Ovarian epithelial cancer

Common Name(s)

Ovarian epithelial cancer

Ovarian cancer, the leading cause of death from gynecologic malignancy, is characterized by advanced presentation with loco-regional dissemination in the peritoneal cavity and the rare incidence of visceral metastases ({6:Chi et al., 2001}). These typical features relate to the biology of the disease, which is a principal determinant of outcome ({1:Auersperg et al., 2001}). Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common form and encompasses 5 major histologic subtypes: papillary serous, endometrioid, mucinous, clear cell, and transitional cell. Epithelial ovarian cancer arises as a result of genetic alterations sustained by the ovarian surface epithelium ({45:Stany et al., 2008}; {44:Soslow, 2008}).

EVALUATION THE EXPRESSION OF THREE GENES TO EPITHELIAL OVARIAN CANCER RISK IN CHINESE POPULATION.
 

Author(s): Ju Huang, Hao Lin, Ming En Lin

Journal:

 

Ovarian cancer is associated with poor survival, because patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage of the disease, and in addition, tumors develop chemoresistance, which carries a poor prognosis for the patient.

Decreased levels of baseline and drug-induced tubulin polymerisation are hallmarks of resistance to taxanes in ovarian cancer cells and are associated with epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition.
 

Author(s): George E Duran, Yan C Wang, François Moisan, E Brian Francisco, Branimir I Sikic

Journal: Br. J. Cancer. 2017 May;116(10):1318-1328.

 

ABCB1 expression is uncommon in ovarian cancers in the clinical setting so we investigated non-MDR mechanisms of resistance to taxanes.
