cells transit from free swimming to surface adapted lifestyles, such as swarming colonies and three-dimensional biofilms. These transitions are regulated by sensory modules and regulatory networks that involve the second messenger cyclic dimeric guanosine monophosphate (c-di-GMP). In this work, we show that a previously uncharacterized c-di-GMP phosphodiesterase (VP1881) from plays an important role in modulating the c-di-GMP pool. Read More

Is there sufficient evidence to recommend women diagnosed with endometrial cancer take a statin: Results from an Australian record-linkage study.

Gynecol Oncol 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Population Health Department, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, Australia; University of Queensland, School of Public Health, Brisbane, Australia. Electronic address:

Objective: A recent paper suggested all women with endometrial cancer should take statins but it is unclear whether there is sufficient evidence to justify this recommendation.

Methods: We identified all women diagnosed with uterine cancer in Australia between July 2003 and December 2013 (2012 in New South Wales) through the Australian Cancer Database (N = 16,501) and linked these to the national prescription database and National Death Index to identify statin use and survival outcomes to December 2015. We used Cox proportional hazards regression to estimate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the associations between statin use and survival. Read More

A cell-to-patient machine learning transfer approach uncovers novel basal-like breast cancer prognostic markers amongst alternative splice variants.

BMC Biol 2021 Apr 12;19(1):70. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Institut de Génétique Humaine (IGH-UMR9002), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), University of Montpellier, Montpellier, France.

Background: Breast cancer is amongst the 10 first causes of death in women worldwide. Around 20% of patients are misdiagnosed leading to early metastasis, resistance to treatment and relapse. Many clinical and gene expression profiles have been successfully used to classify breast tumours into 5 major types with different prognosis and sensitivity to specific treatments. Read More

Metabolic imaging with hyperpolarized C pyruvate magnetic resonance imaging in patients with renal tumors-Initial experience.

Cancer 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California-San Francisco, San Francisco, California.

Background: Optimal treatment selection for localized renal tumors is challenging because of their variable biologic behavior and limitations in the preoperative assessment of tumor aggressiveness. The authors investigated the emerging hyperpolarized (HP) C magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to noninvasively assess tumor lactate production, which is strongly associated with tumor aggressiveness.

Methods: Eleven patients with renal tumors underwent HP C pyruvate MRI before surgical resection. Read More

High-Throughput and Automated Acoustic Trapping of Extracellular Vesicles to Identify microRNAs With Diagnostic Potential for Prostate Cancer.

Front Oncol 2021 25;11:631021. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden.

Molecular profiling of extracellular vesicles (EVs) offers novel opportunities for diagnostic applications, but the current major obstacle for clinical translation is the lack of efficient, robust, and reproducible isolation methods. To bridge that gap, we developed a microfluidic, non-contact, and low-input volume compatible acoustic trapping technology for EV isolation that enabled downstream small RNA sequencing. In the current study, we have further automated the acoustic microfluidics-based EV enrichment technique that enables us to serially process 32 clinical samples per run. Read More

Factors associated with the double burden of malnutrition at the household level: A scoping review.

Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr 2021 Apr 10:1-12. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Center for Advancing Population Science, Department of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

The double burden of malnutrition (DBM) at the household level has been defined as the coexistence of underweight children and overweight mothers within the same household. The objective of the scoping review was to identify and understand factors associated with DBM. We conducted the scoping review of published, peer-reviewed journal articles in two major databases used in public health research (PubMed and Web of Science). Read More
