Well-Differentiated Papillary Mesothelioma of the Peritoneum: A Retrospective Study from the RENAPE Observational Registry.

Annals of Surgical Oncology 2019 January 11 [Link] Vogin G1, Hettal L, Vignaud JM, Dartigues P, Goere D, Ferron G, Heyd B, Bereder JM, Tuech JJ, Glehen O,  de Chaisemartin C, Lherm Y, Villeneuve L, Kepenekian V, Marchal F BACKGROUND: Well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma of the peritoneum (WDPMP) is a rare entity. Questions regarding management are still being debated as no more than 50 cases have been reported in the literature. OBJECTIVE: […]

Heparanase inhibitors restrain mesothelioma.

Oncotarget 2018 December 7 [Link] Lapidot M1, Barash U1, Vlodavsky I1, Pass H2. Abstract Malignant mesothelioma is a highly aggressive form of cancer with poor prognosis due to lack of markers for early diagnosis and resistance to conventional therapies. Heparanase, the sole heparan sulfate (HS) degrading endoglycosidase, regulates multiple biological activities that enhance tumor growth, metastasis, angiogenesis, and inflammation. Heparanase accomplishes this […]

Computational prediction of diagnosis and feature selection on mesothelioma patient health records.

PLos One 2019 January 10 [Link] Chicco D , Rovelli C BACKGROUND: Mesothelioma is a lung cancer that kills thousands of people worldwide annually, especially those with exposure to asbestos. Diagnosis of mesothelioma in patients often requires time-consuming imaging techniques and biopsies. Machine learning can provide for a more effective, cheaper, and faster patient diagnosis and feature […]

MicroRNAs for the Diagnosis and Management of Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Literature Review.

Frontiers in Oncology 2018 December 21 [Link] Lo Russo G, Tessari A, Capece M, Galli G, de Braud F, Garassino MC, Palmieri D Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a rare and aggressive tumor with a variable incidence among different countries. Occupational asbestos exposure is the most important etiological factor and a very long latency […]

Correlation of patient survival with clinical tumor measurements in malignant pleural mesothelioma.

European Radiology 2019 January 7 [Link] Li F, Ahmad M, Qayyum F, Straus CM, MacMahon H, Kindler H, Armato SG Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate differences in the tumor response classifications that result from clinical measurements and to compare these response classifications with overall survival for patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). METHODS: One hundred thirty-one […]

Population-Based Cohort Study on Health Effects of Asbestos Exposure in Japan.

Cancer Science 2019 January 7 [Link] Zha L, Kitamura Y, Kitamura T, Liu R, Shima M, Kurumatani N, Nakaya T, Goji J, Sobue T Abstract Occupational asbestos exposure occurs in many workplaces and is a well-known cause of mesothelioma and lung cancer. However, the association between non-occupational asbestos exposure and those diseases is not clearly […]

Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition in Human Mesothelial Cells Exposed to Asbestos Fibers: Role of TGF-β as Mediator of Malignant Mesothelioma Development or Metastasis via EMT Event.

International Journal of Molecular Sciences 2019 January 3 [Link] Turini S, Bergandi L, Gazzano E, Prato M, Aldieri E Abstract Asbestos exposure increases the risk of asbestosis and malignant mesothelioma (MM). Both fibrosis and cancer have been correlated with the Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition (EMT)-an event involved in fibrotic development and cancer progression. During EMT, […]

Factors influencing malignant mesothelioma survival: a retrospective review of the National Mesothelioma Virtual Bank cohort.

F1000Research 2018 August 3 [Link] Amin W, Linkov F, Landsittel DP, Silverstein JC, Becich MJ Abstract Background: Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a rare but deadly malignancy with about 3,000 new cases being diagnosed each year in the US. Very few studies have been performed to analyze factors associated with mesothelioma survival, especially for peritoneal presentation. […]

Malignant mesothelioma: A histomorphological and immunohistochemical study of 24 cases from a tertiary care hospital in Southern India.

Indian Journal of Cancer 2018 April-June [Link] Hui M, Uppin SG, Bhaskar K, Kumar NN, Paramjyothi GK Abstract BACKGROUND: Malignant mesotheliomas are histologically heterogeneous neoplasms. Definite diagnosis requires a varied panel of immunohistochemical (IHC) markers to differentiate these from histological mimics. Only a few case series have been reported in the Indian literature where mesotheliomas […]

Association between mesothelioma and non-occupational asbestos exposure: systematic review and meta-analysis.

Environmental Health 2018 December 19 [Link] Xu R, Barg FK, Emmett EA, Wiebe DJ, Hwang WT Abstract BACKGROUND: The risk of mesothelioma has been shown to be associated with exposure to asbestos fibers. Most of the existing literature focuses on occupational exposure; however, non-occupational asbestos exposure has also been identified as an important risk factor. […]
