  • [Title] Unusual metastasis of malignant aortic body tumor to multiple bones in a dog.
  • Unusual metastasis of malignant aortic body tumor to multiple bones was detected in a 5-year-old female English Setter dog.
  • At necropsy, multiple tumor masses of various sizes were observed also in the bones as well as the heart base and tracheobronchial lymph node.
  • Tumor masses of L2 and T11 protruded into the vertebral canal and compressed corresponding sites of spinal cord, leading to paraplegia.
  • Histopathologically, the tumor cells, arranged in sheets or nests, were polyhedral, lightly eosinophilic, finely granular cytoplasm with mostly round to oval nucleus and had scattered bizarre giant cells.
  • Ultrastructural study revealed the characteristic findings that tumor cells contained a large number of small, electron-dense, membrane-limited secretory granules in cytoplasm.
  • This is thought to be an extremely rare case having multiple bone metastases of a malignant aortic body tumor.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the thoracic aorta associated with ulcer-like projection has not been reported previously.
  • The hypovascular tumor of the thoracic aorta involved the mural layer, which showed intra- and extra-mural growth patterns and no significant filling defect within the aortic lumen, and mimicked ulcer-like projection with secondary pseudoaneurysm formation.
  • Aortic tumor, although rare, should be included among the causes of an ulcer-like projection.

