Breast cancer metastasis is a demanding problem in clinical treatment of patients with breast cancer. It is necessary to examine the mechanisms of metastasis for developing therapies. Classification of the aggressiveness of breast cancer is an important issue in biological study and for clinical decisions. Although aggressive and non‑aggressive breast cancer cells can be easily distinguished among different cell lines, it is very difficult to distinguish in clinical practice. The aim of the current study was to use the gene expression analysis from breast cancer cell lines to predict clinical outcomes of patients with breast cancer...

Previous studies have revealed the clinical significance of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) in gastric cancer, whereas the role of the cytokines that orchestrate TAM polarization in gastric cancer remains elusive. The present study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) expression in patients with gastric cancer. Intratumoral GM-CSF expression was investigated by immunohistochemical staining in 408 retrospectively enrolled patients. Kaplan-Meier analysis and Cox regression models were used to evaluate the prognostic value of GM-CSF expression...

Cholesterol increases the risk of colorectal cancer. Liver X receptor (LXR), retinoid X receptor (RXR)α and sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP)-1c are transcriptional regulators of lipid metabolism. Chicken ovalbumin upstream promoter-transcription factor II (COUP-TFII) serves an essential role in angiogenesis and development, but its role in cancer is controversial. The expression of COUP-TFII, LXR, RXRα and SREBP-1c in colorectal cancer, as well as their association with clinicopathologic features, was assessed, and their utility as prognostic indicators in colorectal cancer evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: Various definitions of bleeding have been used in perioperative studies without systematic assessment of the diagnostic criteria for their independent association with outcomes important to patients. Our proposed definition of bleeding impacting mortality after noncardiac surgery (BIMS) is bleeding that is independently associated with death during or within 30 days after noncardiac surgery. We describe our analysis plan to sequentially 1) establish the diagnostic criteria for BIMS, 2) estimate the independent contribution of BIMS to 30-day mortality and 3) develop and internally validate a clinical prediction guide to estimate patient-specific risk of BIMS...

OBJECTIVES: Recently, a new Nutritional Competence Score (NCS) has been shown to associate with hospitalization and outcome in hemodialysis patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the dynamics, the individual components, and the impact of hospitalizations of this score's trajectory in the year before death. In addition, we investigated whether dynamics in the NCS add additional independent prognostic value over a single cross-sectional assessment. DESIGN: We included all Fresenius Medical Care North America patients who initiated hemodialysis between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2011 with data on all 5 NCS components (serum albumin, creatinine, phosphate, equilibrated normalized protein catabolic rate, and interdialytic weight gain) in at least 1 month...

BACKGROUND: Tube feeding dependence is a commonly observed debilitating side-effect of curative (chemo-) radiation in head and neck cancer patients that severely affects quality of life. Prevention of this side-effect can be obtained using advanced radiation techniques, such as IMRT. For radiotherapy treatment plan optimization, it has become increasingly important to develop prediction models that enable clinicians to predict the risk of tube feeding dependence for individual patients...
