Immune checkpoint inhibitors in treatment of soft-tissue sarcoma: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Eur J Cancer 2021 Jun 6;152:165-182. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Department of Medical Oncology, Ghent University Hospital, Ghent, Belgium; Cancer Research Institute Ghent, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.

Background: Soft-tissue sarcomas (STSs) are rare malignancies, accounting for approximately 1% of adult cancer. Metastatic disease carries a poor prognosis, and various efforts have been made to improve the prognosis of advanced STS, to date with little success. Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPIs) have substantially improved prognosis for many cancer types. Read More

The Orphan Nuclear Receptor Gene NR0B2 Is a Favorite Prognosis Factor Modulated by Multiple Cellular Signal Pathways in Human Liver Cancers.

Front Oncol 2021 14;11:691199. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Urology, The University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS, United States.

Background: Liver cancer is a leading cause of cancer death worldwide, and novel prognostic factor is needed for early detection and therapeutic responsiveness monitoring. The orphan nuclear receptor NR0B2 was reported to suppress liver cancer development in a mouse model, and its expression levels were reduced in liver cancer tissues and cell lines due to hypermethylation within its promoter region. However, it is not clear if NR0B2 expression is associated with cancer survival or disease progression and how NR0B2 gene expression is regulated at the molecular level. Read More

Craniofacial Biology, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, United States

The non-taxane microtubule inhibitor, eribulin, is an approved therapeutic for metastatic breast cancer and liposarcoma. Eribulin was previously tested in unselected lung cancer patients and yielded a modest objective response rate of ~5-12 percent. Because lung cancers represent diverse histologies and driving oncogenic mutations, we postulated that eribulin may exhibit properties of a precision oncology agent with a previously undefined specificity for a molecularly distinct subset of lung cancers.

Anti-PD-1 Immunotherapy and Bee Venom for Relapsed and Refractory Liposarcoma: A Case Report.

Front Oncol 2021 29;11:668992. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Oncology, Hangzhou Red Cross Hospital, Hangzhou, China.

Cancer immunotherapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, elicit long-term clinical responses but many cancer patients do not respond. Intensive efforts are therefore underway to identify additional immune pathways that may be modulated to enhance the efficacy of existing immunotherapies. Bee venom strongly stimulates the immune system, and is used as a complementary therapy to treat cancer pain in patients with advanced tumors in China. Read More
