The goal of this study is to ascertain the feasibility and safety of the procedure using SilkBridge - a biocompatible silk fibroin-based scaffold - for the regeneration of sensory nerve fi...
Participants with a traumatic sensory nerve injury in the hand will be recruited to the study. Participants found to have a nerve gap of at least 5 mm and no greater than 20mm will undergo...
Investigators aim to identify the key phenotypes (biological, psychological, genetic) involved in the transition from acute to chronic neuropathic pain (NP) by comparison of the neuropathi...
Over the past 10 years, there have been substantial improvements in breast reconstruction by plastic surgeons, and much has been achieved in aesthetic restoration after mastectomy. Advance...
To assess the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of recombinant human nerve growth factor ( rhNGF ) in the treatment of HIV-associated sensory neuropathy. AS PER AMENDMENT 5/6/97: To compa...
Previous studies have shown that re-neurorrhaphy of a distal coaptation at an appropriate time after nerve grafting can upregulate neurotrophins in rat spinal cord neurons. The objective of the presen...
Proximal nerve injuries and delayed nerve repair lead to reduced peripheral nerve regeneration. Poor functional results after nerve injury are clinically a very challenging problem. Experimental studi...
Peripheral sensory nerve injuries present a significant yet common challenge in acute hand trauma surgery. Standard treatment remains microsurgical end-to-end nerve repair where appropriate. Permanent...
The sural nerve is a common donor site for nerve reconstruction. The only study describing outcomes in paediatric patients was following bilateral sural nerve harvest before the age of 1 year. Bilater...
The accumulating evidence indicates that weight gain in adulthood is more predictive of breast cancer risk than absolute body weight. However, the relative impact of timing of weight gain in adulthood...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
