Natural killer cells put breast cancer to sleep

Even after apparently successful treatment of primary tumor, some undetectable tumor cells can persist and cause cancer to eventually come back. These cells spread beyond the primary tumor to other organs of the body, where they lay dormant until awakening into deadly metastases.

Transcriptome Reprogramming of CD11b+ Bone Marrow Cells by Pancreatic Cancer Extracellular Vesicles

O cancro de pâncreas é a quarta principal causa de mortes relacionadas ao cancro no mundo, apresentando uma taxa de sobrevida de 5 anos de cerca de 6% e uma taxa de sobrevida média de cerca de 6 meses. Entre os cancros pancreáticos, o adenocarcinoma ductal pancreático (CP) é o tipo mais comum e é responsável por mais de 90% dos casos. Uma combinação de fatores leva ao mau prognóstico do CP, incluindo dificuldades na deteção da doença em estágio inicial, seu alto potencial metastático e sua resistência às terapias convencionais.

Aberrant Glycosylation in Cancer: A Novel Molecular Mechanism Controlling Metastasis – PREVIEW

Major alterations in cell glycosylation occurring during cancer development and progression represent key features of tumor cell malignant behavior. In this publication, the authors preview and put in context the findings of Agrawal et al. (Cancer Cell, Vol. 31, Issue 6, 2017) that identified and characterized a novel molecular mechanism in which aberrant glycosylation actively tunes the metastatic capacity of melanoma cells by preventing the proteolytic cleavage of the L1CAM adhesion molecule.

O factor de transcrição embrionário Brachyury é um novo biomarcador de agressividade e pior prognóstico em tumores do estroma gastrointestinal (GIST)

O factor de transcrição Brachyury foi recentemente descrito como estando sobre-expresso e associado com pior prógnostico em tumores sólidos. No presente estudo avaliamos o potencial valor de prognóstico de Brachyury em tumores do estroma gastrointestinal (GIST).
