Difficulties in diagnosis of a minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of uterine cervix diagnosed postoperatively: brief communication and literature review

ConclusionsMinimal deviation adenocarcinoma represents one of rare cervical adenocarcinomas without HPV-association. While it is crucial to differentiate benign from malignant lesions in this subtype, imaging characteristics often overlap and may not provide a specific diagnosis. Therefore, it should be considered in suspicious multicystic cervical lesions and inconclusive PAP-smear. Definitive diagnosis of this subtype should be based on cervical biopsy.

Abstract While radiotherapy is widely used in cancer treatment, the benefits can be limited by radiation-induced damage to neighboring healthy tissues. We previously demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory compound dimethylaminoparthenolide (DMAPT) selectively induces radiosensitivity in prostate tumor tissue from transgenic adenocarcinoma of mouse prostate (TRAMP), while simultaneously protecting healthy tissues from 6 Gy whole-body radiation-induced apoptosis. Here, we examined the radioprotective effect of DMAPT on fibrosis in normal tissues after a partial-body fractionated radiation protocol that more closely...

Abstract The combination of doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide commonly used to treat breast cancer can cause premature ovarian failure and infertility. α-Tocopherol is a potent antioxidant whereas γ-tocopherol causes apoptosis in a variety of cancer models in vitro including breast cancer. We hypothesised that the combination of doxorubicin (Dox) and 4-hydroperoxycyclophosphamide (4-Cyc) would be more cytotoxic in vitro than each agent alone, and that α-tocopherol would reduce and γ-tocopherol would augment the cytotoxicity of the combined chemotherapeutics. Human MCF-7 breast cancer and KGN...

Abstract Selenium is an essential trace element, the deficiency of which leads to the development of several serious diseases, including male infertility, prostate cancer, etc. It has been shown that oxidative stress contributes to the progression of prostate cancer, and antioxidants such as selenium and vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of this disease. Sodium selenite, one of the selenium compounds that induce the formation of reactive oxygen species, is considered as a potential anticancer agent. The SS concentrations that lead to a decrease in the viability of human prostate adenocarcinoma cells (lin...

Conclusion: These data indicate that TBBPA, triclosan, and BPA interact in vivo, consistent with evidence that TBBPA and triclosan inhibit enzymes that are critical for BPA and E2 metabolism. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1329 Received: 04 November 2016 Revised: 11 April 2017 Accepted: 13 April 2017 Published: 21 August 2017 Address correspondence to D. deCatanzaro, Dept. of Psychology, Neuroscience &Behaviour, McMaster University, 1280 Main St. West, Hamilton ON L8S 4K1, Canada.

This study used an establishedin vitro model of implantation to examine cellular and molecular interactions during blastocyst attachment to endometrial epithelial cells.PARTICIPANTS/MATERIALS, SETTING, METHODSMouse blastocysts developed from embryonic day (E) 1.5in vitro were hatched and co-cultured with confluent human endometrial adenocarcinoma-derived Ishikawa cells in serum-free medium. A scale of attachment stability based on blastocyst oscillation upon agitation was devised. Blastocysts were monitored for 48 h to establish the kinetics of implantation, and optical sectioning using fluorescence microscopy revealed att...

Conclusions It appears that APAs exhibit a significant recurrence rate and they may be related both to atypical endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial adenocarcinoma; therefore, clinicians should be aware of these lesions in order to individualize treatment according to the patent’s age and fertility history.
