Activation of telomerase and its association with G1-phase of the cell cycle during UVB-induced skin tumorigenesis in SKH-1 hairless mouse. (1/10127)

Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein enzyme that adds hexanucleotide repeats TTAGGG to the ends of chromosomes. Telomerase activation is known to play a crucial role in cell-immortalization and carcinogenesis. Telomerase is shown to have a correlation with cell cycle progression, which is controlled by the regulation of cyclins, cyclin dependent kinases (cdks) and cyclin dependent kinase inhibitors (cdkis). Abnormal expression of these regulatory molecules may cause alterations in cell cycle with uncontrolled cell growth, a universal feature of neoplasia. Skin cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in humans and the solar UV radiation is its major cause. Here, we investigated modulation in telomerase activity and protein expression of cell cycle regulatory molecules during the development of UVB-induced tumors in SKH-1 hairless mice. The mice were exposed to 180 mjoules/cm2 UVB radiation, thrice weekly for 24 weeks. The animals were sacrificed at 4 week intervals and the studies were performed in epidermis. Telomerase activity was barely detectable in the epidermis of non-irradiated mouse. UVB exposure resulted in a progressive increase in telomerase activity starting from the 4th week of exposure. The increased telomerase activity either persisted or further increased with the increased exposure. In papillomas and carcinomas the enzyme activity was comparable and was 45-fold higher than in the epidermis of control mice. Western blot analysis showed an upregulation in the protein expression of cyclin D1 and cyclin E and their regulatory subunits cdk4 and cdk2 during the course of UVB exposure and in papillomas and carcinomas. The protein expression of cdk6 and ckis viz. p16/Ink4A, p21/Waf1 and p27/Kip1 did not show any significant change in UVB exposed skin, but significant upregulation was observed both in papillomas and carcinomas. The results suggest that telomerase activation may be involved in UVB-induced tumorigenesis in mouse skin and that increased telomerase activity may be associated with G1 phase of the cell cycle.  (+info)

L-[1-11C]-tyrosine PET to evaluate response to hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer. (2/10127)

PET with L-[1-11C]-tyrosine (TYR) was investigated in patients undergoing hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion (HILP) with recombinant tumor necrosis factor alpha (rTNF-alpha) and melphalan for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer of the lower limb. METHODS: Seventeen patients (5 women, 12 men; age range 24-75 y; mean age 52 y) were studied. TYR PET studies were performed before HILP and 2 and 8 wk afterwards. The protein synthesis rates (PSRs) in nanomoles per milliliter per minute were calculated. After final PET studies, tumors were resected and pathologically examined. Patients with pathologically complete responses (pCR) showed no viable tumors after treatment. Those with pathologically partial responses (pPR) showed various amounts of viable tumors in the resected tumor specimens. RESULTS: Six patients (35%) showed a pCR and 11 patients (65%) showed a pPR. All tumors were depicted as hot spots on PET studies before HILP. The PSR in the pCR group at 2 and 8 wk after perfusion had decreased significantly (P < 0.05) in comparison to the PSR before HILP. A significant difference was found in PSR between the pCR and pPR groups at 2 and at 8 wk (P < 0.05). Median PSR in nonviable tumor tissue was 0.62 and ranged from 0.22 to 0.91. With a threshold PSR of 0.91, sensitivity and specificity of TYR PET were 82% and 100%, respectively. The predictive value of a PSR > 0.91 for having viable tumor after HILP was 100%, whereas the predictive value of a PSR < or = 0.91 for having nonviable tumor tissue after HILP was 75%. The 2 patients in the pPR groups with a PSR < 0.91 showed microscopic islets of tumor cells surrounded by extensive necrosis on pathological examination. CONCLUSION: Based on the calculated PSR after HILP, TYR PET gave a good indication of the pathological outcome. Inflammatory tissue after treatment did not interfere with viable tumor on the images, suggesting that it may be worthwhile to pursue TYR PET in other therapy evaluation settings.  (+info)

Frequent nuclear/cytoplasmic localization of beta-catenin without exon 3 mutations in malignant melanoma. (3/10127)

