Large, branched, specialized sweat glands that empty into the upper portion of a HAIR FOLLICLE instead of directly onto the SKIN.
A pair of anal glands or sacs, located on either side of the ANUS, that produce and store a dark, foul-smelling fluid in carnivorous animals such as MEPHITIDAE and DOGS. The expelled fluid is used as a defensive repellent (in skunks) or a material to mark territory (in dogs).
Tumors or cancer of the anal gland.
A chronic suppurative and cicatricial disease of the apocrine glands occurring chiefly in the axillae in women and in the groin and anal regions in men. It is characterized by poral occlusion with secondary bacterial infection, evolving into abscesses which eventually rupture. As the disease becomes chronic, ulcers appear, sinus tracts enlarge, fistulas develop, and fibrosis and scarring become evident.
Diseases of the SWEAT GLANDS.
A rare cutaneous neoplasm that occurs in the elderly. It develops more frequently in women and predominantly involves apocrine gland-bearing areas, especially the vulva, scrotum, and perianal areas. The lesions develop as erythematous scaly patches that progress to crusted, pruritic, erythematous plaques. The clinical differential diagnosis includes squamous cell carcinoma in situ and superficial fungal infection. It is generally thought to be an adenocarcinoma of the epidermis, from which it extends into the contiguous epithelium of hair follicles and eccrine sweat ducts.

A form of stimulus sensitive myoclonic epilepsy inherited as an autosomal recessive condition. The most common presenting feature is a single seizure in the second decade of life. This is followed by progressive myoclonus, myoclonic seizures, tonic-clonic seizures, focal occipital seizures, intellectual decline, and severe motor and coordination impairments. Most affected individuals do not live past the age of 25 years. Concentric amyloid (Lafora) bodies are found in neurons, liver, skin, bone, and muscle (From Menkes, Textbook of Childhood Neurology, 5th ed, pp111-110)

A malignant neoplasm derived from glandular epithelium, in which cystic accumulations of retained secretions are formed. The neoplastic cells manifest varying degrees of anaplasia and invasiveness, and local extension and metastases occur. Cystadenocarcinomas develop frequently in the ovaries, where pseudomucinous and serous types are recognized. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)
A variety of rare sarcoma having a reticulated fibrous stroma enclosing groups of sarcoma cells, which resemble epithelial cells and are enclosed in alveoli walled with connective tissue. It is a rare tumor, usually occurring between 15 and 35 years of age. It appears in the muscles of the extremities in adults and most commonly in the head and neck regions of children. Though slow-growing, it commonly metastasizes to the lungs, brain, bones, and lymph nodes. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1365)

Immunohistochemical analysis of Ki-67, p53, p21, and p27 in benign and malignant apocrine lesions of the breast: its correlation to histologic findings in 43 cases. (1/80)

We examined Ki-67, p53, p21, and p27 immunolocalization in 43 cases of apocrine lesions of the breast and correlated these findings with histologic parameters to understand their biologic significance. Twenty cases were benign, 1 case was borderline, and 22 cases were diagnosed as malignant, including 9 intraductal and 13 invasive apocrine carcinomas. Both the ratio of Ki-67-positive cases (17 of 21 [88.9%] versus 1 of 19 [5.3%]; P < .001) and the Ki-67 labeling index of positive cases examined (15.0% versus 2.7%; P < .005) were significantly higher in malignant than in benign apocrine lesions. None of the benign or borderline cases was immunohistochemically positive for p53, but 15 of 22 malignant cases (68.2%) demonstrated p53 (P < .001). In addition, the ratio of p53-positive cases was significantly higher in high nuclear grade cases (11 of 13 [84.6%]) than in intermediate nuclear grade cases (4 of 9 [44.4%]; P < .05). P53 immunoreactivity was also positively correlated with the nuclear grade of carcinoma cases examined in this study. Neither p21 nor p27 demonstrated any correlation with histologic parameters or findings of the apocrine lesions. Results of these studies suggest that Ki-67 and p53 may be good markers for differentiation between benign and malignant breast apocrine lesions.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical localisation of androgen receptor in apocrine metaplasia and apocrine adenosis of the breast: relation to oestrogen and progesterone receptors. (2/80)

