Primary malignant cardiac tumors (PMCTs) are fatal, but up to now, there is still a lack of survival prediction model for prognosis evaluation. We developed nomograms to predict overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) for PMCTs by the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Result (SEER) database.
This article was published in the following journal.

The goal of this study was to establish and validate two nomograms for predicting the long-term overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) in lip squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC).
Our study was designed to construct nomograms to predict the overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) of lip carcinoma patients.A search of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Resu...
We initially aimed to ascertain the application value of inflammatory indexes in predicting severe acute radiation pneumonitis (SARP). Furthermore, a novel nomogram and risk classification system inte...
Numerous pretreatment risk classification tools are available for prostate cancer. Which tool is best in predicting prostate cancer death is unclear.
Recent data and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines suggest that high-risk prostate cancer (cT3-4, Gleason score ≥ 8, or prostate-specific antigen [PSA] > 20 ng/mL) is a heteroge...
The aim of this study is to elaborate nomograms to optimize amikacine first dosing in critically ill patients, using a population pharmacokinetics model elaborated with multicentric data.
The study evaluates and validates a new classification proposed by Juodzbalys and Daugela in 2013 predicting the complexity of impacted mandibular third molars surgical extraction, compari...
Predictive analytics for GTR, EOR and RV are useful in surgical decision-making, particularly whenever there is no unequivocal indication for surgery. Several factors have been shown to ha...
The objective of the present study was to compare the ability of acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) scoring systems with the combination of an anthropometric variable ...
Background. The aim of our study was to investigate the ability of the Seventh edition of the classification by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) to identify patients at higher...
Graphical representation of a statistical model containing scales for calculating the prognostic weight of a value for each individual variable. Nomograms are instruments that can be used to predict outcomes using specific clinical parameters. They use ALGORITHMS that incorporate several variables to calculate the predicted probability that a patient will achieve a particular clinical endpoint.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Enzyme systems containing a single subunit and requiring only magnesium for endonucleolytic activity. The corresponding modification methylases are separate enzymes. The systems recognize specific short DNA sequences and cleave either within, or at a short specific distance from, the recognition sequence to give specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. Enzymes from different microorganisms with the same specificity are called isoschizomers. EC 22.214.171.124.
The process of minimizing risk to an organization by developing systems to identify and analyze potential hazards to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences, and by attempting to handle events and incidents which do occur in such a manner that their effect and cost are minimized. Effective risk management has its greatest benefits in application to insurance in order to avert or minimize financial liability. (From Slee & Slee: Health care terms, 2d ed)
A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
