Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is a necessary factor in the development of cervical cancer. A new HPV screening method, "Human Papillomavirus Genotyping (HPG)", was developed to detect 29 HPV genotypes distribution in China. The utility of HPG was compared to Hybrid Capture 2 High-Risk HPV DNA test (HC2), and it was determined that the HPG test had been proven to be a more credible and sensitive screening HPV method than the HC2 test. HPV16, HPV 52, HPV 56, and HPV 58 were the four most common HPV genotypes in women who have suffered chronic cervicitis or abnormal vaginal bleeding in China. HPV 16 (28.57%) and 18 (17.86%) were more likely to infect multiple HPV genotypes than other HPV genotypes. Age group more than 50 years had a higher risk than other age groups.

Background Tissue factor (TF) is a significant risk factor for tumor growth and hepatic metastasis in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). This study aimed to investigate whether hyperthermia has synergistic anti-tumor effects with TF knockdown in suppressing CRC progression and metastasis in vitro and in vivo. Methods Human colorectal cancer LOVO cells were treated by hyperthermia at 44°C for 2 hr or/and TF siRNA. Then the cells were subjected to colony formation assay. Apoptosis was analyzed by flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The cell migration and invasion abilities were analyzed by wound healing and matrigel assay. In addition, orthotopic nude mice model of CRC was established. Results Hyperthermia synergized with TF knockdown to reduce colony formation ability, induce apoptosis, and suppress the migration and invasion of LOVO cells in vitro. Moreover, hyperthermia in combination with TF depletion inhibited the growth and hepatic metastasis of CRC in orthotopic nude mice model. Mechanistically, the synergistic effects were at least partly mediated by inducing JNK mediated apoptosis and suppressing matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) mediated invasion. Conclusions Hyperthermia in combination with TF-targeted therapy could be a potential approach for CRC treatment. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

There have been a few epidemiological studies reporting VDR polymorphisms including Fok1, Bsm1, Apa1 and Taq1with breast cancer incidence and therefore risk. The results however are controversial, often due to smaller sample size. Concerning most of the studies were performed on Caucasian women, we conducted this comprehensive meta-analysis encompassing 38,151 cases and 47,546 controls (Fok1: 13,152 cases, 17,443 controls; Bsm1: 14,755 cases, 18,633 controls; Apa1: 3080 cases, 3412 controls; Taq1: 7164 cases, 8068 controls) to better understand roles of the polymorphisms in breast cancer development among Caucasian population. We did not find any association of the most controversial genotype Fok1 with breast cancer risk in Caucasian women (ff vs. FF: OR = 1.05, 95% CI = 0.95-1.22, P = 0.32 for heterogeneity; ff vs. Ff: OR = 1.05, 95% CI = 0.94-1.17, P = 0.40; ff vs. Ff + FF: OR = 1.07, 95% CI = 0.95-1.14, P = 0.37 and ff + Ff vs. FF: OR = 1.04, 95% CI = 0.99-1.09, P = 0.23). For Bsm1, Apa1 and Taq1, no significant association was also not found in the homozygote comparison, heterozygote comparison, recessive and dominant models respectively. In conclusion, the current analysis suggested that the four polymorphisms (Fok1, Bsm1, Apa1 and Taq1) of VDR may be not associated with breast cancer risk in Caucasian women. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
