Carcinosarcoma (CS) is a rare tumor, consisting of both carcinomatous and sarcomatous components. In this paper, we present a case of CS arising from a pleomorphic adenoma (PA) of the submandibular gland. A 64-year-old Japanese man presented with a left submandibular mass that had developed for 20 years with complaints of pain for the last 3 months. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a lesion involving the left submandibular gland. The patient underwent total dissection of the left submandibular gland and left cervical lymph nodes...

A 10-year-old female Australian Cattle Dog was referred for investigation of a mediastinal mass. During clinical examination, a mandarin- sized mass was detected ventrally of the trachea. According to computed tomographic (CT) findings and cytology of a fine-needle aspirate, thyroid neoplasia was suspected. The assumed tumour affected the left thyroid gland and was staged as stadium II because of enlargement of the ipsilateral cervical and retropharyngeal lymph nodes. The left thyroid, including the parathyroid gland, was removed surgically with a guarded prognosis...

High-risk human papillomavirus infection is essential for the malignant transformation of cervical cancer and can inhibit host miR-27a expression. We investigated the role and mechanism of miR-27a in cervical cancer progression. miR-27a is decreased in cervical cancer cell lines and miR-27a-agomir inhibited the cell proliferation, migration, and invasion properties of HeLa (adenocarcinoma) cells, but not in SiHa cells (squamous cell carcinoma). Luciferase assays revealed that miR-27a directly targets the 3'-UTR of transforming growth factor beta receptor I (TGF-βRI) and downregulates TGF-β signaling...

Melon (Cucumis melo L.) has high economic value and in recent years, its production has increased; however, part of the fruit is wasted. Usually, inedible parts such as peel and seeds are discarded during processing and consumption. Extracts of melon residues were prepared and their phenolic compounds, antioxidants and antiproliferative activities were evaluated. Total phenolic compounds were found in hydroethanolic, hydromethanolic, and aqueous extracts, especially for melon peel (1.016 mg gallic acid equivalent/100 g)...

In recent decades, emerging evidence demonstrates that ultraconserved elements (UCEs) encoding noncoding RNAs serve as regulators of gene expression. Until now, the role of uc.189 in human cancers remains undefined and the clinical significance of uc.189 in gynecological cancers remains unknown. This study was to identify the prognostic value of uc.189 expression in gynecological cancers. Tissue microarrays were constructed with 243 samples including 116 cervical squamous cell carcinomas (CSCCs), 98 endometrial adenocarcinomas (EACs), 29 ovarian cystoadenocarcinomas(OCAs), and corresponding normal tissues...

PURPOSE: Breast cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in women all over the world. Many of these women resist the common treatments. Therefore, it is important to find new products to increase the efficacy of the treatment process. Legume beans, with their various pharmacological properties, can be regarded as a sensitizer when they are combined with radiation. The present study strove to survey the radio-sensitivity effect of proteins isolated from mung bean aqueous extract on the human breast adenocarcinoma cell line (MCF-7), human cervical cancer cells (Hela) and the human dermal fibroblast cell line...

Cervical cancer recently has become more common among younger women in Japan. Diagnosing early-stage cancer is straightforward using cervical cytodiagnosis and histological diagnosis. However, postmenopausal endophytic cervical cancer and skip lesions in cervical adenocarcinoma are difficult to detect. We compared the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of 18F-fluorodeoxy-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for primary staging of cervical cancer and evaluated the relationship of the imaging findings to prognosis...

Cervical gastric-type adenocarcinomas are aggressive non-human papillomavirus-related carcinomas with a propensity for extracervical spread, including unusual sites such as the omentum, peritoneum, and ovary. We report 7 cases of cervical gastric-type adenocarcinoma with fallopian tube involvement predominantly in the form of mucosal colonization without underlying invasion. As far as we are aware, this has not been previously described and this report adds to the literature regarding metastatic neoplasms, which may exhibit tubal mucosal involvement and mimic an in situ lesion at this site...

Cervical cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer deaths among females in underdeveloped countries. This study aimed to identify several novel cervical cancer-specific targeting peptides (CSPs) to provide new methods for the effective diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer. Peptide library screening in vivo was performed on human cervical cancer xenografts with Ph.D.™-12 and C7C phage display peptide libraries. Two specific peptide sequences (GDALFSVPLEVY and KQNLAEG), which were enriched in tumors, were screened, and respectively, named CSP-GD and CSP-KQ through three rounds of biopanning...