AIM: To investigate the receptor status of the sex steroid hormones in apocrine metaplasia of the breast. METHODS: 82 cases of apocrine metaplasia, including 18 of the rare lesion apocrine adenosis, were studied immunohistochemically for the expression of androgen receptor, oestrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor proteins on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue sections. The standard avidin biotin complex (ABC) technique was followed and appropriate positive and negative controls were used. RESULTS: All the studied cases (82/82) were positive for androgen receptor, but were negative for oestrogen receptor and progesterone receptor. CONCLUSIONS: Apocrine metaplastic epithelium, unlike the normal breast epithelium, is responsive to androgens, through androgen receptors, rather than to the female sex hormones. This may have clinical implications.  (+info)

A novel aspartyl proteinase from apocrine epithelia and breast tumors. (3/80)

GCDFP-15 (gross cystic disease fluid protein, 15 kDa) is a secretory marker of apocrine differentiation in breast carcinoma. In human breast cancer cell lines, gene expression is regulated by hormones, including androgens and prolactin. The protein is also known under different names in different body fluids such as gp17 in seminal plasma. GCDFP-15/gp17 is a ligand of CD4 and is a potent inhibitor of T-cell apoptosis induced by sequential CD4/T-cell receptor triggering. We now report that GCDFP-15/gp17 is a protease exhibiting structural properties relating it to the aspartyl proteinase superfamily. Unexpectedly, GCDFP-15/gp17 appears to be related to the retroviral members rather than to the known cellular members of this class. Site-specific mutagenesis of Asp(22) (predicted to be catalytically important for the active site) and pepstatin A inhibition confirmed that the protein is an aspartic-type protease. We also show that, among the substrates tested, GCDFP-15/gp17 is specific for fibronectin. The study of GCDFP-15/gp17-mediated proteolysis may provide a handle to understand phenomena as diverse as mammary tumor progression and fertilization.  (+info)

Extramammary Paget disease is characterized by the consistent lack of estrogen and progesterone receptors but frequently expresses androgen receptor. (4/80)

Extramammary Paget disease (EPD) is an uncommon cutaneous malignant neoplasm that arises in areas rich in apocrine glands (perineum, vulva, and axilla). Apocrine gland origin or apocrine differentiation of cells of EPD has been suggested. Estrongen, progesterone, and androgen hormone receptors have been reported to exhibit a characteristic pattern of expression in mammary apocrine type carcinomas; however, their expression in EPD has not been elucidated fully. By using immunohistochemical methods, we studied the expression of steroid receptors in EPD on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples from 28 patients with EPD without associated visceral malignant neoplasms or adnexal carcinoma. Androgen receptor (AR) was identified in 15 of 28 cases. The proportion of AR-positive cells varied from 1% to more than 75%; 8 cases expressed AR in more than 10% of cells. Strong AR expression also was seen in the invasive carcinoma arising from 1 case of EPD. All cases lacked immunohistochemically detectable estrogen and progesterone receptors. The immunophenotype characteristic of apocrine carcinomas (AR-positive, estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative) was seen in a substantial proportion of EPD cases. Results suggest that AR expression is a factor in pathogenesis of EPD. This may be important for the therapy of recurrent or invasive disease.  (+info)

Histo-physiology of the scent-marking glands of the penile pad, anal pouch, and the forefoot in the aardwolf (Proteles cristatus). (5/80)

The scentmarking glands of the anal pouch, penile pad, and the forefoot of the aardwolf (Proteles cristatus) were studied by histological, histochemical, immunohistochemical methods, and by electron microscopy. The morphological observations are correlated with eco-ethological aspects of this nocturnal animal. In all studied regions there was a superficial layer of holocrine sebaceous glands and a deeper layer of apocrine scent glands; these two types of glands apparently function in concert. Only in the forefoot were additional tubular glands, resembling eccrine sweat glands found, which may improve the frictional capacities of the paw, while apocrine and holocrine glands serve scent-marking functions of the forefoot. Penile pad and anal pouch are exclusively scent marking organs. The secretion modus of the apocrine glands is both via exocytosis and apocrine mechanism. Homogeneous apical, secretory granules, which contain glycoproteinaceous material, represent evidence for exocytosis. In the anal pouch, additional variably sized granules contain endogenous pigments which are probably responsible for the brownish coloration of the secretory product of the male animals. Variable heights of the glandular cells, frequent apical tall protrusions as well as pinched-off pieces of cytoplasm in the glandular tubules support the concept of an apocrine secretion in the scent glands. The immunohistochemical staining pattern of actin points to the involvement of actin filaments in the pinching-off process of the apical cell protrusion, which does not contain any cell organelles. The variable actin staining patterns suggest a dynamic process during which actin filaments form a ring or sheet at the basis of the pinching-off bleb. Proliferative and apoptotic phenomena show no preference for active and inactive glandular cells suggesting that replacement of cells occurs independently of the functional status of the glands.  (+info)