Beta-Catenin has a critical role in E-cadherin-mediated cell-cell adhesion, and it also functions as a downstream signaling molecule in the wnt pathway. Mutations in the putative glycogen synthase kinase 3beta phosphorylation sites near the beta-catenin amino terminus have been found in some cancers and cancer cell lines. The mutations render beta-catenin resistant to regulation by a complex containing the glycogen synthase kinase 3beta, adenomatous polyposis coli, and axin proteins. As a result, beta-catenin accumulates in the cytosol and nucleus and activates T-cell factor/ lymphoid enhancing factor transcription factors. Previously, 6 of 27 melanoma cell lines were found to have beta-catenin exon 3 mutations affecting the N-terminal phosphorylation sites (Rubinfeld B, Robbins P, Elgamil M, Albert I, Porfiri E, Polakis P: Stabilization of beta-catenin by genetic defects in melanoma cell lines. Science 1997, 275:1790-1792). To assess the role of beta-catenin defects in primary melanomas, we undertook immunohistochemical and DNA sequencing studies in 65 melanoma specimens. Nuclear and/or cytoplasmic localization of beta-catenin, a potential indicator of wnt pathway activation, was seen focally within roughly one third of the tumors, though a clonal somatic mutation in beta-catenin was found in only one case (codon 45 Ser-->Pro). Our findings demonstrate that beta-catenin mutations are rare in primary melanoma, in contrast to the situation in melanoma cell lines. Nonetheless, activation of beta-catenin, as indicated by its nuclear and/or cytoplasmic localization, appears to be frequent in melanoma, and in some cases, it may reflect focal and transient activation of the wnt pathway within the tumor.  (+info)

Interleukin-10-treated human dendritic cells induce a melanoma-antigen-specific anergy in CD8(+) T cells resulting in a failure to lyse tumor cells. (4/10127)

Dendritic cells (DC) are critically involved in the initiation of primary immune processes, including tumor rejection. In our study, we investigated the effect of interleukin-10 (IL-10)-treated human DC on the properties of CD8(+) T cells that are known to be essential for the destruction of tumor cells. We show that IL-10-pretreatment of DC not only reduces their allostimulatory capacity, but also induces a state of alloantigen-specific anergy in both primed and naive (CD45RA+) CD8(+) T cells. To investigate the influence of IL-10-treated DC on melanoma-associated antigen-specific T cells, we generated a tyrosinase-specific CD8(+) T-cell line by several rounds of stimulation with the specific antigen. After coculture with IL-10-treated DC, restimulation of the T-cell line with untreated, antigen-pulsed DC demonstrated peptide-specific anergy in the tyrosinase-specific T cells. Addition of IL-2 to the anergic T cells reversed the state of both alloantigen- or peptide-specific anergy. In contrast to optimally stimulated CD8(+) T cells, anergic tyrosinase-specific CD8(+) T cells, after coculture with peptide-pulsed IL-10-treated DC, failed to lyse an HLA-A2-positive and tyrosinase-expressing melanoma cell line. Thus, our data demonstrate that IL-10-treated DC induce an antigen-specific anergy in cytotoxic CD8(+) T cells, a process that might be a mechanism of tumors to inhibit immune surveillance by converting DC into tolerogenic antigen-presenting cells.  (+info)

MDM2 overexpression generates a skin phenotype in both wild type and p53 null mice. (6/10127)

The MDM2 proto-oncogene is overexpressed in human tumours and regulates the activities of the tumour suppressors p53 and pRB. We created mice that overexpress MDM2 under the control of the CMV promoter. These mice did not display an increased tumour incidence, but rather a specific skin phenotype, characterized by desquamation and hyperkeratosis. Transgenic MDM2 was found to be overexpressed in the epidermis, a tissue that normally expresses high levels of MDM2. The phenotype appeared during the first week after birth and then lessened with age, closely following the level of expression of the transgene. MDM2 overexpression was associated with an increase in proliferation in the basal layer, thickening of the epidermis, altered expression of the differentiation markers cytokeratin CK14, CK10 and CK1, and a decrease in the size and the number of granules that contain products of differentiation. Transgenic mice on a p53 null background displayed similar although not identical changes, showing that the effects of MDM2 are to a certain degree p53 independent. The skin is a major site of MDM2 expression in mice, raising the possibility that MDM2 overexpression perturbs the normal pattern of MDM2 expression and inhibits differentiation of the epidermis.  (+info)

Tumor suppression in human skin carcinoma cells by chromosome 15 transfer or thrombospondin-1 overexpression through halted tumor vascularization. (7/10127)

The development of skin carcinomas presently is believed to be correlated with mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor and ras gene as well as with the loss of chromosome 9. We now demonstrate that, in addition, loss of chromosome 15 may be a relevant genetic defect. Reintroduction of an extra copy of chromosome 15, but not chromosome 4, into the human skin carcinoma SCL-I cells, lacking one copy of each chromosome, resulted in tumor suppression after s.c. injection in mice. Transfection with thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1), mapped to 15q15, induced the same tumor suppression without affecting cell proliferation in vitro or in vivo. Halted tumors remained as small cysts encapsulated by surrounding stroma and blood vessels. These cysts were characterized by increased TSP-1 matrix deposition at the tumor/stroma border and a complete lack of tumor vascularization. Coinjection of TSP-1 antisense oligonucleotides drastically reduced TSP-1 expression and almost completely abolished matrix deposition at the tumor/stroma border. As a consequence, the tumor phenotype reverted to a well vascularized, progressively expanding, solid carcinoma indistinguishable from that induced by the untransfected SCL-I cells. Thus, these data strongly suggest TSP-1 as a potential tumor suppressor on chromosome 15. The data further propose an unexpected mechanism of TSP-1-mediated tumor suppression. Instead of interfering with angiogenesis in general, in this system TSP-1 acts as a matrix barrier at the tumor/stroma border, which, by halting tumor vascularization, prevents tumor cell invasion and, thus, tumor expansion.  (+info)

