Background: Cervical cancer represents the second leading cause of malignant neoplasm mortality in women globally. Cervical cytology is the most important screening study. It is therefore of interest to know the prevalence of cytological alterations in the Mexican population. In this study the objective was to calculate the prevalence of intraepithelial lesion in cervical screening cytology. Methods: An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was developed; the sample was 379 patients from 21 to 64 years of age; we included patients who underwent cervical screening cytology registered in the Detección Oportuna de Cáncer Cervicouterino (DOC-CACU) program database...

The incidence of cervical adenocarcinoma, both absolute and relative to squamous cell carcinoma, is increasing. Most cervical adenocarcinomas are human papillomavirus associated, although non-human papillomavirus-associated neoplasms exist; the latter include gastric-type adenocarcinoma (GAS) and clear cell carcinoma (CCC). Histologically, these 2 tumors may superficially resemble one other and although morphologic evaluation usually permits a correct diagnosis, immunohistochemistry may be required to resolve diagnostic uncertainty, especially in a small biopsy specimen...

We recently reported that TPD7 suppressed tumor cell proliferation, and inhibited invasion, through the suppression of C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4). In the present study, we investigated the anticancer effect of TPD7 on apoptosis and invasion of cervical cancer HeLa cells. Cell cycle analysis revealed that TPD7 decreased cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)1 and cyclin D1 expression, and increased cyclin A expression, following S phase blockade. TPD7 induced chromatin condensation and significantly elevated the number of apoptotic cells, suggesting that its inhibitory effect on HeLa cells was due to the induction of cell cycle blockade and apoptosis...

Sipi soup (SPS), the aqueous extract derived from the root bark of Sophora japonical L, Salix babylonica L., Morus alba L., as well as Amygdalus davidiana (Carr.) C. de Vos, is a traditional Chinese medicine frequently used to prevent and treat infection and inflammation. However, the role of SPS in cancer‑associated fibroblasts (CAFs) require further investigation. In the present study, the effects of SPS on fibroblast inactivation and the underlying mechanism were investigated. Reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to analyze the mRNA expression levels of fibroblast activation protein (FAP), interleukin (IL)‑6, α‑smooth muscle actin (α‑SMA) and programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4)...

Metastasis of non-gynaecological tumours to the cervix is a rare event, and metastasis from breast cancer is even rarer, with only a limited number of such cases reported in the literature to date. We herein report the case of an 86-year-old female patient who had undergone mastectomy and axillary lymphadenectomy for invasive ductal cell breast carcinoma 2 years prior, followed by adjuvant hormonal therapy with letrozole. During hospitalization for anemia associated with an inflammatory syndrome and abdominal pain with menorrhagia, an abdominal ultrasound examination revealed a suspicious uterine mass with irregular contours and abnormal vascularization with associated increase of the blood level of cancer antigen 15-3 to 34 kU/l...

The aim of the study was to investigate whether the tumor free distance (TFD), which is the distance in millimeters between the deepest point of invasion and the serosal surface, and absolute depth of invasion (DMI), the distance in millimeters between the endomyometrial junction and the deepest point of myometrial invasion, are useful in surgical staging and in predicting prognosis. The present study retrospectively analyzed 62 cases of endometrial carcinoma with complete surgical staging, carried out over a 4 and half-year period (January 2003 to June 2007)...

Ellagic acid has been reported to possess various activities, including anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, antiviral and anticancer abilities. However, the effect and underlying molecular mechanism of ellagic acid on cervical carcinoma remain unclear. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the effects of ellagic acid on human cervical carcinoma cells and the molecular mechanism involved. The present study assessed the survival of HeLa cells cultured in vitro using an MTT assay. Apoptosis rate and cell cycle of HaLa cells were measured using an Annexin V-Fluorescein isothiocyanate/propidium iodide Apoptosis Detection and Cell Cycle Analysis kits, respectively, following treatment with varying concentrations of ellagic acid...

Infection with high-risk human papillomaviruses (HR-HPVs, including HPV-16, HPV-18, HPV-31) plays a central aetiologic role in the development of cervical carcinoma. The transforming properties of HR-HPVs mainly reside in viral oncoproteins E6 and E7. E6 protein degrades the tumour suppressor p53 and abrogates cell cycle checkpoints. Cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) is an oncoprotein that is involved in the carcinogenesis of many human malignancies. Our previous data showed that CIP2A was overexpressed in cervical cancer...

An in vitro synthesized random ssDNA library was subjected to 12 rounds of selection against anti-screening cells and sieving cells by SELEX. Normal and inflammatory cervical exfoliation cells were selected as anti-screening cells, and the cervical exfoliation cells of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (CIN1), high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (CIN2, CIN3) and cervical carcinoma were selected as sieving cells during the screening process. Then, the highly specific aptamer CIN-Ap4 was established by the analysis of the specificity, affinity and cell immunofluorescence, which can be used as biomarker for Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia...

A 65-year-old Caucasian man was admitted to our hospital due to incidental finding of plasma ionised calcium=1.83 mmol/L. During the previous months, he had felt more tired and had experienced an unintended weight loss of 6-8 kg. A CT scan revealed an inhomogeneous thyroid gland and enlarged lymph nodes along the cervical vessels and in the mediastinum. The patient underwent total thyroidectomy and, at the same time, two lymph nodes were removed. Histological examination of the thyroid gland revealed papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), T1aN0M0, and histological examination of the lymph nodes showed non-caseating granulomatous inflammation...
