• commonly
  • The purpose of this research study is to find out whether adding an experimental vaccine called rindopepimut (also known as CDX-110) to the commonly used drug bevacizumab can improve progression free survival (slowing the growth of tumors) of patients with relapsed EGFRvIII positive glioblastoma. (stanford.edu)
  • morbidity
  • Recent data suggest that subtotal resection (STR) followed by adjuvant radiotherapy (XRT) may be an appealing substitute for gross-total resection (GTR), providing similar rates of tumor control without the morbidity associated with aggressive resection. (jove.com)
  • Abstract
  • Impact of treatment paradigm and elective nodal coverage on resection status and failure patterns in paranasal sinus tumors [abstract]. (wakehealth.edu)
  • surgery
  • In these cases, the tumor is more difficult to remove and radical surgery is necessary. (earsurgery.org)
  • Vaccines consisting of heat shock protein-peptide complexes made from a person's own tumor tissue may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells that may remain after surgery. (stanford.edu)
  • Imaging
  • A combination of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scanning, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and angiography is ideal for proper diagnosis and localization of the tumors. (medscape.com)
  • Imaging studies, including a CT scanning, MRI scanning and MR angiography, should be obtained to determine the limits and extent of any glomus tumors. (earsurgery.org)
  • tissues
  • Choristomas are tumors that are composed of tissues not normally found at their site of occurrence, instead arising from the sequestration of surface ectoderm by closure of the underlying suture lines, neural tube closure, and diverticulation of the cerebral hemispheres. (blogspot.com)
  • They also invade surrounding tissues and are metastatic, initiating the growth of similar tumors in distant organs. (thefreedictionary.com)
