These glands consist of cells that secrete mucus, enzymes, HYDROCHLORIC ACID, or hormones.
One of the mechanisms by which CELL DEATH occurs (compare with NECROSIS and AUTOPHAGOCYTOSIS). Apoptosis is the mechanism responsible for the physiological deletion of cells and appears to be intrinsically programmed.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Borrmann's type IV gastric cancer: clinicopathologic analysis. (1/66)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether there is a specific pattern of clinicopathological features that could distinguish Borrmann's type IV gastric cancer from other types of gastric cancer. DESIGN: A retrospective study of patients with advanced gastric cancer treated between 1985 and 1995. SETTING: The Department of Surgery, Sendai National Hospital, a 716-bed teaching hospital. PATIENTS: The clinicopathologic features of 88 patients with Borrmann's type IV carcinoma of the stomach were reviewed from the database of gastric cancer. The results were compared with those of 309 patients with other types of gastric carcinoma. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Gender, age, tumour size, depth of invasion, histologic type, cancer-stromal relationship, histologic growth pattern, nodal involvement, lymphatic and vascular invasion, type of operation, cause of death and 5-year survival. RESULTS: Women were afflicted as commonly as men in the Borrmann's type IV group. These patients tended to be younger and to have larger tumours involving the entire stomach than patients with other types of cancer. Histologic type was commonly diffuse and scirrhous, and serosal invasion was prominent with infiltrative growth. Nodal involvement and lymphatic invasion were more common in patients with Borrmann's type IV than in those with other types of gastric cancer. The disease was advanced in most instances and a total gastrectomy was performed in 55% of the patients. The survival rate of patients with Borrmann's type IV tumour was lower than for patients with other types of gastric cancer (p < 0.005, log-rank test). CONCLUSIONS: In Borrmann's type IV gastric cancer, early detection and curative resection are crucial to extend the patient's survival. Aggressive postoperative chemotherapy is recommended when a noncurative resection is performed.  (+info)

Scirrhous cancer of the stomach which survived for more than five years after neoadjuvant chemotherapy with UFT (uracil and tegafur) and cisplatin. (2/66)

A 68-year-old man was diagnosed as having a scirrhous cancer of the stomach. Carcinomatous peritonitis was suspected on abdominal CT examination. Three courses of uracil and tegafur (UFT)/cisplatin (CDDP) chemotherapy were administered. The primary foci were reduced in size, then total gastrectomy was performed. Histological findings revealed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with scirrhous invasion into the subserosa. Histological efficacy of the chemotherapy was judged to be grade 2. The patient has been alive without disease for more than five years after total gastrectomy. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy with UFT and CDDP may have contributed to the favorable clinical outcome in this patient.  (+info)

Differential gene expression profiles of scirrhous gastric cancer cells with high metastatic potential to peritoneum or lymph nodes. (3/66)

Scirrhous gastric cancer is often accompanied by metastasis to the peritoneum and/or lymph nodes, resulting in the highest mortality rate among gastric cancers. Mechanisms involved in gastric cancer metastasis are not fully clarified because metastasis involves multiple steps and requires the accumulation of altered expression of many different genes. Thus, independent analysis of any single gene would be insufficient to understand all of the aspects of gastric cancer metastasis. In this study, we performed global analysis on differential gene expression of a scirrhous gastric cancer cell line (OCUM-2M) and its derivative sublines with high potential for metastasis to the peritoneal cavity (OCUM-2MD3) and lymph nodes (OCUM-2MLN) in a nude mice model. By applying a high-density oligonucleotide array method, expression of approximately 6800 genes was analyzed, and selected genes were confirmed by the Northern blot method. In our observations in OCUM-2MD3 cells, 12 genes were up-regulated, and 20 genes were down-regulated. In OCUM-2MLN cells, five genes were up-regulated, and five genes were down-regulated. The analysis revealed two functional gene clusters with altered expression: (a) down-regulation of a cluster of squamous cell differentiation marker genes such as small proline-rich proteins [SPRRs (SPRR1A, SPRR1B, and SPRR2A], annexin A1, epithelial membrane protein 1, cellular retinoic acid-binding protein 2, and mesothelin in OCUM-2MD3 cells; and (b) up-regulation of a cluster of antigen-presenting genes such as MHC class II (DP, DR, and DM) and invariant chain (II) in OCUM-2MLN cells through up-regulation of CIITA (MHC class II transactivator). We then analyzed six gastric cancer cell lines by Northern blot and observed preferential up-regulation of trefoil factor 1, alpha-1-antitrypsin, and galectin 4 and down-regulation of cytidine deaminase in cells prone to peritoneal dissemination. Genes highly correlated with invasion or peritoneal dissemination of gastric cancer, such as E-cadherin or integrin beta4, were down-regulated in both of the derivative cell lines analyzed in this study. This is the first demonstration of global gene expression analysis of gastric cancer cells with different metastatic potentials, and these results provide a new insight in the study of human gastric cancer metastasis.  (+info)

