Differences in Fecal Gut Microbiota, Short-Chain Fatty Acids and Bile Acids Link Colorectal Cancer Risk to Dietary Changes Associated with Urbanization Among Zimbabweans.

Nutr Cancer 2019 Apr 22:1-12. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

b Division of Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition , University of Pittsburgh , Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania , USA.

The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) is gradually rising in sub-Saharan Africa. This may be due to dietary changes associated with urbanization, which may induce tumor-promoting gut microbiota composition and function. We compared fecal microbiota composition and activity in 10 rural and 10 urban Zimbabweans for evidence of a differential CRC risk. Read More

A Case-Cohort Study to Investigate the Excess of Liver Cancer Observed in Workers in Poultry Slaughtering & Processing Plants.

Nutr Cancer 2019 Apr 22:1-14. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

a University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences , Little Rock , Arkansas , USA.

This is a case-cohort study to examine whether the excess of liver cancer deaths observed in workers in poultry plants could be explained by oncogenic viruses and chemical carcinogenic exposures within the plants. A detailed telephone questionnaire was administered, and responses were analyzed by logistic regression. Odds ratios for several indicators of high exposure to oncogenic viruses or chemical carcinogens in poultry plants and related industries were elevated, but not statistically significant, except the odds ratio for direct contact with the blood of meat in kitchens, eating places, etc. Read More

The Effect of Resveratrol on Cellular Senescence in Normal and Cancer Cells: Focusing on Cancer and Age-Related Diseases.

Nutr Cancer 2019 Apr 7:1-6. Epub 2019 Apr 7.

c Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Nutrition and Food Technology , National Nutrition and Food Technology Research Institute, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences , Tehran , Iran.

Cellular senescence is generally defined as irreversible cell-cycle arrest and loss of replicative capacity in virtually all cell types which can have effects on tissues and possibly play a significant role in promoting age-related chronic diseases and cancers. Recently, use of natural bioactive substances such as resveratrol to modify the process of cellular senescence in tissue cells based on specific context has opened an interesting therapeutic perspective in aging and chronic diseases such as cancers. This natural polyphenol is currently being evaluated as a promising anticancer and anti-age-related disease agent. Read More

Few studies have explored the associations of thiamin, niacin and riboflavin with risk of cancer despite their role in potentially cancer-associated one-carbon metabolism. Using multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression models modified for the case-cohort design, we examined the associations of dietary intake of the above-mentioned B vitamins, as well as folate, and vitamins B6 and B12, with risk of the breast (n = 922), endometrial (n = 180), ovarian (n = 104) and colorectal (n = 266) cancers among age-stratified subcohorts of 3,185 women who were randomly selected from a cohort of 73,909 participants.

γ-Tocotrienol Suppression of the Warburg Effect Is Mediated by AMPK Activation in Human Breast Cancer Cells.

Nutr Cancer 2019 Apr 6:1-15. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

a College of Pharmacy , University of Louisiana at Monroe , Monroe , Louisiana , USA.

Cancer cell metabolism is characterized by aerobic glycolysis or the "Warburg effect". Enhanced Akt signaling is associated with activation of various downstream enzymes involved in the glycolytic process, whereas activation of 5'-AMP-activated kinase (AMPK) acts to terminate energy expending mechanisms and decrease glycolytic enzyme expression. Studies were conducted to determine if the anticancer effects of γ-tocotrienol, are mediated through a suppression in aerobic glycolysis. Read More

Nutr Cancer 2019 Apr 7:1-13. Epub 2019 Apr 7.

b Department of Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine, Faculty of Medicine , Tabriz University of Medical Sciences , Tabriz , Iran.

In this study, we explored whether co-nanoencapsulated Curcumin (Cur) and Chrysin (Chr), natural herbal compounds with antitumor activities, regulate miR-132 and miR-502c and their downstream targets, leading to the synergistic growth inhibition in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. For this purpose, Cur and Chr were co-encapsulated into PLGA-PEG nanoparticles (NPs) and characterized through DLS, FTIR and FE-SEM. MTT assay and cell cycle arrest analysis revealed that CurChr-loaded NPs had a considerable synergistic cytotoxicity against MDA-MB-231 cells with more cell accumulation in G2/M phase compared to the other groups.

a Cancer and Translational Research Lab, Dr D. Y. Patil Biotechnology & Bioinformatics Institute, Dr D.Y. Patil Vidyapeeth , Pune , India.

Insights in RNA biology have opened up a plethora of opportunities to explore the small regulatory RNAs from various natural and artificial sources. These small RNAs have been suggested to play a role too in tumor progression by either as oncogenic or tumor suppressor small RNAs. In this study, authors have attempted to evaluate the therapeutic potential of small RNAs fractionated from corn (Zea mays) upon growth and survival of HeLa. Read More
