Abstract

Introduction: Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer in women and is the fifth most common cause of mortality from malignancy.

Objectives: The present study was performed to evaluate the number of CD163 positive macrophages and prognostic factors in serous ovarian tumors.

Materials and Methods: In the present cross-sectional study, 43 tissue samples obtained from patients with serous ovarian tumors were selected from the pathology ward of Al-Zahra hospital, Isfahan, Iran. Then, the patients’ demographic information including age, pathological results, clinical stage of the disease, degree of tissue differentiation, the number of CD163 positive macrophages, and the five-year survival rate after the surgery were recorded and evaluated.

Results: Patient age, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage, histological grade, lymphatic metastasis, and the five-year survival rate were positively and significantly associated with the number of CD163 positive macrophages (P <0.05). In addition, the number of CD163 positive macrophages increased the odds of the five-year survival rate in these patients by 1.490 times (P = 0.026).

Conclusion: According to the results of this study, the number of CD163 positive macrophages had a significant association with the progression of ovarian cancer. Moreover, the increased number of CD163 positive macrophages increased the chance of mortality in these patients.
