Polycystic ovary syndrome and cardiovascular risk. Could trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) be a major player? A potential upgrade forward in the DOGMA theory.

Biomed Pharmacother 2021 Sep 15;143:112171. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

NGN Healthcare - New Generation Nutraceuticals s.r.l., Torrette Via Nazionale 207, 83013 Mercogliano, Avellino, Italy. Electronic address:

Several studies reported an increase in cardiovascular risk (CVR) in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), considered primarily as the result of the combination of all the clinical features that characterize the syndrome, including hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity chronic low-grade inflammation. Interestingly, in 2012 it has been proposed the so-called DOGMA theory, suggesting the pivotal role played by microbiota alteration in the development of PCOS. Subsequently, several authors evidenced the existence in PCOS women of a marked dysbiosis, which is related to the development of metabolic diseases and cardiovascular complications, mainly due to the production of bacteria-derived metabolites that interfere with various pathways.

Radiation-Free myeloablative allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia: A comparison of outcomes between patients with and without central nervous system involvement.

Leuk Res 2021 Sep 14;111:106703. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Pediatric Cell and Gene Therapy Research Center, Gene, Cell & Tissue Research Institute, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; Department of Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation, Children's Medical Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

For patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), total body irradiation (TBI) has been particularly advocated as a part of the conditioning regimen in case of extramedullary involvement in sanctuary sites such as the central nervous system (CNS), to ensure greater tissue penetration. In resource-limited countries lacking TBI facilities; however, ALL patients undergo radiation-free myeloablative conditioning, though its impacts on post-HSCT outcomes of the patients with pre-HSCT CNS involvement have not been analyzed. In this 14-year series of 278 adult (> 18 y) ALL patients undergoing TBI-free busulfan/cyclophosphamide conditioning allo-HSCT, we found that the long-term probabilities of overall survival, disease free survival, relapse and non-relapse mortality were not significantly different between CNS-involved and CNS-spared patients.

J Clin Oncol 2021 Sep 17:JCO2101332. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Zentrum für Tumorbiologie und Integrative Medizin, Klinikum Wilhelmshaven, Wilhelmshaven, Germany.

Purpose: The randomized PANAMA trial investigated the efficacy of panitumumab (Pmab) when added to maintenance therapy with fluorouracil and folinic acid (FU/FA) in patients with wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.

Methods: Following first-line induction therapy with six cycles of FU/FA and oxaliplatin plus Pmab, responding patients (stable disease or partial or complete remission) were randomly assigned (1:1, open-label) to maintenance treatment with either FU/FA plus Pmab or FU/FA alone. The primary objective was to demonstrate superiority of progression-free survival (PFS, time from random assignment until progression or death) in favor of FU/FA plus Pmab with a hazard ratio (HR) of 0.

Expression of astrocyte-elevated gene-1 indicates prognostic value of fluoropyrimidine-based adjuvant chemotherapy in resectable stage III colorectal cancer.

Pathol Int 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin Branch, Yunlin, Taiwan.

It is unclear which prognostic factor such as pathological features and gene mutation are majorly relevant for stage III disease and whether they aid in determining patients who will be benefit from postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. The expression of astrocyte-elevated gene-1 (AEG-1), thymidylate synthase (TS), excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1), epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) was examined to investigate their role in adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with resectable stage III colorectal cancer (CRC). A significant positive correlation was observed between AEG-1, TS, ERCC1, EGFR, and VEGF gene expression levels in CRC cell lines, and low AEG-1 and TS expression were highly sensitive to 5-fluorouracil treatment.

A Prospective Phase II Study of Safety and Efficacy of Sorafenib Followed by Y Glass Microspheres for Patients with Advanced or Metastatic Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

J Hepatocell Carcinoma 2021 9;8:1129-1145. Epub 2021 Sep 9.

Department of Imaging Physics, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Purpose: The most common cause of death in advanced/metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is liver failure due to tumor progression. While retrospective studies and meta-analyses of systemic therapy combined with liver-directed therapy have been performed, prospective studies of safety/efficacy of antiangiogenesis followed by intra-arterial therapies are lacking. We tested our hypothesis that sorafenib followed by yttrium 90 glass microspheres (Y GMs) is safe and that survival outcomes may improve by controlling hepatic tumors. Read More

DNA methylation of the glucocorticoid receptor gene predicts substance use in adolescence: longitudinal data from over 1000 young individuals.

Transl Psychiatry 2021 Sep 15;11(1):477. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Global Public Health, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Early life stress has been linked to increased methylation of the Nuclear Receptor Subfamily 3 Group C Member 1 (NR3C1) gene, which codes for the glucocorticoid receptor. Moreover, early life stress has been associated with substance use initiation at a younger age, a risk factor for developing substance use disorders. However, no studies to date have investigated whether NR3C1 methylation can predict substance use in young individuals. Read More

Portal Vein Tumor Thrombosis and Hepatocellular Carcinoma - The Changing Tides.

J Hepatocell Carcinoma 2021 7;8:1089-1115. Epub 2021 Sep 7.

Department of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, The Center for Integrated Oncology and Precision Medicine, Affiliated Hangzhou First People's Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, 310006, People's Republic of China.

Portal vein involvement is considered one of the most fearful complications of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) is associated with aggressive tumor biology (high grade), high tumor burden (number and size of lesions), high levels of serum markers (AFP), poor liver function (deranged LFT), and poor performance status of patients. The Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer staging system places HCC patients with PVTT in advanced stage (BCLC Stage-C). Read More
