A BILATERAL METACHRONOUS MESOTHELIOMA OF THE TUNICA VAGINALIS.

Urology 2018 July 17 [Link] Abello A, Steinkeler J, Das AK Abstract This is a unique case of bilateral metachronous testicular mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis. Testicular mesothelioma is a rare entity found in patients with or without asbestos occupational exposure. The tumor most commonly presents as a unilateral testicular mass. More rare presentations include […]

IMP3 as a prognostic biomarker in patients with malignant peritoneal mesothelioma.

Human Pathology 2018 July 18 [Link] Hui S, Guo-Qi Z, Xiao-Zhong G, Chun-Rong L, Yu-Fei L, Dong-Liang Y Abstract Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPeM) is an incurable cancer with poor prognosis and several biomarkers have been suggested for screening of MPeM. The aim of our study was to evaluate the prognostic significanceas of IMP3 and Fli-1 […]

Pre-clinical Models for Malignant Mesothelioma Research: From Chemical-Induced to Patient-Derived Cancer Xenografts.

Frontiers in Genetics 2018 July 4 [Link] Nabavi N, Wei J, Lin D, Collins CC, Gout PW, Wang Y Abstract Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a rare disease often associated with environmental exposure to asbestos and other erionite fibers. MM has a long latency period prior to manifestation and a poor prognosis. The survival post-diagnosis is […]

Matrix Metalloproteinases Polymorphisms as Baseline Risk Predictors in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma.

Radiology and Oncology 2018 February 7 [Link] Strbac D, Goricar K, Dolzan V, Kovac V Abstract BACKGROUND: Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a rare disease, linked to asbestos exposure in more than 80% of the cases. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been identified as modulators of the tumour microenvironment and carcinogenesis. Polymorphisms of selected MMPs have been […]

Detecting germline BAP1 mutations in patients with peritoneal mesothelioma: benefits to patient and family members.

Journal of Translational Medicine 2018 July 13 [Link] Kittaneh M, Berkelhammer C Abstract Germline mutations in the BRCA-1 associated tumor protein 1 (BAP1) increase susceptibility to mesothelioma and other cancers. We describe a patient with a family history of peritoneal mesothelioma, who developed malignant peritoneal mesothelioma at age 45 in the absence of known asbestos […]