Glucocorticoid mediation of dietary energy restriction inhibition of mouse skin carcinogenesis. (8/10127)

Dietary energy restriction (DER) inhibits carcinogenesis in numerous animal models. DER is a potent and reproducible inhibitor of two-stage mouse skin carcinogenesis when administered during the promotion phase. Previous research demonstrated that adrenalectomy abolished cancer prevention by food restriction. Several lines of evidence suggest that glucocorticoid elevation in the DER mouse mediates the prevention of skin cancer. Our research tested the hypothesis that elevated glucocorticoid hormone activates the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and that this activated receptor interferes with the activator protein-1 (AP-1) transcription factor. Induction of AP-1 by the phorbol ester tumor promoter 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) is essential to tumor promotion. We have been unable to demonstrate elevated activated GR in the epidermis of the DER mouse, perhaps because only indirect strategies have been possible with the use of epidermis from DER mice. However, DER blocked the induction of AP-1 and c-jun, a constituent protein of AP-1, in the epidermis of mice. Current studies are focused on the inhibition of signaling down the MAP-1/Raf-1 kinase pathway that leads to induction of constituent proteins of AP-1, including c-Jun. Although several pathways lead to the induction of AP-1 transcriptional activity, the MAP-1/Raf-1 pathway can be activated by protein kinase C (PKC); previous studies from our laboratory demonstrated an inhibition of PKC activity and a reduction in selected isoforms of PKC in the epidermis of the DER mouse. Our current working hypothesis is that elevated glucocorticoid hormone in the DER mouse reduces the amount and activity of PKC isoforms important in the activation of MAP-1/Raf-1 kinase pathway. We propose that this results in attenuation in the induction of the AP-1 transcription factor by TPA. Because AP-1 induction by TPA is obligatory for mouse skin promotion, we propose this as an essential component of the mechanism of DER prevention of mouse skin carcinogenesis.  (+info)

Raman spectroscopy has emerged as a promising tool for real-time clinical diagnosis of malignant skin tumors offering a number of potential advantages: it is non-intrusive, it requires no sample preparation, and it features high chemical specificity with minimal water interference. However, in vivo tissue evaluation and accurate histopathological classification remain a challenging task for the successful transition from laboratory prototypes to clinical devices. In the literature, there are numerous reports on the applications of Raman spectroscopy to biomedical research and cancer diagnostics. Nevertheless, cases where real-time, portable instrumentations have been employed for the in vivo evaluation of skin lesions are scarce, despite their advantages in use as medical devices in the clinical setting. This paper reviews the advances in real-time Raman spectroscopy for the in vivo characterization of common skin lesions. The translational momentum of Raman spectroscopy towards the clinical practice

Solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is recognized as a major cause of non-melanoma skin cancer in man. Skin cancer occurs most frequently in the most heavily exposed areas and correlates with degree of outdoor exposure. Describing the relationship of exposure (dose) to risk (skin cancer) requires the availability of a biological hazard function or action spectrum for photocarcinogenesis. This standard proposes the adoption of an action spectrum (weighting function) derived from experimental laboratory data and modified to estimate the non-melanoma tumour response in human skin. The experimental data are sufficient for estimating effectiveness down to about 250 nm, but experimental data are not sufficient for specifying effectiveness above 400 nm ...

June 17, 2016 - Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs have been linked to an increased risk of melanoma (skin cancer) in yet another study, but researchers say it is likely due to sun exposure.. Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra were associated with a 14% increased risk of skin cancer in a study published by PLoS Medicine.. The conclusions were based on data from 150,000 men on the medications, compared to 560,000 men who did not. The authors did not have individual-level data on sun exposure, but they said the study strongly suggests sun exposure is responsible.. In other words, men who can afford erectile dysfunction medications spend more time outdoors and take more sunny vacations. The biggest risk-factor for melanoma is sun exposure.. Other recent studies have drawn similar conclusions. In 2014, JAMA published a study linking Viagra with an 84% increased risk of melanoma. Last year, another study published in JAMA found a 21% increased risk.. Pfizer is facing dozens of lawsuits from ...

