RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

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. It is characterized by distinctive morphologic changes in the nucleus and cytoplasm, chromatin cleavage at regularly spaced sites, and the endonucleolytic cleavage of genomic DNA; (DNA FRAGMENTATION); at internucleosomal sites. This mode of cell death serves as a balance to mitosis in regulating the size of animal tissues and in mediating pathologic processes associated with tumor growth.

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.

Small double-stranded, non-protein coding RNAs (21-31 nucleotides) involved in GENE SILENCING functions, especially RNA INTERFERENCE (RNAi). Endogenously, siRNAs are generated from dsRNAs (RNA, DOUBLE-STRANDED) by the same ribonuclease, Dicer, that generates miRNAs (MICRORNAS). The perfect match of the siRNAs' antisense strand to their target RNAs mediates RNAi by siRNA-guided RNA cleavage. siRNAs fall into different classes including trans-acting siRNA (tasiRNA), repeat-associated RNA (rasiRNA), small-scan RNA (scnRNA), and Piwi protein-interacting RNA (piRNA) and have different specific gene silencing functions.
Variation in a population's DNA sequence that is detected by determining alterations in the conformation of denatured DNA fragments. Denatured DNA fragments are allowed to renature under conditions that prevent the formation of double-stranded DNA and allow secondary structure to form in single stranded fragments. These fragments are then run through polyacrylamide gels to detect variations in the secondary structure that is manifested as an alteration in migration through the gels.

Verrucous carcinoma of the female breast. (1/43)

Verrucous carcinoma is a rare skin malignancy of squamous cell origin. It is characterised by negligible cellular atypia and a low mitotic rate. These are reflected in slow locally invasive behaviour and very infrequent metastatic spread. The tumour is also recognised in oral and anogenital sites. Cutaneous lesions present most commonly on the sole of the foot. We report a unique case occurring in the female breast.  (+info)

Tobacco-associated lesions of the oral cavity: Part II. Malignant lesions. (2/43)

Here, we describe malignant lesions associated with tobacco use, basic biopsy principles for such lesions and intervention strategies that dental professionals may use to reduce the chances of their patients developing precancerous lesions or primary malignancies.  (+info)

Elevated focal adhesion kinase expression facilitates oral tumor cell invasion. (3/43)

BACKGROUND: Understanding the molecular mechanisms of metastasis is critical with respect to oral tumorigenesis. The focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is an intracellular tyrosine kinase associated with the regulation of cell growth, migration, and survival. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether elevated FAK expression in oral malignancies was associated with increased invasiveness and oral carcinoma. METHODS: Immunohistochemical analysis was used to assess levels of FAK expression in archived oral carcinoma tissue samples. Invasion assays after transfections were used to assess the effect of increased FAK expression on invasive potential of oral tumor cells. RESULTS: The human oral carcinoma cell line SCC25 was significantly more invasive (P < 0.05) and expressed higher levels of FAK compared with the less invasive human oral carcinoma cell line SCC15. FAK expression was 3.0-fold higher in the SCC15 cell line and 5.0-fold higher in the SCC25 cell line compared with normal epithelial cells. In the highly invasive SCC25 cell line, FAK expression was 1.5-fold higher compared with the less invasive SCC15 cell line. FAK immunostaining in oral tumors was significantly more intense compared with the immunostaining in surrounding normal epithelium or chronic mucositis. Overexpression of FAK in low-invading SCC15 cells resulted in a 4.5-fold increase in the rate of invasion compared with untransfected or neotransfected control SCC15 cell lines and a nearly 1.5-fold greater rate compared with the highly invasive untransfected SCC25 cell line. CONCLUSIONS: The current results suggest that enhanced expression of FAK in oral carcinoma cells may lead to a selective growth advantage and increased invasive potential of the primary oral tumor.  (+info)

Capecitabine induces rapid, sustained response in two patients with extensive oral verrucous carcinoma. (4/43)

