The aim of the study was to explore the clinical value of serum human epididymis secretory protein E4 (HE4) and CA125 in endometrial carcinoma. From January 2010 to April 2012, serum specimens were collected from consecutive cases of endometrial carcinoma and from cases of uterus benign disease (control group). The CA125 normal value is considered less than(More)

It depends on an X-linked mutations in the Androgen Receptor (AR) gene that express a variety of phenotypes(More)
PURPOSE It is often difficult to distinguish a benign endometrial disease from a malignancy and tools to help the physician are needed to triage patients into high and low risk of endometrial cancer. The purpose of this study was to obtain a predictive model to assess the risk of endometrial malignancy (REM) in women with ultrasound endometrial(More)

Author manuscripts have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication but have not yet been edited. For the first time in literature, we assessed a new risk stratification tool of EC, called REM, combining, in a prospective collection, serum markers, clinical and ultrasound features. Basis on our results, REM may be used to triage women at high risk of EC(More)
Thyroid diseases are common during pregnancy and an adequate treatment is important to prevent adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. Subclinical diseases are very frequent but not easily recognized without specific screening programs. In this article we try to summarize the knowledge on the physiologic change of the thyroid and pathological function during(More)
