ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the status of microsatellite instability (MSI) and its relationship with clinicopathological characteristics of patients with endometrial carcinoma.Methods:The clinical data of 365 patients with endometrial carcinoma who received surgery in Shanxi Province Cancer Hospital between January 2020 and December 2021 were retrospectively analyzed. Immunohistochemistry was used to detect the expressions of 4 DNA mismatch repair (MMR) proteins (MLH1, MSH2, MHS6, and PMS2), estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and p53 mutant protein in postoperative cancer tissue samples from 365 patients with endometrial carcinoma. All patients were divided into MSI group (1 or more non-expression of MMR protein) and microsatellite stability (MSS) group (4 proteins were all expressed), and the clinicopathological characteristics of patients in both groups were compared. φ efficient was used to analyze the correlation of MSI with ER, PR, p53 mutant protein expressions. Results:There were 72 cases (19.7%) in MSI group and 293 cases (80.3%) in MSS group; and the age of all patients was (53±19) years (21-83 years). There were statistically significant differences in the proportion of MSI patients in endometrial carcinoma patients with different age [>50 years vs. ≤50 years: 22.1% (61/276) vs. 12.4% (11/89)], tumor diameter [≤2 cm vs. > 2 cm: 25.9% (30/116) vs. 16.8% (42/249)], International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging [stage Ⅲ-Ⅳ vs. stage Ⅰ-Ⅱ: 31.1% (14/45) vs. 18.1% (58/320)], histological type [type Ⅰ vs. type Ⅱ: 21.7% (71/327) vs. 2.6% (1/38)] (all P < 0.05). There were no statistically significant differences in the proportion of MSI patients with different depth of invasion, degree of differentiation, lymph node metastasis, vascular involvement, and lesion location (all P > 0.05). Among 327 cases of type Ⅰendometrial carcinoma, 1 case was mucinous adenocarcinoma (MSS status), and the other 326 cases were endometrioid adenocarcinoma. Of the 72 patients with MSI, 71 cases were endometrioid carcinoma and the other was 1 of 3 mixed carcinomas in type Ⅱ endometrial carcinoma. There was a negative correlation between MSI and mutant p53 ( φ coefficient was -0.11, P = 0.031), and φ coefficient of the correlation of MSI with ER and PR was -0.03 and -0.06, while there were no statistically significant differences ( P value was 0.578 and 0.255, respectively). Conclusions:Endometrioid adenocarcinoma is the main type of endometrial cancer patients with MSI. MSI in endometrial cancer is correlated with age, FIGO staging, tumor diameter and histological type of patients, while negatively correlated with mutant p53.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the expression levels of peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) of the cervix and early cervical cancer, and to analyze their correlation with the clinicopathological characteristics of cervical cancer.Methods:The clinical data of 65 patients with HSIL and 78 patients with early cervical cancer (2018 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage ≤ stage Ⅱ A) treated in Shanxi Province Cancer Hospital from October 2020 to November 2021 were retrospectively analyzed, and 31 healthy people undergoing physical examination during the same period were treated as the healthy control group. The expressions of CD3 + T cells, CD4 + T cells, CD8 + T cells, NK cells, NK/T cells and other immune cells in fasting peripheral blood of the patients were detected by using flow cytometry. Results:The expression levels of CD3 + T cells, CD4 + T cells, CD4 +/CD8 + and NK cells were 71±8, 39±7, 1.5±0.5, 16±7, respectively in HSIL group, and 73±9, 41±9, 1.5±0.6, 16±9, respectively in early cervical cancer group, which were lower than those in the healthy control group (76±9, 45±10, 2.0±1.3, 20±7) (all P < 0.05). The expression levels of CD8 + T cells was 28±7, 29±8, respectively in HSIL group and early cervical cancer group, which were higher than those in the healthy control group (24±7) (all P < 0.05). The expression level of total B cells in early cervical cancer group was lower than that in healthy control group (10±4 vs.12±3, P < 0.05). The expression level of CD3 + T cells in peripheral blood of early cervical cancer patients with tumor diameter >4 cm and nerve/vascular invasion was 71±10 and 72±8, which was lower than that of patients with tumor diameter 2-4 cm, ≤2 cm and without nerve/vascular invasion (72±8, 75±8, 78±7); the expression level of CD8 + T cell was 32±8 and 35±4, which was higher than that of patients with tumor diameter 2-4 cm, ≤2 cm, and without nerve/vascular invasion (28±8, 28±7, 29±8) (all P < 0.05). The levels of CD3 + T cells and total B cells were negatively correlated with the tumor diameter (all P < 0.05), while the level of CD8 + T cells was positively correlated with tumor diameter ( P < 0.05); the levels of CD3 + T cells and NK cells were negatively correlated with nerve/vascular invasion (all P < 0.05). Conclusions:The immune function of the body starts to change in the early progression of cervical cancer, and is related to the tumor diameter and nerve/vascular invasion of cervical cancer.