Summary of "Morphology and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in high-stage, high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma correlated with long-term survival."

Advanced-stage ovarian high-grade serous carcinoma (HGSC) is a poor-prognosis cancer, however a small and poorly characterized subset of patients shows long-term survival. We aimed to establish a cohort of HGSC long-term survivors for histopathological and molecular analysis.

Tumor Grade is Prognostically Relevant Among Mismatch Repair Deficient Colorectal Carcinomas.

Intestinal-type colorectal adenocarcinomas are graded based on extent of glandular differentiation, although mucinous, signet-ring cell, and solid cancers are, by convention, classified as high grade....

Pre-treatment metabolic tumor volume predicts tumor metastasis and progression in high-grade salivary gland carcinoma.

High-grade salivary gland carcinoma (SGC) shows a high rate of metastasis and post-treatment recurrence, resulting in poor patient survival. Therefore, we evaluated the utility of pre-treatment F-FDG ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant epithelial tumor of glandular tissue, especially the salivary glands, characterized by acini with mucus-producing cells and by the presence of malignant squamous elements. Most mucoepidermoid tumors are low-grade lesions readily cured by adequate excision. They may appear in any age group. They grow slowly. If high-grade, they behave aggressively, widely infiltrating the salivary gland and producing lymph node and distant metastases. (Dorland, 27th ed; from DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p575)

A tumor of both low- and high-grade malignancy. The low-grade grow slowly, appear in any age group, and are readily cured by excision. The high-grade behave aggressively, widely infiltrate the salivary gland and produce lymph node and distant metastases. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas account for about 21% of the malignant tumors of the parotid gland and 10% of the sublingual gland. They are the most common malignant tumor of the parotid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p575; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1240)

Lymphocytes that show specificity for autologous tumor cells. Ex vivo isolation and culturing of TIL with interleukin-2, followed by reinfusion into the patient, is one form of adoptive immunotherapy of cancer.

Form of adoptive transfer where cells with antitumor activity are transferred to the tumor-bearing host in order to mediate tumor regression. The lymphoid cells commonly used are lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This is usually considered a form of passive immunotherapy. (From DeVita, et al., Cancer, 1993, pp.305-7, 314)

Liquid chromatographic techniques which feature high inlet pressures, high sensitivity, and high speed.
