Serous carcinoma arising from adenomyosis

Adenomyosis (variant diseases of the endometriosis) is still a biggest challenge for both physicians and patients [1 –3]. Common symptoms and signs include an elevated of serum level of CA 125, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, and infertility [4,5]. Because of poor understanding of pathophysiology of adenomyosis [6], the current treatment strategy might be only limited to symptom treatment, including hormone thera py to induce menopause status, waiting for spontaneous menopause, and the destructive surgery, such as total hysterectomy and/or adenomyomectomy, cytoreduction of adenomyosis.

Presently, surgery and radiation (with and without chemotherapy) are the major treatments for oral cancer; however it met with limited therapeutic outcome. Overcoming the multidrug resistance and finding new therapeutic agents for oral cancer treatment are some of the serious challenges. Small molecule, TH287 potently and selectively inhibits the MTH1 protein in cells and could act as a ne...

In this study, three undescribed cucurbitane-type triterpene glycosides furpyronecucurbitane A, goyaglycoside I and charantagenin F along with nine known compounds were isolated from the immature fruit of Momordica charantia L. Their structures were identified on the basis of extensive 1D, 2D NMR and HRESIMS spectroscopy analysis. All isolated compounds were examined for their anti-hepatic fibrosis activity against murine hepatic stellate cells (t-HSC/Cl-6) and anti-hepatoma activity against two kinds of liver cancer cell lines (HepG2 and Hep3B). Among them, karaviloside III exhibited excellent inhibitory activity against ...

In infertility investigations, should the mixed antiglobulin reaction (MAR) test be a first-line test? Should it be carried out systematically before assisted reproductive technology (ART)? What are the risk factors for ASA?DesignAll infert...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for detecting the salivary metabolic changes associated with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Unstimulated whole-mouth saliva samples collected from HNSCC patients (primary tum...

The aim of the present study as to identify the subgroup of patients with BCLC-B HCC who could benefit from liver resection. The present study retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of 65 patients (training cohort) who underwent liver resection for multinodular BCLC-B HCC. ...

Genomic profiling of synchronous MPMTs has not been systematically investigated to elucidate their genetic associations, but may be important to assist diagnosis and guide appropriate treatment strategy. In the present study, mutation profiling was performed using targeted next generation sequencing (NGS) on 416 cancer-related genes in synchronous triple primary tumors of the lung, kidney and thyroid in a 32-year-old female patient. The patie...

The somatic mutations, particularly those with low mutant allele frequencies, in Chinese patients with liver and biliary cancer have not been profiled, and the frequency of patients benefiting from targeted therapy has not been studied. The present study evaluated the tumor tissues of 45 Chinese patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and 12 Chines...

Authors: Zhao T, Bao Y, Lu X, He Y, Gan X, Wang J, Liu B, Wang L Abstract Proline-rich tyrosine kinase 2 (Pyk2), a member of the focal adhesion kinase family, has recently been associated with tumor development. However, the role of Pyk2 in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains unexplored. The present study investigated the expression pattern, clinical significance, and function of Pyk2 in RCC. By using a reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction, tissue microarray and immunohistochemistry, it was demonstrated that RCC tissues display a higher Pyk2 expression compared with paired adjacent nontumor t...

Authors: Lee HS, Choi J, Son T, Lee EJ, Kim JG, Ryu SH, Lee D, Jang MK, Yu E, Chung YH, Gelman IH, Kim KW Abstract AKAP12 belongs to A-kinase anchoring protein (AKAP) family of scaffold proteins and is known as a tumor suppressor in several human cancer types. Its role as a tumor suppressor in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was proposed due to its downregulation and epigenetic modification in human HCC; however, the effect of its deficiency on liver injuries, such as liver fibrosis and cancer has been poorly studied. By analyzing tumor and non-tumor tissues of 15 patients with HCC, it was confirmed that AKAP12 expr...