Aspects of general antimicrobial properties of skin secretions in the common seal Phoca vitulina. (6/80)

Considerable amounts of several saccharide residues (alpha-D-Man, beta-D-GlcNAc, alpha-D-GalNAc, beta-D-Gal, alpha-D-Gal, alpha-L-Fuc, NeuNAc) are demonstrated by lectin histochemistry in the sections of the sebaceous glands, and, particularly, the apocrine tubular glands of the common seal. These sugars may be liberated on the skin surface by microbial activities and, then, represent a general antimicrobial protection mechanism of the skin because of their ability to inhibit the adherence of different bacteria and fungi to the epidermis.  (+info)

Molecular cytogenetic comparison of apocrine hyperplasia and apocrine carcinoma of the breast. (7/80)

The relationship of apocrine metaplasia to invasive breast cancer is controversial. Different authors have reported that apocrine differentiation in proliferative lesions may be a risk factor, a precursor lesion, or have no association with malignancy. The aim of this study was to compare the genetic alterations in benign apocrine hyperplasia with apocrine ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and invasive apocrine carcinomas of the breast using comparative genomic hybridization. The mean number of alterations in apocrine hyperplasia was 4.1 (n = 10) compared to 10.2 in apocrine DCIS (n = 10) and 14.8 (n = 4) in invasive carcinoma. The most common alterations in apocrine hyperplasia were gains of 2q, 13q, and 1p and losses of 1p, 17q, 22q, 2p, 10q, and 16q. Apocrine DCIS and invasive carcinomas showed gains of 1q, 2q, 1p, and losses of 1p, 22q, 17q, 12q, and 16q as their most common DNA copy number changes. Apocrine hyperplasia is considered to be a benign lesion and its relationship to invasive carcinoma remains unclear. Our data suggest that some apocrine hyperplasias may be clonal proliferations. The mean number of alterations are lower in apocrine hyperplasia, however the changes show considerable overlap with those identified in in situ and invasive apocrine carcinoma. These alterations are also commonly seen in nonapocrine breast cancer. The data are consistent with apocrine hyperplasia as a putative nonobligate precursor of apocrine carcinoma.  (+info)

Mixed apocrine/endocrine ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast coexistent with lobular carcinoma in situ. (8/80)

An unusual mixed form of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast is described, which exhibits a biphenotypic morphology encompassing a range of differential diagnostic DCIS subtypes. In addition, immunophenotypic and ultrastructural studies demonstrate neuroendocrine and apocrine differentiation, raising questions regarding appropriate classification and biological behaviour. In two cases, coexistence of this mixed form of DCIS with lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) in the same duct lobular units is an additional unusual feature that might, at least in some cases, indicate a closer relation between them.  (+info)

A retrospective chart review was conducted among patients who underwent subcutaneous shaving to treat osmidrosis at the Department of Cosmetic Surgery of Yeungnam University Hospital between January 2012 and February 2019. The goal of this review was to measure recurrence, reoperation, and complication rates. Recurrence was defined as the presence of symptoms at least 3 months after surgery. Complications included skin necrosis, hematoma, and infection [8]. Axillary subcutaneous tissues were harvested from five randomly chosen patients with osmidrosis before and after subcutaneous shaving. The five patients prospectively agreed to the harvesting and analysis of their axillary subcutaneous tissue. The tissues were subjected to immunofluorescence (IF) staining using mucin, an apocrine gland marker, to measure the distance of the apocrine glands from the basal layer of the epidermis. The tissues were examined to determine whether the apocrine glands had been adequately removed and the vascular ...

