AIM: Natural cytotoxicity receptors (NCR) are unique markers that regulate natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity and cytokine production. In this study, we investigated the expression of NCR (NKp46, NKp44, and NKp30) and cytokine production in NK cells derived from the uterine endometrium of women with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). We also investigated the expression of NCR in peripheral blood NK cells in pregnant women with and without a history of RPL. METHODS: The expression of NCR (NKp46, NKp44, and NKp30) in NK cells (CD56(dim) and CD56(bright) ) in the uterine endometrium was analyzed using 3-color flow cytometry...

REVIEW
M Christoffersen, Mht Troedsson
A transient uterine inflammation post-breeding is a normal physiological reaction in the mare, and it is believed that the inflammatory response is necessary to eliminate bacteria and excess spermatozoa introduced into the uterine lumen. A tight balance between multiple pro- and anti-inflammatory factors is required for resolving the breeding-induced inflammation within 24-36 hr in the reproductively healthy mare, whereas a subpopulation of mares is susceptible to development of a persistent infection that can interfere with fertility...

BACKGROUND: Trial of labour is a safe option for most women after one previous caesarean delivery. However, the proportion of women attempting trial of labour after previous caesarean delivery (TOLAC) has been declining in many countries. In addition, women with prior caesarean delivery appear to know little regarding their mode of delivery and healthcare providers' recommendations. The doctors' preferences exert a strong influence on patient's decision whether or not to pursue TOLAC...

OBJECTIVE: Primary ovarian mucinous tumors progress from benign adenoma to borderline tumors to invasive mucinous carcinoma. A proper differential diagnosis is crucial to discriminate malignancies at the early stages of disease. However, few biomarkers are clinically available. We designed this study to analyze the clinical application of the oncogene IMP3 in monitoring early malignancies in ovarian primary mucinous tumors. METHODS: We collected 250 samples of ovarian primary mucinous tumors along with the corresponding clinicopathological information between 2009 and 2015 at the Gynecology and Obstetrics Hospital of Fudan University and performed immunochemical assays...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The standard treatment of endometrial cancer (EC) and complex atypical hyperplasia (CAH) is hysterectomy with or without adnexectomy. In the last decade, several centers have attempted to perform hysteroscopic resection of malignant and pre-malignant polyps as an alternative to hysterectomy. In the present study, we evaluated the safety of this procedure in regard to residual uterine pathology. DESIGN: Retrospective chart review DESIGN CLASSIFICATION: Canadian Task Force classification II-2 SETTING: University hospital PATIENTS: 1766 women who underwent hysteroscopic polypectomy during the years 1998-2016 MEASUREMENTS: Patients with CAH and endometrioid type EC in the removed polyps who underwent hysterectomy were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Copper-containing contraceptive devices may deposit copper ions in the endometrium, resulting in implantation failure. The deposition of copper ions in many organs has been reported in patients with untreated Wilson's disease. Since these patients sometimes exhibit subfertility and/or early pregnancy loss, copper ions were also considered to accumulate in the uterine endometrium. Wilson's disease patients treated with zinc successfully delivered babies because zinc interfered with the absorption of copper from the gastrointestinal tract...

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer in the United States. It is typically diagnosed in postmenopausal women. However, given the increasing incidence of risk factors such as obesity and diabetes in younger women, it is becoming a more prevalent problem in this age group. When endometrial cancer is diagnosed in patients of reproductive age, the standard surgical option of hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy may not be ideal for women interested in future fertility. Hence, conservative options for select patients should be discussed along with the associated outcomes of each approach...

Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is generally a benign transitional phenomenon, and may even be a protective antioxidant mechanism for human neonates who may be vulnerable to the oxidative stress (compared to life in utero) encountered during birth an extra-uterine oxidative environment (1, 2). The pathophysiologic impact of neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia has been well reviewed in this supplement (see Jon fill-in). The severity of hyperbilirubinemia varies due to the magnitude of an imbalance between two major contributing processes: (i) an increase bilirubin production rate due to an increase in heme turnover (two to three times that of an adult) due to the degradation of fetal red blood cells (RBCs), which have a shortened lifespan, after birth (3, 4); and/or (ii) a diminished ability of the immature newborn liver to conjugate bilirubin and therefore excrete bilirubin in bile...

BACKGROUND: Poor maternal vitamin D status and elevated circulating corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) are associated with preterm birth. It is not known if these risk factors are independent or interrelated. Both are associated with inflammation. METHODS: We measured maternal circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) and CRH from 97 samples collected from 15 early-preterm, 31 late-preterm, 21 early-term, and 30 term births. The potential involvement of vitamin D in the regulation of inflammation was evaluated by Q-PCR in human uterine smooth muscle (UTSM) cell line...

CD31 has been shown to play a role in endothelial cell migration and angiogenesis, which are critical to the formation and function of the endometrium and myometrium in uterine development during early pregnancy. However, the role of CD31 in uterine receptivity during blastocyst implantation is poorly understood. The pregnancy rate in CD31-/- female mice mated with CD31+/+ male mice was higher than that observed in CD31+/+ female mice mated with CD31+/+ male mice. During the receptive phase of implantation, uterine glands were more developed in CD31-/- mice than in CD31+/+ mice, and the uterine weights of CD31-/- mice were increased...

The importance of the overall treatment time (OTT) has a paradoxical status in the current era of concomitant chemoradiotherapy. The main objective of this nationwide study was to evaluate the correlation between overall treatment duration and clinical outcome in cervical cancer patients treated primarily with curative concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT). In this population-based cohort study, 2,594 patients diagnosed with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage I-IVA uterine cervical cancer were studied...

Fadi W Abdul-Karim, Bin Yang
Cytologic-histologic correlation (CHC) represents a documented effort to obtain and compare, when available, gynecologic cytology reports with an interpretation of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion or malignancy, with the subsequent histopathology report, and to determine the possible cause of any discrepancy. The correlation is influenced by multiple closely interdependent clinical and pathologic factors. Many of these factors including the sensitivity and accuracy of colposcopy-directed biopsy, the diligence of the colposcopist, and the attributes of the cervical lesion represent "preanalytical" factors which can significantly affect the CHC outcome, but are often less emphasized during CHC process...

Sophisticated culturing conditions are required to grow cells in a three-dimensional (3D) environment. Cells then require a type of scaffold rich in proteins, growth factors, and signaling molecules that simulates their natural environment. Tissues from all species of animals have an organ-specific extracellular matrix (ECM) structure that plays a key role in cell proliferation and migration. Hence, the scaffold composition plays a significant role for any successful 3D cell culturing system. We developed a whole rat uterus ECM scaffold by the perfusion of detergents and ionic solutions through the vascular system of an isolated normal rat uterus in a process termed "decellularization...
