  • Low folate levels are associated with reduced risk of colorectal cancer in a population with low folate status
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention. - 1055-9965. ; 23:10, s. 2136-2144
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: A diet rich in folate is associated with a reduced colorectal cancer risk, whereas the role of circulating levels is less clear. The aim of this study was to relate prediagnostic plasma folate, vitamin B12, and homocysteine concentrations to the risk of colorectal cancer.METHODS: This was a prospective case-control study of 331 cases and 662 matched controls nested within the population-based Northern Sweden Health and Disease Study. Median follow-up time from recruitment to diagnosis was 10.8 years.RESULTS: Plasma folate concentrations were positively related to colorectal cancer risk; multivariate odds ratios were 1.62 [95% confidence intervals (CI), 1.08-2.42] and 1.42 (95% CI, 0.94-2.21) for the middle and highest versus lowest tertile, respectively. In subjects with follow-up <10.8 years, a statistically significant doubled risk was observed for the middle and highest versus lowest tertile, whereas findings for longer follow-up times were null. A positive risk relationship was also observed for tumor stage III-IV but not I-II. Plasma vitamin B12 concentrations were inversely associated with rectal cancer risk. Homocysteine was not significantly related to colorectal cancer risk.CONCLUSIONS: In this population-based, nested case-control study, low plasma folate concentrations were associated with a reduced colorectal cancer risk. This protective role was mainly observed in subjects with higher tumor stage or shorter follow-up time between recruitment and diagnosis. Low circulating folate status may protect against colorectal cancer or suppress progression of preneoplastic or neoplastic lesions.IMPACT: These findings may have relevance for the ongoing debate about mandatory folic acid fortification of flour.

  • One-carbon metabolite ratios as functional B-vitamin markers and in relation to colorectal cancer risk
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer. - John Wiley & Sons. - 0020-7136. ; 144:5, s. 947-956
  • Tidskriftsartikel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Background: One-carbon metabolism biomarker are easily measured in plasma, but analyzing them one at a time in relation to disease does not take into account the interdependence of the many factors involved. The relative dynamics of major one-carbon metabolism branches can be assessed by relating the functional B-vitamin marker total homocysteine (tHcy) to transsulfuration (total cysteine) and methylation (creatinine) outputs.Objective: We validated the ratios of tHcy to total cysteine (Hcy:Cys), tHcy to creatinine (Hcy:Cre), and tHcy to cysteine to creatinine (Hcy:Cys:Cre) as functional markers of B-vitamin status. We also calculated the associations of these ratios to colorectal cancer (CRC) risk.Design: The relative contribution of potential confounders to the variance of the ratio-based B-vitamin markers was calculated by linear regression in a nested case-control study of 613 CRC cases and 1211 matched controls. Total B-vitamin status was represented by a summary score comprising Z-standardized plasma concentrations of folate, cobalamin, betaine, pyridoxal 5´-phosphate, and riboflavin. Associations with CRC risk were estimated using conditional logistic regression.Results: The ratio-based B-vitamin markers all outperformed tHcy as markers of total B-vitamin status, in both CRC cases and controls. Associations with CRC risk were similar for the ratio-based B-vitamin markers and total B-vitamin status (approximately 25% lower risk for high versus low B-vitamin status).Conclusions: Ratio-based B-vitamin markers were good predictors of total B-vitamin status, and displayed similar associations with CRC risk. Since tHcy and creatinine are routinely clinically analyzed, Hcy:Cre could be easily implemented in clinical practice to aid interpretation of tHcy results.

