* Context.--A subset of lung adenocarcinomas appears preferentially sensitive to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). EGFR-activating mutations and never smoking are associated with response to TKIs.

* Context.--Rh(D)-negative women with a large fetomaternal hemmorrahage (FMH) from an Rh(D)-positive fetus are at risk for anti-D alloimmunization if they do not receive adequate Rh immune glbulin (RhIG). Determination of the adequate RhIG dose for these women is a critical laboratory procedure for protecting their future Rh(D)-positive children.

* Context.--The pancreas gives rise to an array of distinct neoplasms that can be solid, cystic, or intraductal and can recapitulate the various lines of differentiation present in the normal gland.
Zamboni, Giuseppe - - 2009
* Context.--A variety of nonneoplastic conditions may form pancreatic masses that mimic carcinoma. Approximately 5% to 10% of pancreatectomies performed with the clinical diagnosis of pancreatic cancer prove on microscopic evaluation to be pseudotumors.
Basturk, Olca - - 2009
* Context.--Cystic lesions of the pancreas are being recognized with increasing frequency and have become a more common finding in clinical practice because of the widespread use of advanced imaging modalities and the sharp drop in the mortality rate of pancreatic surgery. Consequently, in the past 2 decades, the nature ...

* Context.--Metastatic disease is the most critical determinant of resectability of pancreatic cancer and accounts for the poor outcome of patients with this disease. Thus, a better understanding of metastatic pancreatic cancer will afford new opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
Ranganathan, Prathibha - - 2009
* Context.--Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths. Most cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage when the disease is beyond surgical intervention. Molecular studies during the past decade have contributed greatly to our understanding of this disease. Various germ-line and somatic mutations associated with pancreatic ...

* Context.--Pancreatic cytopathology plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of patients with solid and cystic lesions of the pancreas.
Kloppel, Gunter - - 2009
* Context.--Distinguishing chronic pancreatitis from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a well-known challenge, at both the clinical and the morphologic level.
Ottenhof, Niki - - 2009
* Context.--Pancreatic cancer has a poor prognosis with a 5-year survival of less than 5%. Early detection is at present the only way to improve this outlook. This review focuses on the recent advances in our understanding of pancreatic carcinogenesis, the scientific evidence for a multistaged tumor progression, and the ...
Shi, Chanjuan - - 2009
Context.--Approximately 5% to 10% of individuals with pancreatic cancer report a history of pancreatic cancer in a close family member. In addition, several known genetic syndromes, such as familial breast cancer (BRCA2), the Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, and the familial atypical multiple mole melanoma syndrome, have been shown to be associated with ...
Capelli, Paola - - 2009
* Context.--Pancreatic endocrine neoplasms (PENs) are diagnostically challenging tumors whose natural history is largely unknown. Histopathology allows the distinction of 2 categories: poorly differentiated high-grade carcinomas and well-differentiated neoplasms. The latter include more than 90% of PENs whose clinical behavior varies from indolent to malignant and cannot be predicted by ...

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency and the associated features of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) which plays a significant role in the chronic pain syndromes, and also to compare the pain variables in solitary osteoarthritic (OA) patients versus osteoarthritis plus FMS patients, in a group of ...

Intermittent hydrarthrosis (IH) is a monoarticular disease of unknown etiology, characterized by episodic effusions, and it usually affects middle-aged women. Acute phase reactants are within normal range during attacks. Although this non-destructive disease has no definite treatment, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, intraarticular steroids, and radioactive and surgical synovectomy have been used. ...

Undifferentiated connective tissue diseases (UCTD) are heterogeneous disorders characterized by a wide variety of signs and symptoms. Approximately 30% of cases of the disease will evolve to defined connective tissue disease; however, 70% will maintain an undifferentiated clinical course or go to complete remission. The most characteristic symptoms of UCTD ...

Congenital anomalies of the odontoid process have been described in the literature. Os odonteideum is a seperate odontoid process from the body of the axis. It is the most common anomaly of the odontoid process. It may cause cervical instability, atlontoaxial dislocation and myelopathy. Os odontoideum must be distinguished from ...

Although many of parasitic infestations are known to cause arthritis development, articular findings related to parasitosis is rarely discussed in literature. The protozoa, Giardia lamblia is often known as gastroenteritis agent, on the other hand rarely causes reactive arthritis. The clinical presentation related to articulation are arthritis and arthralgia. In ...

Behcet's disease (BD) is a systemic vasculitis affecting all vessel types. The etiology and pathogenesis of the disease are not clearly known. Tumor necrosis factor [alpha] (TNF-[alpha]) is a major proinflammatory molecule that has been shown to have a critical role in the pathogenesis of BD. This role was also ...
