Macrophage subtype predicts lymph node metastasis in oesophageal adenocarcinoma and promotes cancer cell invasion in vitro.

Currently, there is a lack of ideal biomarkers for predicting nodal status in preoperative stage of oesophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) to aid optimising therapeutic options. We studied the potential of ...

Histological factors predicting loco-regional lymph node metastasis in early invasive colorectal adenocarcinoma pT1.

Endoscopic resection is the common treatment in pT1 colorectal adenocarcinoma whenever possible. The presence of adverse histological factors requires subsequent lymph node evaluation.

Rates of Lymph Node Metastasis and Survival in T1a Gastric Adenocarcinoma in Western Populations.

Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) are widely accepted in Asia for treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC). Few studies have examined lymph node (LN) metasta...

SCF, Regulated by HIF-1α, Promotes Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Cell Progression.

Stem cell factor (SCF) and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) both have important functions in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). This study aims to analyze the expression and clinicopatholo...

International Multicenter Study on the Impact of Extracapsular Lymph Node Involvement in Primary Surgery Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus on Overall Survival and Staging Systems.

The current pathological lymph node (pN) staging is based on the number of positive lymph nodes but does not take into consideration characteristics of the involved lymph nodes itself. The current stu...

The Prognostic Impact of Extracapsular Lymph Node Involvement in Ductal Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

Extracapsular lymph node involvement (ECLNI) has been identified as a pathological variable associated with worse outcome in esophageal, gastric and colorectal cancer. No studies so far ha...

Clinical Trial Comparing Carnoy's and GEWF Solutions for Lymph Node Clearing Technique in Colorectal Cancer

Regional lymph node metastasis is a major determinant of local recurrence and overall survival rates in patients with colorectal cancer. Because of the poor prognosis associated with the p...

Sentinel Node and Endometrial Cancer

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relevance of sentinel node in endometrial cancer. Sentinel node is thought to reflect the status of lymph node. Only 10 to 20% of women with...

Extent of Central Lymph Node Dissection in Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma

Occult lymph node metastasis is common in micro papillary thyroid cancer. However, the role of lymph node dissection in the treatment of microPTC remains controversial. The investigators w...

Prospective Evaluation of the Preoperative Lymph Node Staging in Patients With Cancer of the Esophagogastric Junction and Stomach

This prospective study includes patients with histologically proven cancer of the esophagogastric junction (Siewert Type II and III) and the stomach. Aim of the study is to evaluate the ac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.

Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.

The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)

Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)
