Putative cancer stem cells may be the key target to inhibit cancer cell repopulation between the intervals of chemoradiation in murine mesothelioma.

BMC Cancer 2018 April [Link] Wu L, Blum W, Zhu CQ, Yun Z, Pecze L, Kohno M, Chan ML, Zhao Y, Felley-Bosco E, Schwaller B, de Perrot M. Abstract BACKGROUND: Cancer cell repopulation during chemotherapy or radiotherapy is a major factor limiting the efficacy of treatment. Cancer stem cells (CSC) may play critical roles during […]

Pressurized IntraPeritoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC) for the treatment of malignant mesothelioma.

BMC Cancer 2018 April [Link] Giger-Pabst, Demtröder, Falkenstein, Ouaissi, Götze, Rezniczek, Tempfer Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with recurrent malignant epithelioid mesothelioma (MM) after surgery and standard chemotherapy with cisplatin and pemetrexed have limited treatment options. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients with recurrent MM undergoing Pressurized IntraPeritoneal/Thoracal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC/PITAC) with doxorubicin 1.5 mg/m2 and cisplatin 7.5 mg/m2. […]

Live-Cell Mesothelioma Biobank to Explore Mechanisms of Tumor Progression

Frontiers in Oncology 2018 Februrary [Link] Oehl K et. al. Abstract Experimental models closely representing in vivo conditions allow investigating mechanisms of resistance. Our aims were to establish a live-cell biobank of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) samples and to obtain proof of principle that primary culture chemoresistant models, mimicking tumor progression observed in patients, can […]

Aminopeptidase N/CD13 as a Potential Therapeutic Target in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

The European Respiratory Journal [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Otsuki T et. al. Abstract Angiogenesis is a crucial factor in the progression of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), and antiangiogenic strategies might be effective against MPM. Aminopeptidase N/CD13 (APN/CD13) promotes tumour angiogenesis and is associated with poor prognosis; however, its clinical significance in MPM remains unclear.In […]
