Lymphadenectomy for isolated lymph node metastasis from extremity soft-tissue sarcomas

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18306370 Full free edition: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cncr.23363 BACKGROUND: Previous studies have suggested that the prognosis in patients with extremity soft-tissue sarcomas (ESTS) with isolated lymph node (LN) metastases (stage IV) is comparable to that of patients with high-risk ESTS without metastases (stage III). This study was performed to determine the outcomes of patients who underwent aggressive therapy,…

What’s this?

A cancer diagnosis (as I am sure with any “life threatening” diagnosis) is not kind to the mind in any way. Panic is the first feeling I had accompanied by a quiet calm illness which raced over my body and soul. Betrayal and fear of the unknown. Like a sniper, she lay there quietly in…

The differences in recurrence and survival of extremity liposarcoma subtypes

Based on the below citation: https://oncologypro.esmo.org/Meeting-Resources/ESMO-2017-Congress/The-differences-in-recurrence-and-survival-of-extremity-liposarcoma-subtypes   Background Liposarcomas (LPS) are most frequently located in the extremity and recur often, locally as well as on distant sites. There are currently no studies comparing the differences between the different LPS subtypes specifically on this primary site. The aim of this study is to map the differences…

How Liposarcoma Metabolise

Before I myself try to understand this I think it is best that I point out at this point that I have little or no faith in Conventional treatments as they stand.  After the small amount of research I have done so far it shows to me that Chemo and Radiation seems to prove less…

Samadhi

Samadhi cannot be conveyed to the level of mind. It is more an inner journey – discovering your true nature by inner reflection. Maya – the illusion of the self (we have forgotten our true selves) As we move through our daily lives we have stopped remembering or honouring the soul. We have limited ourselves…

Lipid Metabolism in Liposarcoma: A Novel Target for Therapeutic Intervention

Posted on: May 1, 2010 Nancy B. Kuemmerle, PhD,  Saban Research Institute, Dartmouth Medical School Recipient of the: $25,000 Richard and Kathy Lobo Research Award There is no effective medical therapy for patients with liposarcoma. We find that liposarcomas are dependent upon a constant supply of fatty acids to fuel their growth. Tumors may potentially acquire these…
