Long-Term Morbidity after Endometrial Cancer Surgery: a Comparison of Open vs. Robotic Approach

AbstractThis retrospective study is looking into the long-term morbidity after endometrial cancer staging surgery and compares the long-term morbidity of patients who underwent open staging surgery vs. robotic approach. One hundred twenty-nine patients who underwent staging surgery for endometrial cancer from January 2014 until June 2017 were included in the analysis. Morbidities occurring 1  month after surgery—vault complications, incisional hernias, vault dehiscence, and lymphedema—were looked into. There were no statistically significant differences between the long-term complications in both groups (vault infection 5.1% vs. 1.4%, vaginal cuff dehiscence 1.6% vs. 0%, incisional hernia 6.8% vs. 0%, and lymphedema 11.8% vs. 10% in open vs robotic groups respectively). But as far as clinical significance was concerned, patients who underwent robotic staging surgery had a significant decrease in vaginal cuff complications and incisional hernia. Our study shows that robotic-as sisted surgery can reduce even long-term morbidity in patients undergoing surgery for endometrial cancer.

CONCLUSIONS: EGFR expression is significantly higher in HPV positive IP. Stathmin is expressed by all IP tumour cells. Stathmin was also associated with dysplasia and a trend towards a correlation between stathmin positivity and recurrence was found. Stathmin and EGFR might therefore be considered therapeutic targets. PMID: 31710049 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: MethodsAuthor(s): Jennifer I. Brown, Brent D.G. Page, Adam FrankelAbstractProtein arginine N-methyltransferases (PRMTs) are a family of 9 enzymes that catalyze mono- or di-methylation of arginine residues using S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM). Arginine methylation is an important post-translational modification that can regulate the activity and structure of target proteins. Altered PRMT activity can lead to a variety of health issues including neurodevelopmental disease, autoimmune disorders, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Thus, developing a robust mechanistic ...

Abstract Despite the presence of methods evaluating drug resistance during chemotherapies, techniques, which allow for monitoring the degree of drug resistance in early chemotherapeutic stage from single cells in their native microenvironment, are still absent. Herein, we report an analytical approach that combines single cell mass spectrometry (SCMS) based metabolomics with machine learning (ML) models to address the existing challenges. Metabolomic profiles of live cancer cells (HCT-116) with different levels (i.e., no, low, and high) of chemotherapy-induced drug resistance were measured using the Single-probe S...

Abstract Platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) is currently used as a biomarker protein for cancer early diagnosis and clinical treatment. Herein, we reported a robust and enzyme-free strategy based on aptamer recognition and proximity-induced entropy-driven circuits (AR-PEDC) for homogeneous and rapid detection of platelet-derived growth factor BB (PDGF-BB) without any washing steps or thermocycling. The proximity probes specifically recognize target protein to form the completed trigger (CT). Then, the CT reacts with three-strand complex to form intermediate, which subsequently binds to fuel strand to rele...

First, we compared service receipt among continuing Medicaid enrollees pre- and post-ACA. We then compared receipt among new post-ACA Medicaid enrollees to receipt by continuing enrollees after ACA implementation. Using Medicaid enrollment and claims data, we identified well-woman visits, contraceptive counsel...
