    OPA3 overexpression modulates lipid droplet production and sensitizes colorectal cancer cells to bevacizumab treatment

    HONGBIAO WU*, DONGFANG LIU

    BIOCELL, Vol.48, No.6, pp. 971-980, 2024, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2024.049466

    Abstract Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) represents a substantial risk to public health. Bevacizumab, the first US FDA-approved antiangiogenic drug (AAD) for human CRC treatment, faces resistance in patients. The role of lipid metabolism, particularly through OPA3-regulated lipid droplet production, in overcoming this resistance is under investigation. Methods: The protein expression pattern of OPA3 in CRC primary/normal tissues was evaluated by bioinformatics analysis. OPA3-overexpressed SW-480 and HCT-116 cell lines were established, and bevacizumab resistance and OPA3 effects on cell malignancy were examined. OPA3 protein/mRNA expression and lipid droplet-related genes were measured with Western blot and qRT-PCR. OPA3… More > Graphic Abstract

    BINGJIE LI1,#, WENBO CAO1,2,3,#, JINJING XIAO1, YIXIAO CHEN1, QIYING WEI1, MINGJIN YUE4, SAIJUN MO1,2,3,*

    BIOCELL, Vol.48, No.6, pp. 923-934, 2024, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2024.049160

    Abstract Perineural invasion (PNI), a particularly insidious form of tumor metastasis distinct from hematogenous or lymphatic spread, has the capacity to extend well beyond the primary tumor site, infiltrating distant regions devoid of lymphatic or vascular structures. PNI often heralds a decrease in patient survival rates and is recognized as an indicator of an unfavorable prognosis across a variety of cancers. Despite its clinical significance, the underlying molecular mechanisms of PNI remain elusive, complicating the development of specific and efficacious diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. In the realm of cancer research, non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have attracted considerable… More >

    Jiahao Su*, Meiqin Cai*, Wensheng Li*, Bo Hou, Haiyong He, Cong Ling,Tengchao Huang, Huijiao Liu, Ying Guo*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.2, pp. 117-128, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14612603423511

    Abstract Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary malignant brain tumor that nearly always results in a bad prognosis. Temozolomide plus radiotherapy (TEM+RAD) is the most common treatment for newly diagnosed GBM. With the development of molecularly targeted drugs, several clinical trials were reported; however, the efficacy of the treatment remains controversial. So we attempted to measure the dose of the molecularly targeted drug that could improve the prognosis of those patients. The appropriate electronic databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library) were searched for relevant studies. A meta-analysis was performed after determining which studies… More >

    Abstract Relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) represents a major therapeutic challenge. Achieving complete remission (CR) with salvage chemotherapy is the first goal of therapy for relapsed AML. However, there is no standard salvage chemotherapy. The current study evaluated outcomes and prognostic factors for achievement of CR in 91 AML patients in first relapse who were treated with the mitoxantrone–etoposide combination regimen. The overall response rate (CR and CRi) was 25%. Factors that were associated with a lower rate of CR included older age, shorter duration of first CR, low hemoglobin, and low platelet count. The median… More >

    Abstract Epithelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations are present in 10%–26% of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumors and are associated with the response to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). This study aimed to detect and quantify the presence of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in EGFR-mutant NSCLC patients and investigate their possible role in providing prognostic information. Enrolled patients received erlotinib (150 mg) or gefitinib (250 mg) orally once daily as the first-line treatment. Serial blood samples were taken at baseline (CTC-d0) and on day 28 (CTC-d28) following the initiation of erlotinib/gefitinib for detection of CTCs using… More >

    Abstract Ovarian cancer is the most lethal disease among gynecological malignancies. More effective therapy is required to counter high recurrence rates and chemotherapy resistance. We investigated the efficacy and molecular mechanisms of three combined treatments (TCTs)—a novel histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor OBP-801/YM753, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and paclitaxel (PTX)—in human ovarian cancer SKOV-3 and OVCAR-3 cells. The inhibition of cell growth was stronger with TCTs than with each single agent and with two combined treatments. The TCTs significantly induce G2 phase arrest in both cell lines. We then analyzed the molecular mechanisms and found that the TCTs increased the More >
