BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) are commonly used in the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) originating from colorectal, appendiceal and ovarian cancers. It is unclear what benefit CRS/HIPEC might have for PC from uncommon etiologies, therefore we sought to describe local practice patterns and evaluate overall survival (OS). METHODS: All patients who had CRS/HIPEC between 2000 and 2016 were identified using our institutional cancer database...

Aspongopus chinensis Dallas is used as a traditional Chinese medicine. In China, clinical evidence suggests that it has anticancer activity. However, the anticancer active components are not fully elucidated. In the present study, we purified an anticancer active component (named CHP) from A. chinensis. To gain a comprehensive insight into the protein components, shotgun proteomic analysis was conducted. The anticancer active protein band was cut from the sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis gel and digested with trypsin to generate peptide mixture...

BACKGROUND: CircRNA has emerged as a new non-coding RNA that plays crucial roles in tumour initiation and development. 'MiRNA sponge' is the most reported role played by circRNAs in many tumours. The AKT/mTOR axis is a classic signalling pathway in cancers that sustains energy homeostasis through energy production activities, such as the Warburg effect, and blocks catabolic activities, such as autophagy. Additionally, the AKT/mTOR axis exerts a positive effect on EMT, which promotes tumour metastasis...

RN181, a RING finger domain-containing protein, is an E3 ubiquitin ligase. However, its biological function and clinical significance in cancer biology are obscure. Here, we report that RN181 expression is significantly down-regulated in 165 tumour tissues of gastric carcinoma (GC) versus adjacent non-tumour tissues, and inversely-associated with tumour differentiation, tumour size, clinical stage and patient's overall survival. Alterations of RN181 expression in GC cells by retrovirus-transduced up-regulation and down-regulation demonstrated that RN181 functions as a tumour suppressor to inhibit growth of GC in both in vitro culture and in vivo animal models by decreasing tumour cell proliferation and increasing tumour cell apoptosis...

Gastric cancer (GC) ranks as the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide, and approximately 42% of all cases diagnosed each year worldwide are diagnosed in China. A large number of clinical applications have revealed that Trametes robiniophila Μurr. (Huaier) exhibits an anti-tumour effect. However, loss of the bioactive components of Huaier during the extraction procedure with water is unavoidable, and the underlying mechanism of the anti-cancer effect of Huaier remains poorly understood...

AIMS: The International Endocervical Adenocarcinoma Criteria and Classification (IECC) was recently proposed as an improved method for categorising endocervical adenocarcinoma (EA) into human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated adenocarcinomas (HPVAs) and non-HPV-associated adenocarcinomas (NHPVAs). Such categorisation correlates with patient age and tumour size; however, its association with patient outcome remains to be established. METHODS: Institutional cases of EA with histological material available were selected...

Incidence rates of gastric cancer in Malaysia has declined by 48% among males and 31% among females in the latest reporting period of 13 years. Malays used to have age-standardized-rates only a fifth of those in Chinese and Indians, but the incidence among them is slightly rising even as the rates drop in the other races. Besides ethnicity, a low level of education, high intake of salted fish and vegetables, H pylori infection and smoking are risk factors. Consumption of fresh fruit and vegetable is protective...

Florid cutaneous papillomatosis is a rare paraneoplastic dermatosis, most commonly associated with gastric adenocarcinoma. It is characterized by a sudden onset of hyperkeratotic papules, clinically indistinguishable from viral warts. We report an 80-year-old man who presented to our department with a two-month history of multiple verrucous lesions affecting the face, perioral region, and hands. Two years before, he was treated for a gastric adenocarcinoma with a subtotal gastrectomy, but showed no evidence of residual disease or recurrence...

The plastin3 ( PLS3 ) gene, which encodes an actin bundling protein known to inhibit cofilin-mediated depolymerization of actin fiber, has been previously reported to serve an important role in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer. The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical significance of PLS3 and its role in regulating EMT, as well as in promoting cell invasion and migration in gastric cancer. The expression of plastin3 mRNA was measured in 163 resected gastric cancer specimens, in order to determine the clinicopathological significance...

CDH1 encodes E-cadherin, a key protein in adherens junctions. Given that E-cadherin is involved in major cellular processes such as embryogenesis and maintenance of tissue architecture, it is no surprise that deleterious effects arise from its loss of function. E-cadherin is recognised as a tumour suppressor gene, and it is well established that CDH1 genetic alterations cause diffuse gastric cancer and lobular breast cancer-the foremost manifestations of the hereditary diffuse gastric cancer syndrome. However, in the last decade, evidence has emerged demonstrating that CDH1 mutations can be associated with lobular breast cancer and/or several congenital abnormalities, without any personal or family history of diffuse gastric cancer...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic gastrectomy revolutionised the management of gastric cancer, yet its oncologic equivalency and safety in treating advanced gastric cancer (especially that in smaller centres) has remained controversial because of the extensive lymphadenectomy and learning curve involved. This study aimed to compare outcomes following laparoscopic versus open gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer at a regional institution in Hong Kong. METHODS: Fifty-four patients who underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy from January 2009 to March 2017 were compared with 167 patients who underwent open gastrectomy during the same period...

BACKGROUND: Adrenal metastases can arise from different primary sites. Surgical resection of the adrenal gland in patients with isolated metastases may offer improved survival in many of these patients. However, the benefit of surgery in this heterogenous group is often disputed. The aim of this study was to identify patients undergoing adrenalectomy for isolated metastases and to describe survival outcomes based on origin of the primary malignancy. METHODS: Patients undergoing surgery for isolated adrenal metastases were retrospectively analysed from a prospectively kept database...

Gastric cancer (GC) is the second primary cause of cancer-associated mortality around the world. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are critical modulators of multiple cellular processes, and their abnormal expression and/or function are related to a variety of diseases, including cancer. Nowadays, various lncRNAs have been unveiled to exert a functional role in GC, but more still remain to be identified since the therapies for GC patients are limited. Herein, we discover LINC02465, a novel recognized lncRNA, is upregulated and correlated with tumour size, tumour stage, lymph node metastasis and differentiation in gastric cancer...
