Many papers and reviews have described the changes of the cervix during pregnancy, cervical cancer, sexually transmitted infections, and cervicovaginal microbiota. In this Views and Reviews, we focus on some specific topics in relation to the uterine cervix and infertility: early cervical cancer and fertility sparing surgery, cesarean scar defect, cervical incompetence, and cervical m üllerian anomalies.

o Ernesto de Carvalho The research of natural products has allowed for the discovery of biologically relevant compounds inspired by plant secondary metabolites, which contributes to the development of many chemotherapeutic drugs used in cancer treatment. Psidium guajava leaves present a diverse phytochemical composition including flavonoids, phenolics, meroterpenoids, and triterpenes as the major bioactive constituents. Guajadial, a caryophyllene-based meroterpenoid, has been studied for potential anticancer effects tested in tumor cells and animal experimental models. Moreover, guajadial has been reported to have a me...

AbstractBackgroundTumor marker screening may be useful to evaluate tumor response and detect tumor recurrence. However, usefulness and cut-off value of squamous-cell carcinoma antigen (SCC-Ag) for recurrence and survival has not yet established in cervical cancer.MethodsFrom January 2010 to October 2016, 304 patients with cervical squamous-cell carcinomas with FIGO stage IB-IVA who underwent curative chemoradiotherapy followed by brachytherapy at four institutions were included in this study. Serum SCC-Ag level was measured before treatment, re-measured after completion of treatment, and again at the time of relapse during...

Microsatellites are repeats of 1- to 6-bp units, and approximately 10 million microsatellites have been identified across the human genome. Microsatellites are vulnerable to DNA mismatch errors and have thus been used to detect cancers with mismatch repair deficiency. To reveal the mutational landscape of microsatellite repeat regions at the genome level, we analyzed approximately 20.1 billion microsatellites in 2717 whole genomes of pan-cancer samples across 21 tissue types. First, we developed a new insertion and deletion caller (MIMcall) that takes into consideration the error patterns of different types of microsatelli...

AbstractOvarian function after hysterectomy is a subject of much controversy since many years. There is increasing awareness among gynecologists that the ovaries need to be spared at hysterectomy for benign conditions. However the awareness is limited, and many practitioners believe in removal of ovaries at hysterectomy. Removal of ovaries will save lives of patients at risk of developing ovarian cancer. But it will be unnecessary for low-risk women and will in fact endanger their lives by increasing cardiac risks. Recent data suggest that ovarian epithelial cancer arises from tubal epithelium, which adds new option of per...
