BACKGROUND: It is elusive which subtypes of immune cells are pivotal in cancer progression and prognosis in gastric cancer (GC). The aim of this study is to clarify clinical impact of immature myeloid-derived immune cells in patients with GC who underwent curative gastrectomy with curative lymphadenectomy and treated with S-1 (tegafur/gimeracil/oteracil) postoperatively. METHODS: The prognostic impact of recruited CD33+ immature myeloid-derived cells were clinicopathologically analyzed in curatively resected stage II and III GC. Correlation of preoperative peripheral leukocyte fractions with recruited CD33+ immature cells was also assessed. RESULTS: Patients with high CD33+ cell counts in primary tumor showed dramatically worse prognosis (5-y recurrence-free survival 29.0%) than that of the counterparts (79.4%). High CD33+ cell counts independently predicted poor prognosis in stage II/III (hazard ratio, 4.34; P < 0.001). In analyses of each stage, high CD33+ cell count was pivotally associated with poor prognosis in both stages. There was no significant correlation of each peripheral leukocyte fraction with CD33+ cell recruitment. Of note, high CD33+ cell count was significantly correlated with hematogenous recurrence. CONCLUSIONS: Recruitment of CD33+ immature myeloid cells critically predict hematogenous recurrences in curatively resected advanced GC. These results give rational to focusing on CD33+ myeloid-derived cells as a novel approach to tackle advanced GC.

BACKGROUND: WiNTRLINC1 is a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) that positively regulates the Wnt pathway via achaete-scute complex homolog 2 (ASCL2) in colorectal cancer. ASCL2 was recently reported to play a critical role in chemoresistance, however clinical relevance of the WiNTRLINC1/ASCL2 axis remains obscure in colon cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: WiNTRLINC1/ASCL2 expression was investigated at messenger RNA (mRNA) level in 40 primary colon cancer tissues and the corresponding normal mucosa tissues, together with Wnt-related genes (c-Myc/PRL-3) and other lncRNAs (H19, HOTAIR, and MALAT1). Knock-down experiments of WiNTRLINC1 clarified its role in their expression and chemoresistance. RESULTS: Real-time quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction confirmed definite overexpression of WiNTRLINC1 mRNA in primary colon cancer compared with the corresponding normal colon mucosa tissues (p = 0.0005), such as ASCL2, c-Myc, and PRL-3 (p < 0.0001). The four gene expression signatures were tightly associated in the center of the ASCL2 gene (r = 0.72, p < 0.0001) in clinical samples. WiNTRLINC1 was not significantly associated with prognostic factors in colon cancer and other lncRNAs, while the WiNTRLINC1/ASCL2/c-Myc signatures were unique to young-onset colon cancer with differentiated histology. On the other hand, undifferentiated histology was significantly associated with H19 expression. Knockdown of the WiNTRLINC1 gene reduced the expression of ASCL2/c-Myc, but rather augmented PRL-3 at mRNA level, and robustly affected cell viability in colon cancer cell lines. CONCLUSION: The enhanced WiNTRLINC1/ASCL2/c-Myc axis involved in Wnt pathway activation is a common pathway essential for differentiated colon tumorigenesis, especially with young onset, and may be essential for a viable phenotype of colon cancer.

BACKGROUND: There have been few available prognostic biomarkers in gastric cancer. We rigorously assessed the clinical relevance of promoter DNA methylation of Cysteine dioxygenase type 1 (CDO1) gene, a cancer-specific aberration, in human gastric cancer. METHODS: Quantitative CDO1 methylation value (TaqMeth V) was initially calculated in 138 gastric cancer patients operated in 2005, and its clinical significance was elucidated. As a subsequent expanded set, 154 gastric cancer patients with pathological stage (pStage) II / III with no postoperative therapy were validated between 2000 and 2010. RESULTS: (1) Median TaqMeth V of CDO1 gene methylation of gastric cancer was 25.6, ranging from 0 to 120.9. As pStage progressed, CDO1 TaqMeth V became higher (p < 0.0001). (2) The optimal cut-off value was determined to be 32.6; gastric cancer patients with high CDO1 gene methylation showed a significantly worse prognosis than those with low CDO1 gene methylation (p < 0.0001). (3) A multivariate cox proportional hazards model identified high CDO1 gene methylation (p = 0.033) as an independent prognostic factor. (4) The results were recapitulated in the expanded set in pStage III, where high CDO1 gene methylation group had a significantly worse prognosis than low CDO1 gene methylation group (p = 0.0065). Hematogenous metastasis was unique in pStage III with high CDO1 gene methylation (p = 0.0075). (5) Anchorage independent growth was reduced in several gastric cancer cell lines due to forced expression of the CDO1 gene, suggesting that abnormal CDO1 gene expression may represent distant metastatic ability. CONCLUSIONS: Promoter DNA hypermethylation of CDO1 gene was rigorously validated as an important prognostic biomarker in primary gastric cancer with specific stage.

