Mean expression was only 2.3 percent for the whole population. One wonders of the biologic relevance and utility of a tissue marker that’s not found in 98 percent of the cells in confirmed tumor. Cancer 107: 37-45, 2006 – UroToday.. A tissue marker of poor prognosis in obvious cell renal cell carcinoma The search for molecular markers that further advance our understanding of the biology of renal cell carcinoma and help out with evaluating the diagnosis and prognosis of patients remains the subject of intense investigation. These kinds of studies have been greatly advanced by the emergence of gene tissue and array microarray technologies. Here, Parker and colleagues out of the Mayo Clinic report on the utility of survivin expression as a marker of prognosis in apparent cell RCC.Why, Wachter asks, do we do nothing similar in health care? In a moving passage, Wachter speaks with a renowned surgeon who once spent his evenings before surgery reading his notes on the next day’s patients. No longer. His notes have been rendered homogeneous by the tyranny of clicks and auto-populated fields uselessly. I can’t even picture their faces. The blanks on our screens can be filled with terms, but the procedure of understanding cannot be auto-populated. Perhaps life without the EHR will soon be unimaginable. However the technology shall support and improve health care only when it evolves in ways that help, than hinder rather, us in synthesizing, analyzing, thinking critically, and telling the whole stories of our sufferers.
