OBJECTIVE To determine impact of age and other prognostic factors on the survival of ovarian immature teratoma (IT) patients. METHODS Data obtained from the SEER database between 1973 and 2012. Kaplan-Meier methods and multivariate Cox regression models were used for statistical analyses. RESULTS Of 1307 patients (median: 24years; range: 0-93), 78%, 5%,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the hospital and patient factors associated with robotic surgery for endometrial cancer in the United States. METHODS Data was obtained from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from the year 2010. Chi-squared and multivariate analyses were used for statistical analysis. RESULTS Of the 6560 endometrial cancer patients who underwent(More)
Chan. Racial disparities in presentation and survival of ovarian yolk sac cancer patients: a study of 423 women. Am J Obstet Gynecol 2016. TO THE EDITORS: Ovarian germ cell cancers comprise 3-5% of all ovarian malignancies. Patients with yolk sac tumors have a worse prognosis compared to those with dysgerminomas or immature teratomas. Due to the rarity of(More)
Acidosis causes millions of deaths each year and strategies for normalizing the blood pH in acidosis patients are greatly needed. The lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) pathway has great potential for treating acidosis due to its ability to convert protons and pyruvate into lactate and thereby raise blood pH, but has been challenging to develop into a therapy(More)
The immune system is traditionally considered from the perspective of defending against bacterial or viral infections. However, foreign materials like implants can also illicit immune responses. These immune responses are mediated by a large number of molecular signals, including cytokines, antibodies and reactive radical species, and cell types, including(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the complications and charges of robotic vs. laparoscopic vs. open surgeries in morbidly obese patients treated for endometrial cancer. METHODS Data were obtained from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2011. Chi-squared, Wilcoxon rank sum two-sample tests, and multivariate analyses were used for statistical analyses. RESULTS Of(More)
The low detection sensitivity of enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) is a central problem in science and limits progress in multiple areas of biology and medicine. In this report we demonstrate that the hydrocyanines, a family of fluorescent reactive oxygen species (ROS) probes, can act as turn on fluorescent horseradish peroxidase (HRP) probes and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the factors associated with inpatient palliative care (PC) use in patients with metastatic gynecologic cancer. METHODS Data were obtained from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) for patients with metastatic cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancers. Chi-square and multivariate models were used for statistical analyses. RESULTS Of(More)
