https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8507344
BMC Cancer; Ma W, Liang J et. al.

Oct 13th, 2021 - Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is the most prevalent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients with LUAD have a poor 5-year survival rate. The use of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for the treatment of LUAD has been on the rise in the past decade. This study explored the prognostic role of butyrophilin-like 9 (BTNL9) in LUAD. Gene expression profile of buytrophilins (BTNs) was determined us...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8496782
PloS One; Gedeborg R, Styrke J et. al.

Oct 8th, 2021 - Men have a higher risk of death from COVID-19 than women and androgens facilitate entrance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus into respiratory epithelial cells. Thus, androgen deprivation therapy may reduce infection rates and improve outcomes for COVID-19. In the spring of 2020, Sweden was highly affected by COVID-19. The aim was to estimate the impact of androgen deprivation therapy on mortality from CO...

Anticancer Research; Betsunoh H, Sakamoto S et. al.

Oct 2nd, 2021 - 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake measurement on positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is difficult in renal tumors because of the nearby renal parenchyma and urinary tract, which excrete FDG. We carefully examined the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) on FDG-PET/CT and investigated the relationship between major glucose transporters in the kidney and clear cell r...

Anticancer Research; Islam S, Kitagawa T et. al.

Oct 2nd, 2021 - Proteomics is an approach that can detect differentially expressed proteins between cancerous and non-cancerous tissue samples. Previously, we found that vinculin was predominantly expressed in pancreatic cancerous tissues compared to adjacent non-cancerous tissues by performing proteomic differential display analysis. However, the clinicopathological significance of vinculin in pancreatic canc...
