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 ...

Survival benefits from postoperative radiation therapy on lymph node positive patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

The benefit of combining postoperative radiation therapy (PORT) with chemotherapy for resected patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma is controversial. We sought to determine the effects of PORT on s...

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...

A 70-year-old man with prostate cancer (adenocarcinoma; pT3aN0Mx; GS: 4 + 4) underwent radical prostatectomy and lymph node dissection in February 2008. In December 2009, biochemical recurrence occurr...

A nomogram for predicting the likelihood of lymph node metastasis in early gastric patients.

Early gastric cancer is defined as a lesion confined to the mucosa or submucosa, regardless of the size or lymph node metastasis. Treatment methods include endoscopic mucosal resection or endoscopic s...

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)
