REVIEW
Karen L Talia, W Glenn McCluggage
Adenocarcinoma of the cervix is less common than squamous cell carcinoma, although its relative prevalence is increasing. Oncogenic (high-risk) human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is implicated in the development of approximately 90% of all cervical adenocarcinomas. Of the remaining non-HPV associated tumours, the most frequent is gastric-type adenocarcinoma (GAS), which is recognised by the World Health Organization as a form of mucinous adenocarcinoma of the cervix. Minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA) of mucinous type (adenoma malignum) is considered an extremely well differentiated variant of GAS and is encompassed within the category of GAS...

Introduction: Cervical cancer still ranks as the most frequent cancer among women in India. Infection with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) results in precancerous lesions and invasive cervical cancer. Interaction of HPV oncogenic proteins with cellular regulatory proteins leads to upregulation of p16INK4A, a cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor. Therefore, p16INK4A overexpression is a surrogate biomarker of HPV infection making it useful in evaluating HPV associated premalignant and malignant lesions of gynaecological tract...

We repaired a long horizontal defect in the lower lip caused by the resection of squamous cell carcinoma by reconstructing the white lip with a V-Y advancement flap and vermilion with a tongue flap. During this procedure, we deepithelialized the V-Y flap, lifted the upper margin of the flap and sutured it to the remaining upper margin of the lip, and then covered it with the tongue flap, resulting in the successful reconstruction of a thick lip. There were no postoperative complications in articulation or swallowing...

Introduction: Squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus is a common cancer among South Africans. Due to the absence of effective screening and surveillance programme for early detection and late presentation, squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage or when metastasis has already occurred. The 5-year survival is often quoted at 5%-10%, which is poor. Objectives: To determine the association between oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and non-acid gastro-oesophageal reflux disease...

Objectives: TNM staging, especially for lymph node metastasis, is the scoring system most widely used among prognostic factors for cancer survival. Several biomarkers have been studied as serologic markers, but their specificity is low and clinical applications are difficult. This study aimed to establish a scoring system for patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) using platelet (PLT) and mean platelet volume (MPV) levels measured postoperatively and to evaluate their significance as prognostic factors...

Background: In Japan, there has been a lot of reports showing an association between facial flushing after light alcohol consumption and heterozygosity for inactive aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2). Persons with inactive ALDH2 may have a higher risk of alcohol-related oral, pharyngeal and esophageal cancers, compared with those with wild-type ALDH2. The purpose of this study was to examine whether flushers with oral or pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma have an increased risk of synchronous or metachronous cancer of the upper gastrointestinal (UGI) tract...

Posterior pharyngeal wall squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are rare and have an associated poor prognosis. Progress in transoral resection techniques, in particular, transoral robotic surgery (TORS), have renewed the role of surgery in their treatment. This article presents the oncological and functional results obtained by the French Group of Head and Neck Robotic Surgery for TORS for posterior pharyngeal wall SCC-curative surgery. This retrospective, multicentre study presents data collected between September 2009 and November 2013 for patients treated with TORS for posterior pharyngeal wall SCCs...

Cervical lymphadenopathy is a common indication for imaging evaluation of the neck. Besides metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, cervical lymphadenopathy can be due to many causes, with simple reactive lymphadenopathy on one end of the spectrum and malignant lymphadenopathy due to a distant infraclavicular primary, on the other end. A systematic approach to the cause of cervical lymphadenopathy, which includes pattern of lymph node enlargement, lymph node characteristics, systemic symptoms, and extranodal abnormalities, can be very useful in arriving at the correct diagnosis...

There remain gaps in knowledge concerning how vascular morphology evolves during carcinogenesis. In this study, we imaged neovascularization by label-free dark field microscopy of a DMBA-induced hamster cheek pouch model of oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Wavelength-dependent imaging revealed distinct vascular features at different imaging depths and vessel sizes. Vascular tortuosity increased significantly in high-risk lesions, while diameter decreased significantly in hyperplastic and SCC lesions. Large vessels preserved the same trends seen in the original images, whereas small vessels displayed different trends, with length and diameter increasing during carcinogenesis...

The incidence of female urethral cancer is rare and accounts for 0.02% of all women's cancers. It is dominated by epidermoid carcinoma, which most commonly develops in the distal portion of the urethra, extending to inguinal lymph nodes. The diagnosis is confirmed in the distal forms on the basis of uretrocystoscopy with biopsy. Abdominopelvic MRI allows to determine tumor extension as well as its infiltration into tissues and peri-urethral organs. As in superficial tumors of the distal urethra, simple circumferential resection of the urethra associated with resection of the adjacent portion of the anterior surface of the vagina is sufficient...

INTRODUCTION: It is crucial to diagnose the subtype of lung cancer quickly and accurately for effective therapy. Conventional cytology staining sometimes provides limited information, and additional tissue is often required to diagnose lung cancer. Cell blocks (CB) recovered during endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) increases the diagnostic accuracy of the procedure and the likelihood of additional valuable histochemical and immunohistochemical staining...

Cells encapsulation is a micro-technology widely applied in cell and tissue research, tissue transplantation, and regenerative medicine. In this paper, we proposed a growth of microtissue model for the human keratinocytes (HaCaT) cell line and an oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) cell line (ORL-48) based on a simple aerosol microencapsulation technique. At an extrusion rate of 20 μL/min and air flow rate of 0.3 L/min programmed in the aerosol system, HaCaT and ORL-48 cells in alginate microcapsules were encapsulated in microcapsules with a diameter ranging from 200 to 300 μm...
