Transitional cell carcinoma pattern in primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube

K UehiraM Enjoji


A broad papillary proliferation resembling that in transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder was seen in 12 of 21 primary carcinomas of the Fallopian tube (PCFT). According to their predominant histologic pattern (more than 50%), PCFT were classified into 9 TCC-predominant and 12 non-TCC-predominant tumors. The two groups were compared by clinicopathologic, histochemical, and immunohistochemical means. TCC-predominant tumors were grossly solid and microscopically demonstrated more frequent tumor necrosis and spindled tumor cells than non-TCC-predominant tumors. Mucin histochemistry revealed a correlation between TCC-predominant tumor and sulfomucin-predominant secretion and between non-TCC-predominant tumor and sialomucin-predominant secretion. Immunohistochemical studies for cytokeratins, vimentin, epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), Leu-M1, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and CA 125 were not useful for discrimination between the two groups. Both groups showed similar features in patient age, clinical stage, cytology of ascites or peritoneal washing, and serum CA 125 level. Despite the similarity in treatment (surgery and postoperative chemotherapy) between the two groups, TCC-predominant tumors tended to relapse...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
