RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using exemestane, letrozole, or anastrozole, may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen the...
The purpose of this study is to compare the rate of disease free survival (DFS) and distant disease free survival (DDFS) at 5 years in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor and lymph ...
RATIONALE: Sorafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor and by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Estrogen can cause the growth of bre...
RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Aromatase inhibitors, such as letrozole, anastrozole, and exemestane, may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of est...
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. For patients candidated for adjuvant chemotherapy and endocrine therapy the optimal timing for their has not been clearly defin...
The present work describes a fast, sensitive and selective procedure for the analyses of aromatase inhibitors including anastrozole, letrozole and exemestane used in the treatment of metastatic breast...
The main purpose of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the impact of beta-thalassemia major (BTM) on the health-related quality of life as assessed by the medical outcomes short-form-36 questionnaire ...
As a subjective measure, quality of life should not be used as a trigger for discussing resuscitation, goals of care or advanced care plans. Limitations and challenges in measurement and assessment of...
We investigate the consequence of adjuvant anastrozole in monotherapy or associated with biochanin A (BCA) in ovariectomized (OVX) rat model and the degree of developing bone loss in both conditions.
Most laboratory results are valid for only a certain time period (laboratory tests shelf-life), after which they are outdated and the test needs to be re-administered. Currently, laboratory test shelf...
A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.
Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