Invasion activating caveolin-1 mutation in human scirrhous breast cancers. (4/66)

We looked for mutations in the caveolin-1 gene, encoding a critical molecule for membrane signaling to cell growth, in 92 primary human breast cancers, and we report here the identification of a mutation in caveolin-1 at codon 132 (P132L) in 16% of cases. The mutation-positive cases were mostly invasive scirrhous carcinomas. In cell lines expressing the same mutant of caveolin-1, we observed that the mutant Caveolin-1 expression seemed to induce cellular transformation and activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase-signaling pathway and to promote invasion-ability as well as altered actin networks in the cells. These results provide, for the first time, genetic evidence that a functioning Caveolin-1 mutation may have a role in the malignant progression of human breast cancer.  (+info)

Intestinal perforation due to metastasis of breast carcinoma, with special reference to chemotherapy: a case report. (5/66)

We report a case of small-bowel perforation due to metastatic carcinoma of the breast during chemotherapy. Partial resection of the small intestine and primary anastomosis were performed. Although the patient made a good recovery from panperitonitis, she died of the disease on the 55th postoperative day. Since perforation during chemotherapy results in an extremely poor prognosis, special caution during chemotherapy is needed for patients with possible gastrointestinal involvement with tumor.  (+info)

A novel variant of WISP1 lacking a Von Willebrand type C module overexpressed in scirrhous gastric carcinoma. (6/66)

Scirrhous carcinoma of the stomach is characterized by rapid growth with a vast fibrous stroma, high invasiveness, and substantially a poor prognosis. Little is known of the molecular pathogenesis of this disease. Members of the emerging family of the CCN gene (for connective tissue growth factor, cysteine-rich 61, nephroblastoma overexpressed) encode cysteine-rich secreted proteins with roles in human fibrotic disorders and cancer progression. Using targeted differential displays, we identified a novel variant of the CCN family member WISP1 (Wnt-induced secreted protein 1), named WISP1v, as overexpressed in scirrhous gastric carcinomas. Predicted protein of the WISP1v completely lacks a module of Von Willebrand type C that is thought to participate in protein complex formation. Ectopic expression revealed WISP1v to be a secreted oncoprotein inducing a striking cellular transformation and rapid piling-up growth. It is noteworthy that WISP1v transfectants enhanced the invasive phenotype of co-cultured gastric carcinoma cells, while wild-type WISP1 had no such potential. These findings suggest that CCN protein WISP1v is involved in the aggressive progression of scirrhous gastric carcinoma.  (+info)

Detection method and breast carcinoma histology. (7/66)