Apocrine is a term used to classify exocrine glands in the study of histology. Cells which are classified as apocrine bud their secretions off through the plasma membrane producing membrane-bound vesicles in the lumen. The apical portion of the secretory cell of the gland pinches off and enters the lumen. It loses part of its cytoplasm in their secretions. Apocrine glands are found primarily in the breast of lactating mammals (i.e. the mammary glands are apocrine glands). Secretion occurs when the release of secretory materials is accompanied with loss of part of cytoplasm. Apocrine secretion is less damaging to the gland than holocrine secretion (which destroys a cell) but more damaging than merocrine secretion (exocytosis). An example of true apocrine glands is the mammary glands, responsible for secreting breast milk. Apocrine metaplasia is a reversible transformation of cells to an apocrine phenotype. It is common in the breast in the context of fibrocystic change. It is seen in women mostly ...

It is not possible to distinguish on histological ground between the ductal portion of eccrine and apocrine glands.. Traditionally most tumours have been considered to show eccrine ductal differentiation. Ackerman and colleagues have reclassified many of the traditional eccrine tumours to apocrine categories.. Extensive sampling may reveal foci of decapitation secretion in tumours classically regarded as eccrine.. Some of the glandular tumours reveal at least small foci of sebaceous or follicular differentiation.. Sweat gland and ductal differentiation: Characterized by formation of glandular/duct structures and presence of intracytoplasmic glandular lumina. True ducts and intracytoplasmic lumina can be highlighted by their diastase-resistant periodic acid-Schiff (PAS), epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and carcinoembryonic antigen positivity. Currently the diagnostic utility of immunohistochemisty is doubtful. ...
Previous microarray studies on breast cancer identified multiple tumour classes, of which the most prominent, named luminal and basal, differ in expression of the oestrogen receptor alpha gene (ER). We report here the identification of a group of breast tumours with increased androgen signalling and a molecular apocrine gene expression profile. Tumour samples from 49 patients with large operable or locally advanced breast cancers were tested on Affymetrix U133A gene expression microarrays. Principal components analysis and hierarchical clustering split the tumours into three groups: basal, luminal and a group we call molecular apocrine. All of the molecular apocrine tumours have strong apocrine features on histological examination (P=0.0002). The molecular apocrine group is androgen receptor (AR) positive and contains all of the ER-negative tumours outside the basal group. Kolmogorov-Smirnov testing indicates that oestrogen signalling is most active in the luminal group, and androgen ...
The sweat that leads to body odour is a separate type. It comes from the apocrine glands, which are located close to hair follicles. These glands are focused around furry or hairy regions which includes the armpits and groin. The tube of the gland is simply joined onto the hair follicle and uses the hair as a conduit to flow onto the surface of the skin. This type of sweat is largely used as a signaling mechanism to communicate what state the body is in. Within the case of hormonal fluctuations, tension or emotional stress, fluid made from water, proteins, fatty acids and other materials is secreted by the apocrine glands and empties into the hair follicle. This chemical mix is broken down by bacteria that live on the skins outer surface. ...

This gene is a member of a phylogenetically conserved family of genes that share a common DNA-binding domain, the T-box. T-box genes encode transcription factors involved in the regulation of developmental processes. This protein is a transcriptional repressor and is thought to play a role in the anterior/posterior axis of the tetrapod forelimb. Mutations in this gene cause ulnar-mammary syndrome, affecting limb, apocrine gland, tooth, hair, and genital development. Alternative splicing of this gene results in three transcript variants encoding different isoforms; however, the full length nature of one variant has not been determined ...
We isolated total RNA from 11 normal breast samples, 17 DCIS, and 151 invasive breast carcinomas (Supplementary Table S1). IHC typing of the breast carcinomas showed that 71 lacked ER, PR, and HER2 expression (TNBC), whereas 97 were positive for a single or multiple of the 3 markers. Twenty-three TNBCs represented special histologic types: metaplastic (n = 9), atypical medullary (n = 8), adenoid cystic (n = 2), and apocrine carcinomas (n = 4). In addition, we isolated RNA from 6 ductal breast cell lines (MCF7, MCF10A, HCC38, BT474, MDA-MB134, and ZR-751).. We processed all samples by 3′-adapter barcoded small RNA cDNA library Solexa sequencing (31). A total of 61,319,767 barcoded sequence reads were extracted yielding a median of 134,022 reads per sample (range: 7,403-1,608,855; Supplementary Table S2); these reads were mapped to the genome allowing 1 mismatch/insertion/deletion and then to our noncoding RNA and miRNA databases allowing up to 2 mismatches or 1 insertion/deletion (22).