  • Vitamin B-6 and colorectal cancer risk : a prospective population-based study using 3 distinct plasma markers of vitamin B-6 status
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. - 0002-9165. ; 105:4, s. 897-904
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Higher plasma concentrations of the vitamin B-6 marker pyridoxal 5#-phosphate (PLP) have been associated with reduced colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. Inflammatory processes, including vitamin B-6 catabolism, could explain such findings. Objective: We investigated 3 biomarkers of vitamin B-6 status in relation to CRC risk. Design: This was a prospective case-control study of 613 CRC cases and 1190 matched controls nested within the Northern Sweden Health and Disease Study (n = 114,679). Participants were followed from 1985 to 2009, and the median follow-up from baseline to CRC diagnosis was 8.2 y. PLP, pyridoxal, pyridoxic acid (PA), 3-hydroxykynurenine, and xanthurenic acids (XAs) were measured in plasma with the use of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. We calculated relative and absolute risks of CRC for PLP and the ratios 3-hydroxykynurenine: XA (HK: XA), an inverse marker of functional vitamin B-6 status, and PA:(PLP + pyridoxal) (PAr), a marker of inflammation and oxidative stress and an inverse marker of vitamin B-6 status. Results: Plasma PLP concentrations were associated with a reduced CRC risk for the third compared with the first quartile and for PLP sufficiency compared with deficiency [OR: 0.60 (95% CI: 0.44, 0.81) and OR: 0.55 (95% CI: 0.37, 0.81), respectively]. HK: XA and PAr were both associated with increased CRC risk [OR: 1.48 (95% CI: 1.08, 2.02) and OR: 1.50 (95% CI: 1.10, 2.04), respectively] for the fourth compared with the first quartile. For HK: XA and PAr, the findings were mainly observed in study participants with,10.5 y of follow-up between sampling and diagnosis. Conclusions: Vitamin B-6 deficiency as measured by plasma PLP is associated with a clear increase in CRC risk. Furthermore, our analyses of novel markers of functional vitamin B-6 status and vitamin B-6-associated oxidative stress and inflammation suggest a role in tumor progression rather than initiation.

  • Intake of dietary fiber, especially from cereal foods, is associated with lower incidence of colon cancer in the HELGA cohort
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer. - Geneve : International union against cancer. - 0020-7136. ; 131:2, s. 469-478

    • The role of dietary fiber on the risk of colon and rectal cancer has been investigated in numerous studies, but findings have been inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to examine associations between intake of dietary fiber and risk of incident colon (including distal and proximal colon) and rectal cancer in the prospective Scandinavian HELGA cohort and to determine if fiber source (vegetables, fruits, potatoes, cereals) impacted the association. We included 1,168 incident cases (691 colon, 477 rectal cancer), diagnosed during a median of 11.3 years, among 108,081 cohort members. Sex-specific incidence rate ratios (IRRs) of colon and rectal cancer were related to intake of total or specific fiber source using Cox proportional hazards models. For men, an inverse association was observed between intake of total fiber and the risk of colon cancer per an incremental increase of 10 g day(-1) , IRR (95% CI): 0.74 (0.64-0.86). Intake of cereal fiber per 2 g day(-1) was associated with an IRR of 0.94 (0.91-0.98), which was also seen for intake of cereal fiber from foods with high fiber content (≥5 g per 100 g product), where the IRR per 2 g day(-1) was 0.94 (0.90-0.98). In women, intake of cereal fiber per 2 g day(-1) was also associated with lower risk of colon cancer, 0.97 (0.93-1.00). No clear associations were seen for rectal cancer. Our data indicate a protective role of total and cereal fiber intake, particularly from cereal foods with high fiber content, in the prevention of colon cancer.

  • Diet in the aetiology of ulcerative colitis: A European prospective cohort study
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Digestion. - Karger. - 1421-9867. ; 77:1, s. 57-64
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background/Aims: The causes of ulcerative colitis are unknown, although it is plausible that dietary factors are involved. Case-control studies of diet and ulcerative colitis are subject to recall biases. The aim of this study was to examine the prospective relationship between the intake of nutrients and the development of ulcerative colitis in a cohort study. Methods: The study population was 260,686 men and women aged 20-80 years, participating in a large European prospective cohort study (EPIC). Participants were residents in the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Germany or Italy. Information on diet was supplied and the subjects were followed up for the development of ulcerative colitis. Each incident case was matched with four controls and dietary variables were divided into quartiles. Results: A total of 139 subjects with incident ulcerative colitis were identified. No dietary associations were detected, apart from a marginally significant positive association with an increasing percentage intake of energy from total polyunsaturated fatty acids (trend across quartiles OR = 1.19 (95% CI = 0.99-1.43) p = 0.07). Conclusions: No associations between ulcerative colitis and diet were detected, apart from a possible increased risk with a higher total polyunsaturated fatty acid intake. A biological mechanism exists in that polyunsaturated fatty acids are metabolised to pro-inflammatory mediators.

