ABSTRACT

Introducción: La displasia epitelial oral (DEO) es la presencia de alteraciones celulares y tisulares, lo que puede significar una etapa anterior al desarrollo del cáncer. Múltiples marcadores han sido considerados para estimar su potencial neoplásico y evolución a carcinoma, incluyendo a la molécula p53, se considera como participe de diversos fenómenos de la homeostasis celular. Objetivo: Determinar la relación entre la inmunoexpresión de p53 DO-7 y PAb 240 con el grado de severidad de la displasia epitelial oral. Material y métodos: Se analizaron nueve muestras de DEO (tres para cada grado de severidad). La inmunoexpresión de p53 tipo silvestre (DO-7) y forma mutada (PAb 240), fue determinada a través de ensayo de inmunohistoquímica por peroxidasa. Se obtuvieron la media y desviación estándar y se realizó la prueba χ2 (p < 0.05). Resultados: La edad media fue de 65.7 ± 11.4 años, la zona anatómica con mayor presencia de DEO es el borde lateral de la lengua. Ocho de nueve muestras fueron positivas para DO-7 y solo dos para PAb 240. Conclusiones: Nuestros resultados indican que, aunque la expresión de p53 DO-7 podría estar relacionada parcialmente con la patogénesis de la displasia epitelial, no todas las displasias presentaron la forma mutada de p53 (PAb 240). Lo cual coincide con el comportamiento biológico incierto de las displasias al poder permanecer sin cambios, involucionar o transformarse


Introduction: Oral epithelial dysplasia (OED) is the presence of cellular and tissue alterations, which may mean a stage prior to the development of cancer. Multiple markers have been considered to estimate its pathogenic potential and evolution to neoplasms, including the p53 molecule, considered as participating in various phenomena of cellular homeostasis. Objective: To determine the relationship between the immunoexpression of p53 DO-7 and PAb 240 with the degree of severity of oral epithelial dysplasia. Material and methods: Nine OED samples were analyzed (three for each degree of severity). The immunoexpression of wild-type p53 (DO-7) and mutated form (PAb 240) was determined through a peroxidase immunohistochemical assay. The mean and standard deviation were obtained, and χ2 test (p < 0.05) were performed. Results: The mean age was 65.7 ± 11.4 years, with a greater presence of OED in the anatomical area of the lateral side of the tongue. Eight out of nine samples were positive for DO-7 and only two for PAb 240. Conclusions: Our results indicate that, although the expression of p53 DO-7 could be partially related to the pathogenesis of epithelial dysplasia, not all dysplasias presented the mutated form of p53 (PAb 240), which coincides that not all dysplasias have a potential for malignant transformation and that could be related to other oncogenic mechanisms (AU)

ABSTRACT

Contexto: O fibrohistiocitoma maligno é um sarcoma de tecidos moles muito agressivo, com rara apresentação limitada à pele e tecido subcutâneo em face. O diagnóstico é anatomopatológico com auxílio da imuno-histoquímica. Descrição do caso: Este artigo relata o caso de um paciente com diagnóstico de fibrohistiocitoma maligno restrito à face com boa resposta terapêutica após exérese cirúrgica. Discussão: Tendo em vista a raridade dessa afecção, dificuldade diagnóstica devido ao quadro inespecífico e com rápida evolução, é importante lembrar desse possível diagnóstico e atuar precocemente. Conclusões: O diagnóstico precoce interfere de forma significativa na evolução do quadro, sendo necessária a manutenção do acompanhamento oncológico e dermatológico com o intuito de detectar precocemente recidivas locais e metástases a distância.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Purpose: To identify the lymphatic vessels in orbital specimens from human cadavers using light microscopy and immunohistochemical analysis. Methods: A postmortem study included 10 orbital specimens from 10 human cadavers. The orbital specimens were obtained no later than 12 hours after death. The orbital specimens were dissected into lacrimal gland, optic nerve, fat tissue, and oculomotor muscles. The histologic criteria to qualify as a lymphatic vessel were thin-walled channels of endothelium without a well-developed basal membrane and with an erythrocyte-free, irregular lumen. The immunohistochemical criteria were irregularly shaped, thin-walled vessels with an erythrocyte-free, irregular lumen and immunopositivity for podoplanin D2-40. Results: The lacrimal gland, optic nerve, fat tissue, and extraocular muscle sections were positively stained with podoplanin D2-40. Conclusions: This study demonstrated lymphatic vessels in the human orbit, more precisely, in the lacrimal gland, dura mater of the optic nerve, adipose tissue, and extrinsic oculomotor muscles via light microscopy and immunohistochemistry.(AU)

