In addition multiple isoforms of subtypes have been found which may be due to GENE DUPLICATION.
A usually small, slow-growing neoplasm composed of islands of rounded, oxyphilic, or spindle-shaped cells of medium size, with moderately small vesicular nuclei, and covered by intact mucosa with a yellow cut surface. The tumor can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract (and in the lungs and other sites); approximately 90% arise in the appendix. It is now established that these tumors are of neuroendocrine origin and derive from a primitive stem cell. (From Stedman, 25th ed & Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1182)

Analysis of TSG101 tumour susceptibility gene transcripts in cervical and endometrial cancers. (1/2234)

Carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a common malignancy among women that has been found to show loss of heterozygosity in the chromosome 11p. Recent studies have localized the TSG101 gene in this region, and also demonstrated a high frequency of abnormalities of this gene in human breast cancer. To determine the role of the TSG101 gene in the carcinogenesis of cervical and uterine carcinoma, 19 cases of cervical carcinoma and five cases of endometrial carcinoma, as well as nearby non-cancerous tissue from the same patients, and 16 blood samples from healthy persons as normal control were analysed by Southern blot analysis of genomic DNA, reverse transcription of the TSG101 mRNA followed by PCR amplification and sequencing of the products. We found that abnormal transcripts of the TSG101 gene were common both in cancerous or non-cancerous tissues of the uterus and cervix and in normal peripheral mononuclear cells. There was no genomic deletion or rearrangement in spite of the presence of abnormal transcripts, and no definite relationship between the abnormal transcripts and HPV infection was found. Although the frequency of abnormal transcripts was higher in cancerous than in non-cancerous tissue, normal peripheral mononuclear cells also had abnormal transcripts. Given these findings, the role of the TSG101 gene as a tumour-suppressor gene should be re-evaluated. Because some aberrant transcripts could be found at the first PCR reaction, we suggest that the aberrant transcripts might be the result of imperfect minor splicesome products.  (+info)

Low levels of cathepsin D are associated with a poor prognosis in endometrial cancer. (2/2234)

Total cytosolic cathepsin D (Cat D) levels were estimated by an immunoradiometric assay in a series of 156 consecutive patients with surgical stages I-III primary endometrial adenocarcinoma. Simultaneously, the tissue content of both oestrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) receptors, and p185HER-2/neu, DNA content (ploidy), and the fraction of S-phase cells (S-phase) were also estimated. Tumoral Cat D content ranged from 0 to 243 pmol mg(-1) protein (median 44 pmol mg(-1) protein) and was not associated with any of the established clinicopathological and biological prognostic variables, with the exception of a weak positive correlation with the tumoral p185HER-2/neu levels. Univariable analysis performed on a subset of 97 patients, followed for a minimum of 2 years or until death, showed that patient age at diagnosis, high histological grade, advanced surgical stage, vascular invasion, positive peritoneal cytology, low levels of Cat D, negative ER and PR status, aneuploidy, and high S-phase were predictive of the presence of persistent or recurrent disease. However, multivariable analysis revealed that only histological grade, surgical stage, Cat D and PR were significantly associated with the patient's outcome. From these findings, we conclude that Cat D is an independent prognostic factor in endometrial adenocarcinoma, its low levels being associated with a worse clinical outcome.  (+info)

Cancer risk in close relatives of women with early-onset breast cancer--a population-based incidence study. (3/2234)

Inherited susceptibility to breast cancer is associated with an early onset and bilateral disease. The extent of familial risks has not, however, been fully assessed in population-based incidence studies. The purpose of the study was to quantify the risks for cancers of the breast, ovary and other sites of close relatives of women in whom breast cancer was diagnosed at an early age. Records collected between 1943 and 1990 at the Danish Cancer Registry were searched, and 2860 women were found in whom breast cancer was diagnosed before age 40. Population registers and parish records were used to identify 14 973 parents, siblings and offspring of these women. Cancer occurrence through to 31 December 1993 was determined within the Cancer Registry's files and compared with national incidence rates. Women with early-onset breast cancer were at a nearly fourfold increased risk of developing a new cancer later in life (268 observed vs. 68.9 expected). The excess risk was most evident for second cancer of the breast (181 vs. 24.5) and for ovarian cancer (20 vs. 3.3). For mothers and sisters, risks for cancers of the breast and ovary were significantly increased by two- to threefold. Bilateral breast cancer and breast-ovarian cancer were very strong predictors of familial risks, with one in four female relatives predicted to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer by age 75. Mothers had a slightly increased risk of colon cancer, but not endometrial cancer. The risk for breast cancer was also increased among fathers (standardized incidence ratio 2.5; 95% CI 0.5-7.4) and especially brothers (29; 7.7-74), although based on small numbers. The risk for prostatic cancer was unremarkable. In this large population-based survey, the first-degree relatives of women who developed breast cancer before age 40 were prone to ovarian cancer as well as male and female breast cancer, but not other tumours that may share susceptibility genes with breast cancer.  (+info)

Molecular mechanisms of proliferation in endometrial tumour cells. (4/2234)

The human endometrium normally undergoes a cyclic proliferation process followed by differentiation under the influence of ovarian steroids and locally produced growth and differentiation factors. Understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in controlling these processes is of great interest, since imbalances between proliferation- and differentiation-promoting signals can have pathophysiological consequences ranging from infertility to endometrial hyperplasia and tumour formation. The present work reviews aspects of the role played by oncogenes and ovarian steroid receptors in modulating proliferation of endometrial tumour cells. The expression pattern and possible roles of protein kinase C (PKC) subunits are discussed in the context of response-specificity of endometrial tumour cells to tumour-promoting agents such as 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol acetate (TPA) and possible implications for anti-tumour therapy.  (+info)

A common MSH2 mutation in English and North American HNPCC families: origin, phenotypic expression, and sex specific differences in colorectal cancer. (5/2234)

