The pathogenetic role and the clinical importance of the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (APAs) in patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) are not clear. In this study, the prevalence and clinical significance of APAs were investigated in patients with ITP. Eighty-two newly diagnosed ITP patients were prospectively studied. They were(More)
In subgroups of breast cancer, the shortest disease-free and overall survival was observed in basaloid and human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 groups. CK5/6 expression is a marker used in diagnosing breast cancers in basaloid group and is associated with a poor prognosis. Similarly, loss of tumor suppressor gene PTEN and a high expression of c-Met has(More)
The aim of this retrospective, multicenter study was to evaluate clinicopathological characteristics, prognostic factors and treatment outcomes of teenage and adult patients with high-grade osteosarcoma. A total of 240 osteosarcoma patients who were diagnosed and treated from March 1995 to September 2011 were analyzed. Median age was 20 years (range 13-74(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate the association between the molecular subtypes and patterns of relapse in breast cancer patients who had undergone curative surgery. METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 1,350 breast cancer patients with relapses after curative surgery between 1998 and 2012 from referral centers in Turkey. Patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Prior studies showed a relationship between serum albumin and the albumin to globulin ratio with different types of cancer. We aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the albumin-globulin ratio (AGR) for survival of patients with lung adenocarcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 240 lung adenocarcinoma patients.(More)
Trastuzumab is known to be effective for early and advanced stages of breast cancer but optimal duration for early-stage breast cancer (EBC) is not well known. We evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of 9- and 52-week trastuzumab therapy for EBC retrospectively. In this multicenter study, the medical records of all patients with EBC were analyzed in 8(More)
PURPOSE Increasing evidence supports an association between systemic inflammation and cancer development and progression. The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is used as a basic parameter of systemic inflammation in some tumors. The aim of this study was to examine the association between the pretreatment NLR, disease-free survival (DFS), and overall(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate prognostic factors, survival rate and the efficacy of the treatment modalities used in patients with Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT). Data of patients with ESFTs followed up at different cancer centers in Turkey between 2001 and 2010 were retrospectively analyzed. The median age of 114 patients was 26 years (range(More)
PURPOSE D-dimer, LDH and tumor markers are usually overexpressed in colorectal carcinomas (CRC). Our purpose was to assess the prognostic role of D-dimer, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), CEA, CA19-9 and CA72-4 in patients with metastatic CRC treated with XELOX chemotherapy. METHODS Thirty-eight CRC patients who had evidence of distant metastasis were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between hepatic steatosis (HS) (at the time of diagnosis) and hepatic metastasis (at the time of diagnosis and follow-up) in metastatic breast cancer (BC) patients by using computed tomography (CT). METHODS A total of 107 metastatic BC patients who had an abdominal CT were retrospectively enrolled in this study.(More)