Looking for online definition of apocrine glands in the Medical Dictionary? apocrine glands explanation free. What is apocrine glands? Meaning of apocrine glands medical term. What does apocrine glands mean?
An apocrine sweat gland (/ˈæpəkrən, -ˌkraɪn, -ˌkriːn/; from Greek apo- away and krinein to separate) is composed of a coiled secretory portion located at the junction of the dermis and subcutaneous fat, from which a straight portion inserts and secretes into the infundibular portion of the hair follicle. In humans, apocrine sweat glands are found only in certain locations of the body: the axillae (armpits), areola and nipples of the breast, ear canal, eyelids, wings of the nostril, perianal region, and some parts of the external genitalia. Modified apocrine glands include the ciliary glands in the eyelids; the ceruminous glands, which produce ear wax; and the mammary glands, which produce milk. The rest of the body is covered by eccrine sweat glands. Most non-primate mammals, however, have apocrine sweat glands over the greater part of their body. Domestic animals such as dogs and cats have apocrine glands at each hair follicle but eccrine glands only in foot pads and snout. Their ...
Apocrine secretory mechanisms have not been properly discussed; for example the biochemical and physiological pathways that regulate apocrine secretory process are not clearly known. not active until puberty. Endocrine system glands are spaced throughout the entire body. Apocrine Glands. Certain endocrine glands also release hormones called pancrines that affect only specifically targeted cells very close to where they are released. Apocrine-like cells form in a lining of developing microcysts, due to the pressure buildup within the lumen.

Similar to other skin diseases, the life quality of patients with acne inversa is considerably limited, not only due to the symptoms but also to its successions such as depressions and social isolation. Again and again, patients have to face the accusation that they dont take care of their body hygiene which causes their symptoms. But - despite intensive research - the exact cause for this disease is not known yet. One is for sure though: Genetic predisposition. In nearly one third of the patients the disease is considered genetically determined. Today it is considered certain that acne inversa is a disorder of the terminal hair follicle and not of the apocrine sweat glands. The inflammation of the apocrine sweat glands is a secondary phenomenon thus the old term hidradenitis suppurativa incorrect. In addition to smoking, over weight, increased sweating, tight clothing, diabetes mellitus as well as a weakened immune defence are being discussed as predisposing factors.. Mostly the diagnosis is ...
We all sweat. Its our bodys way of cooling us down. Sweat doesnt stink, yet we do. Why is that? The zinc oxide Mum used suggests that the 19th-century inventor knew that bacteria, not perspiration itself, made underarms reek. Zinc oxide is an antibacterial. Bacteria were relatively new concepts at the time, which makes Mums reasoning (if he so reasoned) more than amazing. Since then, scientists have figured out that bacteria feeds on some of the substances in sweat, thereby causing our bodies to smell. Your underarms are ground zero.. Underarms brim with apocrine glands, one of two main types of sweat glands that cover your body. Usually found in areas laden with hair follicles, apocrine glands produce a milky perspiration comprising water, proteins, lipids, fatty acids, cholesterols and iron-containing salts. When you perspire, the walls of the apocrine glands shrink, allowing the fluid to glom onto your hair follicles. The perspiration, which at this point is odorless, eventually pushes ...

Y1 - 1994/8/15. N2 - Nine dogs and 9 cats with ceruminous gland carcinoma were evaluated to determine whether they would receive radiation therapy. Tissue samples were reviewed to confirm the diagnosis and to assess completeness of resection in animals that had undergone surgery. Seven animals were excluded because surgical excision was determined histologically to have been complete (5) or because the owners did not wish to pursue treatment, because of advanced disease (2). The remaining 6 cats and 5 dogs, 6 of which had previously undergone surgery, were included in the study. The radiation therapy dose was 48 Gy, given in 12 fractions over 4 weeks. The product-limit estimate of mean progression-free survival time was 39.5 months. The estimate of 1-year progression-free survival rate was 56%. The tumor ...
Apocrine carcinoma is a rare malignant adnexal neoplasm. The differential diagnosis between apocrine carcinoma and cutaneous metastasis is often difficult. Here, we report a case of locally recurrent penile apocrine carcinoma initially diagnosed as metastatic adenocarcinoma of the colon. A 75-year-old man with a history of surgical resection due to sigmoid colon cancer and penile metastasis two years prior to this study presented with a nodule at the left penile base. He underwent a wide local resection of the penile mass under a suggested preoperative diagnosis of extra-mammary Pagets disease (EMPD) associated with previous sigmoid colon cancer ...
THE DEVELOPMENT OF PYODERMA. It is believed that staphylococcal pyoderma develops following surface spread from the carrier sites. Factors that ordinarily prevent the development of pyoderma are:. 1. The physical barrier of the intact skin. Normal desquamation is extremely important in preventing niches in which pathogenic bacteria could become established.. 2. Antibacterial substances present in normal sebum, and secreted onto the skin surface from apocrine secretions. This would include immunoglobulin, and other non-specifically acting substances such as those produced by resident bacteria.. 3. The bacterial barrier. If non-pathogenic bacteria occupy all available colonization sites, pathogens will not become established. There is thus a dynamic balance between the host defenses, the virulence of any potential pathogens and their ability to gain access, and the host defenses that are brought into play in a damage limitation exercise.. FACTORS THAT PREDISPOSE TO RECURRENT PYODERMAS. Pyoderma is ...

