Expression Profiles and Cerna Regulation Network of SOX Genes in Gastric Cancer

Research Article

1. Abstract

Aberrant expression of the SRY-related HMG-box (SOX) genes contributes to tumor development and progression. This research aimed to identify the regulation of the SOX genes in Gastric Cancer (GC). Expression profiles downloaded from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) were conducted to analyze the expression and function of the SOX genes.

Wilson’s disease is an autosomal recessive disease causing progressive copper overload. It is an initially hepatic affection which can evolve towards a multi-systemic attack with an accumulation of copper in the brain, the eye, the kidney, the heart.

Aggressive Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis Mimicking Gallbladder Cancer

Case Report

1. Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis (XGC) is a benign uncommon variant of chronic cholecystitis. Perioperative findings may lead to confusion with gallbladder cancer, as the inflammation frequently extends to adjacent organs. In this report, we present a 50-year-old woman with a 2- years history of chronic abdominal pain and imaging suggestive of gallbladder carcinoma. The pathological examination of the resected specimen is consistent with xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis.
