Abstract

The prognostic factors related to lymph node involvement [lymph node status, the number of positive lymph nodes, lymph node ratio (LNR)] and the number of nodes evaluated in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma after pancreatectomy are poorly defined. A total of 167 patients who had ...read more

Lymphoid Neoplasms

Lymphoid neoplasms are derived from cells that frequently have features that recapitulate stages of normal b-, t-, and nk-cell differentiation and function. Lymphoid neoplasms include the following morphologic types: follicular center cell, lymphoblast (lymphocytic), immunoblast, plasma cell, and large granular lymphocyte (lgl). Here is the latest research on lymphoid neoplasms.

Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma holds a significant mortality risk, largely due to its late diagnosis and ineffective chemotherapeutic response. This gastrointestinal malignancy offers a poor prognosis and the only potential cure is through surgical resection. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
