• This chapter focuses on the diagnosis and classification of atypical melanocytic neoplasms and melanoma in pediatric patients. (springer.com)
  • Here we describe 3 pediatric patients with linear scleroderma en coup de sabre who presented with neurologic abnormalities before or concurrent with the diagnosis of their skin disease. (aappublications.org)
  • A diagnosis of linear scleroderma en coup de sabre was made based on the characteristic skin changes observed. (aappublications.org)
  • Logistic regression analysis was used to study the importance of each of MRI findings in making a diagnosis. (elsevier.com)
  • Logistic regression analyses were used to identify the risk factors associated with pneumothorax. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • A logistic regression analysis showed that only the total number of cysts in the right parenchymal lower lobe and the total number of cysts located on the pleural surface in the right middle lobe were needed to classify a patient as to whether or not he or she was likely to have a pneumothorax. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Next, the RORs were adjusted for coadministered antidiabetic drugs using logistic regression analysis. (medsci.org)
  • In the logistic regression analyses, DPP-4 inhibitors (adjusted ROR 0.32, 95% CI 0.10-1.00) and metformin (adjusted ROR 0.46, 95% CI 0.34-0.62) were inversely associated with amiodarone-associated hyperthyroidism and interstitial lung disease, respectively. (medsci.org)
  • Furthermore, we demonstrate that developmental programs utilized for skin hair follicle regeneration, such as Wnt, are hijacked to sustain tumour growth and that the retinoic acid (RA) signalling pathway promotes tumour regression by inhibiting Wnt signalling. (nih.gov)

  • Therapy may influence the prognosis, but even untreated neoplasms are usually slow to metastasize (in such cases usually only to the local lymph nodes). (vetlink.co.za)
  • AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma is a clonal neoplasm. (nih.gov)
  • These data suggest that Kaposi's sarcoma (at least in the AIDS setting) is a clonal neoplasm. (nih.gov)
  • Sixty SCID and 60 nude mice for each of three human tumor cell lines (HGL9, HSTS26, HCT15) and for each of five murine cell lines (FSC1, FSC2, FSM1, FSM2, E01) and 60 SCID and 60 C3H mice for the FSa2 spontaneous C3H sarcoma were studied. (nih.gov)
  • Additionally, treatment has been clouded by numerous reports in the literature of near universal complete spontaneous resolution and conversely arguments that every lesion demands treatment. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Complete spontaneous regression of cancer: four case reports, review of literature, and discussion of possible mechanisms involved. (semanticscholar.org)
  • A 72-year-old woman with advanced ascending colon cancer and an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreatic head was treated by right hemicolectomy (RHC) and pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PpPD). (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Combining speculoscopy (visual examination of the cervix using a blue-white chemiluminescent light source) with Papanicolaou (Pap) smear has been shown to significantly increase the detection of cervical neoplasms. (aafp.org)
  • This increased sensitivity, however, may be achieved at the expense of an increase in false-positive results compared with Pap smears alone, thus causing unwarranted distress and expense to women who have no underlying cervical neoplasms. (aafp.org)
  • A fundamental characteristic of neoplasms is clonality, in that they arise from clonal replication of a single cell whereas reactive processes are derived from polyclonal proliferation. (nih.gov)
  • Because of its high tumor selectivity, excellent cosmetic effect and low toxicity, photomedicine seems to be a promising tool for diagnosing (CIN and small intraperitoneal ovarian cancer nodules) and treating some gynecological neoplasm (VIN, intraperitoneal ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer).
