Dual activation of Hedgehog and Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway caused by downregulation of SUFU targeted by miRNA-150 in human gastric cancer.

Aging (Albany NY) 2021 Apr 12;13. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Guangdong Key Laboratory for Genome Stability and Disease Prevention, Department of Pathology, Shenzhen University School of Medicine, Shenzhen 518060, Guangdong, P.R. China.

Mounting evidence has shown that miRNA-150 expression is upregulated in gastric cancer (GC) and is associated with gastric carcinogenesis, but the underlying oncogenic mechanism remains elusive. Here, we discovered that miRNA-150 targets the tumor suppressor SUFU to promote cell proliferation, migration, and the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) via the dual activation of Hedgehog (Hh) and Wnt signaling. MiRNA-150 was highly expressed in GC tissues and cell lines, and the level of this miRNA was negatively related to that of SUFU. Read More

Investigating Intestinal Transporter Involvement in Rivaroxaban Disposition through Examination of Changes in Absorption.

Pharm Res 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, 94143-0912, USA.

Purpose: The involvement of the intestinally expressed xenobiotic transporters P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP) have been implicated in rivaroxaban disposition based on in vitro studies, similar to what had previously been proposed for apixaban. We recently showed that these efflux transporters were not clinically relevant for apixaban disposition and examine here their relevance for this second Factor Xa inhibitor.

Methods: Using recently published methodologies to discern metabolic- from transporter- mediated drug interactions, a critical evaluation was undertaken of 9 rivaroxaban studies reporting 12 DDIs, one study of food effects and one study of hepatic function. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Apr;100(15):e25494

Department of Radiology, Kagoshima University, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 8-35-1 Sakuragaoka, Kagoshima 890-8544.

Abstract: Recent breakthrough results from immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have paved the way to a new era of cancer immunotherapy, and have thus led to a paradigm shift of cancer treatment. In particular, inhibition of the antiprogrammed death-1 (PD-1)/programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) axis with ICI, including nivolumab and pembrolizumab, has been emerging as a novel treatment strategy for advanced gastric cancers. An accurate noninvasive assessment of the response to ICI is important for the management of patients with advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. Read More
