Treatment algorithms for primary and recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are described in the current Japanese Clinical Practice Guidelines; however, primary and recurrent tumors exhibit several ...
To determine the treatment outcome and prognostic factors for survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and macrovascular tumor thrombosis (MTT).
The aim of the study was to analyze the clinicopathologic features, the survival rate, and the prognostic factors of women with unexpected primary fallopian tube carcinoma diagnosed during gynecologic...
Sorafenib is currently the first-line therapy for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (aHCC) patients. However, the outcomes and prognostic factors of sorafenib therapy have not been well investigated. ...
Liver transplantation (LT) is the treatment of choice for patients with unresectable early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Post-LT HCC recurrence rates range from 8 to 20% and still impact on overall ...
The aim of this study is to identify new prognostic factors in patients affected by advanced pancreatic carcinoma treated with first line chemotherapy with FOLFIRINOX regimen. Primary obje...
This is an epidemiological, prospective, multicenter study designed to identify the pre-treatment clinical, molecular and genetic prognostic factors associated with progression free surviv...

This is a single-arm phase II study of twenty-one subjects with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon, rectum, or appendix with prior systemic therapy with a fluoropyrimidine, oxaliplatin, ...
Through this retrospective observational study (over 4 years; period analysed: 1st January 2011 to 31st December 2014), we looked for prognostic factors associated with better survival in ...
A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
A condition characterized by poorly-circumscribed gelatinous masses filled with malignant mucin-secreting cells. Forty-five percent of pseudomyxomas arise from the ovary, usually in a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (CYSTADENOCARCINOMA, MUCINOUS), which has prognostic significance. Pseudomyxoma peritonei must be differentiated from mucinous spillage into the peritoneum by a benign mucocele of the appendix. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
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)