BACKGROUND: The association between method of detection and breast carcinoma histopathology has not been assessed adequately in a population-based setting. METHODS: Among women who were included in a population-based, case-control study of breast cancer, patients who were newly diagnosed with invasive breast carcinoma were identified from Wisconsin's statewide tumor registry. Only women age > or = 50 years were analyzed, because screening by mammography was not recommended before age 50 years at the time of the study. The breast tumors among these women (n = 2341 tumors) included the following histopathologies: lobular carcinoma (n = 206 tumors); ductal carcinoma, not otherwise specified (n = 1920 tumors); papillary carcinoma (n = 15 tumors); medullary carcinoma (n = 36 tumors); mucinous adenocarcinoma (n = 56 tumors); tubular adenocarcinoma (n = 41 tumors); invasive comedocarcinoma (n = 24 tumors); scirrhous adenocarcinoma (n = 15 tumors); and mixed ductal/lobular carcinoma (n = 28 tumors). RESULTS: Overall, women reported that 41% of tumors were detected by mammography, 48% of tumors were self detected, and 11% of tumors were detected by clinical breast examination (CBE). Detection by mammography was significantly more likely for women who had tubular carcinoma (83%; P < 0.001) and invasive comedocarcinoma (67%; P = 0.23) compared with women who had ductal carcinoma (40%). Mammography was significantly less likely to detect medullary carcinoma (17%) than ductal carcinoma (40%; P = 0.01). Lobular carcinoma was the only histopathology that, compared with ductal carcinoma, was detected significantly more often by CBE than by self detection. Mammography detected lobular carcinoma (42%) as frequently as ductal carcinoma (40%). However, the use of postmenopausal hormones may have modified these detection patterns: Among current users, mammography discovered a greater percentage of ductal carcinomas (51%) and fewer lobular carcinomas (36%) than nonusers. CONCLUSIONS: Among women age > or = 50 years, breast cancer detection by mammography, self detection, and CBE varied according to tumor histopathology.  (+info)

Scirrhous gastric carcinoma with mediastinal invasion in a dog. (8/66)

An 8-year-old male Rottweiler was presented for recurrent episodes of dysphagia and vomiting with chronic weight loss. Radiography revealed a mediastinal mass in the heart base region. Necropsy revealed a firm, white mediastinal mass extending along the distal esophagus, through the diaphragm, to the gastric cardia, leftward to the convex visceral aspect of the fundus, and rightward along the lesser curvature of the stomach to the pyloric antrum. The gastric lymph node was enlarged and the omentum contained several nodules. Histologically, deep fundic mucosa contained pleomorphic, vacuolated cells with intracytoplasmic mucin, which was hyaluronidase resistant. Neoplastic cells were cytokeratin positive and vimentin negative. Transmural invasion was evidenced by the presence of cytokeratin-positive cells between smooth muscle bundles of the gastric wall. The mediastinal mass was composed of clusters of neoplastic cells in a stroma of dense and loose connective tissue. Neoplastic cells were also within blood and lymphatic vessels, tracheobronchial and gastric lymph nodes, and around peripheral nerves. This carcinoma most likely arose from the gastric fundus and extended to the cardia, from where it advanced proximally to the mediastinum as well as further rightward along the lesser curvature, demonstrating an anatomic continuity suggestive of a direct invasion. Metastasis, evidenced by the presence of lymphatic, blood, and perineural tumor emboli, also occurred.  (+info)

Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) is a potent growth inhibitor for many cell types, including tumor cells. We recently have reported the establishment and characterization of two human gastric scirrhous carcinoma cell lines, HSC-39 and HSC-43. Here we examined the effect of TGF-β1 on the growth of these lines as compared to five other human gastric adenocarcinoma cell lines. Proliferation of HSC-39 and HSC-43 cells was strongly inhibited by TGF-β1, whereas the other gastric adenocarcinoma cell lines were unresponsive to TGF-β1. Both HSC-39 and HSC-43 cells gradually lost viability following exposure to TGF-β1. This response was dose dependent up to 4 ng/ml. When TGF-β1 was removed, the cells failed to exhibit regrowth, indicating an irreversible growth-inhibitory effect of this agent, leading to cell death. DNA fragments were observed consisting of multimers of approximately 180 base pairs 24 h after TGF-β1 treatment. The chromatin condensation of each cell line was confirmed by ...

