Computed tomography (CT) features of pelvic rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in children.

Curr Med Imaging 2021 Aug 26. Epub 2021 Aug 26.

Department of Radiology, Children's Hospital, Chongqing Medical University and Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Child Development and Disorders, Chongqing International Science and Technology Cooperation Center for Child Development and Disorders and Key Laboratory of Pediatrics in Chongqing, Chongqing 400014. China.

Background: Currently, there are few literature reports on the CT features of pelvic rhabdomyosarcoma, most of which exist in the form of case reports, and some literature reports have suggested that CT features of pelvic rhabdomyosarcoma lack specificity. This study was designed to investigate the CT features of pelvic RMS in children to provide imaging evidence for clinical diagnosis.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed radiographic and clinical data of all paediatric patients with pelvic neoplastic lesions pathologically proven to be malignant in our hospitals from January 2012 through March 2021. Read More

Enzyme-responsive micellar JQ1 induces enhanced BET protein inhibition and immunotherapy of malignant tumors.

Biomater Sci 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Biomedical Polymers Laboratory, College of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, and State Key Laboratory of Radiation Medicine and Protection, Soochow University, Suzhou 215123, China.

Bromodomain and extra-terminal (BET) proteins are attractive targets for treating various malignancies including melanoma. The inhibition of BET bromodomains, with JQ1, is found to downregulate the expression of both c-MYC oncoprotein and programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), which play a crucial role in tumor growth and the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment, respectively. The BET bromodomain inhibitors like JQ1 though exhibiting high selectivity and affinity show usually low bioavailability and efficacy due to fast clearance and inferior uptake by tumor cells.

Matter of TIME: the tumor-immune microenvironment of mesothelioma and implications for checkpoint blockade efficacy.

J Immunother Cancer 2021 Sep;9(9)

Cancer Research Centre, University of Leicester College of Life Sciences, Leicester, UK

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an incurable cancer with a dismal prognosis and few effective treatment options. Nonetheless, recent positive phase III trial results for immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) in MPM herald a new dawn in the fight to advance effective treatments for this cancer. Tumor mutation burden (TMB) has been widely reported to predict ICB in other cancers, but MPM is considered a low-TMB tumor. Read More

Defining Gene Functions in Tumorigenesis by Ex vivo Ablation of Floxed Alleles in Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor Cells.

J Vis Exp 2021 Aug 25(174). Epub 2021 Aug 25.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina;

The development of new drugs that precisely target key proteins in human cancers is fundamentally altering cancer therapeutics. However, before these drugs can be used, their target proteins must be validated as therapeutic targets in specific cancer types. This validation is often performed by knocking out the gene encoding the candidate therapeutic target in a genetically engineered mouse (GEM) model of cancer and determining what effect this has on tumor growth.

Front Chem 2021 25;9:735668. Epub 2021 Aug 25.

Key Laboratory of Biopharmaceuticals, Engineering Laboratory of Polysaccharide Drugs, Shandong Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Jinan, China.

Hematologic malignancies are a group of malignant diseases of the hematologic system that seriously endanger human health, mainly involving bone marrow, blood and lymphatic tissues. However, among the available treatments for malignant hematologic diseases, low detection rates and high recurrence rates are major problems in the treatment process. The quantitative detection of hematologic malignancies-related biomarkers is the key to refine the pathological typing of the disease to implement targeted therapy and thus improve the prognosis.

5'-tiRNA-Cys-GCA regulates VSMC proliferation and phenotypic transition by targeting STAT4 in aortic dissection.

Mol Ther Nucleic Acids 2021 Dec 29;26:295-306. Epub 2021 Jul 29.

Department of Cardiac Ultrasound, The Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University, No. 16 Jiangsu Road, Qingdao 266000, People's Republic of China.

Accumulating evidence shows that tRNA-derived fragments are a novel class of functional small non-coding RNA; however, their roles in aortic dissection (AD) are still unknown. In this study, we found that 5'-tiRNA-Cys-GCA was significantly downregulated in human and mouse models of aortic dissection. The abnormal proliferation, migration, and phenotypic transition of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) played a crucial role in the initiation and progression of aortic dissection, with 5'-tiRNA-Cys-GCA as a potential phenotypic switching regulator, because its overexpression inhibited the proliferation and migration of VSMCs and increased the expression of contractile markers.

Construction of a Novel Immune-Related lncRNA Pair Signature with Prognostic Significance for Kidney Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma.

Dis Markers 2021 1;2021:8800358. Epub 2021 Sep 1.

Department and Institute of Urology, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, No. 1095 Jiefang Avenue, 430030 Wuhan, China.

Background: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most common aggressive malignant tumors in the urinary system, among which the clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common subtype. The immune-related long noncoding ribonucleic acids (irlncRNAs) which are abundant in immune cells and immune microenvironment (IME) have potential significance in evaluating the prognosis and effects of immunotherapy. The signature based on irlncRNA pairs and independent of the exact expression level seems to have a latent predictive significance for the prognosis of patients with malignant tumors but has not been applied in ccRCC yet.

Department of Urology, Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Henan Cancer Hospital, Zhengzhou, China.

: Bladder cancer (BLCA) ranks 10th in incidence among malignant tumors and 6th in incidence among malignant tumors in males. With the application of immune therapy, the overall survival (OS) rate of BLCA patients has greatly improved, but the 5-year survival rate of BLCA patients is still low. Furthermore, not every BLCA patient benefits from immunotherapy, and there are a limited number of biomarkers for predicting the immunotherapy response. Read More

Follow-up of small & diminutive colonic polyps - how to balance the risks in the COVID-19 era.

Colorectal Dis 2021 Sep 12. Epub 2021 Sep 12.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a reduced colonoscopy capacity in the UK resulting in increased waiting times for investigation. To increase diagnostic capacity and reduce the risk of diagnostic delay, CT colonography (CTC) and colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) are increasingly being relied upon. Endoscopic assessment and treatment will be required for those patients with large colonic polyps or malignant tumours detected by CTC or CCE, provided they are fit enough to undergo further investigation.
