Pediatr Blood Cancer 2019 Apr 11:e27753. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, University of North Carolina Children's Hospital, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Ovarian angiosarcoma is a rare and aggressive vascular tumor, which has a 5-year overall survival of less than 30% for patients with nonmetastatic disease and almost certain death within 1 year for those with metastasis. Here, we briefly review historical approaches to therapy and present a long-term survivor in the case of an 11-year-old female with metastatic ovarian angiosarcoma. This is the second reported case to utilize heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy in the treatment of this disease. Read More

Loss of atrx cooperates with p53-deficiency to promote the development of sarcomas and other malignancies.

PLoS Genet 2019 Apr 10;15(4):e1008039. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Pediatric Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, United States of America.

The SWI/SNF-family chromatin remodeling protein ATRX is a tumor suppressor in sarcomas, gliomas and other malignancies. Its loss of function facilitates the alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT) pathway in tumor cells, while it also affects Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) silencing of its target genes. To further define the role of inactivating ATRX mutations in carcinogenesis, we knocked out atrx in our previously reported p53/nf1-deficient zebrafish line that develops malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors and gliomas.

Anastomosing Hemangioma: Short Review of a Benign Mimicker of Angiosarcoma.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

From the Department of Pathology, Medical School, University of Crete, Voutes, Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

Anastomosing hemangioma is a rare neoplastic vascular lesion, histologically mimicking angiosarcoma. It is predominantly composed of irregularly anastomosing sinusoidal-like spaces lined by endothelial cells with minimal atypia, a frequently hobnail morphology, and minimally invasive margins. Since its original description in the genitourinary system, an increasing number of anastomosing hemangiomas have been reported, localized deep in the body in various organs, always with similar histologic features.

Canine spindle cell mammary tumor (CSCMT) is an infrequent canine mammary tumor (CMT) composed of spindle or fusiform cells, which represents a challenge for pathologists and clinicians. Mammary tumors submitted for histopathology from 1998 to 2013 and compatible with CSCMTs were retrospectively selected. The tumors were diagnosed based on the hematoxylin and eosin (HE)-stained section; malignant tumors were graded using a canine soft tissue sarcoma grading scheme and a canine mammary tumor grading scheme, and they were further assigned a diagnosis based on immunohistochemistry (IHC) for pancytokeratin, cytokeratin 14, p63, calponin, vimentin, Ki-67, CD31, desmin, myosin, smooth muscle actin, glial fibrillary acidic protein, and S-100.

Use of computed tomography and radiation therapy planning software to develop a novel formula for body surface area calculation in dogs.

J Vet Intern Med 2019 Mar 5;33(2):792-799. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri.

Background: Body surface area (BSA) can reflect metabolic rate that might normalize dosing of chemotherapeutics across widely variable weights within a species. The current BSA formula for dogs lacks height, length, and body condition.

Hypothesis: Computed tomography (CT) imaging will allow inclusion of morphometric variables in allometric modeling of BSA in dogs resulting in an improved formula for BSA estimation. Read More
