This study aimed to determine whether the addition of intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) to chemoradiotherapy (CRT) improves outcome in patients with cervical cancer and poor prognostic factors. Patients with stage IB to IIA cervical cancer who had undergone radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy between August 2008 and December 2014 were retrospectively registered in this study. All patients received external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) + chemotherapy, and some patients additionally received ICBT...

HOX family members encode transcription factors crucial for embryogenesis and may be associated with carcinogenesis. Here, we evaluated the expression of 39 HOX genes in cervical cancer by using clinicopathological information and gene expression data of 308 patients from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. Correlations between mRNA expression of HOX family members and clinicopathological variables were explored. Seventy-three (23.7%) patients died during the follow-up period (median, 22.0 months). Overall mortality was significantly associated with advanced FIGO stage, lymph node metastasis, lymphovascular invasion, and increased HOXA1, HOXA5, HOXA6, and HOXC11 mRNA expression...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression level of long non-coding RNA promoter of CDKN1A antisense DNA damage activated RNA (lncRNA PANDAR) in cervical cancer and to analyze the effects of PANDAR on biological behaviors of cervical cancer and the clinical significance of PANDAR. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 68 pairs of cervical cancer and paired cancer-adjacent tissue specimens were collected. The relative expression of PANDAR in tissues was detected by quantitative Real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) so as to analyze the relationship between PANDAR and clinicopathological factors of cervical cancer and evaluate its clinical significance...

Cervical cancer remains one of the most common causes of gynecological cancer-associated death. Long non-coding RNA Loc554202 (lncRNA Loc554202) has been reported to be involved in the development of several types of cancer. However, the role of Loc554202 in cervical cancer remains unclear. In this study, we measured the expression levels of Loc554202 in cervical cancer tissues from 120 patients. The quantitative real-time PCR analysis showed the expression levels of Loc554202 were significantly higher in cervical cancer tissues compared with the adjacent non-tumor tissues...

Background: The clinical value of 3-field lymph node dissection (3FLND) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains controversial. This study aimed to identify the patterns and prognostic significance of cervical lymph node metastasis (CLNM) in ESCC. Methods: A retrospective review of 77 patients with ESCC who underwent esophagectomy and 3FLND between 2002 and 2016 was conducted. For each cervical node level, the efficacy index (EI), overall survival, recurrence rate, and complication rate were compared...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this multi-institutional study was to determine the prognostic impact of tumour parameters, such as tumour size (TS), tumour volume (TV), and marker expression, on survival during radiation therapy (RT) for cervical cancer patients. METHODS: A total of 231 patients with histologically confirmed cervical cancer, classified as Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) Ib2-IVa, were enrolled in this study. Pre- and mid-RT pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC-ag) analysis were performed twice, during RT and just before brachytherapy...

BACKGROUND: Cervical cancer is one of the most common malignant tumours of the female reproductive system, ranking second only to breast cancer in morbidity worldwide. Essential features of the progression of cervical cancer are invasion and metastasis, which are closely related to disease prognosis and mortality rate. At the present time there is no effective method to evaluate cancer invasion and metastasis before surgery. Here we report our study on molecular changes in biopsy tissue for the prognostic evaluation of cancer invasion and metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Cervical carcinoma (CC) is one of the most frequent neoplasms, especially in developing countries. The most common histopathological type is squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), followed by adenocarcinoma (AC) and adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC). Prognosis according to histological type is controversial. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to describe and compare the prognoses of the most common histologies of CC in the early stages. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed records of patients attended at the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología of Mexico with CC surgically treated Stages IA2-IB1 and IIA1, including the histological types SCC, AC, and ASC...

Tumours show an increased interstitial fluid pressure, which correlates with various pathophysiological features. Moreover, interstitial fluid pressure is a prognostic factor for cervical and lung cancer. However, there have been no reports on the usefulness of measuring interstitial fluid pressure in thymic epithelial tumours. Therefore, this study aimed to examine the relationship between interstitial fluid pressure and the clinicopathological characteristics of thymic epithelial tumours. Interstitial fluid pressure was prospectively measured at the centre of the tumour using a 1-Fr Mikro-Tip sensor catheter in 44 patients with thymic epithelial tumours, 40 with thymomas and 4 with thymic carcinomas...

OBJECTIVE: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a vital role in pathogenesis and progression of many cancers, including cervical cancer. However, importance of serum level of miR-101 in cervical cancer has rarely been studied. In the present study, clinical significance and prognostic value of serum miR-101 for cervical cancer was investigated. METHODS: Association between miR-101 level in cervical cancer tissues and prognosis of patients was analyzed by using data retrieved from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database, which was followed with our clinical study in which miR-101 serum level comparison between cervical cancer patients and healthy controls was conducted by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR)...

Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase-1 (FBP1), a gluconeogenesis rate-limiting enzyme expressed in various tissues, is important in the carcinogenesis of various cancers. To evaluate the association of FBP1 expression and carcinogenesis and chemoresistance in cervical cancer, the present study analyzed 140 patients of squamous cell carcinoma of cervical cancer (CSCC) who had adjuvant concurrent chemoradiation therapy following radical surgery. By detecting FBP1 protein expression in paraffin‑embedded tumor tissues through immunohistochemistry, it was observed that 50% of the cases had a low expression of FBP1, which was associated with a shorter overall survival time (P=0...
