Correlation analysis on the expression levels of microRNA-23a and microRNA-23b and the incidence and prognosis of ovarian cancer.

The present study aimed to investigate the expression levels of microRNA (miR)-23a and miR-23b in the tumor tissues of patients with ovarian cancer. The study also explored the correlation of miR-23a ...

Perirenal Adiposity is Associated With Lower Progression-Free Survival From Ovarian Cancer.

Abdominal obesity is linked with a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. However, the link between abdominal obesity and survival after diagnosis of ovarian cancer is unknown. The purpose of this ...

Amino acids (AAs) are biologically important nutrient compounds necessary for the survival of any cell. Of the 20 AAs, cancer cells depend on the uptake of several extracellular AAs for survival. Howe...

MicroRNA‑665 suppresses the growth and migration of ovarian cancer cells by targeting HOXA10.

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological cancer and its metastasis leads to a poor prognosis. The present study was designed to elucidate how microRNA (miR)‑665 regulates the proliferation an...

Molecular Mechanisms Leading to Chemoresistance in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer

Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological malignancy in developed countries and the fifth most common cause of cancer-related death in women. Poor prognosis is due to chal...

The Development of Human Immunologic Assays Specific to Folate Receptor Antigen

Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate of gynecologic malignancies and the overall 5-year survival rate of ovarian cancer is only 20-30%. Additionally, the incidence of ovarian canc...

The purpose of this study is to compare the progression-free survival of two treatment regimens for relapsed ovarian cancer.

WISER After Ovarian Cancer - Exercise Pilot Study

One in four deaths in the United States is due to cancer, and one in three women will develop cancer in her lifetime. Despite improvements in survival among other forms of cancer, ovarian ...

The Treatment Preferences of Women Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer

The primary objective of this study is to apply best-practice stated-preference methods to quantify the extent to which women with ovarian cancer accept the risks, side effects, and out-of...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A ubiquitously-expressed claudin subtype that acts as a general barrier-forming protein in TIGHT JUNCTIONS. Elevated expression of claudin-3 is found in a variety of tumor cell types, suggesting its role as a therapeutic target for specific ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS.

A claudin subtype that takes part in maintaining the barrier-forming property of TIGHT JUNCTIONS. Claudin-4 is found associated with CLAUDIN-8 in the KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT where it may play a role in paracellular chloride ion reabsorption.

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.

A claudin subtype that is associated with the formation of cation-selective channels and increased epithelial permeability. It is localized to the TIGHT JUNCTIONS of the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE and INTESTINAL EPITHELIUM.

An integral membrane protein that is localized to TIGHT JUNCTIONS, where it plays a role in controlling the paracellular permeability of polarized cells. Mutations in the gene for claudin-1 are associated with Neonatal Ichthyosis-Sclerosing Cholangitis (NISCH) Syndrome.
