Several possible mechanisms exist for the spread of a primary tumor to the leptomeninges in leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. This report describes a case caused by direct bleeding in the subarachnoid sp...
Primary diffuse leptomeningeal melanomatosis (PDLM) is an extremely rare pathologic condition that can mimic several other neurologic disease states.
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare but aggressive primary cutaneous carcinoma with high mortality rates. The present study intends to delineate the epidemiological profile of patients with MCC seen...
In brain tumor patients, worsening of imaging findings in the first 6 months after surgical debulking and chemoradiation can occur in the absence of tumor growth, a phenomenon known as pseudoprogressi...
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is an aggressive, rare neuroendocrine skin cancer. MCC metastasis to the heart is exceedingly rare and gastric metastases from MCC have rarely been reported.
The aim of this work is to study demographic, clinical, management (diagnostic and therapeutic) and survival data concerning patients with Merkel's carcinoma in the Lower Rhine, thus obtai...
The primary objective of this study is to assess whether the combination of BP1001 and LDAC provides greater efficacy (Complete Remission [CR], Complete Remission with incomplete hematolog...
There is no standard treatment for Merkel cell carcinoma(MCC), as no randomized trials have been conducted to establish standard of care. Despite a sizable number of objective responses in...
This research study is studying a targeted therapy as a possible treatment for merkel cell carcinoma. - The name of the study intervention involved in this study is: MLN0128.
The purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational cell therapy called Cvac can help EOC from returning when administered to patients who are in complete remission after surgi...
A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
Modified epidermal cells located in the stratum basale. They are found mostly in areas where sensory perception is acute, such as the fingertips. Merkel cells are closely associated with an expanded terminal bulb of an afferent myelinated nerve fiber. Do not confuse with Merkel's corpuscle which is a combination of a neuron and an epidermal cell.
Therapeutic act or process that initiates a response to a complete or partial remission level.
A species of POLYOMAVIRUS suspected to be the cause of most cases of MERKEL CELL CARCINOMA, a rare but highly lethal form of skin cancer.
The interdisciplinary science that studies evolutionary biology, including the origin and evolution of the major elements required for life, their processing in the interstellar medium and in protostellar systems. This field also includes the study of chemical evolution and the subsequent interactions between evolving biota and planetary evolution as well as the field of biology that deals with the study of extraterrestrial life.
