Paratesticular sarcoma with synchronous renal carcinoma.

CONCLUSIONS: The UPS is a heterogeneous group with an exclusion immunohistochemical diagnosis. Its management requires a multidisciplinary approach; the initial surgical treatment is accepted for the paratesticular mass with high section radical orchiectomy. Although there is insufficient evidence of the efficacy of adjunctive lymphadenectomy, chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. PMID: 28891799 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS The findings indicate that the BTLA/HVEM pathway does be involved in pathogenesis of acute rejection following kidney transplantation, as well as the induction of transplant tolerance. This pathway may therefore be a useful target for therapy against acute rejection after kidney transplantation. PMID: 29352109 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract An oncology nurse's warmth, humor, and compassionate care have helped even the odds in my wife's decade-long battle with incurable cancer. Needle phobia and a complex chemotherapy regimen have made for a challenging course of treatment. However, working closely with us, my wife's care team has given us back the control that can so easily ebb with remission and relapse.

Authors: Effendi-Ys R Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most frequent cancer in males, the second in females, and is the second leading cause of cancer related death worldwide. Within Indonesia's 250 million population, the incidence rates for CRC per 100,000 population were 15.2 for males and 10.2 for females, and estimated 63,500 cases per year.  More than 50% of colorectal cancer patients will develop metastasis. CRC is still the main cause of tumor-related death, and although most CRC patients are treated with surgery to remove the tumor tissue, some of the CRC patients recurred. Chemotherapy u...

CONCLUSIONS: The PFS of progressive RAI-refractory DTC patients treated with sorafenib was consistent with the findings of the DECISION trial. Disease-related symptom, lung-only metastasis, a daily maintenance dose, and Tg reduction were significantly associated with PFS. These results suggest that sorafenib is an effective treatment option for patients with progressive RAI-refractory DTC. PMID: 29350109 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study evaluated the preoperative features for predicting the LCLN metastasis of MTC. Methods We included 26 MTC patients with LCLN metastasis at initial surgery (N1b group) and 47 MTC patients without any LN metastasis or recurrence of disease (N0-NED group). We evaluated the association between LCLN metastasis and preoperative clinical and sonographic characteristics (size, location, solid component, shape, margin, echogenicity, calcification, and subcapsular location of the tumor). Results There were no significant differences in age and sex between the N1b and N0-NED groups. Preoperative serum levels of calcitonin ...
