- Genetic regulation of OAS1 nonsense-mediated decay underlies association with COVID-19 hospitalization in patients of European and African ancestries 14/07/2022The chr12q24.13 locus encoding OAS1-OAS3 antiviral proteins has been associated with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) susceptibility. Here, we report genetic, functional and clinical insights into this locus in relation to COVID-19 severity. In our analysis of patients of European (n = 2,249) and African (n = 835) ancestries with hospitalized versus nonhospitalized COVID-19, the risk […]A Rouf Banday
- Telomere length and Wnt/β-catenin pathway in adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas 18/05/2022CONCLUSIONS: CTNNB1: mutations are more frequent in children and adolescents and appear to associate with progressive disease. CTNNB1-mutated aCPs have shorter telomeres, demonstrating a relationship between the Wnt/β-catenin pathway and telomere biology in the pathogenesis of aCPs.Jose Italo Soares Mota
- Extracellular Vesicles and Interleukins: Novel Frontiers in Diagnostic and Therapeutic for Cancer 07/04/2022Tumor cells present many strategies for survival and dissemination in the tumor environment. Extracellular vesicles are a vital pathway used in crosstalk between tumor and non-malignant cells. They carry different types of molecules that, when internalized by target cells, can activate signaling pathways and molecular processes that will promote and disseminate neoplastic cells. Proteins, nucleic […]Aline G Souza
- Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in Tumors Harboring Homologous Recombination Deficiency: Challenges in Attaining Efficacy 25/02/2022Cancer cells harbor genomic instability due to accumulated DNA damage, one of the cancer hallmarks. At least five major DNA Damage Repair (DDR) pathways are recognized to repair DNA damages during different stages of the cell cycle, comprehending base excision repair (BER), nucleotide excision repair (NER), mismatch repair (MMR), homologous recombination (HR), and non-homologous end […]Saulo Brito Silva
- Associação Brasileira de Hematologia, Hematologia, Hemoterapia e Terapia Celular Consensus on genetically modified cells. Review article: Cell therapy in solid tumors 19/11/2021The use of immunotherapy in cancer treatment over the past decade has resulted in significant advances and improvements in cancer patients survival with the use of checkpoint inhibitors. Nevertheless, only a fraction of solid tumors responds to this immunotherapy modality. Another modality of immunotherapy consists of employing cell-based therapy as an adoptive therapeutic modality. That […]Mirella Nardo