The frequency, origin, and phenotypic expression of a germline MSH2 gene mutation previously identified in seven kindreds with hereditary non-polyposis cancer syndrome (HNPCC) was investigated. The mutation (A-->T at nt943+3) disrupts the 3' splice site of exon 5 leading to the deletion of this exon from MSH2 mRNA and represents the only frequent MSH2 mutation so far reported. Although this mutation was initially detected in four of 33 colorectal cancer families analysed from eastern England, more extensive analysis has reduced the frequency to four of 52 (8%) English HNPCC kindreds analysed. In contrast, the MSH2 mutation was identified in 10 of 20 (50%) separately identified colorectal families from Newfoundland. To investigate the origin of this mutation in colorectal cancer families from England (n=4), Newfoundland (n=10), and the United States (n=3), haplotype analysis using microsatellite markers linked to MSH2 was performed. Within the English and US families there was little evidence for a recent common origin of the MSH2 splice site mutation in most families. In contrast, a common haplotype was identified at the two flanking markers (CA5 and D2S288) in eight of the Newfoundland families. These findings suggested a founder effect within Newfoundland similar to that reported by others for two MLH1 mutations in Finnish HNPCC families. We calculated age related risks of all, colorectal, endometrial, and ovarian cancers in nt943+3 A-->T MSH2 mutation carriers (n=76) for all patients and for men and women separately. For both sexes combined, the penetrances at age 60 years for all cancers and for colorectal cancer were 0.86 and 0.57, respectively. The risk of colorectal cancer was significantly higher (p<0.01) in males than females (0.63 v 0.30 and 0.84 v 0.44 at ages 50 and 60 years, respectively). For females there was a high risk of endometrial cancer (0.5 at age 60 years) and premenopausal ovarian cancer (0.2 at 50 years). These intersex differences in colorectal cancer risks have implications for screening programmes and for attempts to identify colorectal cancer susceptibility modifiers.  (+info)

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue conjugates with strong selective antitumor activity. (6/2234)

Conjugation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues GnRH-III, MI-1544, and MI-1892 through lysyl side chains and a tetrapeptide spacer, Gly-Phe-Leu-Gly (X) to a copolymer, poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone-co-maleic acid) (P) caused increased antiproliferative activity toward MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast, PC3 and LNCaP prostate, and Ishikawa endometrial cancer cell lines in culture and against tumor development by xenografts of the breast cancer cells in immunodeficient mice. MCF-7 cells treated with P-X-1544 and P-X-1892 displayed characteristic signs of apoptosis, including vacuoles in the cytoplasm, rounding up, apoptotic bodies, bleb formation, and DNA fragmentation. Conjugates, but not free peptides, inhibited cdc25 phosphatase and caused accumulation of Ishikawa and PC3 cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle after 24 h at lower doses and in the G1 and G2 phases after 48 h. Since P-X-peptides appear to be internalized, the increased cytotoxicity of the conjugates is attributed to protection of peptides from proteolysis, enhanced interaction of the peptides with the GnRH receptors, and/or internalization of P-X-peptide receptor complexes so that P can exert toxic effects inside, possibly by inhibiting enzymes involved in the cell cycle. The additional specificity of P-X-peptides compared with free peptides for direct antiproliferative effects on the cancer cells but not for interactions in the pituitary indicates the therapeutic potential of the conjugates.  (+info)

MLH1 promoter methylation and gene silencing is the primary cause of microsatellite instability in sporadic endometrial cancers. (7/2234)

Defective DNA mismatch repair in human tumors leads to genome-wide instability of microsatellite repeats and a molecular phenotype referred to as microsatellite instability (MSI). MSI has been reported in a variety of cancers and is a consistent feature of tumors from patients with hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer. Approximately 20% of cancers of the uterine endometrium, the fifth most common cancer of women world-wide, exhibit MSI. Although the frequency of MSI is higher in endometrial cancers than in any other common malignancy, the genetic basis of MSI in these tumors has remained elusive. We investigated the role that methylation of the MLH1 DNA mismatch repair gene plays in the genesis of MSI in a large series of sporadic endometrial cancers. The MLH1 promoter was methylated in 41 of 53 (77%) MSI-positive cancers investigated. In MSI-negative tumors on the other hand, there was evidence for limited methylation in only one of 11 tumors studied. Immunohistochemical investigation of a subset of the tumors revealed that methylation of the MLH1 promoter in MSI-positive tumors was associated with loss of MLH1 expression. Immunohistochemistry proved that two MSI-positive tumors lacking MLH1 methylation failed to express the MSH2 mismatch repair gene. Both of these cancers came from women who had family and medical histories suggestive of inherited cancer susceptibility. These observations suggest that epigenetic changes in the MLH1 locus account for MSI in most cases of sporadic endometrial cancers and provide additional evidence that the MSH2 gene may contribute substantially to inherited forms of endometrial cancer.  (+info)

Mismatch repair gene defects contribute to the genetic basis of double primary cancers of the colorectum and endometrium. (8/2234)

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is a dominantly inherited cancer syndrome caused by germline defects of mismatch repair (MMR) genes. Endometrial cancer is the most common extracolonic neoplasm in HNPCC and is the primary clinical manifestation of the syndrome in some families. The cumulative incidence of endometrial cancer among HNPCC mutation carriers is high, estimated to be from 22 to 43%. We hypothesized that women with double primary cancers of the colorectum and endometrium are likely to be members of HNPCC families. In order to determine how frequently HNPCC manifests in the context of double primary cancers, we examined alterations of two MMR genes, hMSH2 and hMLH1, in 40 unrelated women affected with double primary cancers. These cases were identified using hospital-based and population-based cancer registries in Ontario, Canada. MMR gene mutations were screened by single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis and confirmed by direct sequencing. Eighteen percent (seven of 40) were found to harbor mutations of one of the two MMR genes. Analysis of colorectal and/or endometrial tumors of mutation-negative probands found microsatellite instability in seven of 20 cases. Six of seven mutation-positive probands had strong family histories suggestive of HNPCC. First degree relatives of mutation-positive probands had a very high relative risk (RR) of colorectal cancer (RR = 8.1, CI 3. 5-15.9) and endometrial cancer (RR = 23.8, CI 6.4-61.0). The relative risk of mutation-negative cases was 2.8 (CI 1.7-4.5) for colorectal cancer and 5.4 (CI 2.0-11.7) for endometrial cancer. We recommend that all double primary patients with cancers at these sites should have a genetic evaluation, including molecular analysis for HNPCC where appropriate.  (+info)

MicroRNA-340 Inhibits Tumor Cell Proliferation and Induces Apoptosis in Endometrial Carcinoma Cell Line RL 95-2 - Order reprints #898121
Endometrial cancer is the most common malignancy of the female reproductive tract. The majority of patients with endometrial cancer are diagnosed at an early stage and cured with surgery with or without adjuvant radiotherapy. However, a significant number of patients present with metastatic disease outside of the pelvis or develop recurrent disease after primary therapy.. mTOR inhibitors have been shown to be promising agents in reducing tumor growth in vitro and in vivo, in several solid cancers. Inhibitors of mTOR are primarily cytostatic in cancer cells; combination therapy with cytotoxic chemotherapeutics and other biologic agents may prove to be the most advantageous use of these drugs. mTOR inhibition with a rapamycin analogue demonstrated in vitro antiproliferative activity on endometrial AN3 CA and HEC-1-A tumor cells, and this inhibition of proliferation was found to be concentration dependent. Topotecan is an active agent in the treatment of advanced and recurrent endometrial cancers. ...

