Loss of 'Epidermal Melanin Unit' Integrity in Human Skin During Melanoma-Genesis.

Front Oncol 2022 27;12:878336. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

The Charles Institute of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

Cutaneous melanoma can be a most challenging neoplasm of high lethality, in part due to its extreme heterogeneity and characteristic aggressive and invasive nature. Indeed, its moniker 'the great masquerader' reflects that not all melanomas are created equal in terms of their originating cellular contexts, but also that melanoma cells in the malignant tumor can adopt a wide range of different cell states and variable organotropism. In this review, we focus on the early phases of melanomagenesis by discussing how the originating pigment cell of the melanocyte lineage can be influenced to embark on a wide range of tumor fates with distinctive microanatomical pathways.

Efficacy Evaluation of Zoledronic Acid Combined with Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Lung Cancer Spinal Metastases on Computed Tomography Images on Intelligent Algorithms.

Comput Math Methods Med 2022 6;2022:6431852. Epub 2022 May 6.

Cancer Center, The First People's Hospital of Huaihua City, Huaihua, 418000 Hunan, China.

To analyze the effectiveness and safety of zoledronic acid combined with chemotherapy for lung cancer spinal metastases, 96 patients with lung cancer spinal metastases were averagely classified into the experimental group (gemcitabine, cisplatin, and zoledronic acid) and the control group (gemcitabine and cisplatin). An optimized noise variance estimation algorithm (OMAPB) was proposed based on the maximum a posteriori Bayesian method (MAPB), and the algorithm was applied to the patient's computed tomography (CT) scan. The results indicated that in terms of curative effect, the number of complete remission (CR), partial remission (PR) cases, effective rate, and clinical benefit rate of the test group was significantly higher than those of the control group.

Dexamethasone, a synthetic glucocorticoid, induces the activity of androgen receptor in human dermal papilla cells.

Skin Pharmacol Physiol 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Psychosocial stress stimulates the secretion of glucocorticoids (GCs), which are stress-related neurohormones. GCs are secreted from hair follicles and promote hair follicle regression by inducing cellular apoptosis. Moreover, the androgen receptor (AR) is abundant in the balding scalp and androgens suppress hair growth by binding to androgen receptor (AR) in androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Read More
