Bladder cancer (BC) is one of the most common neoplastic diseases worldwide. With the highest recurrence rate among all cancers, treatment of BC only improved a little in the last 30 years. Available biomarkers are not sensitive enough for the diagnosis of BC, whereas the standard diagnostic method, cystoscopy, is an invasive test and expensive. Hence, seeking new biomarkers of BC is urgent and challenging. With that order, we screened the overlapped differentially expressed genes (DEGs) of GSE13507 and TCGA BLCA datasets...

BACKGROUND: Pagetoid spread of urothelial carcinoma (UC) to the lower genital tract is quite a rare and diagnostically challenging condition. Pagetoid urothelial intraepithelial neoplasia extending to the vagina is difficult to diagnose, especially in remote recurrences without symptomatic or macroscopic lesions typical to Paget disease. However, its identification by cervical screening cytology is important because UC is often characterized by a long history of relapse. CASE PRESENTATION: A 68-year-old Japanese postmenopausal woman developed brown vaginal discharge after radical cystectomy for bladder cancer (high-grade UC, pT2a pN0 cM0 [Union for International Cancer Control, 8th edition]) concomitant with focal in-situ UC in the urethra...

Macromolecules are potentially useful delivery systems for cancer drugs as their size allows them to utilize the enhanced permeability and retention effect (EPR), which facilitates selective delivery to (and retention within) tumors. In addition, macromolecular delivery systems can prolong circulation times as well as protecting and solubilizing toxic and hydrophobic drug moieties. Overall these properties and abilities can result in an enhanced therapeutic effect. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) combines the use of oxygen and a photosensitizer (PS), that become toxic upon light-irradiation...

The incidence of bladder cancer (BCa) in China is the highest among genitourinary system tumors, and its progression is affected by multitudinous pathways, of which cell cycle progress plays an important role. This study screened and enriched differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from four gene expression profiles using bioinformatics analysis methods. The enrichment and analysis of gene function showed that these genes were highly correlated with cell cycle regulation. Identification of candidate small molecules was conducted to evaluate the application of clinical transformation in these DEGs...

Bladder cancer (BCa) is one of the most prevalent cancers of the urinary system worldwide. Accumulating evidence suggests that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) perform a vital function in the pathogenesis and progression of BCa. In the current study, we identified a novel lncRNA OXCT1-AS1 and investigated its role and potential mechanisms in BCa. The microarray results showed the expression of lncRNAs, microRNAs, and messenger RNAs between BCa primary tumor tissues and metastatic lymph nodes were significantly different...

It is becoming understood that microRNAs hold great promise for non-invasive liquid biopsies for screening for different types of cancer, but current state-of-the-art RT-PCR and microarray techniques have sensitivity limitations that currently restrict their use. Herein, we report a new transduction mechanism involving delocalization of photoexcited conduction electrons wavefunction of gold triangular nanoprism (Au TNP) in the presence of -ssDNA/microRNA duplexes. This plasmoelectronic effect reduces the electron density of Au TNPs and substantially affects their localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) properties that together allow us to achieve a sensitivity for microRNA assay as low as 140 zeptomolar concentrations for our nanoplasmonic sensors...