  • [Title] Contribution of host MMP-2 and MMP-9 to promote tumor vascularization and invasion of malignant keratinocytes.
  • In the present study, we assessed the impact of single or combined MMP deficiencies in in vivo and in vitro models of angiogenesis (malignant keratinocyte transplantation and the aortic ring assay, respectively).
  • MMP-9 was predominantly expressed by neutrophils in tumor transplants, whereas MMP-2 and MMP-3 were stromal.
  • Neither the single deficiency of MMP-2, MMP-3, or MMP-9, nor the combined absence of MMP-9 and MMP-3 did impair tumor invasion and vascularization in vivo.
  • However, there was a striking cooperative effect in double MMP-2:MMP-9-deficient mice as demonstrated by the absence of tumor vascularization and invasion.
  • In contrast, the combined lack of MMP-2 and MMP-9 did not impair the in vitro capillary outgrowth from aortic rings.
  • These results point to the importance of a cross talk between several host cells for the in vivo tumor promoting and angiogenic effects of MMP-2 and MMP-9.
  • Our data demonstrate for the first time in an experimental model that MMP-2 and MMP-9 cooperate in promoting the in vivo invasive and angiogenic phenotype of malignant keratinocytes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary aortic intimal sarcoma.
  • Aortic intimal angiosarcoma is extremely rare, and the prognosis of patients with a tumor is unfavorable even if they have undergone surgery.
  • We treated a patient with primary intimal angiosarcoma of the aortic arch who underwent an operation.
  • The tumor originated from the inner wall of the aortic arch on the lesser curve.
  • In order to remove the tumor completely, the entire aortic arch from the ascending to the middle of descending aorta was resected through an L-shape skin incision.
  • It grew into the aortic lumen while spreading along the aortic intima, focally infiltrating the media.
  • According to some reports endoarterectomy has been performed to treat this type of tumor, since the malignant cells are thought to be limited to the luminal surface.
  • However, we favor aortic resections and graft interpositions rather than an endoarterectomy because the tumor could have invaded the media.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Treatment of metastatic malignant melanoma localized to an extremity].
  • BACKGROUND: At the Norwegian Radium Hospital, most patients who were treated for metastases (localized to an extremity) from malignant melanoma in the period 1977-99 underwent intra-arterial chemotherapy combined with radiotherapy.
  • We have evaluated the effects of this treatment, which has now been replaced by isolated limb perfusion (with melphalan and tumor necrosis factor).
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical records were reviewed for patients with metastatic malignant melanoma (localized to an extremity) who had been treated at the Norwegian Radium Hospital with intra-arterial chemotherapy (5-[3,3 dimethyl-1-triazeno]-imidazole-4-carboxamide [DTIC]) in the period 1977-99.
  • In one case the intra-arterial catheterisation caused serious aortic damage.
  • INTERPRETATION: It is possible to achieve long-term remission in patients with metastatic malignant melanoma localized to an extremity after intra-arterial chemotherapy combined with radiotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Malignant pheochromocytoma of the organ of Zuckerkandl requiring aortic and vena caval reconstruction.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe a case of a malignant pheochromocytoma located in the organ of Zuckerkandl that required aortic and vena caval resection and reconstruction.
  • Imaging characteristics of the left adrenal mass were consistent with a benign adenoma, but CT also demonstrated a hypervascular para-aortic mass.
  • 123I-metaiodo-benzylguanidine scanning with fusion CT imaging demonstrated increased radiopharmaceutical uptake within the para-aortic mass consistent with a paraganglioma in the organ of Zuckerkandl.
  • Findings from CT angiography of the abdomen and pelvis suggested aortic involvement and vena caval thrombus.
  • The mass was excised en bloc, including portions of the aorta, inferior vena cava, and right ureter.
  • The aorta and vena cava were reconstructed using Dacron grafts.
  • Final pathologic and operative findings confirmed a malignant pheochromocytoma of the organ of Zuckerkandl with invasion into the wall of the inferior vena cava and tumor thrombus extending into the lumen.
  • CONCLUSION: Malignant pheochromocytoma of the organ of Zuckerkandl involving the aorta and inferior vena cava is exceedingly rare, and although surgical resection and reconstruction can be radical and aggressive, this treatment offers the only chance for cure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Tumor shedding of laminin binding protein modulates angiostatin production in vitro and interferes with plasmin-derived inhibition of angiogenesis in aortic ring cultures.
  • A 67 kDa protein, the laminin binding protein (LBP), is shed from malignant cells in significant amounts and binds to laminin-1 (Starkey et al., Cytometry 1999;35:37-47; Karpatová et al., J Cell Biochem 1996;60:226-34).
  • We hypothesize that matrix-bound LBP could modulate local tumor angiogenesis.
  • Using rat aortic ring assays, we also show that shed LBP reverses plasmin-dependent inhibition of vascular outgrowth.
  • The stable LBP fragments were tested for binding to laminin-1 and for competition with shed LBP activity in the aortic ring assay.
  • Since this fragment binds to laminin-1 and modulates angiogenesis, it appears likely that binding of shed LBP to matrix laminin-1 is related to its functions in tumor angiogenesis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Hemangiosarcoma after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair.
  • CASE REPORT: A 50-year-old man with Klinefelter syndrome presented 5 years after EVAR with a mass at the infrarenal aorta outside the stent-graft.
  • The stent-graft with the surrounding aorta was removed and replaced by a conventional tube graft.
  • The tumor recurred after 12 months, with pulmonary metastases and tumor embolic occlusion of his left femoral artery.
  • CONCLUSION: Morphological changes of the aneurysm wall seen on computed tomographic scans of EVAR patients may not be incidental or signs of infection; rather, a malignant tumor of the aorta or lymphatic disease, although rare, have to be taken into consideration as well.

  • A 49-year-old man who had a huge testicular tumor with retroperitoneal lymph node metastasis and bilateral multiple pulmonary metastases was referred to our hospital.
  • Firstly orchiectomy was done obtaining the pathological diagnosis of mixed type germ cell tumor.
  • After cisplatin-based chemotherapy, he underwent resection of the retroperitoneal lymph node involving the abdominal aorta and the inferior vena cava.
  • Both great vessels were resected with the tumor and reconstructed with prosthetic grafts.
  • Microscopically, all resected metastatic tumors were diagnosed to be mature teratoma without viable malignant cells.
  • Follow-up CT scan demonstrates patency of aortic and vena caval bypass grafts without local recurrence or distant metastasis.

