    Olaparib Efficacy in Patients With Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer and BRCA1, BRCA2, or ATM Alterations Identified by Testing Circulating Tumor DNA

    The authors presented exploratory analyses on the use of ctDNA testing as an additional method to identify castration-resistant prostate cancer patients with homologous recombination repair gene alterations who may be eligible for olaparib treatment.

    Prognostic Impact of Unsupervised Early Assessment of Bulk and Leukemic Stem Cell Measurable Residual Disease in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Researchers evaluated the performance of unsupervised clustering for the post-induction assessment of bulk and leukemic stem cells measurable residual disease in 155 acute myeloid leukemia patients who received intensive conventional chemotherapy treatment.

    ATF3 Reprograms the Bone Marrow Niche in Response to Early Breast Cancer Transformation

    Using a spontaneous model of mammary carcinoma, investigators identified bone marrow (BM) mesenchymal stem cells as the first sensors of distal cancer cells and key mediators of BM reprogramming.

    LncRNA PVT-1 Promotes Osteosarcoma Cancer Stem-Like Properties through Direct Interaction with TRIM28 and TSC2 Ubiquitination

    Scientists demonstrated that Plasmacytoma Variant Translocation-1 (PVT-1) was critical for osteosarcoma tumor-initiation potential, further elucidating the role of PVT-1 in the enhancement of cancer stem-like behaviors.


    DHODH Inhibition Impedes Glioma Stem Cell Proliferation, Induces DNA Damage, and Prolongs Survival in Orthotopic Glioblastoma Xenografts

    Researchers demonstrated that glioma stem cells (GSCs) lacking epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) amplification were exquisitely sensitive to de novo pyrimidine synthesis perturbations, while GSCs that amplify EGFR were utterly resistant.


    Meis1 Supports Leukemogenesis through Stimulation of Ribosomal Biogenesis and Myc

    While HoxA9 alone immortalizes cells, cooperation with Meis1 is necessary to induce a full leukemic phenotype. Here, scientists applied degron techniques to elucidate the leukemogenic contribution of Meis1.

    Loss of miR-637 Promotes Cancer Cell Stemness via WASH/IL-8 Pathway and Serves as a Novel Prognostic Marker in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Researchers identified miR-637 as a Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein and SCAR Homolog (WASH)-targeting miRNA. miR-637 mimic strongly attenuated the downstream IL-8 production and tumor sphere formation in esophageal cancer cells, whereas miR-637 inhibitor displayed an opposite effect.

    CEACAM1 Is a Direct Sox10 Target and Inhibits Melanoma Immune Infiltration and Stemness

    The authors identified melanoma cell lines lacking Sox10 expression which retained their in vivo growth capabilities.
