• tumor
  • Many factors can cause a rise in tumor markers other than a recurrence. (medhelp.org)
  • We were surprised to find that even with relatively low thyroglobulin levels, and even when there is no sign of a tumor, about 80 percent of patients had a recurrence of their cancer within three to five years," says first author Richard T. Kloos, associate professor of internal medicine and of radiology. (redorbit.com)
  • The current standards are: If there is no internal disease and recurrence is confined to the area of the original tumor, surgery and/or radiation therapy is used, plus tamoxifen in selected cases. (medhelp.org)
  • percentage
  • CRQ produces measures reflecting coordination, such as how often two data series have similar values or reflect similar system states (called percentage recurrence, or %REC), among other measures. (wikipedia.org)
  • density
  • Recurrence period density entropy is useful for characterising the extent to which a time series repeats the same sequence, and is therefore similar to linear autocorrelation and time delayed mutual information, except that it measures repetitiveness in the phase space of the system, and is thus a more reliable measure based upon the dynamics of the underlying system that generated the signal.

  • Theorem
  • There is also a generalization of Birkhoff recurrence theorem for multiple commuting transformations, known as Birkhoff Multiple Recurrence theorem. (planetmath.org)
  • In physics, the Poincaré recurrence theorem states that certain systems will, after a sufficiently long but finite time, return to a state very close to the initial state. (wikipedia.org)
  • Q.E.D.. The theorem does not comment on certain aspects of recurrence which this proof cannot guarantee: There may be some special phases that never return to the starting phase volume, or that only return to the starting volume a finite number of times then never return again. (wikipedia.org)
  • prove
  • E: Exercise The Dana Farber Cancer Institute has done several studies which prove recurrence can be avoided at a rate of 55% in Stage III women who exercise regularly. (dailystrength.org)
  • historic
  • Historic recurrence is the repetition of similar events in history. (wikipedia.org)
  • The concept of historic recurrence has variously been applied to the overall history of the world (e.g., to the rises and falls of empires), to repetitive patterns in the history of a given polity, and to any two specific events which bear a striking similarity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Historic recurrences can sometimes induce a sense of "convergence", "resonance" or déjà vu. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prior to the theory of historic recurrence that was offered by Polybius, a Greek Hellenistic historian (ca 200 - ca 118 BCE), ancient western thinkers who had thought about recurrence had largely been concerned with cosmological rather than historic recurrence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Western philosophers and historians who have discussed various concepts of historic recurrence include Polybius, the Greek historian and rhetorician Dionysius of Halicarnassus (c. 60 BCE - after 7 BCE), Luke the Evangelist, Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527), Giambattista Vico (1668-1744), Arnold J. Toynbee (1889-1975). (wikipedia.org)
  • An eastern concept that bears a kinship to western concepts of historic recurrence is the Chinese concept of the Mandate of Heaven, by which an unjust ruler will lose the support of Heaven and be overthrown. (wikipedia.org)
  • G.W. Trompf notes that most western concepts of historic recurrence imply that "the past teaches lessons for. (wikipedia.org)

  • Ireland, 52, underwent a mastectomy four years ago and wrote a best-selling book, "Life Wish," about her battle with cancer.Because she did not want readers of her book and thousands of other cancer victims to lose hope on hearing second-hand that she had suffered a recurrence of a malignancy, she called a news conference to confront it face-on.

  • cases
  • Other minor cases of recurrence thinking," he writes, "include the isolation of any two specific events which bear a very striking similarity [his emphasis], and the preoccupation with parallelism [his emphasis], that is, with resemblances, both general and precise, between separate sets of historical phenomena.

  • study
  • The study also found that even when Tg levels are very low or undetectable, about 2 to 5 percent of patients still have a recurrence after three to five years. (redorbit.com)