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Purpose: This study aimed to determine the role of vitamin D receptor in the pathogenesis of pterygium. The vitamin D receptor eexpression levels in pterygium tissue, blood vitamin D levels, and frequency of selected vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms (BsmI, FokI, and TaqI) were compared between patients with pterygium and healthy participants. Methods: The study included patients with pterygiumeee (n=50) and healthy volunteers (n=50). The serum vitamin D levels were measured for both groups. Immunohistochemical staining for vitamin D receptor ewas performed on sections obtained from the pterygium and adjacent healthy conjunctival tissues of the same individuals. The genomic existence of vitamin D receptor epolymorphisms (BsmI, FokI, and TaqI) were analyzed in DNA obtained from venous blood of participants using polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism methods. Results: There was no difference found between the serum vitamin D levels of patients with pterygium and healthy controls. However, tissue expression of vitamin D receptor was higher in the pterygium endothelial cells of micro-vessels (p=0.002), subepithelial stromal (p=0.04), and intravascular inflammatory cells (p=0.0001), in comparison with the adjacent healthy conjunctival tissue. Moreover, while the BBtt haplotype was 2-fold higher, the bbTt haplotype was 2.5-fold lower, and the BbTT haplotype was 2.25-fold lower in the control group than in the pterygium group (p<0.001). Conclusions: Vitamin D serum levels did not differ between the healthy and pterygium groups. Vitamin D receptor expression was increased in the pterygium tissue versus the adjacent healthy tissue. However, vitamin D receptor polymorphism analysis in patients with pterygium did not reveal any significant difference in BsmI, FokI, or TaqI polymorphisms in comparison with the healthy volunteers.(AU)


RESUMO Objetivo: Determinar o papel do receptor da vitamina D na patogênese do pterígio. Os níveis de expressão do receptor da vitamina D no tecido do pterígio, os níveis sanguíneos de vitamina D e a frequência de alguns polimorfismos do gene do receptor da vitamina D (BsmI, FokI e TaqI) foram comparados entre pacientes com pterígio e participantes saudáveis. Métodos: Foram incluídos pacientes com pterígio (n=50) e voluntários saudáveis (n=50). Os níveis séricos de vitamina D foram medidos em ambos os grupos. Foi feita uma coloração imuno-histoquímica para o receptor da vitamina D em cortes obtidos do pterígio e dos tecidos conjuntivais saudáveis adjacentes dos mesmos indivíduos. A existência de polimorfismos do receptor da vitamina D (BsmI, FokI e TaqI) no genoma foi analisada em DNA obtido do sangue venoso dos participantes, usando métodos de Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) e RFLP. Resultados: Não foi observada nenhuma diferença entre os níveis séricos de vitamina D dos pacientes com pterígio e os dos controles saudáveis. Entretanto, a expressão tissular do receptor da vitamina D foi maior nas células endoteliais dos microvasos do pterígio (p=0,002), nas células estromais sub-epiteliais (p=0,04) e nas células inflamatórias intravasculares (p=0,0001), quando comparada à expressão no tecido conjuntival saudável adjacente. Além disso, embora o haplótipo BBtt tenha sido duas vezes mais frequente, o haplótipo bbTt foi 2,5 vezes menos frequente e o haplótipo BbTT foi 2,25 vezes menos frequente no grupo de controle do que no grupo com pterígio (p<0,001). Conclusões: Os níveis séricos de vitamina D não apresentaram diferenças entre o grupo de pessoas saudáveis e o com pterígio. A expressão do receptor da vitamina D mostrou-se maior no grupo com pterígio do que no tecido saudável adjacente. Entretanto, a análise dos polimorfismos do receptor da vitamina D nos pacientes com pterígio não revelou qualquer diferença significativa nos polimorfismos BsmI, FokI ou TaqI em comparação com os voluntários saudáveis.(AU)

ABSTRACT

In this study, against streptozotocin (STZ) induced diapetic nephropathy (DN); it is aimed to investigate the use of thymoquinone (TQ) and ß-aminoisobutyric acid (BAIBA) and to compare the effects of these agents. With random selection of 35 male rats, five groups (seven rats in each group) were constituted as follows: Control, STZ, STZ + TQ, STZ + BAIBA, STZ + TQ + BAIBA. In the STZ group; body weight, glutathione (GSH) and insulin levels decreased, relative kidney weight, malondialdehyde (MDA), glucose, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine (Cr) levels were increased. Also, in kidney tissue; histopathological changes (such as thickening of the capsular, glomerular and tubular basement membranes, increased mesangial matrix amount, increased cytoplasmic vacuolization in some of the tubular epithelial cells, increased tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) expression, and inflammatory cell infiltrations in interstitial tissue) were detected. It was observed that these changes occurring after diabetes mellitus (DM) reversed significantly in TQ, BAIBA and TQ + BAIBA groups.


