Retrospective Investigation of the Impacts of Prognosis for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Patients

To investigate whether the additional induction chemotherapy (IC) to concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) was able to improve overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS), and to c...

Radiation Therapy Alone Compared to Radiation Therapy Plus Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Cancer of the Nasopharynx

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It ...

Carmustine Followed By Surgery in Treating Patients With Recurrent Supratentorial Malignant Glioma or Metastatic Brain Neoplasm

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of carmustine ...

Use of PET Imaging to Distinguish Malignant From Benign IPMN

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is a cystic pancreatic lesion that is a precursor to invasive pancreatic cancer. Differentiating whether an IPMN lesion is benign or malignan...

Clinical Study on 5-aminolevulinic Acid Hydrochloride (5-ALA) for Fluorescence-guided Resection of Malignant Gliomas

This study is planned to detect a dose-efficacy relationship between the chosen dose levels of MC506/1 and the extent and quality of fluorescence in the tumour core in patients with newly ...

A multi-institutional retrospective study of carbon-ion radiotherapy for non-squamous cell malignant tumors of the nasopharynx: Subanalysis of Japan Carbon-Ion Radiation Oncology Study Group study 1402 HN.

This multi-institutional retrospective study focused on the clinical outcome of carbon-ion radiotherapy (C-ion RT) for non-squamous cell malignant tumors of the nasopharynx.

Second malignant neoplasms after childhood cancer: A nationwide population-based study in Korea.

Second malignant neoplasm is one of the most devastating late effects of childhood cancers. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence and survival outcomes of patients developing second malignant neo...

Malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumour.

Proliferating trichilemmal tumours are benign but locally aggressive skin neoplasms arising from hair follicles. Rarely, they can become malignant and must be appropriately managed to prevent recurren...

Narrow Band Imaging Endoscopy of the Nasopharynx for Malignancy: An Inter- and Intraobserver Study.

To assess interobserver agreement and intraobserver reproducibility when assessing the nasopharynx for malignancy under white light and narrow band imaging endoscopy because the decision to biopsy hin...

A Pediatric Intra-Axial Malignant SMARCB1-Deficient Desmoplastic Tumor Arising in Meningioangiomatosis.

SMARCB1 inactivation is a well-established trigger event in atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor. Recently, a role for SMARCB1 inactivation has emerged as a mechanism of clonal evolution in other tumor ty...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm but is often wrongly used as a synonym for "cancer." (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.

A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.

The top portion of the pharynx situated posterior to the nose and superior to the SOFT PALATE. The nasopharynx is the posterior extension of the nasal cavities and has a respiratory function.

A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)
