Gastrointestinal stromal tumor leading to acute abdomen and hypovolemic shock in a trauma patient.

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2019 Jan;25(1):83-85

Department of General Surgery, İstanbul Medicine Hospital, İstanbul-Turkey.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are among the rare tumors of gastrointestinal (GI) tract. GISTs occur respectively in the stomach, small intestines, colon and rectum, omentum and mesentery, esophagus, retroperitoneal space, and abdominal cavity. However, they may occur anywhere along the GI tract. Read More

Impact of in vitro driven expression signatures of CD133 stem cell marker and tumor stroma on clinical outcomes in gastric cancers.

BMC Cancer 2019 Feb 4;19(1):119. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Cancer Research Institute, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: The CD133 transmembrane protein is a well-recognized stem cell marker that has been used to isolate putative cancer stem cell populations from gastric cancers (GCs). However, the molecular features or biomarkers underlying CD133 are largely unknown in GCs.

Methods: We performed gene expression profiling of CD133+ and CD133- cells sorted by flow cytometry from three GC cell lines to identify the CD133 expression signatures of GC. Read More

Approach to wild-type gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Transl Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 15;3:92. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) arise from the intestinal pacemaker cells of Cajal. Wild-type gastrointestinal stromal tumors (WT-GIST) are a unique and uncommon subtype of GISTs that lack activating mutations in the tyrosine kinase c-KIT or platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRA) receptors. The lack of these growth-stimulating mutations renders tyrosine kinase receptor inhibitors, such as imatinib mesylate, relatively ineffective against these tumors. Read More

Serum miR-518e-5p is a potential biomarker for secondary imatinib-resistant gastrointestinal stromal tumor.

J Biosci 2018 Dec;43(5):1015-1023

Department of Gastrointestinal and Nutriology Surgery, Affiliated Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang 110004, China.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumor of the intestinal tract. Imatinib is used as first-line therapy for GIST patients; however, secondary imatinib resistance poses a significant clinical challenge. Here, we analyzed serum miRNA expression profiles to identify specific serum miRNAs that could be used as early diagnostic markers. Read More

Laparoscopic management of giant gastrointestinal stromal tumor masquerading as infected mesenteric cyst.

Ann Ital Chir 2018 ;89:342-346

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common non-epithelial (mesenchymal) tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. Although GISTs appear as solid and well-circumscribed lesions in most patients, they may also appear as solid- cystic (mixed) or pure cystic lesions due to reasons like intra-tumor hemorrhage and necrosis in a very small percentage of patients. Hence, cystic GISTs mostly lead to a diagnostic dilemma. Read More

Objectives: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare tumors of gastrointestinal tract, prognosis of which largely depends upon histopathologic characteristics of resection specimens, which were not widely studied in our population. Therefore we aimed to evaluate the histopathologic characteristics of GISTs in our population and their prognostic grouping according to college of American pathologist's guidelines.

Results: Mean age of patients was 53. Read More

Electronic address:

Telomeres are repetitive sequences (TTAGGG) located at the end of chromosomes. Telomeres progressively shorten with each cell replication cycle, ultimately leading to chromosomal instability and loss of cell viability. Telomere length anomaly appears to be one of the earliest and most prevalent genetic alterations in malignant transformation. Read More

Department of Surgery, Iwate Prefectural Iwai Hospital, 17 Odaira, Kozenji, Ichinoseki, Iwate, 029-0192, Japan.

Introduction: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. The small intestine is the second-most frequent location where GISTs occur after the stomach. Attention should be paid to small intestinal GISTs because they infrequently present with acute abdomen, which necessitates emergency surgery. Read More

Mesenchymal MAPKAPK2/HSP27 drives intestinal carcinogenesis.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2018 06 29;115(24):E5546-E5555. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Immunology, Biomedical Sciences Research Centre "Alexander Fleming," 16672 Vari, Greece;

Mesenchymal cells in the microenvironment of cancer exert important functions in tumorigenesis; however, little is known of intrinsic pathways that mediate these effects. MAPK signals, such as from MAPKAPK2 (MK2) are known to modulate tumorigenesis, yet their cell-specific role has not been determined. Here, we studied the cell-specific role of MK2 in intestinal carcinogenesis using complete and conditional ablation of MK2. Read More

Department of Pathology, Harper University Hospital, Detroit Medical Center, 3990 John R Street, Detroit, MI 48201, USA.

Neoplasms of the small intestine are rare in comparison with colorectal tumors. The most common tumor types arising in the small intestine are adenocarcinomas, well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and lymphoma. Primary appendiceal neoplasms are rare and found in less than 2% of appendectomy specimens with an incidence of approximately 1. Read More

Heritage of Stanislaw Ciechanowski (1869-1945)-Discoverer of pathogenesis of prostatic hyperplasia-passionis insignia signis fulgent mirificis .

Prostate 2018 Sep 18;78(12):938-948. Epub 2018 May 18.

Department of General Pathomorphology, Medical University of Bialystok, Bialystok, Poland.

Background: Prostatic enlargement was first correctly recognized as a prostatic hyperplasia by professor of anatomic pathology, Stanisław Ciechanowski (1869-1945) in Cracow on contrary to Parisian urologist Jean Casimir Félix Guyon's concepts of progressing atherosclerosis as a morphological cause of prostatic overgrowth and mechanical insufficiency of lower urinary tract.

Methods: Primary resources were analyzed about Stanisław Ciechanowski mainly from depositories of the Section of Special Collection, Stanisław Konopka Main Medical Library Warsaw and Polish bibliograhy of Estreichers at Jagiellonian University.

Results: Professor of anatomic pathology, Stanisław Ciechanowski (1869-1945) was the first to state that chronic inflammation induced overgrowth of parenchymatous and stromal prostate components in course of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Read More

Nongastrointestinal Stromal Tumor Spindle Cell Sarcomas of the Colon or Rectum.

Am Surg 2018 Apr;84(4):570-575

Because of the low incidence of nongastrointestinal stromal tumor (non-GIST) spindle cell sarcomas of the colon or rectum, the clinical behavior and ideal surgical treatment of these tumors and patient outcomes are poorly defined. The purpose of this study was to characterize these tumors and to determine the best surgical approach. We identified 1056 patients with non-GIST spindle cell sarcomas of the colon or rectum (1998-2010) in the National Cancer Database and collected data for each patient that included patient and tumor characteristics, tumor site (colon vs rectum), surgery type, and outcomes.

Tissue-selective alteration of ethanolamine plasmalogen metabolism in dedifferentiated colon mucosa.

Biochim Biophys Acta Mol Cell Biol Lipids 2018 08 28;1863(8):928-938. Epub 2018 Apr 28.

Institut d'Investigació Sanitària Illes Balears (IdISBa, Health Research Institute of the Balearic Islands), Palma, Balearic Islands, Spain. Electronic address:

Human colon lipid analysis by imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) demonstrates that the lipid fingerprint is highly sensitive to a cell's pathophysiological state. Along the colon crypt axis, and concomitant to the differentiation process, certain lipid species tightly linked to signaling (phosphatidylinositols and arachidonic acid (AA)-containing diacylglycerophospholipids), change following a rather simple mathematical expression. We extend here our observations to ethanolamine plasmalogens (PlsEtn), a unique type of glycerophospholipid presenting a vinyl ether linkage at sn-1 position. Read More
