Fludarabine-PET in a murine model of multiple myeloma

1 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

4 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

134 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

173 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]

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

185 views | Apr 11 2019

Hubbard JM et al. showed 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]

Stress-induced dynamic regulation of mitochondrial STAT3 and its association with cyclophilin D reduce mitochondrial ROS production

Meier JA et al. outlined a role for mitochondrially localized STAT3 in sensing and responding to external stimuli. [Read the Full Post]

microRNA-200a silencing protects neural stem cells against cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury

444 views | Sep 09 2018

Ma J et al. indicated miR-200a silencing protects NSCs from OGD/R-induced injury, possibly via regulating the STATs/c-Myc and MAPK/c-Myc signalings. [Read the Full Post]

JAK/STAT signaling pathway-mediated immune response in silkworm (Bombyx mori) challenged by Beauveria bassiana

479 views | Sep 09 2018

Geng T et al. suggested that BmCTL5 might be one pattern recognition receptors for JAK/STAT signaling pathway in silkworm. These findings yield insights for better understand the molecular mechanisms of JAK/STAT signaling pathway in antifungal immune response in silkworm. [Read the Full Post]

Niclosamide inhibition of STAT3 synergizes with erlotinib in human colon cancer

0 views | Sep 05 2018

Shi L et al. suggested that erlotinib and niclosamide combination provides an effective therapeutic approach to improving the prognosis of colon cancer. [Read the Full Post]

MicroRNA-17 regulates autophagy to promote hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury via suppression of signal transductions and activation of transcription-3 expression

453 views | Sep 02 2018

Li S et al. showed that high levels of miR-17 expression can function to up-regulate autophagy to aggravate hepatic IRI by suppressing Stat3 expression. Liver Transplantation 22 1697-1709 2016 AASLD. [Read the Full Post]
