BACKGROUND The International Prognostic Index (IPI), initially designed for aggressive lymphomas, is also used in follicular lymphoma (FL) and other indolent lymphomas. Two new prognostic indexes have recently been proposed for FL [the Italian Lymphoma Intergroup (ILI) Index and the Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI)]. PATIENTS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Screening for colorectal cancer with sigmoidoscopy benefits from the fact that distal findings predict the risk of advanced proximal neoplasms (APNs). This study was aimed at comparing the existing strategies of postsigmoidoscopy referral to colonoscopy in terms of accuracy and resources needed. METHODS Asymptomatic individuals aged 50-69 years(More)
Thyroid cancer (TC) is the most common type of endocrine malignancy and accounts for nearly 3% of all malignancies. The incidence of TC in Spain was 5/100,000 in women and 1.9/100,000 in men in 2013. The diagnosis of TC usually follows the identification of a thyroid nodule on physical examination or as an incidental finding on diagnostic imaging performed(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel disease is a premalignant condition for developing colorectal cancer. Since a correlation has been suggested between telomere length, chromosomal instability and neoplastic transformation in this setting, we sought to investigate whether telomerase expression in colorectal mucosa may constitute a biomarker for malignant(More)
BACKGROUND Common low-penetrance genetic variants have been consistently associated with colorectal cancer risk. AIM To determine if these genetic variants are associated also with adenoma susceptibility and may improve selection of patients with increased risk for advanced adenomas and/or multiplicity (≥ 3 adenomas). METHODS We selected 1,326 patients(More)
