Researchers gain insight into factors influencing immunotherapy response in kidney cancer

Jul 10th, 2020 - Tumor mutational burden is considered a hallmark indicator of a tumor’s potential for response to immunotherapy. PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors such as pembrolizumab (Keytruda, Merck) and nivolumab (Opdivo, Bristol-Myers Squibb) have been shown to be more effective in treating tumors with high mutational burden. However, despite having only a moderate number of mutations, advanced clear cell ren...

New Kidney Cancer Research From the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program Demonstrates an Exciting, Evolving Field

Jun 25th, 2020 - There used to be a paucity of options for managing advanced renal cell cancer (RCC) with a high toxicity profile including traditional chemotherapy, interferon, and interleukins. With the advent of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in 2007 followed by immunotherapy over the past few years, a paradigm shift emerged in managing this increasingly prevalent disease with its associated high morbidit...

Autoantibodies May Predict Disease Response in Metastasized Melanoma Treated With Checkpoint Inhibitors

May 30th, 2020 - There is a diverse and broad autoantibody response to tumor and autoimmune disease antigens in melanoma treated with checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs). Results from a recent study presented during the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Meeting show that some of those autoantibodies correlate to clinical outcomes and immune-related adverse events (irAEs; Abstract 10011).

Study Finds Patients With Lung Cancer Infected With COVID-19 Are at High Risk for Hospitalization

May 29th, 2020 - Data from the global TERAVOLT Consortium, which is investigating the impact of COVID-19 infection on patients with thoracic cancers, have found that these patients are at high risk for hospitalization and death. Prior use of chemotherapy was associated with an increased risk of mortality, as was the use of steroids or anticoagulants. Prior administration of immunotherapy and chemoimmunotherapy ...

May 29th, 2020 - David O'Malley, MD, professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center–The James, discusses the role of PARP inhibitors in the treatment landscape of ovarian cancer.

Addition of Ublituximab to Ibrutinib Appears Safe and Effective for Patients With High-Risk Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

May 13th, 2020 - Although chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has a relatively high 5-year survival rate (85% for people age 20 and older), effective treatments for advanced disease are still needed. Use of combination or monotherapy Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors has shown promise for people with CLL, with the BTK inhibitor ibrutinib now considered a standard of care for patients of any age. However,...

Combination Immunotherapy Could Be a Potential Treatment Option for Rare Gynecologic Cancers, Pending Randomized Trial Validation

May 13th, 2020 - The novel combination of immune checkpoint inhibitors ipilimumab and nivolumab may offer patients with rare gynecologic neoplasms the opportunity for improved outcomes, according to a new study (Abstract 6091) that will be presented during the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program.

Antihypertensive drugs and risk of COVID-19?
The Lancet Respiratory Medicine;

Mar 26th, 2020 - Lei Fang and colleagues1 suggest that clinicians should consider withholding angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) because of a potential increased risk of worse clinical outcomes in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and they suggest calcium channel blockers as an alternative. The hypothesis behind this suggestion is that the e...

Statins and the COVID-19 main protease: in silico evidence on direct interaction
Archives of Medical Science; Reiner Z

Apr 25th, 2020 - No proven drug and no immunisation are yet available for COVID-19 disease. The SARS-CoV-2 main protease (Mpro), a key coronavirus enzyme, which is a potential drug target, has been successfully crystallised. There is evidence suggesting that statins exert anti-viral activity and may block the infectivity of enveloped viruses. The aim of this study was to assess whether statins are potential COV...

Anti-interleukin-1 treatment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and type 2 diabetes (TRACK): A multicentre, open-label, randomised controlled trial
PLOS Medicine; Ruscitti P

Sep 16th, 2019 - The inflammatory contribution to type 2 diabetes (T2D) has suggested new therapeutic targets using biologic drugs designed for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). On this basis, we aimed at investigating whether interleukin-1 (IL-1) inhibition with anakinra, a recombinant human IL-1 receptor antagonist, could improve both glycaemic and inflammatory parameters in participants with RA and T2D compared wit...

The Hypotensive Role of Acupuncture in Hypertension: Clinical Study and Mechanistic Study

As a component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture has the potential to lower blood pressure (BP) in patients with hypertension. Emerging evidence indicates that the acupuncture-induced inhibition of high BP occurs through the activation of the pathway in the afferent, central, and efferent pathways. An increasing number of studies have demonstrated that acupuncture not only acti...

Cardiovascular Disease, Drug Therapy, and Mortality in Covid-19
The New England Journal of Medicine;

Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) may disproportionately affect people with cardiovascular disease. Concern has been aroused regarding a potential harmful effect of angiotensin-converting–enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) in this clinical context.

Drug repurposing for coronavirus (COVID-19): in silico screening of known drugs against coronavirus 3CL hydrolase and protease enzymes
Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics;

In December 2019, COVID-19 epidemic was described in Wuhan, China, and the infection has spread widely affecting hundreds of thousands. Herein, an effort was made to identify commercially available drugs in order to repurpose them against coronavirus by the means of structure-based virtual screening. In addition, ZINC15 library was used to identify novel leads against main proteases. Human TMPR...
