Photinos Panas (1832-1903) was one of the world's most important ophthalmologists in the second half of the 19th century. In his leading work entitled, Traité des maladies des yeux (Treatise of ophthalmic diseases), he made an in depth analysis of the various types of ocular cancer. His ideas on the subject were important for their tutorial character, their connection to the clinical work and very helpful for the everyday clinical practice of physicians of that time.

PURPOSE: Pterygium is a distinct clinicopathological entity characterized by degenerated and neoplastic-like features. Concerning its rise on normal conjunctiva epithelia, the role of specific gene deregulations including apoptotic/anti-apoptotic factors and significant suppressor genes in signaling transduction pathways is under investigation. In the current study, we co-analyzed p53, survivin and PTEN proteins in pterygia and normal conjunctiva. METHODS: Using a liquid-based cytology assay, 50 cell specimens were obtained by a smooth scraping on conjunctiva epithelia and fixed accordingly...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to analyze the clinical efficacy and complications of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and laparoscopic resection of stromal tumors, and to explore the clinical value and complications of stromal tumors treated with ESD. METHODS: 146 patients with gastric stromal tumors (GSTs) treated in our hospital from January 2012 to January 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into the ESD group and the laparoscopic surgery group (LS)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of microRNA-210 (miRNA- 210) on the biological behaviors (proliferation and invasion) of EC109 cells of highly metastatic human esophageal cancer (EC). METHODS: The EC109 genomic DNA of human EC was used as a template to amplify the precursor sequence of miRNA-210 by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The precursor sequence of miRNA-210 was sub-cloned into the eukaryotic expression vector pcDNA3.1(-) via double digestion by BamH I and Hind III restriction enzymes...

PURPOSE: Glioblastoma is a rapidly evolving lethal disease mainly due to its highly chemo- and radioresistant glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs). Herein, we tested if chitosan-capped gold nanoparticles (Chit-GNPs) may overcome the limitations of drug concentrations by increased cell internalization in GSCs and if such GNPs could enhance the response to irradiation. METHODS: Chitosan was used for Chit-GNP synthesis as a reducing and stabilizing agent. Chit-GNPs were characterized by spectroscopy, dark field, transmission electron microscopy and zeta potential measurements...

PURPOSE: Galangin is an important flavonoid that has been reported to be of immense pharmacological importance. It has been shown to have a number of bioactivities which range from anticancer to antimicrobial. In this study the effects of Galangin were studied on the proliferation of the A498 kidney cancer cells. METHODS: The antiproliferative effects were tested by MTT assay. Apoptosis was checked by subjecting the A498 cell to DAPI and annexin V/PI double staining...

PURPOSE: Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) accounts for 70-80% of renal cell carcinomas. Various microRNAs (miRs) have been reported to affect the tumorigenesis of ccRCC. However, the role of miR-384 in ccRCC is still unknown. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the function of miR-384 in ccRCC. METHODS: qRT-PCR or Western blot were employed to examine the expressions of miR-384 and CDK6 in ccRCC tissues or cell lines. MTT and transwell assays were applied to measure cell proliferation and motility...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of human enhancer of filamentation 1 (HEF1) gene on the proliferation, invasion and metastasis of bladder cancer cells. METHODS: Three human bladder cancer cell lines (T24, EJ and BIU-87) were selected to extract total RNA at logarithmic growth phase. The relative expression level of HEF1 in these cell lines was detected by semi-quantitative reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR), and the cell lines with relatively high expression and relatively low expression level of HEF1 cells were identified...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of long-chain non-coding RNA (lncRNA) SNHG7 in bladder cancer tissues and cell lines, and to explore its impact on bladder cancer cell proliferation, apoptosis and invasion processes. METHODS: Bladder cancer tissues and near-cancer tissues were collected. The expression of lncRNA-SNHG7 in tissues and cell lines was detected by real-time PCR (RT-PCR). The expression of lncRNA-SNHG7 was downregulated by RNA interference (siRNA) as detected by RT-PCR that was used to detect the interference efficiency...

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlations of p53 expression with transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound findings of cervical cancer after radiotherapy (RT). METHODS: A total of 78 patients with cervical cancer (stage II and III) treated in the Oncology Department of our hospital from March 2011 to September 2017 were enrolled, and another 10 normal cervical tissue specimens were taken from the Pathology Department as controls. RT was performed to the 78 enrolled patients...

PURPOSE: To investigate the role and significance of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in advanced ovarian cancer. METHODS: 128 patients clinically diagnosed with stage IIC-IV advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) were randomized into neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) combined with interval cytoreductive surgery (ICS) group (n=66) and primary cytoreductive surgery (PCS) group (n=62). Chemotherapy in the PCS group was administered after cytoreductive surgery. RESULTS: Age, body mass index, clinical symptoms, clinical staging, histopathological grading and histopathological type had no differences between PCS and ICS groups (p>0...

PURPOSE: Cervical cancer remains the most gruesome health problem in women worldwide as it ranks third in incidence. Despite recent developments in the treatment options of cervical cancer, the survival of patients not fit for surgical treatment rather remains poor. The main purpose of the current research was to determine the anticancer effect of farnesol in HeLa human cervical cancer cells together with studying its impact on apoptosis induction, mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) and PI3K/Akt signalling cascade...
