  • Detection of Micro-invasion in Sudanese Oral Verrucous Carcinoma Samples
           Using Syndecan-1 Stain

    • Authors: AKB Elhassan, AM Suleiman, NIA El Dawi, Sofia B Mohamed
      Abstract: Biomarkers in Cancer, Volume 11, Issue , January-December 2018.
      Aim:Verrucous carcinoma (VC) is a low-grade rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Syndecan-1 (CD138) is a heparan sulfate proteoglycan which participates in cell-to-cell adhesion and cell-matrix interaction. Being misled by the apparent non-aggressive nature of VC, some clinicians and pathologists believe that this tumor is not an aggressive tumor, not realizing the fact that some of these lesions may contain nests or foci of well-differentiated SCC. This study aimed to assess syndecan-1 expression of VC and detection of micro-invasion in VC using syndecan-1 immunohistochemical (IHC) stain.Methods:Observational analytical study of 34 paraffin block of VC cases and 24 cases of variable grades of oral epithelial dysplasia. Cases were stained by hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) and then IHC stain for syndecan-1 was applied. Nine paraffin blocks from specimens of normal oral mucosa were used as the reference group for syndecan-1 stain positivity.Results:In this study, we found that 32 (94.1%) out of 34 of verrucous carcinoma cases showed loss of syndecan-1 expression. Moreover, highly statistically significant association was found between the presence of suggestive micro-invasion in H&E and loss of syndecan-1 expression in micro-invasive area in the same case.Conclusions:In conclusion, syndecan-1 stain can be used as a biomarker in detection of micro-invasion in verrucous carcinoma.

  • Chemotherapy Resistance in Advanced Ovarian Cancer Patients

    • Authors: Ruchika Pokhriyal, Roopa Hariprasad, Lalit Kumar, Gururao Hariprasad
      Abstract: Biomarkers in Cancer, Volume 11, Issue , January-December 2018.
      Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common gynaecologic malignancy seen in women. Majority of the patients with ovarian cancer are diagnosed at the advanced stage making prognosis poor. The standard management of advanced ovarian cancer includes tumour debulking surgery followed by chemotherapy. Various types of chemotherapeutic regimens have been used to treat advanced ovarian cancer, but the most promising and the currently used standard first-line treatment is carboplatin and paclitaxel. Despite improved clinical response and survival to this combination of chemotherapy, numerous patients either undergo relapse or succumb to the disease as a result of chemotherapy resistance. To understand this phenomenon at a cellular level, various macromolecules such as DNA, messenger RNA and proteins have been developed as biomarkers for chemotherapy response. This review comprehensively summarizes the problem that pertains to chemotherapy resistance in advanced ovarian cancer and provides a good overview of the various biomarkers that have been developed in this field.

  • Multivariate Index Assay Is Superior to CA125 and HE4 Testing in Detection
           of Ovarian Malignancy in African-American Women

    • Authors: Charles Dunton, Rowan G Bullock, Herbert Fritsche
      Abstract: Biomarkers in Cancer, Volume 11, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Objective:To review and analyze the serum values of risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm (ROMA) and multivariate index assay (MIA) in subgroups of women who underwent surgery for adnexal masses to determine sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for the detection of malignancy in different ethnic populations.Methods:Serum samples from 2 prospective trials of 1029 women in which 274 women diagnosed with malignancy were analyzed for ROMA scores and MIA results. Biomarker data were obtained from the previous prospective studies that validated the MIA test. Of these, 250 women were Caucasian (C) and 24 were African-American (AA). Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and confidence intervals for preoperative test results were calculated using DTComPair package of the R programming language. In premenopausal women, a ROMA value equal to or greater than 1.14 indicates a high risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. In premenopausal women, MIA values greater than 5.0 are associated with a greater risk of malignancy. In postmenopausal women, a ROMA value equal to or greater than 2.99 indicates a high risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. In postmenopausal women, MIA values greater than 4.4 are associated with a greater risk of malignancy.Results:Primary ovarian malignancy was diagnosed in 179 cases (167 C/12 AA) and metastatic disease to the ovary in an additional 27 cases (22 C/5 AA). Overall results are shown below.Conclusions:Our results demonstrate that ROMA in AA women with adnexal masses have lower sensitivity for the detection of malignancy than does MIA. Implementation of MIA in the evaluation of adnexal masses will increase the sensitivity of the detection of malignancy compared with ROMA, with the most marked results in AA women.

