The pathology of the CT-guided biopsy for the peritoneal tumors revealed an extragonadal germ cell tumour (GCT), including yolk sac tumor and choriocarcinoma
is a very rare cancer, with fewer than 20 new cases a year in the UK.
In contrast, choriocarcinoma
readily metastasizes to the lungs and less frequently the pelvis, (17) for which CT is useful (Figure 18).
is an extremely rare cancer, which is often diagnosed following a molar pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion or ectopic pregnancy, when any placental tissue left behind continues to grow despite the absence of a foetus.

We cultured BeWo human placental choriocarcinoma
cells [catalog no.
Her metastatic choriocarcinoma
was treated successfully--but she suffered permanent brain damage from the increased intracranial pressure and the fall.
Uptake of reverse T3 in the human choriocarcinoma
cell line, JAr.
Even more tare is a finding of choriocarcinoma
as a neck mass without any sign or a primar y testicular tumor, as only a few cases have been reported in the literature.
Medical scholars also find a strong correlation between abnormal B-HCG levels and trophoblastic tumors, such as choriocarcinoma
and testicular germ cell tumors (Wu 2007).
Using human choriocarcinoma
(JEG-3 or JAR) cells, transcription factor AP-1 (official symbol, JUN) and ETS2 binding sites at the distal and proximal promoter regions, respectively, have been shown to be effective in IFNT-reporter transactivation (Ezashi et al.
Unusual malignancies arising from BO include adenosquamous carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sarcomatoid carcinoma, neuroendocrine carcinoma, choriocarcinoma
and yolk sac tumours.
In a recent study at the INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier (Laval, Quebec, Canada) the E-Plate Insert had been used to test the behaviour of BeWo human placental choriocarcinoma
cells in co-culture with H295R human adrenocortical carcinoma cells.
cyclophosphamide therapy for choriocarcinoma
was associated with a reduction in the fertility rate when compared with treatment with methotrexate only; (38) 79% of the total number of patients desiring pregnancy had at least one live birth after cyclophosphamide, compared with 86% in those who received methotrexate only.
most often occurs from a choriocarcinoma
within the ovary.
