Abstract

The presence or absence of lymph node metastases is known to be an important prognostic factor for patients with pancreatic cancer. Few studies have investigated the ratio of the number of lymph nodes harboring metastatic cancer to the total number of lymph nodes examined (lymph node ra...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.
