Highlights in Oncology

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.

Cisplatin monotherapy effective in pediatric high-risk hepatoblastoma

As reported in the Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, treatment of children with high-risk hepatoblastoma (n=14) with cisplatin monotherapy was as effective as cisplatin + doxorubicin combination therapy, but with less toxicity. The complete resection rate was 78.6%, the event-free survival rate was 81.8%, and the OS rate was 100%.

YKL-40 predicts poor prognosis for bladder cancer

As reported in Urologic Oncology, the gene expression and serum level of YKL-40 are higher in patients with bladder cancer than healthy controls. Serum YKL-40 levels predict poor prognosis in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (HR=1.75).
