Abstract

Based on data from other malignancies, the number of lymph nodes evaluated and the ratio of metastatic to examined lymph nodes (LNR) may be important predictors of survival. LNR has never been investigated in a large population-based study of patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The...read more

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.

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.
