OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the impact of two X-ray repair cross complementing 1 (XRCC1) gene polymorphisms (Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln) on the risk of development of colorectal cancer (CRC) and to assess the expression levels of microRNA-21 (miR-21) in CRC patients.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control cross sectional study was conducted on 50 CRC patients and 50 cancer-free subjects. DNA and miR-21 were extracted from whole blood samples. The expression levels of the XRCC1 polymorphisms and miR-21 were assessed by real-time PCR in all subjects of the study.

RESULTS: Genotype analysis revealed a significant association between CRC risk and both the Arg194Trp genotype (OR=11.407, 95% CI=4.039-32.221, p<0.001) and the Arg399Gln genotype (OR=3.778, 95% CI= 1.6-8.919, p=0.002). The expression levels of circulating miR-21 were able to detect CRC cases significantly (p=0.022) with a sensitivity of 82% and a specificity of 56% (Area under the curve (AUC)=0.633) but were unable to distinguish between early and late cases (AJCC classification) (p=0.194).

CONCLUSION: The XRCC1 Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln polymorphisms both confer high susceptibility for the development of CRC. Circulating miR-21 expression levels are a potentially diagnostic non-invasive genetic marker of CRC.

The present study was conducted to compare between the therapeutic efficacies of human amniotic membrane-derived stem cells (hAM-MSCs) vs. adipose tissue derived stem cells (AD-MSCs) in cyclophosphamide (CTX)-induced ovarian failure in rats. Forty-eight adult female rats were included in the study; 10 rats were used as control group. Thirty-eight rats were injected with CTX to induce ovarian failure and divided into four groups: ovarian failure (IOF) (IOF group), IOF + phosphate buffer saline (PBS group), IOF + hAM-MSCs group and IOF + AD-MSCs group. Serum levels of FSH and estradiol (E2) were assessed. Histopathological examination of the ovarian tissues was performed and quantitative gene expressions of Oct-4, Stra8 and integrin beta-1 genes were conducted by quantitative real time PCR. Results showed that IOF and IOF + PBS rat groups exhibited decreased ovarian follicles, increased interstitial fibrosis with significant decrease of serum E2, significant increase serum FSH level and significant down-regulation of Stra8 and integrin beta-1. In hAM-MSCs and AD-MSCs rat groups, there were increased follicles and corpora with evident the presence of oocytes, significant increase in serum E2, significant decrease in serum FSH levels (in hAM-MSCs treated group only) and significant up-regulation of the three studied genes with higher levels in hAM-MSCs treated rats group when compared to AD-MSCs treated rats group. In Conclusion, administration of either hAM-derived MSCs or AD-MSCs exerts a significant therapeutic efficacy in chemotherapy induced ovarian insult in rats. hAM-MSCs exert higher therapeutic efficacy as compared to AD-MSCs.
