  • The Roles of Ferroptosis-related Long Non-coding RNAs in Urologic Cancers

    Wenchao Xie, Jie Gu ... Yimin Xie

    Ferroptosis is a type of programmed cell death that has been recent topic of interest in cancer therapy. Growing evidence indicates that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in ferroptosis and associated with the incidence and progression of cancer. However, the relationship between lncRNA and ferroptosis in urologic cancers has not been fully elucidated. In this review, we summarize ferropt...

    Karthikesh Omkaram, Ramprasad Reddy A ... Gousia Begum S

    This is the first time a large endovesical leiomyoma of the urinary bladder has been reported in India. A 44-year-old woman had painless gross haematuria, increased urine frequency, an incomplete emptying feeling, and left loin discomfort. Imaging and cystoscopy revealed a 6 x 5 cm projecting endovesical tumour emerging from the bladder's base near the left vesico-ureteric junction. Transurethral ...

  • Novel Therapeutic Strategies for BCG-unresponsive Non-muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

    Peng Zhang, Yi Ding

    Development of therapeutic strategies for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) that failed intravesical Bacillus Calmette - Guerin (BCG) therapy remains an urgent priority for clinicians. Currently, radical cystectomy is the recommended standard of care treatment options for these patients. Intravesical chemotherapy using gemcitabine and docetaxel are regarded as the most effective treatment...

  • Targeting CTLA-4 in Cancer: Biological Insights with a Focus on Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Juan Wu, Ya-fei Ren ... Dong-sheng Li

    Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a complex group of malignant tumors characterized by immunosuppression and high invasiveness. In the majority of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma, treatment fails to achieve a complete cure post-treatment. Efforts are needed to develop new therapeutics to improve the outcome of renal cell carcinoma. The "immune checkpoint" of T cells has attracted much atte...

  • Research Progress on Ferroptosis as a Therapeutic Strategy in Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Minna Liu, Min Bai ... Peng Zhang

    Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common type of kidney cancer in adults and constitutes approximately 90% of all renal malignancies. Although advancements have been made in the treatment of RCC, the 5 -year survival rate is still low, and new treatment modalities are still required. Ferroptosis is an iron-dependent programmed cell death caused by the accumulation of lipid peroxide products. Recent ...

  • Long Non-coding RNA INE1 Induced Autophagy Promotes Sensitivity of Prostate Cancer Cells to Cisplatin

    Hezhen Chu, Kongdong Li ... Jun Ma

    Prostate cancer is most prevalent malignancy of males in the world. In recent years, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) were identified, and their functions are associated with prostate cancer initiation and progression. However, their molecular mechanisms still need to be elucidated before the clinical utility. In the present study, we identified the correlation of lncRNA inactivation escape 1 (INE1)...

  • Is Robotic-assisted Partial Nephrectomy an Efficacious and Safe Procedure for Removal of Stage T1 Renal Tumors?

    Deshraj Choudhary, Shams Tabrej Asgarali Ansari ... Saqib Shahab

    Robotic surgery has now evolved as an emerging tool for better and easy operative techniques. The quest for trifecta comprising warm ischemia time less than 25 minutes, negative surgical margins and no perioperative complications seems to be better accomplished by robotic partial nephrectomy, which is likely to become the new standard for minimally invasive partial nephrectomy. It is a prospective...

  • Long Non-coding RNA FAM66C Promotes Prostate Cancer Metastasis via JNK-Mediated Proteasome and Lysosomal Pathway

    Zhenqian Qin, Kongdong Li ... Xuefeng Yuan

    A lower expression of lncRNA FAM66C was noted in the most prostate cancer patients. Knockdown of FAM66C in human prostate cancer DU145 and PC-3 cells promoted EMT and cell migration, which was suppressed by proteasomal inhibitor MG132 and lysosomal inhibitor CQ. Knockdown of FAM66C induced JNK signaling, cell migration and invasion, and activation of proteasome and lysosome pathways were suppresse...

    Pheochromocytoma is a tumour of the adrenal medulla, derived from catecholamine producing chromaffin cells. Malignant pheochromocytomas constitute 10–25% of all cases. These are difficult to diagnose microscopically. Therefore, malignant pheochromocytomas are diagnosed by the presence of local invasion or metastatic disease. Case presentation We present a case of malignant Pheochromocytoma in a 20...

    In contrast to proctitis, vaginitis and acute radiation cystitis, late urological complications after pelvic irradiation are rarer, more serious and irreversible. The main disadvantage of radiotherapy is the fact that it affects both cancer and healthy cells located in the tumour area. As a consequence, different complications develop. A large proportion of cancers treated with radiotherapy are lo...

    Karishma Gupta, Danly Omil-Lima ... Kyle Scarberry

    Micropapillary urothelial carcinoma (MPUC) is a rare and aggressive histologic variant of bladder cancer. Treatment guidelines recommend forgoing Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy in favor of early radical cystectomy for non-muscle invasive (NMI)-MPUC due to high rates of disease progression. We aimed to evaluate its management in patients with immediate cystectomy and BCG across various cen...
