Characteristics, con’t. Cytologic features– Benign – small, uniform cells, no visiblenucleoli– Malignant – large, pleomorphic cells withlarge hyperchromatic nuclei, N:C ratio 1:1 (nl.1:4), large nucleoli, irregular nuclear outlinesAnaplasia Neoplasm without apparent differentiation,undifferentiated cellsDifferentiation Refers to original parenchymal cell, tissueappearance and function– Benign - well differentiated, resembles cell oforigin with few mitoses, secretion of products,hormones, mucins, etc.– Malignant - well to poorly differentiated withnumerous, bizarre mitosesAbnormal mitosis2

Dysplasia Disorderly cellular maturation If, full epithelial involvement –carcinoma insitu, pre-invasive stage HPV – cervix Smoking- respiratory tract GERD – esophagusLocal Invasion Benign – most encapsulated and cannotinvade or spread to other sites Malignant – not encapsulated and caninvadeBenign Neoplasia Remains localized Cannot spread to other sites Most patients survive, but some tumorlocations can cause serious problems (brainstem, spinal cord, pituitary)Rate of Growth Benign – slower growth, some dependenton hormones, leiomyoma Malignant – more rapid growth, areas ofnecrosis3

Malignant Neoplasia Can invade and destroy adjacent tissue Can spread to distant sites, metastasis4

Metastasis Dissemination to other organs:– Seeding of body cavities (ovary)– Lymphatic spread (carcinoma)– Hematogenous dissemination (sarcoma)Steps of Successful Metastasis Detachment of tumor cells (E-cadherin loss) Degradation of ECM (MMP’s - overexpressedand TIMP’s - reduced) Attachment to new ECM proteins (cleavageproducts of collagen and laminin bind to receptorson tumor cells - stimulate migration Migration of tumor cells (cytokines from tumorcells direct movement, autocrine, and stromal cellsproduce paracrine effectors, HGF/SCF, formotility that bind to tumor cells)5

Homing of Tumor CellsHoming of Tumor Cells Most metastases predicted by vascular andlymphatic drainage Some homing related to expression of endothelialadhesion molecules Chemokines and chemokine receptors are alsoinvolved in homing. (breast ca cells-chemokinereceptors: CXCR-4 and -7 bind to the chemokinesCXCL12 and CCL21 on distant organs) After extravasation, tumor cells survive only inreceptive ECM and stroma6
