The objective of this study is to explore the impact of initiation of ART with different regimens in naïve MSM (in the setting of acute and chronic HIV-infection) on the probability of tr...
Clinical data (prostate-specific antigen [PSA] response after radiotherapy) are being used to build a mathematical model to describe the clinical results of radiotherapy for prostate cance...
Parents of infants who have been thrombocytopenic for 3-4 days will be approached for consent to enter the study. For the purposes of the study, thrombocytopenia will be defined as a plate...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the risk factors for mortality of sepsis and to create mathematical models to predict the survival rate based on electronic health records that...
This is a feasibility study to gain preliminary information regarding whether breast imaging with or without a core needle biopsy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) but before surgery ca...
To investigate Ki-67 index with regard to its ability to predict achievement of pathologic complete response (pCR) to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) in breast cancer patient.
Accumulation of PIK3CA, ESR1, and GATA3 mutations results in resistance to endocrine therapy in breast cancer patients; however, the response of these genes to chemotherapy is unclear. Therefore, we s...
The DNA damage response (DDR) protects cells against genomic instability. Surprisingly, little is known about the differences in DDR across tissues, which may affect cancer evolutionary trajectories a...
To evaluate the ultrasound (US) response in patients with breast cancer (BC) during neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC).
Anthracyclines are associated with significant toxicities whereas nonanthracyclines have proven to be better tolerated. A 21-gene assay allows clinicians to predict who will not benefit from adjuvant ...
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)
Methods to identify and characterize cancer in the early stages of disease and predict tumor behavior.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
