Treatment Options for Adenoid Cystic Lacrimal Gland Carcinoma - A Case Series and Literature Review.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lacrimal gland (ACC) is a rare malignant orbital tumour with a poor overall prognosis. Current therapeutic approaches like radical and local surgery, adjuvant radiation...

Abnormal activation of the Akt signaling pathway in adenoid cystic carcinoma.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is an intriguing lesion because it shows a slow growth in the beginning, but a late poor prognosis due to perineural invasion, metastasis and recurrence. This study aime...

Prognostic factors and survival in adenoid cystic carcinoma of the sinonasal cavity.

Optimal treatment and prognostic factors affecting long-term survival in patients with sinonasal adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) have yet to be clearly defined.

Impact of lymph node sampling on survival in cN0 major salivary gland adenoid cystic carcinoma.

The role of elective neck dissection in the management of major salivary gland adenoid cystic carcinoma is unclear.

Pretreatment quantitative F-FDG PET/CT parameters as a predictor of survival in adenoid cystic carcinoma of the salivary glands.

The aim of this study was to determine the unique prognostic value of quantitative F-FDG PET/CT parameters to assess progression-free survival (PFS), distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS), and overa...

Study of RAD001 in Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma

- Although mTOR is clearly an attractive therapeutic target in tumor, no clinical study on mTOR inhibition by RAD001 has been systematically conducted in adenoid cystic carcinom...

Compassionate Use of Brontictuzumab for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC)

The goal of this study is to start treatment with the NOTCH1 inhibitor brontictuzumab in an attempt to control tumors and prolong survival. The therapy involves participant being given the...

Testing Lenvatinib in Patients With Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, the drug lenvatinib has on the patient and on adenoid cystic carcinoma. This type of cancer study is called a phase ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

Interference with the secretion of tears by the lacrimal glands. Obstruction of the lacrimal sac or nasolacrimal duct causing acute or chronic inflammation of the lacrimal sac (DACRYOCYSTITIS). It is caused also in infants by failure of the nasolacrimal duct to open into the inferior meatus and occurs about the third week of life. In adults occlusion may occur spontaneously or after injury or nasal disease. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p250)

Malignant neoplasms involving the ductal systems of any of a number of organs, such as the MAMMARY GLANDS, the PANCREAS, the PROSTATE, or the LACRIMAL GLAND.

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
