Crosstalk between transforming growth factor- β3 and microRNA-29c in leiomyoma: are we stepping forward?

Uterine fibroids (UFs) are benign monoclonal neoplasms, representing the most common solid tumor of the female genital tract in reproductive-aged women. Despite the incidence being generally high worldwide (70% –80% in women by the age of 50 years), UFs affect ≤80% of women in some particular populations (African-American women). Furthermore, UFs are relative common in pregnancy and might negatively influence its outcomes (1). Uterine fibroids are generally asymptomatic; however, when symptoms occur, they might impair normal functioning and affect quality of life, most widely causing abnormal uterine bleeding and iron deficiency anemia, abdominal and pelvic pain, and compression to the surrounding organs thus urologic and gastrointestinal symptoms.

Abstract The effects of different physico-chemical parameters on sorption of protactinium (Pa) on three different iron oxides (goethite, hematite and magnetite) were studied. The sorption of Pa(V) on all the three iron oxides was low at pH 1, increased to ~ 90% at neutral pH and then decreased slightly above pH 9. Presence of humic acid increases the sorption of Pa(V) on iron oxides in acidic medium whereas sorption is reduced in basic medium. The classical methods like ionic strength, time and temperature dependent sorption studies have been used for the elucidation of the sorption mechanism of Pa(V) on...

CONCLUSIONS Despite the high contraceptive effectiveness of many hormonal and intrauterine reversible contraceptive methods, many HCPs, users and potential users are concerned mainly about side effects and safety of both hormonal and non-hormonal contraceptive methods, and there is scarce information about the many benefits that these methods offer beyond contraception.
