Anti-PD1 'SHR-1210' aberrantly targets pro-angiogenic receptors and this polyspecificity can be ablated by paratope refinement.

MAbs 2018 Dec 12:1-19. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

a UltraHuman Limited, Codebase , Edinburgh , UK.

Monoclonal anti-programmed cell death 1 (PD1) antibodies are successful cancer therapeutics, but it is not well understood why individual antibodies should have idiosyncratic side-effects. As the humanized antibody SHR-1210 causes capillary hemangioma in patients, a unique toxicity amongst anti-PD1 antibodies, we performed human receptor proteome screening to identify nonspecific interactions that might drive angiogenesis. This screen identified that SHR-1210 mediated aberrant, but highly selective, low affinity binding to human receptors such as vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2), frizzled class receptor 5 and UL16 binding protein 2 (ULBP2).

Effect of dosing regimen and microneedle pretreatment on in vitro skin retention of topically applied beta-blockers.

Biomed Microdevices 2018 Dec 6;20(4):100. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Pharmaceutical Science and Experimental Therapeutics, University of Iowa College of Pharmacy, 115 South Grand Avenue, Iowa City, IA, 52242, USA.

Topical beta-blocker formulations are commonly used to treat infantile hemangiomas (IHs); however, the skin concentrations and drug permeation through the skin have not been quantified. Microneedles (MNs) may increase local skin concentrations, which could further enhance lesion clearance and improve dosing regimens. The objective of this study was to quantify skin concentrations and drug permeation of two beta-blockers, propranolol and timolol, in vitro after application to intact skin and skin pretreated with solid MNs of two lengths.

Vasoformative Lesions in Mediastinal Mixed Germ Cell Tumors: an Interesting Account of Two Cases Spanning the Benign to Malignant Spectrum.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 18;9(4):624-628. Epub 2018 May 18.

1Department of Histopathology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Rajender Nagar, New Delhi, India.

Extragonadal germ cell tumors are most commonly encountered in the anterior mediastinum. The presence of sarcomatous malignancies in these tumors is a rare phenomenon that adversely impacts patient prognosis because of poor response to conventional cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Even more unusual is the presence of florid benign somatic proliferations that overshadow the germ cell component, often resulting in misdiagnosis and inappropriate management. Read More

Ophthalmology 2018 Dec 8. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY; Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY.

Purpose: GNAQ mutations have been identified in port wine stains (both syndromic and non-syndromic) and melanocytic ocular neoplasms. This study investigates the presence of GNAQ mutations in diffuse- (those associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS)) and solitary choroidal hemangiomas.

Participants: Tissue from 11 patients with the following diagnoses: port wine stain (n = 3), diffuse choroidal hemangioma (n = 1), solitary choroidal hemangioma (n = 6), choroidal nevus (n =1) METHODS: Ten specimens were interrogated with Memorial Sloan Kettering-Integrated Mutation Profiling of Actionable Cancer Targets (MSK-IMPACT), a hybridization capture-based next-generation sequencing assay for targeted deep sequencing of all exons and selected introns of 468 key cancer genes in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumors.

RhoB antibody alters retinal vascularization in models of murine retinopathy.

J Cell Biochem 2018 Dec 9. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.

Neovascularization in cancer or retinopathy is driven by pathological changes that foster abnormal sprouting of endothelial cells. Mouse genetic studies indicate that the stress-induced small GTPase RhoB is dispensable for normal physiology but required for pathogenic angiogenesis. In diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) or age-related wet macular degeneration (AMD), progressive pathologic anatomic changes and ischemia foster neovascularization are characterized by abnormal sprouting of endothelial cells.

Non-invasive imaging techniques for early diagnosis of radiation-induced squamous cell carcinoma of the lip.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2018 ;59(3):949-953

"Victor Babeş" National Institute for Research and Development in Pathology and Biomedical Sciences, Bucharest, Romania;

Ionizing radiation was used in the past for treatment of several benign cutaneous conditions, and particularly hemangiomas. Even though radiotherapy was generally effective, it significantly augmented the risk for malignancies, resulting in a consequent heavy decline of its use for benign conditions. However, radiation-induced neoplasia is still encountered in adult patients irradiated during childhood or adolescence. Read More

Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Department of Surgery, Seattle Children's Hospital and Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, Washington, United States.

Purpose Of Review: This chapter will summarize the most recent literature regarding the current state of medical treatment for vascular anomalies.

Recent Findings: Research into the biology of these anomalies has strengthened our understanding of each anomaly and has helped to pave the way for more tailored treatment options involving molecular and/or genetic targets.

Summary: While there is still a role for surgical intervention, medical therapies that target the etiology of vascular anomalies may represent an alternative or adjunctive approach in the management of these lesions. Read More

Hemangiomas of the tongue and the oral cavity in a myotonic dystrophy type 1 patient: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(48):e13448

Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico Centro Neurolesi "Bonino-Pulejo".

Rationale: Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by a cytosine, guanine, thymine (CTG) trinucleotide repeat expansion in the non-coding region of dystrophia myotonica protein kinase gene, causing a multisystem involvement. To date, few studies have been performed to evaluate skin features in DM1 patients, but none reported on the possible association between the disease and tongue hemangiomas.

Patients Concerns: We report a case of a 63-year-old woman affected by DM1 and presenting, at the intraoral examination, several swelling and buish lesions occurring on buccal and palatal mucosa, and in the anterior two-thirds and margins of the tongue. Read More

Repurposing propranolol as an antitumor agent in von Hippel-Lindau disease.

Authors:

J Neurosurg 2018 Oct 1:1-9. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

OBJECTIVEVon Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a tumor predisposition syndrome characterized by CNS hemangioblastomas (HBs) and clear cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) due to hypoxia-inducible factor activation (pseudohypoxia). Because of the lack of effective medical therapies for VHL, HBs and RCCs account for significant morbidity and mortality, ultimately necessitating numerous neurological and renal surgeries. Propranolol is an FDA-approved pan-beta adrenergic antagonist with antitumor effects against infantile hemangiomas (IHs) and possibly VHL HBs. Read More

β-adrenoceptors as drug targets in melanoma: novel preclinical evidence for a role of β3-adrenoceptors.

Br J Pharmacol 2018 Nov 24. Epub 2018 Nov 24.

Department of Biology, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Stress plays a role in tumorigenesis through catecholamines acting at β-adrenoceptors including β1-, β2- and β3-adrenoceptors and the use of β-adrenoceptor antagonists seems to counteract tumor growth and progression. Preclinical evidence and meta-analysis data demonstrate that melanoma shows a positive response to β-adrenoceptor blockers and in particular to propranolol acting mainly at β1- and β2-adrenoceptors. Although evidence suggesting that β3-adrenoceptors may play a role as a therapeutic target in infantile hemangiomas has been recently reviewed, a comprehensive analysis of the available data from preclinical studies supporting a possible role of β3-adrenoceptors in melanoma was not available.
