A review and case report of enigmatic superficial endometrial spread of cancer of the uterine cervix: Need for vigilance in the primary care setting
J Family Med Prim Care. 2021 Sep;10(9):3505-3510. doi: 10.4103/jfmpc.jfmpc_39_21. Epub 2021 Sep 30.ABSTRACTCervical cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality. It usually spreads via direct invasion and lymphatics. Few cases with superficial spread to the uterine endometrium, fallopian tubes, and ovaries have been observed. The staging of these cases, as well as management, is not yet clear due to limited data. The Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging disregards uterine spread to upstage the disease, and it also fails to provide clear guidelines regarding the superficial extension to the ovaries and tubes which is not uncommon in these cases. A 63-year-old female with postmenopausal bleeding was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on a pap smear. Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a predominant endometrial lesion. Histopathology after Wertheim's hysterectomy revealed a squamous cell carcinoma of the endocervix, stage 1B2, that had spread superficially to the endometrium. A total of 48 cases of cervical cancer with superficial spread were identified. The commonest complaint was postmenopausal bleed in 39.39%. In 50% of the cases, the disease was carcinoma in situ, and 70.45% of the women had disease of stage 1B or less. In many cases, the disease had reached the tubes, 36.66%, and ovaries 23.33%. All women with stage 2A or lesser disease except for one were alive at 6 months after surgery. Superficial spread of cerv...

AbstractPurposeGenetic variants may influence the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) of cyclophosphamide (CY). CY plays a critical role in conditioning chemotherapy for hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), but its use is limited by toxicity. We explored the effect of genetic variants, potentially affecting PKPD of CY, and outcomes after HCT.MethodsThis observational pharmacogenomic study included 85 adults with hematologic malignancies who received reduced intensity conditioning with CY, fludarabine, and total body irradiation. We collected recipient DNA prior to HCT and evaluated 97 candidate variants in 66...

ConclusionsDecompression using a SEMS as the BTS may improve oncological outcomes over those achieved by a TDT in patients with left-sided stage II and III OCRC.
AbstractPurposePrevious studies have reported that sarcopenia increases the risk of postoperative complications following colorectal resection. This retrospective study assessed the postoperative complications of rectal resection associated with sarcopenia.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed 262 patients who underwent curative low anterior resection for primary rectal cancer from January 2008 to May 2020 at our institution. The patients were divided into a sarcopenia group (normalized total psoas muscle area
ConclusionsBTC may develop later in children with CBD and in adults with PBM, via HDAC and AID expression and through epigenetic and genetic regulation.
ConclusionsThe risk of perioperative thrombosis in UC patients was considered similar to that in CRC, so active thromboprophylaxis should be administered to UC patients while paying attention to bleeding.Trial registrationThis study was registered with the Japanese Clinical Trials Registry as UMIN000042004 (http://www.umin.ac.jp/ctr/index.htm).
AbstractBackgroundIn addition to the direct power of anticancer drugs, the effectiveness of anticancer therapy depends on the host immune function. The present study investigated whether or not the reduction rate and histological response of preoperative chemotherapy were related to the immune microenvironment surrounding a primary tumor of the rectum.MethodsSixty-five patients received preoperative chemotherapy followed by resection from 2012 to 2014; all of these patients were retrospectively analyzed. CD3, CD8, and FoxP3 were immunohistochemically examined as markers for T lymphocytes, cytotoxic T lymphocytes, and regul...