Benign skin lesions are usually harmless and do not need to be removed. However, you may be advised to have a skin lesion removed if it interferes with your everyday life or it becomes cancerous.
BACKGROUND: Early accurate detection of all skin cancer types is important to guide appropriate management and improve morbidity and survival. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is usually a localised skin cancer but with potential to infiltrate and damage surrounding tissue, whereas cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and melanoma are higher risk skin cancers with the potential to metastasise and ultimately lead to death. When used in conjunction with clinical or dermoscopic suspicion of malignancy, or both, reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) may help to identify cancers eligible for non-surgical treatment without the need for a diagnostic biopsy, particularly in people with suspected BCC. Any potential benefit must be balanced against the risk of any misdiagnoses. OBJECTIVES: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of RCM for the detection of BCC, cSCC, or any skin cancer in adults with any suspicious lesion and lesions that are difficult to diagnose (equivocal); and to compare its accuracy with that of
Skin cancer, the abnormal growth of skin cells, most often develops on skin exposed to the sun. But this common form of cancer also can occur on areas of your skin not ordinarily exposed to sunlight.. There are three major types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.. Symptoms. Skin cancer develops primarily on areas of sun-exposed skin, including the scalp, face, lips, ears, neck, chest, arms and hands, and on the legs in women. But it also can form on areas that rarely see the light of day, including your palms, beneath your fingernails or toenails, and your genital area.. Melanoma can develop anywhere on your body in otherwise normal skin or in an existing mole that becomes cancerous. Melanoma most often appears on the face or trunk of men who are affected. In women, this type of cancer most often develops on the lower legs. It can affect people of any skin tone. In people with darker skin tones, melanoma tends to occur on the palms or soles, or under the ...

Melanoma is a malignant skin tumor. The disease occupies a special place among skin neoplasms, as it has a high tendency to metastasizing (spreading of tumor cells) and low effectiveness of therapy, especially at the advanced stages. About 35% of melanomas appear on the site of pigmented nevi (birthmarks), the rest - on the unchanged skin. Risk factors include increased insolation and presence of hereditary predisposition.. Malignant formation arises from epidermal melanocytes, which synthesize melanin (pigment), therefore, the tumor is colored. With the germination of the basal plate of the skin, the formation quickly spreads to various parts of the body through the lymphatic vessels. Melanomas develops mainly on the skin, but can also spread to the mucous membranes of the oral cavity, genital area, rectal area, and conjunctiva.. In 2016, about 76,380 new cases of melanoma were recorded in the United States, which caused about 10,130 deaths. Lifetime risk ranges from 1% to 2%. Over the past 8 ...

Facial skin metastases from colorectal cancer are extremely rare and appear several years after resection of the primary tumour. They are an important finding, often being the first sign of metastasis from a previously treated colon cancer. We describe a case of a 69 year old patient with cutaneous metastasis to the chin from a previously treated adenocarcinoma of the colon. The patient presented with dyspnoea, pleuritic pain and loss of weight. A chest x-ray revealed a right upper lobe mass of the lung which on subsequent surgical exploration proved to be metastatic from colorectal adenocarcinoma resected three years ago. During the postoperative course, a nodule was noted on the chin and excision biopsy revealed it was also a metastasis from the initial colorectal cancer. Palliative chemoradiotherapy was administered and the patient survived 8 months. High index of suspicion is necessary for the early detection of facial cutaneous metastases from colorectal cancer. The aim is to start treatment as
Melanoma is the more aggressive of the two cancer types and develops in the melanin-producing cells of the skin. These cells are located in the lowest layer of the epidermis. By dint of its origins Melanoma is more likely to spread to other parts of the body. Melanoma will typically show up in changes in the appearance of a mole or the pigmented area of the skin. The appearance of an irregularly shaped lesion, with portions that appear red blue or white should prompt one to seek medical advice. Melanoma will also show up in areas that are not typically exposed to the sun. Dark lesions on the fingertips or toes, palms and soles of the feet may indicate the presence of Melanoma Skin Cancer.. Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (less aggressive than Melanoma), on the other hand, develops in the upper layers of the skin and is usually cured when identified and treated early. Vigilance is however necessary throughout ones life to catch any signs of its recurrence. You are advised to know your skin shades and ...

Melanoma gets the headlines, and for good reason, with a mortality rate at around 10% it is far higher than all other forms of skin cancer, sitting at less than 1% overall.. However, this focus on mortality rates has made people think that only melanoma is serious and that other forms of skin cancer are nothing to worry about.. So, you might be surprised to hear that as many Australians die from non-melanoma skin cancers each year as they do from melanoma.. What are non-melanoma skin cancers? Non-melanoma skin cancer includes basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Typically, BCC account for 70% and SCC for 29%, with rare forms of non-melanoma skin cancers making up the remaining 1%.. PWC predicts that around 1,700 Australians will die from non-melanoma skin cancer in 2020 (this compares to 1,400-2,000 melanoma related deaths in Australia per annum). Sadly, that translates to around 4 people dying each day in Australia due to non-melanoma skin cancer. You might be ...