En este estudio, contra la nefropatía diapética (ND) inducida por estreptozotocina (STZ); tiene como objetivo investigar el uso de timoquinona (TQ) y ácido ß-aminoisobutírico (BAIBA) y comparar los efectos de estos agentes. Con la selección aleatoria de 35 ratas macho, se constituyeron cinco grupos (siete ratas en cada grupo) como sigue: Control, STZ, STZ + TQ, STZ + BAIBA, STZ + TQ + BAIBA. En el grupo STZ; el peso corporal, los niveles de glutatión (GSH) y de insulina disminuyeron, el peso relativo de los riñones, el malondialdehído (MDA), la glucosa, el nitrógeno ureico en sangre (BUN) y los niveles de creatinina (Cr) aumentaron. Además, en tejido renal; se detectaron cambios histopatológicos (como engrosamiento de las membranas basales capsular, glomerular y tubular, aumento de la cantidad de matriz mesangial, aumento de la vacuolización citoplasmática en algunas de las células epiteliales tubulares, aumento de la expresión del factor de necrosis tumoral alfa (TNF-α) e infiltraciones de células inflamatorias en tejido intersticial). Se observó que estos cambios que ocurren después de la diabetes mellitus (DM) se revirtieron significativamente en los grupos TQ, BAIBA y TQ + BAIBA.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Myogenic regulatory factors (MRFs) such as MyoD, Myf6 and Myf5 play a vital role in the growth and development of muscles. Jeju Native Pig (JNP) is the top ranker in Korea amongst the indigenous livestock reared for meat purpose. Few studies covering transcript abundance of the MRFs and related to their co-expression with Pax7 in JNP have been conducted. Despite having better quality pork, JNP does not have a comparative growth rate with respect to western breeds. Therefore, the present study was designed with the objective to study the relative transcript levels of MRFs in the postnatal myogenesis of longissimus dorsi muscles in JNP and Berkshire breeds. RESULTS: Relative transcript levels were analyzed by qRT-PCR and blot expression analysis through Western blotting. Immunocytochemistry was performed to analyze their expressions at cellular levels. ToppCluster aided in the analysis of gene ontology of biological processes. The quantitative transcript levels of MyoD and Pax7 were significantly (P < 0.05) higher in Berkshire than in JNP. Myotube formation was observed under the co-expression of MyoD and Pax7. ToppCluster helped in the understanding of the linking of biological processes of the MRFs with the different signaling pathways. MyBPH had significantly (P < 0.05) high transcript levels during the chosen age groups in JNP than Berkshire. CONCLUSIONS: The current study can be helpful in understanding the genetic basis for myogenesis in postnatal stage. Moreover, it can act as stepping stone for the identification of marker genes related to body growth and meat quality in JNP.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent primary cancer of the liver and cirrhosis is considered a pre-malignant disease. In this context, the evolutionary sequence from low grade dysplastic nodule and high grade dysplastic nodule (HGDN) to early HCC and advanced HCC has been studied. The differential diagnosis between HGDN and early HCC is still a challenge, especially in needle biopsies OBJECTIVE: To evaluate an immunohistochemistry panel to differentiate dysplastic nodules and HCC. METHODS: Patients with cirrhosis who underwent surgical resection or liver transplantation were included. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy for the diagnosis of neoplasia were analyzed by evaluating five markers: heat shock protein 70, glypican 3, glutamine synthetase, clathrin heavy chain and beta-catenin. P≤0.05 was considered statistically significant. RESULTS: One hundred and fifty-six nodules were included; of these, 57 were HCC, 14 HGDN, 18 low grade dysplastic nodules and 67 regenerative macronodules. Sensitivity of HCC diagnosis was 64.9% for glypican 3 and 77.2% for glutamine syntetase, while specificity was 96.0% and 96.0% respectively. When the panel of four markers was considered (excluding beta catenin), the specificity ranged from 87.9% for one positive marker to 100% for at least three markers. The best accuracy for HCC diagnosis was obtained with at least two positive markers, which was associated with a sensitivity of 82.5% and specificity of 99%. CONCLUSION: Differential diagnosis of dysplastic nodules and HCC by morphological criteria can be challenging. Immunomarkers are useful and should be used for the differential diagnosis between HCC and HGDN.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: O carcinoma hepatocelular (CHC) é o câncer primário do fígado mais frequente e a cirrose é considerada uma doença pré-maligna. Nesse contexto, a sequência evolutiva do nódulo displásico de baixo grau e nódulo displásico de alto grau (NDAG) para CHC precoce e CHC avançado tem sido estudada. O diagnóstico diferencial entre NDAG e CHC precoce ainda é um desafio, principalmente em biópsias por agulha. OBJETIVO: Avaliar um painel de imunohistoquímica para diferenciar nódulos displásicos de CHC. MÉTODOS: Foram incluídos pacientes com cirrose submetidos à ressecção cirúrgica ou transplante de fígado. A sensibilidade, especificidade e acurácia para o diagnóstico da neoplasia foram analisadas avaliando cinco marcadores: proteína de choque térmico 70kDa, glipican 3, glutamina sintetase, clatrina de cadeia pesada e beta-catenina. P≤0,05 foi considerado estatisticamente significativo. RESULTADOS: Cento e cinquenta e seis nódulos foram incluídos; destes, 57 eram CHC, 14 NDAG, 18 nódulos displásicos de baixo grau e 67 macronódulos regenerativos. A sensibilidade do diagnóstico de CHC foi de 64,9% para glipican 3 e 77,2% para glutamina sintetase, enquanto a especificidade foi de 96,0% e 96,0%, respectivamente. Quando o painel de quatro marcadores foi considerado (excluindo beta catenina), a especificidade variou de 87,9% para um marcador positivo a 100% para pelo menos três marcadores. A melhor acurácia para o diagnóstico de CHC foi obtida com pelo menos dois marcadores positivos, o que foi associado a uma sensibilidade de 82,5% e especificidade de 99%. CONCLUSÃO: O diagnóstico diferencial de nódulos displásicos e CHC por critérios morfológicos pode ser desafiador. Imunomarcadores são úteis e devem ser usados para o diagnóstico diferencial entre CHC e NDAG.

