Immuno-PET Imaging and Pharmacokinetics of an Anti-CEA scFv-based Trimerbody and Its Monomeric Counterpart in Human Gastric Carcinoma-Bearing Mice.

Mol Pharm 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Radiochemistry and Nuclear Imaging Group , CIC biomaGUNE , 20014 San Sebastián , Guipúzcoa , Spain.

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are currently used as therapeutic agents in different types of cancer. However, mAbs and antibody fragments developed so far show suboptimal properties in terms of circulation time and tumor penetration/retention. Here, we report the radiolabeling, pharmacokinetic evaluation, and determination of tumor targeting capacity of the previously validated anti-CEA MFE23-scFv-based N-terminal trimerbody (MFE23-trimerbody), and the results are compared to those obtained for the monomeric MFE23-scFv.

Narrow-Band Imaging: Clinical Application in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

GE Port J Gastroenterol 2018 Dec 27;26(1):40-53. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Department of Gastroenterology, Instituto Português de Oncologia do Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Narrow-band imaging is an advanced imaging system that applies optic digital methods to enhance endoscopic images and improves visualization of the mucosal surface architecture and microvascular pattern. Narrow-band imaging use has been suggested to be an important adjunctive tool to white-light endoscopy to improve the detection of lesions in the digestive tract. Importantly, it also allows the distinction between benign and malignant lesions, targeting biopsies, prediction of the risk of invasive cancer, delimitation of resection margins, and identification of residual neoplasia in a scar.

Cholecystokinin-2 Receptor Targeting with Novel C-terminally Stabilized HYNIC-Minigastrin Analogs Radiolabeled with Technetium-99m.

Pharmaceuticals (Basel) 2019 Jan 15;12(1). Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Medical University of Innsbruck, Anichstrasse 35, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

The high overexpression of cholecystokinin-2 receptors (CCK2R) in tumors, such as medullary thyroid carcinoma, allows for highly specific diagnostic and therapeutic targeting with radiolabeled peptide probes derived from natural ligands for the receptor. Based on the ideal imaging characteristics, high availability and low cost of technetium-99m (Tc)-labeled radiopharmaceuticals we have developed two hydrazinonicotinic acid (HYNIC) conjugated minigastrin analogs allowing labeling at high specific activity. The CCK2R targeting peptide conjugates show specific amino acid substitutions in the C-terminal receptor-specific sequence with the aim to increase stability and tumor targeting. Read More

SMARCB1- and vimentin-positive esophageal carcinoma with undifferentiated components, rhabdoid features, and a good prognosis: a case report.

Surg Case Rep 2019 Jan 16;5(1). Epub 2019 Jan 16.

1st Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Fukui, 23-3 Matsuokashimoaizuki, Yoshida-gun, Eiheiji-cho, Fukui, 910-1193, Japan.

Background: Undifferentiated carcinoma of the esophagus with rhabdoid features is a very rare histologic finding that is occasionally associated with the loss of SWI/SNF-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member 1 (SMARCB1); however, until now, few survey reports of this type of tumor have been published. In this study, we describe a case of esophageal carcinoma with undifferentiated components and rhabdoid features that was exclusively positive for vimentin and SMARCB1 in a patient with prolonged survival.

Endoscopic and clinicopathological features of intramucosal, histologically mixed-type, low-grade, well-differentiated gastric tubular adenocarcinoma with the potential for late-onset lymph node metastasis.

BMC Gastroenterol 2018 Dec 27;18(1):189. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Pathology, Niigata Cancer Center Hospital, 2-15-3 Kawagishi-cho, Chuo-ku, Niigata, 951-8566, Japan.

Background: Intramucosal, histologically mixed-type, low-grade (LG), well-differentiated gastric tubular adenocarcinomas (tub1s; LG-tub1s) have larger mean diameters and exhibit a higher frequency of the gastric mucin phenotype (G-phenotype) than pure LG-tub1s. In proportion to their increases in diameter, G-phenotype differentiated-type early gastric cancer (EGC) tumours reportedly grow to eventually contain (an) undifferentiated-type component(s) and LG-tub1s, which are included in differentiated-type EGCs, reportedly exhibit changes in their glandular architectural and cytological atypia grades from LG to high-grade (HG) and can grow to contain a moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma (tub2) component and undifferentiated components. Because they generally show a higher frequency of malignancy relative to tumours with a higher atypia grade and lower differentiation degree, it is suggested that, among mixed-type LG-tub1s, G-phenotype LG-tub1s containing an HG-tub2 component (LG-tub1s > HG-tub2) with undifferentiated components might lead to late-onset metastasis to lymph nodes even after a successful endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).

