  • clear cell adenocarc
  • Clear-cell adenocarcinoma (CCA) of the vagina (or cervix) is a rare Adenocarcinoma (cancer) often linked to diethylstilbestrol (DES), a drug which was prescribed in the mistaken belief that it prevented miscarriage and ensured a healthy pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), DES Daughters should have a special pap/pelvic exam every year because of their lifelong risk for clear-cell adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucin production
  • The 1999 World Health Organization classification system defined MCACL as a cystic adenocarcinoma with copious mucin production that, histologically, resembles (the more common) mucus-producing cystadenocarcinomas originating in the ovary, breast and pancreas. (wikipedia.org)

  • This mechanism also explains the selection of HER2/neu (also called ERBB2) and the overexpressing (lineage-addicted) cancer cells during the process of carcinogenesis, and the efficacy of targeted therapy against the Her-2 receptor with trastuzumab ( Herceptin ) in the treatment of adenocarcinomas at the gastroesophageal junction.

  • Among HPV-infected women, current and former smokers have roughly two to three times the incidence of invasive cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Several of the most common forms of cancer are adenocarcinomas, and the various sorts of adenocarcinoma vary greatly in all their aspects, so that few useful generalizations can be made about them. (wikipedia.org)

  • however, among people who have smoked fewer than 100 cigarettes in their lifetimes ("never-smokers"), adenocarcinoma is the most common form of lung cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • The adenocarcinoma has an increased incidence in smokers, and is the most common type of lung cancer seen in non-smokers and women. (wikipedia.org)
  • FA can occur in combination with other forms of lung cancer, particularly other variants of adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumour
  • Trend analyses were conducted for incidence, mortality, tumour and patient characteristics, treatment and crude overall survival, according to tumour location (cardia versus non-cardia). (eur.nl)
  • resemble
  • Poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma will not resemble the normal glands (high grade) and will be detected by seeing that they stain positive for mucin (which the glands produce). (wikipedia.org)
  • dysplasia
  • The objective was to estimate the incidence of OAC in patients with BO without dysplasia. (bmj.com)
  • High-grade dysplasia and early stages of adenocarcinoma can be treated by endoscopic resection and new endoscopic therapies such as radiofrequency ablation , whereas advanced stages (submucosal) are generally advised to undergo surgical treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • increases
  • According to the Nurses' Health Study, the risk of adenocarcinoma of the lung increases substantially after a long duration of previous tobacco smoking, with a previous smoking duration of 30 to 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 2.4 compared to never-smokers, and a duration of more than 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 5. (wikipedia.org)
  • glands
  • Adenocarcinomas can arise in many tissues of the body owing to the ubiquitous nature of glands within the body, and, more fundamentally, to the potency of epithelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methods
  • Methods The authors searched MEDLINE and EMBASE from 1966 to 2011 and performed a bibliographic review of previous publications, excluding abstracts, non-peer-reviewed publications and those not published in English, for prospective or retrospective studies of the incidence of OAC in patients with BO.
