FTY720 inhibits mesothelioma growth in vitro and in a syngeneic mouse model

FTY720 inhibits mesothelioma growth in vitro and in a syngeneic mouse model

Journal of Translational Medicine

Abstract Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a very aggressive type of cancer, with a dismal prognosis and inherent resistance to chemotherapeutics. Development and evaluation of new therapeutic approaches is highly needed. Immunosuppressant FTY720, approved for multiple sclerosis treatment, has recently raised attention for its anti-tumor activity in a variety of cancers. However, its therapeutic potential in MM has not been evaluated yet.

Oncotarget Advance Publication: HMGB1 targeting by ethyl pyruvate suppresses malignant phenotype of human mesothelioma

We studied the effect of ethyl pyruvate (EP), the ethyl ester of pyruvic acid, on the malignant phenotype of MM cells in tissue culture and on tumor growth in vivo using an orthotopic MM xenograft model.

Improving the accuracy of mesothelioma diagnosis in China

Improving the accuracy of mesothelioma diagnosis in China

Journal of Thoracic Oncology, December 24, 2016

There is concern that a proportion of MM diagnoses in China may be incorrect because most Chinese physicians do not have experience diagnosing this rare cancer. We recently reported an unusual high incidence of peritoneal MM among Eastern Chinese female patients. Here, we review the accuracy of MM diagnoses in China and provide suggestions to improve the accuracy of diagnosis.
