Identification of biomarkers used for the prognostic evaluation of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients is important. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential prognostic value of XRCC1, ERCC1, ERCC2, and TP53 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in completely resected NSCLC patients. In total, 130 patients, surgically treated for NSCLC(More)
BACKGROUND A high-risk group of patients with stage II colon cancer has been identified by the results of studies in Western populations. The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic factors of adjuvant chemotherapy in Turkish patients with stage II colon cancer.

FDG PET/CT as a molecular imaging modality detected spinal cord metastases in a patient with medulloblastoma. Increased FDG uptake was reported as negatively correlated with survival in medulloblastoma in the literature. Although, spinal cord metastases associated with medulloblastoma detected with FDG-PET/CT imaging is a rare condition. To the best of our(More)
PURPOSE Metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is a lethal disease and fluorouracil-leucovorin-irinotecan (FOLFIRI) plus bevacizumab (bev) is a standard approach. Hence, there is a strong need for identifying new prognostic factors to show the efficacy of FOLFIRI-bev. METHODS This is a retrospective study including patients (n = 90) with mCRC from two(More)
