Spontaneous apoptosis of endometrial tissue is impaired in women with endometriosis.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate spontaneous apoptosis in single-cell suspensions of eutopic and ectopic endometrium from women with endometriosis and in eutopic endometrium from fertile controls withoutExpand

Quality of life assessment as a predictor of survival in non-small cell lung cancer
BackgroundThere are conflicting and inconsistent results in the literature on the prognostic role of quality of life (QoL) in cancer. We investigated whether QoL at admission could predict survivalExpand