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the clinical significance of expression of mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase kinase kinase 3 (MEKK3) in the early-stage cervical cancer. Methods Seventy-one patients with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and 92 patients with early-stage cervical cancer who underwent surgery in Shanxi Provincial Cancer Hospital from March to October 2010 were enrolled. In the same period, 30 normal cervical specimens from hysterectomy due to uterine fibroids were collected as normal controls. The expression of MEKK3 in all specimens was detected by immunohistochemistry and its clinical significance was analyzed. Theχ2 test was performed on the comparison of count data. Results The positive expression rate of MEKK3 was 13.33% (4/30) in the normal control group, 28.57%(6/21) in the CINⅠgroup, 38.89%(7/18) in the CINⅡgroup, 56.25%(18/32) in the CIN Ⅲgroup and 70.65%(65/92) in the early-stage cervical cancer group. The differences of positive expression rates of MEKK3 in the normal control group, CIN group and early-stage cervical cancer group had statistical significance (χ2=36.870, P<0.05). Compared with the normal control group, the positive rates of MEKK3 in the CINⅢ group and early-stage cervical cancer group increased significantly (χ2 values were 12.458 and 30.251, both P<0.005). The positive rate of MEKK3 in the early-stage cervical cancer group was higher than that in the CIN Ⅰ group (χ2=12.964, P<0.005). The expression of MEKK3 in early-stage cervical cancer were related to histopathological differentiation and lymphatic metastasis (χ2 values were 6.832 and 4.404, both P< 0.05) rather than age, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage, histopathological type, tumor diameter and infiltration depth (all P>0.05). Conclusion MEKK3 plays a role in the occurrence, development and prognosis of early-stage cervical cancer, and the detection of MEKK3 may help to assess the degree of early-stage cervical cancer.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the correlation between the levels of urinary ptasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) and the clinicopathological characteristics of patients with cervical carcinoma and it's clinical significance. Methods SABC immunohistochemistry was employed to detect the expression of uPAR in 50 cases of cervical carcinoma tissue and 50 cases of normal cervical tissue. ELISA method was used to determine the serum uPAR levels for the patients with cervical carcinoma. Results There was no expressionfor uPAR in normal tissues, The positive expression rate of uPAR was 66 % (33/50). The uPAR level of cervix cancer tissues [(70.92±28.55) ng/100 mg protein]was significantly higher than those in normal tissues [(11.01±5.40) ng/100 mg protein], (P <0.001). and uPAR levels were closely related to clinical stages,lymphatic metastasis and differentiation degree (P <0.05), but not related to deep myometrial invasion and vascular embolization (P >0.05) (however, they were not related to patient's age, tumor growth type and the size of tumor. Significant difference of uPAR level was observed between the patients with cervical carcinoma [(2.38±0.29) ng/ml]and in healthy controls [(0.50±0.16) ng/ml](P <0.001). Single factor analysis indicated that, before the treatment, the serum uPAR levels were closely related to clinical stages, lymphatic metastasis, vascular embolization, and deep myometrial invasion (P <0.05-P <0.01). However, they were not related to differentiation degree (P >0.05). Multifactor regression analysis showed that the pretreatment serum uPAR levels of patients were related to clinical stages (P =0.000), cavum pelvis lymphatic metastasis (P =0.000) and deep myometrial invasion. Patients with cervical carcinoma showed a dramatic drop in serum uPAR levels after treatment, which were significantly different compared to their pretreatment uPAR levels (P <0.001). Linear correlation analysis showed that there was a positive correlation between serum and tissue uPAR levels, (r =0.801, P <0.001). Conclusion There were high expression of uPAR in serum and tissues with cervical carcinoma. Pretreatment serum uPAR levels were closely related to patients' clinical stages,cavum pelvis lymphatic metastasis and deep myometrial invasion, serum uPAR levels may be an important tmnor marker for the diagnosis, detection, prognosis of cervical carcinoma.
