To investigate the accuracy of CT in preoperative discrimination of cT3 from cT4 in patients with Siewert II esophagogastric junction (EGJ) adenocarcinoma according to UICC/AJCC 8th edition and IGCA 4th edition.
The TNM staging system for cancer was developed by Pierre Denoix in France in the 1940s and 1950s. The North American effort to standardize the TNM system for cancer staging was first organized in 1959 as the American Joint Committee for Cancer Staging and End-Results Reporting, which is now the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC). The most recent edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, the eighth edition, was globally adopted on January 1, 2018. Previous editions of the manual have relied on anato...
It has been 13 years since the last version of this well-known book for dental practitioners and students was published in 2005. The completely updated and revised (5 ) Edition has been published recently. Sadly Professor Southam died in 2015 but I am sure he would have been proud to see the result.

The TNM classification is a worldwide standard staging system used to define the extent of cancer and is a major prognostic factor in predicting the outcome of patients. The TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, 8th edition, has been used since January 1, 2018. In the area of head and neck cancer major modifications were produced: important updated T and N modification for oral cavity and nasopharyngeal cancer, the introduction of clinical and pathological stages for neck disease, and a new HPV-16-positi...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States, and accurate staging plays a vital role in determining prognosis and treatment. The recently revised eighth edition of the TNM staging system for lung cancer defines new T and M descriptors and updates stage groupings on the basis of substantial differences in survival. There are new T descriptors that are based on the findings at histopathologic examination, and T descriptors are reassigned on the basis of tumor size and ext...

Introducing the eighth edition of the tumor-node-metastasis classification as relevant to colorectal cancer, anal cancer and appendiceal cancer: a comparison study with the seventh edition of the tumor-node-metastasis and the Japanese Classification of Colorectal, Appendiceal, and Anal Carcinoma.
The eighth edition of the tumor-node-metastasis classification of malignant tumors updates cancer staging according to the evidence accumulated in the last 8 years since the release of the tumor-node-metastasis seventh edition. This review focuses on the new staging system.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 6th edition. Edited by Despo Papachristodoulou, Alison Snape, William H. Elliott and Daphne C. Elliott. Oxford University Press, 2018. Pp. 640. Price GBP 39.99, paperback, ISBN 9780198768111.
The Tumor-Nodes-Metastasis system at the core of prognostic staging has been recently updated in the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) 8th edition, published in 2016. For prostate cancer, significant changes in staging of organ-confined disease, inclusion of a new grade grouping, and provision of levels of evidence for these modifications are part of what differentiates the 8th edition AJCC from prior iterations. Herein, the rationale underlying these changes is detailed. In addition, data elements ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has included complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) in the final draft of the 11th edition of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), which was published in June, 2018 and is scheduled to be submitted to WHO's World Health Assembly for official endorsement in 2019. Mental health providers will want to be informed about this diagnosis in order to provide effective treatment. Complex PTSD, or developmental PTSD...
The Dutch translation of Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development, Third Edition (Bayley-III-NL) is a comprehensive tool assessing cognitive, language and motor development in children up to 42 months.
The Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL) assesses the capacity of children to lead a physically active lifestyle. It is comprised of a battery of standardized assessment protocols that reflect the Canadian consensus definition of physical literacy. The Royal Bank of Canada Learn to Play - Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy study implemented the CAPL with 10,034 Canadian children (50.1% female), 8 to 12 years of age. Feedback during data collection, necessary changes identified by the coord...
To obtain versions adapted to the Colombian context of the Primary Care Assessment Tools Child Edition and Adult Edition questionnaires (PCAT-CE and PCAT-AE, respectively) to assess the functions of primary care with equivalence to their original versions.
The 8 edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC)/Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) stage classification (TNM) for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) was launched. It remains unknown if incorporation of non-anatomic factors into the stage classification would better predict survival. We prospectively recruited 518 patients with non-metastatic NPC treated with radical IMRT +/- chemotherapy based on the 8 edition TNM. Recursive partitioning analysis (RPA) incorporating pretreatment plasma...
The aim was to compare the 7 and 8 editions of the AJCC staging system for pancreas head cancer and to validate the 8 edition using three multinational tertiary center data.
Changes to mammography practice, including revised Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) density classification guidelines and implementation of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), may impact clinical breast density assessment. We investigated temporal trends in clinical breast density assessment among 2 990 291 digital mammography (DM) screens and 221 063 DBT screens interpreted by 722 radiologists from 144 facilities in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium. After age-standardization, ...
Car accidents caused by drivers unaware of their visual field (VF) defects under binocular vision have become an issue. We developed a simple self-check chart (CLOCK CHART binocular edition (CCBE)) to help patients with glaucoma recognise their abnormalities in the binocular VF and evaluated its usefulness.
Basal insulin therapy often involves a compromise between achieving glycaemic targets and avoiding hypoglycaemia, dependent on how intensively insulin is titrated. In the phase 3a EDITION 1, 2 and 3 studies, insulin glargine 300 U/mL (Gla-300) provided equivalent glycaemic control to insulin glargine 100 U/mL (Gla-100) with less hypoglycaemia in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The current study evaluated the rates of confirmed (≤3.9 mmol/L [≤70 mg/dL]) or severe hypoglycaemia over 6 months ...

In the eighth edition of the TNM classification of lung cancer, the prognostic impact of tumor size is emphasized as a descriptor of all T categories. Especially in lung cancer where tumor size is 5 cm or less, the 1-cm cutoff point significantly differentiated the survival outcome. In addition, the new staging categories were assigned, namely, Tis (adenocarcinoma in situ) and T1mi (minimally invasive adenocarcinoma). Furthermore, the measurement of a radiological solid component size excluding the ground g...
The year 2018 has provided continuing development of, and forward thinking in, key areas of continuing education and nursing professional development. This article identifies six issues that played a significant role in 2018. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2018;49(12):540-542.].
How type 2 immune responses are initiated is obscure. Nadjsombati et al. (2018), along with two other studies (Lei et al., 2018; Schneider et al., 2018), show that tuft cells can initiate type 2 responses by recognizing the metabolite succinate produced by intestinal parasites.
There have been several proposed changes for the 8th edition of the American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of the new staging system for patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma, especially in stage III patients.
