  • [Title] Optimizing orthotopic cell transplantation in the mouse adrenal gland.
  • Orthotopic cell transplantation models are important for a complete understanding of cell-cell interactions as well as tumor biology.
  • In published studies of orthotopic transplantation in the mouse adrenal gland, human neuroblastoma cells have been shown to invade and occupy the adrenal, but in these investigations a true orthotopic model was not established.
  • Here we show an orthotopic model in which transplanted cells are retained within the adrenal gland by formation of a fibrin clot.
  • To establish an appropriate technique, we used brightly fluorescent 10 microm polystyrene microspheres injected into the mouse adrenal gland.
  • When the microspheres were injected in a fibrinogen/thrombin mixture, fluorescence was confined to the adrenal gland.
  • When 3 x 10(5) cells were implanted orthotopically, by 16 days the cell mass had expanded and had invaded the cortex, whereas when 1 x 10(5) cells were used, tumor masses were much smaller.
  • When mice were sacrificed at different time points, we found that tumor growth resulting was progressive and that by 26 days cells there was extensive invasion into the cortex or almost complete replacement of the cortex with tumor cells.
  • In summary, the present orthotopic model for intra-adrenal cell transplantation is valuable for investigation of growth of neoplastic cells of both cortical and medullary origin and should be useful for future studies of cortex-medulla interactions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Candidate gene mutation analysis in bilateral adrenal pheochromocytoma and sympathetic paraganglioma.
  • Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) are rare tumors that arise from chromaffin tissue in the adrenal medulla, but can also occur in the abdomen outside the adrenals and are then called sympathetic paragangliomas (sPGLs).
  • According to the literature, between 15 and 25% of apparently sporadic adrenal PCC and sPGL are caused by germline mutations in RET, von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL), succinate dehydrogenase subunit B (SDHB), or subunit D SDHD.
  • However, few studies have addressed the mutationfrequency of these candidate genes in selected subgroups of PCC andsPGL, such as bilateral adrenal PCC or extra-adrenal sPGL, and none have looked at somatic mutations by analyzing tumor tissue.
  • Therefore, we have investigated the occurrence of germline and somatic mutations in RET, VHL, SDHB, and SDHD in comparatively large series of bilateral adrenal PCC (n = 33 patients) and sPGL (n = 26 patients), with the aim of determining the mutation frequency of each of these genes and to establish a genetic testing algorithm.
  • Twenty-one RET, two VHL germline, and one SDHD mutations were found in the patients with bilateral adrenal PCC.
  • We suggest that sequential mutation analysis should be directed first at RET, followed by VHL and SDHD for patients with bilateral adrenal PCC at diagnosis, and at SDHB and SDHD for patients with sPGL.

  • [Title] The optimal imaging of adrenal tumours: a comparison of different methods.
  • Computed tomography (CT; unenhanced, followed by contrast-enhanced examinations) is the cornerstone of imaging of adrenal tumours.
  • Functional nuclear medicine imaging is useful for adrenal lesions that are not adequately characterised with CT and MRI.
  • Scintigraphy with [(131)I]-6-iodomethyl norcholesterol (a labelled cholesterol analogue) can differentiate adrenal cortical adenomas from carcinomas.
  • The specific and useful roles of adrenal imaging include the characterisation of tumours, assessment of true tumour size, differentiation of adenomas from carcinomas and metastases, and differentiation of hyperfunctioning from non-functioning lesions.
  • Adrenal imaging complements and assists the clinical and hormonal evaluation of adrenal tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sustentaculoma: report of a case of a distinctive neoplasm of the adrenal medulla.
  • A case of a morphologically distinctive tumor of the adrenal medulla occurring in a 54-year-old woman is described.
  • On microscopic examination, the tumor was well circumscribed and characterized by the presence of ill-defined, irregular nests of spindle cells with oval to elongated nuclei, tiny nucleoli, and abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm.
  • The tumor was associated with a moderate infiltrate of lymphocytes and plasma cells with occasional lymphoid follicles.
  • Immunohistochemical studies demonstrated the tumor cells to be strongly reactive for vimentin, S-100 protein, and CD56, and nonreactive for glial fibrillary acidic protein, chromogranin, synaptophysin, melanoma-associated antigens, and dendritic cell markers.
  • The morphology, immunophenotype, and ultrastructure of this unique neoplasm suggest derivation from sustentacular cells of the adrenal medulla.
  • We propose the designation "sustentaculoma" for this hitherto undescribed neoplasm of the adrenal gland.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The role of PET in the surgical approach to adrenal disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Appropriate surgical approach to diseases of the adrenal requires a diagnosis sufficient to determine the biochemical status of adrenal dysfunction and anatomic evaluation sufficient to differentiate unilateral from bilateral disease, intra-adrenal from extra-adrenal neoplasm, adrenal tumor recurrence or adrenal metastases.
  • High resolution computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance have been the primary imaging modalities for the evaluation of anatomy, while scintigraphic studies have played a secondary role in diagnosis.
  • The recent availability of functional imaging provided by positron emission tomography (PET) with radiopharmaceuticals designed to depict substrate precursor uptake, cellular metabolism or receptor binding in neoplasms and CT as a single modality, hybrid PET/CT, to directly correlate function and anatomy has had a significant impact upon the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to many cancers and has been applied to adrenal disease with some early success that we describe in this review.
  • METHODS: In addition to the authors' experience, a search of Medline and PubMed databases was performed using search terms: 'adrenal scintigraphy', 'positron tomography', 'computed tomography', 'adrenal surgery', 'adrenal mass', '(18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose', 'adrenal carcinoma', 'adrenal medulla' and 'pheochromocytoma'.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Present PET radiopharmaceuticals and their use in hybrid PET/CT have demonstrated efficacy in the preoperative and follow-up evaluation of neoplasms of the adrenal cortex and medulla that hopefully will continue to improve with the development of newer tracers that continue to exploit unusual characteristics of the adrenals.

  • Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare but aggressive cancer with unknown aetiology.
  • Here, we show that constitutive activation of beta-catenin in the adrenal cortex of transgenic mice resulted in progressive steroidogenic and undifferentiated spindle-shaped cells hyperplasia as well as dysplasia of the cortex and medulla.
  • Altogether these observations demonstrate that constitutively active beta-catenin is an adrenal oncogene which triggers benign aldosterone-secreting tumour development and promotes malignancy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Lack of association between microsatellite instability and benign adrenal tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: The adrenal gland may give rise to pheochromocytomas, which are catecholamine-producing tumors originating from the adrenal medulla, or to adrenocortical tumors, which derive from the adrenocortical cortex and may be secreting or not.
  • AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate a third genetic mechanism by evaluating microsatellite instability using the reference markers (Bat25, Bat26, D2S123, D5S346, D17S250) validated by the National Cancer Institute.
  • No microsatellite instability was detected in any tumor.
  • A second patient with a MEN-2A syndrome and a two-sided pheochromocytoma exhibited a loss of heterozygosity for D2S123 in the right tumor only and a retention of heterozygosity for all markers in the left tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that microsatellite instability, evaluated by the five reference markers of the National Cancer Institute, is not a feature of benign adrenal tumors.

  • We transplanted, in rats, DES-induced prolactinoma cells into the adrenal medulla or under the renal capsule, two tissues rich and poor in catecholaminergic innervation, respectively.
  • METHODS: Prolactinoma was dose-dependently induced in ovariectomized female rats implanted with 10 and 20 mg DES, and tumor cells taken from prolactinoma induced by 20 mg DES were either transplanted under the renal capsule or into the adrenal medulla.
  • RESULTS: Although the adrenal medulla, with its high dopamine content to inhibit prolactin secretion, was devoid of any tumoral development, a significant tumoral development was evident under the renal capsule, seemingly because of no inhibitory control over prolactin secretion coexisting with the dopamine deficiency of the tissue.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIMS: Phaeochromocytomas are rare but potentially life-threatening neuroendocrine tumours of the adrenal medulla or sympathetic nervous system ganglia.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: COX-2 and Bcl-2 expression were examined immunohistochemically in tissue from 41 sporadic phaeochromocytoma patients followed up for a minimum of 5 years after diagnosis.
  • There was a statistically significant association between COX-2 histoscore (intensity x proportion) and the development of tumour recurrence or metastases (P = 0.006).
  • A significant relationship was observed between coexpression of COX-2 and Bcl-2 in the primary tumour and the presence of recurrent disease (P = 0.034).
  • A highly significant association was observed between (i) tumour-associated expression of these two oncoproteins (P = 0.001) and (ii) COX-2 histoscore and the presence of Bcl-2 expression (P = 0.002).
  • CONCLUSIONS: COX-2 and Bcl-2 may promote phaeochromocytoma malignancy, and these oncoproteins may be valuable surrogate markers of an aggressive tumour phenotype.

  • It has been established that following chronic exposure, rats exhibited an increase in the incidence of adrenal pheochromocytomas, testicular mesotheliomas, thyroid adenomas and mammary neoplasms in F344 rats.
  • Acrylamide increased DNA synthesis in the target tissues (thyroid, testicular mesothelium, adrenal medulla) at all doses and time points examined.
  • In summary, acrylamide caused both an increase in DNA synthesis and DNA damage in mammalian tissues and cells suggesting that DNA reactivity and cell proliferation, in concert, may contribute to the observed acrylamide-induced carcinogenicity in the rat and has implication on the possible risk for human neoplasm development.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Despite extensive molecular investigation of adrenal pheochromocytomas, no information is available on their molecular and mismatch repair (MMR) profiles by topographic compartments.
  • DESIGN AND SETTING: Microdissected samples from the peripheral and internal zones of 143 pheochromocytomas from a referral hospital (95 sporadic and 48 associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A) were selected for loss of heterozygosity and single nucleotide polymorphism analyses.

  • The diagnosis of a malignant pheochromocytoma (PC) can only be established by the presence of distant metastases, but a subset of apparently benign PCs develop metastases.
  • The reference consisted of laser microdissected tissue from normal adrenal medulla.
  • Comparative analysis by microarray of all ten PCs (benign/malignant) versus normal adrenal medulla revealed a more than twofold expression difference in 455/539 and 491/671 genes respectively.
  • Several of these genes are known to participate on adrenal tumorigenesis, potential tumor suppressor genes, and oncogenes.

  • [Title] Distinct organ-specific metastatic potential of individual breast cancer cells and primary tumors.
  • We used bioluminescence imaging to reveal patterns of metastasis formation by human breast cancer cells in immunodeficient mice.
  • Individual cells from a population established in culture from the pleural effusion of a breast cancer patient showed distinct patterns of organ-specific metastasis.
  • Single-cell progenies derived from this population exhibited markedly different abilities to metastasize to the bone, lung, or adrenal medulla, which suggests that metastases to different organs have different requirements.
  • Unsupervised classification using the transcriptomic data set supported the hypothesis that organ-specific metastasis by breast cancer cells is controlled by metastasis-specific genes that are separate from a general poor-prognosis gene expression signature.