  • Of these cases, 5-8% are clinically hyperthyroid and 5-10% of these tumors are malignant.
  • CASE REPORT: A 53-year-old female presented with a 19 x 5 x 5 cm pelvic mass that was treated with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, pelvic and para-aortic lymph node sampling, omentectomy and appendectomy and staging for an ovarian tumor.
  • Histopathology revealed papillary thyroid carcinoma arising in struma ovarii (malignant struma ovarii).
  • CONCLUSION: Malignant struma ovarii is a very rare malignant ovarian teratoma.
  • In young patients unilateral oophorectomy and complete surgical staging should be considered when the tumor is confined to the one ovary (stage Ia).
  • Long-term follow-up for the detection of metastases or tumor recurrence by serial serum thyroglobulin and (131)I scan or positron emission tomography/computed tomography may be required in selected patients with this rare tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Relevance of nuclear medicine in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant paraganglioma].
  • Their treatment depends on the extension and functional characteristics of the tumor.
  • CLINICAL CASE: A 34-year-old male was diagnosed with a paraganglioma at the level of the aortic bifurcation by means of laboratory tests, imaging studies and nuclear medicine studies.
  • Nuclear medicine studies allow the diagnosis of a malignant paraganglioma with presence of bone metastasis.
  • The therapy includes surgical removal of the tumor and ablation of residual malignant tissue and metastatic lesions by radiotherapy with 131I-MIBG.
  • Radiotherapeutic treatment was possible due to the capacity of the tumor to uptake and to concentrate the radioactive hormonal analog.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In cases of paraganglioma, in addition to the localization of the tumor and the evaluation of biochemical alterations, it is indispensable to obtain anatomic and functional evaluation provided by nuclear medicine studies in order to achieve appropriate diagnoses and treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] AAL881, a novel small molecule inhibitor of RAF and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor activities, blocks the growth of malignant glioma.
  • Malignant gliomas are highly proliferative and angiogenic cancers resistant to conventional therapies.
  • AAL881 decreased the proliferation of bovine aortic endothelial cells as well as the tumor cell secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor and inhibited the invasion of glioma cells through an artificial extracellular matrix.
  • Orally administered AAL881 was well tolerated with minimal weight loss in non-tumor-bearing mice.
  • Established s.c. human malignant glioma xenografts grown in immunocompromised mice treated with a 10-day course of oral AAL881 exhibited growth delays relative to control tumors, frequently resulting in long-term complete regressions.
  • These effects are distinct from our prior experience with VEGFR2 inhibitors, suggesting that targeting RAF itself or in combination with VEGFR2 induces profound tumor responses in gliomas and may serve as a novel therapeutic approach in patients with malignant gliomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Higher sensitivity of Adamts12-deficient mice to tumor growth and angiogenesis.
  • By applying three different in vivo models of angiogenesis (malignant keratinocyte transplantation, Matrigel plug and aortic ring assays) to Adamts12(-/-) mice, we provide evidence for a protective effect of this host enzyme toward angiogenesis and cancer progression.
  • In the absence of Adamts-12, both the angiogenic response and tumor invasion into host tissue were increased.
  • Complementing results were obtained by using medium conditioned by cells overexpressing human ADAMTS-12, which inhibited vessel outgrowth in the aortic ring assay.
  • This angioinhibitory effect of ADAMTS-12 was independent of its enzymatic activity as a mutated inactive form of the enzyme was similarly efficient in inhibiting endothelial cell sprouting in the aortic ring assay than the wild-type form.
  • Altogether, our results show that ADAMTS-12 displays antiangiogenic properties and protect the host toward tumor progression.

  • BACKGROUND: Cystic tumors of ovary, whether benign, borderline, or malignant may be associated with mural nodule of various types, including sarcomas, sarcoma-like mural nodules (SLMN), and foci of anaplastic carcinoma.
  • Cases of serous borderline ovarian tumor with mural nodules of mixed type are very rare.
  • Adhesiolysis and de-bulking surgery were performed including bilateral pelvic, para-aortic lymphadenectomy, appendectomy and omentectomy.
  • Left ureter was found to be dilated because of the infiltration of distal part by the tumor, so distal ureteral resection and neoureterocystostomy were performed.
  • Final pathology revealed borderline serous ovarian tumor with mural nodules which were consisted of SLMNs, multiple and sharply demarcated from the adjacent tumor, and sarcomatous nodules showing infiltrative appearance in metastatic regions.

