    ..The location of TILs' hot spots and their distance to the tumor front did not correlate with patient survival. Peritumoral TILs and the composition of the stroma predict OS and PFS in PDAC. ..
  2. Schoenberg M, Hao J, Bucher J, Miksch R, Anger H, Mayer B, et al. Perivascular Tumor-Infiltrating Leukocyte Scoring for Prognosis of Resected Hepatocellular Carcinoma Patients. Cancers (Basel). 2018;10: pubmed publisher
    ..Our novel perivascular infiltration scoring (PVIS) can independently predict both DFS and OS in resected HCC patients. ..

    ..Patients undergoing additive CRT have a rather good OS and PFS compared to historical control patient groups. ..

    ..Moreover, abdominal symptoms, i.e. pain, obstipation and dysphagia may occur due to mechanical displacement. Therefore, surgical exploration with complete oncological resection is the therapy of choice if malignity cannot be ruled out. ..
  5. D Haese J, Werner J. [Resectability of pancreatic cancer: New criteria]. Radiologe. 2016;56:318-24 pubmed publisher
    ..Pancreatic resections can nowadays be more radically performed due to advances in surgical techniques. This has led to a change in the criteria for resectability, especially concerning venous tumor infiltration. ..

    ..As such, recycling drugs could present an intriguing and fast-track method with new therapeutic paradigms in anti-cancer and anti-CSC treatments. Here, we aim to summarize important aspects and novel findings of this emerging field. ..

    ..Thus, concerns of patients awaiting LDKT regarding the ideal time of surgery can be allayed, and surgery may be scheduled independently of the lunar phases. ..