Nonmelanoma skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide (melanoma skin cancer is much more rare - though increasing at a very fast rate). Recent studies suggest that nonmelanoma skin cancer is becoming much more common among women, and the increase is especially dramatic among young women. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, a person born in 1930 faces a 1-in-500 chance of developing nonmelanoma skin cancer in his or her lifetime, whereas a person born after 1994 faces a 1-in-7 chance.. This increase has occurred because more people are overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. People are living longer. People of this generation have often been exposed to the sun more than their parents because they tend to have more opportunity for leisure activities in the sun. The thinning of the earths ozone layer (caused by pollution and chemicals) also contributes to the increased occurrence of nonmelanoma skin cancer.. The two most common types of nonmelanoma skin cancer are basal ...
The Incidence of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer in the United States. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Did you know it is currently estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime? Nearly 10,000 U.S. citizens are diagnosed every single day.. In 2012 alone, it was estimated that over 5 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer, including both basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, were treated in at least 3 million Americans.. Skin cancer is on the rise as well. Between 1976 and 2010, incidences of basal cell carcinoma increased by 145%. Squamous cell carcinoma increased by over 260% in the same time period.. The Latest Treatment Option for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers. To combat this large increase in the incidence of non-melanoma skin cancers, Sensus Healthcare developed the SRT-100™, a system that uses precise, calibrated doses of Superficial Radiation Therapy to destroy cancer cell DNA, effectively disrupting their ...
About 7,000 atomic bomb (A-bomb) survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki who participate in the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) Adult Health Study (AHS) were examined to define the relationship between skin neoplasms and exposure to ionizing radiation. Careful clinical inspection of the skin was undertaken to detect not only skin cancer but precancerous lesions such as senile keratosis. Five cases of basal cell carcinoma, five cases of senile keratosis and one case of Bowens disease were confirmed histologically among 5955 A-bomb survivors for whom Dosimetry System 1986 (DS86) dose estimates are available. The relationship between the combined prevalence of skin cancer and precancerous lesions and DS86 dose was examined together with other factors that might affect skin neoplasms including occupational exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, age, sex and city. The prevalence of basal cell carcinoma and senile keratosis increased as the DS86 dose increased. The prevalence of skin cancer ...
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma from the head and neck typically metastasize to the lymph nodes of the neck and parotid glands. When a primary is not identified, they are difficult to distinguish from metastases of mucosal origin and primary salivary gland squamous cell carcinoma. UV radiation causes a mutation pattern that predominantly features cytosine to thymine transitions at dipyrimidine sites and has been associated with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. In this study, we used whole genome sequencing data from 15 cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma metastases and show that a UV mutation signature is pervasive across the cohort and distinct from mucosal squamous cell carcinoma. The mutational burden was exceptionally high and concentrated in some regions of the genome, especially insulator elements (mean 162 mutations/megabase). We therefore evaluated the likely impact of UV-induced mutations on the dipyrimidine-rich binding site of the main human insulator protein, CCCTC-binding factor, and the

N2 - Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (cSCC) is the second most common type of non-melanoma skin cancer in white-skinned populations. cSCC is associated with sun exposure and aging, which is concomitant with an accumulation of senescent cells in the skin. The involvement of senescent cells in carcinogenesis has been highlighted in several cancer types and an interaction between cSCC cells and senescent cells is proposed, but still little explored. Tumor-associated effects are mostly attributed to the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). Here, we compared two in vitro models of senescence, namely replicative senescence and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Efficient palliation of haemorrhaging malignant melanoma skin metastases by electrochemotherapy. AU - Gehl, J.. AU - Geertsen, P. F.. PY - 2000/12/1. Y1 - 2000/12/1. N2 - Electric pulses can cause transient permeabilization of cell membranes (electroporation) and this can be utilized to increase the uptake of chemotherapy (electrochemotherapy). Preclinical studies have shown that in vivo electroporation causes transient shut down of blood flow both in normal and, in particular, malignant tissues. We report the successful palliation of a malignant melanoma patient with bleeding skin metastases using electrochemotherapy. In an on-going study of combined electrochemotherapy and low dose interleukin-2, one patient with bleeding skin metastases was included. Nine skin metastases, of which seven were ulcerated, were treated. After intratumoral bleomycin injection, needle electrodes with two arrays 4 mm apart were inserted into the tumours. Eight square wave electric pulses each 99 μs ...
Press Release issued Feb 10, 2015: Non-melanoma skin cancers develop in the outermost layer of skin, known as epidermis. It is caused by increased exposure of genetic mutations, UV rays and ozone layer depletion. Non-melanoma skin cancer is mainly classified into two types. They are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma is one of the most common types of skin cancers. It accounts about 70% of all skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma starts underneath of the epidermis. Basal cell carcinoma usually appears as a red or pink lump. It usually develops on ears, face and neck. Squamous cell carcinoma accounts 20% of skin cancer. It starts on the upper side of epidermis. Squamous cell carcinoma appears as a red lump which develops into tumors. This type of cancer usually appears on that parts of the body which are directly exposed to the sun. It includes hands, face, ears, lips and legs.

