Background: Previous studies have demonstrated the diagnostic value of glucose transporter 1 (GLUT-1) to distinguish malignant mesothelioma (MM) from reactive mesothelial cells (RMC), but the results are inconsistent. The purpose of this meta-analysis is to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of GLUT-1 in distinguishing MM from RMC.Methods: A systematical search was conducted until May 2019 in PubMed, Medline, Embase and the Cochrane Library. The revised tool for the quality assessment of diagnostic accuracy studies (QUADAS-2) was used to assess the quality of the eligible studies. The Stata15 and Review Manager5.3 software programmes were used to perform the meta-analysis.Results: A total of 24 studies, including 969 MM patients and 1080 RMC individuals were explored in the meta-analysis. The summary assessments revealed that the pooled sensitivity was 0.73 (95% CI, 0.62-0.81) and the pooled specificity was 0.95 (95% CI, 0.91-0.98). The area under the summary ROC curve (AUC) was 0.93 (95% CI: 0.91-0.95).Conclusions: GLUT-1 is highly accurate to distinguish MM from RMC.

There is increasing evidence that cancer stem cells contribute to the initiation and propagation of many tumor. Therefore, to find out and identify the metastatic tumor stem-like cells in Lewis lung cancer cell line (LLC), the expression of CXCR4 was measured in LLC by flow cytometry and observed by laser scanning confocal microscope (LSCM). After the CXCR4(+) LLC cell was isolated from LLC by magnetic cell sorting, its properties were evaluated by their tumorigenic and metastatic potentials. CXCR4(+) cells were counted for 0.18% of the total number of LLC, and immunofluorescent staining cells were identified by LSCM. CXCR4(+) LLC suspension cultured in a serum-free medium, cell spheres expressed a high level of Sca-1. The chemotherapy sensitivity to cisplatin of CXCR4(+) LLC was lower than that of CXCR4(-) LLC. The expression of ABCG2 and IGF1R mRNA in CXCR4(+) LLC was higher than that in CXCR4(-) LLC (P < 0.01). Most of CXCR4(+) LLC cells were close to vascular endothelial cells, aberrant vasculature around it was forming. The expression of VEGF and MMP9 mRNA in CXCR4(+) LLC was higher than that in CXCR4(-) LLC (P < 0.05), the microvessel density (MVD) of CXCR4(+) subsets growing were higher than that of CXCR4(-) subsets growing tumor tissue (P < 0.01). The tumor size, volume, and metastatic foci in the lungs of CXCR4(+) LLC was significantly higher than that in CXCR4(-) LLC (P < 0.001). Similarly, elevated expression of MMP9 and VEGF was also positively associated with CXCR4(+) LLC. Our results demonstrated that CXCR4(+) cells from Lewis lung carcinoma cell line exhibit cancer metastatic stem cell characteristics.

Increasing evidence has suggested that bronchioalveolar stem cell (BASC) is the progenitor cells of lung cancer stem cells. However, the mechanisms by which self-renewal of BSACs is controlled and how BASCs turn into cancer stem cells still remains to be unknown. In the present study, we successfully isolated bronchioalveolar stem cells (BASCs) from mouse lung using FACS. These BASCs were characterized by clonal growth, self-renewal and high capacity for differentiation, suggesting that these BASCs are indeed stem cells. We investigated the microRNA (miRNA) expression profile of these BASCs using miRNA array and quantitative RT-PCR. We discovered that BASCs possessed a unique miRNA profile, with altered expression of several microRNAs, such as miR-142-3p, miR-451, miR-106a, miR-142-5p, miR-15b, miR-20a, miR-106b, miR-25, miR-486, in BASCs compared to control cells. Our results suggest that microRNAs might play important roles in maintaining the self-renewal capacity of BASCs, and suggest the intriguing possibility that aberrant expression of microRNAs could involved in turning BASCs into lung cancer stem cells.
