The Retinoblastoma Binding Protein 6 Family is Essential for Embryonic Development and Carcinogenesis

Ntwasa M1*, Nweke E2 and Cajee UF2
Regulators of the tumour suppressor protein, p53 are promising anti-cancer drug candidates.The retinoblastoma binding protein 6 (RBBP6), a p53 negative regulator, has emerged as an important player in carcinogenesis and is essential for both invertebrate and vertebrate embryonic development. It is a multi-domain protein associated with key cellular processes such as cell cycle control and apoptosis...

Vitamin D and Prevention of Breast Cancer

Takalkar UV1*, Asegaonkar SB2 and Advani S3
Apart from classical actions of vitamin D on bone and mineral metabolism, it exerts diverse protective biological effects against carcinogenesis. Vitamin D may play role in controlling growth of normal breast cells and may help in prevention of growth of malignant mammary cells. Hypovitaminosis D is gaining attention as an emerging risk factor of breast cancer. Some ecological studies suggest association of...

Correlation of Various Prognostic Parameters with Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-2/Neu Status in Malignant Breast Lesions

Swati Sucharita Mohanty*, Prafulla Kumar Mohanty, Sumit Subhadarshi Mohanty, Padmalaya Thakur, Surabhi
The incidence of breast cancer is although low in India, but is rising. Breast cancer is the commonest cancer of urban Indian women and the second commonest in the rural women. Amplification or overexpression of Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-2/neu (HER-2/neu) oncogene has been shown to play an important role in the development and progression of certain aggressive types of breast cancer....

Breast Cancer: Forecasting an Evolving Ecosystem

Gacche RN1* and Kamble S2
Advances in gene-expression profiling and parallel sequencing technology in the past two decades resulted in unravelling the pathophysiological molecular signatures in the progression of cancer in general and breast cancer in particular. In the current state of the art it has been well established that cancer cells within a single tumor are not alike at genetic morphological and behavioral levels. Neverthe...

Inhibitors of PI3K/AKT/mTOR Signaling Pathway as a Novel Targeted Therapy for Cancer

Thekkuttuparambil Ananthanarayanan Ajith*
There are various cytoplasmic cross talking signaling pathways possible in the target cell. The phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K)/AKT/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway (PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway) plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of cancer. mTOR is a serine/threonine protein kinase involve in the downstream of the PI3K signaling pathway...

Physical Activity Promotion for Cancer Prevention

Mauro De Santi*
Physical activity is known to reduce all-cause mortality [1], and individuals who maintain a lifestyle with high mobility and physical activity appear to have a remarkably lower risk of noncommunicable diseases, including cancer. In fact, leisure-time physical activity is associated with lower risks of the primary development of many cancer types....
