Our aim was to examine the influence of BMI on the live-birth rate following IVF/ICSI and evaluate its specific contribution among other factors thus enabling accurate reproductive policy development. All patients that underwent IVF/ICSI at our center during January 2012-July 2015 were included in this retrospective study. A total of 1654 ICSI cycles were divided into four groups according to the patient's BMI (kg/m(2)): group I (normal weight): <25 (943 cycles); group II (overweight): 25-30 (403 cycles); group III (obese): 30-35 (212 cycles); group IV (morbid obesity): >35 (96 cycles)...

OBJECTIVE: The study was to evaluate whether fibrotic markers, endometrial receptivity markers and SDF-1/CXCR4 had been changed in the treatment of intrauterine adhesions (IUAs) by different dosages of estrogen. STUDY DESIGN: A total of 39 patients with IUAs were treated with EV 4 mg or 9 mg randomly post-surgery. TGF-β1/MMP-9, VEGF/αvβ3 and SDF-1/CXCR4 were detected in endometrial tissue before and after treatment by real-time PCR and Western blot. RESULTS: TGF-β1 and MMP-9 expression significantly decreased after treatment for 3 months than before (p < ...

Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) develops in an inflammatory microenvironment with reduced microbial diversity, but mechanisms for these influences remain poorly characterized. We hypothesized that mutations targeting the Toll-like receptor (TLR) pathway could disrupt innate immune signaling and promote a microenvironment that favors tumorigenesis. Through interrogating whole genome sequencing data from 171 EAC patients, we showed that non-synonymous mutations collectively affect the TLR pathway in 25/171 (14...

OBJECTIVE: To present in detail our surgical technique and to show our initial experience with ureteral reimplantation using the transumbilical LESS approach to treat patients with ureteral stenosis secondary to various diseases and surgical complications. METHODS: We performed 7 ureteral reimplantations from February 2012, using the multichannel Richard- Wolf (KeyPort) platform placed transumbilical by a small 2-2,5 cm transversal incision. We always use a 3.5 mm minilaparoscopy accessory trocar in the right iliac fossa, that is crucial to perform the laparoscopic suturing safely for the patient and in an optimal time...

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) are aggressive soft-tissue tumors. They can occur in patients with neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF-1) or as sporadic tumors. Only 10% of MPNSTs are radiation induced. Divergent differentiation in MPNSTs can occur in 15% of cases and may include cartilage, bone, skeletal muscle, blood vessels, and very rarely well-formed glands, the latter typically described in NF-1-associated MPNSTs. We report an exceedingly rare case of radiation induced glandular MPNST arising in a neurofibroma of the femoral nerve in a patient previously irradiated for endometrial carcinoma...

Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is one of the most common gynecologic malignancy, but molecular mechanisms of the development and progression of EC remain unclear. Here we showed that the expression of DICER1 was negatively associated with the level of histone methylation, histone acetylation and PRC2 components SUZ12 and EZH2 in EC cells. In addition, knockdown of DICER1 significantly downregulated miR-200b and let-7i, which may then regulate their targets SUZ12 and EZH2. Furthermore, knockdown of DICER1 remarkably suppressed the expression of epithelial cell marker E-cadherin, induced the expression of mesenchymal cell marker Vimentin, and promoted the invasion of EC cells...

An 11-year-old female goat had invasive and metastatic endometrial adenocarcinoma in the uterus. There was a notable proliferation of endometrial epithelial cells in a tubular growth pattern, with a desmoplastic response. The endometrial epithelial tumor cells metastasized to the kidney, liver and lung. In contrast to the primary and metastatic tumor cells, pleomorphic tumor cells with a choriocarcinoma-like growth pattern infiltrated the mesometrium. Cell proliferation activity was high in both types of tumor cells...

Moderate invasion of trophoblasts into the endometrium is crucial for successful pregnancy. Benzo[a]pyrene-7,8-diol-9,10-epoxide (BPDE) is a carcinogenic metabolite of benzo[a]pyrene which causes various diseases. We investigated the effects of BPDE on migration and invasion of trophoblast HTR-8/SVneo cells. Migration and invasion of cells exposed to 0.25-1.0μM BPDE for 24h were significantly inhibited. Moreover, tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) was also significantly reduced after incubation with HTR-8/SVneo cells treated with 0...

Endometrial cancer (EC) is the estrogen-dependent gynecologic malignancy, however the molecular mechanism involved in the development and progression of EC remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of RIZ1 in EC. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that RIZ1was decreased in EC than in normal endometrium. Lower RIZ1 level was correlated with high-grade carcinoma (p = 0.048) and positive expression of ERα (p = 0.004). In EC cells, estrogen could down regulated the expression of RIZ1, however, ICI182,780 could up regulated the expression of RIZ1...

OBJECTIVE: Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping continues to evolve in the surgical staging of endometrial cancer (EC). The purpose of this trial was to identify the sensitivity, false negative rate (FNR) and FN predictive value (FNPV) of SLN compared to complete pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy (LAD) in women with high-risk EC. METHODS: Women with high-risk EC (grade 3, serous, clear cell, carcinosarcoma) were enrolled in this prospective surgical trial. All patients underwent preoperative PET/CT and intraoperative SLN biopsy followed by LAD...

The hormone estrogen is involved in both female and male reproduction, as well as numerous other biological systems including the neuroendocrine, vascular, skeletal, and immune systems. Therefore, it is also implicated in many different diseases and conditions such as infertility, obesity, osteoporosis, endometriosis, and a variety of cancers. Estrogen works through its two distinct nuclear receptors, estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and estrogen receptor beta (ERβ). Various transcriptional regulation mechanisms have been identified as the mode of action for estrogen, mainly the classical mechanism with direct DNA binding but also a nongenomic mode of action and one using tethered or indirect binding...

OBJECTIVES: Women seeking sterilization are usually parous and have no major complains, such as pelvic pain. This could be a good model to indirectly assess the prevalence of endometriosis in the general population. Prevalence of endometriosis in women undergoing tubal sterilization by laparoscopy has been assessed in 17 published reports. Results indicate a surprising wide variation of prevalence of endometriosis, ranging from 1.4% to 43.3 %. This clinical study describes the prevalence and clinical presentations of endometriosis identified at interval laparoscopic tubal sterilization, as a close representation of endometriosis in general population...
