Hematological Biomarkers Predict Prognosis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an inflammation-related cancer, where non-resolving inflammation contributes to its development and progression. Peripheral inflammatory cells have been shown to be associated with the prognosis of various types of cancer. More...

HPV, p16 Offers Different Prognostic Clues in Oropharyngeal Cancer

Human papillomavirus infection (HPV infection) is an infection caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), a DNA virus from the Papillomaviridae family. About 90% of HPV infections cause no symptoms and resolve spontaneously within two years. More...

Serum Thyroglobulin Assays Compared for Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma

Measurement of serum thyroglobulin (Tg) plays a key role in the post‐thyroidectomy management of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). In this context, the performance of new‐generation thyroglobulin assay has clinical implications in the follow‐up of DTC patients. More...

Epigenetic Markers Predict Type 2 Diabetes Patients Response to Metformin

Generally, metformin is the first medication prescribed for type 2 diabetes (T2D). It works by lowering glucose production in the liver and improving the body's sensitivity to insulin so that the body uses insulin more effectively. Currently, there are no phenotypes that successfully predict glycemic response to, or tolerance of, metformin. More...

Genomic Copy Number Predicts Esophageal Cancer Years Before Transformation

Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the lining of the esophagus changes, becoming more like the lining of the small intestine rather than the esophagus. This occurs in the area where the esophagus is joined to the stomach. More...
