Endometrioid adenocarcinoma arising from endometriosis of the uterine cervix is rare in premenopausal woman. We describe here a patient with this condition and review the clinical and pathological features of these tumors. A 48-yr-old woman complaining of severe dysmenorrhea was referred for investigation of a pelvic mass. Total abdominal hysterectomy and(More)
Small intestinal adenocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm, and its clinicopathologic characteristics have not been well elucidated. A total of 197 small intestinal adenocarcinoma cases were collected from 22 institutions in South Korea and were evaluated for clinicopathologic factors that affect the prognosis of small intestinal adenocarcinoma patients(More)
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been shown to improve the rate of peripheral nerve regeneration. In the present study we investigated the expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) and phospholipase C-gamma1 (PLC-gamma1) in regenerating rat laryngeal nerves during the exposure to PEMF after surgical transection and reanastomosis. Axons were(More)
OBJECTIVES Small intestinal adenocarcinoma (SIAC) is an exceedingly rare human malignant tumor, and its association with the S100A14 gene is not known yet. We aimed to investigate the clinicopathological correlations between S100A14 expression and SIAC. METHODS Immunohistochemical analyses of S100A14, p21 and p53 were performed using tissue microarray(More)
Small intestinal adenocarcinomas (SIACs) are rare, and their molecular pathogenesis is largely unknown. To define the roles of E-cadherin and β-catenin, we performed immunohistochemistry for E-cadherin and β-catenin in 194 surgically resected SIACs with tissue microarrays and compared the data with clinicopathologic factors, including survival rates of(More)
The clinicopathological and prognostic significance of CDX2 and mucin expression have not been comprehensively evaluated in small intestinal adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical microarray analyses of CDX2, MUC1, MUC5AC, and MUC6 protein expressions in 189 surgically resected small intestinal adenocarcinoma cases were examined and compared with various(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Although primary small intestinal carcinoma (SIC) is morphologically similar to colorectal carcinoma and shares many of the genetic changes of carcinogenesis, little is known about the role of defective mismatch repair (MMR) genes involved in the SIC. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of defective MMR genes and correlation(More)
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma involving the esophagus is very rare. Only a few cases have been reported in the English literature to date, and it accounts for less than 1% of all cases of gastrointestinal lymphoma. As this malignancy manifests as a submucosal tumor, pathological diagnosis by using a simple endoscopic biopsy alone is difficult. Therefore, surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Eupatilin, a pharmacologically active flavone derived from Artemisia species, is known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is a major complication after renal transplantation, with inflammatory responses to IRI exacerbating the resultant renal injury. In the present study, we investigated(More)
BACKGROUND The transplantation of isolated pancreatic islets is a promising treatment for diabetes. 5,7-dihydroxy-3,4,6-trimethoxyflavone (Eupatilin), a pharmacologically active flavone derived from the Artemisia plant species, has been reported to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. This study examines the hypothesis that preoperative(More)