    • Cancer-associated fibroblasts expressing fibroblast activation protein (FAP) have been implicated in the invasive behavior of colorectal cancer. In this study, we use FAP expression as a marker of fibroblast activation and analyze the effect of activated fibroblasts on colorectal cancer migration and invasion in experimental cell studies. We also investigated the expression pattern of FAP in cancer-associated fibroblasts during transformation from benign to malignant colorectal tumors. In immunohistochemical analyses, FAP was expressed in fibroblasts in all colorectal cancer samples examined, whereas all normal colon, hyperplastic polyps, or adenoma samples were negative. In in vitro studies, conditioned medium from colon cancer cells, but not adenoma cells, activated fibroblasts by inducing FAP expression. These activated fibroblasts increased the migration and invasion of colon cancer cells in Boyden chamber experiments and in a three-dimensional cell culture model. We identify fibroblast growth factor 1/fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGF1/FGFR-3) signaling as mediators leading to the increased migration and invasion. Activated fibroblasts increase their expression of FGF1, and by adding a fibroblast growth factor receptor inhibitor, as well as an FGF1-neutralizing antibody, we reduced the migration of colon cancer cells. Our findings provide evidence of a possible molecular mechanism involved in the cross talk between cancer cells and fibroblasts leading to cancer cell invasion.

  • c-Met expression in primary tumors and their corresponding distant metastases
  • 2009

    • c-Met is a receptor tyrosine kinase that has beenimplicated in the pathogenesis and growth of a wide variety ofhuman malignancies, including CRC, but its role in metastasisis largely unknown. We compared c-Met expression in primaryhuman colorectal carcinomas and distant metastases from thesame patients. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissuesamples from 69 colorectal cancer patients were obtained. Theprotein expression of c-Met was evaluated immunohistochemicallyusing a commercial antibody. The difference inexpression between primary tumors and their correspondingdistant metastases was analyzed using the Wilcoxon signedranktest. c-Met expression was statistically significantlylower in the distant metastases compared to their correspondingprimary tumors (p<0.001), whereas no difference was foundbetween lymph node metastases and their correspondingprimary tumors (p=0.957). The degree of c-Met expressionwas not related to clinicopathological characteristics such astumor grade and Dukes' stage at the time of primary tumordiagnosis, or to the location of the distant metastases. Wedemonstrated that c-Met expression is often reduced in distantmetastases compared to their corresponding primary colorectaltumors. Additional studies of c-Met activation and signaltransduction will increase our knowledge about the role ofc-Met in colorectal cancer metastasis.

  • High SMAD4 levels appear in MSI and hypermethylated colon cancers, and indicate a better prognosis
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer. - Geneve : International union against cancer. - 0020-7136. ; 131, s. 779-788
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common causes of cancer related deaths in western countries. CRC are commonly divided in cancers showing microsatellite stability (MSS) or microsatellite instability (MSI). A more novel classification is dependent on promoter hypermethylation of CpG islands (the CpG island methylator phenotype, CIMP), where cancers show high, low or negative methylation status. SMAD4, located on chromosome 18q, has been thoroughly investigated during the last years. Loss of SMAD4 expression has been reported to correlate with poor CRC patient prognosis. In this study we analyze the impact of SMAD4 expression on prognosis in relation to MSI screening status and CIMP status. 479 paraffin-embedded specimens of CRC were examined for nuclear SMAD4 expression using immunohistochemistry. The tumors were scored loss (-), moderate (+) and high (++) expressing tumors. Loss of SMAD4 correlated significantly with decreased survival in all colon cancer patients. High SMAD4 expression, on the other hand, was significantly associated with increased survival, especially in colon cancer patients which has undergone potential curative surgery. In addition, in MSI tumors and CIMP-high tumors, high SMAD4 expression was significantly related to increase in survival, while loss of SMAD4 resulted in a significantly poorer prognosis. SMAD4 expression was not correlated to prognosis in rectal cancer cases. We conclude, loss of SMAD4 indicates a poor prognosis in colon cancer patients. The novel findings that high SMAD4 expression predicts a better prognosis suggests that SMAD4 immunohistochemistry could constitute a prognostic marker in combination with CIMP and MSI screening status.
