The significance of mucin pools following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced rectal cancer.

Neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy is utilized for locally advanced rectal cancer to optimize local control. A subset of patients form mucin pools following radiotherapy but the association between mucin ...

Can Haematology Blood Tests at Time of Diagnosis Predict Response to Neoadjuvant Treatment in Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer?

Outcomes in locally advanced rectal cancer are improved by neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgical resection. Some patients respond completely to preoperative treatment. Therefore, predicting the pat...

Adoption of Total Neoadjuvant Therapy for Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer.

Treatment of locally advanced rectal (LARC) cancer involves chemoradiation, surgery, and chemotherapy. The concept of total neoadjuvant therapy (TNT), in which chemoradiation and chemotherapy are admi...

Survival benefit of neoadjuvant chemoradiation or apples and oranges revisited.

The analysis of a National Cancer Database performed by Sun et al. [1] examines survival difference in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer with different neoadjuvant therapy modalities. The ...

Individualized threshold for tumor segmentation in 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging: The key for response evaluation of neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy in patients with rectal cancer?

The standard treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer (RC) consists of neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by radical surgery. Regardless the extensive use of SUVmax in 18F-FDG PET tumor uptake as...

Tumor Response Prediction in Neoadjuvant Chemoradiation of Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer Using Metabonomics Analysis

This study suggested an effective application of pattern recognition, which figured the possible biological function of potential bio-markers of rectal cancer found in our study based on t...

Biomarkers for Predicting Neoadjuvant Chemoradio-resistance for Middle-low Advanced Rectal Cancer

Neoadjuvant therapy has been widely applied to locally advanced rectal cancer. However, about 50% of patients receiving this therapy do not respond well as evidenced by the fact that their...

FOLFOX6 Totally Neoadjuvant Chemoradiation Therapy in Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer: A Single Arm Phase II Study

Concurrent Chemoradiation With Concomitant Boost In Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer

Neoadjuvant chemoradiation (CRT), is considered the standard treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer with a positive impact on locoregional control and survival.However, patients with ...

Neoadjuvant Triplet Chemotherapy Regimen in Patients With Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer

This study aims to investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of triplet regimen of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.

Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
