Expression and Prognostic Value of Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase in Pancreatic Cancer.
 

Author(s): Tao Zhang, Xiang-Long Tan, Yong Xu, Zi-Zheng Wang, Chao-Hui Xiao, Rong Liu

Journal: Chin. Med. J.. 2017 Mar;130(6):710-716.

 

Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), an enzyme for tryptophan metabolism through the kynurenine pathway, exhibits an immunosuppressive effect and induces immune tolerance in tumor cells. The effects of IDO on pancreatic cancer are poorly understood. This study aimed to investigate the ...

Genomic deletion of malic enzyme 2 confers collateral lethality in pancreatic cancer.
 

Author(s): Prasenjit Dey, Joelle Baddour, Florian Muller, Chia Chin Wu, Huamin Wang, Wen-Ting Liao, Zangdao Lan, Alina Chen, Tony Gutschner, Yaan Kang, Jason Fleming, Nikunj Satani, Di Zhao, Abhinav Achreja, Lifeng Yang, Jiyoon Lee, Edward Chang, Giannicola Genovese, Andrea Viale, Haoqiang Ying, Giulio Draetta, Anirban Maitra, Y Alan Wang, Deepak Nagrath, Ronald A DePinho

Journal: Nature. 2017 02;542(7639):119-123.

 

The genome of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) frequently contains deletions of tumour suppressor gene loci, most notably SMAD4, which is homozygously deleted in nearly one-third of cases. As loss of neighbouring housekeeping genes can confer collateral lethality, we sought ...

Toll Like Receptor 2, 4, and 9 Signaling Promotes Autoregulative Tumor Cell Growth and VEGF/PDGF Expression in Human Pancreatic Cancer.
 

Author(s): Tanja Grimmig, Romana Moench, Jennifer Kreckel, Stephanie Haack, Felix Rueckert, Roberta Rehder, Sudipta Tripathi, Carmen Ribas, Anil Chandraker, Christoph T Germer, Martin Gasser, Ana Maria Waaga-Gasser

Journal:

 

Toll like receptor (TLR) signaling has been suggested to play an important role in the inflammatory microenvironment of solid tumors and through this inflammation-mediated tumor growth. Here, we studied the role of tumor cells in their process of self-maintaining TLR expression independent ...

Mitochondrial uncoupling protein 2 and pancreatic cancer: a new potential target therapy.
 

Author(s): Massimo Donadelli, Ilaria Dando, Elisa Dalla Pozza, Marta Palmieri

Journal: World J. Gastroenterol.. 2015 Mar;21(11):3232-8.

 

Overall 5-years survival of pancreatic cancer patients is nearly 5%, making this cancer type one of the most lethal neoplasia. Furthermore, the incidence rate of pancreatic cancer has a growing trend that determines a constant increase in the number of deceases caused by this pathology. ...

Therapeutic targeting of pancreatic cancer utilizing sigma-2 ligands.
 

Author(s): John R Hornick, Dirk Spitzer, Peter Goedegebuure, Robert H Mach, William G Hawkins

Journal: Surgery. 2012 Sep;152(3 Suppl 1):S152-6.

 

One major barrier in the development of pancreas cancer therapeutics is the selective delivery of the drugs to their cellular targets. We have previously developed several sigma-2 ligands and reported the discovery of a component of the receptor for these ligands. Several sigma-2 ...
