  • [Title] [Analysis of serum biomarkers of ovarian epithelial cancers based on 2-DE DIGE and MALDI TOF/TOF].
  • OBJECTIVE: To find new serum tumor markers for ovarian epithelial cancers by 2-DE DIGE and MALDI-TOF/TOF proteomic methods, in order to improve the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.
  • METHODS: Serum samples from 103 cases of ovarian epithelial cancers, 60 cases of healthy women, 63 cases of benign ovarian tumors and 63 cases of benign pelvic diseases were collected.
  • Sera of 20 cases of ovarian epithelial cancers (A), 20 cases of ovarian benign tumors (B), 20 cases of pelvic benign diseases (C) and 20 cases of health control (D) were matched by age and pooled, respectively.
  • After depletion of high abundance serum albumin and IgG, the samples were assayed by 2-DE DIGE.
  • 2) Western blot and ELISA proved that there were significant differences in Hp and Tf between ovarian epithelial cancers and normal controls (P = 0.000), between ovarian epithelial cancers and ovarian benign tumors (P = 0.000), between ovarian epithelial cancers and benign pelvic disease sera (P = 0.000).
  • 3) CA125 + Hp + Tf combined detection of ovarian cancer had higher sensitivity and specificity than CA125, Hp or Tf detection alone.
  • CONCLUSION: Hp and Tf are differently expressed in the sera of patients with ovarian epitheliual cancers.
  • They can be used as serum biomarkers for ovarian epithelial cancers.
  • CA125 + Hp + Tf combined detection may improve the sensitivity and specificity of diagnosis of ovarian epithelial cancers.

  • Arsenic alone induced some urogenital system tumors, including mostly benign tumors of the ovary and uterus, and adrenal adenoma.
  • Diethylstilbestrol alone induced some tumors (primarily cervical) but when given after in utero arsenic, it greatly enhanced urogenital tumor incidence, multiplicity, and progression.
  • For instance, compared with the incidence of urogenital malignancies in the control (0%), arsenic alone (9%), and diethylstilbestrol alone (21%) groups, arsenic plus diethylstilbestrol acted synergistically, inducing a 48% incidence of malignant urogenital tumors.
  • Of the urogenital tumors induced by arsenic plus diethylstilbestrol, 80% were malignant, and 55% were multiple site.
  • Arsenic plus diethylstilbestrol increased ovarian, uterine, and vaginal tumors, and urinary bladder proliferative lesions, including three transitional cell carcinomas.
  • Tamoxifen alone did not increase urogenital tumors or affect arsenic-induced neoplasia but did increase arsenic-induced uroepithelial proliferative lesions.

  • [Title] Sclerosing stromal tumor of the ovary.
  • Sclerosing stromal tumors are benign ovarian neoplasms of the sex cord stromal category which occur predominantly in the second and third decades of life.
  • Herein, we report a 26-year-old woman who developed a sclerosing stromal tumor of the ovary with irregular menses but normal hormonal status.
  • She was suspected to have a malignant tumor and underwent bilateral oophorectomy.
  • Other ovarian stromal tumors include fibroma and thecoma which tend to occur in the fifth and sixth decades of life.
  • It is, therefore, necessary to keep in mind the possibility of a sclerosing stromal tumor in a young woman.

  • [Title] Neuronal transcription factor Brn-3a(l) is over expressed in high-grade ovarian carcinomas and tumor cells from ascites of patients with advanced-stage ovarian cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: In view of the recent association of Brn-3 transcription factors with neuroblastomas, cervical, breast, and prostate cancers we examined the expression of Brn-3a(l) in normal ovaries and in different histological grades of ovarian tumors.
  • The expression of Brn-3a(l) was also evaluated in normal ovarian and cancer cell lines and tumor cells isolated from the ascites of advanced-stage ovarian cancer patients.
  • METHODS: Normal ovaries, benign, borderline, grades 1, 2 and 3 ovarian tumors were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for Brn-3a(l) expression.
  • A total of 46 ovarian specimens were included in the study.
  • Immunofluorescence was used to investigate the expression of Brn-3a in normal ovarian and cancer cell lines.
  • Brn-3a(l) expression was also evaluated by Western blot in tumor cells isolated from ascites of advanced-stage ovarian cancer patients and also in ovarian cancer cell lines.
  • RESULTS: Nearly 12% of normal and benign ovarian tissues and 57% of borderline ovarian tumors were positive for epithelial Brn-3a(l) expression.
  • Stromal staining was higher and it constituted 40% of normal non-cancerous ovaries compared to 50 and 86% in benign and borderline tumors.
  • On the other hand, 85-100% of grades 1, 2 & 3 ovarian tumors demonstrated nuclear and cytoplasmic Brn-3a(l) staining in the epithelium.
  • Stromal staining in grades1, 2 and 3 tumors constituted 71-88% of total staining.
  • Overall, immunoreactive Brn-3a was present in all grades of ovarian tumors.
  • The extent of epithelial and stromal Brn-3a staining was significantly different between the normal and histological grades of tumors (epithelial-chi2 = 41.01, df = 20, P = 0.004, stromal-chi2 = 24.66. df = 15, P = 0.05).
  • The extent of epithelial staining was significantly higher in grades 1 and 2 ovarian tumors compared to normal ovaries and benign ovarian tumors (p < 0.05).
  • In parallel, stromal staining was significantly higher in grade 3 tumors compared to normal ovaries (p < 0.05).
  • In addition, cytoplasmic and nuclear Brn-3a expression was evident in ovarian cancer cell lines while no such expression was observed in SV40 antigen immortalized normal ovarian cell lines.
  • CONCLUSION: These data suggest that like other cancers, Brn-3a(l) expression is enhanced in ovarian tumors and its expression is consistent with its known role in inhibiting apoptosis and enhancing tumorigenesis.
  • Specific targeting of Brn-3a may provide a useful strategy for regulating multiple tumor related genes involved with ovarian carcinomas.

  • [Title] Effects of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy on survivin expression in ovarian cancer.
  • In this study, the correlation between the level of survivin expression and degree of apoptosis was investigated in three ovarian cancer lines (two chemoresistant cell lines SKOV-3 and OVCAR-3, as well as one chemosensitive cell line OV2008) treated with 5 microg/ml of cisdiamminedichloroplatinum (cisplatin, CDDP) for 24 h, 2 Gy of (60)Co irradiation, or 5 microg/ml CDDP for 3 h plus 2 Gy of (60)Co, respectively.
  • We also evaluated the survivin mRNA abundance in patients with advanced ovarian cancers during CDDP treatment.
  • In the ovarian cancer cell lines, survivin mRNA abundance and protein contents were significantly increased after the treatments while the apoptotic rates did not change in SKOV-3 and OVCAR-3.
  • Survivin mRNA was not detectable in normal ovarian tissues and benign ovarian tumors.
  • However, it was observed in the resected tumor specimens from 20 patients with advanced ovarian cancer.
  • These results suggested that survivin may play an important role in the resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy in ovarian cancer cell lines and in the progression of ovarian tumors.
  • Survivin may also provide a pivotal prognostic implication for epithelial ovarian carcinomas.

  • [Title] Validation and characterization of human kallikrein 11 as a serum marker for diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: The serum tumor marker CA 125 is elevated in most clinically advanced ovarian carcinomas, and currently, one of the most promising early detection strategies for ovarian cancer uses CA 125 level in conjunction with imaging.
  • However, CA 125 is elevated in only 50% of early-stage ovarian cancer and is often elevated in women with benign ovarian tumors and other gynecologic diseases.
  • The human kallikrein 11 (hK11) marker has been reported to have favorable predictive value for ovarian cancer, although, by itself, it may be inferior to CA 125.
  • CA 125, hK11, and the composite marker were evaluated for their performance in identifying ovarian cancer and for temporal stability.
  • RESULTS: hK11 significantly distinguished ovarian cancer cases from healthy controls and is less sensitive to benign ovarian disease than is CA 125.
  • CONCLUSION: We conclude that hK11 is a valuable new biomarker for ovarian cancer and its temporal stability implies that it may do even better when used in a longitudinal screening program for early detection.

  • [Title] A critical analysis of Doppler velocimetry in the differential diagnosis of malignant and benign ovarian masses.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the intratumoral reliability of color Doppler parameters and the contribution of Doppler sonography to the gray-scale differential diagnosis of ovarian masses.
  • METHODS: An observational study was performed including 67 patients, 15 (22.4%) with malignant ovarian neoplasm and 52 (77.6%) with benign ovarian diseases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Gynecologists must be careful in interpreting results from Doppler evaluation of ovarian masses because PSV and EDV present poor intratumoral reliability.
  • The lower RI value, evaluated in at least two distinct sites of the tumor, was able to improve the performance of gray-scale ultrasound in differential diagnosis of ovarian masses.

  • [Title] Expression of octamer-4 in serous and mucinous ovarian carcinoma.
  • AIMS: To assess the expression of Oct4 in epithelial ovarian tumours.
  • METHODS: Expression of Oct4 was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in 460 cases of various epithelial ovarian lesions as well as 35 cases of normal fallopian tube epithelium.
  • RESULTS: Oct4 expression was significantly increased from normal epithelium (both ovarian epithelium and fallopian tube epithelium) to benign and borderline cystadenoma to carcinoma in the serous lesion subgroup.
  • CONCLUSION: Results suggest that Oct4 expression may contribute to the initiation, promotion and progression of serous ovarian carcinoma; it might be a useful biomarker for the diagnosis and outcome prediction of serous ovarian carcinoma.

  • [Title] Expression of CD133-1 and CD133-2 in ovarian cancer.
  • Cancer stem cells have been isolated from several solid tumors including prostate, colon, liver, breast, and ovarian cancer.
  • The aims of this study were to investigate the expression of the CD133-1 and CD133-2 epitopes in primary ovarian tumors and to biologically characterize CD133(+) ovarian cancer cells, also according to clinicopathologic parameters.
  • Tissue specimens were obtained at primary surgery from 41 ovarian carcinomas; eight normal ovaries and five benign ovarian tumors were also collected.
  • The percentages of CD133-1- and CD133-2-expressing cells were significantly lower in normal ovaries/benign tumors with respect to those in ovarian carcinoma.
  • Both the percentages of CD133-1- and CD133-2-expressing cells were significantly lower in omental metastases than in primary ovarian cancer (P = 0.009 and 0.007 for CD133-1- and CD133-2-expressing cells, respectively).
  • CD133-1 and CD133-2 may be useful in order to select and enrich the population of CD133(+) ovarian tumor cells, which are characterized by a higher clonogenic efficiency and proliferative potential.

  • [Title] A retrospective study of ovarian tumours and tumour-like lesions.
  • Objective of the study was to determine the nature of various ovarian lesions and to ascertain the frequency and distribution of the various non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions.
  • METHODS: The study was a retrospective review of all cases of ovarian cancer, benign ovarian neoplasm and functional ovarian cysts received during Jan-Dec 2008 at Chughtai's Lahore Laboratory.
  • Among the neoplastic tumours 78.70% were benign and 21.29% were malignant.
  • Benign serous cysts were the commonest benign tumour followed by mature cystic teratoma and mucinous cyst.
  • Serous cystadenocarcinoma was the commonest malignant tumour followed closely by endometrioid carcinoma and granulosa cell tumour.
  • Krukenberg tumour, tumour metastatic to ovaries and non-Hodgkins lymphoma was also diagnosed during this period.
  • CONCLUSION: The morphologic diversity of ovarian masses poses many challenges.
  • A specific diagnosis can usually be made by evaluating routinely stained slides but sometimes immunohistochemistry is required in difficult cases.

