Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze clinical outcomes from cervical cancer and stratify patients into risk groups for prognostic factors for early-stage disease. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed patients with stage IB or IIA cervical cancer treated with adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) or concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) following primary surgery at Samsung Medical Center from 2001 to 2011. Adjuvant RT was added for patients with intermediate-risk factors, and adjuvant CCRT was performed on high-risk patients after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: To identify predictors of ovarian conservation at hysterectomy and to examine the association of ovarian conservation and survival of young women with early-stage cervical cancer. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program to identify hysterectomy-based surgically treated patients with stage I cervical cancer diagnosed between 1983 and 2012 (N=16,511). Multivariable models were used to identify independent factors associated with ovarian conservation...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) has been shown to be a feasible technique for the treatment of esophageal cancer; however, its postoperative morbidity remains high. This retrospective study aimed to evaluate the effect of postoperative complications on long-term outcomes in patients who have undergone MIE for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS: This retrospective study enrolled patients who had undergone MIE for ESCC between September 2009 and November 2014; all procedures were performed by a single surgical team...

PURPOSE: To define prognostic factors associated with improved survival and local control (LC) for gynecologic cancer recurrences limited to the pelvis and para-aortic (PA) region using stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). METHODS: Between 2/2008 and 7/2014, 30 women (35 targets) with pelvic or PA recurrence of endometrioid (n = 12), cervical (n = 11), ovarian (n = 3), uterine-serous (n = 2), or carcinosarcoma (n = 2) cancer were treated with SBRT...

TIMELESS is a highly conserved protein required for the maintenance of normal mammalian circadian oscillations and for controlling cellular metabolism and proliferation. Recently, TIMELESS was implicated in the tumorigenesis of certain cancers. However, little is known on TIMELESS protein expression and its potential as a prognostic factor in cervical cancer. Here, we investigate TIMELESS expression pattern and its clinicopathological significance in early-stage cervical carcinoma. TIMELESS mRNA and protein expression was evaluated by real-time PCR and western blot analysis in cervical cancer cell lines, a normal cervical cell line, as well as in six pairs of surgically removed cervical cancer and adjacent normal cervical tissues...

This study investigated whether pretreatment neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and prognostic nutritional index (PNI) are prognostic factors in patients with cervical cancer who undergo concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) and radiotherapy (RT). A total of 131 patients who underwent CCRT and RT for cervical cancer were retrospectively investigated and the correlations of NLR, PLR and PNI with clinical parameters and prognosis were assessed in CCRT and RT. The CCRT and RT groups had a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 41...

Accumulating evidence suggests that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are playing critical roles in tumorgenesis. LncRNA ANRIL has been reported to promote tumor progression in types of cancers. However, the expression and function of ANRIL in cervical cancer are still largely unclear. We measured the expression of ANRIL in cervical cancer tissues and cell lines and analyzed its association with clinicopathological features and prognosis. Loss-of-function experiments were used to identify the biological function of ANRIL...

Endometrial cancer (EC) is one of the most common gynecological cancer worldwide. To date, no good markers are routinely used in clinical practice for prognosis and monitoring. Areas covered: During the last years, an increasing interest in literature has been growing on HE4 (Human epididimis 4). Therefore, we aimed to gather all the evidence reported in literature analysing the potential prognostic value of HE4, compared to the well know tumor's features (histological type and grade, stage of disease, depth of myometrial invasion, lymphovascular space involvement and cervical involvement)...

OBJECTIVE: Delayed neck metastasis is the most significant prognostic factor for early tongue cancer. The main strategies for controlling cervical lymph nodes in Japan are elective neck dissection or watchful waiting. Elective neck dissection offers significantly better survival, but adversely impacts patient quality of life; consequently, here we investigated how to identify high-risk patients warranting elective neck dissection. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 67 patients with T1N0 oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma who underwent primary treatment in our department from April 2001 to March 2015...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate any association between metformin use and oncological outcomes of cervical cancer in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). METHODS: We retrospectively identified 248 patients with cervical cancer with type 2 DM who received primary treatment between 2004 and 2015. The clinicopathological characteristics and oncological outcomes were collected and analyzed. The patients were then separated into metformin use (n = 118) or non-metformin use (n = 130) groups...

AIM: In the treatment of cervical cancer, the extent of lymphadenectomy is a matter of debate. The goal of the current study was to examine the question of whether the number of retrieved lymph nodes (RLN) can influence survival of patients with early stage cervical cancer. METHODS: The medical records of 180 FIGO stage IB-IIA cervical cancer patients treated with primary radical surgery were reviewed. Patients were divided into two groups: those with ≤ 40 RLN and those with > 40 RLN...

PURPOSE: To investigate the diagnostic performance of minimum apparent diffusion coefficient (mini-ADC) for predicting lymphovascular invasion (LVI) in invasive cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-six patients with pathologically confirmed invasive cervical cancer (CC) underwent conventional preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) on a 3.0T MRI system. Tumor ADC, mini-ADC and mini-ADC ratio (mini-ADC value / tumor ADC value) were obtained and compared between LVI-positive and LVI-negative invasive CC, and correlation between LVI status and Ki-67, p16, p63, and clinical prognostic factors were analyzed...

Aberrant activation of the canonical Wnt pathway plays a significant role in cervical cancer (CC). However, limited data show the correlation between the cancer clinicopathological characteristics and the key molecules such as β-catenin and Wnt inhibitory factor 1 (WIF1). In this study, β-catenin and WIF1 expression were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for 196 patients with CC, 39 with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and 41 with normal cervical epithelium (NCE). Significant overexpression of β-catenin was detected in CC (67...

Jumonji domain-containing protein 1A (JMJD1A) plays a key role in the development and progression of several cancers. Here, we showed that the expression of JMJD1A is increased in cervical cancer cells and tissues, and that suppression of JMJD1A inhibits proliferation, migration, and invasion of cervical cancer cells. JMJD1A induced transcription of c-Myc, which is essential for cervical cancer growth and progression. Clinical data showed that JMJD1A expression correlated with lymph node metastasis (P=0.031) and FIGO stage (P=0...

METHODS: The study group comprised 38 retrospectively analysed consecutive patients with LN metastasis in the head and neck (HN) region without known primary tumours (PTs). Statistical values of 3T-MRI and of FDG-PET/CT scans were evaluated...
