Synovial sarcomas commonly occur in the extremities of young adults. A primary occurrence in the mediastinum is very rare with only a few reported cases in the world literature. This paper is about a 42-year-old male who presented with chest pain and dyspnoea on exertion. Imaging showed an anterior mediastinal mass with adhesions to the lung. Pathological(More)
INTRODUCTION Imprinted genes play an important role in mammalian fetoplacental growth and development. We have evaluated whether the placental expression of two imprinted genes, growth factor receptor-binding protein 10 (GRB10) and pleckstrin homology-like domain, family A, member 2 (PHLDA2) correlate with human fetoplacental growth parameters. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE Cyclin D1 is a cell cycle regulatory gene emerging as a potentially significant oncogene in invasive breast cancers. In this study, we attempted to see the expression of Cyclin D1 in invasive ductal carcinomas of the breast in our population and correlate its expression with other known prognostic parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 39(More)

CONTEXT Accurate diagnosis of Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) and categorization of risk groups is crucial in the wake of targeted drug therapy. AIM This study was undertaken to obtain insight into the clinicopathologic features of GISTs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective study of 20 cases of c-KIT (CD 117) positive GISTs .Various histologic(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an endothelial mitogen, acts through VEGF receptors (VEGFRs) on the endothelial cells. During neoplastic transformation, it is hypothesized that the tumor expresses VEGF and also acquire VEGF receptor, enabling VEGF action in an autocrine and paracrine manner with varied effects on the tumor growth and(More)
BACKGROUND Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare and poorly understood clinicopathological entity characterized by gelatinous ascites with neoplastic or non-neoplastic mucinous implants in the peritoneum. Although its origin was debated, current evidence in literature favours the appendix as the origin of the disease, over the ovaries. The changing(More)
AIMS Placental physiology and morphology is critically regulated by DNA methylation. As such, placental global DNA methylation and transcript abundance of placental DNA methyltransferases (DNMT1 and DNMT3A) may relate to placental and fetal growth in human pregnancies. We aimed to test correlations of human fetoplacental parameters and birth weight with the(More)
Despite medical advancements, the inflammatory cascade and oxidative stress worsen the prognosis in most cases of peritonitis. Curcumin has emerged as a potential antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent in few of the acute inflammatory and infective conditions. We examined the effect of intraperitoneal injection of curcumin in endotoxin-induced peritonitis(More)
