The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 21 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books. 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.
The optimal interval between surgery and adjuvant treatment has not yet been found in cervical cancer. And whether patients with different FIGO stage should choose different interval is unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether interval has a different effect on oncologic outcome for patients with different tumor stages.
This study aimed to assess the relationship between BRCA1 gene methylation, PD-L1 protein expression, and the clinicopathologic features of sporadic ovarian cancer (OC).
Response to Combination Chemotherapy With Paclitaxel/Ifosfamide/Platinum Versus Paclitaxel/Platinum for Patients With Metastatic, Recurrent, or Persistent Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix: A Retrospective Analysis.
Paclitaxel/ifosfamide/cisplatin triplet has shown a higher response rate than paclitaxel/cisplatin doublet, but the toxicity profile hindered the use of the triplet regimen. In this study, we adjusted the dosage of the triplet regimen and introduced carboplatin in cisplatin-intolerable patients. We tested the efficacy and toxicity of the modified triplet regimen in patients with recurrent or persistent cervical cancer.
Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers. In recent years, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) classifications were revised. We compared the major changes between the classifications and examined the effects on the therapy and prognosis of the ovarian, fallopian tubes, and peritoneum cancer in our series according to both classifications.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in hospitalized patients with malignancy. Nationwide Inpatient Sample database was analyzed to determine the trends in the rate of hospitalization and mortality from VTE in hospitalized ovarian cancer patients and assess its economic impact and resource utilization.
Undifferentiated endometrial carcinoma (UEC) represents a recently recognized and rare diagnosis that is commonly misclassified on histopathologic evaluation. These cancers account for less than 10% of carefully reviewed series of endometrial cancers from academic medical centers. We reviewed a single-institutional experience with the management of UEC focusing on clinicopathologic characteristics and treatment outcomes.
The aim of this study was to determine preoperative risk factors associated with unplanned reoperation within 30 days for patients undergoing major surgery for primary ovarian cancer using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database.
Cervical cancer is common in resource-poor settings with high prevalence of tuberculosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. There are no data regarding the sentinel lymph node (SLN) algorithm in these high-risk cancer populations. Our objectives were to establish the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the SLN algorithm in cervical cancer and to compare the detection rate of indocyanine green (ICG) versus blue dye...
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.
The purpose of this study is to identify incidence of and factors associated with severe late toxicity in women treated with radiation for cervical cancer.
Current guidelines do not recommend routine surveillance imaging as part of follow-up care for patients treated for locoregional endometrial carcinoma. This study seeks to determine the potential benefit of routine surveillance imaging by evaluating outcomes of patients whose recurrences were detected on routine surveillance compared to those whose recurrences were identified after presenting with symptoms.
Diagnosis of endometrial clear cell carcinomas is difficult owing to the low reproducibility of histological cell type in high-grade endometrial cancers. Recently, immunoreactivity for napsin A and glypican 3 has been reported in clear cell cancers. We sought to evaluate the use of napsin A and glypican 3 staining to distinguish clear cell carcinoma from other high-grade endometrial cancers.
This study aimed to evaluate oncologic outcomes of women with stage IB1 cervical cancer treated with uterine-preserving surgery (UPS) (defined as conization or trachelectomy) versus non-UPS (defined as hysterectomy of any type).
Establishing an accurate histologic diagnosis is essential for determining the appropriate course of therapy for ovarian cancer. This study sought to investigate and describe nonovarian cancer pathologies discovered during the systematic laparoscopic workup of presumed advanced ovarian cancer.
The aim of this study was to evaluate if the lymph node count from inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy impacted the risk of isolated groin recurrence in patients with node-negative squamous cell vulvar cancer.
The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of new primary malignancies after adult-type granulosa cell tumor (AGCT) and the incidence of AGCT after breast and uterine cancer using nationwide population-based registry data.
Postoperative complications and adjuvant chemotherapy delay (ACD) are the most damaging outcomes after surgical treatment of advanced ovarian cancer. Establishing predictive factors should prevent their occurrence.
Human epididymis factor-4 (HE4) has been studied in the field of ovarian cancer with promising results during the last decade. The purpose of the present meta-analysis is to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of HE4, in terms of sensitivity and specificity, as a minimally invasive method to predict optimal debulking in women that experience ovarian cancer.
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has been successfully used to treat oligometastases of several primary tumors, but few experiences have been described in patients with gynecological oligometastatic cancer, particularly in ovarian neoplasm. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of this new radiotherapy modality in a series of oligometastatic ovarian cancer patients.
The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) and cancer antigen 125 (CA125), and risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm (ROMA) in identifying type I and type II epithelial ovarian cancers (EOCs).
Uterine sarcomas (USs) are characterized by poor response to systemic chemotherapy and high recurrence rates. This study evaluates whether the use of cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) confers survival benefit in comparison with conventional treatment modalities in patients with recurrent US.
Uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC) is a highly aggressive subtype of endometrial carcinoma. Histopathologically, it resembles the pattern of serous papillary carcinoma of the ovary. Cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) is the most widely used biomarker in epithelial ovarian carcinoma. Its use in UPSC evaluation has yet to be determined. The purpose of this study was to investigate the significance of preoperative serum CA-125 as a prognostic factor in patients with UPSC.
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.
