Modulation of Calretinin Expression in Human Mesothelioma Cells Reveals the Implication of the FAK and Wnt Signaling Pathways in Conferring Chemoresistance towards Cisplatin.

International Journal of Molecular Science 2019 October 29 [Link] Wörthmüller J, Salicio V, Oberson A, Blum W, Schwaller B Abstract Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is an aggressive asbestos-linked neoplasm, characterized by dysregulation of signaling pathways. Due to intrinsic or acquired chemoresistance, MM treatment options remain limited. Calretinin is a Ca2+-binding protein expressed during MM tumorigenesis that […]

Extrapleural pneumonectomies for pleural mesothelioma.

Expert Review of Respiratory Medicine 2019 November 1 [Link] Faccioli E, Bellini A, Mammana M, Monaci N, Schiavon M, Rea F Abstract Introduction: Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a fatal malignancy for which there is no definitive cure. The most effective multimodality treatment in prolonging survival is still matter of debate. Surgery remains one of […]

Mesothelioma mortality in Great Britain: how much longer will dockyards dominate?

Occupational and Environmental Medicine 2019 October 29 [Link] Reynolds CJ, Minelli C, Darnton A, Cullinan P Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate whether there has been a geographic shift in the distribution of mesothelioma deaths in Great Britain given the decline of shipbuilding and progressive exposure regulation. METHODS: We calculated age-adjusted mesothelioma mortality rates and […]

Detection of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase-Rearranged Mesothelioma Cells in Ascites by Companion Diagnostics.

Acta Cytologica 2019 October 29 [Link] Konishi M, Kanyama T, Maeno K, Miyagawa C, Minamiguchi S, Katsushima H, Shimada T Abstract BACKGROUND: A case of peritoneal mesothelioma with an anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) translocation was identified, and we conducted further studies to obtain diagnostic and therapeutic insights. We believe that this is the first report […]

Primary Malignant Mesothelioma of the Peritoneum Mistaken for Peritoneal Tuberculosis due to Elevated Cancer Antigen 125.

Korean Journal of Gastroenterology 2019 October 25 [Link] Oh JH, Oh MJ Abstract Adifferential diagnosis of ascites is always challenging for physicians. Peritoneal tuberculosis is particularly difficult to distinguish from peritoneal carcinomatosis because of the similarities in clinical manifestations and laboratory results. Although the definitive diagnostic method for ascites is to take a biopsy of […]

Diagnostic Value of Computed Tomography Imaging Features in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma.

Respiration 2019 October 25 [Link] Fortin M, Cabon E, Berbis J, Laroumagne S, Guinde J, Elharrar X, Dutau H, Astoul P Abstract BACKGROUND: Medical history, thoracentesis, and imaging features are usually the first steps in the investigation of a possible malignant pleural effusion (MPE). Unfortunately, the diagnostic yield of thoracentesis in this situation is suboptimal […]

CD70 expression correlates with a worse prognosis in malignant pleural mesothelioma patients via immune evasion and enhanced invasiveness.

The Journal of Pathology 2019 October 22 [Link] Inaguma S, Lasota J, Czapiewski P, Langfort R, Rys J, Szpor J, Waloszczyk P, Okoń K, Biernat W, Schrump DS, Hassan R, Kasai K, Miettinen M, Ikeda H Abstract Diffuse malignant mesothelioma of the pleura (MPM) is a highly aggressive tumour that typically is associated with short […]

Why Be One Protein When You Can Affect Many? The Multiple Roles of YB-1 in Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma.

Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology 2019 October 1 [Link] Johnson TG, Schelch K, Mehta S, Burgess A, Reid G Abstract Lung cancers and malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) have some of the worst 5-year survival rates of all cancer types, primarily due to a lack of effective treatment options for most patients. Targeted therapies have […]

Posterior Intercostal Lymph Nodes Double Recurrence and Death Risk in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma.

The Annals of Thoracic Surgery 2019 October 18 [Link] Friedberg JS, Simone CB 2nd, Culligan MJ, Putt ME, Barsky AR, Katz S, Cengel KA Abstract BACKGROUND: Posterior intercostal lymph nodes, previously undescribed for cancer staging, are part of the lymphatic drainage of the pleural space. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact […]