  • Following Chemotherapy: Serum Cytokine (Tumor Necrosis Factor,
           Interleukin-2, Interleukin-11), Immunoglobulin, Complement, Vascular
           Endothelial Growth Factor Levels, and the Systemic Symptoms like Capillary
           Leak Syndrome

    • Authors: Havva Keskin, Kenan Cadirci, Ahmet Demirkazik, Hakan Akbulut, Bulent Yalcin
      Abstract: Biomarkers in Cancer, Volume 11, Issue , January-December 2018.
      Several problems such as myalgia, arthralgia, fever, dyspnea, generalized edema, and pleural effusion can occur in cancer patients following the chemotherapy, especially at the first cycle of the first chemotherapy treatment. Although it is assumed that some cytokines are associated with the development of these symptoms and signs, their pathophysiology has not been discovered completely yet. They are usually mild, but they may rarely progress to the severe stage of “Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome” with a high mortality rate. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between the serum levels of interleukin-2 (IL-2), interleukin-11 (IL-11), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and these symptoms and signs. A total of 44 cancer patients who had neither heart, lung, liver, renal, or thyroid disease were recruited into this study. Their symptoms and signs were examined and questioned before the first cycle of the first chemotherapy treatment and the 24 h after this chemotherapy. All participant’s serum samples were taken, and the VEGF, TNF, IL-2, and IL-11 levels were studied. There was no association between the chemotherapeutic drugs, and the symptoms and signs such as edema, dyspnea, coughing, and flu-like symptoms. There was a significant decrease in IL-11 levels in the other treatment group compared with the group receiving paclitaxel, docetaxel, gemcitabine, and vinorelbine in the first day following chemotherapy (P = .006). However, no relation was observed between the symptoms and signs, the response to the chemotherapy, and the serum levels of VEGF, TNF, IL-2, and IL-11. These symptoms and life-threatening syndrome have been a current topic between the clinicians. Although some drugs and mediators are accused, its pathophysiology has not been discovered completely yet. In this study, we could not detect any association between the symptoms, signs, and the cytokine levels following the chemotherapy.

      The technique used for cancer monitoring is essential for effective cancer therapy. Currently, several methods such as diagnostic imaging and biochemical markers have been used for cancer monitoring, but these are invasive and show low sensitivity. A previous study reported that Caenorhabditis elegans sensitively discriminated patients with cancer from healthy subjects, based on the smell of a urine sample. However, whether C. elegans olfaction can detect the removal of cancerous tumours remains unknown. This study was conducted to examine C. elegans olfactory behaviour to urine samples collected from 78 patients before and after surgery. The diagnostic ability of the technique termed Nematode-NOSE (N-NOSE) was evaluated by receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. The ROC curve of N-NOSE was higher than those of classic tumour markers. Furthermore, we examined the change in C. elegans olfactory behaviour following exposure to preoperative and postoperative samples. The results suggest that a reduction in attraction indicates the removal of the cancerous tumour. This study may lead to the development of a noninvasive and highly sensitive tool for evaluating postoperative cancer patients.

      Abstract: Biomarkers in Cancer, Volume 11, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Introduction:Many germline associations have been reported for urinary bladder cancer (UBC) outcomes and prognostic characteristics. It is unclear whether there are overlapping genetic patterns for various prognostic endpoints. We aimed to review contemporary literature on genetic associations with UBC prognostic outcomes and to identify potential overlap in reported genes.Methods:EMBASE, MEDLINE, and PubMed databases were queried for relevant articles in English language without date restrictions. The initial search identified 1346 articles. After exclusions, 112 studies have been summarized. Cumulatively, 316 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were reported across prognostic outcomes (recurrence, progression, death) and characteristics (tumor stage, grade, size, age, risk group). There were considerable differences between studied outcomes in the context of genetic associations. The most commonly reported SNPs were located in OGG1, TP53, and MDM2. For outcomes with the highest number of reported associations (ie, recurrence and death), functional enrichment annotation yields different terms, potentially indicating separate biological mechanisms.Conclusions:Our study suggests that all UBC prognostic outcomes may have different biological origins with limited overlap. Further validation of these observations is essential to target a phenotype that could best predict patient outcome and advance current management practices.