  • [Title] Assessment of tumor blood flow in breast tumors with T1-dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging: impact of dose reduction and the use of a prebolus technique on diagnostic efficacy.
  • PURPOSE: To prospectively evaluate whether dose reduction and the application of a prebolus technique can effectively alleviate signal saturation effects in T1 dynamic contrast enhanced (T1-DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data in breast tumors and lead to increased diagnostic efficacy of the regional tumor blood flow (TBF) values obtained with deconvolution of T1-DCE MRI data.
  • In the slice where the tumor enhanced maximally, a prebolus protocol was applied.
  • From the aortic prebolus curve an arterial input function (AIF) was reconstructed by time-shifting and adding the prebolus data.
  • The relative enhancement time course from the tumor region of interest was deconvolved with the reconstructed AIF to generate the impulse response function, the maximum of which yielded the TBF.
  • RESULTS: Reducing the contrast dose by a factor of 2 led to an increase in diagnostic contrast for the TBF values of malignant and benign tumors by a factor of slightly more than 2.
  • CONCLUSION: Using a prebolus approach provides an estimate of the unsaturated AIF, while reduction of the high-dose bolus minimizes possible saturation effects in the tumor time course.

Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI). Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In this study we investigated the possible correlation of increased MUC18 expression with the malignant progression of prostate cancer in the TRAMP model.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used immunohistochemistry, Western blot and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction analyses to determine MUC18 expression in the prostate gland of 178 to 282-day-old TRAMP positive males with a prostate tumor size of 0.4 to 12.7 gm.
  • All mice bearing primary prostate tumors had prostate cancer metastatic to the peri-aortic lymph nodes and some had it to other organs (liver, lung, kidney, testes, seminal vesicles and abdominal cavity).
  • CONCLUSIONS: MUC18 expression is up-regulated in the TRAMP model and it correlates with the malignant progression of mouse prostate adenocarcinoma in this transgenic model.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Ovarian Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Although obviously malignant, a majority of the cells expressed well-differentiated cilia with terminal bar formation.
  • The tumor was confined to the ovaries without evidence of metastatic spread.
  • Although morphologically resembling an endometrioid-type neoplasm, immunohistochemical and molecular studies were more consistent with a serous phenotype, especially in light of its apparent origination from a serous adenofibroma.
  • We agree with previous observations suggesting that although the neoplasm seems morphologically worrisome, it may actually portend a more benign clinical course.

  • Of the 35 patients with a recurrent or contaminated tumor, 16 (45.7%) suffered at least one complication; by contrast, complications arose in 31 (31.3%) of the 99 patients who had had no previous treatment and who underwent the whole of their treatment in the same center (P = 0.125).
  • Re-operations were mostly due to tumor recurrences, but also to hardware failures, wound dehiscence, hematomas and aortic dissection.
  • En bloc resection is able to improve the prognosis of aggressive benign and low-grade malignant tumors in the spine; however, complications are not rare and possibly fatal.

  • RESULTS: Of the 84 subjects, there were seven malignant paragangliomas (8%).
  • Age was found to be significantly different between the benign and malignant subgroups, with an average age of 54 ± 16 and 40 ± 12 years, respectively (P = 0.02).
  • Pain was a presenting complaint in five patients with benign disease (6%), and five of the seven malignant patients (71%) presented with pain, showing a significant association between pain and disease type (P < 0.0001).
  • The odds ratio for a patient with pain having a malignant tumor was 36 (95% CI: 5.5-234).
  • Enlarging neck mass was noted in all cases of malignant disease, but only in 31 percent of cases of benign disease (P < 0.0001).
  • In a secondary analysis of carotid body tumors alone, enlarging neck mass was not found to be significant between benign and malignant disease (P = 0.14).
  • However, pain continued to be significantly different, with 67 percent of malignant lesions demonstrating pain, compared with only 11 percent of benign lesions (P = 0.01).

  • In human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMCs) incubated at 3% O(2), proliferation and progression through the G1/S interphase are enhanced.
  • In aorta and mesenteric artery from rats exposed to hypoxia (10% O(2), 48 h), both proliferation and apoptosis are increased, as are medial nuclear density and smooth muscle cell content.
  • Although nuclear levels of hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha (HIF-1alpha) are increased to a similar extent in HASMCs incubated at 1 and 3% O(2), expression of tumor protein p53, its transcriptional target p21, as well as their regulatory factors and downstream effectors, are differentially affected under these two conditions, suggesting that the bidirectional effects of hypoxia are mediated by this pathway.
  • This confers the ability to remodel the vasculature in response to changing tissue metabolic needs while avoiding the accumulation of mutations that may lead to malignant transformation or the formation of abnormal vascular structures.

