Experimental Pathology Unit, Department of Pathology, McGill University, Montreal, QC H3A 2B4, Canada.

Among a litany of malignancies affecting the female reproductive tract, that of the ovary is the most frequently fatal. Moreover, while the steady pace of scientific discovery has fuelled recent ameliorations in the outcomes of many other cancers, the rates of mortality for ovarian cancer have been stagnant since around 1980. Yet despite the grim outlook, progress is being made towards better understanding the fundamental biology of this disease and how its biology in turn influences clinical behaviour. Read More

Ultrasonographic and multimodal imaging of pediatric genital female diseases.

J Ultrasound 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Imaging, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital Research Institute, P.za S.Onofrio 4, Via Torre di Palidoro, Palidoro, Rome, Italy.

Ultrasonography is the first-line imaging modality in the evaluation of the female pelvis in childhood and adolescence, because it is easy to perform, non-invasive and it does not require sedation. The transabdominal approach is preferred in children and adolescents, after filling the bladder to move away the bowel loops from the pelvis. The probe frequency must be adapted to age, thickness of tissues and depth of the structures under examination. Read More

Reduced α-2,6 sialylation regulates cell migration in endometriosis.

Hum Reprod 2019 Mar;34(3):479-490

Département 'Développement, Reproduction et Cancer', Institut Cochin, INSERM U1016 (Professeur Batteux), Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité, 22 Rue Méchain, Paris, France.

Study Question: Is endometriosis associated with aberrant sialylation patterns and what is the potential impact of such anomalies on cell migratory properties?

Summary Answer: The reduced α-2,6 sialylation patterns in the peritoneal fluid of endometriosis-affected women and in stromal and epithelial cells from endometriotic lesions could be associated with enhanced cell migration.

What Is Known Already: Endometriosis is considered to be a benign disease although, like cancer, it has the characteristic of being an invasive disease with cells that have an enhanced capacity to migrate. Aberrant sialylation has been reported in various malignancies and it has been linked to tumour invasion and metastasis. Read More

Endometriosis biomarkers: Will co-development in academia-industry partnerships result in new and robust noninvasive diagnostic tests?

Biol Reprod 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Development and Regeneration, Biomedical Sciences Group, KU Leuven (University of Leuven), Belgium.

Endometriosis is an important gynecological disease, affecting 10% of reproductive age women, and associated with pain, infertility, reduced quality of life and high health economic cost. Except for ultrasound detection of ovarian endometriotic cysts, the gold standard for diagnosis is laparoscopy, leading to diagnostic delays of 5-10 years. Accurate noninvasive biomarkers are needed, especially for symptomatic women with a normal gynecological ultrasound, to triage them towards medical or surgical treatment and to monitor their treatment outcome.
