associated (n=31) and non-associated gallbladder cancers (n=49). The tissue expression of IL-6 and IL-33, which are suspected to promote biliary carcinogenesis, was analyzed by quantitative real-time PCR and in situ hybridization. Read More

Tumor response to irinotecan is associated with CYP3A5 expression in colorectal cancer.

Oncol Lett 2019 Apr 14;17(4):3890-3898. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Gastroenterology, University Hospital Heidelberg, D-69120 Heidelberg, Germany.

Recently, a tumor-autonomous cytochrome P450 (CYP)-3A5-mediated resistance to cancer therapy has been demonstrated in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. Expression of CYP3A5, which is involved in the degradation of irinotecan, has also been reported in colorectal cancer (CRC). The aim of the present study was to analyze CYP3A5 expression in the normal colon, colon adenoma, CRC and normal tissues, as well as to examine whether CYP3A5 expression in CRC has an impact on tumor response to irinotecan treatment.

Prospective observational study on cholelithiasis in patients with carcinoma gall bladder in a tertiary referral hospital of Eastern India.

J Cancer Res Ther 2019 Jan-Mar;15(1):153-156

Department of Surgery, IPGMER/SSKM Hospital; Department of Surgical Oncology, Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Context: Gallbladder carcinoma (GBCA) is the fifth most common types of gastrointestinal malignancy and is the most common malignancy of the biliary tract. Cholelithiasis, gallbladder polyps, porcelain gall, and choledochal cysts are common known associations with GBCA. Because of the better understanding of the etiopathogenesis, the traditional nihilistic attitude toward the prognosis has, over the years, given way to greater interest and hope for treating the disease.

Improvement in the diagnosis and treatment of T2 gallbladder carcinoma is pivotal to improvement in the overall prognosis for this disease.

Biosci Trends 2019 ;13(1):1-9

Department of Oncology, XinHua Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Since the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) subdivided the T2 stage of gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) into T2a and T2b, the diagnosis and treatment of those stages have been a subject of heated discussion and controversy. T2 is a stage of GBC that might be treatable. Based on the extent of lymph node metastasis and distant metastasis, T2 GBC can be classified into various pathological stages such as IIA, IIB, IIIB, and IVB, leading to controversy in clinical settings.

Bile acid homeostasis in a Cyp7a1 & Cyp27a1 double knockout mouse model.

Hepatology 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, School of Pharmacy, EOHSI, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ, 08854, United States.

Bile acids (BAs) are diverse molecules that are synthesized from cholesterol in the liver. The synthesis of BAs has traditionally been shown to occur via two pathways. Cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) performs the initial and rate-limiting step in the classical pathway and sterol 27-hydroxylase (CYP27A1) initiates the hydroxylation of cholesterol in the alternative pathway.
