  • subjects
  • To perform a comprehensive clinicopathological study in these subjects. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • To perform a comprehensive clinicopathological study in these subjects with complete virological, immunophenotypic, and molecular characterization of retrieved tumor tissues and peripheral blood samples for purposes of identifying prognostic and predictive biomarkers of clinical outcome (i.e. treatment response, freedom from disease progression, and overall survival) in which to begin to frame pragmatic, risk-adapted therapeutic interventions suitable for the resource constrained setting in sub-Saharan Africa. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The goals of this study are to develop a database of recent DILI cases, identify the clinical, environmental and genetic risk factors that predict DILI, develop standardized instruments and terminology and perform careful longitudinal follow-up of DILI subjects. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • Risk
  • Recently, total cancer risk was reported to be modestly increased in women and men with elevated levels of fasting glucose in a very large cohort study of 1.3 million Korean men and women with 53,833 incident cases of cancer ( 3 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Here, we report the results from a prospective study in northern Sweden, with the aim to estimate the relationship of hyperglycemia, as measured by fasting and postload glucose, with the risk of cancer overall and the risk of cancer at specific organ sites. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Studies have shown that intense, intermittent exposures to UVR, as measured by sunburn frequency, have a higher melanoma-attributable risk than chronic UVR exposure. (aappublications.org)
  • 4 , 5 A recent meta-analysis of 51 studies found that ever reporting a sunburn during childhood almost doubled the risk for the development of cutaneous melanoma in adulthood. (aappublications.org)
  • To conduct a prospective study of pediatric transfusion recipients to determine the risk of transmitting various infectious agents by blood transfusion. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In addition, by contributing pre and post-transfusion samples from blood recipients and their linked donor samples, this study will help establish a large serum and cell repository that will allow for the future determination of whether virtually any infectious agent is transfusion-transmitted and a potential risk to blood recipients.
