Baseline metabolic metrics on fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose PET (F-FDG PET) have prognostic value in Hodgkin lymphoma. International Prognostic Score (IPS) is used in the risk stratification of Hodgkin lymphoma. We compared the metabolic indices in HIV-infected and the IPS in HIV-infected and uninfected patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.

Multidisciplinary field focusing on prevention of infectious diseases and patient safety during international TRAVEL. Key element of the pretravel physician's visit is a health risk assessment.
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.
A cluster of metabolic risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome X include excess ABDOMINAL FAT; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state.

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.
System established by the World Health Organization and the International Committee on Thrombosis and Hemostasis for monitoring and reporting blood coagulation tests. Under this system, results are standardized using the International Sensitivity Index for the particular test reagent/instrument combination used.
Hodgkin Lymphoma is a disorder caused by malignant proliferation of lymphocytes, which contain characteristic mirror-image nuclei (Reed-Sternburg cells). The resulting lymphadenopathy can be limited to a single lymph node region (Stage 1) or spread...
