Summary of "Should familial disease be considered as a negative prognostic factor in micropapillary thyroid carcinoma?"

An increased aggressiveness of familial papillary thyroid carcinoma (FPTC) compared with sporadic form has been reported. On the contrary, the biological behavior of familial microPTC (FmPTC) is still debated. To assess if familial diseases should be considered as a negative prognostic factor in mPTC, the clinical presentation and outcome of FmPTC and sporadic mPTC (SmPTC) were compared.

Prognostic differences between oligometastatic and polymetastatic extensive disease-small cell lung cancer.

Oligometastasis is a state in which cancer patients have a limited number of metastatic tumors; patients with oligometastases survive longer than those with polymetastases. Extensive disease (ED)-smal...

Upregulation of glucose and amino acid transporters in micropapillary carcinoma.

Micropapillary carcinoma (MPC), a relatively rare histologic carcinoma observed in various organs, is associated with vascular invasion, nodal metastasis, and poor prognosis. MPC is different from pap...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Storage-stable blood coagulation factor acting in the intrinsic pathway. Its activated form, IXa, forms a complex with factor VIII and calcium on platelet factor 3 to activate factor X to Xa. Deficiency of factor IX results in HEMOPHILIA B (Christmas Disease).

A type of familial lipid metabolism disorder characterized by a variable pattern of elevated plasma CHOLESTEROL and/or TRIGLYCERIDES. Multiple genes on different chromosomes may be involved, such as the major late transcription factor (UPSTREAM STIMULATORY FACTORS) on CHROMOSOME 1.

Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.

A eukaryotic initiation factor that binds to 40S ribosomal subunits. Although initially considered a "non-essential" factor for eukaryotic transcription initiation, eukaryotic initiation factor-1 is now thought to play an important role in localizing RIBOSOMES at the initiation codon of MRNA.

A peripheral arterial disease that is characterized by the triad of ERYTHEMA, burning PAIN, and increased SKIN TEMPERATURE of the extremities (or red, painful extremities). Erythromelalgia may be classified as primary or idiopathic, familial or non-familial. Secondary erythromelalgia is associated with other diseases, the most common being MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.
