BAG2-Mediated Inhibition of CHIP Expression and Overexpression of MDM2 Contribute to the Initiation of Endometriosis by Modulating Estrogen Receptor Status.

Front Cell Dev Biol 2020 27;8:554190. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Institute of Hematology, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China.

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent gynecological disease primarily affecting women of childbearing age, which gives rise to pelvic pain calling for multiple operations, and sometimes leading to infertility. However, the etiology of endometriosis remains poorly understood. In this study we investigated the roles of two Ubiquitin E3 Ligases, namely hsc70-interacting protein (CHIP) and mouse double minute 2 (MDM2), in the abnormal estrogenic activity in endometriosis.

Endometrial Tumor Classification by Histomorphology and Biomarkers in the Nurses' Health Study.

J Cancer Epidemiol 2021 12;2021:8884364. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA, USA 02115.

Objective: Endometrial cancers have historically been classified by histomorphologic appearance, which is subject to interobserver disagreement. As molecular and biomarker testing has become increasingly available, the prognostic significance and accuracy of histomorphologic diagnoses have been questioned. To address these issues for a large, prospective cohort study, we provide the results of a centralized pathology review and biomarker analysis of all incidental endometrial carcinomas occurring between 1976 and 2012 in the Nurses' Health Study.

Emerging progress on diagnosis and treatment of female genital tuberculosis.

J Int Med Res 2021 May;49(5):3000605211014999

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Jingzhou Chest Hospital, Jingzhou, Hubei, China.

Female genital tuberculosis (FGTB) is an infection caused by and usually occurs secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) through the blood circulation, lymph circulation, or direct spreading from abdominal TB. FGTB is an uncommon type of TB that can destroy genital organs, and lead to menstrual disorders and infertility. The diagnosis of FGTB is often made by detection of acid-fast bacilli under microscopy, culture with endometrial biopsy, or histopathological examination of epithelioid granuloma on a biopsy.

Construction and validation of nomograms for predicting the prognosis of grade 3 endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma cancers: a SEER-based study.

Bioengineered 2021 Dec;12(1):1752-1765

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, China.

Most cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC) are diagnosed early and have a good prognosis; however, grade 3 (G3) EACs have poor outcomes. We retrospectively analyzed the data of 11,519 patients with G3 EACs registered between 2004 and 2015 in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program database and constructed a nomogram to guide clinicians in decision-making and accurate prediction of the prognosis. The caret package was used to divide samples into a training set and a validation set. Read More

Vaginal mucositis related to immunotherapy in endometrial cancer.

Gynecol Oncol Rep 2021 May 31;36:100742. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, United States.

Immunotherapy, specifically immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPi), has revolutionized our approach to treating all solid tumors, including gynecologic malignancies. Compared to standard chemotherapy, the adverse events associated with immunotherapies, are often mild and localized, although more severe systemic responses can also occur. While dermatitisdermatitis is a most commonly reported side effect of ICPi therapy, cutaneous toxicities have a range of clinical manifestations and can provide a challenge in an otherwise favorable treatment protocol.

Resectoscopic Surgery Part I: Overcoming Obstacles and Mastering the Basics.

Morris Wortman

Surg Technol Int 2021 05 4;38. Epub 2021 May 4.

Clinical Associate Professor of Gynecology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York.

The introduction of the continuous flow gynecologic resectoscope (CFGR) in 1989 revolutionized minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) by introducing such intrauterine procedures as hysteroscopic myomectomy, polypectomy, and endometrial ablation. However, with the subsequent introduction of global endometrial ablation (GEA) devices and hysteroscopic morcellators (HMs), the CFGR has fallen into relative disuse-a regrettable situation since it remains ideally suited for accomplishing many procedures that are otherwise not achievable with these newer technologies. Procedures which involve greater precision and control-endomyometrial resection (EMR), hysteroscopic metroplasty, the correction of isthmoceles, the resection of intramural myomas, and the management of late-onset endometrial ablation failure-are only possible with the CFGR.

Reprod Sci 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

"Add-on" procedures are actively promoted on some fertility clinic websites as proven means to improve IVF success rates, especially for couples with repeated implantation/IVF failures. However, the actual contribution of these interventions to live birth rates remains inconclusive. At present, little is known about the type and quality of the information provided on the IVF clinics' websites regarding the merits of "add-ons. Read More

Tumor Signature Analysis Implicates Hereditary Cancer Genes in Endometrial Cancer Development.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Apr 7;13(8). Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Genetics and Computational Biology, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane 4006, Australia.

Risk of endometrial cancer (EC) is increased ~2-fold for women with a family history of cancer, partly due to inherited pathogenic variants in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. We explored the role of additional genes as explanation for familial EC presentation by investigating germline and EC tumor sequence data from The Cancer Genome Atlas ( = 539; 308 European ancestry), and germline data from 33 suspected familial European ancestry EC patients demonstrating immunohistochemistry-detected tumor MMR proficiency. Germline variants in MMR and 26 other known/candidate EC risk genes were annotated for pathogenicity in the two EC datasets, and also for European ancestry individuals from gnomAD as a population reference set ( = 59,095).
