ARID1A mutations in endometriosis-associated ovarian carcinomas. Ovarian clear-cell and endometrioid carcinomas may arise from endometriosis, but the molecular events involved in this transformation have not been described.We sequenced the whole transcriptomes of 18 ovarian clear-cell carcinomas and 1 ovarian clear-cell carcinoma cell line and found somatic mutations in ARID1A (the AT-rich interactive domain 1A [SWI-like] gene) in 6 of the samples. ARID1A encodes BAF250a, a key component (...) of the BAF250a protein correlated strongly with the ovarian clear-cell carcinoma and endometrioid carcinoma subtypes and the presence of ARID1A mutations. In two patients, ARID1A mutations and loss of BAF250a expression were evident in the tumor and contiguous atypical endometriosis but not in distant endometriotic lesions.These data implicate ARID1A as a tumor-suppressor gene frequently disrupted in ovarian clear-cell and endometrioid carcinomas. Since ARID1A mutation and loss of BAF250a can be seen

Anti-TNF-alpha treatment for pelvic pain associated with endometriosis. Endometriosis is a chronic, recurring condition that can develop during the reproductive years. It is characterized by the development of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. It is the most common cause of pelvic pain in women. This endometrial tissue development is dependent on estrogen produced primarily by the ovaries and, therefore, traditional management has focused on suppression of ovarian function (...) . The mounting evidence shows that altered immune function plays a crucial role in the genesis and development of endometriosis. In this review we considered modulating the inflammation as an alternative approach.To determine the effectiveness and safety of anti-tumour necrosis factor-alpha (anti-TNF-alpha) drugs in the management of pelvic pain associated with endometriosis.We searched for trials in the following databases (from their inception to August 2009): Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility
