Neurologic and Neurophysiologic Assessment of Clinical Course in Patients With Intraspinal Processes

2014-08-27 03:14:32 | BioPortfolio


Patients included in the study are treated at the Klinik für Neurochirurgie USZ. The clinical course is documented at Paraplegikerzentrum Balgrist using validated diagnostic procedures (e.g. SCIM, ASIA, neurophysiology).

Study aims:

Prognostic value of clinical diagnosis and additional diagnostic procedures? Which parameters exhibit optimal prognostic power? Differences between tumor/AVM associated lesions and traumatic lesions? What can we learn for pathophysiology and treatment?

- Trial with surgical intervention

18F-FDG PET/CT in Diagnostic and Prognostic Evaluation of Patients With Suspected Recurrence of Chondrosarcoma.

The aim of the study was to analyze the diagnostic and prognostic utility of F-FDG PET/CT to predict the disease-specific survival (DSS) with FDG uptake and tumor grade in recurrent chondrosarcoma.

Tumor-Derived Exosomal Long Noncoding RNAs as Promising Diagnostic Biomarkers for Prostate Cancer.

Exosomal circulating long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in blood are emerging as clinically useful and non-invasive biomarkers for tumor diagnosis. However, normal cells can also secrete exosomes, so it i...

Hypoxic conditions in tumor cells due to the tumor outgrowing its blood supply. It is associated with increased METASTASIS and resistance to RADIOTHERAPY and DRUG THERAPY.

Any diagnostic evaluation using radioactive (unstable) isotopes. This diagnosis includes many nuclear medicine procedures as well as radioimmunoassay tests.

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)