  • [Title] [Expression of phosphorylated protein kinase B and PTEN protein in ovarian epithelial cancer].
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the expression of phosphorylated protein kinase B (pAKT) and PTEN protein in ovarian epithelial cancer and to investigate the correlations between their expression and prognosis of ovarian epithelial cancers.
  • METHODS: Expression of pAKT and PTEN in 12 normal ovarian tissues, 20 benign tumors, 12 borderline tumors and 80 cases of ovarian epithelial cancers were detected by immunohistochemical method, and their correlations were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: The positive expression of pAKT in normal ovarian and benign tumor tissues were significantly lower than that in ovarian epithelial cancers (8%, 10% vs 55%; P < 0.01), respectively.
  • However, loss of PTEN expression in ovarian epithelial cancers was significantly higher than that in normal ovarian and benign tumor tissues, and the positive rate of PTEN expression were respectively, 45%, 100%, and 80% (P < 0.01).
  • In ovarian cancers, a negative correlation between expression of pAKT and PTEN was observed (r = -0.444, P < 0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The overexpression of pAKT and absence of PTEN are related to ovarian carcinogenesis and development.
  • Loss of PTEN expression is the independent risk factor of poor prognosis in patients with ovarian epithelial cancers.

  • [Title] Characterization of the 3p12.3-pcen region associated with tumor suppression in a novel ovarian cancer cell line model genetically modified by chromosome 3 fragment transfer.
  • The genetic analysis of nontumorigenic radiation hybrids generated by transfer of chromosome 3 fragments into the tumorigenic OV-90 ovarian cancer cell line identified the 3p12.3-pcen region as a candidate tumor suppressor gene (TSG) locus.
  • The expression of all but one (VGLL3) of these genes was also detected in the parental OV-90 cell line.
  • Mutations were not identified in a comparative sequence analysis of the predicted protein coding regions of these candidates in OV-90 and donor normal chromosome 3 contig.
  • Interestingly, underexpression of VGLL3 and ZNF654 were observed in malignant ovarian tumor samples as compared with primary cultures of normal ovarian surface epithelial cells or benign ovarian tumors, and this occurred regardless of allelic content of 3p12.3-pcen.
  • The results taken together suggest that dysregulation of VGLL3 and/or ZNF654 expression may have affected pathways important in ovarian tumorigenesis which was offset by the transfer of chromosome 3 fragments in OV-90, a cell line hemizygous for 3p.

  • The aim of the present study is to investigate the expression of a novel estrogen receptor, G protein-coupled receptor 30 (GPR30) and its correlation with matrix metalloproteinases-9 (MMP-9) in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC).
  • Ovary tissues were obtained from 39 female patients, including 30 cases of EOC and 9 cases of benign ovarian tumor.
  • Four normal ovary tissues were used as control.
  • The results showed that GPR30 overexpression rate in EOC cases was significantly higher than those in benign ovarian tumor and normal ovary cases.
  • Whereas MMP-9 overexpression rate in EOC cases was significantly higher than that in normal ovary cases, without any difference to that in benign ovarian tumor cases.
  • These results suggest that GPR30 may be involved in the invasion and metastasis of EOC, being a potential index of EOC early diagnosis and malignancy grade prediction.

  • [Title] Role of laparoscopy in the diagnosis and treatment of adnexal masses.
  • BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy has been accepted for years as a management of benign ovarian tumors.
  • The aim of this study was to estimate the feasibility and safety of laparoscopy in diagnosis and management of adnexal masses.
  • METHODS: A total of 2083 patients with benign adnexal mass were treated by laparoscopy at Peking Union Medical College Hospital from January 2000 to December 2003.
  • The rates of unexpected intracystic vegetation and low malignant potential (LMP) tumor or malignancy were investigated.
  • The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of laparoscopic diagnosis for LMP or ovarian malignancies were calculated.
  • RESULTS: Of the 2083 patients, 16 had LMP or invasive tumors (0.77%), among which 14 were diagnosed histologically intraoperatively and 2 postoperatively.
  • Their frozen sections showed benign tumors in 41 (74.5%), LMP tumors in 8 (14.5%), and focal invasive ovarian cancers (stage Ic) in 6 (10.9%).
  • The final pathological diagnosis were benign tumors in 41 (74.5%), LMP tumors 7 (12.7%), and focal invasive ovarian cancers (stage Ic) in 7 (12.7%).
  • Laparoscopy achieved a sensitivity of 87.5%, specificity of 98%, positive predictive value of 25.5%, and negative predictive value of 99.9% in the diagnosis of ovarian malignancies.
  • 2067 cases with benign adnexal masses underwent laparoscopy successfully.
  • Of the 16 patients with LMP or invasive ovarian cancer, seven underwent laparoscopic surgery including immediate staging laparoscopy in 3.
  • Among them, 1 developed a recurrent LMP tumor in the contralateral ovary 36 months after laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy, and received subsequent laparoscopic cystectomy and pelvic lymph node sampling; the others had no evidence of recurrent tumor during the follow-up.
  • CONCLUSION: Laparoscopy is feasible for diagnosis of adnexal masses, and the surgery is safe for patients with benign ovarian tumors.

  • [Title] Effects of histologic type on levels of macrophage colony-stimulating factor in liquid contents of benign ovarian tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Normal ovarian tissue is rich in cytokines.
  • Cytokines are important in the physiology of ovarian function.
  • Most of the same cytokines that are found in normal ovarian tissue are also found in association with benign and malignant tumors in contrast to their functions in normal tissues.
  • Thus, we measured macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) levels in the liquid contents of benign ovarian tumors--serous cystadenoma, mucinous cystadenoma, and mature cystic teratoma--and investigated whether M-CSF levels were associated with the histologic type of the ovarian tumors.
  • METHODS: We enrolled 65 patients, 52 with benign ovarian tumor and 13 in the early postmenopausal period with symptoms of a menopausal disorder.
  • Among the 52 patients with benign ovarian tumor, 16 had serous cystadenoma, 21 had mucinous cystadenoma, and 15 had mature cystic teratoma.
  • Immediately after surgery, the liquid content was drawn from the ovarian tumor, then centrifuged, and the separated supernatant was stored at -30 degrees C.
  • The serum M-CSF levels were 308 to 499 U/mL in patients with benign ovarian tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Elevation of levels of M-CSF varies according to histologic type in benign ovarian tumors.

  • METHODS: The expression levels of PI3K p85 subunit proteins and mRNA were evaluated by western blot and RT-PCR in normal ovarian tissue (G1), ovarian benign tumor tissue (G2), ovarian borderline tumor tissue (G3) and ovarian cancer tissue (G4), and the relevant clinical pathological parameters were analyzed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: PI3K p85 subunit is highly expressed and positively correlated with ovarian cancer.
  • Different expression levels exist in tissues of late ovarian cancer, earlier ovarian cancer, borderline tumor, benign ovarian tumor and normal ovarian tissue.
  • The changes in PI3K p85 subunit are correlated with tumor differentiation degree, but not pathologic typing.
  • LY294002 combined with cisplatin can significantly enhance the killing efficiency in ovarian cancer cells.

  • [Title] Expression and correlation of Lewis y antigen and integrins α5 and β1 in ovarian serous and mucinous carcinoma.
  • INTRODUCTION: This study investigates the expression and the clinical significance of Lewis y and integrins α5 and β1 in serous and mucinous ovarian tumors and then evaluates the association between them.
  • METHODS: Lewis y and integrin α5 and β1 expression are detected on tissues from malignant, borderline, and benign ovarian serous and mucinous tumors and normal tissues.
  • RESULTS: Lewis y was mainly expressed in ovarian serous and mucinous cancers (88.33%); its positive rate was obviously higher than rates in the borderline (60.00%, P < 0.05) and benign ovarian tumors (35.00%, P < 0.01) and normal ovarian tissues (0, P < 0.01) and was not associated with clinicopathological characteristics.
  • Integrins α5 (85.00%) and β1 (81.67%) were also mainly expressed in ovarian serous and mucinous cancers; their positive rates were all obviously higher than those in benign ovarian tumors (60.00% and 55.00%, respectively; all P < 0.05) and normal tissues (40.00% and 30.00%, respectively; all P < 0.01).
  • The expression intensity of Lewis y and integrins α5 and β1 was significant with clinical stage and differentiation degree (all P < 0.05) in ovarian cancer; positive significant correlation between Lewis y antigen and integrins α5 and β1 was observed in serous and mucinous ovarian cancer tissues.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A close correlation between Lewis y, integrins α5 and β1, and ovarian cancer was observed.
  • Lewis y can influence the biological behavior of a tumor cell as an important composition of integrins α5 and β1 by some signal pathway, such as promoting cell adhesion and migration, and this study provides theoretical evidence of ovarian cancer biological treatment.

  • [Title] Physiologic FDG uptake in the ovary together with an abdominal wall leiomyoma mimicking metastasizing ovarian cancer on PET/CT imaging.
  • F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET-CT is increasingly used in the management of patients with ovarian cancer.
  • However, there is a considerable overlap in the imaging features of malignant and benign ovarian lesions because physiological FDG-uptake in the ovaries can occur, depending on the menstrual cycle in premenopausal women.We present a case of FDG uptake in the ovary co-occurring with an intensely FDG active tumor of the abdominal wall in a 44-year-old woman.
  • PET-CT findings, together with medical history, raised the suspicion for a metastasizing ovarian cancer.
  • However, histologic examination demonstrated benign findings, namely abdominal wall leiomyoma and an ovarian follicular cyst.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Epigenetic changes within the promoter region of the HLA-G gene in ovarian tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Previous findings have suggested that epigenetic-mediated HLA-G expression in tumor cells may be associated with resistance to host immunosurveillance.
  • To explore the potential role of DNA methylation on HLA-G expression in ovarian cancer, we correlated differences in HLA-G expression with methylation changes within the HLA-G regulatory region in an ovarian cancer cell line treated with 5-aza-deoxycytidine (5-aza-dC) and in malignant and benign ovarian tumor samples and ovarian surface epithelial cells (OSE) isolated from patients with normal ovaries.
  • RESULTS: A region containing an intact hypoxia response element (HRE) remained completely methylated in the cell line after treatment with 5-aza-dC and was completely methylated in all of the ovarian tumor (malignant and benign) samples examined, but only variably methylated in normal OSE samples.
  • HLA-G expression was significantly increased in the 5-aza-dC treated cell line but no significant difference was detected between the tumor and OSE samples examined.
  • CONCLUSION: Since HRE is the binding site of a known repressor of HLA-G expression (HIF-1), we hypothesize that methylation of the region surrounding the HRE may help maintain the potential for expression of HLA-G in ovarian tumors.
  • The fact that no correlation exists between methylation and HLA-G gene expression between ovarian tumor samples and OSE, suggests that changes in methylation may be necessary but not sufficient for HLA-G expression in ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Image-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology of ovarian tumors: An assessment of diagnostic efficacy.
  • BACKGROUND: Image-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of ovarian lumps is being increasingly used for the successful diagnosis of ovarian tumors, although borderline cases may be difficult to diagnose by this method.
  • AIM: To demonstrate the efficacy of image-guided FNAC in diagnosing ovarian tumors (benign and malignant) and to evaluate the usefulness of cytology as a mode of easy and rapid diagnosis of ovarian lumps.
  • Diagnosis was established by FNAC performed under image guidance (ultrasonography/computed tomography).
  • The cytological diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination.
  • RESULTS: Cytological diagnosis was rendered on all the 42 ovarian lesions, with a correct diagnosis in 34 cases, resulting in a diagnostic accuracy of 80.9%.
  • Most of the cases with discordant diagnoses were surface epithelial tumors of low malignant potential and required histopathological examination for a final diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Image-guided FNAC is an inexpensive, rapid and fairly accurate procedure for the diagnosis of ovarian lesions.
  • It provides a safe alternative to the more expensive, time consuming and cumbersome surgical route to diagnosis.