PURPOSE: Oral verrucous carcinoma (VC) has been traditionally treated with surgery or radiation with frequent recurrences and significant morbidity. We describe rapid and dramatic response to oral capecitabine in two patients with advanced refractory VC. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: VC is a rare tumor of the oral cavity. It does not metastasize but over time causes morbidity and mortality through local invasion. Radiation and surgery have been the main treatment modalities but are plagued by mutilating effects, recurrences, and possibly malignant degeneration in some cases. To date, no effective chemotherapy regimens have been described in the international literature. The clinical records of two elderly females with extensive oral VC are described. Both patients were prescribed one cycle of capecitabine, 1,000 mg bid for 14 days. Response was documented by photography in one patient. Immunohistochemical evaluation of three 5-fluorouracil metabolizing enzymes on pretreatment biopsies from both patients was also performed. A review of the literature with emphasis on treatment of oral VC is presented in view of our findings. RESULTS: Examination of the oral cavity before treatment revealed extensive involvement with an evenly spreading, exophytic, warty, whitish lesion in both patients. Microscopic examination of H&E-stained slides from biopsies of these lesions confirmed the clinical suspicion of VC. Both patients underwent treatment with oral capecitabine for one cycle (2 weeks on/1 week off) at a reduced dose of 1000 mg, p.o., bid. Both had a dramatic response with near complete resolution of their lesions within 3 weeks of initiating therapy. A durable partial response was documented at 1 year in the first patient and 6 months in the second. Immunohistochemical evaluation of pretreatment biopsies from both patients revealed a high level of expression of thymidine phosphorylase, a key enzyme in the metabolism of capecitabine. CONCLUSIONS: Oral VC is a rare entity with a progressive course over years and limited options in terms of treatment. Preliminary observations in two elderly patients demonstrate that capecitabine, an oral fluoropyrimidine, is well tolerated and may induce rapid, clinically significant response. Although not curative, it may provide a cost-effective alternative for elderly patients with a significant improvement in their quality of life.  (+info)

Invasive cutaneous verruco-cystic squamous cell carcinoma. A pattern commonly present in transplant recipients. (5/43)

To determine whether certain histologic features are more common in cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (CSCCs) arising in transplant recipients than in others, we assessed several features of CSCCs from 23 patients who had not undergone transplantation and 25 transplant recipients (size, depth of invasion, sun damage, nuclear atypia, keratinization, epidermal inclusion cyst [EIC]-like features, verrucous features [VFs], shape, and mitoses per 10 high-power fields). We analyzed relationships by using chi 2 and t tests and logistic regression analysis. Transplant recipients tended to be younger than control subjects (mean [SD] age, 56.2 [14.3]; 74.1 [10.6], respectively; P < .0001) and less likely to show severe sun damage (P = .0455; chi 2). CSCCs with VFs and EIC-like features were associated strongly with transplantation: odds ratio, 12.57 (95% confidence interval, 1.28-123.47; P = .0162). No other features were associated significantly with transplant status. Posttransplant tumors commonly showed verrucous and EIC-like features mimicking benign conditions. The younger age of these patients, the frequent absence of solar elastosis, and the infrequent occurrence of well-differentiated verruco-cystic CSCC in the nontransplant population suggest a different pathogenesis in the development of these neoplasms. Pathologists should be aware of this pattern, especially when diagnosing small biopsy specimens from transplant recipients.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of oral verrucous carcinoma. (6/43)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of patients with Verrucous carcinoma (VC) of oral cavity treated at the Chung Gung Memory Hospital with respect to the tumor control rates after surgery, the risk of lymph node metastasis and the role of radiation therapy. METHODS: Thirty-eight patients underwent primary treatment for VC of the oral cavity from January 1996 through February 2002. All of the patients had surgery as their primary treatment. In addition, all patients with sufficient details of the therapy and a minimum 1-year follow-up were selected for evaluation of survival and outcomes. RESULTS: In this study, 94.7% of patients were male and most of them had been exposed to betel nuts, cigarettes, and/or alcohol. The most common site was the buccal mucosa (57.9%), followed by the tongue (13.2%). T3 lesions were the most common type (34.2%). Only two patients had palpable cervical adenopathy during the initial evaluation. Twenty-five patients had free flap for reconstruction. The tumor control rate was 100%. At the time of analysis, no patient had suffered from recurrence in primary site or neck area. CONCLUSION: Surgical excision alone was effective for controlling VC, but elective neck dissection was not necessary even in patients in the advanced stages.  (+info)

Verrucous carcinoma of the bladder with koilocytosis unassociated with vesical schistosomiasis. (7/43)

CONTEXT: Verrucous carcinoma of the bladder is a very rare malignant neoplasm, histologically similar to condyloma acuminatum. Usually it shows association with vesical schistosomiasis (bilharziasis). Only 13 cases unrelated to bilharziasis have been reported to date, and none of them reported koilocytosis, a typical finding in human papillomavirus infection. CASE REPORT: We report a case of verrucous carcinoma of the bladder that was unrelated to bilharziasis, with koilocytosis and absence of human papillomavirus. The literature relating to the topic is discussed.  (+info)

