BACKGROUND AND AIMS Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is characterized by peritoneal tumors arising from a perforated appendiceal adenoma or adenocarcinoma, but associated entry of enteric bacteria in the peritoneum has not been considered as a cofactor. Because Gram-negative organisms can upregulate MUC2 mucin gene expression, we determined whether bacteria(More)
BACKGROUND Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a malignancy characterized by dissemination of mucus-secreting cells throughout the peritoneum. This disease is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and despite effective treatment options for early-stage disease, patients with PMP often relapse. Thus, there is a need for additional treatment options(More)
Peritoneal tumors from a rare malignancy, pseudomyxoma peritonei, frequently contain bacteria. Evidence suggests that tumor-associated bacteria contribute to pseudomyxoma peritonei development and/or progression. One unique isolate (PMP191F) was characterized via whole-genome sequencing using the Illumina MiSeq platform. PMP191F shows similarities to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Disseminated Peritoneal Adenomucinosis (DPAM) is an infrequent presentation of appendiceal cancer. Infrequently, umbilical or inguinal hernias could be the first clinical manifestation of this condition; DPAM extension to the scrotum may be anatomically viable. Treatment with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal(More)