Plasma cells within the infiltrate of primary cutaneous malignant melanoma have been reported as a valuable criterion for the prediction of lymph node metastases. In order to evaluate plasma cells, their prognostic significance and their relationship
BACKGROUND: Systemic immunosuppression is a significant risk factor for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). p53 is mutated and overexpressed in up to 90% of cutaneous SCC lesions. Despite considerable evidence that the immune response is important in the control of cutaneous SCC, there are no studies documenting potential tumour-associated antigens. OBJECTIVES: We tested the hypothesis that individuals with cutaneous SCC have functional circulating CD8+ T cells specific for p53. METHODS: Interferon-gamma immunosorbent assays were used to screen peripheral blood mononuclear cells for reactivity to six p53-derived HLA-A*0201-restricted epitopes from HLA-A*0201-positive patients and controls. RESULTS: We observed significantly elevated frequencies of p53-specific CD8+ T cells in seven of 26 individuals with cutaneous SCC and in one of 10 controls. The degree of lymphocytic infiltrate significantly correlated with the frequency of CD8+ T cells specific for p53 epitopes, but not with control epitopes.

There are few reported cases of lymphoma associated with fingolimod treatment for multiple sclerosis, but rates are higher than expected in the general population. The authors hope to promote awareness of the potential risk of this medication so that more diligent disease surveillance can be performed by both prescribing practitioners of fingolimod and their patients who receive it.. AB - The authors report a case of a 69-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis treated with fingolimod for duration of over one year who subsequently developed cutaneous ...
Melanoma skin cancer (as opposed to non-melanoma skin cancer) is less common, but more serious than other types of skin cancer. Early detection is key to successfully treating melanoma skin cancers. Turley Hansen represents a number of 9/11 responders and survivors with melanoma skin cancer.. Melanoma cancer is sometimes called malignant melanoma and cutaneous melanoma. Most melanoma tumors are brown or black, but some melanomas can appear pink, tan, or even white. Melanomas can develop anywhere on the skin, but they are more likely to start on the chest and back in men and on the legs in women. The neck and face are other common sites. Melanoma cancer can also appear in the eye.. Based on the stage of the cancer, treatment options may include:. ...

Skin cancer has been on the rise at an astonishing rate in the United States of America over the past 5 decades.. Specifically, these statistics relate to nonmelanoma skin cancers such as Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma among other less common skin cancers. Melanoma skin cancers are not a part of these statistics as they are a reportable condition. For all skin cancers that dont get reported, estimates have been made based on billing records in most studies.. Because it is more difficult to estimate the total number of US nonmelanoma skin cancers, studies are done less frequently. Weve compiled the last four major studies based on a scientific journal search on pubmed.gov.. The first publication evaluated skin cancer rates in 1978.. Currently between 400,000 and 500,000 individuals develop new basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas of the skin each year in the United States. (1978). - Scotto, J., T. R. Fears, and J. F.

Abstract: Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) occurs commonly and can metastasize. Identification of specific molecular aberrations and mechanisms underlying the development and progression of cutaneous SCC may lead to better prognostic and therapeutic approaches and more effective chemoprevention strategies. To identify genetic changes associated with early stages of cutaneous SCC development, we analyzed a series of 40 archived skin tissues ranging from normal skin to invasive SCC. Using high-resolution array-based comparative genomic hybridization, we identified deletions of a region on chromosome 10q harboring the INPP5A gene in 24% of examined SCC tumors. Subsequent validation by immunohistochemistry on an independent sample set of 71 SCC tissues showed reduced INPP5A protein levels in 72% of primary SCC tumors. Decrease in INPP5A protein levels seems to be an early event in SCC development, as it also is observed in 9 of 26 (35%) examined actinic keratoses, the earliest stage in SCC ...
The new study augments a BMJ study published in July 2012 that showed that 3,438 new cases of melanoma diagnosed each year in Western Europe are related to sunbed use.. As a result, some experts are now calling for Europe to introduce a tan tax on indoor tanning salons.. In the new study, researchers led by Eleni Linos, MD, of the University of California San Francisco, estimated that indoor tanning may account for more than 170,000 cases of non-melanoma skin cancers in the US alone. They analysed the results of 12 studies involving 9,328 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer.. Ever using indoor tanning was associated with a 67% higher risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma and a 29% higher risk of developing basal cell carcinoma, compared with never using it, the study showed. Given the extent of indoor tanning use in the United States, the researchers estimated that such tanning accounts for 3.7% of cases of basal cell carcinoma and 8.2% of cases of squalors cell carcinoma. The EU needs to ...