Association of laryngeal cancer with previous gastric resection. (8/43)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between gastric surgery and cancer of the larynx. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Biliary reflux is frequent after gastric surgery and may reach the proximal segment of the esophagus and the larynx. It is possible that duodenal content (consisting in bile acids, trypsin), together with pepsin and acid residues when gastric resection is partial, may cause harmful action on the multistratified epithelium of the larynx. METHODS: A retrospective case-control study on subjects admitted between January 1987 and May 2002 in the same hospital in Rome was carried out. The study included 828 consecutive patients with laryngeal cancer (cases) and 825 controls with acute myocardial infarction. Controls were randomly sampled out of a total of 10,000 and matched with cases for age, sex, and year of admission. Logistic regression models were used to assess the role of gastric resection in determining laryngeal cancer risk while controlling for potential confounding factors. RESULTS: Previous gastrectomy was reported by 8.1% of cases and 1.8% of the controls (P < 0.0001). A 4-fold association emerged between gastric surgery and laryngeal cancer risk (adjusted OR = 4.3, 95% CI: 2.4-7.9). The risk appeared strongly increased 20 years after surgery (OR = 14.8, 95% CI: 3.4-64.6). Heavy alcohol drinking (OR = 2.5, 95% CI: 1.8-3.5), smoking (OR = 4.7, 95% CI: 3.3-6.7), and blue-collar occupation (OR = 4.6, 95% CI: 3.2-6.7) were all independently associated with the risk of laryngeal cancer. CONCLUSIONS: Previous gastric surgery is associated with an increased risk of laryngeal cancer. A periodic laryngeal examination should be considered in long-term follow-up of patients with gastric resection.  (+info)

Verrucous carcinoma is a variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA). In the head and neck, this uncommon subtype of SCCA is seen most often in the oral cavity or on the vocal cords. Visually, it tends to have an exophytic (outward-growing) and wartlike, irregular surface. This variant of SCCA is typically less aggressive than other squamous cell carcinomas. Local recurrence tends to be the issue more than distant metastasis. Surgery tends to be the most effective treatment, though of course every patients circumstance is individualized and considered in the light of three treatment options: surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.. ...

Comment:. Sections demonstrate two distinct histologic neoplasms: an inverted papilloma and a coexisting verrucous carcinoma. Microscopically, the inverted papilloma comprises less than 10% of the tumor mass. Inverted papillomas are not infrequently associated with malignant tumors, primarily squamous cell carcinoma, and in some instances malignant transformation in an inverted papilloma to carcinoma may be observed. In this case, there is no transitional zone in the sections examined to suggest that the verrucous carcinoma is arising directly from the inverted papilloma. Although immunoperoxidase stains for human papillomavirus antigens are negative in both components of the tumor mass, inverted papillomas and verrucous carcinomas have been associated with human papillomavirus infection. ...

Background: We investigated the immunohistochemical expression of Arp2/3 complex in 88 oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs) and correlated it with the tumor type and grade. Materials and methods: This is a retrospective study of 88 cases of OSCCs (9 verrucous carcinomas, 4 carcinomas in situ, 37 well differentiated OSCCs, 32 moderately differentiated OSCCs, and 6 poorly differentiated OSCCs), stained with mouse monoclonal antibodies for Arp2 and Arp3. Staining was graded according to the extent of positivity by two observers. Results: Arp2 positivity was seen in 79 (89.77%) cases and Arp3 positivity in 78 (88.63%) cases. In positive cases, Arp2 expression was graded as (+) in 12.5%, (++) in 28.4% and (+++) in 48.86% of the cases; Arp3 was graded as (+) in 36.36%, (++) in 30.68% and (+++) in 21.59% of the cases. Conclusion: Expression of Arp2 and Arp3, indicative of the formation of the Arp2/3 complex, was seen in most OSCCs examined. Although no statistically significant correlation was found between

Oral cancer accounts for about 3-4% of all cancers. Of all oral cancers, 96% are carcinomas and 4% are sarcomas. The most common type of oral cancer is squamous-cell carcinoma, constituting about 90% of oral malignancies.1 Tobacco smoke contains a number of hydrocarbons that are powerful carcinogens. Tobacco smoke and unburned tobacco, used in chewing or snuff dipping, also contain several potent nitrosamines. These chemicals are all DNA-toxic carcinogens that may play a key role in the initiation and promotion of specific types of cancer such as squamous-cell carcinoma and verrucous carcinoma2 (Figs. 1 and 2). Although the most common intraoral site for carcinoma is the posterior ventrolateral border of the tongue, the floor of the mouth is also frequently affected. Together with the retromolar region, these areas form a horseshoe-shaped zone of increased cancer susceptibility and the location of about 75-85% of all intraoral cancers3 (Fig. 3). Squamous-cell carcinoma of the tongue is the most ...

HSV infection in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients and other immunodeficiency states with T-cell defects is common and often presents with more severe and chronic disease. Recurrent outbreaks are more painful, more widespread, last longer, are poorly responsive to therapy, and have a higher risk of viremic dissemination. In addition, genital HSV infections in immunocompromised patients can have atypical presentations. Verrucous and exophytic nodules resembling condyloma acuminatum and verrucous carcinoma have been described. Chronic, nonhealing, painful ulcers occur, particularly in the perianal region. Infection with genital HSV confers an increased risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV. Others at risk for this include marrow and solid organ transplant patients and patients with lymphoma and leukemia ...

