Disease relevance of Ovarian Cysts


High impact information on Ovarian Cysts

  • Experimental studies in rodents demonstrating uterine and ovarian atrophy at high doses of paracetamol and decreased ovarian-cyst formation at lower doses suggest a biological basis for our observations [6].
  • Our data indicate that it is through the differential regulation of the cki Dacapo that two modes of cell-cycle regulation are independently maintained within the common cytoplasm of ovarian cysts [7].
  • All four of the antibodies were reactive with neutral glycolipids partitioned by Folch extraction of human colon carcinoma cell lines and also with a glycoprotein extracted from ovarian cyst mucin, suggesting that they may recognize one or more carbohydrate structures [8].
  • Risk was also elevated among those reporting a prior ovarian cyst, medroxyprogesterone use, a first degree family history of cancer, and occupational exposure to paint [9].
  • Ovarian cyst fluid CEA activity was bound by concanavalin A-Sepharose 4B and specifically eluted with competing monosaccharide [10].
