Our study indicates that HRQL of DTF patients was negatively affected in several domains. A DTF-specific HRQL measure could improve our understanding of short- and long-term effects and, ideally, can be used in both clinic and for research purposes.

Authors: Zhou J, Zheng S, Liu T, Liu Q, Chen Y, Ma R, Tan D, Lu X Abstract Although M2 tumour-associated macrophages (M2 TAMs) have been shown to be associated with the progression and metastasis of breast cancer, their role in oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains less well understood. Therefore, to understand the clinicopathological significance of infiltrated M2 TAMs in ESCC, statistical analysis was performed after immunohistochemical evaluation of CD163 expression, a well-accepted surface marker of M2 TAMs in ESCC. To gain insight into the effect of M2 TAMs, ESCC cell lines Eca109 and KYSE150 cell...
