Testicular Cancer Epidemiology in Developing Countries. Review of the literature.

CONCLUSIONS: A rise in the incidence of TC has been seen globally, this trend mainly in developing countries. In Colombia most studies are crossectional studies. By seeing the epidemiological data from some departments and the lack of specialists in those regions, it can be deduced the existence of an underreport of the disease that reveals the need to improve both surveillance systems and information registration, such as policies to achieve early diagnosis of TC.

Authors: Omrcen T, Katic A, Vrdoljak E Abstract PURPOSE: To analyze the role of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) in the decision-making process in clinical stage one (CS I) testicular cancer (TC). METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated data on 115 consecutive patients with CS I TC (excluding stage IS) who were referred to the Department of Oncology, University Hospital of Split, Croatia, from 2003 to 2012. Fifty-six patients (48.7%) were referred between 2003 and 2007, before the introduction of the MDT and 59 patients (51.3%) between 2008 and 2012, after the introduction of the MDT. We evaluated the overall treat...

Contributors : Amy M Lyndaker ; Claire Anderson ; Robert S WeissSeries Type : Genome variation profiling by genome tiling arrayOrganism : Mus musculusTesticular germ cell tumors are among the most responsive solid cancers to conventional chemotherapy. To elucidate the underlying mechanisms, we developed a mouse testicular germ cell tumor model in which germ cell-specific oncogenic Kras activation and tumor suppressor Pten inactivation was driven by CRE-mediated recombination. The resulting mice rapidly developed malignant, metastatic testicular cancers composed of both teratoma and embryonal carcinoma, the latter of which ...

Authors: Burdelski C, Jakani-Karimi N, Jacobsen F, Möller-Koop C, Minner S, Simon R, Sauter G, Steurer S, Clauditz TS, Wilczak W Abstract IMP3 is an RNA binding protein required for ribosomal RNA processing, which has been suggested to be a prognostic marker in a large variety of human types of cancer. However, available data on the prevalence of IMP3 expression are largely discrepant. To systematically investigate the epidemiology and clinical relevance of IMP3 expression in human cancers we employed a two-step tissue microarrays (TMAs) approach. First, a normal tissue TMA and a multi-tumor TMA were analyzed ...
