Heterogenität der epithelialen Ovarialkarzinome und deren klinische Bedeutung

Abstract

Epithelial ovarian cancer is one of the most lethal gynecological malignant tumors despite improvement of the treatment. Recent molecular studies show that ovarian cancer is a heterogeneous disease which is reflected by different histologic types. These subtypes differ from their origin, pathogenesis and molecular alterations and can be divided in two major groups. The type I cancer (low grade) evolves from precursor lesions in a step-wise process. In contrast, the type II cancer (high grade) grows rapidly without any identifiable precursors. Among all subtypes is heterogeneity in the biological behavior which has implications in patient prognosis and treatment especially for individualized therapies in the future.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
