Bayesian Framework to Augment Tumor Board Decision Making.

JCO Clin Cancer Inform 2021 May;5:508-517

Department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer & Research Institute, Tampa, FL.

Purpose: Ideally, specific treatment for a cancer patient is decided by a multidisciplinary tumor board, integrating prior clinical experience, published data, and patient-specific factors to develop a consensus on an optimal therapeutic strategy. However, many oncologists lack access to a tumor board, and many patients have incomplete data descriptions so that tumor boards must act on imprecise criteria. We propose these limitations to be addressed through a flexible but rigorous mathematical tool that can define the probability of success of given therapies and be made readily available to the oncology community.

Doxorubicin and PD-L1 siRNA co-delivery with stem cell membrane-coated polydopamine nanoparticles for the targeted chemoimmunotherapy of PCa bone metastases.

Nanoscale 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Scientific Research Center, China-Japan Union Hospital, Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) blockade has achieved great success in cancer immunotherapy. PD-L1 siRNA can restore the immune anti-tumor activity of T cells by downregulating the level of PD-L1 on tumor cells, but the efficiency of PD-1/PD-L1 monotherapy is relatively low. Doxorubicin (DOX) can induce tumor cell apoptosis, and then increase the release of tumor antigen. Read More
