Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome accompanied by invasive ductal carcinoma: a case report.

Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome accompanied by invasive ductal carcinoma: a case report. Eur J Gynaecol Oncol. 2016;37(5):744-746 Authors: Kasap E, Gene M, Sahin N, Sivrikoz ON Abstract Milllerian agenesis and the absence of organs of Millerian canal origin are referred to as Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome. Invasive ductal carcinoma constitutes 47-75% of all breast carcinomas and is the most common type. The authors report the first case of invasive ductal carcinoma associated with MRKH syndrome in the literature to their knowledge. A 25-year-old woman with a palpable mass in her right breast for three months presented to the presented clinic. On physical examination a mobile, firm mass measuring 2x2 cm was detected in right breast, at a region close to axilla. A fine needle aspiration biopsy from the lesion revealed malignant cells and thus a segmental mastectomy operation was performed. All genital tract and endocrinological system should be thoroughly examined before administering hormone replacement therapy to patients presenting with primary amenorrhea.The co-occurrence MRKH syndrome of with invasive ductal carcinoma is regarded as coincidental. Confirming the absence of a common etiology, however, requires further genetic studies. PMID: 29787025 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Liu J, Li J, He M, Zhang GL, Zhao Q Abstract BTLA/HVEM (B and T lymphocyte attenuator/herpes virus entry mediator) pathways play a critical role in T cell suppression in tumor. However, its dynamic changes in different T cell subsets in peripheral blood and their clinical significance are largely unclear in cancer patients. In the current study, we showed distinct changes of BTLA and HVEM expressions on peripheral blood CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); BTLA expression were significantly upregulated on circulating CD4+ but not CD8+ T cells. In sharp contrast, the levels...

Authors: Puglisi S, Perotti P, Cosentini D, Roca E, Basile V, Berruti A, Terzolo M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare tumor characterized by poor prognosis in most cases. Moreover, in most cases ACC produces an excess of adrenal steroid hormones with relevant clinical consequences. Areas covered: After an extensive literature search, this narrative review addresses diagnostic management, including hormonal, radiological and pathological assessment, and treatment, which should be directed toward both cancer and hormone related problems. While surgery is the first option in ACC without ev...

In this study, we compared the long-term side effects of proton radiation to equivalent doses of X-rays in the initiation and progression of premalignant lesions in a lung cancer susceptible mouse model (K-rasLA1). We show proton irradiation causes more complex DNA damage that is not completely repaired resulting in increased oxidative stress in the lungs both acutely and persistently. We further observed K-rasLA1 mice irradiated with protons had an increased number and size of initiated and premalignant lesions and adenomas that were often infiltrated with inflammatory cells. Proton irradiated mice had a lower median surv...

Authors: Silva VAO, Rosa MN, Tansini A, Oliveira RJS, Martinho O, Lima JP, Pianowski LF, Reis RM Abstract A large number of classic antineoplastic agents are derived from plants. Euphorbia tirucalli L. (Euphorbiaceae) is a subtropical and tropical plant, used in Brazilian folk medicine against many diseases, including cancer, yet little is known about its true anticancer properties. The present study evaluated the antitumor effect of the tetracyclic triterpene alcohol, euphol, the main constituent of E. tirucalli in a panel of 73 human cancer lines from 15 tumor types. The biological effect of euphol in pancreatic ...

Authors: Zhang S, Cai J, Xie W, Luo H, Yang F Abstract MicroRNA (miR)-202 has been reported to be involved in the regulation of human cancer progression including bladder cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. However, the function of miR-202 in prostate cancer remains largely unknown. The present study demonstrated that miR-202 was downregulated in human prostate cancer tissues and cell lines. And overexpression of miR-202 significantly inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of prostate cancer cells, but induced cell apoptosis. Moreover, miR-202 s...

Authors: Chen X, Cai S, Li B, Zhang X, Li W, Linag H, Cao X Abstract The aim of the present study was to identify the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in esophageal squamous-cellcarcinoma (ESCC) and provide potential therapeutic targets. The microarray dataset GSE20347 was downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, and included 17 tissue samples and 13 normal adjacent tissue samples from patients with ESCC. A total of 22,277 DEGs were identified. A heat map for the DEGs was constructed with the Morpheus online tool and the top 200 genes (100 upregulated and 100 downregulated) were selected for...
