Despite the relative low incidence, when compared to other lung tumors, Small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) is the most aggressive subtype, with high capacity of growth and dissemination. About 30% of patients diagnosed with SCLC do not respond to first line chemotherapy and relapse within 6 months. Mechanisms of tumor escape are still unknown, however they can involve: i) rapid evolution ...
Melanoma causes the majority of deaths related to skin cancer. This cancer follows a classic progression, which is subdivided on the basis of cellular penetration. In invasive cancers, metabolic reprogramming is associated with the physiopathology of neoplastic cells. Metabolic reprogramming affects ATP production by the down-regulation of OXPHOS, which happens in the inner mitochondria...
Melanoma is a malignancy caused by accumulation of genetic alterations in melanocytes, and it is the deadliest form of skin cancer due to its high metastatic potential. The genetic basis of melanoma is well characterized, and activating mutations in the RAF/RAS pathway (i.e. BRAFV600E) combined with other genetic mutations, i.e. PTEN silencing, have been shown to induce metastatic melan...
