  • Vitamin E analogues as inducers of apoptosis : Structure-function relation
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 88:12, s. 1948-1955
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Recent results show that a-tocopheryl succinate (a-TOS) is a proapoptotic agent with antineoplastic activity. As modifications of the vitamin E (VE) molecule may affect its apoptogenic activity, we tested a number of newly synthesised VE analogues using malignant cell lines. Analogues of a-TOS with lower number of methyl substitutions on the aromatic ring were less active than a-TOS. Replacement of the succinyl group with a maleyl group greatly enhanced the activity, while it was lower for the glutaryl esters. Methylation of the free succinyl carboxyl group on a-TOS and d-TOS completely prevented the apoptogenic activity of the parent compounds. Both Trolox and its succinylated derivative were inactive. a-tocotrienol (a-T3 H) failed to induce apoptosis, while ?-T3 H was apoptogenic, and more so when succinylated. Shortening the aliphatic side chain of ?-T3 by one isoprenyl unit increased its activity. Neither phytyl nor oleyl succinate caused apoptosis. These findings show that modifications of different functional moieties of the VE molecule can enhance apoptogenic activity. It is hoped that these observations will lead to the synthesis of analogues with even higher apoptogenic and, consequently, antineoplastic efficacy.</p>

  • Limited neuropeptide Y precursor processing in unfavourable metastatic neuroblastoma tumours
  • 2000
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 83:2, s. 171-176
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is found at high concentrations in neural crest-derived tumours and has been implicated as a regulatory peptide in tumour growth and differentiation. Neuroblastomas, ganglioneuromas and phaeochromocytomas with significant concentrations of NPY-like immunoreactivity were investigated for different molecular forms of NPY and for significance of proNPY processing. Gel-permeation chromatography identified intact NPY (1-36) in all tumours, whereas proNPY (69 amino acids) was detected only in control adrenal tissue and malignant neuroblastomas. Purification of NPY-like immunoreactivity in tumour extracts and structural characterization revealed that both NPY (1-36) and the truncated form NPY (3-36) was present. The degree of processing of proNPY to NPY in tumour tissue was lower in advanced neuroblastomas with regional or metastatic spread (stage 3 and 4) (n = 6), (41%, 12-100%, median, range), compared to the less aggressive stage 1, 2 and 4S tumours (n = 12), (93%, 69-100%), (P = 0.012). ProNPY processing of less than 50% was correlated with poor clinical outcome (P = 0.004). MYCN oncogene amplification was also correlated to a low degree of proNPY processing (P = 0.025). In summary, a low degree of proNPY processing was correlated to clinical advanced stage and poor outcome in neuroblastomas. ProNPY/NPY processing generated molecular forms of NPY with known differences in NPY-receptor selectivity, implicating a potential for in vivo modulation of NPY-like effects in tumour tissue.

  • Reproductive history and risk of colorectal adenocarcinoma in parous women a Nordic population-based case-control study
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 115:11, s. 1416-1420
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Background: Data are conflicting regarding the role of endogenous sex hormones in colorectal carcinogenesis. In this large population-based study, we pooled data from birth and cancer registries in four Nordic countries, to evaluate the risk of colorectal adenocarcinoma in relation to women's reproductive history. Methods: We conducted a population-based case-control study among women registered in Nordic birth registries. The study included colorectal adenocarcinoma cases diagnosed in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden during 1967-2013 and up to 10 matched controls per case, in total 22 185 cases and 220 246 controls. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were derived from conditional logistic regression models. We had limited information available on possible confounders. Results: We found no evidence for associations between colorectal adenocarcinoma and parity, age at first and last birth, and time since first and last birth. The risk estimates were also close to unity for specific cancer subsites (proximal and distal colon and rectum). As well, when the analyses were stratified on menopausal status, parity, and mother's year of birth, no indication of associations was found. Conclusions: In this large, Nordic population-based study, no evidence for associations was found between women's reproductive history and colorectal adenocarcinoma in parous women.</p>

  • Metabolic response patterns in brain microdialysis fluids and serum during interstitial cisplatin treatment of high-grade glioma
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - Nature Publishing Group. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 122:2, s. 221-232
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>BACKGROUND: High-grade gliomas are associated with poor prognosis. Tumour heterogeneity and invasiveness create challenges for effective treatment and use of systemically administrated drugs. Furthermore, lack of functional predictive response-assays based on drug efficacy complicates evaluation of early treatment responses.</p><p>METHODS: We used microdialysis to deliver cisplatin into the tumour and to monitor levels of metabolic compounds present in the tumour and non-malignant brain tissue adjacent to tumour, before and during treatment. In parallel, we collected serum samples and used multivariate statistics to analyse the metabolic effects.</p><p>RESULTS: We found distinct metabolic patterns in the extracellular fluids from tumour compared to non-malignant brain tissue, including high concentrations of a wide range of amino acids, amino acid derivatives and reduced levels of monosaccharides and purine nucleosides. We found that locoregional cisplatin delivery had a strong metabolic effect at the tumour site, resulting in substantial release of glutamic acid, phosphate, and spermidine and a reduction of cysteine levels. In addition, patients with long-time survival displayed different treatment response patterns in both tumour and serum. Longer survival was associated with low tumour levels of lactic acid, glyceric acid, ketoses, creatinine and cysteine. Patients with longer survival displayed lower serum levels of ketohexoses, fatty acid methyl esters, glycerol-3-phosphate and alpha-tocopherol, while elevated phosphate levels were seen in both tumour and serum during treatment.</p><p>CONCLUSION: We highlight distinct metabolic patterns associated with high-grade tumour metabolism, and responses to cytotoxic cisplatin treatment.</p>

