SMARCA4-deficient lung carcinoma is an aggressive tumor highly infiltrated by FOXP3+ cells and neutrophils.

Lung Cancer 2022 May 5;169:13-21. Epub 2022 May 5.

Centre de Recherche des Cordeliers, Sorbonne Université, INSERM, Université Paris Cité, Team Inflammation, Complement and Cancer, F-75006 Paris, France; Department of Pathology, Hôpitaux Universitaire Paris Centre, Cochin Hospital, Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris, Paris, France.

Introduction: SMARCA4/BRG1 loss of expression occurs in 5-10% of non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC). We investigated the pathological, molecular and immune environment characteristics of this deficiency among NSCLC, its impact on overall survival (OS) of resected patients and the sensitivity to anti-PD1 inhibitors in metastatic patients.

Materials And Methods: BRG1 expression was assessed by immunohistochemistry to identify SMARCA4-deficient NSCLC (SD-NSCLC) from the cancer tissue collection of Cochin Hospital (Paris, France). Read More

MiR-26b-5p in small extracellular vesicles derived from dying tumor cells after irradiation enhances the metastasis promoting microenvironment in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Cancer Lett 2022 May 17:215746. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Shandong Cancer Hospital and Institute, Shandong First Medical University and Shandong Academy of Medical Sciences, Jinan, 250117, China. Electronic address:

Radiation therapy is effective in achieving local control in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma; however, changes in the tumor microenvironment induced by radiation can also promote metastasis. Dying tumor cells play vital roles in promoting the survival of living tumor cells; however, few studies have investigated the effects of dying tumor cells on the tumor microenvironment. Since myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and macrophages constitute the pre-metastatic niche (PMN), we used a 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide induced in situ tumor model to investigate the effects of irradiation on MDSCs and macrophages in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC).

A graph-transformer for whole slide image classification.

IEEE Trans Med Imaging 2022 May 20;PP. Epub 2022 May 20.

Deep learning is a powerful tool for whole slide image (WSI) analysis. Typically, when performing supervised deep learning, a WSI is divided into small patches, trained and the outcomes are aggregated to estimate disease grade. However, patch-based methods introduce label noise during training by assuming that each patch is independent with the same label as the WSI and neglect overall WSI-level information that is significant in disease grading.

Genetic and immunohistochemical profiling of small cell and large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas of the breast.

Mod Pathol 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Pathology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the breast are exceedingly rare tumors, which are classified in the WHO system as small cell (SCNEC) and large cell (LCNEC) carcinoma based on indistinguishable features from their lung counterparts. In contrast to lung and enteropancreatic NEC, the genomics of breast NEC have not been well-characterized. In this study, we examined the clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and genetic features of 13 breast NEC (7 SCNEC, 4 LCNEC, 2 NEC with ambiguous small versus large cell morphology [ANEC]).

Deconvolution of malignant pleural effusions immune landscape unravels a novel macrophage signature associated with worse clinical outcome in lung adenocarcinoma patients.

J Immunother Cancer 2022 May;10(5)

Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, Sant' Andrea Hospital-Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Background: Immune checkpoint inhibitors are still unable to provide clinical benefit to the large majority of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. A deeper characterization of the tumor immune microenvironment (TIME) is expected to shed light on the mechanisms of cancer immune evasion and resistance to immunotherapy. Here, we exploited malignant pleural effusions (MPEs) from lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) patients as a model system to decipher TIME in metastatic NSCLC. Read More

WEE1 inhibition enhances the antitumor immune response to PD-L1 blockade by the concomitant activation of STING and STAT1 pathways in SCLC.

Cell Rep 2022 May;39(7):110814

Department of Medicine, Thoracic Oncology Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center, Office: Z1701, 417 E 68th St, New York, NY 10065, USA; Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10065, USA. Electronic address:

Small cell lung cancers (SCLCs) have high mutational burden but are relatively unresponsive to immune checkpoint blockade (ICB). Using SCLC models, we demonstrate that inhibition of WEE1, a G2/M checkpoint regulator induced by DNA damage, activates the STING-TBK1-IRF3 pathway, which increases type I interferons (IFN-α and IFN-β) and pro-inflammatory chemokines (CXCL10 and CCL5), facilitating an immune response via CD8 cytotoxic T cell infiltration. We further show that WEE1 inhibition concomitantly activates the STAT1 pathway, increasing IFN-γ and PD-L1 expression. Read More

Rev Med Suisse 2022 May;18(782):970-975

Service d'oncologie médicale, Département d'oncologie, Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois, 1011 Lausanne.

In recent years, new therapeutic strategies for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have been developed, stemming from a better understanding of oncogenic signaling pathways. The analysis of the alterations of genes involved in NSCLC oncogenesis is now an integral part of the diagnostic approach and opens the way to so-called "targeted" therapies. In this article, we will share the latest therapeutic advances by focusing on alterations of HER2, MET, EGFR and KRAS genes, for which new dedicated treatments have become available. Read More

Colony‑stimulating factor CSF2 mediates the phenotypic plasticity of small‑cell lung cancer by regulating the p‑STAT3/MYC pathway.

Oncol Rep 2022 Jul 18;48(1). Epub 2022 May 18.

Translational Cancer Research Lab, Jilin Cancer Hospital, Changchun, Jilin 130000, P.R. China.

Relapse and drug resistance are the main causes of mortality in patients with small‑cell lung cancer (SCLC). Intratumoral heterogeneity (ITH) is a key biological mechanism that leads to relapse and drug resistance. Phenotypic plasticity is an important factor that leads to ITH in SCLC, although its mechanisms and key regulatory factors remain to be elucidated. Read More
