The main purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of bevacizumab in combination with radiation therapy to see what effects (good or bad) they have on patients with soft tissue sa...
1.1 To determine the recommended phase II dose for gemcitabine in combination with a fixed dose of docetaxel and bevacizumab. 1.2 To determine the efficacy of the combination of gemci...
To improve rectal cancer management, there is a need for better visualization of drug targets in rectal cancer to identify patients who might benefit from specific targeted treatments. Mol...
Cholangiocarcinoma is an epithelial cell malignancy arising from varying locations within the biliary tree and is difficult to diagnose due to the often-silent clinical nature. The best ch...
There is a need for better visualization of resection margins and detection of small tumor deposits during surgery for pancreatic cancer. Optical molecular imaging of pancreatic ductal ade...
Melorheostosis is a rare non-hereditary sclerosing bone dysplasia which predominantly affects the appendicular skeleton. Although melorheostosis is typically recognized as an osseous lesion, associate...
This case series illustrates a simplified soft tissue management, namely, the subperiosteal peri-implant augmented layer (SPAL), to increase hard and soft tissue dimensions at the most coronal portion...
Phase II randomised study of maintenance treatment with bevacizumab or bevacizumab plus metronomic chemotherapy after first-line induction with FOLFOXIRI plus Bevacizumab for metastatic colorectal cancer patients: the MOMA trial.
Alternating induction and maintenance phases is a common strategy in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Metronomic chemotherapy (metroCT) may represent a well-tolerated chemotherapy backbone for max...
Soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of neoplasias that due to their often clinically silent appearance often remain undetected or experience delayed treatment. Especially soft tissue swelli...
Bacterial skin and soft tissue infections are abundant worldwide, and many are caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Indeed, S. aureus is the leading cause of skin and soft tissue infections in the USA. He...
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Neoplasms developing from some structure of the connective and subcutaneous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective or soft tissue.
A sarcoma containing large spindle cells of smooth muscle. Although it rarely occurs in soft tissue, it is common in the viscera. It is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of the gastrointestinal tract and uterus. The median age of patients is 60 years. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1865)
