To inhibit TrxR1 is to inactivate STAT3-Inhibition of TrxR1 enzymatic function by STAT3 small molecule inhibitors

12 views | Oct 29 2020

Sander Busker et al. suggested that targeting of TrxR1 might be a common feature for many small molecules that inhibited cellular STAT3 function. [Read the Full Post]

A study of human leukocyte antigen-haploidentical hematopoietic stem cells transplantation combined with allogenic mesenchymal stem cell infusion for treatment of severe aplastic anemia in pediatric and adolescent patients

37 views | Sep 29 2020

Li Ding et al. suggested that cotransplantation of HLA-haploidentical HSC and allogenic mesenchymal stem cell might provide an effective and safe treatment for children and adolescents with SAA who lacked matched donors. [Read the Full Post]

Xanthatin alleviates airway inflammation in asthmatic mice by regulating the STAT3/NF-κB signaling pathway

26 views | Sep 28 2020

Jingxia Chang et al. concluded that Xanthatin attenuated airway inflammation in asthmatic mice through blocking the STAT3/NFκB signaling pathway, indicating the potential of Xanthatin as a useful therapeutic agent for asthma. [Read the Full Post]

Napabucasin: An Update on the First-in-Class Cancer Stemness Inhibitor

0 views | Jan 05 2020

Hubbard JM and Grothey A indicated that napabucasin may prove useful in targeting cancer stem cells, with the potential to suppress metastasis and prevent relapse in patients with varying cancer types. [Read the Full Post]

Fludarabine-PET in a murine model of multiple myeloma

306 views | Dec 08 2019

Hovhannisyan N et al. suggested that [18F]fludarabine-PET might represent an alternative and perhaps more specific modality for MM imaging when compared to [18F]FDG. Nevertheless, more investigations are required to extend this conclusion to humans. [Read the Full Post]

Pre-metastatic niche triggers SDF-1/CXCR4 axis and promotes organ colonisation by hepatocellular circulating tumour cells via downregulation of Prrx1

200 views | Dec 04 2019

Tang Y et al. demonstrated that decreased expression of Prrx1 stimulates SDF-1/CXCR4 signalling and contributes to organ colonisation with blood CTCs in HCC. STAT3 inhibition and specific blockade of CXCR4 have clinical potential as therapeutics for eliminating organ metastasis in advanced HCC. [Read the Full Post]

Regulation of Skeletal Muscle DRP-1 and FIS-1 Protein Expression by IL-6 Signaling

342 views | Jun 03 2019

Fix DK et al. elevated IL-6 can directly induce DRP-1 and FIS-1 expression through gp130 signaling in cultured myotubes and skeletal muscle. Furthermore, ERK 1/2 signaling is necessary for the IL-6 induction of DRP-1 and FIS-1 expression in myotubes. [Read the Full Post]

Bendamustine plus rituximab versus fludarabine plus rituximab for patients with relapsed indolent and mantle-cell lymphomas: a multicentre, randomised, open-label, non-inferiority phase 3 trial

508 views | May 21 2019

Rummel M et al. indicated that in combination with rituximab, bendamustine was more effective than fludarabine, suggesting that bendamustine plus rituximab may be the preferred treatment option for patients with relapsed indolent and mantle-cell lymphomas. [Read the Full Post]