[The acid pocket - a novel target for the treatment of gastro-esophageal reflux disease].

Z Gastroenterol 2018 Oct 10;56(10):1276-1282. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Bauchzentrum, Abteilung für Gastroenterologie, St. Claraspital, Basel, Schweiz.

Increased acid reflux after meals is a key feature of gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and is the most important cause for patient symptoms, particularly heartburn and acid regurgitation. Chronic acid exposure also predisposes to associated pathologies including reflux esophagitis, esophageal stricture, Barrett's esophagus, and Barrett's carcinoma (esophageal adenocarcinoma). The severity of esophageal symptoms and mucosal damage is related to two key factors, (i) the acidity of the refluxate, which depends primarily on the gastric secretory output and its distribution within the stomach, and (ii) the frequency and duration of reflux events which depends on the efficacy of the reflux barrier at the gastro-esophageal junction and the esophageal clearance function.

Spatial Distribution of Endogenous Tissue Protease Activity in Gastric Carcinoma Mapped by MALDI Mass Spectrometry Imaging.

Mol Cell Proteomics 2019 Jan 7;18(1):151-161. Epub 2018 Oct 7.

From the ‡Center for Mass Spectrometry and Optical Spectroscopy (CeMOS), Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, Paul-Wittsack Str. 10, 68163 Mannheim, Germany;

Aberrant protease activity has been implicated in the etiology of various prevalent diseases including neurodegeneration and cancer, in particular metastasis. Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) has recently been established as a key technology for bioanalysis of multiple biomolecular classes such as proteins, lipids, and glycans. However, it has not yet been systematically explored for investigation of a tissue's endogenous protease activity. Read More

Hemolytic Anemia and Gastric Carcinoid in a Russian Seafarer: Highlighting the Role of Diagnostic Technologies in Modern Clinical Practice.

Yale J Biol Med 2018 09 21;91(3):243-246. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Section of General Internal Medicine, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Vitamin B-12 deficiency, most commonly due to pernicious anemia, can cause intramedullary hemolysis. The pathogenesis is thought to be due to increased membrane rigidity and reduced red blood cell elasticity, which predisposes the patient to hemolysis and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia. In this article, we discuss a Russian engineer who worked aboard a petroleum tanker that presented from his ship with profound B-12 deficiency, microangiopathic anemia, elevated lactate dehydrogenase levels, low haptoglobin, and reticulocyte count in the setting of normal renal and neurologic function.

An integrated automated multispectral imaging technique that simultaneously detects and quantitates viral RNA and immune cell protein markers in fixed sections from Epstein-Barr virus-related tumours.

Ann Diagn Pathol 2018 Dec 11;37:12-19. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Anatomical Pathology, Division of Pathology, Singapore General Hospital, 20 College Road, Academia, Diagnostics Tower, 169856, Singapore. Electronic address:

Background/aim: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is an oncovirus that is commonly associated with the development of lymphomas and epithelial carcinomas. In the era of immunotherapy, histological evaluation of EBV-related cancers is currently a multi-sample, multi-technique process requiring separate time-consuming detection of EBV-encoded small RNAs by in situ hybridisation (ISH), and parallel labelling of sections for cancer-associated protein markers.

Methods: Using EBV-associated tumours as proof-of-concept for feasibility, here we developed an approach that allows simultaneous detection of EBV RNAs and multiple protein markers such as PD-L1, EBV-LMP, CD8, CD4, CD20, CD30 and CD15on a single tissue section based on our recently reported automated staining protocol.

Gastrointestinal Bleed from Erosive Gastritis and Duodenitis: A Sentinel Event of Invasive Lobular Carcinoma of the Breast and a Diagnostic Dilemma.

Cureus 2018 Jun 7;10(6):e2757. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

Hematology-Oncology, University of Nevada Reno, School of Medicine, Reno, USA.

Metastasis from breast cancer to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is uncommon, and such events presenting as GI bleeding are exceedingly rare. In some individuals, the absence of classical findings of primary breast cancer coupled with the non-specific nature of GI symptoms may make early detection and diagnosis challenging. Our patient is a 75-year-old female who presented with symptomatic anemia manifesting as progressive dizziness, weakness, and early satiety that developed eight days after right knee arthroplasty.