  • We investigated whether this is the case for ovarian neoplasms.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Calprotectin was analyzed with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in EDTA-plasma collected prior to surgery from women with ovarian carcinomas (n = 89), borderline ovarian tumors (BOT, n = 39), and benign ovarian tumors (n = 71).
  • RESULTS: Median plasma calprotectin concentration was elevated in ovarian carcinoma, compared with controls, as well as compared with BOT (both P < .001).
  • A positive correlation was found between CA 125 and calprotectin concentrations in ovarian carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Plasma calprotectin is elevated in invasive ovarian cancer, but when used as a tumor marker, it is inferior to CA 125.

  • The present article describes the series of incident primary ovarian tumors in the Life Span Study (LSS) cohort of the Radiation Effects Research Foundation, with particular emphasis on case ascertainment and characterization of histological features of the tumors.
  • We identified 723 ovarian tumors (260 malignant, 463 benign) in 648 individuals of about 70,000 female LSS subjects; 71 cases had more than one ovarian tumor.
  • We histologically confirmed 601 tumors (182 malignant, 419 benign tumors).
  • The most frequent histological type was common epithelial tumor (90.7% for malignant and 59.7% for benign tumors).
  • The distributions of ovarian tumors by histological type were similar to those from other studies.
  • Among malignancies, the frequency of common epithelial types relative to other tumor types increased with radiation dose (p = 0.02).
  • Among benign tumors, the relative frequency of sex-cord stromal tumors increased with radiation dose (p = 0.04).
  • Within tumor types, there was no consistent pattern of survival by radiation dose.
  • Variations in histological types of ovarian tumors in response to radiation dose, suggested by the case series data need to be followed up by population-based incidence analysis.

  • [Title] Giant mature ovarian cystic teratoma including more than 300 teeth.
  • Preoperative diagnosis of malignant tumors arising from mature cystic teratoma (MCT) of the ovary is not easy; malignant tumors are mostly diagnosed only postoperatively.
  • Tumor size, serum tumor markers, and patient age have been proposed as risk factors for malignancy.
  • This article reports a rare case of a giant, benign MCT of the ovary in a young woman (25 years old).
  • It had a very large size (320 x 270 x 185 mm, 10 kg), a great number of teeth (> 300), and preoperative serum level of tumor markers were elevated (CA125, 875 U/mL(-1); CA19-9, 2087 U/mL(-1); CEA, 5.1 ng/mL(-1); AFP, 23.3 ng/mL(-1); SCC, 20.7 ng/mL(-1)).
  • Based on clinical and laboratory data, tumor markers and tumor size when used alone or in combination do not appear to be useful in making a differential diagnosis between MCT and squamous cell carcinoma arising from MCT.

  • [Title] [Expression of topoisomerase III alpha in epithelial ovarian tumors of different types and relation between the expression of topoisomerase III alpha and the clinical pathology of tumor].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression status of topoisomerase IIIa in epithelial ovarian tumor and the relationship between the expression status of topoisomerase IIIa and pathological type and clinical stage of epithelial ovarian carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemistry was carried out in the samples of ovarian tumor obtained during operation from 169 patients, aged 28 approximately 59, 18 cases with serous cystadenoma, 30 cases with serous borderline cystadenoma, 37 serous cystadenocarcinoma, 10 cases with mucous cystadenoma, 20 mucous borderline cystadenoma, 26 mucous cystadenocarcinoma, 19 cases with endometrial carcinoma of ovary, and 9 cases with clear cell carcinoma.
  • RESULTS: The expression rate of topoisomerase IIIa was 17.9% in the benign ovarian tumors, 74.0% in the borderline cystadenoma, and 42.7% in the malignant tumors with statistical significance among them (chi(2) = 24.657, P < 0.001).
  • There was no correlation between the expression of topoisomerase IIIa and the clinical stage or pathological grade of the tumors (P = 0.903 and P = 0.844).
  • CONCLUSION: Topoisomerase IIIa is highly expressed in epithelial ovarian carcinoma, and its expression level is correlated with the character and type of tumor tissues.

  • [Title] Inclusion of CA-125 does not improve mathematical models developed to distinguish between benign and malignant adnexal tumors.
  • PURPOSE: To test the value of serum CA-125 measurements alone or as part of a multimodal strategy to distinguish between malignant and benign ovarian tumors before surgery based on a large prospective multicenter study (International Ovarian Tumor Analysis).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with at least one persistent ovarian mass preoperatively underwent transvaginal ultrasonography using gray scale imaging to assess tumor morphology and color Doppler imaging to obtain indices of blood flow.
  • RESULTS: Data from 809 patients recruited from nine centers were included in the analysis; 567 patients (70%) had benign tumors and 242 (30%) had malignant tumors-of these 152 were primary invasive (62.8%), 52 were borderline malignant (21.5%), and 38 were metastatic (15.7%).
  • Results were very similar when the models were prospectively tested on a group of 345 new patients with adnexal masses of whom 126 had malignant tumors (37%).
  • CONCLUSION: Adding information on CA-125 to clinical information and ultrasound information does not improve discrimination of mathematical models between benign and malignant adnexal masses.

  • A case of 36-year-old nonmarried virgin woman presenting a giant ovarian serous cyst adenoma weighing 9.5 kg is reported here.
  • Ovarian neoplasms may be divided by origin cell type into three main groups: epithelial, stromal and germ cell.
  • Taken as a group, the epithelial tumors are by far the most common type.
  • The single most common benign ovarian neoplasm is the benign cystic teratoma; however, according to some studies it is serous cyst adenoma.
  • At laparotomy, a giant, totally cystic, vascularized and smooth mass attached to the right ovary was encountered, lying between the symphysis and the xiphoid.
  • This is the largest ovarian cyst that ever reported from our hospital and one of the largest among the reported cases in the literature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Expression of mesothelin mRNA and protein in ovarian carcinomas].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression of mesothelin (MESO) mRNA and protein and its significance in ovarian carcinomas.
  • METHODS: Semi-quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry were used to detect the expression level of MESO mRNA and protein, respectively, in 124 samples of ovarian tumor and normal tissues, including 84 epithelial ovarian carcinomas, 12 borderline ovarian tumors, 16 benign ovarian tumors and 12 normal ovarian tissues.
  • RESULTS: The expression of MESO mRNA and protein in epithelial ovarian carcinomas (1.4005 +/- 0.4646, 2.7857 +/- 2.2712) and borderline ovarian tumors (1.0650 +/- 0.3100, 2.9167 +/- 2.391) were significantly higher than that in benign ovarian tumors (0.6463 +/- 0.2419, 1.2500 +/- 1.6125) and normal ovarian tissues (0.6439 +/- 0.2729, 0.9167 +/- 1.2401) (P < 0.05), and also significantly higher in serous cystadenocarcinoma (1.5255 +/- 0.4151, 3.3036 +/- 2.6141) and endometrioid carcinoma (1.5250 +/- 0.5419, 3.0000 +/- 2.3094) than that in mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (1.0675 +/- 0.3149, 1.0556 +/- 1.9242) (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: The results of this study demonstrated that the expression of MESO mRNA and protein is increased in ovarian carcinomas and borderline ovarian tumors, and MESO may play a role in the adhesion and dissemination of ovarian carcinomas.

  • [Title] Quantitative biochemical analysis of lactate dehydrogenase in human ovarian tissues: correlation with tumor grade.
  • In an attempt to identify glycolytic capacity of normal and neoplastic human ovary, total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity was measured in tissue cytosol originating from 69 patients (18 with benign ovarian tumor, 34 with ovarian carcinoma, six with nonepithelial ovarian malignant tumors, and 11 with tumor metastatic to ovary) and compared to the LDH activity of normal ovarian tissues (n = 19).
  • Median value of total LDH-specific activity expressed as U/mg protein was 0.546 in normal tissues, 0.584 in benign tumors, 1.071 in malignancies metastatic to ovaries, 0.872 in nonepithelial primary ovarian tumors, and 0.818 in primary carcinomas.
  • A significant rise in LDH-specific activity was found in malignant primary and secondary tumors of epithelial and nonepithelial origin, but not in benign neoplasms, compared to the activity in normal tissue.
  • Ovarian carcinomas of serous histologic type did not differ in LDH activity from mucinous tumors.
  • The subgroup of grade 1 tumors did not differ in LDH activity from normal and benign ovarian tissue.
  • Obtained results suggest that direct correlation might exist between ovarian epithelial tumor grade and lactate dehydrogenase activity.

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the risk factors associated to ovarian cancer.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A case-control study was carried out including 31 women with ovarian cancer and 69 patients with benign ovarian tumors corroborated with a histopathological study.
  • The dependent variable was ovarian cancer, and it was assigned a value of 1 if it was present and 0 if it was absent.
  • RESULTS: The malignant tumor of epithelial cells was the most common histological variety and was seen in 22 cases (71%).
  • There were 24 cases (77.4%) in clinical stage I at the time of the diagnosis.
  • Out of the 26 studied variables late menarche (p = 0.02), multiparity (p = 0.02), loss of weight (p = 0.04), solid tumor (p = 0.02), mixed tumor (p = 0.02) and irregularities of the tumor (p = 0.03) were significant in the applied model.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The sociodemographic variables associated to ovarian cancer were: late menarche and multiparity; the clinical significant variable was loss of weight; and the ultrasonographic variables were solid tumor, mixed tumor and irregularities of the tumor.
  • A population screening program is recommended in women who are in reproductive age, and it should include a gynecological ultrasonographic scanning in order to make an opportune diagnosis of this pathology.

  • [Title] [Measurement of serum human epididymis secretory protein 4 combined with CA125 assay in differential diagnosis of endometriosis cyst and ovarian benign and malignant tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the value of human epididymis secretory protein 4(HE4) combined with CA125 assay in differential diagnosis of endometriosis cyst and ovarian malignant tumor.
  • METHODS: The level of HE4 and CA125 were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in the serum specimens of 46 cases in endometriosis cyst group, 36 cases in malignant ovarian tumor group, 60 cases in benign ovarian diseases and 50 women in healthy women group.
  • The normal range were 0-150 pmol/L in HE4 and 0-35 kU/L, which either one was more than the threshold value defined as positive index.
  • The sensitivity of assay was evaluated by receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, the relation and value of HE4 or CA125 alone and combination assay in diagnosis of endometriosis was analyzed by Mann-Whitney U test and correlation analysis. RESULTS:.
  • (1) HE4: the median levels of HE4 were 52.4, 51.0, 50.0 pmol/L in group of endometriosis, normal control and benign ovarian tumor, which didn't show statistical difference.
  • However, HE4 was 507.5 pmol/L in ovarian cancer group, which was significantly higher than those of 3 groups (P<0.05). (2) CA125: there were significant different in median level of CA125 was observed as 743.0 kU/L in ovarian cancer, 84.9 kU/L in endoemtriosis, 15.4 kU/L in benign ovarian disease, and 11.5 kU/L in healthy women (P<0.05). (3) The single assay: when compared with that in endometriosis group, receiver operating characteristic area under the curve (ROC-AUC) were 0.933 in HE4 alone and 0.821 in CA125 alone assay in ovarian cancer group.
  • The specificity was 95% and the sensitivity was 79.6% and 49.0%. (4) The combination assay: when compared with those in endometriosis group, the ROC-AUC was 0.936, the specificity was 95% and the sensitivity was 81.0% in ovarian cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Measurement of HE4 could be used in differential diagnosis of endometriosis cyst.
  • And the combination of HE4 and CA(125) assay could discriminate ovarian endometriosis cysts from ovarian malignant tumors effectively.

