Exosome-derived miR-let-7c promotes angiogenesis in multiple myeloma by polarizing M2 macrophages in the bone marrow microenvironment.

Leuk Res 2021 Mar 31;105:106566. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

School of Basic Medical Sciences, Zhengzhou University, No. 100 Ke Xue Avenue, Zhengzhou, 450000, China; Henan Key Laboratory of Tumor Pathology, Zhengzhou University, No. 40 Da Xue Avenue, Zhengzhou, 450000, China; Department of Pathology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, No. 1 Jian She Dong Avenue, Zhengzhou, 450000, China. Electronic address:

Angiogenesis is an integral part of the multiple myeloma (MM) microenvironment, and affects tumorigenesis, progression, invasion, and metastasis. Exosomes are essential for cell-cell communication and help in regulating the bone marrow microenvironment. Herein, we investigated macrophage polarization and angiogenesis in MM in vitro via exosome-derived miR-let-7c. Read More

In depth proteomic analysis of proteasome inhibitors bortezomib, carfilzomib and MG132 reveals that mortality factor 4-like 1 (MORF4L1) protein ubiquitylation is negatively impacted.

J Proteomics 2021 Apr 10:104197. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Proteome Exploration Laboratory, Beckman Institute, California Institute of Technology, 1200 E. California Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91125, USA. Electronic address:

Proteasome inhibitors are an important class of chemotherapeutic drugs. In this study, we performed a large-scale ubiquitylome analysis of the three proteasome inhibitors MG132, bortezomib and carfilzomib. Although carfilzomib is currently being used for the treatment of multiple myeloma, it has not yet been subjected to a global ubiquitylome analysis. Read More

Clinical outcomes and complications of surgical interventions for multiple myeloma lesions in the extremities and pelvis: A retrospective clinical study.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2021 Mar;55(2):159-165

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Marmara University, School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Objective: This study aimed to assess the pain and functional status of patients who underwent various surgical interventions for the stabilization of selected multiple myeloma (MM) lesions in the extremities and pelvis and to investigate the rate of complications requiring reintervention.

Methods: Patients with MM who underwent various surgical interventions for the extremity or pelvic lesions were retrospectively reviewed. Change in the pain intensity was assessed using visual analogous scale (VAS) preoperatively, at the time of discharge, and at the final follow-up. Read More

Diagnostic performance of routine electrophoresis and immunofixation for the detection of immunoglobulin paraproteins (M-Proteins) in dogs with multiple myeloma and related disorders: Part 1 - Current performance.

Vet Clin Pathol 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA.

Background: Routine electrophoresis [agarose gel electrophoresis (AGE) and capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE)] and species-specific immunofixation (IF) can be used alone or in combination to detect immunoglobulin paraprotein (M-protein) and diagnose secretory myeloma-related disorders (sMRD).

Objective: We aimed to evaluate the performance of AGE, CZE, CZE plus IF (CZE-IF), and AGE plus IF (AGE-IF) for detecting canine serum M-proteins.

Methods: One hundred canine cases that had AGE, CZE, and routine IF performed on serum, and where B-cell lineage neoplasia (such as B-cell lymphoma and plasma cell tumors) had been diagnosed or excluded, were evaluated. Read More

Reactivation of resolved hepatitis B after daratumumab for multiple myeloma.

Clin Infect Dis 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Division of gastroenterology and hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

The risk of reactivation of resolved HBV in HBsAg-negative multiple myeloma patients after daratumumab has not been reported. Among 93 patients with daratumumab treatment, reactivation occurred in 6 patients (6.5%) with one hepatic failure. Read More

CARAMBA: a first-in-human clinical trial with SLAMF7 CAR-T cells prepared by virus-free Sleeping Beauty gene transfer to treat multiple myeloma.

Gene Ther 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Division of Medical Biotechnology, Paul Ehrlich Institute, Langen, Germany.

Clinical development of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell therapy has been enabled by advances in synthetic biology, genetic engineering, clinical-grade manufacturing, and complex logistics to distribute the drug product to treatment sites. A key ambition of the CARAMBA project is to provide clinical proof-of-concept for virus-free CAR gene transfer using advanced Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposon technology. SB transposition in CAR-T engineering is attractive due to the high rate of stable CAR gene transfer enabled by optimized hyperactive SB100X transposase and transposon combinations, encoded by mRNA and minicircle DNA, respectively, as preferred vector embodiments.
