OBJECTIVE Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancer, reflecting its often late diagnosis and its chemoresistance. We identified a set of microRNAs whose expression is altered upon BAG3 knockdown. Our primary objective was to examine the relationships between BAG3, miR-29b and Mcl-1, an antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family protein, in(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) mean values can be used for predicting the treatment response in ovarian endometrial cyst patients with dienogest (DNG) administration. Eighteen patients received DNG (2 mg/day, orally) for 60 days, among whom 26 ovarian endometrial cysts were retrospectively(More)
Paclitaxel in combination with carboplatin improves survival among patients with susceptible ovarian cancers, but no strategy has been established against resistant ovarian cancers. BAG3 (Bcl-2-associated athanogene 3) is one of six BAG family proteins, which are involved in such cellular processes as proliferation, migration and apoptosis. In addition,(More)
Approximately 30% of uterine corpus carcinomas are diagnosed at an advanced stage and have a poor prognosis. Our previous study indicated that BCL2-associated athanogene 3 (BAG3) enhances matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP2) expression and binds to MMP2 to positively regulate the process of cell invasion in ovarian cancer cells. Recently, altered miRNA(More)
INTRODUCTION Placenta percreta is associated with maternal morbidity and mortality. A hysterectomy is often needed to control the bleeding in such cases. However, it has been advocated that placenta percreta be managed conservatively to avoid massive pelvic bleeding and to preserve the patient's fertility. Here, we present a case of placenta percreta(More)
OBJECTIVE Endometrioid adenocarcinoma (EAC) is a common endometrial cancer with recent dramatic increases in incidence. Previous findings indicate that Rap1GAP acts as a tumor suppressor inhibiting Ras superfamily protein Rap1 in multiple aggressive carcinomas; however, Rap1GAP expression in EAC has not been investigated. In this study, the tumor(More)