  • [Title] Expression of bone morphogenetic protein-2 and its receptors in epithelial ovarian cancer and their influence on the prognosis of ovarian cancer patients.
  • BACKGROUND: To determine the expression of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) and its receptors BMPRIA, BMPRIB, and BMPRII in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) and to analyze their influence on the prognosis of ovarian cancer patients.
  • METHODS: Semi-quantitative RT-PCR and western blot were applied to detect the expression of BMP-2 and its receptors BMPRIA, BMPRIB, and BMPRII in EOC, benign ovarian tumors, and normal ovarian tissue at the mRNA and protein levels.
  • Immunohistochemistry was used to determine the expression of BMP-2 and its receptors in 100 patients with EOC to analyze their influence on the five-year survival rate and survival time of ovarian cancer patients. RESULTS:.
  • (1) The mRNA and protein expression levels of BMP-2, BMPRIB, and BMPRII in ovarian cancer tissue were remarkably lower than those in benign ovarian tumors and normal ovarian tissue, while no significant differences in BMPRIA expression level was found among the three kinds of tissues. (2) The five-year survival rate and the average survival time after surgery of EOC patients with positive expression of BMP-2, BMPRIB, and BMPRII were remarkably higher than those of patients with negative expression of BMP-2, BMPRIB, and BMPRII.
  • BMPRIA expression was not associated with the five-year survival rate or with the average survival time of ovarian cancer patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: BMP-2, BMPRIB, and BMPRII exhibited low expression in EOC tissue, and variation or loss of expression may indicate poor prognosis for ovarian cancer patients.

  • [Title] RhoC expression level is correlated with the clinicopathological characteristics of ovarian cancer and the expression levels of ROCK-I, VEGF, and MMP9.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinicopathological significance of RhoC expression in human ovarian cancer and its effect on the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), Rho-associated coiled-coil-forming kinase (ROCK), and metal matrix proteinases (MMPs).
  • METHODS: Tissue samples from normal ovaries, benign ovarian tumors, and epithelial ovarian cancer were collected.
  • Small interfering RNA (siRNA) was also used to target RhoC expression in the OVCAR3 and CaOV3 ovarian cancer cell lines, after which cell invasion and migration assays were performed, and the expression of ROCK-I, VEGF, and MMP9 was evaluated.
  • RESULTS: The expression levels of RhoC, ROCK-I, VEGF, and MMP9 mRNA and protein were significantly higher in ovarian cancer, showing a correlation with clinical stage but not histological type.
  • CONCLUSION: The expression level of RhoC is correlated to clinical stage and vascularization in ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] [Detection of circulating hypermethylated tumor-specific RASSF1A DNA in ovarian cancer patients].
  • OBJECTIVE: To detect hypermethylated tumor-specific RASSF1A DNA in the circulation and its significance in ovarian cancers patients.
  • METHODS: Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MSP) was used to study the hypermethylation of RASSF1A in preoperative serum samples from 51 ovarian cancer patients.
  • RESULTS: The RASSF1A gene was not methylated in peripheral blood samples from 51 normal patients and 51 patients with benign ovarian tumors.
  • Hypermethylation of RASSF1A gene was found in circulating tumor-specific DNA in 43.1% of patients (22 out of 51 cases) with ovarian cancers (P < 0.05).
  • There was no difference in hypermethylation of RASSF1A gene amongst various ovarian cancer subtypes (P < 0.05).
  • On the other hand, hypermethylation of RASSF1A gene was more frequently encountered in stage III and IV than stage I and II tumors (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a higher frequency of RASSF1A hypermethylation in circulating tumor-specific DNA of ovarian cancer patients.
  • RASSF1A has been postulated to play an important role as tumor suppressor gene and can be silenced by promoter hypermethylation.
  • Such observation may carry diagnostic and prognostic implications when assessing ovarian tumors.

  • They play a role in cell proliferation, malignant transformation and invasion in various tumors.
  • The aim of the current study was to characterize the role of AP-1 in ovarian cancer.
  • Fifty-six ovarian tumors of different invasive potential including 13 metastases as well as 5 ovarian cancer cell lines were analyzed by Western blot analysis regarding their expression of pc-Jun, Jun B, Jun D, c-Fos, Fos B, Fra-1 and Fra-2.
  • The expression of pc-Jun, Jun B, Jun D and Fra-2 was higher in invasive cancer compared to benign tumors.
  • In metastases, c-Fos and Fos B expression was significantly lower than in the respective primary ovarian carcinomas.
  • These results suggest that AP-1 proteins are differentially expressed in benign ovarian tumors, tumors with low malignant potential and epithelial ovarian carcinomas and metastases.
  • No correlation with the proliferative and invasive potential of ovarian cancer cell lines could be found.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathologic features, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of uterine mullerian adenosarcoma.
  • The adenosarcoma was characterized by benign or atypical-appearing neoplastic glands within a sarcomatous stroma.
  • Conservation of unilateral ovary or bilateral ovaries was performed in 5 cases.
  • The other one recurred 2 years after local excision of the tumor in the uterine cavity and she remained healthy since hysterectomy.
  • CONCLUSION: Uterine mullerian adenosarcoma is a rare tumor without specific clinical symptoms and signs.
  • The diagnosis depends on pathomorphologic examination.
  • The tumors show low malignant potential and the vast majority are at early stage.
  • Surgical excision is the main treatment strategy with a good prognosis in the early stage disease with complete removal of tumors.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the apoptosis and Fas (CD95) expression of T lymphocytes from the peripheral blood and peritoneal fluid of the patients with ovarian cancer and their relationship with CA125.
  • Peripheral blood samples were obtained from the following objects respectively: patients with stage III - IV ovarian cancer (n = 18) before and after treatment, patients with stage I - II ovarian cancer (n = 15), patients with benign ovarian tumor (n = 18), patients with Krukenberg tumor (n = 6) and normal control (n = 20).
  • Peritoneal fluids were obtained from all the patients with ovarian cancer, Krukenberg tumor and ten patients with benign ovarian tumor.
  • Level of serum CA125 of the patients with ovarian cancer was assessed.
  • RESULTS: In the patients with stage III - IV ovarian cancer, the apoptosis level of the peripheral blood T lymphocytes was 5.55 (3.57 - 9.62)%, significantly higher than those from the patients with stage I - II ovarian cancer, patients with benign ovarian tumor, controls (P < 0.008 in all instances) and the patients with stage III - IV ovarian cancer after treatment (P < 0.05).
  • The intensity of Fas expression of the peripheral blood T lymphocytes from the patients with stage III - IV ovarian cancer was 51 +/- 10, significantly higher than that from controls (P < 0.05).
  • In peritoneal fluid, the apoptosis rates of T lymphocytes, positive rate and intensity of Fas expression on T lymphocytes from patients with stage I - II and stage III - IV ovarian cancer were 17.41 (7.06 - 24.56)%, (57 +/- 16)%, (55 +/- 11)% and 34.06 (17.03 - 44.65)%, (66 +/- 12)%, (70 +/- 24)%, respectively, increased significantly compared with those from patients with benign ovarian tumor, which were 0.78 (0.67 - 1.44)%, (37 +/- 6)%, 43 +/- 6, respectively (P < 0.01 in all instances).
  • The apoptosis level and positive rate of Fas expression on peritoneal fluid T lymphocytes from patients with stage III - IV ovarian cancer were significantly higher than those from patients with Krukenberg tumor (P < 0.01).
  • There was a positive correlation between the serum CA125 level and the apoptosis level of peritoneal fluid T cell in the patients with stage I - II ovarian cancer (r = 0.77, P = 0.009).
  • For ovarian cancer, the apoptosis level of peritoneal fluid T lymphocytes from patients with the serum CA125 > 500 KU/L was higher than that from the patients with the serum CA125 < or = 500 KU/L (P = 0.009).
  • CONCLUSIONS:. (1) Extraordinarily increased apoptosis of T cells may play an important role in the development of systemic and celiac immunodeficiency in the patients with ovarian cancer.
  • In contrast with the patients with Krukenberg tumor, the patients with advanced ovarian cancer hare higher percentage of apoptotic peritoneal fluid T lymphocytes, which shows the particularity of local immunity defect. (2) For the patients with ovarian cancer, efficient treatment can decrease the percentage of apoptotic peripheral blood T lymphocytes. (3) The increased positive rate and intensity of Fas expression on peritoneal fluid T lymphocytes stressed the significance of Fas interference in the treatment of ovarian cancer. (4) Level of serum CA125 can reflect the celiac immunity defection in patients with ovarian cancer.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) receptors expression situation and their biological significance in human ovarian cancer cell lines and in human epithelial ovarian neoplasms.
  • METHODS: The reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and Western blotting were employed to measure the expression levels of LPA(1), LPA(2) and LPA(3) mRNA, LPA(2) and LPA(3) protein expression in cultured human ovarian cancer cell lines (3AO, SKOV3 and OVCAR3) and in human epithelial ovarian neoplasms.
  • The immunocytochemical method was used to detect LPA(2) and LPA(3) protein expression in cultured human ovarian cancer cell lines.
  • RESULTS: RT-PCR revealed that all ovarian cancer cell lines expressed LPA(1), LPA(2) and LPA(3) mRNA.
  • The positive rates (100%; 86.4%; 88.2%) of LPA(1) mRNA in normal ovarian tissue, benign tumor and ovarian cancer were no significant difference (p>0.05).
  • The expression level of LPA(1) mRNA was significantly higher in normal ovarian tissue compared with that in benign tumor and in ovarian cancer tissue (p<0.01).
  • LPA(1) expression level was no significant difference in both benign tumor and ovarian cancer tissue (p>0.05).
  • LPA(2) mRNA-positive rates (92.6%) and expression level were significantly higher in ovarian cancer compared with that in benign tumor (31.8%) and in normal ovarian tissue (31.3%) (p<0.01); LPA(2) mRNA-positive rates and expression level were no significant difference in both benign tumor and normal ovarian tissue (p>0.05).
  • LPA(3) mRNA-positive rates (92.6%) and expression level were significantly higher in ovarian cancer compared with that in benign tumor (31.8%) and in normal ovarian tissue (31.3%) (p<0.01), LPA(3) mRNA-positive rates and expression level were no significant difference in both benign tumor and normal ovarian tissue (p>0.05).
  • LPA(1) mRNA expression level was significantly decreased compared with that of LPA(2) and LPA(3) in ovarian cancer (p<0.01); Western blotting clearly revealed that all ovarian cancer cell lines showed LPA(2) and LPA(3) protein.
  • The positive rates and expression level of LPA(2) and LPA(3) protein were significantly increased in ovarian cancer (92.6%; 92.6%) compared with that in benign tumor (45.5%; 45.5%) and that in normal ovarian tissue (43.8%; 43.8%) (p<0.01); LPA(2) and LPA(3) protein-positive rates and expression level were no significant difference in both benign tumor and normal ovarian tissue (p>0.05).
  • The mRNA and protein expression of LPA(2) and LPA(3) in stages III and IV was significantly higher than that in stages I and II epithelial ovarian cancer (p<0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: LPA(1), LPA(2) and LPA(3) mRNA and protein expressed widely in human epithelial ovarian neoplasms.
  • LPA(2) and LPA(3) may be involved in the development and progression of human ovarian cancer.
  • There was a significant correlation between LPA(2), LPA(3) and invasion and metastasis of epithelial ovarian cancer.
  • LPA(2) and LPA(3) may be a prognostic indicator in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] [Expressions of osteopontin and B7-H4 in epithelial ovarian neoplasm and their significance].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Epithelial ovarian cancer involves a number of factors.
  • Recent studies have shown that osteopontin (OPN) is related to the occurrence and development of a variety of tumors, but few studies are on ovarian cancer.
  • B7-H4 is a newly identified tumor marker in ovarian cancer.
  • This study explored the expression of OPN and B7-H4 and their clinical significance in epithelial ovarian tumors.
  • METHODS: The expression of OPN and B7-H4 in 15 cases of normal ovarian tissue, 20 of benign ovarian tumor tissue, 20 of borderline ovarian tumor tissue, and 40 of ovarian cancer tissue were detected by immunohistochemistry, and the relationship of OPN and B7-H4 expression to clinical and pathologic features of ovarian cancer was analyzed.
  • RESULTS: The expression of OPN and B7-H4 were significantly higher in ovarian cancer than in borderline and benign tumors (P<0.05).
  • The positive rates of OPN and B7-H4 were significantly higher in poorly differentiated ovarian cancer than in medium and highly differentiated ovarian cancer (P<0.05), and the levels of expression were significantly lower in tissue at stages I and III of ovarian cancer than in stages III and IV (P<0.05).
  • The positive rate of B7-H4 were significantly higher in ovarian serous carcinoma than in the mucinous carcinoma (P<0.05), but did not relate to age and lymph node metastasis.
  • CONCLUSION: The expression of OPN and B7-H4 increased in epithelial ovarian cancer, which could be referenced in the diagnosis of ovarian malignant tumors.

