TITLE: Oesophageal cancer in France and Switzerland: recent time trends.
PUBDATE: 19920401
This paper reports the incidence of oesophageal carcinoma in five cancer registries from France and in a further two from the francophone regions of Switzerland. The cancers are segregated into the two main histological types (squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma). In Belgium the proportion of adenocarcinomas is much higher than in any of the French registries. A study of time trends shows no clear trend in overall incidence of oesophageal cancer. There is a trend towards an increasing proportion of adenocarcinomas with time, that is most apparent in Doubs, Dijon and Vaud registries.

PUBDATE: 19910801
Surgery is still considered the best approach in gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to identify the most important factors involved in the determination of long-term survival. Total and subtotal gastrectomy were analysed. Long-term survival in these patients was strictly correlated with the stage of disease and the infiltration of resection margins. Early diagnosis is confirmed to be the most important factor in the long-term survival of these patients.

PUBDATE: 19900201
Two male patients who underwent curative surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy (with further chemotherapy in one) for testicular cancer developed adenocarcinoma of the stomach 5 and 19 years after treatment. The stomach is included in the field of radiotherapy used to treat the para-aortic lymph nodes and this may lead to dysplastic changes in the stomach mucosa which can lead to frank malignancy. Early endoscopy should be offered to patients with dyspeptic symptoms after adjuvant radiotherapy for testicular cancer.

PUBDATE: 19900901
We studied the fine features of stromal elements in 33 cases of human lung carcinoma by electron microscopy. Cancer cells showed the damages to the basement membrane and matrix. On the other hand, stromal elements showed changes responding to the invasion of cancer cells. Lymphocytes and macrophages showed the activity of killing cancer cells. Most cell directly contacts the myofibroblast and fibroblast. Matured myofibroblast, early myofibroblast, active fibroblast and resting fibroblast were present near the nest of carcinoma. We discussed the roles and significance of stromal reactions.

PUBDATE: 19930401
Consumption of moist snuff and other smokeless tobacco products in the United States almost tripled from 1972 through 1991 (1). Long-term use of smokeless tobacco is associated with nicotine addiction and increased risk of oral cancer (2)--the incidence of which could increase if young persons who currently use smokeless tobacco continue to use these products frequently (1). To monitor trends in the prevalence of use of smokeless tobacco products, CDC's 1991 National Health Interview Survey-Health Promotion and Disease Prevention supplement (NHIS-HPDP) collected information on snuff and chewing tobacco use and smoking from a representative sample of the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged > or = 18 years. This report summarizes findings from this survey.

TITLE: Treatment of thyroid cancer.
PUBDATE: 19940801
The management of differentiated thyroid cancer remains controversial. A consecutive series of 234 thyroidectomies done by one surgeon in various Nairobi Hospitals from July 1990 to June 1993 were studied. 18 patients were operated on for thyroid cancer. The procedures ranged from lobectomy to total thyroidectomy. Young adults from 20-40 years of age were mainly affected, with a male/female sex ratio of 8:1. The immediate and subsequent morbidity of the operation of total thyroidectomy, in our opinion, overweighs its advantages of improved disease control. This is particularly so when low socio-economic standards lead to lack of compliance with replacement therapy.

PUBDATE: 19941101
Angiosarcoma is a rare and highly malignant neoplasm. Cutaneous angiosarcoma not associated with postmastectomy lymphedema is rare. There are only eight reported cases of development of cutaneous angiosarcoma in a lymphedematous extremity in a patient with preexisting malignancy other than breast cancer. This is the first reported case of development of cutaneous angiosarcoma in a lymphedematous extremity in a Hodgkin's disease survivor. A review of cutaneous angiosarcoma associated with lymphedema and a discussion of the pathogenesis of angiosarcoma are included.

PUBDATE: 19910901
Murine monoclonal antibodies to human small cell lung cancer (SCLC) have been developed and partially characterized. Primary hybridoma clones were screened in the indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) on alive H417 cells. Then five clones (IgG1, IgG2a, IgG3 and IgM) non-reactive with normal human bone marrow cells and positively reactive with SCLC tumors were selected. The H417.3 antibody is directed against 47-50kD surface antigens of H417 cells. The antibodies are supposed to be applied for the immunodetection of SCLC metastases to bone marrow and immunotoxin preparations.

