emichi Watari Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are covalently closed, endogenous non-coding RNAs and certain circRNAs are linked to human tumors. Owing to their circular form, circRNAs are protected from degradation by exonucleases, and therefore, they are more stable than linear RNAs. Many circRNAs have been shown to sponge microRNAs, interact with RNA-binding proteins, regulate gene transcription, and be translated into proteins. Mounting evidence suggests that circRNAs are dysregulated in cancer tissues and can mediate various signaling pathways, thus affecting tumorigenesis, metastasis, and remodeling of the tumor microenv...
Conclusions: Patients with OC and CC with shorter lymphocyte telomeres have significantly reduced survival; therefore, the peripheral blood lymphocyte telomere length is a prognostic biomarker in OC and CC.
ConclusionWe introduced a novel classification system for ovarian metastases originating from colorectal cancer, which may be beneficial for assessing ovarian metastases from colorectal cancer and avoiding unnecessary surgery due to misdiagnosis of primary ovarian tumors.

Calster B, Timmerman D Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe the ultrasound features of different endometrial and other intracavitary pathologies in pre- and postmenopausal women presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding using the International Endometrial Tumor Analysis (IETA) terminology. METHODS: Prospective observational multicenter study of 2856 consecutive women presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding. Unenhanced ultrasonography with color Doppler was performed in all cases and fluid instillation sonography in 1857. Endometrial sampling was performed according to each center's local protocol. In 2216 ...
In this study, we aim to investigate whether the oncologic outcomes of grade 2 endometrioid endometrial carcinomas trend towards grade 1 or 3 tumors. Patients' records and pathological reports were reviewed retrospectively and eligible patients with endometrioid endometrial carcinoma were determined and distributed into 3 groups according to their 1988 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) grade. Groups' characteristics and oncologic outcomes were compared. Differences between grades were tested with z-test and adjusted by Bonferroni method. Kaplan-Meier method was performed for the survival analysis...
Conclusions: hsa_circRNA_402632, hsa_circRNA_008636, and hsa_circRNA_405481 may be potential diagnostic markers for central nervous system infection after neurological surgery. PMID: 32461970 [PubMed - in process]
