  • Lymphoma
  • HIV infection is associated with three AIDS-defining malignancies (Kaposi's sarcoma, high-grade B-cell non- Hodgkin's lymphoma and invasive cervical cancer) as well as an increased risk of a number of other malignancies. (bhiva.org)
  • The early chapters of these guidelines consider the three AIDS-defining malignancies, Kaposi's sarcoma, high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (including primary cerebral lymphoma) and cervical cancer. (bhiva.org)
  • These chapters are followed by chapters on the non-AIDS-defining malignancies including anal cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma, multicentric Castleman's disease and other non-AIDS-defining malignancies, whilst the final chapter discusses the role of antiretroviral therapy and opportunistic infection prophylaxis in the management of malignancy in people with HIV infection. (bhiva.org)
  • tumors
  • The AMC mission is to investigate new treatment and prevention interventions for malignancies in people living with HIV and to study the pathobiology of these tumors in the context of clinical trials. (emmes.com)
  • Some malignancies, especially gliomas (25%), as well as adenocarcinomas of the pancreas and lung, are associated with hypercoagulability (the tendency to form blood clots) for reasons that are incompletely understood, but may be related to factors secreted by the tumors, in particular a circulating pool of cell-derived tissue factor-containing microvesicles. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Patients with HIV-associated malignancies should therefore only be managed in a centre dealing with large numbers of patients with these tumours. (bhiva.org)
  • We recommend that all patients with HIV and malignancy should be referred to centres that have developed expertise in the management of these diseases and serve an HIV cohort of 4500. (bhiva.org)
  • In patients with malignancy-associated hypercoagulable states, the blood may spontaneously form clots in the portal vessels, the deep veins of the extremities (such as the leg), or the superficial veins anywhere on the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • The clinical role of adoptive immunotherapy in the treatment of EBV-induced malignancies will be presented, as well as the areas of current investigation. (springer.com)
  • By correlating clinical observation with surgical and autopsy findings, Trousseau recognized that a localized cancer could induce a generalized hypercoagulable state in which thrombosis could occur elsewhere in the body, such as in extremities with visceral malignancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevention
  • The recognition of an increased risk of certain malignancies in immunocompromised individuals has led to a growing understanding of the role of the immune system in the surveillance for and prevention of neoplasms. (springer.com)
  • treatment
  • Each of the relevant malignancies is addressed individually, with an overview of treatment approaches, assessment of evidence regarding their efficacy, and discussion of therapeutic controversies. (springer.com)
  • A urogenital pelvic malignancy is a regional lymph node involvement in urogenital malignancies (category N in the TNM classification system) is a significant radiologic finding, with important implications for treatment and prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • Malignancy is most familiar as a characterization of cancer . (wikipedia.org)
  • BOSTON - Scientists said Thursday that they have isolated a gene that instructs the body to build tiny new blood vessels, a crucial step in cancer growth, and they say this could open new strategies to defeat malignancies. (latimes.com)
  • In this chapter, I review the history of clonality testing in cancer, describe the scientific principles on which clonality-based testing rest, and then describe the numerous techniques that are now available for diagnosing hematolymphoid malignancies by demonstrating their clonal nature. (springer.com)
  • form
  • Vaginal bleeding, contact bleeding (one most common form being bleeding after sexual intercourse), or (rarely) a vaginal mass may indicate the presence of malignancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • The Trousseau sign of malignancy or Trousseau's syndrome is a medical sign involving episodes of vessel inflammation due to blood clot (thrombophlebitis) which are recurrent or appearing in different locations over time (thrombophlebitis migrans or migratory thrombophlebitis). (wikipedia.org)
  • control
  • Identification of target antigens for the human cytotoxic t cell response to epstein-barr virus (ebv): implications for the immune control of ebv-positive malignancies. (springer.com)