ABSTRACT

The osteosarcoma (OSA) is the most diagnosed primary bone cancer in canine patients. This work reports a case of a canine, six years old, mongrel, female, intact, with an OSA in the hard palate. Physical examination detected a firm mass in the palate. Thoracic radiographs, hematological and biochemical exams, histopathological exams and computed tomography were requested. A chondroblastic OSA was diagnosed and the tumor was characterized by immunohistochemistry. There was never evidence of metastasis in this case. The treatment consisted of the combination of conventional chemotherapy, metronomic chemotherapy, and palliative care, aiming at greater survival and well-being of the patient since surgical excision was not possible due to the location and extension of the tumor. Osteogenic sarcomas of the hard palate are rarely seen and described in the literature. In this article we present a characterization of the osteosarcoma with uncommon localization in the hard palate.(AU)


O osteossarcoma (OSA) é a neoplasia óssea primária mais diagnosticada em pacientes caninos. Este trabalho relata o caso de um canino, com seis anos de idade, sem raça definida, fêmea, não castrado, apresentando OSA em região de palato duro. Ao exame clínico, constatou-se uma massa de consistência firme em região palatina. Além do exame clínico, foram solicitadas radiografias torácicas, exames hematológicos e bioquímicos, exames histopatológicos e tomografia computadorizada. Fora então dado o diagnóstico de OSA condroblástico, e o tumor foi caracterizado pela imuno-histoquímica. Não foram observadas evidências de metástases nesse caso. O tratamento instituído consistiu na combinação de quimioterapia convencional, quimioterapia metronômica e cuidados paliativos, almejando maior sobrevida e bem-estar do paciente, uma vez que a excisão cirúrgica não foi possível devido à localização e à extensão do tumor. Neste artigo, apresentou-se uma caracterização do osteossarcoma com localização incomum no palato duro.(AU)

