Due to high potency and low toxicity, desflurane has been widely used during surgery. Recent evidence that the use of desflurane was associated with colorectal cancer (CRC) tumor metastasis and poor prognosis raising concerns about the safety of desflurane. However, the mechanism was uncovered. CRC cells were exposed to desflurane, the changes in morphology and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related genes were evaluated. Transwell assay was used to study the migration and invasion effec...

: The prolonged use of drugs such as beta-blockers, acetylsalicylic acid, omeprazole, statins, oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy might have some role in melanocytic nevi development and be ultimately linked to melanoma risk. Aims of the study were to evaluate a possible association between the above-mentioned drugs and features such as number and atypia of melanocytic nevi in long-term users. We retrospectively looked at pharmacological, clinical and dermoscopic records of 1321...

The adenoma detection rate (ADR) is the primary quality indicator for colonoscopies. The polyp detection rate (PDR) is available from administrative data and does not depend on histology verification. The correlation between PDR and ADR and the ADR/PDR conversion factor in preventive colonoscopies were evaluated. In the prospective study, asymptomatic individuals aged 45-75 years with preventive colonoscopy in 2012-2016 were included. Spearman's correlation coefficient was used to assess PDR/ADR...
We aimed to estimate colorectal cancer risk in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) using metformin. Patients with colorectal cancer and diabetes from 2000 to 2012 were identified form Lithuanian Cancer Registry and the National Health Insurance Fund database. Standardized incidence ratios

To understand the impact of demographic, behavioral and contextual factors on cervical cancer, we examined the profile of women classified according to cervical cancer staging [precursor lesions cervical intraephitelial neoplasia (CIN2/CIN3), early- and advanced-stage cancer]. Patients were identifi

: The aim of the present study was to explore the correlations between single nucleotide polymorphisms in LASS2 gene 3'-untranslated regions and bladder cancer risk in Chinese population. We first performed PCR and sequence for LASS2-3'-UTR in 105 bladder cancer patients and 100 control subjects. Next, multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to determine the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms frequency and susceptibility of bladder cancer, and clinical features in 10...

: The molecular chaperone heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is highly expressed in tumor tissue according to many studies. However, there is no large-scale study investigating the expression of Hsp90 in pan-cancer so far, and the molecular mechanisms leading to aberrant Hsp90 expression are also largely unknown. To address these questions, we performed an in silico analysis of Hsp90 expression using mRNA sequencing data from The Cancer Genome Atlas study. The results were further validated using ind...
In 2019, the WHO has announced that it will intensify efforts to eliminate cervical cancer worldwide by increasing coverage of the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine. Finding reasons for low HPV vaccine coverage and looking for solutions to address the problem should be the priorities for public hea
: Lynch syndrome is caused by germline mutations of genes affecting the mismatch repair proteins MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 or PMS2. Identification of Lynch syndrome patients using germline molecular testing in colorectal cancer (CRC) affected patients and in their healthy relatives is a cost-effective model of cancer prevention. Several studies demonstrate that universal tumor testing using immunohistochemical (IHC) analysis of CRC samples is the most efficient approach to identifying patients affected b...