  • Virome characterisation from Guthrie cards in children who later developed acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 115:8, s. 1008-1014
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p><strong>BACKGROUND:</strong> Some childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemias (ALL) can be traced back to a prenatal origin, where a virus infection could be involved in the first pre-leukaemic clone development. The DNA virome of 95 children who later developed ALL was characterised from neonatal blood spots (NBS) using unbiased next-generation sequencing (NGS) and compared with the virome of 95 non-ALL controls.</p><p><strong>METHODS:</strong> DNA was individually extracted from the ALL-patients and controls, pooled, randomly amplified and sequenced using the Illumina MiSeq Sequencing System.</p><p><strong>RESULTS:</strong> Virus-like sequences identified in both groups mapped to human endogenous retroviruses and propionibacterium phage, considered a part of the normal microbial flora. Potential pathogens human herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6) and parvovirus B19 were also identified, but only few samples in both ALL and controls tested positive by PCR follow-up.</p><p><strong>CONCLUSIONS:</strong> Unbiased NGS was employed to search for DNA from potential infectious agents in neonatal samples of children who later developed ALL. Although several viral candidates were identified in the NBS samples, further investigation by PCR suggested that these viruses did not have a major role in ALL development.</p>

  • Downregulation of miRNA-424 : a sign of field cancerisation in clinically normal tongue adjacent to squamous cell carcinoma
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - Nature Publishing Group. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 112:11, s. 1760-1765
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Background: The overall survival for patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue is low and the search for early diagnostic and prognostic markers is thus essential. MicroRNAs have been suggested as potential prognostic and diagnostic candidates in squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck in general. Methods: On the basis of the known differences between sub-sites within the oral cavity, we investigated the expression and role of microRNA-424 in squamous cell carcinoma arising in tongue. MicroRNA levels were measured by qRT-PCR in both tissue and plasma samples. Results: Levels of microRNA-424 were upregulated in tongue squamous cell carcinoma, but not in tumours originating from gingiva or floor of the mouth. Interestingly, microRNA-424 was downregulated in clinically normal tongue tissue next to tumour compared with completely healthy tongue, indicating that microRNA-424 could be a marker of field cancerisation in this tumour type. However, expression of microRNA-424 in a tongue-derived epithelial cell line revealed no significant changes in the expression profile of proteins and genes. Conclusions: Our patient data show that microRNA-424 alterations are a marker of field cancerisation specific for tongue tumourigenesis, which also could have a role in development of tongue squamous cell carcinoma.</p>

  • Membranous expression of podocalyxin-like protein is an independent factor of poor prognosis in urothelial bladder cancer
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 108:11, s. 2321-2328
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Background: Membranous expression of the anti-adhesive glycoprotein podocalyxin-like (PODXL) has previously been found to correlate with poor prognosis in several major cancer forms. Here we examined the prognostic impact of PODXL expression in urothelial bladder cancer. Methods: Immunohistochemical PODXL expression was examined in tissue microarrays with tumours from two independent cohorts of patients with urothelial bladder cancer: n = 100 (Cohort I) and n = 343 (Cohort II). The impact of PODXL expression on disease-specific survival (DSS; Cohort II), 5-year overall survival (OS; both cohorts) and 2-year progression-free survival (PFS; Cohort II) was assessed. Results: Membranous PODXL expression was significantly associated with more advanced tumour (T) stage and high-grade tumours in both cohorts, and a significantly reduced 5-year OS (unadjusted HR = 2.25 in Cohort I and 3.10 in Cohort II, adjusted HR = 2.05 in Cohort I and 2.18 in Cohort II) and DSS (unadjusted HR = 4.36, adjusted HR = 2.70). In patients with Ta and T1 tumours, membranous PODXL expression was an independent predictor of a reduced 2-year PFS (unadjusted HR = 6.19, adjusted HR = 4.60) and DSS (unadjusted HR = 8.34, adjusted HR = 7.16). Conclusion: Membranous PODXL expression is an independent risk factor for progressive disease and death in patients with urothelial bladder cancer.</p>

  • Prognostic significance of p53 overexpression in primary breast cancer : a novel luminometric immunoassay applicable on steroid receptor cytosols.
  • 1995
  • Ingår i: British Journal of Cancer. - 0007-0920 .- 1532-1827. ; 71:5, s. 1013-1017
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>A novel quantitative luminometric immunoassay (LIA) has been developed for the measurement of wild-type and mutant p53 protein in extracts from breast tumour tissue. The LIA was found to yield reliable estimates of p53 expression in cytosol samples routinely prepared for steroid receptor analysis as compared with results obtained with immunohistochemical analysis. The LIA was evaluated on 205 primary breast tumour cytosols prepared for steroid receptor analysis and stored frozen at -80 degrees C for 6-8 years, p53 protein being detected in 65% of the samples (range 0.01-23 ng mg-1 protein). Using an arbitrary cut-off value of 0.15 ng mg-1 protein, 30% of the tumours were classified as manifesting p53 overexpression. Significant and independent correlations were found to exist between p53 overexpression and shorter disease-free (P &lt; 0.001) and overall survival (P = 0.039) at a median duration of follow-up of 50 months. p53 overexpression was related to low oestrogen receptor content and high proliferation rate (S-phase fraction). No relationship was found to tumour size or the presence of lymph node metastasis. Three tumours possessed an extremely high p53 content (&gt; 10 ng mg-1 protein), all of which were of medullary or high-grade ductal type, oestrogen and progesterone receptor negative, DNA non-diploid, had S-phase fractions of &gt; 22% and recurred within 1-2 years. In summary, a new sensitive and quantitative LIA suitable for routine analysis of p53 protein in steroid receptor cytosol preparations from breast tumours has been developed to confirm the prognostic importance of p53 protein accumulation in human breast cancer.</p>