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCCIÓN: El Departamento de Equipo Funcional de Patología Quirúrgica y Necropsia del Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Neoplásicas, en relación a nuevos reactivos de inmunohistoquímica para diagnóstico oncológico de tumores del sistema nervioso central, ha solicitado la opinión técnica de la UFETS. 2. Existen neoplasias del sistema nervioso central que presentan una pobre respuesta al tratamiento estandarizado y un peor pronóstico, por lo cual ameritan un diagnóstico eficaz y temprano. Los marcadores para inmunohistoquímica H3 K27M, H3 K27m3, GAB-1, YAP-1, H3.3G34R y MAP-2 permitirían un diagnóstico más eficaz e incluso influiría en su tratamiento y seguimiento. Estrategia de búsqueda de información: a) Pregunta Clínica: Sección A: SNC: En la población con tumores de SNC, ¿Cuál es la utilidad de los marcadores de H3 K27m3, GAB-1, YAP-1, H3.3G34R y MAP-2 como diagnóstico oncológico en tumores del SNC? b) Recolecciòn de los Manuscritos a Revisar: Tipos de estudios: La estrategia de búsqueda sistemática de información científica para el desarrollo del presente informe se realizó siguiendo las recomendaciones de la Pirámide jerárquica de la evidencia propuesta por Haynes y se consideró los siguientes estudios: Sumarios y guías de práctica clínica. Revisiones sistemáticas y/o meta-análisis. Ensayos Controlados Aleatorizados (ECA) Estudios Observacionales (cohortes, caso y control, descriptivos) No hubo limitaciones acerca de la fecha de publicación o el idioma para ningún estudio. DISCUSION: Tomando los criterios para un marco de valor de la Health Technology Assessment International (2018)13 para la toma de decisiones y formulación de la recomendación, se encontró una serie de estudios de los cuales no se encontraron revisiones sistemáticas ni estudios diagnósticos. La calidad de evidencia evaluada con metodología GRADE fue baja en todos los estudios evaluados, considerando el diseño de estudio observacional, y por el pequeño tamaño de las muestras estudiadas. Esta valoración indica que los resultados obtenidos en el mundo real por la aplicación de estas tecnologías pueden ser significativamente diferentes a los resultados diagnósticos de los estudios presentados. Los estudios que evaluaron el H3K27M y H3K27me3 evaluaron la utilidad diagnóstica de los anticuerpos para detección de estas mutaciones. El diagnóstico de glioma de línea media con mutación K27M permite reconocer una entidad de peor pronóstico y sólo se logra con la aplicación de estos marcadores. Si bien existe una cantidad limitada de evidencia, los estudios llevados por Tina Huang y col. evaluaron el rendimiento diagnóstico de estos marcadores comparándolos con estudios de mutación en muestras de tejido con diagnóstico de glioma (n=69) y tejido sano (n=4) en población pediátrica. Otro estudio por Sriram Venneti y col. tomaron como población 290 muestras de cáncer con mutación H3F3A K27M conocida. Los estudios reportan una sensibilidad 100% y una especificidad 100% para el marcador H3K27M y Sriram Venneti reportó una sensibilidad 100% y especificidad 98% para H3K27me3. Ambos marcadores cuentan con una utilidad diagnóstica importante su aplicación permitiría diagnosticar precozmente una enfermedad con mal pronóstico en edad pediátrica y adulta. El GAB-1 y el YAP-1 intervienen en el proceso de desarrollo del cáncer a nivel de sistema nervioso central. La detección de ambas mutaciones por inmnohistoquimica permite la clasificación molecular del meduloblastoma en SHH, WNT y no-SHH/WNT. El determinar el subtipo molecular es importante ya que cada uno cuenta con un pronóstico diferente y su reconocimiento permitiría realizar un mejor diagnóstico y hasta influir en el tipo de tratamiento que recibiría. David W. Ellison y su equipo reconocer al meduloblastoma como una enfermedad heterogenea y a través de inmunohistoquímica determinan los subtipos de meduloblastoma en una cohorte de 235 muestras en pacientes de un rango de edad 0.4 ­ 52 años. Los subtipos moleculares SHH, WNT, y no SHH/WNT