  • The secreted protein, acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) a component of the ECM, impairs the proliferation of different cell types and modulates tumor cell aggressive features.
  • This apparent paradox might result either from the biochemical properties of the different SPARC sources or from differential responses of malignant and stromal cells to SPARC.
  • All 5 SPARC species were effective in inhibiting bovine aortic endothelial cell proliferation, adhesion and migration.
  • Importantly, downregulation of SPARC levels in melanoma cells using either an antisense RNA or a shRNA against SPARC sensitized them to hMel-SPARC addition in proliferation and migration assays, suggesting that malignant cells developed a SPARC-resistance mechanism.
  • Thus, malignant cells expressing or not expressing SPARC developed alternative mechanisms that, in contrary to stromal cells, rendered them SPARC-insensitive.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The introduction of imatinib, an orally administered inhibitor of the KIT receptor tyrosine kinase, is prompting revision of the management algorithms that have traditionally guided the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).
  • Historically, patients with GISTs have had substantial rates of relapse as well as limited long-term survival even after complete surgical resection of a primary tumor.
  • Imatinib has been shown to induce durable tumor responses in more than half of the patients with malignant metastatic or unresectable GISTs and to halt disease progression in an additional third.

  • A radical excision of the lesion with pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy was performed.
  • Tumor cells showed immunoreactivity for pancytokeratin, cytokeratin (CK), CD 10, epithelial membrane antigen, vimentin, and calretinin; indeed they were negative for carcinoembryonic antigen, CK 20, estrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor.
  • In spite of the aggressive biological behavior attributed in literature to mesonephric carcinomas, which is probably due to the complex differential diagnosis with other müllerian tumors, the favorable course of our patient further supports the hypothesis that malignant mesonephric carcinomas may not behave aggressively and that radical surgery alone may be curative.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In this article, we describe a newly recognized neoplasm originating from struma ovarii that we interpret as follicular carcinoma with a high degree of differentiation.
  • Our index patient with highly differentiated follicular carcinoma (HDFCO) developed peritoneal dissemination and para-aortic lymph node metastases 26 years after excision of ovarian struma.
  • Vascular invasion was not identified in any of the cases; however, the primary neoplasm extended to the surface of the ovary in 2 cases with peritoneal involvement.
  • Because of its harmless histological appearance, this form of follicular carcinoma characteristically cannot be diagnosed until the neoplasm spreads beyond the ovary, thus, showing evidence of aggressive behavior.
  • The corollary of this observation is that cases having the histological appearance of ordinary struma ovarii can rarely behave in a malignant fashion.
  • The treatment of choice for patients with HDFCO is local resection of the extraovarian tumor with subsequent thyroidectomy followed by radioactive iodine ablation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To date, no antiangiogenic activity has been demonstrated for licochalcone A (LicA), a major phenolic constituent of Glycyrrhiza inflata, although it shows significant antitumor activity in human malignant cell lines.
  • LicA significantly inhibited proliferation (20 microM), migration (5-20 microM), and tube formation (10-20 microM) of human umbilical vascular endothelial cells (HUVECs) as well as microvessel growth from rat aortic rings (10-20 microM).
  • Inhibition of tumor growth may be attributed, at least in part, to decreased angiogenesis in LicA-treated mice.
  • These findings emphasize the potential use of LicA against tumor development and progression in which angiogenesis is stimulated.

  • Endothelial cell (EC) migration is an integral part of angiogenesis and a prerequisite for malignant tumor growth.
  • Recent studies suggest that amphiphilic compounds can regulate migration of bovine aortic ECs by altering the physical properties of the cell membrane lipid bilayers.
  • To investigate this notion, we studied the effects of lysophospholipids that inhibit migration of bovine aortic ECs and decrease cell membrane microviscosity, and of other amphiphiles that decrease membrane microviscosity (Triton X-100, octyl-beta-glucoside, arachidonic acid, docosahexaenoic acid, ETYA, capsaicin) on the migration of porcine aortic ECs.
