Ovarian cancer is the most lethal malignancy of the women genital tract. Exploring novel factors involved in the development of ovarian cancer and characterizing the molecular mechanisms by which regulate the tumorigenesis of ovarian cancer are quite necessary. Here, we found that miR-19a was highly expressed in ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines. Overexpression of miR-19a promoted the viability of ovarian cancer cells, while down-regulation of miR-19a inhibited the growth of ovarian cancer cells. To fur...
Aspirin use is associated with reduced risk of several cancers. A pooled analysis of 12 case-control studies showed a 10% decrease in ovarian cancer risk with regular aspirin use, which was stronger for daily and low-dose users. To prospectively investigate associations of analgesic use with ovarian cancer, we analyzed data from 13 studies in the Ovarian Cancer Cohort Consortium (OC3).
Ovarian cancer is the most frequent cause of death resulting from malignant gynecological tumors. After surgical intervention, cisplatin (DDP) is a major chemotherapy drug for ovarian cancer, but the ovarian cancer cells tend to develop DDP resistance in the clinical setting. Tumor cells are sensitive to low-dose radiation (LDR). However, how the LDR therapy improves the effects of chemotherapy drugs on ovarian cancer is not well understood. This study aimed to explore this issue.
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) has been associated with ovarian cancer risk. To clarify the role of Chlamydia trachomatis and other infectious agents in the development of ovarian cancer, we evaluated the association of serologic markers with incident ovarian cancer using a staged approach in two independent populations.
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.
Ovarian cancer is one of the most common malignancies with a high rate of mortality in women. However, current therapies for ovarian cancer treatment are ineffective. Therefore, novel target identification is an urgent requisite. The present study aimed to investigate the role of microRNA-214 (miR-214) in ovarian cancer.
Survival of ovarian cancer patients is generally poor, partly because most of them are already at an advanced stage when diagnosed. The purpose of this study was to screen prognostic miRNAs for ovarian cancer, and to explore the underlying mechanisms.
Ovarian cancer is the most deadly gynecologic cancer, and the therapy is very difficult. Apatinib is a novel tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2. At present, there are few studies or case reports on apatinib treatment for patients with ovarian cancer.
Serum human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) and transthyretin (TTR) are new markers for ovarian cancer. We compared HE4 and TTR with the gold marker CA-125 for the diagnosis of ovarian cancer patients.
Ovarian cancer is the leading malignancy of the female reproductive system and is associated with inconspicuous early invasion and metastasis. We have previously reported that the oncogene OTUB1 plays a crucial role in ovarian cancer progression, but the role of its isoform, the non-coding RNA OTUB1-isoform2, in ovarian cancer is still elusive. Here, we reported that OTUB1-isoform2 expression in ovarian cancer tissues was significantly higher than that in the paired paratumorous tissues (P
Although family history of testicular cancer is well-established as a risk factor for testicular cancer, it is unknown whether family history of ovarian cancer is associated with risk of testicular cancer.
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 and migration of ovarian tumor cells. Reverse transcription‑polymerase chain reaction (RT‑PCR) demonstrated that miR‑665 expression was decreased in ovarian cancer tissues. Increased expression of miR‑665 suppressed the growth and migration of ovarian cancer cells, whereas the downregulated expression of ...
Ascites is a common finding in patients with ovarian cancer. Paracentesis is a relatively simple, safe, and effective procedure for draining fluid from the peritoneum, but valid quality-of-life tools are needed to determine its subjective value for alleviating symptoms and improving patient quality of life. The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate the performance of a novel Ascites Symptom Mini-Scale (ASmS) and compare it with a previously available questionnaire.
Patients with ovarian cancer often report elevated anxiety at diagnosis that decreases posttreatment. However, a minority of patients experience sustained anxiety. Few studies have examined risk factors for persistent anxiety or its physiologic sequelae in ovarian cancer. Therefore, the authors investigated associations between prior life events, anxiety, inflammation (plasma levels of interleukin-6), and diurnal cortisol profiles in patients with ovarian cancer during the first year postdiagnosis.
Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer in women and the eighth most common cause of cancer death in the world with an overall 5-year survival rate of
Preclinical studies suggest that non-aspirin non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may improve survival of ovarian cancer. We examined the association between non-aspirin NSAID use and ovarian cancer mortality.
Palmar fasciitis and polyarthritis (PFPA) is an uncommon disorder clinically characterized by rapidly developing bilateral arthritis of the hands and fasciitis of the palms. This cancer-associated syndrome, primarily linked to ovarian cancer, has also been associated with multiple different malignancies. PFPA symptoms usually precede the detection of ovarian cancer. In all patients from case series and single case reports described, ovarian cancer is already present at an advanced stage. Therefore, the auth...
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) has been detected in various types of tumors. We studied the prevalence of HCMV in ovarian cancer and its relation to clinical outcome. Paraffin-embedded tissues obtained prospectively from 45 patients with ovarian cancer and 30 patients with benign ovarian cystadenoma were analyzed for expression of HCMV immediate-early protein (IE) and HCMV tegument protein (pp65) by immunohistochemistry. Plasma was analyzed for HCMV serology. HCMV-IgG levels were higher in patients with ovari...
Multiple Drug Resistance (MDR) of ovarian cancer is a severe trouble for clinical treatment and always attributes to a bad prognosis. AT-rich interaction domain 1 A (ARID1A) has been recognized as a bona fide tumor suppressor gene in recent years, with the highest mutation rate in ovarian cancer. Previous study illustrated that ARID1A expression is negatively correlated with chemoresistance of ovarian cancer cases. However, the specific role of ARID1A in chemoresistance of ovarian cancer remains elusive. ...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of naturally occurring, small, non-coding RNAs that target protein-coding mRNAs at the post-transcriptional level and participate in various biological processes. Our previous studies suggested that miR-143-3p functions as a tumor suppressor and has a role in the progression of ovarian cancer, in part through the regulation of the tumor promoter. In this study, we found that the mRNA expression level of miR-143-3p was significantly decreased in ovarian cancer tissues, in compa...
Long non-coding RNA (LncRNA) MALAT1 is an important regulatory molecule in many diseases, especially in ovarian cancer. We aimed at exploring the function of MALAT1 in ovarian cancer and at clarifying its mechanisms.
A meta-analysis published in 2015 revealed a marginally increased risk of endometrial and ovarian cancers among non-smoking women with dietary acrylamide intake. However, only a few studies were included, and they were limited to Western countries. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between dietary acrylamide intake and endometrial or ovarian cancer risk in the Japan Public Health Center-based Prospective Study (JPHC Study). In this prospective cohort study, 47,185 participants aged 45...
Ovarian cancer is the most common deadly cancer of gynecologic origin. Patients often are diagnosed at advanced stage with peritoneal metastasis. There are many rare histologies of ovarian cancer; some have outcomes worse than serous ovarian cancer. Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) can be considered for patients with recurrence. This study was designed to assess the impact of CRS and HIPEC on survival of patient with peritoneal metastasis from rare ovarian ma...
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a class of noncoding RNA, involved in regulation of diverse physiological and pathological processes. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among all gynecological malignancies in the world and its underlying mechanism is still unclear. lncRNAs exhibit multiple biological functions in various stages of ovarian cancer development. We will discuss and summarize the new and important lncRNAs and their involvement in disease, which might represent promising therapeutic t...
Inhibition of isoprenylcysteine carboxylmethyltransferase (Icmt), which catalyzes the final step of oncoproteins' prenylation, targets growth and survival of various cancers. In this work, we systematically studied the expression, functions and molecular signaling of Icmt in ovarian cancer. We show that the upregulation of Icmt expression is a common feature in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer regardless of age and disease stage. In line with the observations in ovarian cancer patients, a panel of ep...
