Rev Med Inst Mex Seguro Soc 2019 Jan 28;56(5):505-509. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, Hospital de Especialidades "Dr. Bernardo Sepúlveda Gutiérrez", Servicio de Anatomía Patológica. Ciudad de México, México

Background: 85% of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) originate in the gastrointestinal tract, which is why their primary hepatic location is very rare; NETs most frequently cause metastases to the liver; so when diagnosed, a hepatic NET is considered initially metastatic. Diagnosis of primary hepatic neuroendocrine tumors (PHNET) should be performed by excluding extrahepatic NETs and through histological confirmation. The objective of this article is to present a case of PHNET. Read More

MiRNA-3653 Is a Potential Tissue Biomarker for Increased Metastatic Risk in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours.

Endocr Pathol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Upper Gastrointestinal Surgical Unit, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs) are relatively uncommon, accounting for 1-2% of all pancreatic neoplasms. Tumour grade (based on the Ki67 proliferative index and mitotic rate) is associated with metastatic risk across large cohorts; however, predicting the behaviour of individual tumours can be difficult. Therefore, any tool which could further stratify metastatic risk may be clinically beneficial. Read More

Quantifying the genetic correlation between cancers can provide important insights into the mechanisms driving cancer etiology. Using genome-wide association study summary statistics across six cancer types based on a total of 296,215 cases and 301,319 controls of European ancestry, here we estimate the pair-wise genetic correlations between breast, colorectal, head/neck, lung, ovary and prostate cancer, and between cancers and 38 other diseases. We observed statistically significant genetic correlations between lung and head/neck cancer (r = 0. Read More

Memory T cells targeting oncogenic mutations detected in peripheral blood of epithelial cancer patients.

Nat Commun 2019 01 25;10(1):449. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Surgery Branch, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

T cells targeting shared oncogenic mutations can induce durable tumor regression in epithelial cancer patients. Such T cells can be detected in tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, but whether such cells can be detected in the peripheral blood of patients with the common metastatic epithelial cancer patients is unknown. Using a highly sensitive in vitro stimulation and cell enrichment of peripheral memory T cells from six metastatic cancer patients, we identified and isolated CD4, and CD8 memory T cells targeting the mutated KRAS and KRAS variants, respectively, in three patients.

BMC Gastroenterol 2019 Jan 25;19(1):17. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Emergency Department, The First Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University, Huangpu East Road No. 183, Huangpu District, Guangzhou, 510700, China.

Background: Capecitabine plus bevacizumab (CAP-B) maintenance treatment after 6 cycles of capecitabine, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab (CAPOXB) has demonstrated clinical activity and failure to compromise quality of life in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (MCC) in a previous phase 3 CAIRO3 study. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CAP-B versus CAP in maintenance treatment after 6-cycle CAPOXB induction therapy in Chinese postmenopausal women with untreated characterised KRAS exon 2 wild-type MCC.

Methods: During 2012-2016, prospectively maintained databases were reviewed to evaluate cohorts with untreated characterised KRAS exon 2 wild-type MCC and stable disease or better after 6-cycle CAPOXB induction treatment. Read More

Diagnostic performance of serum pepsinogen assay for the prediction of atrophic gastritis and gastric neoplasms: Protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(4):e14240

Department of Internal Medicine.

Background: Serum pepsinogen assay (sPGA) combining concentration of pepsinogen I (PG I), and the ratio of PG I/II is the noninvasive biomarker for predicting chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) and neoplasms reflecting mucosal secretory status. Although various cut-off values have been suggested, PG I ≤70 ng/mL and PG I/II ≤3 have been widely accepted. However, previous studies for diagnostic test accuracy presented only pooled outcomes, which cannot discriminate the diagnostic validity of sPGA with cut-off of PG I ≤70 ng/mL and PG I/II ≤3.

Three-field lymph node dissection improved the postoperative survival and accuracy of pathological staging of patients with esophageal cancer, and reduced the postoperative local recurrence rate of esophageal cancer patients. However, this surgical procedure enlarged the trauma, cansed more complications, prolonged postoperative hospital stays, and seriously impaired the postoperative adjuvant therapy. Therefore, selection of patients who are suitable for three-field lymph node dissection is extremely important. Read More

Esophageal cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in China. Lymph node metastasis is one of the most important prognostic factors and severely affect the long-term survival after surgical treatment. Therefore, systemic two-field lymph node dissection including thoracic and abdominal draining nodes of the esophagus during surgery is essential in order to improve the long-term survival for the patients with thoracic esophageal cancer, and it is also the basis for precise staging and postoperative adjuvant treatment regimen- making.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and it is characterized by genetic and epigenetic alterations, as well as by inflammatory cell infiltration among malignant and stromal cells. However, this dynamic infiltration can be influenced by the microenvironment to promote tumor proliferation, survival and metastasis or cancer inhibition. In particular, the cancer microenvironment metabolites can regulate the inflammatory cells to induce a chronic inflammatory response that can be a predisposing condition for CRC retention. Read More
