The plasma exchange using Carcino embryonic Antigen (CEA) value as an index was performed for 3 colonic cancer patients with liver metastasis. A remarkable regression of hepatomegaly in two cases with rectal cancer was obtained and a significant decrease of CEA was observed in all patients.

TITLE: [Radical operation for rectal cancer to preserve anorectal, urinary and sexual function]
PUBDATE: 19840501
Recently, preservation of physiological functions have become to be considered in the operative treatment for rectal cancer. Dysfunction caused following radical operation for rectal cancer is divided into two parts as follows, (1) disturbance or loss of anorectal function due to sacrifice of the anus in abdomino-perineal resection and decrease function as fecal reservoir following anal sphincter preserving resection of the rectum. (2) anorectal, urinary and sexual dysfunction following surgical injury to the autonomic nerves by pelvic lymph nodes dissection. Our conceptions of the indication for sphincter preserving operation and for wide dissection of pelvic lymph nodes which cause severe dysfunction of urinary and sexual functions postoperatively were discussed.

The radiograms of the skeleton of 41 patients with advanced breast cancer treated with bilateral ovariectomy were reviewed. The modifications in the secondary localizations and/or their appearance after castration were compared with the findings of the clinical examination. Appearance and progression of osteolytic lesions, corresponded to a clinical progression of the disease. Osteoblastic evolution of osteolytic lesions and the appearance of osteoblastic lesions in bones undamaged before ovariectomy were signs of a favorable response to therapy.

PUBDATE: 19840501
We studied 89 cases of thyroid cancer registered at the Nagasaki Tumor Registry during the period from 1973--1977. The incidence of thyroid cancer tended to be higher in persons exposed to the atomic bomb, especially women, than in the nonexposed population. Compared with nonexposed individuals, the relative risk for thyroid cancer was increased in distally as well as proximally exposed persons, but not in early entrants to the bombed city. In 83 histologically examined patients, papillary carcinomas were highly predominant, they were more prevalent in the exposed than in the nonexposed population.

PUBDATE: 19840201
The relationship between histologic staging of cervical adenocarcinoma and pelvic lymph node metastasis was analyzed in 138 patients who had undergone hysterectomy. In AIS, the cervical glands were replaced by cancer. When glandular or solid cancer budding into the stroma was identified in AIS, it was designated Stage Ia adenocarcinoma. Pelvic lymph node metastases were found in cases with Stage Ib-III adenocarcinoma, but not in Stage Ia adenocarcinoma. This suggests that Stage Ia adenocarcinoma might be treated the same as AIS.

PUBDATE: 19851001
Twelve women with previously irradiated advanced pelvic cancer were treated with doxorubicin and cisplatin to determine a maximum tolerable dose. Response was not an objective of this phase I study, but one partial response was seen in four cases of cervix cancer with measurable lesions. Hematologic toxicity was frequent and severe at the starting doses (doxorubicin 30 mg/M2 and cisplatin 100 mg/M2 every 3 weeks), but was acceptable when cisplatin was used at 75 mg/M2. Further evaluation of this combination in squamous carcinoma of the cervix is not recommended.

TITLE: Breast carcinoma: pattern of metastasis at autopsy.
PUBDATE: 19830701
Breast cancer is known to metastasize to all organs of the human body, and its manifestations are protean. It is almost impossible to predict which organ system will be invaded. Since 1950, there are seven autopsy series of patients with breast carcinoma published in the English literature. All data came from American hospitals (total of 2,147 patients), and each report studied more than 100 patients with breast cancer. The reported incidence of involvement of different organ sites are presented in Table I. Although the data came from different institutions and spanned over 35 years (1943-1977), the findings regarding metastatic involvement of specific organs are fairly similar.

A 71-year-old man was admitted with the complaint of painless tumor in the right inguinal region, one month after right hemicolectomy for cecal cancer. The tumor seemed to exist in the right spermatic cord, so right radical orchiectomy was done. A tumor was found in the right spermatic cord, but the right spermatic duct, right epididymis and right testicle were intact. Histopathological examination of the tumor revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma from the cecal cancer. Twenty cases of metastatic tumors of the spermatic cord from the gastrointestinal cancers have been reported in Japan including this case.

TITLE: Thresholds for carcinogenesis and their significance to medical practice.
PUBDATE: 19830201
The Delaney Amendment covering the addition of carcinogens to foods, the Toxic Substances Control Act governing the release of carcinogens into water, and other regulations are based on a "no-threshold" concept. That is, they assume that any level above zero will induce cancer in an exposed population. The threshold concept holds that zero risk occurs at or below some finite exposure which is greater than zero. This paper shows that thresholds for carcinogenesis are in accord with common medical experience, and discusses the medical implications of thresholds.

This article reviews the experience of The Princess Margaret Hospital in the management of squamous cell carcinoma of the soft palate and uvula. Between 1970 and 1979, 70 patients with this diagnosis received primary radiation therapy. The overall five year survival is 43%. The primary tumor was controlled in 80% by radiation. Advanced local (T3) and nodal (N2/3) disease proved difficult to control with radiation alone. The development of second malignancies in patients cured of their primary cancer remains a distressing problem.

The form and stage of malignant disease, the condition of the patient, the attitude of the owner and that of the veterinarian, the availability and risks of tumour therapy and the organization of veterinary health care are briefly discussed. Increase co-operation, national and international, by various disciplines of veterinary science, is essential in improving the treatment of cancer in small animals.

PUBDATE: 19820801
An epidemiologic investigation of a 1964 cohort of 478 photographic processors in nine Eastman Kodak Color Print and Processing (CP&P) laboratories in the continental United States was undertaken. Analysis of pre-1965 environmental data indicated that chemical exposures were within the standards applicable at the time. The results showed no significant excess mortality, sickness-absence or cancer incidence. The processing cohort's mortality experience after 16 years of follow-up compared favorably with that of two industrial control populations. The present study represents (to our knowledge) the first published occupational epidemiology investigation that specifically examines the health of workers engaged in large-scale commercial photofinishing operations.

We have performed fine needle aspiration biopsy of 21 solid intraocular tumors as a diagnostic technique prior to treatment of these tumors. Indications for biopsy included major diagnostic uncertainty, suspected cancer metastasis to the choroid without other evidence of systemic malignancy, and patient insistence on biopsy confirmation of the diagnosis prior to treatment. This paper presents the instrumentation and techniques that we have used in our intraocular fine needle aspiration biopsies and reviews the complications of biopsy that we have encountered.

PUBDATE: 19830601
An analysis of commonly used nutritional parameters was made for 277 pediatric cancer patients. It is apparent that standard nutritional assessment parameters in the pediatric cancer patient may be difficult to interpret because of the disease state as well as of the treatment. On the basis of the findings of this study, dietary histories to determine caloric and protein adequacy and a measurement of weight/height percent may, in fact, be the most reliable indicators of nutritional status.
