DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.560
Synopsis: 
The optimized emergency care pathway, beginning with pre-admission procedures, can significantly shorten the first medical contact to balloon (FMC2B) and door-to-balloon (D2B) time, and will improve the short- and long-term prognosis for STEMI patients.

The Role of FLT3-ITD and CEBPA Mutations on the Prognosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in Turkish patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.446
Synopsis: 
In this article, we evaluated the prognostic value of FLT3-ITD and CEBPA mutations in ALL. We did not detect any relationship between FLT3-ITD and CEBPA mutations as prognostic factors. However, FLT3-ITD mutation may affect the response to chemotherapy.

The Prognostic Importance of Immunohistochemical Biomarkers in Diffuse, Large B-cell Lymphoma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.550
Synopsis: 
Diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL) patients were subclassified by immunohistochemical method to evaluate the effects of subgroups on prognosis. The lymph node biopsy specimens of 40 patients with DLBCL were stained with monoclonal antibody immunostains of CD10, Bcl-6, and MUM1. Finally, MUM1 was found negatively correlated with overall survival (OS) and event-free survival (EFS).

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Molecular methods have practical difficulties in identifying subgroups of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in routine clinical practice. The goal of this study was to subclassify DLBCL patients into subgroups by immunohistochemical method and to evaluate the effects of subgroups on prognosis.

Clinicopathological Characteristics and Treatment Outcomes of Pulmonary Carcinosarcoma in Eight Patients

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.042
Pages: 
533-7
Synopsis: 
The present study included eight cases with pulmonary carcinosarcoma. Pathological diagnosis of PC was made by surgical resection in all patients. Operations were lobectomy (n = 6), bilobectomy inferior (n = 1) and pneumonectomy (n = 1). The median survival time was 21.5 months (range: 1-75 months).

ABSTRACT

Background: Pulmonary carcinosarcoma (PC) is a rare malignant tumour of the lung. Due to its rarity, few studies have been reported and its clinicopathological characteristics and treatment outcomes remain unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate clinical, radiological and pathological findings and treatment outcomes of patients with PC.

Synopsis: 
This study demonstrated that high red blood cell distribution width in postoperative percutaneous coronary interventional was an independent predictor factor influencing the mortality.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of red blood cell distribution width (RDW) on the long-term prognosis of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS).

DOI: 
10.7727/WIMJ.2016.183
Synopsis: 
The present study included eight cases with PC. Pathological diagnosis of PC was made by surgical resection in all patients. Operations were lobectomy (n=6), bilobectomy inferior (n=1), and pneumonectomy (n=1). The median survival time was 21.5 months (range: 1-75 months).

ABSTRACT

Background and Aims: Pleomorphic carcinoma is a rare tumor of the lung. The aim of the present study was to evaluate clinicopathological characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients with pleomorphic pulmonary carcinoma.

Methods: The records of pathology department from January 2005 to December 2013 were evaluated. Twenty cases of pleomorphic pulmonary carcinoma were identified and studied.

The Role of FLT3-ITD and CEBPA Mutations on Prognosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in Turkish patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.446

ABSTRACT

 

Introduction: Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy in childhood. Although some prognostic factors have been defined to date, estimation of prognosis is currently not perfect. Previous studies have shown an association of FLT3 with poor prognosis and CEBPA mutation with the development of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Here we aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of FLT3-ITD and CEBPA mutations in ALL.

Study on the Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Factors of Extranodal NK/T Cell Lymphoma, Nasal Type

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.052
Synopsis: 
We conducted a retrospective analysis of the clinicopathological records of 18 extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma cases treated in Union Hospital of Fujian Medical University from May 2007 to May 2012, with follow-up of patients and univariate and multivariate analysis of the clinicopathological parameters, treatment and two-year survival rate. ENKCL lesions developed rapidly with poor prognosis. Though today we promote the comprehensive treatment of ENKCL, chemotherapy is still of great importance. Individualized treatment needs to be further studied and prognostic indicators of greater clinicopathological significance for ENKCL are worthy of further exploration.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The study is to analyze the clinicopathological features of extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKCL) and its treatment and efficacy, to provide a scientific basis for individualized treatment.
