WHO has launched a Global Initiative to scale up preventive, screening, and treatment interventions to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem during th...

Authors: Loharamtaweethong K, Vinyuvat S, Thammasiri J, Chitpakdee S, Supakatitham C, Puripat N Abstract Cervical cancer has become a leading cause of death in both HIV-infected and uninfected women. Previous studies have revealed that antiretroviral therapy (ART) possesses anti-human papillomavirus (HPV) and antitumour properties, potentially serving as an anticancer agent and improving functional immunity in HIV-positive individuals. However, to the best of our knowledge, no studies have examined the association between ART and the clinical outcome of patients with pre-existing invasive cervical cancer. The curre...

Eighty-nine patients who were diagnosed with hypopharyngeal cancer in Qilu Hospital of Shandong University (Qingdao) from January 2014 to June 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Sixty-eight patients were diagnosed with hypopharyngeal cancer with cervical lymph node metastasis by pathological sections. Twenty-one patients did not have cervical lymph node metastasis. All the patients were diagnosed by palpat...

Reverse transcription-quantitative PCR was used to determine the mRNA expression levels of ZIC1 in 569 fresh-frozen biopsy tissues, and immunohistochemistry was performed to detect ZIC1 protein expression in 80 CSCC tissues and 320 cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (...

Authors: Zhang X, Wang Y Abstract Gynecological cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in women. However, the mechanisms underlying gynecological cancer progression have remained largely unclear. In the present study, 799 dysregulated genes were identified in ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma (OV), 488 dysregulated genes in cervical squamous cell carcinoma and endocervical adenocarcinoma (CESC), and 621 dysregulated genes in uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma (UCEC). Bioinformatics analysis revealed that mRNA splicing and cell proliferation-associated biological processes served important roles in OV pro...

The long noncoding RNA FTH1P3 promotes the proliferation and metastasis of cervical cancer through microRNA‑145. Oncol Rep. 2019 Nov 20;: Authors: Lv R, Zhang QW Abstract Emerging evidence has revealed that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play crucial roles in the development and progression of tumors. The present study aimed to examine the roles and illustrate the underlying mechanisms of lncRNA ferritin heavy chain 1 pseudogene 3 (FTH1P3) in cervical cancer. The expression of lncRNA FTH1P3 and microRNA‑145 (miRNA‑145 or miR‑145) in human cervical cancer samples and cervical cancer cell lines wa...