  • OBJECTIVE: Identifying markers specific for mucinous ovarian neoplasms (MON) is important for cancer diagnosis and surveillance, and will help improve our general understanding of the pathobiology of these tumors.
  • METHODS: Western blot compared CEACAM6 expression in normal human ovarian surface epithelium (HOSE) and ovarian cancer cell lines.
  • Quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) was performed on 75 laser-microdissected HOSE and ovarian cancer tissue samples.
  • 100-fold CEACAM6 overexpression (qRT-PCR) was demonstrated in 13/16 (81%) borderline, low-grade, and high-grade invasive MON's, compared to 5/50 (10%) serous and 1/5 (20%) benign mucinous samples.
  • CEACAM6 expression was not different between borderline and invasive MON's (p=0.55) or across tumor stage (p=0.76).
  • None of the serous or benign mucinous tumors exhibited CEACAM6 staining.

  • [Title] Cytologic differentiation of struma ovarii from other ovarian neoplasms.
  • OBJECTIVE: To present the cytologic findings of struma ovarii and value of cytology and immunocytochemistry (ICC) using thyroglobulin (TGB) and thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) in evaluation of this unusual ovarian neoplasm, together with the diagnostic pitfalls.
  • RESULTS: The cases were divided in to 3 groups: group 1--diagnosis of struma ovarii was made by cytology and confirmed by ICC (1 case); group 2--diagnosis was suggestive on cytology or cell block and confirmed by ICC staining (4 cases); group 3--on cytologic diagnosis indistinguishable from other cystic ovarian neoplasms (2 cases).
  • Cytologic findings were typically colloid with mosaic pattern, follicles, follicular cells only, sheets of follicular cells, both colloid and follicular cells, proteinaceous background or degenerated epithelial cells indistinguishable from other cystic ovarian neoplasms.
  • CONCLUSION: Cytologic findings of struma ovarii are distinct enough to be suggested intraoperatively, and ICC for TGB or TTF-1 is a valuable tool for preoperative fine needle aspiration biopsy and intraoperative diagnosis of this benign ovarian neoplasm.

  • [Title] [The expressions and clinical significance of IGFBP-2, -3 in both serum and tumor tissues in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer].
  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the serum levels of IGFBP-2, -3 and their proper roles in the regulation of IGF-II bioavailability in patients with ovarian tumor, and to investigate the correlation between the expressions of IGFBP-2 and IGFBP-3 in ovarian tumor tissues and related clinicopathological characteristics.
  • METHODS: Serum levels of IGFBP-2, -3 and big/mature IGF-II were measured by Western ligand blot (WLB) and Western blot (WB) in patients with ovarian tumor (10 cases of benign tumor, 6 cases of borderline tumor and 10 cases of malignant tumor) and 10 cases of normal control.
  • The expressions of IGFBP-2 and IGFBP-3 were examined in 39 specimens of ovarian tumor (8 cases of benign tumor, 8 cases of borderline tumor and 23 cases of malignant tumor) and 4 cases of normal ovarian tissues by immunohistochemical staining.
  • RESULTS: The serum levels of both big and mature IGF-II in epithelial ovarian cancer (ovarian cancer) patients were significantly decreased compared with those of normal control and benign and borderline tumor (P<0.001 or P<0.01).
  • The increased serum level of IGFBP-2 and decreased IGFBP-3 level were observed in patients with malignant ovarian tumors by comparing with those of patients with normal controls, benign and borderline tumor (P<0.001 or P<0.01).
  • The expression of IGFBP-2 was significantly higher in malignant ovarian tumor tissues than those in normal control and benign ovarian tumors tissues (P<0.0001, P<0.001, and the expression of IGFBP-3 decreased significantly in lower differentiated ovarian cancer tissues compared with that in high and moderate differentiated ovarian cancer tissues (P<0. 05).
  • CONCLUION: IGFBP-2 predominantly presents in the circulation of malignant patients in contrast to IGFBP-3, which may result in altered bioavailability of IGF-II in ovarian cancer, leading to the progress of tumor.
  • The serum levels of both IGFBP-2 and IGFBP-3 and their expressions in tumor tissues are correlated with the clinicopathological characteristics of ovarian cancer patients.
  • Our findings suggest that the presence of new mechanisms in the regulation of IGF-II bioavailability, and provide the evidence for the possibility to use IGFBP-2/IGFBP-3 as biological markers in diagnosis and prognosis of ovarian cancer.

  • BACKGROUND: Cell-free DNA reflects both normal and tumor-derived DNA released into the circulation through cellular necrosis and apoptosis.
  • The authors sought to determine the role of preoperative total plasma cell-free DNA levels in predicting clinical outcome in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: After institutional review board consent, DNA was extracted from plasma of 164 women with invasive epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC), 49 with benign ovarian neoplasms, and 75 age-matched controls.
  • In the training set, EOC patients had a median preoperative cell-free DNA level of 10,113 GE/mL, compared with patients with benign ovarian neoplasms (median, 2365 GE/mL; P < .0001) and controls (median, 1912 GE/mL, P < .0001).
  • Elevated plasma cell-free DNA is an independent predictor for death from disease in ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Clinical applications of microarray technology: creatine kinase B is an up-regulated gene in epithelial ovarian cancer and shows promise as a serum marker.
  • OBJECTIVE:. (1) To identify and (2) validate genes that are up-regulated in ovarian cancer, and (3) to investigate whether the activity of a candidate gene, creatine kinase B (CKB) is elevated in pre-operative sera from ovarian cancer patients compared to patients with benign pelvic masses and normal controls.
  • METHODS: MICROMAX cDNA microarray system and RNA derived from pooled ovarian cancer cell lines and normal ovary surface epithelial cells (HOSE) were used to identify differentially expressed genes.
  • Using a commercially available enzyme assay, CKB activity was measured in pre-operative serum samples obtained from 45 ovarian cancer patients, 49 patients with a benign pelvic mass, as well as 37 normal controls.
  • RNA levels of CKB, measured by real-time PCR, were elevated a mean (and standard error) of 36-fold (8.4) in cancer cell lines compared with HOSE cells and 22.75-fold (10.45) in microdissected ovarian cancer epithelial cells compared with normal ovarian epithelial cells.
  • In serum, the mean (+/-standard error) of CKB enzyme activity in cancer cases was 24.7 U/L units (+/- 5.1) compared to 9.6 U/L (+/- 1.6) for benign mass cases (P = 0.0088) and to 8.5 U/L (1.7) for normal controls (P = 0.0096).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Microarray technology offers a method to identify tumor biomarkers with potential clinical usefulness.
  • Our data indicated that CKB gene expression is up-regulated in ovarian cancer cells in vitro and in vivo and that CKB enzyme activity is significantly elevated in sera from ovarian cancer patients, including those with stage I disease.
  • These findings suggest a potential role for CKB as a marker for early diagnosis.

  • [Title] Pediatric borderline ovarian tumors: a retrospective analysis.
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs) are uncommon in the pediatric population, and there have been limited studies that have included a small number of patients.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-nine patients (median age, 18 years) had a large-sized tumor (median, 19.8 cm).
  • The permanent section histology revealed 25 mucinous (86.2%) and 4 serous type tumors (13.8%).
  • In 2 cases, the suspected recurrences were found to be other benign ovarian tumors.
  • In one case that was initially treated with left ovarian cystectomy for a mucinous BOT, subsequent left salpingo-oophorectomy confirmed recurrence of a mucinous BOT at 16-month follow-up.
  • The last case was a newly developed primary ovarian mucinous carcinoma with no evidence of recurrence of a previous mucinous BOT at 26-month follow-up.

  • [Title] Preoperative sonographic features of borderline ovarian tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the sonographic findings that distinguish borderline ovarian tumors (BOT) from both benign and invasive malignant tumors, thus allowing conservative treatment and laparoscopic management of these tumors.
  • We compared these findings with those of 337 patients with benign ovarian tumors and those of 82 patients with invasive malignant ovarian tumors.
  • The presence of papillae, defined as a small number of solid tissue projections, 1-15 mm in height and 1-10 mm in width (base) and length (base), into the cyst cavity from the cyst wall, was significantly more frequent in BOT (48%) than it was in benign (4%) and invasive (4%) malignant tumors.
  • Intracystic solid tissue (> 15 mm in height or > 10 mm in width or length) was observed in 48% of invasive malignant masses but in only 18% of BOT and in 7% of benign tumors (P < 0.001).

  • [Title] [Relationship between raf kinase inhibitor protein and metastasis of ovarian carcinoma].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between raf kinase inhibitor protein (RKIP), a novel metastasis suppressor gene, and metastasis of ovarian carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemistry, RT-PCR, and western blot analysis were performed to examine the expression of RKIP in clinical samples of ovarian tumors and five human ovarian carcinoma cell lines.
  • Stable cell lines over-expressed or deleted of RKIP were cloned to investigate the function of RKIP in ovarian cancer cells.
  • The recombinant plasmids expressing sense (ss) or antisense (as) RKIP cDNA or empty vector was transfected into ovarian cancer cell line SKOV3 by lipofectamine.
  • The expression level of mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase kinase (MEK) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) in ovarian cancer cells were detected by western blot analysis.
  • (1) The expression levels of RKIP protein in ovarian carcinoma tissues from patients were found to be reduced than those in ovarian benign tumor and borderline tumor.
  • SKOV3 clones stably expressing full-length recombinant ssRKIP, asRKIP, and their respective empty vector were obtained. (2) RKIP was able to block basal levels of MEK and ERK in ovarian cancer cells.
  • CONCLUSION: RKIP could inhibits the metastasis, but also the growth of ovarian cancer cells. patients were found to be reduced than those in ovarian benign tumor and borderline tumor.

