A Study on Non-invasive Early Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors and Differentiation of Benign and Malignant Nodules

2019-11-03 15:10:59 | BioPortfolio


Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the gastrointestinal tract, and the incidence rate in China has increased year by year in recent years.Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are not sensitive to radiotherapy and traditional infusion chemotherapy. Currently, they are generally treated with surgery, but they are prone to recurrence and metastasis.For nodules with a particle size between 2 and 5 cm, there may be both benign and malignant, and there is still a lack of fast and accurate methods for distinguishing benign and malignant.Many benign nodules were removed (in the pathological examination of postoperative resected tissue). In addition, if it is found to be late, there is a possibility of invading surrounding tissues and metastasis, so that it is impossible to cure. Therefore, early diagnosis and early surgery and benign and malignant differentiation of small nodules are the key to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.At present, second-generation gene sequencing (NGS) and liquid biopsy are rarely reported in the field of GIST. A few domestic and foreign studies have found that it can detect rare mutation types, and may find secondary gene mutations early, which has potential applicability, but Overall, the clinical guidance of these NGS-based studies focuses on prognosis and drug resistance , as well as some studies based on low-throughput platforms. Therefore, early diagnosis and benign and malignant discrimination based on high-throughput sequencing and liquid biopsy have significant clinical significance for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.

Large collections of small molecules (molecular weight about 600 or less), of similar or diverse nature which are used for high-throughput screening analysis of the gene function, protein interaction, cellular processing, biochemical pathways, or other chemical interactions.

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.
