The impact of obesity and adiponectin signaling in patients with renal cell carcinoma: A potential mechanism for the “obesity paradox”

Although obesity increases the risk of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), obese patients with RCC experience longer survival than non-obese patients. However, the mechanism of this “obesity paradox” is unknown. We examined the impact of preoperative BMI, serum total adiponectin (sAd) level, total adiponectin secretion from perinephric adipose tissue, and intratumoral expression of...

Insulin-like growth factor-1 genotypes and haplotypes influence the survival of prostate cancer patients with bone metastasis at initial diagnosis

Background The insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) plays an important role in growth of prostate cancer (PCa) cells and facilitating the development and progression of PCa. This study aimed to evaluate the association of polymorphisms in three linkage disequilibrium (LD) blocks of the IGF-1 on the survival of metastatic PCa patients. Methods A total of 215 patients with bone...

Overexpression of Fn14 promotes androgen-independent prostate cancer progression through MMP-9 and correlates with poor treatment outcome

Fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 (Fn14), a transmembrane receptor binding to the multifunctional cytokine tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK), is known to modulate many cellular activities including cancer progression. Here, we demonstrated the significant role of Fn14 in invasion, migration and proliferation of androgen-independent prostate cancer...
