ABSTRACT

It is known that LINC01018 and CDK6 are associated with the occurrence, progression and recurrence of malignant tumor. Our preliminary data showed that the expression of LINC01018 was down-regulated and that of CDK6 was up-regulated, which were related with the malignancy grade. Bioinformatics suggested that E2F1 binding site exist in the CDK6 promoter region, and LINC01018 might interact with E2F1. Thus we speculate that the expression of LINC01018 in malignant tumor is decreased. The interaction between LINC01018 and E2F1 activates E2F1, promotes the transcription activation of CDK6, and affects tumor proliferation, invasion and metastasis. All these are expected to reveal the effect and mechanisms of LINC01018 in the development and regulation of malignant tumor, and provide new ideas and evidences for its treatment.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the occurrence of common symptoms in breast cancer patients in different chemotherapy periods and to analyze the relationship with the chemotherapy periods. Methods A total of four hundred and fifty?six breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy in Tangshan Cancer Hospital from August 2016 to August 2017 were investigated via common symptom questionnaire among breast cancer patients. The results of the investigation were statistically analyzed, and the relationship between chemotherapy related symptoms and chemotherapy periods was analyzed by multiple Logistic regression analysis. Results In terms of the 20 kinds of chemotherapy symptoms, among the patients whose incidence rate was >50% had 9 kinds of symptoms. Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that alopecia (95% CI=5. 820~562. 784,P=0. 001) ,skin allergy ( 95% CI=0. 002~0. 157,P<0. 001) ,cancer caused insomnia( 95% CI=1. 179~25. 638, P=0. 030) ,dry mouth ( 95% CI=0. 008~0. 470,P=0. 007) ,vaginal dryness or burning heat ( 95% CI=13. 368~647. 615 P<0. 001) ,oral ulcer ( 95%CI=0. 026~0. 654,P=0. 013) ,abnormal defecation ( 95% CI=0. 025~0. 749,P=0. 022),memory loss (95%CI=1. 065~19. 415,P=0. 041),distal phalanges numbness (95% CI=0. 004~0. 421,P=0. 007),poor appetite (95% CI=1. 189~65. 964,P=0. 033),local skin irritation /ulceration ( 95% CI=0. 003~0. 143, P<0. 001 ) were associated with the chemotherapy, the difference was statistically significant. The above symptoms can be divided into 3 symptom groups by factor analysis,and they were respectively medicine side effect symptom cluster, neuropsychiatric symptom cluster and mucocutaneous symptom cluster. Conclusion There are many symptom clusters that affect the life and rehabilitation level in patients with breast cancer during chemotherapy, and are closely related with the chemotherap cycle. Doctors should adopt a scientific model of symptom management and take measures to improve the survival state of the patients.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To establish the risk model for predicting the progression within 1 year of patients with gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms(gNEN) and to evaluate its value of prediction.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Clinical data of 127 gENE patients with histologically comfirmed sporadic gNEN from January 1999 to February 2015 in Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University(n=63) and The First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University(n=64) were collected retrospectively. Twenty-five patients without follow-up were excluded, so a total of 102 cases were enrolled in the analysis. Tumor size enlargement, lesion number increase, recurrence after resection of primary tumor and emergence of tumor metastasis were defined as tumor progression. Patients were divided into progression group (above definitions occurred within 1 year, n=56) and non-progression group (above definitions did not occur within 1 year, n=46). Logistic regression analysis was used to identify the influencing factors of progression within 1 year and the regression equation was acquired, then the probability of progression within 1 year of gNEN patients was obtained to predict the grading: grade I(: the probability of tumor progression within 1 year was < 25.0%; grade II(: this probability was from ≥25.0% to <50.0%; grade III(: this probability was from ≥50.0% to <75.0%; grade IIII(:this probability was ≥75.0%. Spearman correlation analysis was used to study the correlation between predictive grading and the occurrence of disease progression in patients with gNEN NET within 1 years. The ROC curve of different prediction methods was drawn, then the area under the curve(AUC), sensitivity and specificity were calculated and compared.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Multivariate regression analysis showed that tumor size(OR=1.048, 95%CI:1.014-1.083, P=0.005), Ki-67 index(OR=2.045, 95%CI:1.261-3.316, P=0.004), and surgical resection of the primary lesion(OR=0.074, 95%CI:0.011-0.497, P=0.070) were independent influencing factors of the progression of gNET within 1 year. The regression equation was as below: P(Y)=1/[1+ e -(-0.934+0.047a+0.715b-2.597c)]. (a: tumor size, b: Ki-67 grading, c: undergoing the surgical resection of the primary lesion). Prediction grading was based on regression equation: 28 cases (29.2%) belonged to grade I(, 9 cases (9.4%) to grade II(, 24 cases (25.0%) to grade III(, and 35 cases (36.5%) to grade IIII(. The probability of progression within 1 year of patients in grade I(, II(, III( and IIII( was 10.7% (3/28),5/9, 58.3%(14/24), and 91.4%(32/35) respectively, with significant difference (χ=41.236, P=0.000). Prediction grading was positively correlated with the occurrence of tumor progression in gNEN patients within 1 year(r=0.644, P=0.000). The AUC of prediction grading to predict the progression of gNEN within 1 year was 0.857, while the sensitivity was 85.2% and the specificity was 69.0%. DeLong method was used to compare the AUC values of prediction grading, Ki-67 grading and TNM staging. Comparison result revealed that the predictive value of prediction grading was not significantly different with that of TNM staging (P=0.303), but was better than that of Ki-67 grading (P=0.006).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Our grading standard can objectively and accurately reflect the probability of progression within one year in gNEN patients. The later the grading, the higher the probability of progression within 1 year is for gNEN patients.</p>
