Study of p53 gene over expression as a prognostic marker in squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity
The present study entitled ”Study of p53 gene expression as a prognostic marker in squamous cell carcinoma of oral cavity” was conducted in the department of pathology SRMSIMS Bareilly, 66 casesExpand
Cluster analysis of medical text documents by using semi-clustering approach based on graph representation
This paper proposes semiclustering method, by considering graph representation, where documents are represented by vertices and edge weights are calculated according to their mutual similarity, which helps in reducing number of labels in label selection. Expand
Contribution of Other Parameters to Malignancy Risk Index for Differentiation of Benign or Malignity in Adnexal Masses

The epidemiology of lung cancer.
In the US, the recent legalization of marijuana for recreational use in many states and the rapid growth of commercially available electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) present challenges to public health for which little short term and no long term safety data is available. Expand
Hormone Receptor‐Positive Breast Cancer Has a Worse Prognosis in Male Than in Female Patients
Patients with MBC have worse survival than patients with FBC, especially for early‐stage HR+ breast cancers, and more studies are needed to optimize treatment for MBC. Expand
Patients with Non-invasive Follicular Thyroid Neoplasm with Papillary-Like Nuclear Features are Unlikely to have Malignant Preoperative Cytology
Patients with a final diagnosis of NIFTP are less likely to have preoperative FNA diagnosis of malignancy than those with final pathology of classical or other variants of PTC. Expand
miR-486-3p, miR-139-5p, and miR-21 as Biomarkers for the Detection of Oral Tongue Squamous Cell Carcinoma
The feasibility of using microRNA biomarkers (miR-486-3p, miR-139-5p, andMiR-21) for the detection of TSCC was confirmed and the utility of the archived clinical specimens for micro RNA biomarker discovery was demonstrated. Expand
Prospective Randomized Study between Intravesical BCG and Mitomycin-C for Non-Muscle-Invasive Urothelial Carcinoma of Urinary-Bladder Post TURBT
In the prevention of recurrences, intravesical Mitomycin C and BCG therapies have comparable efficacies at the end of 6 months and a further follow up period is required to see and compare the long term results. Expand
Tumor-Dependent and -Independent Serum/Plasma Biomarkers for Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer
The existence of tumor-independent biomarkers indicates that the “lung cancer soil” is planted beyond the lung, and these biomarkers can be proteins/peptides, DNA, RNA, glycans, lipids, metabolites, or any combinations of them. Expand
LungCancerin Patients withHuman Immunodeficiency VirusInfection Compared withHistoricControlSubjects
This retrospective case-control study was undertaken to determine if there were differences in age, sex, and stage distribution and in survival between H1V-positive and HIV-indeterminate lung cancer patients. Expand
