#Ovarian cancer risk in relation to blood #lipid levels and hyperlipidemia: a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational epidemiologic studies

Epidemiologic evidence regarding association of ovarian cancer risk with blood lipid level and hyperlipidemia is inconsistent. We aimed to synthesize available epidemiologic studies to disentangle associations of cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and hyperlipidemia with ovarian cancer risk. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science for eligible studies. A random-effects model was applied for synthesis. Heterogeneity was evaluated by … Continue reading #Ovarian cancer risk in relation to blood #lipid levels and hyperlipidemia: a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational epidemiologic studies

#Nanoparticle-Mediated Delivery of 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose Induces Antitumor Immunity and Cytotoxicity in #Liver Tumors in Mice

Immune checkpoint inhibitors have shed light on the importance of antitumor immunity as a therapeutic strategy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The altered glucose metabolism known as the Warburg effect recently has gained attention as a cancer immune-resistance mechanism. Considering glycolysis inhibitors as therapeutic agents, their specific delivery to cancer cells is critical not to induce adverse effects. Thus, we investigated antitumor effects of a glycolysis … Continue reading #Nanoparticle-Mediated Delivery of 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose Induces Antitumor Immunity and Cytotoxicity in #Liver Tumors in Mice
