MiR-378b Modulates -Induced Upper Genital Tract Pathology.

Pathogens 2021 May 7;10(5). Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry & Immunology, Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30310, USA.

Genital infection causes severe reproductive pathologies such as salpingitis and pelvic inflammatory disease that can lead to tubal factor infertility. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are evolutionarily conserved regulators of mammalian gene expression in development, immunity and pathophysiologic processes during inflammation and infection, including infection. Among the miRNAs involved in regulating host responses and pathologic outcome of infection, we have shown that miR-378b was significantly differentially expressed during primary infection and reinfection.

Laboratory of Histology-Embryology, School of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 54124 Thessaloniki, Greece.

We report an extremely unusual finding discovered incidentally during a routine pathologic evaluation of a fallopian tube, surgically removed on the grounds of ectopic pregnancy. We came across a minute yellowish nodule situated within the wall of the salpinx, which corresponded to ectopic adrenal cortex, as verified by microscopical examination, and coexisted with salpingitis isthmica nodosa. A research of the available English literature on this subject confirmed the rareness of the entity we encountered. Read More

Characterizing avian pathogenic (APEC) from colibacillosis cases, 2018.

PeerJ 2021 4;9:e11025. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Department of Population Health, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA.

Colibacillosis caused by avian pathogenic (APEC) is a devastating disease of poultry that results in multi-million-dollar losses annually to the poultry industry. Disease syndromes associated with APEC includes colisepticemia, cellulitis, air sac disease, peritonitis, salpingitis, omphalitis, and osteomyelitis among others. A total of 61 APEC isolates collected during the Fall of 2018 (Aug-Dec) from submitted diagnostic cases of poultry diagnosed with colibacillosis were assessed for the presence of 44 virulence-associated genes, 24 antimicrobial resistance genes and 17 plasmid replicon types.

Ovarian cancer risk after salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy or hydrosalpinx: results of the OCASE nationwide population-based database study.

Hum Reprod 2021 01;36(1):211-218

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Catharina Cancer Institute, Catharina Hospital, Eindhoven 5623EJ, The Netherlands.

Study Question: What is the effect of salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy or hydrosalpinx at a young age on ovarian cancer risk compared to no salpingectomy for any reason?

Summary Answer: We found no significant reduction in ovarian cancer risk after salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy or hydrosalpinx.

What Is Known Already: Salpingectomy may reduce ovarian cancer incidence, although the lag-time between intervention and therapeutic effect remains to be elucidated.

Study Design, Size, Duration: This nationwide population-based database study uses the Dutch pathology database to identify all women who underwent salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy or hydrosalpinx between January 1990 and December 2012 and compared ovarian cancer incidence to a control group of women who had a benign dermal nevus removed, matched for age at the time and year of procedure.

mSystems 2020 Oct 13;5(5). Epub 2020 Oct 13.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, USA

The obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen is reliant on a developmental cycle consisting of two cell forms, termed the elementary body (EB) and the reticulate body (RB). The EB is infectious and utilizes a type III secretion system and preformed effector proteins during invasion, but it does not replicate. The RB replicates in the host cell but is noninfectious.

Suppression of Chlamydial Pathogenicity by Nonspecific CD8 T Lymphocytes.

Infect Immun 2020 09 18;88(10). Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas, USA

, a leading infectious cause of tubal infertility, induces upper genital tract pathology, such as hydrosalpinx, which can be modeled with infection in mice. Following inoculation, wild-type mice develop robust hydrosalpinx, but OT1 mice fail to do so because their T cell receptors are engineered to recognize a single ovalbumin epitope (OVA). These observations have demonstrated a critical role of -specific T cells in chlamydial pathogenicity. Read More

Edward D McCoul

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2021 01 14;164(1):188-190. Epub 2020 Jul 14.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

The infratemporal fossa (ITF) sign, in which a patient points to a characteristic location below the auricle, is proposed as an indicator of nonobstructive eustachian salpingitis. A preliminary study included patients with a complaint of aural discomfort who were prompted to localize symptoms using a single finger. Read More

ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Female Infertility.

J Am Coll Radiol 2020 May;17(5S):S113-S124

Specialty Chair, University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The most common known causes of female infertility are male factor (26%), ovulatory failure (21%), and tubal damage (14%), while in 28% a couple's infertility remains unexplained. Female-specific causes of infertility include deterioration of oocyte quality with increasing maternal age; ovulatory disorders, most notably polycystic ovarian syndrome; history of salpingitis such as that caused by chlamydia infection; endometriosis; and uterine cavity abnormalities interfering with implantation causing inability to become pregnant or causing recurrent pregnancy loss. These potential causes of female infertility are discussed in this document and the appropriate imaging recommendations for each variant are provided. Read More