correspondían al 31%, 14%, y 55% de los casos. Hye Sook Min y col. evaluaron la detección de mutaciones a través de anticuerpos para inmunohistoquímica en cada subtipo molecular de meduloblastoma. El GAB-1 fue hallado en el 100% de los subtipos SHH y en sólo el 25% del subtipo WNT. El YAP-1 se encontró en el 50% de los subtipos WNT, el 80%de SHH y sólo el 2% en los subtipos no-SHH/WNT. Ambos marcadores son relevantes para poder clasificar adecuadamente cada subtipo molecular de meduloblastoma. Las mutaciones H3.3G34R y MAP-2 están asociadas con la progresión de enfermedad oncológica. Farhana Haque y col. evaluaron la eficacia de la inmunotinción para la detección de H3.3G34R en una cohorte de 22 muestras de tumores incluidos en parafina con mutación H3.3 G34R conocida. 17 eran tumores supratentoriales de alto grado, 2 gangliomas anaplasicos, 2 oligoastrocitomas grado III y 1 glioma de alto grado. La IHC detectó con éxito la proteína mutante correspondiente en todos los casos (11/11 G34R). Los resultados demostraron una concordancia adecuada entre estudio diagnóstico con inmunohistoquímica y estudio mutacional correspondiente. Se reportó una sensibilidad del 100% y especificidad del 98% para diagnóstico. Con respecto al estudio de inmunohistoquímica del MAP-2, Ingmar Blümcke y su grupo de estudio demostraron que el análisis por inmunohistoquímica presentó una sensibilidad del 98% y una alta especificidad para la detección de esta mutación, la cual está asociada con la progresión de tumores astrocíticos de alto grado en el sistema nervioso central. En este momento el INEN no cuenta con marcadores que puedan diagnosticar los gliomas de línea media con mutación K27M, una entidad de pobre repuesta al tratamiento y peor pronóstico y que por ende ameritaría un diagnóstico precoz. De la misma forma, la clasificación molecular de los meduloblastomas es algo importante. Cada subtipo molecular cuenta con un pronóstico diferente lo cual podría impactar en el tratamiento y la forma de seguimiento de los pacientes. Tampoco se cuenta con una forma de detección de la mutación 3.3 G34R y el MAP-2 cuenta con una alta eficacia diagnóstica para el diagnóstico de astrocitomas de alto grado. Ninguno de estos procedimientos diagnósticos está siendo realizado en este momento por lo cual la aplicación de estos marcadores supone un impacto positivo al considerar la población de pacientes diagnosticados que contarían con un tratamiento adecuado. Todos estos marcadores se integrarían al arsenal diagnóstico, sin reemplazar otro marcador que ya se esté aplicando en el INEN. El impacto económico de esta prueba para el INEN es incierto y es necesario realizar un análisis de impacto presupuestario para estimar cuantitativamente el gasto sanitario del uso de esta prueba en la población con linfomas. CONCLUSIONES: Algunas patologías oncológicas del sistema nervioso centran tienen una mala respuesta al tratamiento convencional, lo cual les da un peor pronóstico y un curso más agressivo. Los marcadores H3 K27M y H3 K27m3 presentan una alta sensibilidad y especificidad para el diagnóstico de gliomas de la línea media con mutación K27M. Esta entidad cuenta con una peor respuesta a tratamiento y peor pronóstico. Su detección temprana podría permitir un mejor tratamiento y optimizar las pautas de seguimiento. Los marcadores H3.3G34R y MAP-2 reconocen mutaciones que intervienen con el desarrollo del cáncer. Ambos cuentan con una alta sensibilidad y especificidad para el diagnóstico de tumores astrocíticos de alto grado. Los marcadores GAB-1 y YAP-1 se utilizan para determinar los subtipos moleculares de meduloblastoma, teniendo el GAB-1 una sensibilidad alta para el tipo SHH. Cada subtipo molecular de meduloblastoma cuenta con un pronóstico diferente lo cual podría influenciar en la forma de tratamiento que recibirían. Los marcadores de inmunohistoquímica permitirían un eficaz y temprano diagnóstico, lo cual influiría positivamente en el pronóstico de los pacientes con estas patologías, las cuales hasta la fecha no han sido diagnosticadas adecuadamente.

