Human Papilloma Virus Infection and Anal Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions

This article addresses the natural history of the human papilloma virus (HPV) infection to anal squamous intraepithelial lesions, and onto squamous cell carcinoma of the anus. This article provides overviews of the virology, pathophysiology, nomenclature, classification, historical terms, risk factors, clinical evaluation, differential diagnosis, and treatment of HPV infection and its sequelae.

Here, we demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, dose and laser intensity dependent PTT potential of small, spherical, 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane coated cationic superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (APTMS@SPIONs) in aqueous solutions upon irradiation at 795 nm. Indocyanine gr...

Abstract An accurate profiling of the genomic landscape is mandatory to establish the best clinical and therapeutic approach for patients with solid malignancies. Moreover, tumor cells constantly adapt to external pressures-i.e., systemic treatment-with the selection and expansion of resistant subclones and the emergence of heterogeneous overlapping genomic alterations of resistance. The current standard for molecular characterization in cancer is the performance of a tissue tumor biopsy at the time of diagnosis and, when possible, a re-biopsy at the time of progression. However, tissue biopsy is not always feasib...

Abstract The classification of human cancers has traditionally relied on the tissue of origin, the histologic appearance and anatomical extent of disease, otherwise referred to as grade and stage. However, this system fails to explain the highly variable clinical behaviour seen for any one cancer. Molecular characterization through techniques such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) has led to an appreciation of the extreme genetic heterogeneity that underlies most human cancers. Because of the difficulties associated with fresh tissue biopsy, interest has increased in using circulating tumour material, such as ci...

Publication date: Available online 12 October 2019Source: The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Laura Tatiana Pelegrina, Myriam LaconiAbstractOvarian carcinoma is one of the most common cause of death by gynecologic cancer. Several epidemiological and in vitro studies have shown controversial data about progesterone effects in ovarian cancer. Progesterone can be converted in its active metabolite, allopregnanolone, its effects in ovarian cancer are still unknown. Previously, we demonstrated that allopregnanolone modifies ovarian morphophysiology, being able to alter critical process of tumor d...

Clinics in Colon and Rectal Surgery 2018; 31: 347-352 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1668104Anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) is the premalignant condition of the anal squamous tissue. It is associated with the human papilloma virus and is considered the transition prior to the invasive anal squamous cell carcinoma. It is typically asymptomatic and can be either an incidental finding after anorectal surgery or identified when high-risk patient populations are screened. Once AIN is diagnosed, the optimal management remains controversial, partly because the natural history of the disease is unclear. Surgical management of the diseas...
