relevant, the CTC status (EPISPOT and CellSearch method) emerged as the second best independent predictor of OS (P = 0.
According to several studies, (28-31) tumor restricted to the peribronchial or perivascular soft tissue at the margin, or the presence of lymphatic permeation alone at the margin, is also prognostically
This is of major clinical importance, since it strongly suggests that NPM1 mutations may allow dissection of the heterogeneous group of AML into prognostically
However, given that these approaches identify prognostically
meaningful groups, some have suggested that a global molecular analysis at both the RNA and protein levels would lead to more accurate prognostic classification .
Because hallucinations progress, the concept of benign hallucinations is prognostically
The presence of the ON on prereduction radiograph appears prognostically

In the [HF-ACTION] study, Galectin-3 appeared to be prognostically
meaningful when it was placed in an unadjusted model, but the moment either NT-proBNP or renal function was entered into the model, Galectin-3 fell out.
As such, our data are consistent with recent investigations (7-9) but also present new evidence, as they demonstrate that both single GDF-15 results and changes in GDF-15 concentrations over time are prognostically
While most previous studies on this topic used 10% increments, using 5% increments allows for greater flexibility in choosing a predominant subtype when tumors have 2 patterns of relatively similar percentages; it also avoids the need to use 10% for small amounts of components that potentially may be prognostically
important, such as micropapillary or solid patterns.
Kaufmann H, Kromer E, Nosslinger T, Weltermann A, Ackermann J, Reisner R, Bernhart M, Drach J: Both chromosome 13 abnormalities by metaphase cytogenetics and deletion of 13q by interphase FISH only are prognostically
relevant in multiple myeloma.
Factors that were not prognostically
significant included location, stage and grade of primary tumor, lymph node status, lymph vascular invasion, type of primary surgery, and size of recurrence.
less favorable grade 3 tumors were present in only 19% of HT users, compared with 38% of nonusers, added Dr.
In spite of the fact that 24 of the 105 patients entered were in prognostically
poor groups, the median survival of the patients who entered the trial without symptoms from the cancer was 18.
Neural blockade should be used prognostically
