Early development of a gonadal tumor in a patient with mixed gonadal dysgenesis.

Arch Endocrinol Metab 2018 ;62(6):644-647

Grupo Interdisciplinar de Estudos da Determinação e Diferenciação do Sexo (GIEDDS), Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Estadual de Campinas (FCM-Unicamp), Campinas, SP, Brasil.

A gonadal tumor was diagnosed in the first months of life in a patient with genital ambiguity, a 45,X/46,XY karyotype, and mixed gonadal dysgenesis. Gonadal biopsies at the age of 3 months revealed dysgenetic testes and a gonadoblastoma on the right testis. Even though gonadal tumors are rare in childhood, this case indicates that prophylactic removal of dysgenetic gonads should be performed as early as possible, especially when the female sex is assigned to a patient with a Y-chromosome sequence.

The role of Cancer/Testis Antigens in Multiple Myeloma pathogenesis and their application in disease monitoring and therapy.

Crit Rev Oncol Hematol 2018 Dec 14;132:17-26. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Department of Medicine, University of Cape Town, South Africa.

A unique group of genes, encoding tumour associated antigens, known as the Cancer/Testis Antigens (CTAs), have been explored as novel markers of disease progression and as targets of immunotherapy in several cancers, including the haematological malignancy Multiple Myeloma (MM). This review aims to update the knowledge of CTA involvement in MM pathogenesis and how their potential as biomarkers for disease monitoring and targets of immunotherapy has been explored in the MM disease arena. Despite the initial promise of these antigens, their use as immunotherapy targets has not been successful, yet with a greater understanding of their role in disease pathogenesis they may still have a significant role to play as biomarkers of disease and therapeutic targets.

MRI of testicular malignancies.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 Nov 1. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Clinical Radiology, Medical School, University of Ioannina, University Campus, 45110, Ioannina, Greece.

Although testicular carcinoma represents approximately only 1% of solid neoplasms in men, it is the most common malignancy between young men. The two main histologic categories are testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs), including seminomas and nonseminomas, accounting for 90-95% of testicular neoplasms and sex cord-stromal tumors. Scrotal MRI, including a multiparametric protocol, has been proposed as a valuable supplemental imaging technique in the investigation of testicular pathology. Read More

Department of Surgery, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technische Universität München, Munich 81675, Germany.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a highly aggressive liver tumor containing cancer stem cells (CSCs), which participate in tumor invasion, therapeutic resistance, and tumor relapse leading to poor outcome and limited therapeutic options. Recently, a novel lncRNA, THOR (testis-associated highly conserved oncogenic long non-coding RNA), was characterized in human cancers and shown to exhibit an oncogenic role. However, the role of THOR in liver cancer stem cells (CSCs) remains obscure. Read More

Novel Strategies for Peptide-Based Vaccines in Hematological Malignancies.

Front Immunol 2018 1;9:2264. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Center for Cancer Immune Therapy, Herlev Hospital, Department of Hematology and Oncology, Herlev, Denmark.

Peptides vaccination is an interesting approach to activate T-cells toward desired antigens in hematological malignancies. In addition to classical tumor associated antigens, such as cancer testis antigens, new potential targets for peptide vaccination comprise neo-antigens including JAK2 and CALR mutations, and antigens from immune regulatory proteins in the tumor microenvironment such as programmed death 1 ligands (PD-L1 and PD-L2). Immunosuppressive defenses of tumors are an important challenge to overcome and the T cell suppressive ligands PD-L1 and PD-L2 are often present in tumor microenvironments. Read More

Malignant Sertoli cell tumor of the testis masquerading as seminoma with bone metastasis.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Oct-Dec;61(4):596-599

Department of Surgical Oncology, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, New Delhi, India.

Sex cord-stromal tumors of the testes are rare malignancies as compared to germ cell tumors. Pure Sertoli cell tumors are still rare representing <1% of testicular cancers and the malignant forms are too rare. Furthermore, the occurrence of metastasis in such cases is extremely rare with <30 cases reported in literature so far to the best of our knowledge. Read More

Pluripotent Very Small Embryonic-Like Stem Cells in Adult Testes - An Alternate Premise to Explain Testicular Germ Cell Tumors.

Stem Cell Rev 2018 12;14(6):793-800

Stem Cell Biology Department, ICMR-National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health, Jehangir Merwanji Street, Parel, Mumbai, 400 012, India.

Developmental exposure to endocrine disruptors has resulted in the increased incidence of infertility and testicular germ cell tumors (T2GCT) in young men residing in developed countries. Unlike T1GCT (infants and young children) and T3GCT (aged men), T2GCT arise from CIS/GCNIS that develops from pre-CIS. Pre-CIS represents undifferentiated, growth-arrested gonocytes that persist in fetal testes due to endocrine disruption. Read More

Epigenetic roles of PIWI‑interacting RNAs (piRNAs) in cancer metastasis (Review).

Oncol Rep 2018 Nov 6;40(5):2423-2434. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine Oncology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Harbin, Heilongjiang 150000, P.R. China.

P‑element‑induced wimpy testis (PIWI)‑interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are epigenetic‑related short ncRNAs that participate in chromatin regulation, transposon silencing, and modification of specific gene sites. These epigenetic factors or alterations are also involved in the growth of a variety of human cancers, including lung, breast, and colon cancer. Accumulating evidence has revealed that tumor metastasis and invasion involve genetic and epigenetic factors. Read More
