The lymph node ratio as an independent prognostic factor for node-positive triple-negative breast cancer. Abstract 4166Background:. A high result can be interpreted as indicating the accuracy of such a statistic. Experimental Design: Histopathologic specimens in 188 of 302 patients were analyzed for Ki-67, p16, maspin, Bcl-2, Her2/neu, and p53. Therefore, we conducted this retrospective, dual-institutional study in order to shed some more light on these issues. Only N0 versus N1–3 classification was significant. We conducted a retrospective analysis to examine the clinical characteristics and prognostic factors in HIV-negative and HIV-positive patients with PCNSL and to assess the effect of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) therapy on the outcome of HIV-positive patients. Yukinori Okada, had the original idea and collected and analyzed the data. Prognostic factors specific to each entity have not been adequately explored. ... Clearly, this is a prognostic as well as predictive indicator. Our retrospective analysis addressed prognostic factors for short- and long-term outcomes of patients (pts) with TNBC pts treated in routine clinical practice. Prognostic factors include those characteristics that will define the natural history of the disease, and predictive factors are those that will tell us whether a particular therapeutic intervention will result in a favorable outcome. Overall survival was 38.4% and it was significantly higher in the patients with negative margins and nodes. Among the patients in the 2+ range for HER2, 65.2% (15/23) were positive for HER2 expression as examined by the fluores- The prognostic significance of positive peritoneal cytology in patients with early-stage endometrial cancer (Stage 1 or 2) is controversial and perhaps depends on the presence of other factors. 1999 Aug 11. Dutch Guillain-Barré Study Group. BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate prognostic factors of local and distant recurrence in patients diagnosed with T1a and T1b, lymph node‐negative breast carcinoma (BC) with emphasis on human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status. They are also more likely to come back after treatment. Forty-one HIV-positive patients and 45 HIV-negative patients were identified. In other subtypes, positive LN status was an independent negative prognostic factor. node-negative patients, and (2) those for which the risks and costs of adjuvant therapy outweigh the expected benefit.3 In this context, prognostic factors should be distinguished from predictive factors. Abstract. Positive inguinal nodes and positive margins were identified as prognostic factors either for overall survival and disease specific survival; tumor size greater than 4 cm was identified as prognostic factors for overall survival. This study aims to reveal the prognostic value of NLN count in breast cancer. Author contributions. No prognostic differences between the patients with N1, N2 or N3 disease subtypes (p=0.78) were detected. None of the shape, margin or orientation characteristics was associated with the prognostic factors.
