PRIX SCIENTIFIQUE KIYOKO GOTO ET PAUL BOURDARIE
Winner Dr. Takahiro TABUCHI,M.D., Ph.D.
Associate chief, Department of Cancer Epidemiology, Cancer Control Center, Osaka International Cancer Institute)
Paper Tobacco smoking and the risk of subsequent primary cancer among cancer survivors: a retrospective cohort study (Annals of Oncology,2013;24(10):2699-704)
Reason that Dr. Takahiro Tabuchi received this prize The 6th Kiyoko Goto and Paul Bourdarie “Scientific Prize” (The 1st prize) was given to Dr. Takahiro Tabuchi. He and his colleagues studied the influence of smoking on occurrence of second cancer, based on a large-scale database, including approximately 30,000 cancer patients obtained by linkage of their institutional cancer registration data and a regional cancer registration data. They elucidated that smokers have a higher probability of suffering from second cancer compared to nonsmokers, especially twice as often in smoking-related cancers such as lung cancer. However, the probability of the second cancer were significantly decreased if they quitted smoking for 3 years or more.
PRIX SPECIAL KIYOKO GOTO ET PAUL BOURDARIE
Winner Dr. Shimpei KUBOTA,M.D. Ph.D. and Dr. Kei TAKAHASHI, Ph.D.
Dr. Shimpei KUBOTA,M.D., Ph.D. Postdoctoral Fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Department of Molecular Pathology, Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo
Dr. Kei TAKAHASHI, Ph.D. Project Researcher, Department of Molecular Pathology, Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo
Paper Whole-Body Profiling of Cancer Metastasis with Single-Cell Resolution(Cell Reports,2017,20, 236-250)
Reason that
Dr. Shimpei Kubota
and Dr. Kei Takahashi received this prize
The 6th Kiyoko Goto and Paul Bourdarie “Scientific Prize-Special Award” (The 2nd prize) was given to Dr. Shimpei Kubota and Dr. Kei Takahashi. They and their colleagues developed a tissue clearing technology to realize the whole body transparency of the mouse. They showed cancer metastasis throughout whole body at single-cell resolution. Using this method, they succeeded in elucidating that epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) played an important role on invasion and proliferation of a lung adenocarcinoma cell line to metastatic sites. This method is expected to become an important infrastructure for future development of cancer research.
