Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a prevalent cancer in lung of high incidence. NSCLCs often appear to be fast growing, which renders comprehension of the mechanisms underlying the growth of NSCLC extremely critical. Previous study has addressed a role of microRNA (miR) family member, miR-183, in the regulation of the invasiveness of NSCLC, whereas the role of miR-183 in the growth control of NSCLC is not clear. Here, we analyzed the regulation of FoxO1 by miR-183 in vitro using luciferase-reporter assay. We also analyzed the effects of miR-183 on NSCLC cell growth in vitro using a microculture tetrazolium (MTT) assay and in vivo by visualizing tumor growth using bioluminescence assay. We found that overexpression of miR-183 in NSCLC cells decreased FoxO1 protein levels, whereas inhibition of miR-183 increased FoxO1 protein levels without affecting FoxO1 transcripts. Moreover, miR-183 bound to FoxO1 mRNA to prevent its translation through its 3′untranslated region (UTR). Furthermore, administration of miR-183 suppressed FoxO1 levels in NSCLC, resulting in a significant increase in NSCLC growth in vitro and in vivo, while administration of antisense of miR-183 significantly increased FoxO1 levels in NSCLC resulting in a significant decrease in NSCLC growth. Taken together, our data demonstrate that miR-183/FoxO1 axis may be a novel therapeutic target for regulating the growth of NSCLC. © 2015, International Society of Oncology and BioMarkers (ISOBM).

Background/Aim: Vitamin D has been suggested to have important roles against cancer development. There were several published studies on the association between vitamin D and lung cancer risk, but not conclusive results were available. Methods: To clarify the role of vitamin D in lung carcinogenesis, we performed a comprehensive review of the literature and a meta-analysis to evaluate the association of serum vitamin D levels and dietary vitamin D intake with lung cancer risk. Twelve studies (9 prospective cohort and 3 nested case-control studies) with a total of 288,778 individuals were included. The summary relative risk (RR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) was used to assess lung cancer risk. Results: Meta-analysis of total 12 studies showed that RR for the association of high vitamin D status with lung cancer was 0.84 (95%CI 0.78-0.90, P < 0.001). The RR of lung cancer for the highest versus lowest quintile of serum vitamin D levels was 0.83 (95%CI 0.77-0.90, P < 0.001). The RR of lung cancer for the highest versus lowest quintile of vitamin D intake was 0.89 (95%CI 0.74-1.06, P = 0.184). Conclusion: Current data suggest an inverse association between serum vitamin D and lung cancer risk. Further studies are needed to investigate the effect of vitamin D intake on lung cancer risk and to evaluate whether vitamin D supplementation can prevent lung cancer. © 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel.

Background Left atrial diverticulum (LAD) is not rare in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Recent reports focused on its morphology however data on its electrophysiological characteristics are lacking. Our study aims to investigate the electrogram and impedance features of LAD. Methods This study included 24 patients (mean age, 58.5 ± 10.7 years) with LAD undergoing catheter ablation for AF and 24 gender-and-age-matched individuals without LAD as controls. A bipolar LAD electroanatomic map was acquired in sinus rhythm from all study participants. Points were acquired for diverticulum in the LAD group and for corresponding areas in the control group. Electrogram deflections were counted, bipolar voltage and impedance were measured for each point, and average Δimpedance and highest Δimpedance were calculated. Results A total of 234 points were collected in the two groups. In the LAD vs. control group, median (Q1, Q3) of electrogram deflections was 6 (5, 7) and 4 (4, 5) (P < 0.0001), respectively, voltage was not significantly different (1.58 ± 0.68 mV vs. 1.28 ± 0.65 mV, P = 0.10), and average Δimpedance was significantly higher in the LAD group (19.5 ± 9.0 Ω vs 3.9 ± 1.7 Ω, P < 0.0001). A cut-off value of 9.5 Ω for Δimpedance predicted LAD with sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values of 83.5%, 92.8%, 92.1% and 84.9%, respectively. Conclusions Electrogram was more fractionated and impedance was higher at LAD than in corresponding areas without LAD, which might help to differentiate LAD during catheter ablation for AF. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