To clarify the features of apocrine mixed tumors (AMT) of the skin among benign neoplasms with apocrine differentiation in their relationship to follicular stem cells, we investigated the immunohistochemical expression of CK15 (LHK15 and C8/144B), which is a relatively specific marker of hair follicle stem cells in the bulge, in 35 cases of eight different benign neoplasms with presumed apocrine differentiation ...

Only a lucky few have normal skin; the rest of us have a dry, oily or combination variety; if dryness is your problem, read on. Skin is not dry solely because it lacks oil, but because it lacks water. Xeroderma (dry skin) occurs most commonly on the lower legs, arms, the sides of the abdomen and thighs. Skin also receives less blood flow and lower gland activity. Skin is our largest organ and is considered one of the most important parts of the body.. Skin contains the hair follicles, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, apocrine glands and blood vessels. The outermost layer of epidermis consists of 25 to 30 layers of dead cells. The dermis is structurally divided into two areas: a superficial area adjacent to the epidermis, called the papillary region, and a deep thicker area known as the reticular region. The dermis is tightly connected to the epidermis by a basement membrane.. Certain drugs, including diuretics, antispasmodics, and antihistamines, can contribute to dry skin. Environmental ...
The breasts are apocrine glands that develop milk for that feeding of toddler small children; Each and every breast incorporates a nipple within an areola (nipple-areola intricate, NAC), the skin color of which may differ from pink to dim brown, and has sebaceous glands. Within the mammary gland, the lactiferous ducts generate breast milk, and are dispersed through the breast, with two-thirds of your tissue within thirty mm of the base from the nipple. In Every breast, four-eighteen lactiferous ducts drain on the nipple; the glands-to-Fats ratio is two:1 in lactating women, and to one:one in non-lactating women; Apart from milk glands, the breast is composed of connective tissue (collagen, elastin), adipose tissue (white Fats), as well as suspensory Coopers ligaments ...

Background Breast cancer is currently classified in 3 groups based on estrogen receptor alpha (ER) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2/ERBB2) gene expression: one basal-like (ER-ERBB2-), one HER2−enriched (ERBB2+) and one luminal (ER+). Yet, in transcriptome-based classifications, ER-ERBB2+ group partially overlaps with more recently defined ER-AR+ (androgen receptor positive) group. This type was named molecular apocrine, in reference to the histopathologically characterized apocrine carcinomas (H-Apo), in which a marked activation of AR signaling was demonstrated with a distinct proteomic signature. H-Apo tumors correspond to 1% of invasive breast carcinomas and are clearly morphological distinct from other AR+ tumors. However, no specific H-Apo transcriptome signature has been reported for this sub-group. In an effort to better characterize those tumors, we have performed a meta-analysis of genomic data, focusing on the ER- AR+ breast subset.. Samples and Methods: Chips were ...

What is the role of apocrine glands? For many years, HS was referred to as a disease of the aprocine glands. Apocrine glands are a type of sweat gland that appears in some of the areas where one can find HS spots - like the underarm and groin - but also in areas where HS spots are nearly unheard of - like the ear canal, eyelids, and nostril. Patients will also report having HS flare-ups in areas where there are no apocrine glands, like the abdomen, or thighs.. Science is not settled on this subject, but it is now thought that Hidradenitis Suppurativa is primarily a disease of the hair follicle and apocrine glands only become secondarily infected. Sources calling HS a disease of the sweat glands or aprocine glands are out of date.. Why do some treatments work for some, but not for others? Hidradenitis Suppurativa is one of the most difficult diseases in dermatology, in no small part because what works for one patient may not work for another. In fact, some treatments for HS are widely reported by ...