  • [Title] Protein levels and gene expressions of the epidermal growth factor receptors, HER1, HER2, HER3 and HER4 in benign and malignant ovarian tumors.
  • The epidermal growth factor receptors, HER1, HER2, HER3 and HER4 play a key role in the growth of malignant tumors.
  • The receptors of the EGF receptor family are not cancer-specific proteins since these receptors are expressed to some extent in both normal and benign tissue, but this is not elucidated in detail in ovarian tissue.
  • High tumor-to-normal-tissue concentration ratios would be favorable for molecular targeted anti-cancer treatment.
  • The primary aim of the study was to analyze the potential differential protein content and gene expression of the four receptors in benign and malignant ovarian tumors.
  • Tissue from 207 patients (101 malignant, 19 borderline, 64 benign ovarian tumors and 23 normal ovaries) were analyzed by quantitative ELISA for HER1-HER4 protein concentrations and by real-time PCR for HER1-HER4 gene expression.
  • The HER2-4 receptor protein content and the median gene expression level was significantly higher in ovarian cancer patients compared to patients with benign ovarian tumors and normal ovaries (p<0.0000001).
  • The protein content of the HER1 receptor was significantly lower in ovarian cancer compared to borderline tumors (p=0.012), benign ovarian tumors (p=0.049) and to normal ovaries (p=0.000069).
  • In conclusion, decreased concentration of HER1 protein and increased HER2, HER3 and HER4 protein concentration were observed, as also elevated HER2-HER4 gene expression levels in ovarian cancer patients with barely any overlap of the HER3 and HER4 expression in malignant ovarian tumors compared to benign ovarian tissues.

  • [Title] Expression and subcellular localization of maspin in human ovarian epithelial neoplasms: correlation with clinicopathologic features.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Maspin is an inhibitor of serine proteinases with tumor suppressor activity that is down-regulated in breast and prostate cancer, but overexpressed in pancreatic carcinoma.
  • However, there were very few published data regarding the role of maspin in ovarian carcinoma.
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate maspin expression in ovarian epithelial neoplasms and correlate its expression with some clinicopathologic parameters.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Seventy eight paraffin embedded ovarian specimens from patients with ovarian epithelial neoplasms comprised the material of this study.
  • They included 18 benign, 14 low malignant potential (LMP) and 46 malignant epithelial ovarian neoplasms, in addition to seven specimens from normal ovarian tissues as a control.
  • RESULTS: Immunohistochemical study of maspin expression using streptavidin biotin immunoperoxidase method revealed that, normal ovarian surface epithelium did not express maspin as well as benign serous and mucinous ovarian epithelial neoplasm.
  • However, all benign Brenner ovarian tumors were maspin positive.
  • On the other hand, 57.14% of LMP tumors showed weak maspin expression and 63% of malignant ovarian epithelial tumors showed maspin expression with 39.1% over expression.
  • The two malignant Brenner tumors studied were maspin negative.
  • There was a trend for maspin expression with high grade, high stage, bilateral tumors and tumors with metastasis.
  • Tumors that showed maspin over-expression showed higher mitotic index (MI) (p=0.02).
  • Invasive cancers were more likely to have predominantly cytoplasmic staining compared to LMP tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Maspin was expressed in a substantial proportion of ovarian tumors with poor prognostic parameters.
  • These results may offer new insights regarding the role of maspin in ovarian cancer that may also impact diagnosis and treatment strategies.
  • Moreover, variation in maspin expression between Brenner tumor and other epithelial surface ovarian tumors may indicate that the different histological types probably represent distinct disease entities and involve different molecular pathways.

  • FH germline mutations were screened from 89 patients with RCC, skin leiomyomas or ovarian tumors.
  • Subsequently, 13 ovarian and 48 bladder carcinomas were analyzed for somatic FH mutations.
  • Two patients diagnosed with ovarian mucinous cystadenoma (two out of 33, 6%) were found to be FH germline mutation carriers.

  • [Title] [Incidence of synchronous primary neoplasms of the female reproductive tract in women with ovarian endometriosis: a retrospective analysis of 811 cases].
  • PURPOSE: Although endometriosis is a benign disorder recent studies suggest endometriosis could be viewed as a neoplastic process.
  • Objective of this study is to explore the epidemiology of synchronous neoplasms (SPN) in women with severe endometriosis.
  • PATIENTS & METHODS: The prevalence of SPN in cases with endometriotic ovarian cysts that underwent surgery at "Lito" Maternity hospital of Athens and at Anticancer Institute of Sophia was investigated.
  • The medical records and pathology were reviewed to confirm the diagnosis and stage of tumors.
  • Similarly, 4 out of 5 ovarian cancers were endometrioid, while one was serum cystadenosarcoma.
  • All of the ovarian malignancies were grade I (Ib in 3 and Ia in 2).
  • Median diameter of the ovarian neoplasias was 4.3 cm, in contradiction to 4.5 cm that was the median diameter of all endometrioid cysts.
  • When only the larger ovarian malignant cyst in each patient was accounted, then median diameter was calculated as 5.8 cm.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Women with synchronous primary cancers of the endometrium and ovary have distinct clinical characteristics including younger age, premenopausal status, and nulliparity.

  • [Title] Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the mesentery: a case report and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Mucinous cystic neoplasms arise in the ovary and various extra-ovarian sites.
  • There have been rare reports involving the mesentery as a primary tumour site.
  • Histology demonstrated a benign mucinous cystadenoma.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: We review the literature on mucinous cystic neoplasms of the mesentery and report on the pathogenesis, biologic behavior, diagnosis and treatment of similar extra-ovarian tumors.
  • We propose an updated classification of mesenteric cysts and cystic tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the mesentery present almost exclusively in women and must be considered in the differential diagnosis of mesenteric tumors.
  • Only full histological examination of a mucinous cystic neoplasm can exclude a borderline or malignant component.
  • An updated classification of mesenteric cysts and cystic tumors is proposed.

  • [Title] Mucinous adenocarcinoma as heterologous element in intermediately differentiated Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor of the ovary.
  • Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor (SLCT) is a rare tumor involving the ovary.
  • SLCT with benign and borderline mucinous neoplasm has been reported in the literature.
  • Herein, we describe a rare case of intermediately differentiated Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor with mucinous adenocarcinoma as the heterologous element in a 21-year-old woman.
  • She presented with throbbing lower abdominal pain and was found to have a large, complex left ovarian mass on imaging studies.
  • Gross examination of the surgical specimen showed a large, encapsulated, solid-cystic mass completely replacing the ovary.
  • Microscopically, the tumor was composed of intermediately differentiated Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor and well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma.
  • Interestingly, the bulk of the tumor (more than 90%) was composed of mucinous adenocarcinoma, whereas the SLCT component comprised less than 10% of the total tumor.
  • The histopathological features and results of immunostaining were consistent with the diagnosis of the intermediately differentiated SLCT with mucinous adenocarcinoma as the heterologous element.
  • This case was a diagnostic challenge as more than 90% of the tumor was composed of mucinous adenocarcinoma and SLCT constituted only the minor part of the tumor.

  • [Title] Primary papillary serous carcinoma of the peritoneum: report of a case with diagnosis by fine needle aspiration and immunocytochemistry.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary papillary serous carcinoma (PPSC) of the peritoneum is a rare neoplasm, histologically indistinguishable from papillary serous carcinoma of the ovary, which diffusely involves the peritoneum but spares or minimally invades the ovaries.
  • To the best of our knowledge, the preoperative and the fine needle aspiration diagnosis of this disorder have not been reported before.
  • CASE: A woman developed an extensive peritoneal neoplasm 4 years after hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for benign disease.
  • Fine needle aspiration of the tumor was performed, and the cytologic and immunocytochemical findings were consistent with papillary serous carcinoma.
  • A diagnosis of PPSC of the peritoneum was rendered because review of all slides from previous surgical specimens showed no evidence of carcinoma and no other primary tumors were found elsewhere.
  • CONCLUSION: Fine needle aspiration cytology coupled with immunocytochemical and clinical data allows an unequivocal preoperative diagnosis of papillary serous carcinoma (primary peritoneal or with an ovarian origin).
  • Based on this fact, the preoperative fine needle aspiration cytology diagnosis of PSCP should be restricted to oophorectomized patients.

  • [Title] [Clinical analysis of benign pelvic mass with high serum levels of CA(125)].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate serum CA(125) levels and the value of serum CA(125) in differential diagnosis of benign pelvic mass.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 492 patients with benign pelvic mass, including 237 cases of benign ovarian tumor and 255 other benign gynecological diseases.
  • Sixty cases of ovarian epithelial cancer were randomly chosen as control group.
  • RESULTS: The median of serum CA(125) in patients with pelvic tuberculosis, uterine adenomyosis, ovarian endometriosis and ovarian fibroma were all higher than the cut-off level of CA(125) (35 kU/L), being 465.0, 88.9, 59.0 and 44.5 kU/L, respectively.
  • Those of ovarian epithelial cancer patients were significantly higher than in benign pelvic mass (P < 0.01).
  • The highest value of CA(125) among all the benign cases was 1281.0 kU/L, which was seen in a case of ovarian thecoma.
  • The highest median value was 465.0 kU/L, detected in a patient with pelvic tuberculosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Serum CA(125) levels in some benign pelvic mass are higher than the cut-off level of CA(125), such as pelvic tuberculosis, uterine adenomyosis, ovarian fibroma and ovarian endometriosis.
  • The medians of serum CA(125) in benign pelvic mass are much lower than in ovarian epithelial cancer.
  • Serum CA(125) is of significance in the differential diagnosis between hysteromyoma and uterine adenomyosis.

  • [Title] Serum lipids concentration in women with benign and malignant ovarian tumours.
  • Early diagnosis can improve clinical effects of ovarian carcinoma treatment.
  • Serum lipid and lipoprotein association with neoplasm is already established.
  • In our study, we have examined concentration of total cholesterol, free cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, HDL3 and HDL free cholesterol fraction, triglycerides, and apolipoproteins: AI, AII and B and aimed to prepare the most likely model of lipid profile in women suffering from ovarian neoplasm.
  • The serum lipid parameters were analysed in 91 operated patients: 64 with ovarian malignant tumour, 27 with benign ovarian cysts and 44 apparently healthy age-matching pair women as a control group.
  • THE RESULTS: concentration of two parameters: apolipoprotein AI and free cholesterol allows for excluding ovarian neoplasm in 95.5%; examination of six parameters: apolipoprotein AI, free cholesterol, HDL-free cholesterol, HDL total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B and HDL3 fraction allows for diagnosing ovarian malignancy with 97% probability.
  • No statistically significant difference between malignant and benign ovarian tumour has been confirmed.

  • [Title] Evaluation of serum adenosine deaminase and 5'-nucleotidase activities as probable markers in ovarian cancer.
  • Adenosine deaminase (ADA) and 5'-nucleotidase (5'-NT) activities were measured in sera of patients with ovarian cancer and patients with benign ovarian tumour.
  • ADA levels were significantly increased (P<0.001) in the ovarian cancer group (n=50) but not in the benign group (n=28) when compared to the controls (n=20).
  • The results indicate that ADA and 5'-NT levels may help to differentiate malignant conditions from benign tumours of the ovary in addition to the existing tests such as serum CA-125 levels and histopathological study.

