Perilipin 1 Expression Differentiates Liposarcoma from Other Types of Soft Tissue Sarcoma.

Perilipin 1 Expression Differentiates Liposarcoma from Other Types of Soft Tissue Sarcoma. Am J Pathol. 2019 May 21;: Authors: Straub BK, Witzel HR, Pawella LM, Renner M, Eiteneuer E, Hashani M, Schirmacher P, Roth W, Mechtersheimer G Abstract Lipid droplets, a morphological feature of adipocytic tumors, are strongly regulated by associated proteins of the perilipin/PAT-family. So far, the use of perilipins as markers for differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors has only been studied in a few cases. The aim of the study was to investigate the expression of perilipins in 478 human soft tissue tumors as well as 60 respective normal tissues. All cases of well differentiated liposarcoma, over 90% of myxoid round cell liposarcoma and over 70% of pleomorphic liposarcoma, yet only in the well differentiated components of dedifferentiated liposarcoma were immunohistochemically positive for perilipin 1. All other types of soft tissue sarcoma were negative for perilipin 1. Perilipin 2 was more prominent in dedifferentiated and pleomorphic liposarcoma and nearly all other especially high-grade sarcoma. In well differentiated liposarcoma, lipoma or normal adipose tissue, perilipin 2 was virtually absent. In addition, long-term stimulation of adipogenesis in the liposarcoma cell line LiSa-2 restored perilipin 1 expression as exhibited in the source tumor. Furthermore, knock-down of perilipin 2 or 3 in LiSa-2 cells influenced lipid droplet number and size as well ...

hi Fujiwara Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) is widely and frequently used as a virus vector in cancer gene therapy and oncolytic virotherapy. Oncolytic virotherapy is a novel antitumor treatment for inducing lytic cell death in tumor cells without affecting normal cells. Based on the Ad5 genome, we have generated three types of telomerase-specific replication-competent oncolytic adenoviruses: OBP-301 (Telomelysin), green fluorescent protein (GFP)-expressing OBP-401 (TelomeScan), and tumor suppressor p53-armed OBP-702. These viruses drive the expression of the adenoviral E1A and E1B genes under the control of the hTERT (hum...

A RARE CASE OF GIANT INTRAPERITONEAL LIPOMA IN PATIENT WITH NODULAR FASCIITIS: IMAGE 18F-FDG PET / CT. J Nucl Med Technol. 2019 Apr 24;: Authors: Ibañez Ibañez MJ, Reyes Marles RR, Frutos Esteban L, Claver Valderas MA Abstract Nodular fasciitis is a benign reactive proliferation of myofibroblasts but sometimes misdiagnosed as sarcoma based on cellularity, mitotic figures and rapid growth. On the other hand, giant intraperitoneal lipomas are very rare cases and most of them are reported as liposarcoma because their large size; although liposarcoma is only 0.1% of all human neoplasms, is th...

Authors: Fricke A, Cimniak AFV, Ullrich PV, Becherer C, Bickert C, Pfeifer D, Heinz J, Stark GB, Bannasch H, Braig D, Eisenhardt SU Abstract BACKGROUND: Liposarcoma constitute about 13% of all soft tissue sarcoma and are associated with a high risk of metastases. As the preoperative differentiation between benign and malign lipomatous tumors is restricted to magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and biopsy, we performed a miRNA array to distinguish dedifferentiated liposarcoma patients from healthy controls and lipoma patients. METHODS: Blood samples of patients with dedifferentiated liposarcoma, heal...

Authors: Edagawa M, Haratake N, Shimamatsu S, Toyozawa R, Nosaki K, Hirai F, Yamaguchi M, Taguchi K, Kaneko K, Seto T, Takenoyama M, Ichinose Y Abstract Liposarcomas are the most common type of mesenchymal neoplasm in soft tissue sarcomas. Although they frequently develop at the lower limbs or retroperitoneum, cases arising from the mediastinum are rare. Furthermore, the incidence of the inflammatory subtype of well-differentiated liposarcoma is known to be low. We experienced a case of a middle mediastinal liposarcoma in a 68-year-old woman. The tumor, which was completely resected, was 92 mm in diameter. The tumo...

Aim: To establish the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in distinguishing between benign and malignant lipomatous tumors; to evaluate the reproducibility of the MRI interpretation assessing the agreement between judgments of two radiologists with the same experience in soft-tissue sarcomas; to identify an association among MRI findings (size, depth, septa, nodules, signal homogeneity) and nature of the lesion. Materials and Methods: A total of 54 patients (28 men and 26 women), with a mean age of 56 (range=27-84) were included years. All subjects followed-up by the Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Group. The following ...
