  • Tumor
  • 2. Carcinoma is the general term used to indicate a malignancy or malignant tumor. (differencebetween.net)
  • Organisation (WHO), a true signet-ring cell carcinoma (SRCca) is defined as an adenocarcinoma in which the predominant component (more than 50% of the tumor) consists of isolated or small groups of SRC in the stroma. (knowcancer.com)
  • If the tumor contains less than 50% of those cells, it is generally considered as an adenocarcinoma (ADC). (knowcancer.com)
  • A composite gastric tumor usually consists of both a common and a special type of carcinoma, that is, well- or moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma and HAC [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • We examined the histological phenotypes of a composite gastric tumor consisting of AFPC/HAC, NEC, and tubular adenocarcinoma and investigated the cellular phenotypes of AFPC and NEC by evaluating the immunohistochemical expressions of MUC2, MUC5AC, MUC6, CDX2, and SOX2. (hindawi.com)
  • Using oligonucleotide microarrays, we analyzed mRNA expression levels corresponding to 12,600 transcript sequences in 186 lung tumor samples, including 139 adenocarcinomas resected from the lung. (nih.gov)
  • However, in a more recent series of 4,212 consecutive lung cancer cases, only one (0.024%) lesion was determined to be a "pure" giant-cell carcinoma after complete sectioning of all available tumor tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma is a cutaneous condition characterized by a tumor that usually presents on the chest, scalp, or vulva of middle- to older-aged persons. (wikipedia.org)
  • Combined small cell lung carcinoma (or c-SCLC, and rarely rendered as "small-cell lung carcinoma") is a form of multiphasic lung cancer that is diagnosed by a pathologist when a malignant tumor arising from transformed cells originating in lung tissue contains a component of small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) admixed with one (or more) components of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). (wikipedia.org)
  • Significantly
  • Significantly, elevated miR-21 expression in noncancerous tissue of SCC patients and reduced levels of miR-375 in cancerous tissue of adenocarcinoma patients with Barrett's were strongly associated with worse prognosis. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Giant-cell carcinomas have been reported to be diagnosed in a significantly younger population than all non-small-cell carcinomas considered as a group. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Does adenocarcinoma always require the surgery for the clostomy bag? (cancer.org)
  • My own medical oncologist told me the surgery with permanent colostomy is the standard for adenocarcinoma anal cancer. (cancer.org)
  • Gastric small cell carcinoma successfully treated by surgery and postoperative chemotherapy consisting of cisplatin and S-1: report of a case," Surgery Today , vol. 37, no. 11, pp. 989-994, 2007. (hindawi.com)
  • Most small cell lung carcinomas (SCLC's) metastasize to distant organs early on in their course, rendering surgery ineffective in curing the cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Primary
  • The diagnostic potential of expression profiling is emphasized by its ability to discriminate primary lung adenocarcinomas from metastases of extra-pulmonary origin. (nih.gov)
  • Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinomas have been misinterpreted as metastatic lesions. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • miRNA expression was measured in cancerous and adjacent noncancerous tissue pairs collected from 100 adenocarcinoma and 70 SCC patients enrolled at four clinical centers from the United States, Canada, and Japan. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Endocrine cell carcinoma of the stomach (in Japanese)," Byori to Rinsho (Pathology and Clinical Medicine) , vol. 23, no. 9, pp. 966-973, 2005. (hindawi.com)
  • Despite the large number of histological variants of lung carcinoma, oncologists have long tended to favor a dichotomous division into small cell and non-small cell forms, based on differences in clinical behavior and response to treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • While there have been no randomized clinical trials of targeted agents in combined small-cell lung carcinoma (c-SCLC),[citation needed] some small case series suggest that some may be useful in c-SCLC. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucin
  • Highly differentiated adenocarcinomas form SRCCs via a loss of adherens and tight junctions that typically separate MUC4, a mucin protein, and ErbB2, an oncogenic receptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disease
  • Because of the distinct natural history of small cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix, and because patients with this condition are considered to have a systemic disease, the treatment strategies for this disease are different from those of other carcinomas" (ajronline.org). (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • Merryman JI, Rosol TJ, McCauley LK , Werkmeister JR, Suter MM , Capen CC. Regulation of parathyroid hormone-related protein production by a squamous carcinoma cell line in vitro . (dentisty.org)
  • SRCCs are dedifferentiated adenocarcinomas that lose the capability for cell-cell interaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a result, the ErbB2/ErbB3 signaling pathway becomes constitutively activated, cell-cell interactions are lost and signet carcinomas are formed. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • For example, one group found a positive correlation between persistently activated tyrosine-phosphorylated STAT3 (pSTAT3), found in 50% of lung adenocarcinomas, and IL-6. (wikipedia.org)