  • [Title] Differential expression of aldehyde dehydrogenase 1a1 (ALDH1) in normal ovary and serous ovarian tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: We showed there are specific ALDH1 autoantibodies in ovarian autoimmune disease and ovarian cancer, suggesting a role for ALDH1 in ovarian pathology.
  • However, there is little information on the ovarian expression of ALDH1.
  • Therefore, we compared ALDH1 expression in normal ovary and benign and malignant ovarian tumors to determine if ALDH1 expression is altered in ovarian cancer.
  • Since there is also recent interest in ALDH1 as a cancer stem cell (CSC) marker, we assessed co-expression of ALDH1 with CSC markers in order to determine if ALDH1 is a potential CSC marker in ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: mRNA and protein expression were compared in normal human ovary and serous ovarian tumors using quantitative Reverse-Transcriptase PCR, Western blot (WB) and semi-quantitative immunohistochemistry (IHC).
  • ALDH1 enzyme activity was confirmed in primary ovarian cells by flow cytometry (FC) using ALDEFLUOR assay.
  • RESULTS: ALDH1 mRNA expression was significantly reduced (p < 0.01; n = 5) in malignant tumors compared to normal ovaries and benign tumors.
  • The proportion of ALDH1+ cells was significantly lower in malignant tumors (17.1 ± 7.61%; n = 5) compared to normal ovaries (37.4 ± 5.4%; p < 0.01; n = 5) and benign tumors (31.03 ± 6.68%; p < 0.05; n = 5).
  • ALDH1+ cells occurred in the stroma and surface epithelium in normal ovary and benign tumors, although surface epithelial expression varied more in benign tumors.
  • Localization of ALDH1 was heterogeneous in malignant tumor cells and little ALDH1 expression occurred in poorly differentiated malignant tumors.
  • In benign tumors the distribution of ALDH1 had features of both normal ovary and malignant tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Total ALDH1 expression is significantly reduced in malignant ovarian tumors while it is relatively unchanged in benign tumors compared to normal ovary.
  • Thus, ALDH1 expression in the ovary does not appear to be similar to breast, lung or colon cancer suggesting possible functional differences in these cancers.
  • SIGNIFICANCE: These observations suggest that reduced ALDH1 expression is associated with malignant transformation in ovarian cancer and provides a basis for further study of the mechanism of ALDH1 in this process.

  • [Title] A comparative study of the risk of malignancy index and the ovarian crescent sign for the diagnosis of invasive ovarian cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: To compare the value of the risk of malignancy index (RMI) and the ovarian crescent sign (OCS) in the diagnosis of ovarian malignancy.
  • METHODS: This was a prospective observational study of women with ultrasonographic diagnosis of an ovarian cyst.
  • The RMI was calculated in all cases using a previously published formula (RMI = U (ultrasound score) x M (menopausal status) x serum CA125 (kU/L)).
  • A value > 200 was considered to be diagnostic of ovarian cancer.
  • The OCS was defined as a rim of visible healthy ovarian tissue in the ipsilateral ovary.
  • RESULTS: A total of 106 consecutive women were included in the study, of whom 92 (86.8%) had a benign ovarian tumor, five (4.7%) had borderline lesions and nine (8.5%) had an invasive ovarian cancer.
  • The absence of an OCS diagnosed invasive ovarian cancer with a sensitivity of 100% (95% CI, 70-100%), specificity of 93% (95% CI, 86-96%), positive predictive value (PPV) of 56%, negative predictive value (NPV) of 100% and positive likelihood ratio (LR+) of 13.86 (95% CI, 6.79-28.29).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The RMI and the OCS are useful tests for discriminating between invasive and non-invasive ovarian tumors.
  • The application of these tests in a sequential manner might improve the overall accuracy of ovarian cancer diagnosis.

  • [Title] [Expression of microRNA-21 in ovarian epithelial carcinoma and its clinical significance].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression of microRNA-21(miR-21) in ovarian epithelial carcinoma and its association with the clinicopathological features.
  • METHODS: The expression of miR-21 was detected by Stem-loop real-time RT-PCR in 48 cases of ovarian epithelial carcinomas, 24 cases of benign ovarian epithelial tumors and 15 cases of normal ovarian tissues.
  • RESULTS: The relative expression level of miR-21(2-(DeltaDelta)CT) was 4.849-/+1.813 in the ovarian epithelial carcinomas, significantly higher than that in the benign ovarian tumors and normal ovarian tissues (P<0.01), but comparable between the latter two groups.
  • CONCLUSION: MiR-21 might play a role as an oncogene in the tumorigenesis and development of ovarian epithelial carcinoma, and is possibly correlated to the progression and prognosis of ovarian epithelial carcinoma.

  • [Title] Borderline tumors of the ovary and peritoneal implants.
  • The new WHO series on Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Breast and Female Genital Organs (33) defined to name the group of epithelial ovarian tumors with a dignity between benign and malignant exclusively as Borderline Tumors of the Ovary (BOT) and to skip the term "... of low malignant potential".
  • Further, the term "atypical proliferative tumour" was not recommended by the WHO.
  • During a Consensus Meeting on Borderline Tumors of the Ovary held at Bethesda on August 27-28, 2003 (2) the expert panel also recommended to use the BOT terminology.
  • However the term "tumour of low malignant potential" and--less favourable--"atypical proliferative tumour" may be used as synonym.
  • Both groups agreed unanimously that the name carcinoma should not be included in the diagnosis.
  • The group of borderline ovarian tumors is heterogeneous.
  • 80 to 90% of the cases have a very favourable prognosis while 10-20% exhibit a recurrent clinical course with peritoneal implants and very rarely death from the tumor within 10 years.
  • The morphological criteria and supporting methods for recognizing unfavorable BOT and for distinguishing them from highly differentiated ovarian carcinomas are summarized.
  • The presented data focus on serous tumors since this is by far the most common variant.

  • [Title] Cleaved forms of the urokinase plasminogen activator receptor in plasma have diagnostic potential and predict postoperative survival in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the plasma level of different forms of soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) as discriminators between malignant, borderline, and benign ovarian tumors and as prognostic markers in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • Tumors were classified as benign (n = 211), borderline (possibly malignant; n = 30), and well (n = 19), moderately (n = 15), and poorly (n = 60) differentiated malignant.
  • RESULTS: All uPAR forms as well as CA125 were statistically significant in univariate analysis discriminating between benign, borderline, and invasive tumors.
  • Restricting the analysis of invasive tumors to early stage (I and II) showed similar results.
  • A combination of CA125 and suPAR(I-III) + suPAR(II-III) discriminated between malignant (all stages) and benign tumors [AUC, 0.94; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 0.90-0.98] as well as borderline and benign tumors (AUC, 0.78; 95% CI, 0.67-0.89).
  • CONCLUSIONS: High concentration of plasma uPAR(I) is an independent preoperative marker of poor prognosis in patients with ovarian cancer.
  • The combination of plasma suPAR(I-III) + suPAR(II-III) and CA125 discriminates between malignant and benign tumors with an AUC of 0.94.

  • OBJECTIVES: To describe symptoms, delay in presentation and reasons for non-presentation among women diagnosed with benign, low malignant potential and malignant ovarian tumors.
  • METHODS: Study participants included 457 women who underwent surgery for an ovarian tumor in Queensland, Australia, between July 1999 and February 2002 (244 with invasive cancer, 62 with low malignant potential tumors, and 151 with benign ovarian tumors).
  • Women were contacted a minimum of three months post-diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: Overall, only 8% of the women were asymptomatic at the time of their diagnosis.
  • Women with invasive cancer reported a greater number of symptoms (3.1 and 3.6 for Stages I-II and III-IV, respectively) than women with benign or low malignant potential tumors (2.8 and 2.2 respectively; p < 0.0001).
  • Women with invasive disease were more likely to experience weight loss or gain, general malaise, chest/respiratory pain, abdominal swelling and bowel symptoms than women with benign ovarian tumors, however the symptom pattern for early- and late-stage invasive ovarian cancer could not be clearly differentiated.
  • Delay in presentation was not associated with more advanced disease suggesting that earlier diagnosis may not increase the proportion of cancers diagnosed at an early stage.

  • [Title] Expression of tumor-specific antigen MAGE, GAGE and BAGE in ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines.
  • BACKGROUND: To observe mRNA expression of tumor-specific antigen MAGE, BAGE and GAGE in epithelial ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines, to explore the relationship between gene expression and diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of ovarian cancer, and to evaluate the feasibility of their gene products as markers, and an immunotherapy target for ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: mRNA expression of MAGE-1, MAGE-3, GAGE-1/2 and BAGE were determined by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in 14 cases of normal ovarian tissue, 20 cases of ovarian benign tumor specimens, 41 cases of ovarian cancer specimens, and ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV3, A2780, and COC1.
  • RESULTS: MAGE, GAGE and BAGE genes were not expressed in normal ovarian tissue.
  • In benign tumors, only the MAGE gene was expressed; the expression rate of this gene in benign tumors was 15% (3/20).
  • In ovarian cancer tissues, MAGE-1 and MAGE-3 was highly expressed, with expression rates of 53.7% (22/41) and 36.6% (15/41), while GAGE-1/2 and BAGE had relatively low expression, with rates of 26.8% (11/41) and 14.6% (6/41).
  • In metastatic lesions of ovarian cancer, only MAGE-1 and BAGE were expressed, with expression rates of 28.6% (2/7) and 14.3% (1/7).
  • The positive expression rates of MAGE-1 and MAGE-3 in serous cystadenocarcinoma were significantly higher than that in other types of ovarian cancer (P < 0.05).
  • Positive expression of MAGE-1 and MAGE-3 was positively correlated with tumor differentiation and the clinical stage of the ovarian cancer.
  • In addition, the positive expression rate of BAGE was significantly higher in ovarian cancer patients with ascites (P < 0.05).
  • The mRNA expression profiles of MAGE, GAGE and BAGE in ovarian carcinoma cell lines SKOV3, A2780 and COC1 varied, but there was at least one gene expressed in each cell line.
  • CONCLUSION: Tumor-specific antigen MAGE, BAGE and GAGE may play a role in the occurrence and development of ovarian cancer.
  • These genes can be used as one of the important indicators for early diagnosis, efficacy evaluation and prognostic determination of ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Polytomous diagnosis of ovarian tumors as benign, borderline, primary invasive or metastatic: development and validation of standard and kernel-based risk prediction models.
  • BACKGROUND: Hitherto, risk prediction models for preoperative ultrasound-based diagnosis of ovarian tumors were dichotomous (benign versus malignant).
  • We develop and validate polytomous models (models that predict more than two events) to diagnose ovarian tumors as benign, borderline, primary invasive or metastatic invasive.
  • However, discrimination between primary and metastatic invasive tumors decreased to near random levels.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We have developed models that successfully discriminate between benign, borderline, and invasive ovarian tumors.
  • The random discrimination between primary and metastatic invasive tumors on temporal/external validation demonstrated once more the necessity of validation studies.

  • RESULTS: Spectroscopy analysis of serous, mucinous and undifferentiated carcinoma of the ovary revealed Cho, lactate and lipid signals, but granulosa-theca cell tumor showed only a lipid signal.
  • The Cho signal was obtained from only 3 patients with mature cystic teratoma but none of the other benign ovarian tumors and pelvic abscesses.
  • A lipid signal was detected in 3 patients diagnosed with pelvic abscess and all benign ovarian tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: MRS demonstrates significant differences in metabolite concentration between benign and malignant ovarian tumors and pelvic abscesses.
  • MRS may therefore be helpful in the differential diagnosis of adnexal lesions.

