OBJECTIVE: Prostate cancer is a genomically complex disease and recently emerging scientific evidence is adding new pieces of information into existing pool of knowledge of oncology. Prostate cancer cells tactfully rewire signaling cascades in presence or absence of androgen. We do not have finer proteome and genome based patient related information of our cancer patients. METHODOLOGY: In the present laboratory research, we studied 3' UTR C/T and A/G polymorphism in NBS1 gene in 100 prostate cancer patients and 100 healthy individuals without any previous clinical history, using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis...

Primary tumors of round ligament are rare, and when found are typically leiomyomas. Endometrioma, and mesothelial cysts are the benign lesions recognized as involving the round ligament. We report a case of lipoma of the round ligament in a 48-year-old premenopausal woman. Round ligament lipoma on the intraperitoneal portion (abdominal site) is very rare and it should be kept in the differential diagnosis of ovarian and abdominal masses.

Lymphangiomas are rare benign tumors which are generally seen in pediatric population and the etiopathogenesis has not yet been understood. They occasionally occur in the head and neck or axillary region with only 5% of them being located in the abdominal or mediastinal cavity. These tumors may be asymptomatic or may cause acute abdominal symptoms due to the location and extention. In the English literature, only 4 cases of lymphangioma were reported to have occurred in the pregnancy period. Herein, we report a case of cystic lymphangioma of the lesser omentum detected incidentally on the ultrasonogram of a 21 year-old, 26-week pregnant woman...

One challenging feature of head and neck pathology is that a dizzying array of spindle cell lesions occurs here which ranges all the way from reactive, very aggressive forms to malignant lesions. Leiomyosarcoma is one such malignant tumour of mesenchymal origin exhibiting smooth muscle differentiation; presenting generally nonspecific signs and symptoms. Here we present a case of leiomyosarcoma in a 21 year old female patient associated with single reddish pink swelling present in the posterior right maxillary tuberosity region with moderate facial asymmetry...

The renin-angiotensin system, through its type 1 and type 2 angiotensin receptors (AT1R and AT2R, respectively) may have a role in prostate cancer. The objective of this pilot study was to explore that potential role by determining whether the AT1R blocker, losartan, would reduce the growth of LAPC-4 prostate cancer xenografts in nude mice. We also evaluated the tumor growth effects of using angiotensin II to activate both AT1R and AT2R simultaneously. Our data showed that losartan decreased tumor volumes by 56% versus control...
