A combined modality approach to treating rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) has markedly improved survival. We present two cases of cervical RMS. One of them had a very aggressive clinical course. CASE Two(More)

Multiple agent chemotherapy in high-risk metastatic gestational trophoblastic tumor patients is a problem for any medical team. In this study, EMA-EP chemotherapy (etoposide, methotrexate, actinomycin, and cisplatinum) was evaluated as firstline chemotherapy to manage high-risk GTT metastatic patients. Seventeen high-risk metastatic patients, including 14(More)

BACKGROUND For analyzing a repeated ordinal response, it is common to use a multivariate cumulative logit model. This model may fit poorly, especially when a nonsymmetric response is available. In these cases, alternative strategies should be utilized. METHODS In this paper, we present a family of power transformations for the cumulative probabilities to(More)