Endometrial cancer (EC) is one of the most common gynecological malignancies globally. Although progress has been made in surgical and other adjuvant therapies, there is still a great need to develop new approaches to further reduce the incidence and mortality of EC. Oncolytic virotherapy offers a novel promising option of cancer treatment and has demonstrated good efficacy in preclinical models and clinical trials. However, only few oncolytic viruses have been tested for EC treatment. In this study, the potential of an oncolytic coxsackievirus B3 (CV-B3) strain 2035A (CV-B3/2035A) was investigated as a novel biotherapeutic agent against EC. Human EC cell lines (Ishikawa, HEC-1-A and HEC-1-B) were infected with CV-B3/2035A, and viral replication and cytotoxic effects were evaluated in vitro. CV-B3/2035A-induced oncolysis was also investigated in nude mice bearing EC xenografts in vivo and in patient-derived EC samples ex vivo.

We evaluated the efficacy and safety of the aromatase inhibitor exemestane in patients with advanced, persistent or recurrent endometrial carcinoma. We performed an open-label one-arm, two-stage, phase II study of 25 mg of oral exemestane in 51 patients with advanced (FIGO stage III-IV) or relapsed endometrioid endometrial cancer. Patients were stratified into subsets of estrogen receptor (ER) positive and ER negative patients. Recruitment to the ER negative group was stopped prematurely after 12 patients due to slow accrual. In the ER positive patients, we observed an overall response rate of 10%, and a lack of progression after 6 months in 35% of the patients. No responses were registered in the ER negative patients, and all had progressive disease within 6 months. For the total group of patients, the median progression free survival (PFS) was 3.1 months (95% CI: 2.0-4.1). In the ER positive patients the median PFS was 3.8 months (95% CI: 0.7-6.9) and in the ER negative patients it was 2.6 months (95%
One-carbon metabolism dietary factors, including levels of folate, choline, methionine, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 or vitamin B12, do not effect the endometrial incidence(4). But in Type I and II endometrial cancer study, intake of use of supplements containing folate and vitamins B2, B6, and B12 was associated with an increased risk of type II endometrial cancer.(5). The Folate (FOL) mediated poly-lactide-co-glycolide-polyethylene glycol nanoparticles (FOL-PEG-PLGA NPs) bearing paclitaxel (PTX), was found to be effective in indcution of cytotoxicity against HEC-1A cancer cells in vitro and in vivo, through possibly induced apoptosis(6). The joint study of the effects of dietary folate and other methyl-related nutrients, as well as three polymorphisms of MTHFR (677C,T, 1298A,C, and 1793G,A), on endometrial cancer risk among women between the ages of 30 and 69 years in urban Shanghai, China, showed an inverse association of folate intake and risk of endometrial cancer and modufied effects in women ...

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynaecological cancer in New Zealand and the incidence is increasing as the population ages. Genetic predictors of endometrial cancer risk that allow early detection of the disease are important for prevention and improved management strategies. Mutations in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS1 and PMS2 are known to confer increased risk in a proportion of endometrial cancer cases, and the mutation spectrum includes copy number variants (CNVs). There are several other genes encoding proteins that act in the MMR pathways, but to date the evidence for their involvement in endometrial cancer predisposition is limited. This study aims to 1) To identify genes in the MMR pathway that are overlapped by CNVs in endometrial cancer cases, 2) To compare the CNV frequency of common and rare CNVs between endometrial cancer cases and controls, 3) To identify regions in the genome that are associated with endometrial cancer risk, and 4) To identify ...
3,3′-Diindolylmethane (DIM), a major in vivo product of indole-3-carbinol (I3C), is a promising anticancer agent derived from vegetables of the Brassica genus including broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. We report here that DIM has a potent cytostatic effect in cultured human Ishikawa endometrial cancer cells. A combination of northern blot and quantitative PCR analyses revealed that DIM induced the level of TGF-α transcripts by ~4-fold within 24 h of indole treatment. DIM also induced a 4-fold increase in the activity of the estrogen response marker, alkaline phosphatase (AP). Co-treatment of cells with the estrogen receptor (ER) antagonist ICI, or with the inhibitor of PKA-mediated activation of the ER, H89, ablated the DIM induction of both TGF-α expression and AP activity. Furthermore, DIM increased the maximum stimulatory effect of estrogen on TGF-α expression. Co-treatment with the protein synthesis inhibitor, cycloheximide, abolished the inductive effects of DIM, indicating ...

Objective:To explore the relationship between expression of ERRα mRNA and estrogen and progesterone and to elucidate the function of ERRα in endometrial carcinoma. Methods:The expression of ERRα mRNA was examined by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Endometrial carcinoma cell line Ishikawa was dealt with different concentrations of 17β-estradiol(10 -10 mol/L,10 -8 mol/L and 10 -6 mol/L) for 15 min,30 min and 24 h and 17β-estradiol and ER inhibitor-ICI182780 were given concomitantly to observe the change of ERRα mRNA. Different concentrations of progesterone (10 -8 mol/L,10 -7 mol/L,10 -6 mol/L and 10 -5 mol/L)were also given to Ishikawa cell line for 24 h to observe the change of ERRα mRNA. Results:The expression level of ERRα mRNA was slightly higher than that of the control group after being stimulated for 15 min, 30 min and 24 h by 10 -10 mol/L 17β-estradiol. However the expression level of ERRα mRNA was significantly lower than that of
Introduction: Endometrial cancer patients with high grade tumours, deep myometrial invasion or advanced stage disease have a poor prognosis. Randomised studies have demonstrated the prevention of loco-regional relapses with radiotherapy (RT) with no effect on overall survival (OS). The possible additive effect of chemotherapy (CT) remains unclear. Two randomised clinical trials (NSGO-EC-9501/EORTC-55991 and MaNGO ILIADE-III) were undertaken to clarify if sequential combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy improves progression-free survival (PFS) in high-risk endometrial cancer. The two studies were pooled. Methods: Patients (n = 540; 534 evaluable) with operated endometrial cancer International Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (FIGO) stage I-III with no residual tumour andprognostic factors implying high-risk were randomly allocated to adjuvant radiotherapy with or without sequential chemotherapy. Results: In the NSGO/EORTC study, the combined modality treatment was associated with ...

The fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGF/FGFR) signaling has a significant role in normal organ development, like vascular and skeletal development. The dysregulation of the fibroblast growth receptor signaling occursdue to genetic modification or over expression of the receptor. This has been observed in different carcinomas [34,35].The endometrial carcinoma is the most common gynecologic malignancy in western counties and fourth most common cancer among women worldwide.Type I endometrial carcinomas constitute approximately 70 to 80% of all endometrium cancer.Itfollows estrogens related pathways in carcinogenesis. The BDII rat model is an ideal model for hormonal carcinogenesis because 90% of the female virgin spontaneously develop type I hormone independent endometrial adenocarcinomas within two years of age. Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) ligands via FGFR combined with heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HPSG) in extracellular matrix with the help of proteases and participate in the signal ...
Our objective was to determine if previously reported overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) rates are maintained long term following multimodal therapy for advanced and recurrent endometrial cancer and to assess the lymphedema rates associated with this therapy. Women with advanced-stage or recurrent endometrial cancer were recruited between 9/2004 and 6/2009 to our previously published Phase II trial. Patients received intravenous docetaxel (75 mg/m2) and carboplatin (AUC = 6) every 3 weeks for 3 cycles before and after radiation therapy. Patient outcomes were updated in July 2014. Data abstracted included presence of lymphedema, disease progression, and death. OS and PFS estimates at 5 years were calculated using Kaplan-Meier methods. Of the 41 patients enrolled, 10 (24 %) had stage IIIA and 21 (51 %) had stage IIIC disease; 32 (78 %) had endometrioid histology; and 35 (85 %) completed the protocol. With a median follow-up of 5 years, 15 of 41 patients have died. The Kaplan-Meier
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and its receptor (EGFR) constitute a principal growth-promoting pathway in endometrial cancer cells. Pre-clinical studies were undertaken to compare the expression of EGFR isoforms and the downstream effects of activating or blocking EGFR function in Ishikawa H cells, derived from a moderately differentiated type I endometrioid adenocarcinoma, or in Hec50co cells, derived from a poorly differentiated type II adenocarcinoma with papillary serous sub-differentiation. We investigated whether EGFR mutations are present in the tyrosine kinase domain (exons 18-22) of EGFR and also whether EGFR isoforms are expressed in the Ishikawa H or Hec50co cell lines. Sequence of the EGFR tyrosine kinase domain proved to be wild type in both cell lines. While both cell lines expressed full-length EGFR (isoform A), EGFR and sEGFR (isoform D) were expressed at significantly lower levels in Hec50co cells compared to Ishikawa H cells.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate serum HE4 as a biomarker to detect recurrent disease during follow-up of patients with endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). We performed a retrospective analysis of 98 EAC patients treated at Innsbruck Medical University, between 1999 and 2009. Twenty-six patients developed recurrent disease. Median follow-up was 5 years. Serum HE4 and CA125 levels were analyzed using the ARCHITECT assay (Abbott, Wiesbaden, Germany) pre-operatively (baseline), post-operative (interval) and after histological confirmation of recurrent disease or when patients returned for clinical review with no evidence of recurrent disease (recurrence/final)). Receiver operator curves (ROC), Spearman rank correlation coefficient, chi-squared and Mann-Whitney tests were used for statistical analysis. HE4 levels decreased after initial treatment (p = 0.001) and increased again at recurrence (p = 0.002). HE4 was elevated (>70 pmol/L) in 21 of 26 (81%) and CA125 was elevated (>35 U/ml) in 12 of 26 (46
Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy in the United States. An estimated 47,130 women were diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2012, and an estimated 8,010 of these women will die of the disease (1). Type I endometrial cancer account for approximately 80% of cases, are classically of endometrioid histology, and are associated with obesity in up to 90% of cases. In addition, type II diabetes is associated with an increased risk for the development of endometrial cancer (2, 3).. The oral biguanide, metformin, is one of the most commonly used hypoglycemic agents in the management of type II diabetes. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that diabetic patients being treated with metformin have a reduced cancer incidence or improved response to chemotherapy when compared with patients receiving other oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin (4-6). A meta-analysis of 5 observational studies of all cancer types found that metformin was associated with a 31% decrease in cancer risk ...
On the basis of clinical and pathologic criteria, endometrial carcinoma has been distinguished as types I (mainly endometrioid) and II (nonendometrioid). Limited data suggest that these subtypes have different risk factor profiles. The authors prospectively evaluated risk factors for types I (n = 1,312) and II (n = 138) incident endometrial carcinoma among 114,409 women in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-AARP Diet and Health Study (1995-2006). For individual risk factors, relative risks were estimated with Cox regression by subtype, and P(heterogeneity) was assessed in case-case comparisons with type I as the referent. Stronger relations for type I versus Type II tumors were seen for menopausal hormone therapy use (relative risk (RR) of 1.18 vs. 0.84; P(heterogeneity) = 0.01) and body mass index of ≥30 vs. |30 kg/m2 (RR of 2.93 vs. 1.83; P(heterogeneity) = 0.001). Stronger relations for type II versus type I tumors were observed for being black versus white (RR of 2.18 vs. 0.66; P
Introduction: Endometrial carcinoma ranks 3rd in India among gynecological malignancies. Endometrial cancer (EC) can be classified into two distinct groups - type I and type II, based on histology, which differs in molecular, clinical and histopathological profiles. Type II is nonestrogen dependent, nonendometrioid, more aggressive and carries poor prognosis. Although type II cancers contribute only about 10% of EC incidence, they present at advanced age and cause approximately 50% recurrence and deaths with a low 5‑year, overall survival rate. Type II EC are also characterized by genetic alterations in p53, human epidermal growth factor‑2/neu, p16 and E‑cadherin. Materials and Methods: Endometrial carcinomas diagnosed from endometrial biopsies and hysterectomy specimens received in the Department of Pathology, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, from January 2007 to June 2012 were included in the study. Clinicopathological analysis of the 84 cases of EC was done with emphasis on ...