ABSTRACT

Extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma is a rare event, and extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma of the thyroid gland is even rarer. It has non-specific clinical manifestation and difficulty in early diagnosis. The diagnosis mainly depends on histology and immunohistochemistry. It possesses the features of high malignancy, high rate of local recurrence, and distant metastasis. Currently, the aggressive multimodal treatment contains surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. This study presented a case of extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma arising in the thyroid gland of a 30-year-old woman, who presented with supraclavicular mass and sense of dysphagia obstruction in Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University in 2018. Imaging studies demonstrated a cystic-solid mass in inferior of the left leaf of thyroid gland and in the posterior of the trachea and esophagus. The patient underwent localized tumor resection. The pathological diagnosis revealed that it was a small round cell tumor, and the immunohistochemistry results were considered to be extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma. Subsequently, the patient was given chemotherapy and local radiation therapy. There was no evidence of tumor recurrence or metastasis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of immunohistochemistry (IHC) for detecting common epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to estimate the cost-effectiveness of IHC testing.@*METHODS@#A total of 208 NSCLC patients were included in the trial, and the EGFR mutation status in the patients were detected by PCR and IHC. Two mutation-specific antibodies against the most common exon 19 deletion (clone SP111) and exon 21 L858R mutation (clone SP125) were tested by using automated immunostainer. A cost-effectiveness analysis model was built for the analysis of optimal detection scheme.@*RESULTS@#With a cutoff value of IHC 1+, the overall sensitivity and specificity of the IHC-based method compared with the PCR-based method were 81.7% (95% CI 72.4% to 89.0%) and 94.7% (95% CI 92.6% to 99.5%), respectively. EGFR 19del mutation was detected by SP111 antibody with a sensitivity of 65.9% (95% CI 49.4% to 79.9%) and specificity of 98.8% (95% CI 95.7% to 99.9%). EGFR L858R mutation was detected by SP125 antibody with a sensitivity of 94.2% (95% CI 84.1% to 98.8%) and specificity of 99.4% (95% CI 96.5% to 100%). The IHC and PCR cost ratio needed to be 1-to-3 or more in our patients to economically justify before the use of IHC.@*CONCLUSIONS@#The study confirms an excellent specificity with fairly good sensitivity of IHC and mutation-specific antibodies for common EGFR mutations. It is cost-effective to use IHC method to detect EGFR mutation first when the IHC and PCR cost ratio is 1-to-3 or more in Chinese populations.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the predictive value of methyltransferase EZH2 expression level on the clinical efficacy and long-term prognosis of patients with primary gastrointestinal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (PGI-DLBCL).@*METHODS@#161 patients with newly treated PGI-DLBCL in our hospital from August 2013 to July 2019 were selected. The expression level of EZH2 protein was detected by immunohistochemistry, and the short-term efficacy and long-term survival differences of patients with different levels of EZH2 were compared. The predictive values of EZH2 expression level on the short-term efficacy and long-term prognosis of PGI-DLBCL patients were analyzed by Log-rank test and COX risk proportional regression model. Chi-square test and Logistic regression analysis were used to analyze the influencing factors of EZH2 expression level.@*RESULTS@#The complete response (CR) and overal response(OR) rates of those with high EZH2 expression were significantly lower than those with low EZH2 expression (P<0.001). The median OS and PFS of EZH2 high-level and low-level expression group was 37, 31 months and 49, 42 months, respectively. The cumulative OS and PFS rates of the high-level expression group were significantly lower than those of the low-level expression group, and the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05). The high expression levels of H3K27me3, EZH2, BCL-2, BCL-6, c-MYC were closely related to the shortening of OS and PFS, while the high expression level of Ki-67 was closely related to the shortening of OS (P<0.05), of which the high expression levels of H3K27me3, EZH2, BCL-2, and BCL-6 were independent risk factors for shortening of OS and PFS. The expression level of EZH2 was positively correlated with the expression level of H3K27me3, BCL-6, c-MYC and Ki-67 (r=0.741, r=0.837, r=0.809, r=0.772), and the high expression levels of H3K27me3, BCL-6 and Ki-67 were independent factors influencing the high expression of EZH2.@*CONCLUSION@#In patients with PGI-DLBCL, the high expression of EZH2 significantly reduces the short-term CR and OR rates, which is an independent risk factor for the shortening of long-term OS and PFS rates, and it is independently related to the high expression of H3K27me3 and BCL6.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the clinicopathological features and prognosis of chromophobe renal cell carcinoma(ChRCC). Methods The clinical and pathological data of 126 patients with ChRCC treated in Cancer Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences were retrospectively analyzed. Results The patients included 64 males and 62 females,with the age of 22-80 years(median of 52 years).The tumor was located on the right side in 70 cases and on the left side in 56 cases.Ultrasound,CT or magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)were performed.Of the 110 cases receiving ultrasound examination,63,23,13,10,and 1 cases showed hypoecho,hyperecho,isoecho,uneven or mixed echo,and dark hypoecho,respectively.Color Doppler flow imaging showed no blood flow signal in 42 cases and low blood flow signal in 60 cases out of 68 cases with blood flow signal.Among the 54 cases receiving CT,50 cases showed equal density or low density and 4 cases showed high density with clear boundary.The enhanced scanning showed mild to moderate uniform or non-uniform reinforcement,mostly below the renal parenchyma,and still showed reinforcement in the delayed period.Among the 97 cases receiving MRI,96 cases showed hypo-or isointense signals and 1 case showed hyperintense signal in T1 weighted images;71 cases showed hyper-or isointense signals and 26 cases showed hypo-or isointense signals in T2 weighted images;93 cases showed hyperintense signals with obvious limited diffusion and 4 cases showed unobvious limited diffusion in diffusion weighted images.Mild to moderate uniform or non-uniform reinforcement was observed in most of the enhanced scans.All the 126 patients underwent surgical treatment,including 64 cases of nephron sparing surgery and 62 cases of radical surgery.Pathological examinations confirmed ChRCC for all the patients,including 91 cases of T1N0M0,15 cases of T2N0M0,and 20 cases of T3N0M0.The immunohistochemical assay demonstrated the positive expression rate of 48.2%(54/112)for CD10,92.3%(96/104)for CD117,8.0%(9/112)for vimentin,85.6%(95/111)for CK7,and 97.6%(83/85)for colloidal iron.Conclusions ChRCC is less common,with low level of malignancy and good prognosis.Since the clinical symptoms of ChRCC are not typical,MRI is an important means of imaging differential diagnosis,and the disease can be confirmed depending on pathological diagnosis.Surgery is the preferred treatment method,and currently there is no standard treatment regimen for metastatic patients.

