Post-transplant Cancer Incidence and Survival in Patients With or Without Pre-transplant Cancer

2015-07-09 08:38:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients with previous malignancies have increasingly been accepted for renal transplantation. However, post-transplant malignancy risk and survival rates of these patients are unknown. Our aim was to assess if previous malignancies pose an unnecessarily high risk of post-transplant malignant tumours and if the organs as a resource are too limited for investment in this patient group.

Detection of Nonhematologic Neoplasms by Routine Flow Cytometry Analysis.

We investigated the ability of routine flow cytometry (FC) to detect nonhematologic neoplasms (non-HN) using antibody panels routinely used for the diagnosis of hematologic neoplasms.

IgA plasma cell neoplasms are characterized by poorer long-term survival and increased genomic complexity compared to IgG neoplasms.

The characteristics of the IgA plasma cell neoplasms are not clearly reported in the literature. The main goal of this study is to examine IgA plasma cell neoplasms (PCN) and to compare them to IgG le...

Diagnostic traps awaiting the head/neck pathologist: "Cytoplasm-poor" neoplasms.

Beyond squamous carcinoma, a variety of diagnostically challenging neoplasms arise within various head and neck sites. This is particularly the situation with neoplasms where little cellular cytoplasm...

Impact of age on clinicopathological features and survival of epithelial ovarian neoplasms in reproductive age.

Little is known about the effect of age on the prognosis of epithelial ovarian neoplasms. In the reproductive age, fertility-sparing surgery had been widely implemented. This study aimed to elucidate ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Neoplasms located in the vasculature system, such as ARTERIES and VEINS. They are differentiated from neoplasms of vascular tissue (NEOPLASMS, VASCULAR TISSUE), such as ANGIOFIBROMA or HEMANGIOMA.

Neoplasms composed of cells from the deepest layer of the epidermis. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the stratum basale.
