"Identification and characterization of endometrial carcinoma with tumor markers HE4 and CA125 in serum and endometrial tissue samples and systematic review of the literature".

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Gynecology Oncology, Hospital Puerta de Hierro, Madrid, Spain.

Objective: The diagnosis of endometrial cancer is made by biopsy sampling with pathological analysis, but it is extremely important to make an accurate diagnosis in order to plan the specific treatment, and we suggest that HE4 in the endometrial tissue and in serum could be tools to make the diagnosis more precise.

Material And Methods: Our prospective study compared patients with endometrial cancer against non-endometrial cancer ones, matched with several variables. The inclusion criteria were females older than 18 years old that accepted to participate in the research study but that had never underwent surgery for other oncological pathologies, whether for ovarian, colon, cervical carcinoma or uterine sarcoma, and none of them had received preoperative chemo or radiotherapy; moreover, they could not have any severe renal or liver pathology.

Fatostatin reverses progesterone resistance by inhibiting the SREBP1-NF-κB pathway in endometrial carcinoma.

Cell Death Dis 2021 May 26;12(6):544. Epub 2021 May 26.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University, 250012, Jinan, China.

Progesterone resistance can significantly restrict the efficacy of conservative treatment for patients with endometrial cancer who wish to preserve their fertility or those who suffer from advanced and recurrent cancer. SREBP1 is known to be involved in the occurrence and progression of endometrial cancer, although the precise mechanism involved remains unclear. In the present study, we carried out microarray analysis in progesterone-sensitive and progesterone-resistant cell lines and demonstrated that SREBP1 is related to progesterone resistance. Read More

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Pathology, Yale-New Haven Hospital, Yale School of Medicine (L.I., K.E.F., V.P.) Department of Obstetrics and Reproductive Sciences, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven (V.P.) Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yale-New Haven Health, Bridgeport Hospital, Bridgeport, Connecticut (M.C.) Department of Pathology, University of California San Diego, San Diego, California (O.F.).

Patients with germline TP53 mutations are characterized by the occurrence of multiple early-onset malignancies. The characteristic syndrome is Li-Fraumeni syndrome (OMIM # 151623), an autosomal dominant disorder typified by premenopausal breast carcinoma, adrenal cortical tumors, bone and soft tissue sarcomas, leukemias, and tumors of the brain and spinal cord. Gynecologic malignancies are uncommonly reported in families harboring TP53 mutations, and the predominant tumor type reported is ovarian. Read More

Sentinel lymph node sampling as an alternative to lymphadenectomy in patients with endometrial cancer and obesity.

J Obstet Gynaecol Can 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Jewish General Hospital, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.; Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, affiliated with the Hebrew.

Objective: Although its use in endometrial cancer staging is relatively new, sentinel lymph node (SLN) sampling has been shown to be highly accurate and is associated with few complications. However, some studies report lower rates of detection with SLN sampling among patients with obesity. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the feasibility of SLN sampling in endometrial cancer for patients with obesity, and to determine whether omitting lymph node dissection (LND) in surgical staging using SLN sampling impacts oncologic outcomes.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University Sanhao Street, Shenyang, People's Republic of China.

Our previous study introduced the oncogenic role of the long non-coding RNA plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (PVT1) in endometrial cancer (EC). In this study, we aimed to construct a PVT1-centered competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network to outline a regulatory axis that might promote the malignant progression of advanced EC. Raw Uterine Corpus Endometrial Carcinoma (UCEC) datasets were collected from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and used for construction of the PVT1-centered ceRNA network. Read More

Phyllodes tumor of the vulva: A case report and literature review highlighting a novel manifestation of Cowden syndrome.

Gynecol Oncol Rep 2021 May 23;36:100752. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Section of Gynecologic Oncology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Cowden syndrome is a rare hereditary cancer syndrome characterized by a germline mutation which results in an increased risk of developing breast, thyroid, and endometrial carcinoma, as well as widespread benign hamartomas. Phyllodes tumor (PT) is a rare fibroepithelial tumor that accounts for less than 1% of all breast tumors. As mammary-type glands can be found in the anogenital region, PTs can rarely arise in this location. Read More

Aberrant Claudin-6-Adhesion Signaling Promotes Endometrial Cancer Progression via Estrogen Receptor α.

Mol Cancer Res 2021 Mar 16. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Department of Basic Pathology, Fukushima Medical University School of Medicine, Fukushima, Japan.

Cell adhesion proteins not only maintain tissue integrity, but also possess signaling abilities to organize diverse cellular events in a variety of physiologic and pathologic processes; however, the underlying mechanism remains obscure. Among cell adhesion molecules, the claudin (CLDN) family is often aberrantly expressed in various cancers, but the biological relevance and molecular basis for this observation have not yet been established. Here, we show that high CLDN6 expression accelerates cellular proliferation and migration in two distinct human endometrial cancer cell lines . Read More