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy. It is the fourth most common cancer in women in the United States after breast, lung, and colorectal cancers. Risk factors are related to excessive unopposed exposure of the endometrium to estrogen, including unopposed estrogen therapy, early menarche, late menopause, tamoxifen therapy, nulliparity, infertility or failure to ovulate, and polycystic ovary syndrome. Additional risk factors are increasing age, obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer. The most common presentation for endometrial cancer is postmenopausal bleeding. The American Cancer Society recommends that all women older than 65 years be informed of the risks and symptoms of endometrial cancer and advised to seek evaluation if symptoms occur. There is no evidence to support endometrial cancer screening in asymptomatic women. Evaluation of a patient with suspected disease should include a pregnancy test in women of childbearing age
Loss of heterozygosity of chromosome 10q has been reported in approximately 40% of endometrial carcinomas. PTEN, a candidate tumor suppressor gene located at chromosome 10q23.3, was recently identified and found to be homozygously deleted or mutated in several different types of human tumors. To determine if PTEN is a target of 10q loss of heterozygosity in carcinomas of the endometrium, we examined 32 primary endometrial carcinomas for mutations in PTEN. The tumors included the two major histopathological types of endometrial carcinoma: endometrioid (n = 26; 14 microsatellite instability (MI)-positive and 12 MI-negative) and serous (n = 6). Overall, mutations were detected in 50% of the endometrial carcinomas we analyzed. Mutations were present in 12 of 14 (86%) MI-positive and 4 of 12 (33%) MI-negative endometrioid tumors. Furthermore, mutations were found in all three histological grades of MI-positive endometrioid carcinoma. All six serous endometrial carcinomas lacked detectable mutations. ...
In this study, women with the A2 allele of CYP17 were at decreased risk of endometrial cancer. Among postmenopausal women, we did not detect strong associations between CYP17 genotype and circulating steroid hormone levels. We did observe a significant interaction between CYP17 genotype and first-degree family history of endometrial and colorectal cancer, but we did not observe the endometrial cancer risk that is associated with CYP17 genotype to be substantially altered by other established hormone-related endometrial cancer risk factors.. The established risk factors for endometrial cancer are understood to act by altering chronic estrogen exposure unopposed by progesterone (3) . Likewise, the hypothesized mechanism through which genetic variation in CYP17 may influence endometrial cancer risk is by altering a womans lifetime exposure to endogenous steroid hormones. On the basis of the enzymatic steps catalyzed by CYP17, we would expect carriers of one or two A2 alleles to have elevated ...
OBJECTIVES : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of cigarette smoking and alcohol use on the risk of endometrial cancer. The impact of smoking on serum estrone, estradiol, and androstenedione levels also was examined. STUDY DESIGN : This hospital-based case-control study included 168 women with endometrial carcinoma and 334...

Prolonged excessive estrogen exposure unopposed by progesterone is widely accepted to be a risk factor for endometrial cancer development. The physiological function of progesterone is dependent upon the presence of its receptor [progesterone receptor (PGR)] and several studies have reported single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the PGR gene to be associated with endometrial cancer risk. We sought to confirm the associations with endometrial cancer risk previously reported for four different PGR polymorphisms. A maximum of 2888 endometrial cancer cases and 4483 female control subjects from up to three studies were genotyped for four PGR polymorphisms (rs1042838, rs10895068, rs11224561 and rs471767). Logistic regression with adjustment for age, study, ethnicity and body mass index was performed to calculate odds ratios (ORs) and associated 95% confidence intervals (CIs) and P-values. Of the four SNPs investigated, only rs11224561 in the 3′ region of the PGR gene was found to be ...
Progesterone resistance is a problem in endometrial carcinoma, and its underlying molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. The aim of this study was to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of progesterone resistance and to identify the key genes and pathways mediating progesterone resistance in endometrial cancer using bioinformatics analysis. We developed a stable MPA (medroxyprogesterone acetate)-resistant endometrial cancer cell subline named IshikawaPR. Microarray analysis was used to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from triplicate samples of Ishikawa and IshikawaPR cells. PANTHER, DAVID and Metascape were used to perform gene ontology (GO), Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway enrichment analysis, and cBioPortal for progesterone receptor (PGR) coexpression analysis. GEO microarray (GSE17025) was utilized for validation. The protein-protein interaction network (PPI) and modular analyses were performed using Metascape and Cytoscape. Further validation were
Tamoxifen resistance and tamoxifen-induced endometrial proliferation are major limitations of tamoxifen therapy and chemoprevention. The present study shows that MSA inhibition of ERα signaling is not restricted to tamoxifen-sensitive MCF-7 cells. MSA antagonism of estradiol-dependent ERE2e1b-luciferase and endogenous c-myc and pS2 gene expression was shown in MCF-7-LCC2 cells, an ERα-positive, tamoxifen-resistant variant of the MCF-7 parental line and in two ERα-positive human endometrial cancer cell lines, Ishikawa and HEC1A (Figs. 1 and 2). In addition, MSA also blocked tamoxifen activation of these genes in endometrial Ishikawa and HEC1A cells (Fig. 1 and Fig. 2C-D, column 6). The major mechanism for MSA disruption of ER signaling in all ERα-positive cells lines was via rapid decrease of ERα mRNA and protein that preceded disruption of ERα-regulated gene expression (Figs. 3 and 4). MSA alone inhibited the growth of tamoxifen-sensitive, tamoxifen-resistant and endometrial-derived cells. ...

