Researchers Identify Role of ATP-Binding Cassette Transporters in Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Resistance to Chemotherapy

ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters are the major determinants of anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) resistance to chemotherapy, and these transporters could be key in tailoring treatments for patients with ATC, according to a paper recently published in Endocrinology. Researchers led by Vahid Haghpanah, MD, MPH, PhD, of the Endocrinology and Metabolism Research at the Tehran University...

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor May Prevent Defective Uterine Artery Remodeling

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) delivery selectively to the placental basal plate (PBM) may prevent maternal and neonatal impairments caused by defective uterine artery remodeling (UAR), according to a primate study recently accepted for publication in Endocrinology. Researchers led by Eugene Albrecht, PhD, a professor of medicine in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive...

Genetic Studies Provide Possible Mechanistic Link Between Endometriosis and Ovarian Cancer

Genetic breakthroughs from three recent whole-exome sequencing studies of endometrial and endometriotic epithelial cells provided some unexpected findings linking endometriosis and ovarian cancer, according to a paper recently published in Endocrinology. The paper, by Serdar E. Bulun, MD, of the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago, notes that while associations between endometriosis...
