Biomarkers for small cell lung cancer: neuroendocrine, epithelial and circulating tumour cells

, : Biomarkers for small cell lung cancer: neuroendocrine, epithelial and circulating tumour cells. Lung Cancer 76(3): 263-268

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is characterised by an aggressive clinical course with invariable resistance to chemotherapy despite initially high response rates. There has been little improvement in outcome over the past few decades, with no breakthrough yet in targeted therapies. Recent preclinical data and studies of circulating tumour cells (CTCs) highlight distinct cellular heterogeneity within SCLC. Better understanding of how these phenotypes contribute to metastasis and tumour progression might pave the way for development of more successful targeted therapies. Here we review these studies, their implications for future research and for the incorporation of biomarkers reflecting neuroendocrine, epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes in clinical studies.

Botulin type C was found to be highly palatable to the pika O. curzoniae. The coefficient of bait intake was 0.75, and it continued to be palatable in re-feeding trials (coefficient of bait intake of 1.03).

The inhibition of FLT-3 activity is an interesting target for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The serendipitous identification of FLT-3 inhibitors from a CK1/γ-secretase programme provided compounds with dual inhibitory activity. W...

Apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 (APE1) is a multifunctional enzyme that participates in base-excision repair of oxidative DNA damage and in the redox activation of transcription factors. We tested the hypothesis that APE1 upregulation protect...