Endometrial cancer is the most frequently occurring malignancy of the female genital tract in Western countries. Although in many cases surgically curable, about 30% of the tumours represent an aggressive and untreatable disease. In an attempt to establish a reliable prognostic marker for endometrial carcinomas disregarding their histological diversity, we investigated the expression of KPNA2, a mediator of nucleocytoplasmic transport, and other cell proliferation-associated proteins and their correlation with cancer progression. We analysed patient tissue microarrays (TMAs) assembled from 527 endometrial cancer tissue specimens and uterus samples from a Trp53 knockout mouse model of endometrial cancer. Our data show that KPNA2 expression was significantly up-regulated in human endometrial carcinomas and associated with higher tumour grade (p = 0.026), higher FIGO stage (p = 0.027), p53 overexpression (p , 0.001), activation of the PI3K/AKT pathway, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition. ...

Endometrial cancer is currently the most common form of female reproductive tract tumors. The efficacy of treatment, which involves surgery, radiotherapy and systemic therapy, is increasing and the assessment of the quality of life of patients is subject to careful analysis. Difficulty in urination represents a major factor reducing the quality of life of patients. The aim of the study was to collect data on the urinary functioning and the quality of life in endometrial cancer patients considered cured after a combined treatment compared to patients after non-oncological hysterectomy. A total of 46 females divided into two groups were included in the study. Group I (study group) included 23 endometrial cancer patients (stage IA, G1-G2) after combined treatment, who received surgical treatment and adjuvant brachytherapy; group II (control group) included 23 patients after non-oncological hysterectomy and uterine appendage removal. The patients were assessed once, between month 6 and 12 after ...
Gynecological malignancies (ovarian clear cell and endometrioid carcinomas, endometrial serous, endometrioid and clear cell carcinomas) harbor somatic mutations in the gene PPP2R1A, the scaffolding subunit of the serine/threonine protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) complex. The PP2A complex is composed of an A (scaffold), C (catalytic) subunit, and different B (regulatory) subunits. The PPP2R1A mutations are proposed to play a role in PP2A B-subunit binding, and thus formation of a functional PP2A phosphatase complex. The aim of this study is to determine how PPP2R1A mutations affect the binding of B-subunits and other novel interactions within the context of ovarian and endometrial carcinomas.. The ovarian clear cell line RMG2 and endometrial carcinoma cell lines Hec-1-A and Hec50 all harbor PPP2R1A mutations. The mismatch repair deficient cell line Hec-1-A express a PPP2R1A W257L heterozygous mutation; therefore somatic cell knockout technology was used to generate isogenic PPP2R1A clones that ...
We found that attenuated the colony-forming ability. uterine cavity, is the most common gynecologic malignancy in developed countries1. Individuals with endometrial carcinoma are often diagnosed with an early-stage disease, which indicates a good prognosis. Although endometrial carcinoma is definitely a relatively workable malignancy, this disease can range from very easily controlled to aggressive. The individuals diagnosed at a late-stage with endometrial tumors metastasizing to the Tobramycin sulfate lymph nodes or distant organs often have Tobramycin sulfate limited restorative options and experience poor survival results2. SOX2, OCT4, and NANOG are expert transcription factors Rabbit Polyclonal to HES6 that form the regulatory circuitry to keep up stemness and prevent differentiation in embryonic stem cells (ESCs)3. These factors, once overexpressed with MYC, are able to reprogram differentiated somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells4,5. Moreover, it has been reported that poorly ...
Endometrial cancer is one of the most common malignancies of the reproductive female tract, with endometrioid endometrial cancer being the most frequent type. Despite the relatively favourable prognosis in cases of endometrial cancer, there is a necessity to evaluate clinical and prognostic utility of new molecular markers. MiRNAs are small, non-coding RNA molecules that take part in RNA silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Altered expression of miRNAs may be associated with cancer initiation, progression and metastatic capabilities. MiRNA-205 seems to be one of the key regulators of gene expression in endometrial cancer. In this study, we investigated clinical and prognostic role of miRNA-205 in endometrioid endometrial cancer. After total RNA extraction from 100 archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues, real-time quantitative RT-PCR was used to define miRNA-205 expression levels. The aim of the study was to evaluate miRNA-205 expression levels in regard to

Endometrioid tumors are a class of tumor characterized by a resemblance to endometrium/ endometrial carcinoma, and over a third of cases have focal squamous differentiation. They are part of the surface epithelial tumor group of ovarian neoplasms (10-20% of which are the endometrioid type). Benign and borderline variants are rare, as the majority are malignant. There is an association with endometriosis and concurrent primary endometrial carcinoma (endometrial cancer). On gross pathological examination, the tumor is cystic and may be solid and some arise in cystic endometriosis. In 40% of cases, endometrioid tumors are found bilaterally. Endometrioid carcinoma can also arise in the endometrium. Grades 1 and 2 are considered type 1 endometrial cancer, while grade 3 is considered type 2. Ovarian and endometrial endometrioid carcinomas have distinct CTNNB1 and PTEN gene mutation profiles. PTEN mutations are more frequent in low-grade endometrial endometrioid carcinomas (67%) compared with ...
Introduction: Endometrial hyperplasia produces a continuum of lesions that may be precursor to endometrial carcinoma of endometrioid histology. The World Health Organization (WHO) classification is currently the most commonly accepted system of classifying endometrial hyperplasias, the problems with which have prompted the development of an alternative system based on Endometrial Intraepithelial Neoplasia (EIN).Materials and Methods: We undertook the study using revised EIN criteria to differentiate EIN lesions from lookalikes. EIN diagnostic criterias, such as gland area,stromal area, cytologic change in focus of altered architecture, lesion size,1 mm and exclusion of cancer and mimics were applied on two hundred endometrial biopsies that were initially classified as hyperplasia using WHO classification system.Results: Out of total two hundred cases, 41.5% were diagnosed as simple typical hyperplasia, 19% cases as complex typical hyperplasia, 9.5% cases as simple atypical hyperplasia and 30% ...

