Uveal melanoma is the most common primary ocular malignancy in adults in the USA and Europe. The optimal treatment of large uveal melanoma is still under debate. Radiation therapy has its limitation d...
Hexokinase-2 (HK2), the initial as well as the rate-limiting step in glycolysis, is overexpressed in many human cancers, and correlates with poor clinical outcomes. Aerobic glycolysis is a hallmark of...
To evaluate the effects of ranibizumab and amfenac in human uveal melanoma cell lines and to explore the ability of these compounds to sensitize uveal melanoma cells to radiation therapy.
BRAF and MEK inhibitors have demonstrated significant survival benefits for patients with cutaneous melanoma. However, their use for uveal melanoma (UM) is less established. The aim of this systematic...
Uveal melanoma is the most common primary cancer of the eye, and despite rapidly emerging insights into the molecular profile of this disease, prognosis of patients with metastatic uveal melanoma rema...
The aim of the study was to test whether the exposure to electromagnetic millimeter waves - Millimeter Wave Therapy (MWT) is effective for relief of acute postoperative pain in patients af...
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, intermittent dosing of the drug Selumetinib will have on subjects with uveal melanoma. Selumetinib is a drug that bl...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of Avastin introduced into the inside of the eyeball in causing shrinkage of the uveal melanoma (tumor of the eye). Avasti...
This research study is studying a targeted therapy called BVD-523 as a possible treatment for advanced uveal melanoma.
This proof-of-concept study will evaluate the ability of vorinostat to induce the transformation of Class 2 uveal melanoma cells into a cell phenotype that resembles normal melanocytes.
Reproducible depletion of CD4+ lymphocytes below 300 per cubic millimeter in the absence of HIV infection or other known causes of immunodeficiency. This is a rare, heterogeneous syndrome and does not appear to be caused by a transmissible agent.
Finely divided solid matter with particle sizes smaller than a micrometeorite, thus with diameters much smaller than a millimeter, moving in interplanetary space. (NASA Thesaurus, 1994)
A class of devices combining electrical and mechanical components that have at least one of the dimensions in the micrometer range (between 1 micron and 1 millimeter). They include sensors, actuators, microducts, and micropumps.
Mechanical removal of a small amount of tooth structure (not more than a few tenths of a millimeter in depth) to eliminate superficial enamel discoloration defects not successfully removed by bleaching techniques. A common abrasive is a mixture of pumice and hydrochloric acid.
An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma Basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, is a cancer of the basal cells at the bottom of the epidermis. It’s very common ...
