Figure 5. Gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) showed that high ANXA1 expression tumors
significantly enriched inflammatory response, TNF- signaling via NF B, epithelial-mesenchymal
transition, TGF- signaling, hypoxia, and angiogenesis gene sets in TNBC in both TCGA and
METABRIC cohorts.
3. Discussion
ANXA1 is known to be related to inflammatory pathways , cell proliferation, and the regulation
of cell death signaling . However, there have been controversies in its role in breast cancer and
survival. To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the association between ANXA1
expression and cancer using two large independent cohorts. We found that ANXA1 high tumors
enriched inflammation and EMT gene sets, which suggest that previously reported mechanisms using
in vitro and in vivo experiments are in place in human cancer and are clinically relevant.
Strikingly, we found that ANXA1 high tumors significantly enriched angiogenesis gene sets
were associated with high infiltration of activated mast cells. The role of tumor-infiltrating mast
cells has been drawing attention in recent years. However, their impact on patients’ prognosis has
been controversial . It was reported that the density of mast cells increases in breast tumors
after neoadjuvant chemotherapy, suggesting a strong association with tumor immunity . Taken
together, we cannot help but speculate that ANXA1 expression may play a role in mast cell-induced
inflammation and angiogenesis in breast cancer, which is a di erent mechanism compared to that seen
in other cancers, such as colon cancer, and that may be one of the reasons why clinical trials using
anti-angiogenesis therapy have failed in breast cancer.
ANXA1 continues to attract attention, and some reported that the expression of ANXA1 may be
associated with chemotherapy response in TNBC . Other authors reported that ANXA1 plays an
important role in the tumor microenvironment .
Our study has several limitations. The first and biggest was that while our research has
demonstrated the association between ANXA1 expression and mast cell infiltration, we have no data
to suggest causality. The second was that TCGA and METABRIC databases have substantial missing
values, especially information regarding metastasis. In addition, immune cells were assessed with a
computational algorithm alone and not with flow cytometry or immunohistochemical staining (IHC)
in this study. It would have been ideal to validate the association of ANXA1 expression and mast cell
infiltration with protein expression as was previously done in survival analyses; however, no sample
Int. J. Mol. Sci. 2019, 20, 4197 7 of 11
was available for flow cytometry that would allow such analyses. In the future, we hope to conduct a
prospective study with a larger sample volume to overcome these issues.
4. Materials and Methods
4.1. Patient Cohorts
The patient clinical data and gene expression data (mRNA expression z-score of RNA-seq) were
downloaded through cBioPortal from the latest The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) cohort (TCGA
provisional) as described previously . Among 1081 female breast cancer patients with mRNA
expression from RNA sequence data, survival data were available in 1079 patients. Level 3 Z-score
normalized gene expression data, as well as overall survival data from 1904 patients in a Molecular
Taxonomy of Breast Cancer International Consortium (METABRIC) cohort , were also downloaded
from cBioPortal. Patients were classified as either high or low ANXA1 expression using the median of
their mRNA expression as the cut-o . Disease-free survival (DFS) was defined from the time of
completion of primary treatment until clinical confirmation of tumor recurrence. Overall survival (OS)
was defined using time of death. For disease-specific survival (DSS) analyses, the patients who died of
other causes were excluded. CYT is the immune cytolytic activity score. It has previously been defined
by calculating the geometric mean expression values of granzyme A (GZMA) and perforin (PRF1) .
These proteins are pivotal cytolytic e ector molecules. MATH is the mutant-allele tumor heterogeneity
level. This is derived by calculating the median of its mutant-allele fractions at tumor-specific mutated
loci, which has been described in detail .
CIBERSORT, a bioinformatic algorithm that allows calculation of immune cell composition from
gene expression profiles, was invented to estimate tumor-infiltrating immune cells in tumors and
was applied as described previously . Immune cell fraction data was downloaded through The
Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) ( .
4.3. Gene Set Enrichment Analysis
GSEA was performed on TCGA and METABRIC cohorts using software provided by the
Broad Institute (, as described previously .
We classified the patients into two groups according to ANXA1 expression using the mean of their
gene expression range.
4.4. Clinical Samples for Protein Expression
All cases analyzed with immunohistochemistry underwent surgical resection at Fukushima
Medical University between 2002 and 2011. The present study was approved by the Institutional
Review Board and the Ethics Committee of Fukushima Medical University.
4.5. Immunohistochemical Staining and Evaluation
The immunohistochemical staining approach involved immunostaining formalin-fixed
para n-embedded (FFPE) sections for ANXA1. The staining intensity was analyzed using previously
reported methods . These methods involve taking breast cancer specimens and fixing them in
10% formalin and embedding them in para n. The fixed specimens are then cut into 4 m sections
and stained with anti-ANXA1 antibody (clone 29; BD Biosciences, San Jose, CA, USA). ANXA1
expression was defined as high when more than 5% of cells per high-power field stained positive by
immunohistochemistry, following the criteria used in our previous report . Less than 5% staining
of ANXA1 was defined as low expression.