N2 - Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a common inflammatory skin disease. Medical treatment is often disappointing and in severe disease surgery remains the therapy of choice. Extensive surgery may be effective but also mutilating. Patients experience a significant reduction in quality of life and the need for new treatment modalities are urgent. In recent years patients with HS have been treated off-label with tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) inhibitors with a varying degrees of effect. We performed a systematic review of papers retrieved from two databases (PubMed and Web of Science) using the following keywords: hidradenitis suppurativa, acne inversa, infliximab, etanercept, and adalimumab. A total of 34 publications were retrieved, describing treatment of 105 patients. Most cases report treatment ...

Non-primate mammals have eccrine sweat glands only on the palms and soles. Apocrine glands cover the rest of the body, though they are not as effective as humans in temperature regulation (with the exception of horses).[8] Prosimians have a 1:20 ratio of follicles with apocrine glands versus follicles without.[22] They have eccrine glands between hairs over most of their body (while humans have them between the hairs on their scalp).[9]. The overall distribution of sweat glands varies among primates: the rhesus and patas monkeys have them on the chest; the squirrel monkey has them only on the palms and soles; and the stump-tailed macaque, Japanese monkey, and baboon have them over the entire body.[23]. Domestic animals[which?] have apocrine glands at the base of each hair follicle, but eccrine glands only in foot pads and snout. Their apocrine glands, like those in humans, produce an odorless oily milky secretion evolved not to evaporate and cool but rather coat and stick to hair so ...

Considered a severe form of acne, hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic skin inflammation that usually occurs deep in the skin in areas of the body with sweat glands, such as the groin or armpits. It is characterized by a combination of blackheads and red lesions that break open and drain pus, which may cause itching or sweating. As the red bumps grow in size, they can become more painful.. Hidradenitis suppurativa occurs when oil glands and hair follicles become blocked with sweat gland fluid, dead skin cells and other elements found in hair follicles. These substances become trapped and push out into the surrounding tissue. A break or cut of the skin then allows bacteria to enter the area and cause the inflammation.. Treatment depends on the severity of the condition. For mild cases, home remedies work well, such as warm compresses and regular washing with antibacterial soap. In more difficult cases, a topical or oral antibiotic medication may be needed to treat the infection. Your ...
Antibiotics are frequently prescribed for Hidradenitis Suppurativa, even though they are not proven to be effective. However, they can treat secondary infections and may provide an anti-inflammatory action with subsequent symptomatic relief. The choice of antibiotics should be based on a culture test of the drainage, as there is a wide variety of bacteria that can infect the lesions and not all antibiotics are equally effective. Both oral and topical antibiotics can be used, and at least a two month course is generally prescribed ...

Where the sweat and oil glands are found in prominent areas is where you are likely to find an outbreak of hidradenitis suppurativa. The main areas are the groin, armpit and even anal area, three places where people sweat the most. In addition, areas of the body that tends to rub together like the buttocks, breasts or inner thighs may also have an outbreak. People can have this skin infection in more than one part of their body unfortunately.. Typical signs of hidradenitis suppurativa include the development of red, painful bumps which fill with pus and then break open to drain. Excessive sweating, itching and foul odor may accompany this discharge. Some of these painful bumps may just leak pus continually and take a long time to heal. Sometimes they never fully heal and instead scar up.. Sometimes, the affected area looks pitted and contains blackheads which is trapped sebum from the oil glands that are exposed to the surface. Small painful bumps may swell under the skin and form hard cyst-like ...

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 hidradenitis suppurativa (hs) is an inflammatory, chronic skin disease characterized by recurrent, painful, boil-like lumps (nodules) under the skin. hs affects the areas around skin folds (e.g., armpits, groin, and breasts) and where apocrine glands (a form of sweat gland) and hair follicles are found. it is not contagious. it typically manifests as a single pocket of pus (abscess) or hard, sebaceous lumps (lumps composed of sebum, or oil, which is excreted by the sebacous glands associated with hair follicles). it may progress to painful, deep-seated, inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage involving significant scarring. in most cases, the cause of hs is unknown. it is likely that it results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. some cases of hs have been associated with specific genes, including ncstn, psen1, and psenen. last updated: 3/6/2015 ...
