Network Medicine-Based Analysis of Association Between Gynecological Cancers and Metabolic and Hormonal Disorders

Appl Biochem Biotechnol. 2021 Nov 25. doi: 10.1007/s12010-021-03743-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDifferent metabolic and hormonal disorders like type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), obesity, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have tangible socio-economic impact. Prevalence of these metabolic and hormonal disorders is steadily increasing among women. There are clinical evidences that these physiological conditions are related to the manifestation of different gynecological cancers and their poor prognosis. The relationship between metabolic and hormonal disorders with gynecological cancers is quite complex. The need for gene level association study is extremely important to find markers and predicting risk factors. In the current work, we have selected metabolic disorders like T2DM and obesity, hormonal disorder PCOS, and 4 different gynecological cancers like endometrial, uterine, cervical, and triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). The gene list was downloaded from DisGeNET database (v 6.0). The protein interaction network was constructed using HIPPIE (v 2.2) and shared proteins were identified. Molecular comorbidity index and Jaccard coefficient (degree of similarity) between the diseases were determined. Pathway enrichment analysis was done using ReactomePA and significant modules (clusters in a network) of the constructed network was analyzed by MCODE plugin of Cytoscape. The comorbid conditions like PCOS-obesity found to increase the risk factor of ovarian and triple ne...

AbstractAccurate staging and re-staging of cancer in children is crucial for patient management. Currently, children with a newly diagnosed cancer must undergo a series of imaging tests, which are stressful, time-consuming, partially redundant, expensive, and can require repetitive anesthesia. New approaches for pediatric cancer staging can evaluate the primary tumor and metastases in a single session. However, traditional one-stop imaging tests, such as CT and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, are associated with considerable radiation exposure. This is particularly concerning for children because they are more sensi...

Your heart rate is a measurement of the number of times per minute that your heart contracts or beats. Monitoring your heart rate is useful for tracking fitness and managing the risk factors of heart and circulatory diseases like diabetes. So, how do you measure your heart rate and what is a healthy heart rate?

ConclusionWe observed a significant reduction in mortality during the period 2008 –2017 in diabetes either as underlying cause of death or when all mentions of diabetes in the death certificate were considered.

The objective of this study is to explore the relationship between serum 25 ‐hydroxyvitamin-D(25-(OH)2D3) level and sweat function in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).MethodsA cross-sectional study of 1021 patients with T2DM who underwent 25-(OH)2D3 level detections and sweat function tests was carried out. These individuals were divided into deficient groups (n = 154 cases), insufficient groups (n = 593 cases) and sufficient groups (n = 274 cases). Spearman correlation analysis and multivariate stepwise linear regression analysis were implemented to determine the as...

AbstractPurposeAlthough the gut microbiota (GM) are associated with various diseases, their role in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) remains uncharacterized. Further study is urgently needed to expose the real relationship between GM and GDM.MethodsWe performed a prospective study in 33 pregnant Chinese individuals [15, GDM; 18, normal glucose tolerance (NGT)] to observe the fecal microbiota by 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing at 24 –28 weeks of gestational age after a standard 75 g oral glucose tolerance test. Linear regression analysis was employed to assess the relationships between the GM and GDM cl...

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of liraglutide/liraglutide  + metformin in overweight/obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).MethodsThe related literatures published until April 2021 were searched in PubMed, Cochrane Library, MEDLINE and EmBase.ResultsSix randomized controlled trials of 127 related articles were obtained through searching. Three articles compared liraglutide with metformin, and four articles compared liraglutide combined with metformin with metformin. Our meta-analysis suggests that liraglutide was superior to metformin only in w...

TYPE 1 diabetes causes blood sugar levels to become too high and can cause severe damage to the body if left untreated. Blood tests are the best way to diagnose suspected diabetes, but there are a few unusual symptoms that could be an early warning sign.