It seemed that the state of tyrosine phosphorylation was not altered by the expression of the caveolin-1 mutant. We next used a variety of phospho-specific antibodies (12) that have been generated against the activated forms of well-known signal transducers. Fig. 4d ⇓ shows that both intracellular MAPKs and p38-MAPK 4 were constitutively activated in the caveolin-1 mutant clones. On the other hand, the status of phosphorylation of AKT was not changed, although v-Src-transformed cells (SR3Y1) showed increased phosphorylation of AKT. Again, these experiments demonstrated the capacity for the mutant to drive cell transformation. These observations are compatible with previous reports showing that alteration of caveolin-1 function could be involved in the cellular transformation as a dominant negative effect of caveolin-1.. The mutation-positive cases of breast cancer were mostly involved in the pathologically invasive types such as scirrhous carcinomas (18) . Hence, we suspected that the ...

All long- and intermediate-acting insulins contain crystals and they settle to the bottom of the vial. They must be re-suspended before drawing up and injecting the insulin. Research has shown that the vial must be rolled or tipped 20 times to achieve a satisfactory mixture. This also applies to insulin in pens. Failure to do this can result in unexpected hypos because there will be less crystals in the insulin and it is the crystals that slow down the action of the insulin ...

In recent years, increasing research has focused on the relationship between cytokines and tumorigenesis. It has been suggested that cytokines may be a new therapeutic option for tumors (16-20). In our experiments, we demonstrated that IFN-λ1 inhibited the growth of gastric carcinoma cells in a concentration-dependent manner. These data suggest that IFN-λ1 may be a potential antitumor agent for the treatment of gastric cancer.. Impaired apoptotic induction and dysregulated cell cycle progression are important factors in cancer development. Accordingly, inhibition of cell cycle regulation is particularly useful in the treatment of cancer. In our in vitro study, we demonstrated the apoptosis-inducing effects of IFN-λ1 in gastric carcinoma cells using PI cell cycle analysis, Annexin V and PI staining as well as activated caspase-3. Our study showed that IFN-λ1 induced G1 phase arrest and apoptosis in the gastric carcinoma cells.. Experimental evidence suggests that apoptosis can be mediated by ...

If you dont have, or know, anyone with diabetes, you may be asking what are hypos? If you do, youre almost certainly up to speed with what they mean. A hypo is the common term for low blood sugar, and symptoms include feeling faint, dizzy, hungry, trembly, anxious or having blurred vision. If its not treated and gets worse, it can even cause loss of consciousness and it can occasionally be fatal . The consequences can be severe, especially if youre driving or operating machinery at the time. Having hypos can reduce your quality of life and your confidence, and thats why this week is the first ever Hypoglycaemia Awareness Week, launched by the NHS .

The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) dataset for gastric cancer has shown that the gastric cancer populations with nonsynonymous KRAS, BRAF, or MEK1 mutations were relatively small (28 of 289, 24 of 289, and 7 of 289, respectively), and MEK1 Q56P or S72G mutations have not been identified in the TCGA dataset. In this study, we identified MEK1 mutations in poorly differentiated gastric cancer cell lines that were hypersensitive to MEK inhibitors and showed that these mutations have transformational abilities and that the growth of the cancer cells is dependent on these mutations. Specifically, the MEK1 S72Q mutation in the Okajima cell line is a novel activating mutation, whereas the MEK1 Q56P mutation in the OCUM-1 cell line has been previously reported by Choi and colleagues (17). In addition, a MEK1 Q56P mutation was identified in a clinical sample of a poorly differentiated gastric cancer; to the best of our knowledge, this is the first study in which a clinical sample of a MEK1 Q56P-mutated ...

Buddy, If we are indeed supposed to be solving problems and not causing them, which I agree is true, then I suggest you read your own posts before you send them. The post in questions *sounded* very judgemental, to me at least and obviously some others here. To tell someone to just to count carbs better is like a slap in the face - It is your fault, just do it right next time and you will be fine. Hello? We all do our best and sometimes it is not enough. Diabetes can be so variable, who knows what causes a hypo? Some days I eat the same things, do the same things, and one day it is high, one day it is low, another day it will be perfect. I am trying to figure out why and, after many years, am very happy to find what is usually a safe place to talk about the ups and downs. So you might consider the wide variety of ways a post can be interpreted before you post. And if you keep getting flack, maybe that is something to consider. :) Janine getting out her Kevlar ,Yes Greg I do go low. Dont get ...