OBJECTIVE We previously described vascular invasion-associated changes, defined as the presence of vascular invasion or perivascular lymphocytic infiltrates, as key prognostic indicators in stage I endometrioid carcinoma. The current study was undertaken to examine the prognostic value of HER-2/neu expression in relation to other factors, including vascular invasion-associated changes, in surgical stage I endometrioid carcinoma. STUDY DESIGN Seventy-one patients with surgical stage I endometrioid carcinoma treated by hysterectomy and followed up were randomly chosen for retrospective analysis of prognostic indicators including standard clincopathologic features, deoxyribonucleic acid ploidy, and HER-2/neu expression. The latter was examined by an objective computerized quantitative immunohistochemical system. RESULTS By univariate analysis many factors were found to correlate with outcome, including age, tumor grade, depth of invasion, ploidy, HER-2/neu expression, and vascular invasion-associated
Objective: The most commonly used classification system for endometrial hyperplasia is the World Health Organization system which is based on subjective criteria. Another classification system is endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia (EIN) system which uses diagnostic criteria including cytological demarcation, crowded gland architecture, minimum size of 1 mm, and careful exclusion of mimics, and aims to identify a precancer or cancer. The objective of this study was to compare the two classification systems in terms of predicting the presence of a coexistent cancer in surgically treated patients. ...

We have previously developed an in vitro model for human embryo implantation employing the human choriocarcinoma cell line JAR and the human endometrial adenocarcinoma cell line Ishikawa. Using this model we have shown that stimulation with ovarian steroid hormones (17β-estradiol and progesterone, E2P4) and suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA), a histone ...
Oestrogen receptor alpha (ER) plays a critical, diverse and not fully understood role in endometrial carcinoma. Most endometrial carcinomas express ER and some of these tumours respond favourably to anti-oestrogen therapy. On the other hand, tamoxifen therapy constitutes a major risk factor for endometrial carcinoma development. Amplification of the ESR1 gene encoding ER was recently shown to constitute a mechanism for ER over-expression in breast carcinoma. This study was designed to determine the potential role of ESR1 amplifications in endometrial carcinoma. Tissue microarrays of 368 endometrial carcinomas and large sections of 43 cases of endometrial hyperplasia were analysed for ESR1 gene amplification and ER protein expression by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and immunohistochemistry. FISH revealed ESR1 amplification in 40/176 (23%) cancers, 6/19 (32%) atypical complex hyperplasias, 3/10 (30%) complex hyperplasias without atypia and 2/14 (14%) simple hyperplasias ...
A enhanced the sensitivity to paclitaxel in each breast and prostate 15857111 cells. This effect of stathmin protein level on remedy response was restricted to anti-microtubule agents. Regrettably, none of these research have taken this knowledge to a subsequent level, integrating the results with clinical information. In endometrial cancer to our expertise no research, preclinical nor clinical, have explored an association amongst stathmin level and response to paclitaxel containing chemotherapy. In this report, we demonstrate in endometrial carcinoma cell lines, that reduction of stathmin levels by stathmin knock-down final results in improved response to paclitaxel. We also show for the initial time for you to the top of our knowledge, that stathmin protein level is linked with response to paclitaxel containing therapy in clinical samples from sufferers with metastatic endometrial carcinoma.

Here, to better understand the development of LGEC, we performed multiregion, comprehensive somatic molecular profiling of minute cell populations ranging from presumed precursor lesions through invasive LGEC. Through this high-depth (average ,1,000x coverage) approach on spatially defined populations with variable histology from 13 cases, we identified marked intratumoral mutational heterogeneity in presumed cancer driving genes in the vast majority of cases. Our work builds on two small series of LGEC precursors and invasive components, which support substantial intratumoral heterogeneity and branched evolution in LGEC development (7, 8); however, our study is the first to definitively demonstrate multiclonality in both spatially defined precursor and invasive populations. Our findings have important implications for understanding LGEC development, as well as efforts to identify prognostic and predictive biomarkers, such as CTNNB1.. Consistent with the known role of PI(3)K pathway deregulation ...

Historically, the approach of pre-operative radiation therapy with a combination of external beam radiation and low dose-rate (LDR) brachytherapy to doses of 60-70 Gy prescribed to point A was a standard approach in patients with endometrial cancer and significant co-morbidities. 10 More recently, there has been implementation of high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, 3D image-based planning, and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. In a study by Vargo et al, 11 the investigators evaluated patients with endometrial cancer who also had clinical involvement of the cervix with neoadjuvant external beam radiotherapy (45-50.4 Gy in 25-28 fractions) and image-based HDR brachytherapy (5-5.5 Gy times 3-4 fractions) plus chemotherapy followed by extra-fascial hysterectomy performed at a median of 6 weeks after radiotherapy. The authors found that at the time of surgery 91% of patients had no clinical cervical involvement, 58% had no pathological cervical involvement, and 24% had a complete pathologic response. ...
This prospective study examined several aspects of the relationship between BMI and endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women from the United States. First, among never-users of postmenopausal HT, the positive association between body mass and endometrial cancer was monotonic across the entire range of BMI examined, with a 51% reduction in risk among the leanest women and a 441% increase in risk among the heaviest women. Secondly, use of E + P HT modified the association between BMI and endometrial cancer. BMI was not significantly related with risk among women who had used E + P. Obesity was associated with a greater risk of both type I and type II endometrial cancers, although the association with type II cancers was driven by high-grade endometrioid tumors; the small number of cases with serous, clear cell, and papillary histology precluded meaningful analysis using this stricter definition.. Most of the 57 case-control and 24 prospective cohort analyses published to date (6, 8, 31-33) show ...