  • [Title] Plexin-B1 silencing inhibits ovarian cancer cell migration and invasion.
  • However, whether or not Plexin-B1 expression is involved in human ovarian tumors remains unclear.
  • In the present study, Plexin-B1 expression was explored in benign and malignant human ovarian tumor tissues.
  • In addition, the impact of Plexin-B1 expression on ovarian cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion were investigated in vitro.
  • METHODS: Plexin-B1 expression was analyzed in normal and benign ovarian tissues and serous ovarian tumors (both borderline and malignant) by immunohistochemical staining, as well as in four human ovarian cancer cell lines (A2780, C13*, SKOV3, and OV2008) by RT-PCR and western blot analyses.
  • RESULTS: Expression levels of Plexin-B1 protein were significantly higher in serous ovarian carcinomas than in normal ovaries or benign ovarian neoplasms, and in the former, Plexin-B1 expression was positively correlated with lymphatic metastasis, and the membrane and cytoplasm of cancer cells stained positively.
  • SKOV3 cells displayed the highest Plexin-B1 expression at both the mRNA and protein levels among the four tested human ovarian cancer cell lines and was selected as a cell model for further in vitro experiments.
  • CONCLUSION: Plexin-B1 expression correlates with malignant phenotypes of serous ovarian tumors, probably via phosphorylation of AKT at Ser473, suggesting that Plexin-B1 might be a useful biomarker and/or a novel therapeutic target.

  • [Title] Expression of p53 protein phosphorylated at serine 20 and serine 392 in malignant and benign ovarian neoplasms: correlation with clinicopathological parameters of tumors.
  • The study investigated the expression of p53 protein phosphorylated at serine 20 (Ser20) and Ser392 and the association between clinicopathological parameters of ovarian neoplasms with respect to p53 protein overexpression.
  • METHODS: p53 protein expression was evaluated on tissues from malignant and benign ovarian tumors.
  • RESULTS: The correlation between p53 protein overexpression and p53-Ser392 phosphorylation was found in ovarian carcinomas (P = 0.001, r = +0.27).
  • In the total group of ovarian carcinomas, significant differences were observed in p53 protein overexpression between well (G1) and poor (G3) tumor grades (P = 0.005) and between serous and endometrioid types of tumor (P = 0.04), whereas p53-Ser20 phosphorylation was associated with advanced International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage (P = 0.004) and high tumor grade (P = 0.02).
  • In p53-positive ovarian carcinomas, p53-Ser392 phosphorylation was associated with advanced tumor stage (P = 0.02) and high tumor grade (P = 0.049).
  • p53-Ser20 phosphorylation was associated with low tumor grade of p53-positive ovarian carcinomas (P = 0.02) and with high tumor grade of p53-negative ovarian carcinomas (P = 0.02).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results revealed that p53 phosphorylation at Ser20 and Ser392 is an early event in ovarian tumor development.
  • The authors suggest that the expression of p53 protein phosphorylated at Ser20 and Ser392 in ovarian carcinomas determines their individual clinical features depending on p53 protein status and may be useful biological biomarkers characterizing their behavior.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic surgery for presumed benign ovarian tumor during pregnancy.
  • BACKGROUND: The surgical management of ovarian tumors in pregnancy is similar to that of non-pregnant women.
  • The procedures include resection of the tumor (enucleation), removal of an ovary or ovaries (oophorectomy), or surgical excision of the fallopian tube and ovary (salpingo-oophorectomy).
  • OBJECTIVES: To compare the effects of using laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumor during pregnancy on maternal and fetal health and the use of healthcare resources.
  • SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomized controlled trials with reported data that compared outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumor in pregnancy to conventional laparotomy technique.
  • AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: The practice of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy is associated with benefits and harms.
  • The available case series studies of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy provide limited insight into the potential benefits and harms associated with this new surgical technique in pregnancy.
  • Randomized controlled trials are required to provide the most reliable evidence regarding the benefits and harms of laparoscopic surgery for benign ovarian tumour during pregnancy.

  • [Title] Preoperative detection of ovarian cancer by color Doppler ultrasonography and CA 125.
  • PURPOSE: Early detection of ovarian malignancy is of great clinical importance.
  • The high mortality rate is due to the difficulties with the early detection of ovarian cancer.
  • Current research attempted to assess the accuracy of Color Doppler Sonography and serum CA-125 level as diagnostic tool of ovarian tumor.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 60 consecutive patients with ovarian tumor attending the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of BSMMU were recruited.
  • Following excision, routine histopathology revealed 43.30% malignant (n=26) and 56.7% (n=34) benign ovarian lesion.
  • Sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive and negative predictive value of the diagnosis made by CDS, CA125, in the discrimination of the benign and malignant ovarian tumors was calculated.
  • Using Receiver operative characteristics analysis the accuracy of RI, PI, CA 125 and Novel Index in the diagnosis of ovarian tumor (benign or malignant) were assessed.
  • RESULTS: With the Cut-off of < .5, Resistance Index is found to be capable of detecting 92% of malignant cases (sensitivity 91.7), and could detect 89% (specificity 88.9) of benign cases correctly which translates in to 90% accuracy in the diagnosis of ovarian tumor.
  • RI is found to be more sensitive in detection of positive cases (Malignant) and CA125 is found to be more accurate in detection of negative cases (Benign).
  • CONCLUSION: Color Doppler ultra-sonography and CA125 excels in different tasks, the study concludes in favor of concurrent use of the methods for improving efficacy and thus early detection of ovarian malignancy.

  • [Title] The expression of Müllerian inhibiting substance/anti-Müllerian hormone type II receptor protein and mRNA in benign, borderline and malignant ovarian neoplasia.
  • This study investigated the expression patterns of Müllerian inhibiting substance/anti-Müllerian hormone type II receptor (MIS/AMHRII) and mRNA in various types of ovarian neoplasia and evaluated the clinical significance of MIS/AMH as a biological response modifier for MIS/AMHR-positive tumors.
  • There was no significant difference in expression intensity between MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA on all ovarian samples whether benign or malignant.
  • MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA were weakly expressed on 45.45% of benign ovarian tumors.
  • In borderline tumors, expression rates of MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA were 77.78% with score 1.22 and 55.56% with score 1, respectively.
  • In malignant ovarian tumors, expression rates of MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA were 70% with score 1.23 and 75% with score 1.43, respectively.
  • Among malignant ovarian tumors, sex cord stromal tumors showed the highest expression rate and the strongest intensity of MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA followed by germ cell tumor and epithelial ovarian tumor.
  • Non-epithelial malignant tumors showed stronger expression than that of epithelial tumors (P<0.05, P<0.001, respectively).
  • In serous borderline malignant and malignant tumors, MIS/AMHRII protein and mRNA expression was 63.64 and 81.82% with expression intensity of 1.27 and 1.46, respectively, which were not statistically different from non-epithelial malignant tumors.
  • MIS/AMHRII and MIS/AMHRII mRNA demonstrate significantly variable expression among different ovarian tumor types.
  • Non-epithelial cell tumors show higher expression than those of epithelial cell tumors.
  • The highest expression rate and intensity were observed on sex cord stromal tumors.
  • These data support that MIS/AMH may be used as a biological modifier or therapeutic modulator in MIS/AMHRII-expressed ovarian tumors.

  • [Title] Ovarian fibroma: a review on the clinical characteristics, diagnostic difficulties, and management options of 23 cases.
  • AIM: We review clinical characteristics, diagnostic difficulties, and our experience in the surgical management of ovarian fibromas.
  • METHOD: Twenty-three women with the operative diagnosis of an ovarian fibroma managed between January 1995 and August 2004 were reviewed retrospectively.
  • RESULTS: These patients comprised 1% of all benign ovarian tumors seen over this study period.
  • The diagnosis of an ovarian fibroma or a solid ovarian tumor was correctly made preoperatively in only 5 patients (21.7%).
  • All tumors were unilateral, and the median size was 13 cm.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Gynecologists should be aware of this group of ovarian tumors despite their uncommon occurrence.
  • There are clinical clues to differentiate an ovarian fibroma from uterine fibroid and ovarian malignancy.
  • Surgical removal of these solid ovarian tumors is recommended because of the low probability of malignancy.
  • Minimal-access surgery is an option, especially when the tumor is of moderate or small size.

  • [Title] B7-H4 is over-expressed in early-stage ovarian cancer and is independent of CA125 expression.
  • OBJECTIVE: This study characterizes the expression of the novel biomarker B7-H4 in ovarian cancer tissue, normal ovaries, and benign ovarian tumors, and evaluates its relationship to CA125.
  • METHODS: Ovarian tissue lysates from 251 patients with ovarian carcinoma were assessed for the levels of B7-H4 and CA125 by ELISA assays.
  • For comparison, ovarian tissues from patients with benign ovarian tumors (n=43) and patients with normal ovaries (n=32) were tested.
  • B7-H4 was elevated in tumors of 30 patients with early stage cancer that were negative for CA125.
  • CONCLUSION: B7-H4 expression was low in normal ovaries and in benign tumors while half of early stage and two-thirds of late stage cancers over-expressed B7-H4.
  • The data are consistent with previous observations and support further investigation of B7-H4 in the detection of early stage ovarian cancer either alone, or in combination with CA125.

  • [Title] Brenner tumors of the ovary: sonographic and computed tomographic imaging features.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe the sonographic appearance of ovarian Brenner tumors with computed tomographic (CT) correlation.
  • METHODS: Twenty-two female patients (age range, 32-78 years; mean, 58 years) with 25 ovarian Brenner tumors were identified from pathologic records from 1990 to 2005.
  • RESULTS: Tumors ranged in size from 0.3 to 12 cm (mean, 2.5 cm); all were benign.
  • Eight (36%) of 22 patients had a total of 12 associated benign ovarian neoplasms (1 was contralateral); 3 patients had bilateral Brenner tumors.
  • Eight (47%) of 17 tumors were not seen on sonography, and 5 (36%) of 14 were not seen on CT.
  • Of the tumors seen on imaging, most were solid (67% on sonography and 78% on CT).
  • Four tumors appeared at least partially cystic, of which 3 had coexistent cystic ovarian lesions.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Brenner tumors are most often solid neoplasms found incidentally and frequently seen in association with other benign ovarian epithelial neoplasms.

  • [Title] The use of multiple novel tumor biomarkers for the detection of ovarian carcinoma in patients with a pelvic mass.
  • OBJECTIVES: The CA125 tumor marker is used to help predict the presence of ovarian cancer in patients with an adnexal mass.
  • Because elevated CA125 levels occur in many benign gynecologic conditions, we set out to identify other novel biomarkers that would increase the sensitivity and specificity of CA125.
  • Of these, 233 patients were eligible for analysis with 67 invasive epithelial ovarian cancers and 166 benign ovarian neoplasms.
  • Mean values for all marker levels except Her2 differed significantly between patients with benign masses and cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: As a single tumor marker, HE4 had the highest sensitivity for detecting ovarian cancer, especially Stage I disease.

  • The objective of this study was to determine if the level of serum hyaluronan (HA), serum-derived HA-associated protein (SHAP)-HA complex, and urinary trypsin inhibitor (UTI) correlate with the clinical outcome of ovarian cancer patients.
  • Serum and urine samples were obtained from 45 patients with ovarian cancer, 22 patients with benign ovarian tumors and 50 healthy women.
  • The levels of HA, SHAP-HA complex, MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were higher in the ovarian cancer group than in the benign ovarian tumor group.
  • In ovarian cancer patients, the levels of HA, SHAP-HA complex and MMP-9 were higher in the stage III/IV group than in the stage I/II group, and the levels of SHAP-HA complex, MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were higher in the non-responder group than in the responder group.
  • The serum concentration of SHAP-HA complex had a significant correlation with HA, MMP-9 and TIMP-1 in ovarian cancer patients.
  • The elevated level of SHAP-HA complex may indicate the prognosis of recurrence and reflect the tumor metastasis associated with MMP-9 in ovarian cancer patients.
