Patterns of Gene Expression in Different Histotypes of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Correlate with Those in Normal Fallopian Tube, Endometrium, and Colon
Purpose: Epithelial ovarian cancers are thought to arise from flattened epithelial cells that cover the ovarian surface or that line inclusion cysts. During malignant transformation, differentExpand

Undifferentiated Carcinoma of the Endometrium
Undifferentiated carcinoma arising in the endometrium is considered a rare neoplasm with only a few studies published thus far. This limited number of studies is most likely a reflection of theExpand

Omental Adipose Tissue–Derived Stromal Cells Promote Vascularization and Growth of Endometrial Tumors
Purpose: Adipose tissue contains a population of tumor-tropic mesenchymal progenitors, termed adipose stromal cells (ASC), which engraft in neighboring tumors to form supportive tumor stroma. WeExpand

Wolffian duct tumors: case reports and review of the literature.
BACKGROUND Female adnexal tumors of probable wolffian origin are a distinctive epithelial neoplasm arising from the remnants of the mesonephric duct. Although generally considered a tumor of lowExpand

Microsatellite instability and alteration of the expression of hMLH1 and hMSH2 in ovarian clear cell carcinoma.
Microsatellite instability (MSI) is commonly seen in tumors associated with the hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer syndrome and is caused by defects in the DNA mismatch repair genes. MSI hasExpand

Genomic Loss of Tumor Suppressor miRNA-204 Promotes Cancer Cell Migration and Invasion by Activating AKT/mTOR/Rac1 Signaling and Actin Reorganization
Increasing evidence suggests that chromosomal regions containing microRNAs are functionally important in cancers. Here, we show that genomic loci encoding miR-204 are frequently lost in multipleExpand

Placental-site trophoblastic tumors: a case of resistant pulmonary metastasis
Background A 52-year-old woman whose last known pregnancy was 12 years before presentation was diagnosed with mixed trophoblastic tumor that included placental-site trophoblastic tumor, epithelioidExpand

Role of decreased levels of lipid phosphate phosphatase-1 in accumulation of lysophosphatidic acid in ovarian cancer.
The levels of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) are consistently elevated in the ascites of ovarian cancer patients, suggesting that ovarian cancer cells are exposed to an LPA replete environment. LPAExpand

HER‐2 receptor expression, localization, and activation in colorectal cancer cell lines and human tumors
The HER‐2/neu oncogene encodes a 185 kD protein that is phosphorylated upon ligand binding to other HER/erbB members and regulates cell growth and differentiation. Given that HER‐2 receptor blockadeExpand
