Findings reveal a new role for p63 -- a sister gene of the master tumor suppressor p53 -- in cancer and stem cell biology A constellation of different stem cell populations within our skin help it to cope with normal wear and tear. By constantly proliferating, the stem cells allow skin to replenish itself, allowing each cell to be replaced by a new one about once a month. But the normal cycle of division and death within one or more of these stem cell types can sometimes be derailed by...

Experts report in the British Journal of Dermatology that sap from the common garden weed petty spurge appears to treat non-melanoma skin cancers. However, they tell patients not to "try it at home" since the treatment is still in an experimental state. Their study involved 36 patients with non-melanoma skin cancer lesions. Non-melanoma lesions are very common and account for a third of all cancers detected in the U.K. They include basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression by mainly binding to the 3"²-UTR of target mRNAs, leading to mRNA degradation or translation inhibition. Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the most lethal malignancies in China. Many studies have reported the miRNA expression profiles in Barrett's esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma. However, the pathobiological significance of aberrant miRNA expression in human ESCC has not been well documented. A research article to be...

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a common type of skin cancer. In this paper, Leif Ellisen and colleagues at Mass General Hospital investigated the p53-related proteins p63 and p73 in SCC cells, and discovered a feedback loop between p63, microRNAs (miRs), and p73. In a model of SCC, they found that inhibiting one of these miRs decreased tumor growth and made the cells more sensitive to chemotherapy, highlighting a new potential therapeutic target. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a common...

A new study suggests that the presence of tumor cells in the circulating blood of patients with squamous cell cancer of the head and neck may predict disease recurrence and reduced survival. An increased number of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) also correlates with a worse outcome. Those are the early findings from an ongoing, prospective study of the prognostic importance of CTCs by a team of researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital...
