OBJECTIVE To clarify the frequency of pregnancy complicated by ovarian endometriosis and to investigate the size change and outcome of ovarian endometriosis during pregnancy. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Departments of obstetrics and gynecology of the Osaka University and Izumiotsu Municipal Hospitals of Osaka, Japan. PATIENT(S) Women who(More)
PURPOSE High-grade serous ovarian cancers are heterogeneous not only in terms of clinical outcome but also at the molecular level. Our aim was to establish a novel risk classification system based on a gene expression signature for predicting overall survival, leading to suggesting novel therapeutic strategies for high-risk patients. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN(More)
LAMP3 (DC-LAMP, TSC403, CD208) was originally isolated as a gene specifically expressed in lung tissues. LAMP3 is located on a chromosome 3q segment that is frequently amplified in some human cancers, including uterine cervical cancer. Because two other members of the LAMP family of lysosomal membrane glycoproteins, LAMP1 and LAMP2, were previously(More)
To prospectively assess the efficacy of 3-T magnetic resonance (MR) imaging using the three-dimensional turbo spin-echo T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted technique (3D-TSE/DW) compared with that of conventional imaging using the two-dimensional turbo spin-echo T2-weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced technique (2D-TSE/DCE) for the preoperative staging of(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 3.0 T and 1.5 T in the same patients for preoperative evaluation of endometrial carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty consecutive patients with endometrial carcinoma underwent MRI at both 3.0 T and 1.5 T as well as surgery. Quantitative and qualitative analyses were performed. Two(More)
Serum tumor markers have a major role in the screening, diagnosis, and monitoring of most of the gynecologic cancers. Ovarian cancer is one of the deadliest of the group because it is so frequently asymptomatic until it has advanced to an untreatable stage. Even serum cancer antigen-125 (CA-125), clinically one of the most reliable serum markers for ovarian(More)
Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the ovary is known to be highly resistant to platinum-based chemotherapy. The purpose of our study was to identify a candidate protein that is associated with chemoresistance of CCC and to investigate the specific mechanism of chemoresistance conferred by the identified protein. Enhanced expression of Annexin A4 (Anx A4) was(More)
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS B7-H4 (DD-O110), a member of the B7 family, negatively regulates T cell-mediated immune response. Previous studies have shown that B7-H4 is highly expressed in endometrioid ovarian cancers with relatively low levels of expression in normal ovary which was confirmed by Western blot. The present study was designed to localize B7-H4(More)
We previously reported that invasive squamous cell carcinomas of the uterine cervix are of monoclonal composition. In the current study, we extended our previous work to determine the clonal composition of cases of high-grade squamous intra-epithelial lesion (HSIL). Clonal analysis targeting the HUMARA locus was performed on cervical tissue from 9 cases, 8(More)
Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecologic malignancy. It appears that the vast majority of what seem to be primary epithelial ovarian and primary peritoneal carcinomas is, in fact, secondary from the fimbria, the most distal part of the fallopian tube. Treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer is based on the combination of cytoreductive surgery and(More)
