BACKGROUND: Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological cancer, almost 80% of all patients succumb the disease within 5 years of diagnosis. High mortality is caused especially by nonspecific symptoms, diagnosis in late stages and the absence of a specific biomarker. Currently, the most common diagnostic biomarkers are the membrane glycoprotein Cancer Antigen 125 (CA 125), the Human Epididymal Protein 4 (HE4) and the Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CAE). None of these biomarkers is specific only for ovarian cancer and increased levels may be caused by other diseases...

INTRODUCTION: Breast phyllodes tumors (PT) are uncommon fibroepithelial lesions having potential malignant features. These tumors have characteristic features, like pleomorphism, mitoses and overgrowth of the stroma with possible infiltrative margins. The clinical behaviour could be unpredictable, since the relatively high recurrence rate despite correct surgical strategy. Conventional diagnostic examinations show high sensitivity and specificity, but cannot demonstrate the differences between benign and malignant PT...

AIM: To explore the clinical value of CYFRA 21-1, HER-2/neu and NSE as tumor markers for differential diagnosis of malignant and benign pleural effusion. METHODS: Radioimmunoassay and ELISA were used to detect the serum and effusion levels of CYFRA 21-1, HER-2/neu and NSE in 62 patients with malignat pleural effusion and 48 patients with benign pleural effusion. The clinical properties were analyzed and the cut off values were determined through receiver operating characteristic(ROC) curve...

Parathyroid carcinoma is a very rare malignancy and the least common among endocrine malignat tumors. Its etiology is still unclear and some hypotheses have been suggested: previous external radiation to the neck, pregression from benign to malignant lesion, familial hyperparathyroidism. An early accurate diagnosis is very important since surgery is the most effective therapeutic approach to parathyroid carcinoma. Prognosis is quite variable and stress is laid on the early diagnosis and radical surgery which seem to be most favorable prognostic factors...
