Summary of "18F-FDG-PET metabolic metrics and International Prognostic Score for risk assessment in HIV-infected patients with Hodgkin lymphoma."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
