We intended to identify the predictive abilities of recently published transplant-specific prognostic scoring systems in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients receiving haploidentical transplantatio...
Several serum based-markers and ratios have been investigated for their prognostic value in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). This cohort study aimed to combine these into a novel prognostic sc...
The most common type of cancer originating in the kidney is renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In both localized and advanced RCC, a number of clinical, pathologic, and molecular factors have been identified...
Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) is a high-risk and difficult minimally invasive surgery that requires a comprehensive preoperative evaluation and strict technical training. The Ban Difficulty Scori...
protein-energy malnutrition is a major health concern in home-dwelling older adults, particularly in the context of an ageing population. Therefore, a systematic review and meta-analysis was undertake...
Several risk assessment scoring systems have been proposed to assess the therapeutic response and predict long term prognosis in ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA)-treated primary biliary cholang...
Malnutrition of patients on admission to hospitals are estimated to be as high as 60%, although the prevalence varies between countries. The impact of malnutrition on patient recovery and ...
The objective of the present study was to compare the ability of acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) scoring systems with the combination of an anthropometric variable ...
Apgar scoring system has been widely used for the evaluation of the infant's postnatal condition. As conventional Apgar scoring system is affected by gestational age and resuscitative effo...
The prevalence of thyroid nodule is worldwide high. About 40% of normal population has thyroid nodules and about 5% are malignancy. It is important to differentiate malignancy from benign ...
A condition characterized by poorly-circumscribed gelatinous masses filled with malignant mucin-secreting cells. Forty-five percent of pseudomyxomas arise from the ovary, usually in a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (CYSTADENOCARCINOMA, MUCINOUS), which has prognostic significance. Pseudomyxoma peritonei must be differentiated from mucinous spillage into the peritoneum by a benign mucocele of the appendix. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A set of statistical methods for analyzing the correlations among several variables in order to estimate the number of fundamental dimensions that underlie the observed data and to describe and measure those dimensions. It is used frequently in the development of scoring systems for rating scales and questionnaires.
Tabular numerical representations of sequence motifs displaying their variability as likelihood values for each possible residue at each position in a sequence. Position-specific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are calculated from position frequency matrices.
Acute form of MALNUTRITION which usually affects children, characterized by a very low weight for height (below -3z scores of the median World Health Organization standards), visible severe wasting, or occurrence of nutritional EDEMA. It can be a direct or indirect cause of fatality in children suffering from DIARRHEA and PNEUMONIA. Do not confuse with starvation, a condition in which the body is not getting enough food, usually for extended periods of time.
The study of systems, particularly electronic systems, which function after the manner of, in a manner characteristic of, or resembling living systems. Also, the science of applying biological techniques and principles to the design of electronic systems.
