PURPOSE: Adjuvant immunotherapy with immune checkpoint blockade(ICB) has greatly reduced the risk of recurrence and metastatic spread in early and advanced melanoma. However, not all patients benefit from adjuvant treatment: many patients show disease recurrence despite therapy, while those without recurrence harbor the risk for potentially irreversible adverse events. Biomarkers to select patients benefitting most from adjuvant therapy are currently lacking. As body composition assessment using CT images has shown promising results as a prognostic biomarker in stage IV melanoma, we aim to study the applicability of body composition parameters also in adjuvant melanoma treatment...

PURPOSE: Somatostatin receptor (SSTR)-targeted PET imaging has emerged as a common approach to evaluating those patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). The SSTR reporting and data system (SSTR-RADS) version 1.0 provides a means of categorizing lesions from 1 to 5 according to the likelihood of NET involvement, with SSTR-RADS-3A (soft-tissue) and SSTR-RADS-3B (bone) lesions being those suggestive of but without definitive NET involvement. The goal of the present study was to assess the ability of 68 Ga-DOTATATE PET/MR imaging data to predict outcomes for indeterminate SSTR-RADS-3A and 3B lesions...

PURPOSE: The vital function of eloquent and deep brain areas necessitates precise treatment for tumors located in these regions. Fluorescein-guided surgery (FGS) has been widely used for high-grade gliomas (HGGs) resection. Nevertheless, the safety and efficacy of utilizing this technique for resecting brain tumors located in eloquent and deep-seated areas remain uncertain. This study aims to assess the safety and extent of resection of HGGs in these challenging tumors with fluorescein and explore its impact on patient survival...

OBJECTIVE: Previous research has shown that both temozolomide (TMZ) and PD-1/L1 inhibitors (PD-1/L1) alone exhibit certain potential in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with brain metastases (BM), in this study, we will explore combining the two in order to seek new effective treatment options for NSCLC with BM. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During 2021.1 to 2023.12, we collected the date of these pretreated-NSCLC with BM who accept the treatment of TMZ and PD-1/L1, the objective response ratio (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were set as the primary endpoint, meanwhile, the toxicity of such regimen was also recorded...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) are the most common primary liver cancers. Little is known about the combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-ICC) variant and the proper therapeutic strategies. Out of over 1200 available studies about cHCC-ICC, we selected the most representative ones that reflected updated information with application to individualized therapy. Based on literature data and own experience, we hypothesize that two molecular groups of cHCC-ICC can be identified...

BACKGROUND: Ewing's sarcoma (ES) is an aggressive cancer of bone and soft tissue, most of which tend to occur in the bone. Extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma (EES) of the cervix is extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: In the present work, we reported a 39-year-old cervical EES patient with a 2.5*2.1*1.8 cm tumor mass. According to previous literatures, our case is the smallest tumor found in primary cervical ES ever. The patient initially came to our hospital due to vaginal bleeding, and then the gynecological examination found a neoplasm between the cervical canal and partially in the external cervical orifice...

BACKGROUND: Incidental colorectal fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake, observed during positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans, attracts particular attention due to its potential to represent both benign and pre-malignant/malignant lesions. Early detection and excision of these lesions are crucial for preventing cancer development and reducing mortality. This research aims to evaluate the correlation between incidental colorectal FDG uptake on PET/CT with colonoscopic and histopathological results...

PURPOSE: Carfilzomib, commonly used for relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM), has been associated with various adverse events in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). However, real-world safety data for a more diverse population are needed, as carfilzomib received expedited approval. This study aimed to evaluate carfilzomib's safety in Korea by comparing new users of KRd (carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone) to Rd (lenalidomide and dexamethasone) using a nationwide administrative claims database...

BACKGROUND: Bladder cancer (BCa) is among the most prevalent malignant tumors affecting the urinary system. Due to its highly recurrent nature, standard treatments such as surgery often fail to significantly improve patient prognosis. Our research aims to predict prognosis and identify precise therapeutic targets for novel treatment interventions. METHODS: We collected and screened genes related to the TGF-β signaling pathway and performed unsupervised clustering analysis on TCGA-BLCA samples based on these genes...

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most prevalent malignant tumors worldwide. The low effectiveness of common biomarkers for the detection of early GC makes it essential to seek new biomarkers to improve diagnostic efficacy. tsRNAs (transfer RNA-derived small RNAs) are related to the growth of malignant tumors. In this article, we focused on whether tsRNAs may be employed as biomarkers for GC. METHODS: tRF-17-18VBY9M was screened in the tsRFun database as a research object...

This study aims to investigate the effect of tumor infiltrating B lymphocytes (TIBs) on the combination therapy. METHODS: The retrospective analysis was conducted on the clinical records of 115 metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (mccRCC) patients treated with anti-PD-1 antibody plus Axitinib between March 2020 and June 2023...

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer (GC) is a significant health issue globally, ranking as the fifth most common cancer with over 10,000 new cases reported annually. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) has emerged as a critical player in cellular functions, influencing GC's development, growth, metastasis, and prognosis. However, our understanding of lncRNA's role in the pathogenesis of GC remains limited. Therefore, it is particularly important to explore the relationship between lncRNA and gastric cancer...

PURPOSE: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NCT) is the standard preoperative treatment for resectable locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Some studies reported neoadjuvant immunochemotherapy (NICT) could improve pathological response with manageable safety. However, few studies have compared the efficacy and safety of NICT and NCT, especially survival outcomes. In this study, we compared the efficacy and safety of NICT and NCT after a median follow-up of 36.0 months...

PURPOSE: Breast cancer metastasis relies on cellular invasion and angiogenesis facilitated by the downregulation of metastatic suppressor proteins like Cluster of Differentiation 82 (CD82). Currently, no medicines target multiple systems to prevent metastatic progression through CD82 upregulation. This study screened for plant extracts displaying effects on cell proliferation, invasion, and CD82 expression in breast cancer cells, and in vivo angiogenesis, and further correlated between the biological activities and effect on CD82 expression...

PURPOSE: Breast cancer (BC) is the most prevalent malignant tumor worldwide among women, with the highest incidence rate. The mechanisms underlying nucleotide metabolism on biological functions in BC remain incompletely elucidated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We harnessed differentially expressed nucleotide metabolism-related genes from The Cancer Genome Atlas-BRCA, constructing a prognostic risk model through univariate Cox regression and LASSO regression analyses. A validation set and the GSE7390 dataset were used to validate the risk model...

High mobility group AT-hook 2 (HMGA2) is a member of the non-histone chromosomal high mobility group (HMG) protein family, which participate in embryonic development and other biological processes. HMGA2 overexpression is associated with breast cancer (BC) cell growth, proliferation, metastasis, and drug resistance. Furthermore, HMGA2 expression is positively associated with poor prognosis of patients with BC, and inhibiting HMGA2 signaling can stimulate BC cell progression and metastasis. In this review, we focus on HMGA2 expression changes in BC tissues and multiple BC cell lines...
