C. elegans cell divisions that produce an apoptotic daughter cell exhibit Daughter Cell Size Asymmetry (DCSA), producing a larger surviving daughter cell and a smaller daughter cell fated to die. Genetic screens for mutants with defects in apoptosis identified several genes that are also required for the ability of these divisions to produce daughter cells that differ in size. One of these genes, ham-1, encodes a putative transcription factor that regulates a subset of the asymmetric cell divisions that pro...
Cervical cancer is the leading and most common female cancer among women in Ghana. Although there are screening methods to detect premalignant lesions for treatment, screening coverage in Ghana is 2.8% and late presentation of cases complicates treatment efforts. This study examined the sociodemographic, clinical and histological characteristics associated with late presentation of cervical cancer cases attending Gynecological Oncology care at Catholic Hospital, Battor.
Zambia has made substantial investments in health systems capacity, yet it remains unclear whether improved service quality improves outcomes. We investigated the association between health system capacity and use of prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) services in Zambia.
Sub-Saharan Africa concentrates the largest burden of cervical cancer worldwide. The introduction of the HPV vaccination in this region is urgent and strategic to meet global health targets. This was a cross-sectional study conducted in Mozambique prior to the first round of the HPV vaccine demonstration programme. It targeted girls aged 10-19 years old identified from schools and households. Face-to-face structured interviews were conducted. A total of 1,147 adolescents were enrolled in three selected dist...
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II alleles have been previously associated with cervical cancer. However, these associations vary widely across racial and ethnic groups. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of HLA class II alleles on cervical cancer in a Korean population. HLA-DRB1, HLA-DQB1, and HLA-DQA1 alleles were analyzed in 457 cervical cancer patients and compared to those of 926 control subjects. The odds ratio (OR) of each allele between the patients and controls was calculated using the logistic...
Cervical cancer is the third most common cause of cancer in women. The 5-year survival rate in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas is about 50%, and this rate has not improved in the last several decades. These cancers are accessible to direct intervention. We examined the ability of a highly efficient non-viral vector, TransfeX, to deliver the suicide gene HSV-tk to cervical and oral cancer cells and induce cytotoxicity following the administration of the prodrug, ganciclovir.
We aimed to assess the quality of life (QOL) of the patients with cervical cancer after initial treatment, the factors affecting QOL and their clinical relevance. A total of 256 patients with cervical cancer who visited Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University from January 2017 to December 2017 were enrolled in this study. The European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Core-30 item (EORTC QLQ-C30) and cervical cancer module (EORTC QLQ-CX24) was used to assess the Q...
Pap smear and high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) DNA testing are the most widely applied methods for cervical cancer screening, but both methods are limited by their low specificity and lack of association with the patients' prognoses. The aim of the study was to compare the clinical and prognostic significance of HPV E6/E7 mRNA as an early biomarker with cytology and HPV DNA detection in cervical cancer screening.
The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been reported to possess significant prognostic value in multiple types of cancer. However, its prognostic value in patients with cervical remains controversial. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the prognostic value of pretreatment PLR in cervical cancer.
Demethoxycurcumin (DMC), one of the curcuminoids present in turmeric, has been shown to induce cell death in many human cancer cell lines, however, there has not been any investigation on whether DMC inhibits metastatic activity in human cervical cancer cells in vitro. In the present study, DMC at 2.5-15 μM decreased cell number, thus, we used IC (7.5 μM) for further investigation of its anti-metastatic activity in human cervical cancer HeLa cells.
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. Rh family, C glycoprotein (RHCG) belongs to the Rhesus (Rh) family and was first identified as Rh blood group antigens. It has been confirmed to function in cancer progression, including prostate cancer and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. However, its role in cervical cancer has never been explored. The pr...
To demonstrate whether radiotherapy has an effect on the survival of patients with stage IVb (M1) cervical cancer, as it has not been adequately clarified.
