Highlights in Oncology

Immunophenotype of small intestinal adenocarcinoma predicts survival

As reported in the European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology & Reproductive Biology, levels of the adipokine, apelin, are decreased in women with PCOS (n=45) compared to healthy controls. Apelin levels are positively correlated with BMI, insulin levels, triglycerides levels, free testosterone levels, the Ferriman-Gallwey score, and the HOMA index. Apelin levels are negatively correlated with HDL levels.

VPAC1 overexpression associated with colon cancer aggression

As reported in Tumor Biology, VPAC1 expression is increased in poorly differentiated compared to well-differentiated colon cancer. VPAC1 expression is also increased in the blood vessels and macrophages adjacent to colon cancer tissues compared to healthy tissues. The overexpression of VPAC1 is related to EGFR overexpression.

Loss of PTEN expression portends poor prognosis in IPMNs of the pancreas

As reported in Clinical Cancer Research, loss of PTEN in intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas (n=36) is associated with invasiveness and poor survival.
