Bladder cancer selective chemotherapy with potent NQO1 substrate co-loaded prodrug nanoparticles.

J Control Release 2022 May 23. Epub 2022 May 23.

The State Key Laboratory of Organic-inorganic Composites, Beijing Laboratory of Biomedical Materials, Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Soft Matter Science and Engineering, College of Life Science and Technology, Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Currently, clinical intravesical instillation chemotherapy has been greatly compromised by the toxicological and physiological factors. New formulations that can specifically and efficiently kill bladder cancer cells are in urgent need to overcome the low residence efficiency and dose limiting toxicity of current ones. The combination of mucoadhesive nanocarriers and cancer cell selective prodrugs can to great extent address these limitations. Read More

Surfactant-Free Green Synthesis of [email protected] Nanorods for NIR PDT-Elicited CDT in Bladder Cancer Therapy.

ACS Appl Bio Mater 2022 May 26. Epub 2022 May 26.

Department of Applied Chemistry, National Pingtung University, Pingtung 90003, Taiwan.

The facile and straightforward fabrication of NIR-responsive theranostic materials with high biocompatibility is still an unmet need for nanomedicine applications. Here, we used a natural photosensitizer, iron chlorophyll (Chl/Fe), for the J-aggregate template-assisted synthesis of [email protected]/Fe nanorods with high stability. The assembly of a high amount of Chl/Fe J-aggregate onto the Au surface enabled red-NIR fluorescence for monitoring and tracking residential tumor lesions. Read More

Inhibitory role of proguanil on the growth of bladder cancer via enhancing EGFR degradation and inhibiting its downstream signaling pathway to induce autophagy.

Cell Death Dis 2022 May 25;13(5):499. Epub 2022 May 25.

Key Laboratory of Study and Discovery of Small Targeted Molecules of Hunan Province, Department of Pharmacy, School of Medicine, Hunan Normal University, Changsha, Hunan, China.

A major reason for the high mortality of patients with bladder cancer (BC) is that chemotherapy and surgery are only effective for very limited patients. Thus, developing novel treatment options becomes an urgent need for improving clinical outcomes and the quality of life for BC patients. Here, we demonstrated that proguanil significantly inhibited the growth of BC in vitro and in vivo. Read More

ACS Sens 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

School of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, Interdisciplinary Research Center of Smart Sensors, Xidian University, Xi'an 710126, China.

Globally, bladder cancer (BLC) is one of the most common cancers and has a high recurrence and mortality rate. Current clinical diagnostic approaches are either invasive or inaccurate. Here, we report on a cost-efficient, artificially intelligent chemiresistive sensor array made of polyaniline (PANI) derivatives that can noninvasively diagnose BLC at an early stage and maintain postoperative surveillance through ″smelling″ clinical urine samples at room temperature.

Uroplakin II as a single marker for luminal versus basal molecular subtypes in muscle invasive urothelial carcinoma.

Virchows Arch 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

Department of Pathology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease classified into two broad molecular subtype categories, basal and luminal, with critical treatment and prognostic implications. Recent studies have shown the utility of immunohistochemistry in predicting bladder cancer molecular subtypes, with a two-marker approach using GATA3 and CK5/6 showing over 80% reliability. In the current study, we calculated the accuracy of uroplakin II (UPII), a marker of urothelial differentiation, with different scores (0: <1%, 1+: 1-10%, 2+: 10-50%, 3+: >50%) to predict RNA-based luminal versus basal subtypes in a cohort of muscle-invasive bladder cancer-received neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by radical cystectomy.

Augmenting THerapeutic Effectiveness Through Novel Analytics (ATHENA) - A Public and Private Partnership Project Funded by the Flemish Government (VLAIO).

Stud Health Technol Inform 2022 May;294:829-833

Janssen BeNeLux, Belgium.

The complexity and heterogeneity of cancers leads to variable responses of patients to treatments and interventions. Developing models that accurately predict patient's care pathways using prognostic and predictive biomarkers is increasingly important in both clinical practice and scientific research. The main objective of the ATHENA project is to: (1) accelerate data driven precision medicine for two use cases - bladder cancer and multiple myeloma, (2) apply distributed and privacy-preserving analytical methods/ algorithms to stratify patients (decision support), (3) help healthcare professionals deliver earlier and better targeted treatments, and (4) explore care pathway automations and improve outcomes for each patient.

Robotic nephroureterectomy in the management of upper tract urothelial cancer: inching toward standard of care?

Int Urol Nephrol 2022 May 24. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Urology, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC, 27157, USA.

Upper-tract urothelial carcinoma is a relatively rare malignancy. Current guidelines strongly recommend radical nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision and template-based lymph node dissection for all high-risk upper-tract urothelial carcinomas. Although the open approach is still considered the standard of care, evolution of minimally invasive approaches especially the robotic-assisted approach, has been found to be oncologically equivalent.

Long Noncoding RNA H19 Derived from M2 Tumor-Associated Macrophages Promotes Bladder Cell Autophagy via Stabilizing ULK1.

J Oncol 2022 14;2022:3465459. Epub 2022 May 14.

Department of Oncology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Bengbu Medical College, Bengbu, Anhui 233004, China.

Purpose: M2-like tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are crucial component of immune infiltration in tumor microenvironment (TME), and exosomes derived from TAMs contributed to the regulation of tumor progression through cellular communication. However, in bladder cancer, the role of exosomal components still remains largely unknown. In the current study, we investigated the role of exosomes derived from M2-like TAMs in the regulation of autophagy in bladder cancer (BC) cells. Read More