TITLE: Stem cell regulation, tissue ontogeny, and oncogenic events.
PUBDATE: 19920601
The number of necessary oncogenic events is a function of tissue ontogeny. A minimum of two events appears to suffice for certain embryonal tumors, leukemias, and lymphomas for which the target tissues normally show stem cell proliferation. Other tumors, including those featured in the Li-Fraumeni syndrome, arise in target tissues whose stem cells are conditionally stimulated to proliferate, as in response to hormones, and involve more events. The most complex cancers include most carcinomas, which arise in renewal tissues whose stem cells do not normally proliferate. The number of necessary oncogenic events appears to increase with the number of controls on proliferation.

TITLE: Cytokines in implantation.
PUBDATE: 19950701
The process of implantation in the human involves 'invasion' of the maternal endometrium by the trophoblast surrounding the developing blastocyst, in response to which there is a cellular reaction in the endometrium. The overall situation has some features analogous to invasion by a tumour and some which are more characteristic of an inflammatory response. In addition, and also in common with cancer and inflammation, there is a release of biologically active molecules, including cytokines, at and around the implantation site. It is believed that these cytokines may play an important role in the successful establishment of the pregnancy; the evidence for this belief is examined in this review.

PUBDATE: 19960301
A rare case of bladder cancer producing granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is reported. A 63-year-old man with a progressive, grade 3 transitional cell bladder carcinoma, showed marked leukocytosis (maximum 181,800/mm3) and an elevated serum G-CSF to 131.7 pg/mL. After radical cystectomy and neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the tumor recurred locally. Immunohistochemical examination with monoclonal antibody specific for G-CSF revealed positive staining in the local recurrent tumor. To our knowledge, there have been only seven cases reported of bladder cancer producing G-CSF.

PUBDATE: 19961001
During the past 12 years, among 1478 operations for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), 102 (6.9%) bronchosplastic resections were performed. There were 74 lobectomies, 19 bilobectomies, and 9 pneumonectomies done by means of 72 sleeve-, 28 wedge resections, and 2 resections of the tracheal bifurcation. Atelectasis was observed in 6%, whereas anastomotic dehiscence occurred in 4%. Local complete resection was achieved in 81%. The 30-day mortality amounted to 4%. Our results demonstrate that bronchoplastic procedures represent a safe therapeutic option in the operative treatment of central NSCLC.

PUBDATE: 19910801
Meticulous correlation of mammographic and pathologic findings is essential to improve detection and understanding of the many processes that affect the breast. A review of recent radiologic papers dealing with several breast cancer variants as well as two benign lesions, the radial scar and the breast hamartoma, is presented. Important papers from the pathologic, oncologic, and radiologic literature are reviewed. These papers described the evolving concepts of proliferative breast disease as risk markers, as well as insights into prognostic differences among the histologic subtypes of ductal carcinoma in situ.

TITLE: AgNOR counts have no prognostic value in breast cancer.
PUBDATE: 19930201
The prognostic significance of silver-stained nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs) was retrospectively studied among 230 patients with operable invasive breast cancer from a defined urban population. The number of AgNORs was evaluated from routinely processed paraffin sections by light microscopy at a total magnification of x630. The number of AgNORs had no predictive value on the 8-year survival rate corrected for intercurrent deaths (P = 0.2). A high number of AgNORs (> 2.7, the median value) was not related to any other prognostic variable studied except a low S-phase fraction measured by flow cytometry. AgNOR counting does not appear to be a useful prognostic variable in breast cancer.

PUBDATE: 19930501
Clear cell ovarian carcinoma accounts for 4.5% of all cases of ovarian cancer at this center; 43% of patients presented with stage I disease. Stage for stage patients with advanced disease (II-IV) did no worse than other subtypes of epithelial tumors but patients with stage I disease did significantly worse at both 5 (P < 0.05) and 10 years (P < 0.02). Young age (< 60 years), advanced stage, and the presence of vascular invasion are independently poor prognostic factors, while the presence of a predominantly (> 75%) papillary or tubulocystic morphological pattern independently predicts a better prognosis.