We previously identified TrkB as an oncogene involved in promoting metastasis in endometrial carcinoma (EC). Here, we sought to delineate the effect of changes in TrkB expression on the global profile of microRNAs (miRNAs) in EC cells and further investigated the correlation between the expression of certain miRNA and TrkB in the clinicopathologic characteristics of EC patients. Using quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR), we found that expression of TrkB mRNA has no significant difference in transcript levels between normal endometrium and EC cells captured by laser capture microdissection, while immunohistochemistry results demonstrated a markedly higher expression of TrkB protein in EC tissues. The microRNA array showed that ectopic overexpression and knockdown of TrkB expression caused global changes in miRNA expression in EC cells. qRT-PCR results showed that elevated TrkB repressed miR-204-5p expression in EC cells. Furthermore, immunoblotting assays revealed that TrkB overexpression in
Endometrial cancer is a common malignancy of the female genital tract. This study demonstrates that Siegesbeckia orientalis ethanol extract (SOE) significantly inhibited the proliferation of RL95-2 human endometrial cancer cells. Treating RL95-2 cells with SOE caused cell arrest in the G2/M phase and induced apoptosis of RL95-2 cells by up-regulating Bad, Bak and Bax protein expression and down-regulation of Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL protein expression. Treatment with SOE increased protein expression of caspase-3, -8 and -9 dose-dependently, indicating that apoptosis was through the intrinsic and extrinsic apoptotic pathways. Moreover, SOE was also effective against A549 (lung cancer), Hep G2 (hepatoma), FaDu (pharynx squamous cancer), MDA-MB-231 (breast cancer), and especially on LNCaP (prostate cancer) cell lines. In total, 10 constituents of SOE were identified by Gas chromatography-mass analysis. Caryophyllene oxide and caryophyllene are largely responsible for most cytotoxic activity of SOE against RL95-2
The value of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the assessment of women with endometrial hyperplasia and its role in diagnosis of myometrial invasion or coexistence of cancer is not known. This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy and usefulness of MRI in the management of patients diagnosed on endometrial biopsy with complex endometrial hyperplasia with atypia (CEHA). A retrospective study of 86 cases diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia with atypia on the initial endometrial biopsy in a tertiary university teaching hospital between 2010 and 2015 was carried out. The MRI accuracy in predicting malignant changes and influence the clinical management was compared among women who had either pelvic MRI, transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS), or no additional imagistic studies. MRI was performed in 24 (28%) and TVUS in 11 (13%)cases, while 51 (59%) women had no additional imagistic studies. In the group of women with no imaging studies, 26/51 (51%) were surgically treated and 8/26 (31%) were diagnosed with

A common etiologic event has been proposed between dyslipidemia and osteoporosis. However, the pattern of interrelationships among dyslipidemia, osteoporosis and endometrial cancer is not well understood. To improve the quality of life of endometrial cancer survivors, these relationships should be determined. This study included 179 Japanese menopausal women who underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, including 114 ...
01 June 2007 June 2007 - More than 20 researchers funded by the Canadian Cancer Society were recently invited to present their latest findings at the prestigious American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting in Chicago in June 2007. Their research is focused on new ways to treat a variety of cancers including breast, prostate, lung and gastrointestinal cancers. Among the presentations:. Dr Jane Orton presented the early results of a study that may mean future patients with endometrial cancer will not need to receive unnecessary treatments that could impact their quality of life. The early results showed that radiation therapy after surgery does not improve overall survival or recurrence-free survival of women with the disease. Women who were treated with surgery alone had a 5 year survival rate of 89% and a 5 year disease free survival rate of 78%. Additional research is needed to find better treatments for endometrial cancer patients.. Dr Heather-Jane Au presented research that showed that ...

By Deavers, Michael T Although most diagnoses in gynecologic pathology are established through the examination of routine hematoxylin eosin-stained slides, immunohistochemical studies can be of assistance in some cases. The following case studies are used to illustrate the value of some relatively new markers in the diagnosis of gynecologic neoplasms and to highlight potential diagnostic pitfalls. (Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2008;132:175-180) CASE 1 Case History The patient is a 59-year-old woman, nonsmoker, who presented 11 months prior with postmenopausal spotting. Following an en- dometrial biopsy, she underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO) and lymph node dissection for endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma, grade 2. Histologic examination showed that the tumor invaded 9 mm into an 18-mm-thick myometrium and involved the cervical stroma (Figure 1). There was lymphvascular involvement, but the pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes were negative for ...
With the use of Cox proportional hazards regression, we showed no significant association between endometrial cancer risk and consumption of either tea (multivariate adjusted RR per cup daily: 1.00; 95% CI: 0.98, 1.02) or coffee (RR per cup daily: 0.98; 95% CI: 0.96, 1.01). Our meta-analyses showed no significant association between endometrial cancer risk and tea consumption and a weak association for coffee consumption in prospective studies, but there may have been selective publication of only part of the evidence.. CONCLUSIONS ...
Diabetes and Hypertension - The association with obesity accounts for much of the risk but studies have found independent effects as well.. Family History - A history of colon, endometrial or ovarian cancer may point to Lynch Syndrome which places women at particularly high risk.. Most women with endometrial cancer are diagnosed at an early stage and have a very good prognosis. The risk factors for more aggressive variants are less clear but they may occur more commonly in black women. Uterine sarcomas occur in the uterine muscle or structural elements rather than the lining of the uterus and though very rare, are associated with a history of pelvic radiation and tamoxifen use.Family History - A history of colon, endometrial or ovarian cancer may point to Lynch Syndrome which places women at particularly high risk.. ...

By Nayak, Tapan K Hathaway, Helen J; Ramesh, Chinnasamy; Arterburn, Jeffrey B; Dai, Donghai; Sklar, Larry A; Norenberg, Jeffrey P; Prossnitz, Eric R Breast and endometrial cancers are the most common invasive malignancies in women, with more than 217,000 new diagnoses per year in the United States. These cancers are often classified into 2 subtypes based on the expression of the classical estrogen receptor. In this study, we describe a new structural class of neutraf tridentate ^sup 99m^Tc(I)-estradiol-pyridin-2-yl hydrazine derivatives for potential use in breast and endometrial cancer imaging. Methods: The ^sup 99m^Tc(I)-estradiol-pyridin-2-yl hydrazine derivative was synthesized via the Sonogashira cross- coupling reaction and radiolabeled via the tricarbonyl approach. Radiochemical purity was assessed by high-performance liquid chromatography. Cell-binding studies were performed with human breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells. The in vivo biodistribution of the ^sup 99m^Tc(I) derivative was ...

Your Cancer Status Prior to planning your treatment regimen, your doctor needs to know the grade of the tumor and the extent (stage) of the disease. A pathologist assigns the grade (1 to 3) to describe how abnormal the cancer cells look under a microscope. Grade 1 cancer cells are not as likely to grow and spread as Grade 3 cells. The stage is based on whether the tumor has invaded nearby tissues, whether the cancer has spread, and if so, to what parts of the body. Your doctor may rely on the following to determine whether the cancer has spread:
Genomic instability influences the transcriptome and proteome in endometrial cancer subtypes : In addition to clinical characteristics, DNA aneuploidy has been identified as a prognostic factor in epithelial malignancies in general and in endometrial cancers in particular. We mapped ploidy-associated chromosomal aberrations and identified corresponding gene and protein expression changes in endometrial cancers of different prognostic subgroups.
