The therapeutic strategies and prognostic risk factors in patients with lymph node (LN) recurrence of esophageal cancer remain controversial. We assessed clinical outcomes and prognostic factors relat...
Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare type of liver cancer. No clinically useful prognostic factors have been reported for patients with advanced ICC. In the present study, we aimed to evalu...
The aim of the study is to investigate factors related to overall survival in advanced stage ovarian, tubal, or peritoneal cancer and to identify strong and weak prognostic factors.
Patients with advanced cancer experience severe physical, psychosocial, and spiritual distress requiring palliative care (PC). There are limited literature regarding characteristics and outcomes of pa...
Esophageal carcinoma is a common malignancy worldwide, with a low 5-year survival rate. As the majority of cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage, there is an urgent need for an effective biomarker ...
To determine the response to treatment with a novel esophageal stent loaded with 125I seeds for intraluminal brachytherapy versus a conventional covered stent in patients with advanced eso...
The purpose of this study is to provide access to paclitaxel therapy to subjects with advanced or recurrent esophageal cancer who have completed the previous phase 2 study (CA139-540) and...
Cervical cancer is still the most common gynecologic cancer. There was no obvious increase of the survival over years. The risk of recurrence after radical surgery has increased with posit...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about genetic and environmental risk factors in patients with esophageal cancer and in healthy participants in Northern Iran may help doctors learn more ab...
To determine the most efficacious of two combination regimens of sequential CPT-11 and MMC in patients with advanced and previously untreated esophageal and GE junction adenocarcinomas.
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
An antiviral antibiotic produced by Cephalosporium aphidicola and other fungi. It inhibits the growth of eukaryotic cells and certain animal viruses by selectively inhibiting the cellular replication of DNA polymerase II or the viral-induced DNA polymerases. The drug may be useful for controlling excessive cell proliferation in patients with cancer, psoriasis or other dermatitis with little or no adverse effect upon non-multiplying cells.
An antineoplastic agent that is a derivative of progesterone and used to treat advanced breast cancer.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
