Clinicopathologic Characteristics of Pregnancy-Associated Breast Cancer: Results of Analysis of a Nationwide Breast Cancer Registry Database.

This study aimed to evaluate the clinicopathological characteristics of pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) in comparison with non-pregnancy associated breast cancer (non-PABC). METHODS: A total of 344 eligible patients with PABC were identified in the Korean Breast Cancer Society Registry database. PABC was defined as ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, or invasive lobular carcinoma diagnosed during pregnancy or within 1 year after the birth of a child. Patients with non-PABC were selected from the same database using a 1:2 matching method. The matching variables were operation, age, and initial stage. RESULTS: Patients with PABC had significantly lower survival rates than patient with non-PABC (10-year survival rate: PABC, 76.4%; non-PABC, 85.1%; p=0.011). PABC patients had higher histologic grade and were more frequently hormone receptor negative than non-PABC patients. Being overweight (body mass index [BMI], ≥23 kg/m(2)), early menarche (≤13 years), late age at first childbirth (≥30 years), and a family history of breast cancer were more common in the PABC group than in the non-PABC group. Multivariate analysis showed the following factors to be significantly associated with PABC (vs. non-PABC): early menarche (odds ratio [OR], 2.165; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.566-2.994; p

CONCLUSION: Pregnancy outcomes after hysteroscopic placement of a microinsert for hydrosalpinx management before embryo transfer were comparable to those following laparoscopic proximal tubal occlusion or salpingectomy. However, caution is advised regarding microinsert placement for hydrosalpinges before proceeding with assisted reproductive technology. PMID: 32224160 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Lee Y, Ahn EH, Ryu CS, Kim JO, An HJ, Cho SH, Kim JH, Kim YR, Lee WS, Kim NK Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the potential association of five miRNA machinery gene polymorphisms (DICER1 rs3742330A>G, DROSHA rs10719T>C, RAN rs14035C>T, XPO5 rs11077A>C and DGCR8 rs417309G>A) with recurrent implantation failure (RIF), a clinical condition in which good-quality embryos repeatedly fail to implant following two or more in vitro fertilization cycles, and its associated risk factors in Korean women. Therefore, the present study performed genotype analysis and assessed the frequency o...

Authors: Zhou S, Wei J, Wang Y, Liu X Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. Despite clinical advances, the survival rate of patients with HCC remains low, as most patients are diagnosed with HCC when they are already at the advanced stage. Certain circular RNAs (circRNAs) are closely associated with the development of liver cancer. In the present study, a circRNA array was performed to screen differentially expressed circRNAs in HCC tissues. The further analysis focused on the newly identified circRNA_101237, the host gene of which, cyclin-dependent kin...

Authors: Li L, Zheng Y, Zheng Q, Jiang J Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the antiproliferative effect of embryonic stem cell-conditioned medium (ESC-CM) on the mouse liver cancer Hepa1-6 cells in vitro. Furthermore, in order to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanism, the microRNAs (miRNAs) in ESC-CM associated with the inhibition of Hepa1-6 proliferation were identified. Following the co-culture of ESC-CM and Hepa1-6 in Transwell chambers, the proliferation, cell cycle, apoptosis and associated protein expression were determined in Hepal-6 cells. Moreover, miRNA array analysis was employed to ...

This report provides an in-depth look at public drug program spending in Canada, using the Canadian Institute for Health Information's (CIHI) National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System. Public drug program spending does not include spending on drugs dispensed in hospitals or on those funded through cancer agencies and other special programs. Public drug program spending increased by 6.8% in 2018, compared to an increase of 5.3% in 2017. The growth in 2018 was largely because of the introduction of Ontario Health Insurance Plan+ (OHIP+), which extended drug coverage to all Ontario residents age 24 years or y...
