BioPortfolio aims to publish relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with users selected topics.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Lymphoma is among the five most frequent malignancies during pregnancy while anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) is rare, accounting only for 2-3 % of all adult-onset non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
This study aimed at evaluating the pregnancy outcomes of IVF triplets which are spontaneously or electively reduced to twins and to compare them with non-reduced triplets and twins.
Due to very unspecific symptoms ovarian cancer often is diagnosed only at a late stage of the disease. Thus, morbidity and mortality of the patients are high. Even the established tumor marker CA12-5 shows only low specificity, rising the need for alternative biomarkers capable of detecting early stages of ovarian cancer. We analyzed the expression of the tumor suppressor candidate gene LDOC1 (leucine zipper downregulated in cancer 1) as a potential early biomarker in ovarian cancer cell lines.
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a strong risk factor for the development of diabetes. We assessed the impact of a 1-year intensive follow-up demonstration program, using direct nurse and outreach worker case management, aimed at increasing compliance with postpartum oral glucose tolerance testing (OGTT).
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is frequent in adolescents and younger women. Diagnosis is usually based on the clinical findings, and the threshold for empiric antibiotic therapy should be low. However, at least in cases of resistance toward therapy or deterioration of symptoms, laparoscopic evaluation can be helpful.
To clarify whether maternal anemia could reduce placental volume in the early gestation.
To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of serum mesothelin levels in patients with ovarian masses in comparison to serum cancer antigen (CA) 125 levels.
The aim of this retrospective case-control study was to assess clinical factors that can predict the occurrence of post-partum urinary retention (PPUR) and evaluate their influence as independent risk factors.
This study aimed at determining if tumor-free distance (TFD) from outermost layer of cervix predicts surgicopathologic factors and outcome in surgically treated cervical cancer patients.
Radical resection of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), including bladder and bowel resection, provides relief from pain in symptomatic patients. The laparoscopic approach to treatment is well established for bowel resection but normally requires additional abdominal incisions for specimen retrieval. Here we describe our technique of laparoscopically assisted rectal resection and transvaginal specimen retrieval (LARRT) and provide follow-up information on pain scores and complications.
To study the consistency of hysteroscopy findings and histological chronic endometritis (CE) in recurrent implantation failure (RIF) cases, and to compare their values in indicating antibiotic treatment.
Prophylactic mastectomy with immediate reconstruction combined with simultaneous laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy via a transmammary route: a novel surgical approach to female BRCA-mutation carriers.
Breast reconstruction with salpingo-oophorectomy can easily be performed in patients with genetic mutations increasing the risk for mammary and ovarian carcinoma. However, many patients are skeptical about having several surgeries, as they may result in additional anesthesiological risks as well as multiple visible scars. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of prophylactic mastectomy and breast reconstruction combined with simultaneous transmammary salpingo-oophorectomy for...
To compare women undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy with adenomyosis and women with leiomyomas.
Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that death of microvascular endothelial cells plays a decisive role in the tumor response against radiotherapy. Nevertheless, radiation-induced gene alterations on cancer-associated endothelial cells of human endometrial carcinoma remain poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the gene expression changes after X-ray radiation in human endometrial carcinoma vascular endothelial cells and to provide new targets for combined treatment of radiation an...
Tocolysis is an important treatment in the improvement of outcome in preterm labor and preterm birth, provided that its use follows clear evidence-based recommendations. In this expert opinion, the most recent evidence about efficacy and side effects of different tocolytics is being reviewed and evidence-based recommendation about diagnosis and treatment of preterm labor is given. Further aspects such as progesterone administration or antibiotic treatment for the prevention of preterm birth are included. Ou...
To explore the potential and diagnostic performance of soluble mesothelin-related peptide (SMRP) as a tumor marker for epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC).
Robotic single-port hysterectomy is a rather new technique.
Primary malignant melanoma of the urethra is a rare tumour that most commonly affects the meatus and distal urethra. General prognosis seems to be poor. To date, there have been no systematic reviews on this topic. Therefore, we aimed to gain more insight into this rare type of tumour.
To compare loop excisions of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or worse (CIN 2+) under video exoscopy, or colposcopic guidance, with respect to safety and effectiveness.
Success rates of any artificial reproduction techniques depend on a correct protocol for ovarian stimulation. This can be decided only by proper assessment of ovarian reserve before commencing ovarian stimulation. This study has been conducted to investigate the role of hormonal and functional biomarkers in the prediction of ovarian response.
Vaginal-assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (VALRH) versus laparoscopic-assisted radical vaginal hysterectomy (LARVH) in the treatment of cervical cancer: surgical results and oncologic outcome.
The aim of this study was to compare the morbidity and survival rates of patients with early-stage cervical cancer treated by vaginal-assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (VALRH) with pair-matched laparoscopic-assisted vaginal radical hysterectomy (LARVH) controls.
Natural cycle (NC) IVF/ICSI has proven to be an alternative to conventional IVF/ICSI cycles.
