Thai Cancer Anemia Study (TCAS) is a prospective survey that will track anemia management in an adult cancer population. This survey is not intended to interfere with standard medical practices for handling anemia. Information on laboratory values including target and achieved hemaglobin (Hb) levels during chemotherapy cycles, use of blood transfusions, iron supplementation, and epoetin will be collected in addition to information on cancer status and treatment. Data on the level that triggers clinicians to decide on the need for anemia therapy will also be collected. Each patient included in the survey will be followed for six months. Observational Study - No investigational drug administered
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Adult Cancer Patients

We sought to evaluate whether preoperative anemia was an important determinant of survival in gastric cancer (GC). A single institution cohort of 2163 GC patients who underwent curative resection were...
It is possible that the relative lack of progress in treatment outcomes among adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients with cancer is caused by a difference in disease biology compared with the corre...
This study explored the cumulative incidence of anemia after gastrectomy in patients with early-stage gastric cancer and evaluated the relationship between postgastrectomy anemia and nutritional facto...
Limited information exists on emergency department (ED) visits for adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients with cancer. We examined the clinical reasons for ED visits, and outcomes, for AYAs with ca...
An iron scarcity often occurs in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), a biomarker of acute kidney injury, is associated with iron metabolism. The present st...
The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.

Viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV; INFECTIOUS ANEMIA VIRUS, EQUINE). It is characterized by intermittent fever, weakness, and anemia. Chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.
A form of PERITONITIS seen in patients with TUBERCULOSIS, characterized by lesion either as a miliary form or as a pelvic mass on the peritoneal surfaces. Most patients have ASCITES, abdominal swelling, ABDOMINAL PAIN, and other systemic symptoms such as FEVER; WEIGHT LOSS; and ANEMIA.
A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia.
