Cancer Medicine Publishes its first Early View Articles
Cancer Medicine opened for submissions in January 2011. We have received high quality submissions in all oncologic specialities and now have a number of articles live on Wiley Online Library. Read all our open access articles here! Cancer Medicine is an open access, fully peer reviewed online journal providing rapid publication of cutting-edge research from global biomedical researchers across the cancer sciences.
We hope that next time you are preparing a manuscript you will consider submitting it to the journal. Among the first papers available online are:
Exposure to welding fumes increases lung cancer risk among light smokers but not among heavy smokers: evidence from two case–control studies in Montreal by Eric Vallières, Javier Pintos, Jérôme Lavoué, Marie-Élise Parent, Bernard Rachet and Jack Siemiatycki
Abstract: Welding is one of the most ubiquitous of industrial activities, and consequently, welding fumes is one of the most common industrial exposures throughout the world. This paper contributes to the evidence that exposure to welding fumes may increase the risk of lung, most evidently among non-smokers and mild smokers. This holds true for the two major classes of welding, arc welding, and gas welding.
Interleukin-1β mediates metalloproteinase-dependent renal cell carcinoma tumor cell invasion through the activation of CCAAT enhancer binding protein β by Brenda L. Petrella and Matthew P. Vincenti
Abstract: Inflammation is a poor prognostic indicator for renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and metastatic RCC remains a major medical concern, as it is refractory to standard therapies. We hypothesized that inflammatory cytokines in the tumor microenvironment directly affect RCC tumor cells to progress to a metastatic phenotype. We report that IL-1β stimulated RCC tumor cell invasion in a mechanism that required the activation of the CCAAT Enhancer Binding Protein-β (CEBPβ) transcription factor and the subsequent induction of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs).
