SharmaAbstractWith the advent of targeted therapies there was a paradigm shift in the treatment of metastatic adenocarcinoma of lung. Immuno-histopathology and molecular subtyping in metastatic adenocarcinoma lung have enabled personalized treatment for each patient. Oncogenic driver mutations in non-small cell lung cancer are commonly EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) gene mutation and ALK (Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase) gene rearran...

Cancers, Vol. 11, Pages 1590: EP4 and Class III β-Tubulin Expression in Uterine Smooth Muscle Tumors: Implications for Prognosis and Treatment Cancers doi: 10.3390/cancers11101590 Authors: Jocelyn Reader Amy K. Harper Teklu Legesse Paul N. Staats Olga Goloubeva Gautam G. Rao Amy Fulton Dana M. Roque The microtubule-stabilizing agent docetaxel in combination with gemcitabine represents one of the most effective regimens against the aggressive gynecologic tumor leiomyosarcoma (LMS). Upregulation of class III β-tubulin has previously been shown to confer taxane resistance in a variety of hu...

BOSTON (CBS) – Not only do IUDs prevent pregnancy, they may lower the risk of ovarian cancer in the women who use them. Researchers at the University of Colorado reviewed a dozen prior studies involving several thousand patients and found that women who used IUDs were up to 32-percent less likely than other women to develop ovarian cancer. It’s not clear why, but scientists found that the hormones released by some IUDs may block estrogen which help ovarian tumor glow. And having a foreign body in the uterus may trigger the immune system to help fight cancer. Birth control pills have also been linked to a lower ...

AbstractObjectivesTo investigate the prognostic value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in predicting clinical outcome in patients with cervical cancer after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT).MethodsWe enrolled 124 cervical cancer patients who received definitive CCRT and underwent 3  T-MRI before and 1 month after initiating treatment. The mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value was measured on the tumor and the changes in ADC percentage (ΔADCmean) between the two time points were calculated. The Cox proportion hazard model was used to evaluate the associations between imaging or clinical varia...

CONCLUSIONS: A new multicellular, scaffold-free endometrial organoid system was established that resembled physiology of the native endometrium. Excess androgens in PCOS promoted cell proliferation in endometrial organoids, revealing new mechanisms of PCOS-associated with risk of endometrial neoplasia.

ConclusionA small fraction of women undergoing UFE develop subsequent gynecologic malignancies. Women choosing uterine preservation with UFE should be counseled about the risk of developing gynecologic malignancies in the future, some of which may be preventable with hysterectomy.

ConclusionIn addition to clinical diagnosis, many demographic and health system factors are associated with use of robot-assistance for hysterectomy. This may indicate decreased access to the robot among underserved patient populations coupled with the capacity of large, urban facilities to make capital investments in robotic equipment.

ConclusionOur preliminary experience has demonstrated that with experienced laparoscopic skills, R-LESS with the da Vinci Si system is a feasible and safe surgical approach for performance of radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy with conventional robotic surgical instruments. Further studies with greater number of patients in multiple settings will help us to fully elucidate the role of da Vinci Si surgical system in single-site gynecologic surgery.
