Prognostic Value of Brain Metastasis Free Interval in Patients with Breast Cancer Brain Metastases.

Summary of "Prognostic Value of Brain Metastasis Free Interval in Patients with Breast Cancer Brain Metastases."

In patients with breast cancer brain metastases (BCBM), time between primary tumor diagnosis and appearance of brain metastases varies widely. Despite being a readily available clinical parameter, it remains unclear whether brain metastasis free interval (BMFI) carries prognostic value among breast cancer patients. The aim of this study was to compare characteristics and overall survival among patients with varying BMFIs and to assess the prognostic role, if any, for BMFI.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Relief of PAIN, without loss of CONSCIOUSNESS, through ANALGESIC AGENTS administered by the patients. It has been used successfully to control POSTOPERATIVE PAIN, during OBSTETRIC LABOR, after BURNS, and in TERMINAL CARE. The choice of agent, dose, and lockout interval greatly influence effectiveness. The potential for overdose can be minimized by combining small bolus doses with a mandatory interval between successive doses (lockout interval).

The proportion of survivors in a group, e.g., of patients, studied and followed over a period, or the proportion of persons in a specified group alive at the beginning of a time interval who survive to the end of the interval. It is often studied using life table methods.

An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.

A form of ventricular pre-excitation characterized by a normal PR interval and a long QRS interval with an initial slow deflection (delta wave). In this syndrome, the atrial impulse travel to the ventricle via the Mahaim fibers which connect ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE directly to the right ventricle wall (nodoventricular pathway) or to the RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH OF HIS (nodofascicular pathway).

A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)
