Summary of "CD44+/CD24+-Expressing Cervical Cancer Cells and Radioresistant Cervical Cancer Cells Exhibit Cancer Stem Cell Characteristics."

Radiation therapy is a mainstay in the treatment of cervical cancer. However, most advanced and metastatic cervical cancers are resistant to radiation therapy because of the presence of cancer stem cells (CSCs). To date, no specific markers were found for cervical CSCs.

Long noncoding RNA HOTAIR knockdown inhibits autophagy and epithelial-mesenchymal transition through the Wnt signaling pathway in radioresistant human cervical cancer HeLa cells.

Cervical cancer is one of the most common female malignancies around the world, and radiation resistance is a major obstacle to cancer therapy. Previously, overexpression of the long noncoding ribonuc...

RHCG suppresses cervical cancer progression through inhibiting migration and inducing apoptosis regulated by TGF-β1.

Cervical cancer is the second commonest cancer among women in the worldwide, and the majority cause of death in various countries, highlighting the importance of investigating new therapeutic targets....

microRNA-141-3p fosters the growth, invasion, and tumorigenesis of cervical cancer cells by targeting FOXA2.

microRNA (miR)-141-3p has context-dependent effects on tumor progression. In this study, we attempted to explore the expression and function of miR-141-3p in cervical cancer. We found that miR-141-3p ...

Targeting mitochondrial respiration as a therapeutic strategy for cervical cancer.

Targeting mitochondrial respiration has been documented as an effective therapeutic strategy in cancer. However, the impact of mitochondrial respiration inhibition on cervical cancer cells are not wel...

Value of Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging Combined with miR-18a Level in Predicting Radiosensitivity of Cervical Cancer.

BACKGROUND Radioresistance during radiotherapy of cervical cancer often leads to treatment failure; therefore, there is an urgent need to develop effective predictive indicators of radiosensitivity fo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

Abnormal development of immature squamous EPITHELIAL CELLS of the UTERINE CERVIX, a term used to describe premalignant cytological changes in the cervical EPITHELIUM. These atypical cells do not penetrate the epithelial BASEMENT MEMBRANE.

The first cervical vertebra.