Penile carcinoma (PeCa) represents an important public health problem in poor and developing countries. Despite its unpredictable behavior and aggressive treatment, there have only been a few reports regarding its molecular data, especially epigenetic mechanisms. The functional diversity in different cell types is acquired by chromatin modifications, which are established by epigenetic regulatory mechanisms involving DNA methylation, histone acetylation, and miRNAs. Recent evidence indicates that the dysregulation in these processes can result in the development of several diseases, including cancer. Epigenetic alterations, such as the methylation of CpGs islands, may reveal candidates for the development of specific markers for cancer detection, diagnosis and prognosis. There are a few reports on the epigenetic alterations in PeCa, and most of these studies have only focused on alterations in specific genes in a limited number of cases. This review aims to provide an overview of the current knowledge

7,12-Dimethylbenz(a)anthrazene (DMBA) is a carcinogen that induces carcinomas within a few weeks of application. Forty-four male hamsters were divided into four groups: DMBA dissolved in paraffin oil (DMBA-PO), DMBA dissolved in olive oil (DMBA-OO), paraffin oil and olive oil. Their mouths were swabbed daily with paraffin oil or extra virgin olive oil alternatively for the first two weeks, during the biweekly application of DMBA at 0.5% diluted in paraffin oil or olive oil for five weeks and daily until the twentieth week. The animals in the DMBA-OO and olive oil groups received an additional diet of mature Picual olives. The DMBA-PO carcinogen effect (35 carcinomas) is 100% and the inhibitory effect 0. The use of olive oil as DMBA solvent and the ad libitum diet with Picual olive has an inhibitory effect of 80%, with only three intraepithelial carcinomas and four verrucous carcinomas occurring and no invasive carcinoma.

Bowens disease of the skin. This is an early form of skin cancer that may develop as a result of long-term exposure to the sun. It is easily curable as it does not metastasise (spread) and it stays within the top layer of the skin (the epidermis), so is easily excised. There is a small chance that a Bowens disease lesion will become a malignant (cancerous) squamous cell carcinoma, so early treatment is recommended. - Stock Image C021/3552

Bowens disease is a type of skin disorder that is closely linked to skin cancer, often affecting the outermost skin layer called epidermis. This form of skin disorder is slow growing with higher chances of favorable prognosis. People suffering from this condition notice a red and flaky skin patch on the lower part of their legs which they sometimes thought of as psoriasis.. Bowens disease is also referred to squamous cell carcinoma in situ, so individuals who have it should start treatment immediately as the condition may aggravate to cancer (squamous cell carcinoma). There is variety of ways to treat Bowens disease, all of which are often successful.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The association between fecal hemoglobin concentration and oral potentially malignant disorders. AU - Yen, Amy Ming Fang. AU - Wang, Sen Te. AU - Feng, Sheng Wei. AU - Lin, Che Tong. AU - Chen, Sam Li Sheng. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Objectives: The present study was to investigate the association between fecal hemoglobin (f-Hb) concentration and oral cancer and its precursor, oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD). Methods: We used a population-based longitudinal cohort study data based on both Taiwanese nationwide oral and colorectal cancer screening programs implemented between 2004 and 2009. The total of 235,234 smokers and/or betel-quid chewers aged 50 to 69 years free of oral cancer and OPMD at entry were followed up over time to quantify the association between baseline f-Hb concentration on newly diagnosed oral cancer and OPMD. Results: The risk of OPMD increased with baseline f-Hb in a dose manner, yielding a statistically significant elevated risk of ...

In spite of tremendous progress in the field of molecular biology there is yet no single marker that reliably predicts malignant transformation of a potentially malignant disorder of the oral mucosa. Therefore, it is recommended to excise or laser any oral of oropharyngeal leukoplakia/erythroplakia, if feasible, irrespective of the presence or absence of dysplasia. However, it is actually unknown whether such removal truly prevents the possible development of a squamous cell carcinoma. Therefore, lifelong follow-up is recommended at intervals of no more than 6 months ...

Thirty one patients with carcinoma of penis were studied retrospectively at Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, over a 20-year period (1971-1990). The majority of patients presented late with symptomatology of over one year duration. 88% of patients with carcinoma were uncircumcised, while the three (12%) patients who were circumcised but developed carcinoma were all circumcised late in adolescence and adulthood, confirming that late circumcision may not protect one from developing penile carcinoma as reported in literature. These findings also indicate that carcinoma of penis may be rare in this locality but is still common among the uncircumcised African tribes ...
