descriptors of the new 8th edition with pictorial illustrations and main concern on imaging staging
In the ED group, the Child-Pugh score was worse, and the TNM
stage, BCLC stage, and JIS score were higher as compared to the non-ED group.
editor Men Socheata said the reporters had not committed the alleged offence.
The aim of the present study was to re-stage patients who underwent resection with the diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) according to the 7th TNM
staging system and to determine the effect of the new system on survival.
 investigated the correlation between CEA levels and TNM
staging in 474 patients with colorectal cancer.
staging is the most important parameter in determining the treatment modality in prostate cancer (22).
Begg's rank correlation test and Egger's linear regression revealed no publication bias (Begg's test: OS, P = 0.152; DFS/RFS, P = 0806; TNM
stage, P = 0711; lymph node metastasis, P = 0536; lymphatic invasion, P = 1000; tumor site, P = 1000; tumor size, P = 1000; gender, P = 0060, histological grade, P = 0707; depth of invasion, P = 0707; and distant metastasis, P = 1000) (Supplementary File 1).
In this study, we examined the association between the levels of S100A4 protein expression in the CRC tissue with the TNM
From these, TNM
and UICC were automatically derived.
The clinical stage was assigned on the basis of the 8th Edition of the TNM
Classification for Lung Cancer .
However, the prognosis of patients with gastric cancer within the same TNM
stage is usually different after receiving similar treatment .
The patients were evaluated by several prognostic classification systems of thyroid cancer, including European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC); age, grade, extent, size (AGES); age, metastases, extent, size (AMES); the metastases, age, completeness of resection, invasion, size (MACIS); and tumor, lymph node, metastasis (TNM
) stage (the 7th edition) as previously described [18, 19].