ABSTRACT

El carcinoma colorrectal (CCR) es de las primeras causas de mortalidad del mundo, presentando Guatemala una incidencia anual de 7.4/millón de habitantes. El síndrome de Lynch se caracteriza clínicamente por un inicio temprano del CCR con lesiones causadas por alteraciones en genes que codifican proteínas reparadoras.Los microsatélites son regiones del ADN con una unidad repetitiva de uno o más nucleótidos y son susceptibles a errores durante la replicación de ADN de los enterocitos. Existe un sistema de reparación que corrige estos errores. Cuando las proteínas reparadoras de este sistema están mutadas o ausentes, dichos errores del ADN persisten. Estas proteínas reparadoras se expresan en el núcleo de las células colónicas normales y son detecta-bles utilizando estudios de inmunohistoquímica (IHQ). Los genes MLH1 y MSH2 pueden encontrarse mutados en el 90% de los casos de cáncer colorrectal y el resto corresponde a MSH6 y PMS2. Esta vía oncogénica se caracteriza por alteración del sistema de reparación de errores durante la replicación del ADN, controlado por los genes MMR (mismatch repair), principalmente MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 y PMS2. Se realizó una revisión extensa de la literatura en PubMed, Springer y JAMA, usando las palabras clave: fenotipo de CCR, Síndrome de Lynch e inestabilidad microsatelital, detectándose 55 artículos. El objetivo de esta revisión es describir la importancia de la identificación del fenotipo del CCR por medios de IHQ y de pruebas moleculares para el eficaz tratamiento con inmunoterapia anti-PD1/PD-L1.


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading causes of mortality in the world. In Guatemala it's an important cause of morbidity (7.4 per million inhabitants). Lynch syndrome is clinically characterized by an early onset of nonpolyposis colorectal carcinoma, with multiple lesions and neoplasms. The syndrome is caused by mutations in genes encoding DNA mismatch repair proteins. The microsatellites are regions of the DNA that repeat between one or more nucleotides and are susceptible to errors during replication, these are corrected by a repair system, when genes are mutated, the errors persist. The genes encoding repair proteins are expressed in the nuclei of normal colonic cells which can be observed using immunohistochemical studies. The MLH1, MSH2 genes are found to be mutated in 90% of the cases and the rest corresponds to the MSH6 and PMS2 genes. This oncogenic pathway characteristically consists of an alteration in the DNA repair system that is controlled by mismatch repair genes (MMR). An extensive research was conducted on PubMed, Springer and JAMA, using the keyword: CRC phenotype, Lynch syndrome and microsatellite instability. 55 articles were found. This review«s objective is to understand the mechanisms of nonpolyposis colorectal cancer and the importance of identifying patients with a mutant phenotype as a predictive factor for the efficacy of the anti-PD1/PDL1 immunotherapy and for prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Epithelioid inflammatory myofibroblastic sarcoma (EIMS) is a rare variant of the inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor. It has an aggressive clinical course and a high rate of recurrence. EIMS primarily affects children and young adults. Hereby, we report this entity in a 4-month-old infant who presented with an abdominal mass. Imaging studies revealed a large hypodense mesentery-based lesion involving the right half and mid-region of the abdomen. The mass with an attached segment of the small bowel was excised in toto. Grossly, a large encapsulated tumor was identified arising from the mesentery of the small bowel. The histological examination showed a tumor consisting of epithelioid to spindle cells loosely arranged in a myxoid background with numerous blood vessels and lymphoplasmacytic inflammatory infiltrate. On immunohistochemistry, the tumor cells showed positivity for ALK1 (nuclear), desmin, SMA, CD68, and focal positivity for CD30. A final diagnosis of EIMS of the small intestine was rendered. To the best of our knowledge, this case is the youngest reported case in literature.

ABSTRACT

Metastatic gallbladder carcinoma to the ovaries is occasional but a recognized entity. It can mimic, clinical and morphologically, a primary ovarian tumor, challenging the diagnosis. We present the case of a patient with a lump in the hypogastrium extending into the right iliac fossa and was found to have abdominopelvic cystic lesion with enhancing solid components and multiple sub-centimetric and ill-defined abdominal lymph nodes. Also, subpleural and parenchymal nodules in the lungs were present. She subsequently underwent a laparotomy. Cholecystectomy was also done due to pre-existing symptomatic biliary lithiasis. The histologic report described the ovarian involvement as metastases from a gallbladder carcinoma. The presentation of ovarian metastases can challenge the diagnosis. Hence, careful evaluation of the digestive tract and judicious use of immunohistochemistry should be considered in patients presenting with ovarian masses.
