Prognostic value of the neutrophil-lymphocyte, platelet-lymphocyte and monocyte-lymphocyte ratio in breast cancer patients.
Prognostic value of the neutrophil-lymphocyte, platelet-lymphocyte and monocyte-lymphocyte ratio in breast cancer patients. Oncol Lett. 2019 Dec;18(6):6275-6283 Authors: Huszno J, Kolosza Z Abstract The aim of the present study was to assess the blood the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and monocyte-lymphocyte ratio (MLR) as prognostic factors in breast cancer (BC) patients. A retrospective analysis of 436 BC patients who were treated at COI (Gliwice, Poland) between January 2005 and June 2018 was performed. The prognostic value [overall survival (OS)] of the pre-treatment PLR, NLR and MLR was assessed by univariate and multivariate analysis. The 5-year OS was lower in the NLR>2.65 compared with that in the NLR≤2.65 group (82.5 vs. 89.6%; P=0.053), and significantly lower in the subgroup of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC; 70.3 vs. 89.3%; P=0.034) and in patients whose tumors had an estrogen receptor-negative [ER(-)] status (66.6 vs. 83.6%; P=0.018). The 5-year OS was lower in patients with PLR>190.9 compared with that in the PLR≤190.9 group (78.7 vs. 89.4%; P=0.020). A poor OS rate associated with an elevated PLR was also observed in the subgroups with TNBC (68.2 vs. 88.5%; P=0.032) and with ER(-) status tumors (57.7 vs. 83.6%, P=0.002). An elevated MLR (>0.28) was not associated with OS time (P=0.830). Multivariate analysis revealed that the NLR and PLR were insignificant negative prognostic factors,...
I am currently in my senior year of undergrad, and i honestly don't know what my chances of getting into a mid-tier medical school is since my scores are kinda low average. I personally feel i am a little different because im ADHD and Dyslexic and coupled with my experience as a whole. Currently, i have a 3.4 overall GPA scored a 505 on the MCAT The second author on Triple-negative Metaplastic Breast Cancer research paper. I work full time as a Regional Representative for a hemp company... WAMC since i am out the ordinary case
(Cancer Research UK) A new type of scan that involves magnetizing molecules allows doctors to see in real-time which regions of a breast tumor are active, according to research funded by Cancer Research UK and published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences today. This is the first time researchers have demonstrated that this scanning technique, called carbon-13 hyperpolarized imaging, can be used to monitor breast cancer.
(University of Zurich) An imaging approach developed at UZH enables the study of breast cancer tissue in greater detail. It uses 35 biomarkers to identify the different cell types in breast tumors and its surrounding area compared to the current standard of testing single markers. This increases the precision of tumor analysis and classification - and improves personalized diagnostics for breast cancer patients.

This model is based on the use of 4T1 murine breast carcinoma cells. 4T1-derived tumors recapitulate the main steps of human breast cancer progression, including epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and metastases to lung and lymph nodes.Bioluminescence imaging revealed the appearance of secondary lesions to the lung and lymph nodes and sporadically to th...
Women whose periods stop before the age of 40 are at greater risk of diabetes, heart disease, strokes, asthma and breast cancer, the study found. The UK menopause average is 51.
The risk of colon or breast cancer in metabolically healthy obese (MHO) were lower than that in metabolically abnormal obese (MAO). We hypothesized that the risk of incident gastric cancer in MHO is lower than...