4.6. Statistical Analysis
The di erences in OS and DSS between ANXA high and low groups were analyzed using a
Kaplan–Meier method with the log–rank test as described previously . The clinicopathological
characteristics were compared statistically using the chi-square test or the Fisher exact test.
The di erences between continuous values were compared using the Student’s t-test. A p < 0.05 was
considered statistically significant. All statistical analyses were performed using Microsoft Excel 2010,
R software (http:/// and Bioconductor (
5. Conclusions
These results prove that high expression of ANXA1 is significantly associated with mast cell
infiltration in TNBC, which can explain the strong association with angiogenesis. Our report reinforces
the fact that breast cancer and inflammation show a strong relationship, which can add a new dimension
to the future research and treatment of TNBC.

We aimed to investigate whether noise in delivery rooms is associated with impaired performance of obstetric teams managing major (�1000 mL) postpartum hemorrhage.

Material and methods

We included video recordings of 96 obstetric teams managing real-life major postpartumhemorrhage. Exposure was noise defined as the occurrence of sound level pressures (SPL)above 90 dB. The outcome was high clinical performance assessed through expert ratingsusing the TeamOBS-PPH tool.


The 23 teams unexposed to noise had a significantly higher chance of high clinical performance than the 73 teams exposed to noise: 91.3% (95% CI; 72.0–98.9) versus 58.9% (95%CI; 46.8–70.3) (p < 0.001). The results remained significant when adjusting for the followingpossible confounders: team size, non-technical performance, bleeding velocity, hospitaltype, etiology of bleeding, event duration and time of day. Typical sources of noise above 90dB SPL were mother or baby crying, dropping of instruments, and slamming of cupboarddoors.


Noise in delivery rooms may be an independent source of impaired clinical performance.

Over the past decades, noise has increased at hospitals throughout the world. The estimatedincrease is 15 dB(A), which is considerable as an increase of 10 dB corresponds to a doublingof the perceived noise level. Noise is associated with adverse health outcomes, stress andimpaired performance. Especially sudden, unpredictable noise can cause a startledresponse and thus lead to work disruption.

We know little about how noise affects healthcare providers managing acute events in thehospital setting. However, studies point at increased levels of stress and impaired performancewith cognitive tasks and motor coordination for healthcare workers and other professionalsbeing affected. Accordingly, a pediatric surgery department tried to implement a noisereduction program. They managed to reduce the overall operation theatre sound levelsfrom 63dB(A) to 60 dB(A) and observed a significant decrease in complication rates duringthe same period of time. Labor wards are even noisier with average noise levels reaching 87 dB(A) and maximum noise levels reaching 122 dB(A). Even though this is not experiencedby all personnel every day, these levels are actually within the range where hearing protectionis recommended by the WHO. Such high noise levels may be critical when managingemergencies like postpartum hemorrhage where providing the correct treatment promptly isof paramount importance.

If noise has the potential to impair the clinical performance of obstetric teams, precautionsshould be taken. To our knowledge, no study of the impact of noise on the clinical performance of real-life obstetric emergency teams has previously been published. We thereforeaimed to investigate whether exposure to noise impairs clinical performance in obstetric teamsmanaging real-life major (�1000 mL) postpartum hemorrhage.
