Abstract

Cancer cachexia is a life-threatening metabolic syndrome that causes significant loss of skeletal muscle mass and significantly increases mortality in cancer patients. Currently, there is an urgent need for better understanding of the molecular pathophysiology of this disease so that ef...read more

Cardiac Cachexia

Cardiac cachexia is a syndrome associated with the progressive loss of muscle and fat mass. It most commonly affects patients with heart failure and can significantly decrease the quality of life and survival in these patients. Here is the latest research on cardiac cachexia.

Disease Cachexia (General)

Cachexia is a prevalent pathological condition associated with several diseases and morbidities, such as chronic heart failure. Discover the latest research on disease cachexia here.

Extracellular Matrix in Cancer

The extracellular matrix (ECM) ensures tissue integrity and play a role in cell growth, migration, and differentiation. ECM abnormalities play a key role in tumorigenesis and metastasis. Here is the latest research on ECM in cancer.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma holds a significant mortality risk, largely due to its late diagnosis and ineffective chemotherapeutic response. This gastrointestinal malignancy offers a poor prognosis and the only potential cure is through surgical resection. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Human Tumor Atlas

The Human Tumor Atlas is a collaborative project that uses detailed maps of a variety of cancers to investigate cancer development, metastasis, and treatments.

Mitochondrial Metabolism

Mitochondrial metabolism links energy production to other essential cellular processes such as signaling, cellular differentiation, and apoptosis. Discover the latest research here.

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

Tumor Cell Mitochondria

Mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells, play a crucial role in tumorigenesis and directly influence cancer metabolism and alter response of the tumors to chemotherapeutic agents. Discover the latest research on tumor cell mitochondria here.

Neural Circuitry & Cachexia

Cytokines released during inflammation and malignancy act on the central nervous system to alter the release and function of a number of neurotransmitters, thereby altering both appetite and metabolic rate, leading to the rise of cachexia. Discover the latest research on neural circuitry and cachexia here

Cachexia & Brown Fat

Cachexia is a condition associated with progressive weight loss due to severe illness. In cancer patients, it is proposed to occur as a result of tumor-induced energy wasting. Several proteins have been implicated in browning and depletion of white adipose tissue. Here is the latest research on cachexia and brown fat.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Melanocortin-3 Receptor & Cachexia

Blockade of the melanocortin-3 receptor (mc3-r) leads to enhanced disease-associated cachexia. Discover the latest research on mc3-r and cachexia here.

Ubiquitin System

Ubiquitin is a small regulatory protein that is attached to proteins as a post-translational modification in a process known as ubiquitination to regulate protein turnover, location, or activity. Here is the latest research on the ubiquitin system.

Mitochondria and Cancer

Cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria and an important hub for metabolic processes that is dysregulated in cancer. Discover the latest research here.

Genetic Epidemiology Of Complex Diseases

Genetic epidemiology examines the role of genetic factors in determining health and disease in populations and the interaction between these genetic factors with environmental factors. Here is the latest research on the genetic epidemiology of complex multifactorial diseases like cancer.
