PURPOSE Identification of risk factors associated with antituberculosis drug-induced hepatotoxicity (anti-TB-DIH) is important, especially in endemic area for TB and liver disease. This study assessed the incidence and risk factors of anti-TB-DIH in upper Egyptian patients treated for active pulmonary and extra-pulmonary TB. METHODS A total of 100(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Lymph node ratio (LNR) defined as the number of lymph nodes (LNs) involved with metastases divided by number of LNs examined, has been shown to be an independent prognostic factor in breast, stomach and various other solid tumors. Its significance as a prognostic determinant in colorectal cancer (CRC) is still under investigation. This study(More)
Background: New techniques of radiation therapy are being introduced in the management of breast cancer. One of the most rapidly emerging new techniques is intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). Aim of the Study: The purpose of the study is to compare between two different techniques of radiation therapy of breast cancer for intact breasts after breast(More)

AIM Women in Saudi Arabia develop breast cancer at a young age with high prevalence of poor prognostic features. Because of such features, it is necessary to examine prognostic factors in this population. One such factor is the prognostic role of lymph node ratio (LNR). METHODS We performed retrospective analyses of patients with invasive non-metastatic(More)
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease that encompasses several distinct entities with different biological characteristics and clinical behavior. Basal subtype is considered as a prognostically unfavorable subset. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinico-pathological characteristics and outcome of basal vs. luminal A subtype, as approximated(More)