To explore the function of fibulin-3 in cervical carcinoma malignant cell growth and metastasis, fibulin-3 expression in normal cervical tissue, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and cervical carcinoma were evaluated by immunohistochemistry. Quantitative real-time-polymerase chain reaction, western blotting, and immunocytochemistry were performed to assess the expression of fibulin-3 at mRNA and protein levels in different invasive clone sublines. Fibulin-3 shRNA and fibulin-3 cDNA were used to tran...
The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic significance of PET/CT findings in women with cervical cancer and describe the normalization of lymph node SUVmax (nSUVmax).
BACKGROUND Accumulating studies demonstrate that microRNAs play crucial roles in multiple processes of cancer progression. Lower levels of miR-183 have been observed in diverse types of tumors but the mechanism and precise function of miR-183-5p in cervical cancer have largely not been investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS The level of miR-183-5p in different cervical cancer cell lines and clinical tissues was detected qRT-PCR assays. Transwell and wound-healing migration assays were conducted to assess the fu...
High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the etiological agent of cervical, oral and oropharyngeal cancers. Another oncogenic virus, Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) can cause several human cancers arising in those immunocompromised patients. KSHV DNA has been detected in the oral cavity and the female genital tract, although its detection rate in cervical samples is relatively low. Therefore, it remains unclear about the role of KSHV co-infection in the development of HPV-related neopl...
The aim of this survey was to acquire an overview of the current management of cervical cancer with an emphasis on the early disease stages.
Our goal was to evaluate the infrastructure of programs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in major delivery units in the Atlanta, Georgia, metropolitan statistical area and to assess the knowledge, attitude, and practice of providers in these facilities around PMTCT.
Human papillomavirus (HPV)-based cervical cancer screening requires triage of HPV positive women to identify those at risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 (CIN2) or worse. We conducted a blinded case-control study within the HPV FOCAL randomized cervical cancer screening trial of women aged 25-65 to examine whether baseline methylation testing using the S5 classifier provided triage performance similar to an algorithm relying on cytology and HPV genotyping. Groups were randomly selected from 2...
Cervical cancer (CC) is a malignant solid tumor, which is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in women. Given that autophagy is an important factor promoting tumor progression, we aim to investigate the functional role of miR-338 in autophagy and proliferation of cervical cancer. In our study, expression of miR-338 was validated by quantitative RT-PCR in 30 paired cervical cancer tissues and normal tissues. We performed MTT, colony formation and cell cycle assay to explore the effect of miR-33...
Performing hysterectomy following chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for IB2/IIA2 cervical cancer is highly controversial. This study evaluated national practice patterns in utilization of post-CRT hysterectomy in the United States compared to CRT alone, as well as outcomes.
Cervical cancer (CC) is one of the most common gynecologic tumors in women worldwide, with poor prognosis and low survival rate. In this study, we identified SNAP23 as a potential tumor suppressor gene in CC.
The characteristics of cancer stem cells (CSCs) and the genes responsible for their maintenance are highly variable in different cancers. Here, we identify the coordination among miRNAs and EGF pathway genes which is critical for the maintenance of CSCs in cervical cancer. The transcript analysis of CSCs enriched from cervical cancer cell lines (CaSki and HeLa) revealed a significant upregulation of SOX2. Since EGF receptor is frequently over expressed in cervical cancer, we hypothesized that EGF pathway ma...
Eighty-five percent of the incidents and deaths from cervical cancer occur in low and middle income countries. In many of these countries, this is the most common cancer in women. The survivals of the women with gynecologic cancers are hampered by the paucity of prevention, screening, treatment facilities and gynecologic oncology providers. Increasing efforts dedicated to improving education and research in these countries have been provided by international organizations. We describe here the existing educ...
Human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven oropharyngeal cancer incidence in the United States has steadily increased in the past decades and has now become the most frequently diagnosed HPV-associated cancer type, surpassing cervical cancer. Variations in the HPV genome correlate with tumorigenic risk, and the distribution of genetic variants is extensively studied in cervical cancer, but very little is known about new mutations or the distribution of HPV types and variants in oropharyngeal cancer. Here we present ...
