The state of therapy modalities in clinic for biliary tract cancer.

Front Biosci (Landmark Ed) 2022 Jun;27(6):185

Hepatic Surgery Centre, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, 430030 Wuhan, Hubei, China.

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) include intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA), perihilar and distal cholangiocarcinoma (pCCA and dCCA), and gallbladder carcinoma based on the epithelial site of origin. BTCs are highly aggressive tumors associated with poor prognosis due to widespread metastasis and high recurrence. Surgery is the typical curative-intent treatment, yet the cornerstone of cure depends on the anatomical site of the primary tumor, and only a minority of patients (approximately 30%) has an indication necessitating surgery.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jun 12;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 12.

Department of Oncology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark.

We present the F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) findings in a 57-year-old woman with post-menopausal bleeding diagnosed with hepatoid adenocarcinoma (HAC) with a primary tumour in the uterine corpus and a highly elevated level of serum-α-fetoprotein (S-AFP) at presentation. HAC is a variant of adenocarcinoma with hepatic differentiation representing a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that morphologically and immunphenotypically resemble hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) but are of extrahepatic origin. Microscopically, they are usually poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas proliferating in solid sheets or in a trabecular or cord-like arrangement. Read More

Biomedicines 2022 Jun 2;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Medical Oncology, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an aggressive malignancy accounting for 90% of primary liver malignancies.

Harnessing natural-product-inspired combinatorial chemistry and computation-guided synthesis to develop -glycan modulators as anticancer agents.

Chem Sci 2022 Jun 19;13(21):6233-6243. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Genomics Research Center, Academia Sinica 128, Section 2, Academia Road Taipei 11529 Taiwan

Modulation of -glycosylation using human Golgi α-mannosidase II (α-hGMII) inhibitors is a potential anticancer approach, but the clinical utility of current α-hGMII inhibitors is limited by their co-inhibition of human lysosomal α-mannosidase (α-hLM), resulting in abnormal storage of oligomannoses. We describe the synthesis and screening of a small library of novel bicyclic iminosugar-based scaffolds, prepared natural product-inspired combinatorial chemistry (NPICC), which resulted in the identification of a primary α-hGMII inhibitor with 13.5-fold selectivity over α-hLM.