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to elucidate the optimized lymph node dissection range in middle thoracic (Mt) esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) requiring surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 165 ESCC patients who underwent surgery with curative intent between 2009 and 2016, including 99 (60%) with MtESCC. Preoperative chemotherapy was administered in more than 80% of cStage II/III MtESCC patients. The rates of pathological and potential metastasis (representing recurrences) to lymph nodes and prognosis (median follow-up 52 months) were clarified. Lymph node dissection efficacy was assessed by calculating the efficacy index (EI) for each lymph node. RESULTS: No. 2R had the highest rate of metastasis, with frequencies of 13/38/46% in cStage I/II/III, respectively, with the highest EI in MtESCC. Recurrences were seen in about 2-10% in the regional (nos. 1, 2L, 4R, and 10) and extraregional lymph nodes (paraaortic lymph node). The EI of lymph nodes was found to exhibit the highest score of 15 for no. 2R, followed by 11.5 for no. 17. The 5-year overall survival (OS) in MtESCC patients who underwent no. 2R lymph node dissection was 73.8%, while those who did not undergo no. 2R dissection did never reach 5-year OS (P = 0.002). CONCLUSIONS: Meticulous lymph node dissection of no. 2R is the most important for long-term survival, and mandatory with the highest priority in MtESCC.

The patient was a 52-year-old man who had a positive fecal occult-blood test on a medical check-upi n April 2015 and was referred to our hospital in June. Detailed preoperative examinations resulted in a diagnosis of cancer of the lower rectum, multiple liver metastases, and clinical Stage IV . A biopsy showed moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma. All-RAS was wild type, and the patient was asymptomatic. Unresectable advanced rectal cancer was diagnosed, and the patient was scheduled to receive systemic chemotherapy. The patient received a total of 16 courses of combination chemotherapy with 5- fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and oxaliplatin(FOLFOX)plus panitumumab, starting in October 2015. In July 2016, Colonoscopy showed scar findings at the site of the primary rectal cancer lesion. A biopsy revealed no cancer cells. It was difficult to identify the primary lesion on computed tomography, and there was no evidence of clinically significant lymphadenopathy. Positronemission tomography and computed tomography showed shrinkage of the liver metastases, with no accumulation of tracer in the primary lesion or lymph nodes. The primary lesion had a clinical complete response(CR), and the metastatic lesions had a clinical partial response(PR). In October 2016, laparoscopic partial hepatectomy was performed to treat the liver metastases. Histologic examination showed that the liver metastases were from rectal cancer. It is currently under observation.

A 75-year-old female patient complained of a mass in her left breast 2 years ago. The patient experienced a rapid enlargement of the mass 2 months later and visited our hospital. A computed tomography (CT) scan indicated a 25-cm tumor with infiltration of the left breast skin. Pectoral muscle invasion was considered. Swelling of the axillary lymph node and remote metastases were not found. A needle biopsy indicated a phyllodes tumor. A pectoral muscle-preserving mastectomy was undertaken. The tumor weighed 7.1 kg. Pathological examination indicated hyperplasia of the stroma and part of the epithelium, which had invaded the skin layer and fatty tissue. The pathological diagnosis was a malignant phyllodes tumor. This paper reports the case of a giant malignant phyllodes tumor.
