Breast Cancer Receptor Profiles in Jamaica: A 6-year Analysis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.067
Synopsis: 
This is the first report of the UWI breast cancer IHC receptor database in which we present the results of tests performed during the 6-year period following its establishment in 2002, and investigate for associations between receptor profile and patient age, tumour grade and stage.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the breast cancer IHC receptor status for tests performed at the UWI from January 2002 to December 2007, and to investigate for an association between receptor profile and patient age, tumour grade and stage.

Methods: The UWI breast cancer IHC receptor database was examined to determine receptor profile, patient age, tumour histology, grade, size and lymph node status.

The Prevalence and Significance of Oestrogen Receptor (ER) Positivity in Breast Cancer at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.121
Pages: 
795–801
Synopsis: 
Oestrogen receptor (ER) status was positive in 125 (63%) and negative in 74 (37%) patients diagnosed with breast cancer. By comparing the cohorts of ER negative to ER positive patients, one can accurately identify which clinical variables bear clinical significance in this population and are affected by ER status, as well as impact patient outcome.

ABSTRACT

 Objective:  To identify the prevalence of oestrogen receptor (ER) positivity, and determine the relationship of ER status with patient and tumour characteristics, in patients with breast cancer.

Role of Routine Chest Radiographs in the Evaluation of Patients with Stable Blunt Chest Trauma – A Prospective Analysis

Issue: 
Pages: 
64–72
Synopsis: 
The study sought to assess the test performance characteristics of clinical judgement in the evaluation of stable blunt chest trauma patients compared with chest radiography in the determination of significant intra-thoracic injury. The study revealed that physicians in the local emergency department may be over-utilizing chest radiographs for patients who had stable blunt chest trauma.


ABSTRACT

Objective: The study sought to assess the test performance characteristics of clinical judgement in the evaluation of stable blunt chest trauma patients compared with chest radiography (CXR) in the determination of significant intra-thoracic injury.
