Authors: Broggi G, Piombino E, Magro G, Vecchio GM Abstract Intestinal-type adenocarcinoma is a rare primary vaginal carcinoma and considerably more uncommon than metastatic lesions which represent the most frequent malignancy at this anatomic site. Among all malignant tumors, colorectal, breast and female genital tract carcinomas have the tendency to metastasize to the vagina. As morphologic and immunohistochemical features of intestinal-type adenocarcinoma occurring primarily in the vagina are not specific, clinical and radiologic information is crucial to exclude a metastatic lesion. Herein we present a ...

Authors: Paton DM Abstract Many women suffer from the genitourinary syndrome of the menopause (GSM), in particular pathological changes that occur in the vagina due to the reduction in their production of estrogens. TherapeuticsMD has developed Imvexxy, small softgel capsules that contain solubilized estradiol and that are inserted vaginally by women twice a week, every 3 to 4 days. These vaginal inserts have been found to readily supply estradiol to the vagina and to result in significant improvement in the GSM signs and symptoms these women had been experiencing. At the same time, pharmacokinetic studies have dem...

Clinical studies have confirmed epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) used in lung cancer patients with EGFR mutations can obtain a better result, but still part of the patients with poor efficacy. EGFR mutation is highly related to female, nonsmoking and adenocarcinoma. Thus, we hypothesize that estrogen and circulating HER-2/neu protein might influence the efficacy of EGFR-TKIs in EGFR mutant patients with non-small cell lung cancer. HER-2/neu expression level of 357 eligible patients in its peripheral serum was determined using ELISA. The median progression-free survival (PFS) in five...

AbstractBackgroundEvidence suggests that epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is closely related to coronary artery stenosis (CAS). However, sexual dimorphism may be present in adipose tissue, and its influence on CAS between men and women is controversial. We assessed the relationship between EAT and CAS by sex and menopausal status in patients with suspected angina.MethodsSix hundred twenty-eight consecutive patients (men/womenn = 257/371; mean age = 59.9 ± 10.2 years) who had chest pain for angina and underwent coronary angiography were included. CAS was defined as>  50% lu...
