    three common cell types in which, ovarian cancer is formed. Surface epithelium cells cover the outer lining of the ovaries and form epithelial tumors that can either be benign (noncancerous) or cancerous carcinomas. Epithelial tumors are the most common and most dangerous out of the 30 different types of ovarian cancer. (NOCC, Types of Ovarian Cancer, 2012, para. 2) Germ cells are destined to form the ova or eggs in which, germ cell tumors can form from these cells.

    Abstract The female reproductive system is one of the most vital to obtaining new life. It is important to keep healthy and get checkups that can help detect anything abnormal to be able to treat any cancer as soon as possible. Being able to find ovarian cancer at an early stage can make all the difference. Fortunately stage one of ovarian cancer has a very high survival rate. Ovaries are about four centimeters long and hold about one million eggs in each of the ovaries when a female

    reproductive years. The reproductive years begin from the first menstrual period through the menopause. When an ovarian cell becomes cancerous, it will spread through the body rapidly. There are three types of ovarian cancer: Epithelial carcinoma, Germ cell tumor, and Stromal tumor. According to the American Cancer Society they have estimated about 21,290 women will receive the new diagnosis of ovarian cancer in United States and from them

    PLASTICITY OF MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL INTRODUCTION Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), also regarded as marrow stromal cells, are multipotent adult stem cells that are able to differentiate into limited mesodermal lineage and are able to self renew. MSCs possess characteristics that make them useful in regenerative medicine including, immunomodulation, secretion profile and homing characteristics. Depending on where they are used, these characteristics can have a positive and negative influence on the disease

    D. W., & Titus-Ernstoff, L., 2002., p. 455-463). Ovarian cancer can be primary, secondary and metastatic. The malignant tumors, which primarily affect the ovary, are known as primary cancer. Secondary ovarian cancer (cystadenocarcinoma) occurs due to the benign or borderline tumors. Metastatic ovarian cancer (Krukenberg tumor) is a spreading of the primary tumor, which is often located in the gastro-intestinal tract, stomach, breast, thyroid or uterus. (Rossing, M. A., Tang, M. C., Flagg

    Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) Circulating tumor cells (CTCs), represent tumor cells that contain a heterogeneous populace of cells, including apoptotic tumor and viable tumor cells that have shed into the vasculature or lymphatics from a primary or metastatic tumor and are carried around the body in the circulation by undergoing phenotypic changes that are accompanied by a process called as epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) 64-68. Evidence now suggests that the tumors has ability to make their

    Circulating tumor cells (CTCs), represent tumor cells that contain a heterogeneous population of cells, including apoptotic tumor and viable tumor cells that have cast off into the circulation or lymphatic vessels from a primary or metastatic tumor and are transported around the body by undergoing phenotypic changes that are accompanied by a process called as epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) [69-73]. Evidence now suggests that the tumors has ability to make their own blood vessels when they

    age of 60 (Brain, 2014). The high mortality rate of ovarian cancer is caused by the lack of a screening techniques to detect it early on (Visintin et al, 2008). Epithelial ovarian cancer, borderline ovarian tumors, germ cell ovarian cancer, and stromal ovarian cancer are four types of ovarian cancer. There are various stages to ovarian

    hard one but, with the help from your doctors and the knowledge you can get through this. Carcinoma is a cancer that develops from the epithelial cells, which begins in the tissue that lines the outer and inner surface of the body. Breast cancer is a growth of mutated cells that forms in the lobules, the ducts, and also the stromal tissue of the breast. Stromal tissue is the fatty fibrous tissue that holds and supports the breast. The cause of these mutated cells is the change in the genes that