Melanoma is the leading cause of death among skin cancer types, so its understandable that it has become a major focus of the healthcare community. Non-melanoma skin cancers account for over 90 percent of all skin cancers in the United States, and while they are usually more easily managed, they can pose a serious problem if left unchecked.. The distinction between melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer is important to discuss, as prognosis and management are different for each. Melanoma typically requires targeted therapy or immunotherapy, whereas surgical resection (a procedure to remove part of an organ or gland) and chemotherapy are more common approaches for non-melanoma skin cancer. Newer, targeted therapy approaches have also emerged for non-melanoma skin cancers.. What follows is an overview of the two most common types of non-melanoma skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.. Basal Cell Carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma originates from cells called keratinocytes. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The XPC poly-AT polymorphism in non-melanoma skin cancer. AU - Nelson, Heather H.. AU - Christensen, Brock. AU - Karagas, Margaret R.. PY - 2005/5/26. Y1 - 2005/5/26. N2 - Signature UV-DNA lesions, cyclobutane dimers and 6-4 photoproducts, are repaired via the nucleotide excision repair pathway. NER may be subdivided into transcription-coupled repair and global genome repair, and the XPC protein is specific to this latter repair pathway recognizing helix distorting lesions and initiating their repair. Inactivating XPC mutations are associated with xeroderma pigmentosa and an extremely high risk of skin cancer. A common polymorphism in intron 9 of the XPC gene has been associated with both reduced repair of UV-DNA damage (using the host-cell reactivation assay) and increased risk of squamous cell head and neck cancer. Here, we have tested the hypothesis that the XPC PAT+ polymorphism is associated with non-melanoma skin cancer using a population-based case control study of skin ...
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is normally a malignancy of epidermal keratinocytes thats in charge of ~20% of annual skin cancer-associated mortalities. A-431 cells. These total outcomes indicated that suppression of RhoBTB1 could be involved with cSCC tumorigenesis, which was suffering from miR-31 directly. In conclusion, todays study provides proof that miR-31 functions as an oncogene through immediate repression of RhoTBT1 manifestation in cSCC tumor, recommending a potential software of miR-31 in prognosis prediction and its own therapeutic software in cSCC. (11) proven that miR-365 was overexpressed in both cells and medical specimens of cSCC (11). The decreased expression from the miR-193b/365a cluster noticed during tumor development suggests a tumor suppressor part in cSCC (12). MiR-199a inhibits cSCC cell proliferation and migration by regulating Compact disc44-Ezrin signaling (13). Accumulating research show that miR-31 manifestation can be correlated with metastasis; ...
Age spots and skin melanoma are two concerns for men and women of all ages. While the skin changes may be nothing more than a nuisance, some skin cell changes require further treatment. Skin cancers can spread to other parts of the body, causing damage and ill health when not treated. Though many skin conditions are harmless, knowing the difference between what is harmless and what is not will save a patient from having to learn the hard way. The differences between age spots and skin melanoma may be subtle, but these differences are important to know.
Risk factors for non-melanoma skin cancer include sun and ultraviolet radiation and having a fair complexion. Learn about non-melanoma skin cancer risk.
If tumours arise in special locations such as around the eyes, mouth or in the genital area, patients and physicians are challenged by the need for complete removal of the tumour with safety margins and high demands on function and aesthetic aspects. Treatment should be performed by specialized physicians including ophthalmologists, head and neck surgeons, surgical, medical and radiation oncologists. The first-line treatment for most cutaneous malignancies is surgical excision; however, in several situations, such as well-differentiated cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCC) in the periocular or anal region, radiotherapy is a very reasonable and sometimes treatment of first choice, especially in patients with advanced age. In periocular SCC, radiotherapy with superficial x-ray combined with eye shielding, while in anal SCC, radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy is recommended. However, after failure of local treatment options including surgery and radiotherapy, systemic medications are ...
BACKGROUND: Cutaneous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the commonest cancer worldwide. BCC is locally invasive and the surrounding stromal microenvironment is pivotal for tumourigenesis. Cancer associated fibroblasts (CAFs) in the microenvironment are essential for tumour growth in a variety of neoplasms but their role in BCC is poorly understood.. METHODS: Material included facial BCC and control skin from the peritumoural area and from the buttocks. With next-generation sequencing (NGS) we compared mRNA expression between BCC and peritumoural skin. qRT-PCR, immunohistochemical and immunofluorescent staining were performed to validate the NGS results and to investigate CAF-related cyto-and chemokines..

Skin cancer has been on the rise at an astonishing rate in the United States of America over the past 5 decades.. Specifically, these statistics relate to nonmelanoma skin cancers such as Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma among other less common skin cancers. Melanoma skin cancers are not a part of these statistics as they are a reportable condition. For all skin cancers that dont get reported, estimates have been made based on billing records in most studies.. Because it is more difficult to estimate the total number of US nonmelanoma skin cancers, studies are done less frequently. Weve compiled the last four major studies based on a scientific journal search on pubmed.gov.. The first publication evaluated skin cancer rates in 1978.. Currently between 400,000 and 500,000 individuals develop new basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas of the skin each year in the United States. (1978). - Scotto, J., T. R. Fears, and J. F.

Basal cell carcinoma is a slow growing non-melanoma skin cancer. It is thought to be caused by over exposure to the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun. It can be highly disfiguring if allowed to grow, but almost never spreads beyond the original tumor site. Only in rare cases can basal cell carcinoma spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. This disease should be treated promptly due to its ability to destroy tissue in the areas that it infiltrates.. What do basal cell carcinomas look like?. Basal cell carcinomas are abnormal, uncontrolled growths or lesions that arise in the skins basal cells, which line the deepest layer of the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. Basal cell carcinomas often look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars.. What are the consequences of basal cell carcinomas?. Basal cell carcinomas will continue to grow locally, bleed, and destroy tissue unless treated. Serious problems can arise if the skin ...

BACKGROUND Lung transplant recipients (LTR) are at increased risk for squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (SCC), but risk factors (RF) are incompletely understood. OBJECTIVE To assess associations between exposure to certain medications and viral infections, and subsequent SCC development. METHODS Retrospective study examining incidence and potential RF for SCC in LTR transplanted from 1992 to 2010 followed up at one centre. Cumulative incidence and Cox proportional hazards regression models were used to evaluate RF in the first year post-transplant for SCC formation during the follow-up. RESULTS In 205 analysed LTR, 46 patients were diagnosed with SCC during a median follow-up of 4.9 years. The cumulative incidences of first SCC were 16.7% and 34.1%, for 5 and 10 years post-transplantation respectively. Multivariable analysis identified CMV replication (HR 7.69, 95% CI 2.93-20.2, P , 0.001) and moxifloxacin exposure (HR 2.35, 95% CI 1.15-4.81, P = 0.020) during the first year ...
In this study, the increased risk was seen for lung cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer, Dr. Alberg says. For prostate cancer, the trend was in the direction of increased risk, but the association was weaker and not statistically significant, he says.. Dr. Alberg believes the increased risk may be due to a weakened ability to repair DNA damage to cells. People who have suboptimal ability to repair DNA damage that the sun can cause are far more likely to get nonmelanoma skin cancer. We are hypothesizing that that might also be the link to why there is a greater increased cancer risk in general, he says.. For the study, Dr. Albergs team looked at the risk of developing cancer among 769 people with a history of nonmelanoma skin cancer. The researchers compared these people to 18,405 people with no history of skin cancer.. Over 16 years of follow-up, the researchers found that the incidence of cancers was 293.5 per 10,000 person-years among people with a history of skin cancer, compared to ...
Cemiplimab an investigational human antibody targeting PD-1 (programmed cell death protein 1), is yet another checkpoint inhibitor that was evaluated in 82 patients with advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC). Early trial results suggest that cemiplimab may represent a viable treatment option for individuals diagnosed with CSCC.. About Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). CSCC is the second most common type of skin cancer in the United States. Although CSCC has a good prognosis when caught early, it can prove especially difficult to treat when it progresses to advanced stages. CSCC is the second deadliest skin cancer after melanoma and is responsible for the most deaths among non-melanoma skin cancer patients. For patients with CSCC that cannot be cured by surgery or radiation, there are currently no FDA-approved treatment options, and advanced CSCC is responsible for 3,900 to 8,800 deaths per year in the U.S.. The EMPOWER-CSCC 1 clinical study was initiated in 2016 and remains ...
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer among skin cancers. The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) has increased more than 600% worldwide since the 1940s. Carcinogenesis is a multi-step process involving multiple genetic alterations. The connection between cell cycle proliferation and cancer resulting in deregulated cellular proliferation leads to cancer. Cancer has been associated with disturbances in cell cycle regulation. Recent studies have shown that p16, CDK6 and CCND1 mRNA genes and protein expression are involved in the tumorgenesis of skin cancer. These genes play a role in cell cycle proliferation. In this study, we assessed the expression of a cyclin, a cyclin dependent kinase, and a cyclin kinase inhibitor in skin BCC tissue. Reverse Transcription in situ polymerase chain reaction (RT in situ PCR) and immunohistochemistry (IHC) were used to detect the expression of p16, CDK6 and CCND1 mRNA genes through them of protein ...
