PUBDATE: 19970301
Bone is one of the three most common sites of tumor metastasis. Bone metastasis is a catastrophic complication of cancer, since it is not only associated with intractable pain, but also with other morbidity such as hypercalcemia which usually hastens an uncomfortable death. Despite the importance of bone metastasis/hypercalcemia, until recently clinicians have used specific therapies only for the treatment of hypercalcemia but not for bone metastasis. During this presentation, I will review our current understanding of some of the steps involved in the pathophysiology of bone metastasis and its association with hypercalcemia, and how I think these complications of cancer should be treated.

Granulomatous prostatitis is a rare chronic inflammation and its etiology is not well understood. There is difficulty in differential diagnosis with prostatic cancer. But RMN and ultrasound guided biopsy can confirm the diagnosis. The authors report 15 cases and discuss etiological, clinical and diagnostic aspects.

TITLE: Surgical therapy for locally advanced bladder cancer.
PUBDATE: 19961001
Radical cystectomy followed by a urinary diversion or an orthotopic neobladder remains standard treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer. The advances in surgical technique and reconstructive options allow many patients to enjoy a high quality of life after surgical extirpation. For those unable or unwilling to undergo a radical cystectomy, several treatment alternatives exist, using aggressive TUR and combinations of chemotherapy and/or radiation. Continued investigations into the biological behavior of this malignancy, as well as the identification of more effective chemotherapeutic agents, will allow more definitive treatment approaches with improved outcomes.

PUBDATE: 19920101
We treated a patient with lung cancer in whom a hypercoagulopathy was induced acutely by chemotherapy. He received systemic chemotherapy twice and in both instances developed disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC), accompanied by acute decrements of the peripheral platelet count and plasma fibrinogen, an increment of the fibrin degradation products (FDP), and bleeding tendency with the appearance of skin purpura. In each instance, the plasma thrombosis-inducing activity (TIA) appeared one to three days after chemotherapy and subsided subsequently.

PUBDATE: 19911101
One autopsy case with small cell lung cancer and the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) is reported. Both plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) levels were high, and the presence of significantly high levels of ANP and AVP in tumor tissue was confirmed by gel chromatography and radioimmunoassay techniques. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first case in which ectopic ANP production and its secretion into blood (leading to SIADH) were proved.

TITLE: Proton-therapy, present status.
PUBDATE: 19930601
At the moment, proton-therapy is the most advanced radiotherapeutic technique in cancer treatment. The use of the high energy proton beam (from 70 MeV to 200 MeV) lets a Bragg's peak be moved to different depths, so allowing personal radiotherapeutic treatment. In recent years, many proton-therapy centers have grown up throughout the world with very satisfactory clinical results, first of all in eye melanoma treatment. The future expectations are very promising, even if the very high installation and maintenance expenses of a synchrotron (for proton production) hinder the development of such a method.

Prostatic cancer was the first malignancy in which tumor markers could be used to follow the response to therapy or progression of the prostate cancer. The use of these tumor markers has been of significant clinical value in diagnosis and follow-up of patients. Over the years, significant technical improvements have been made on the sensitivity and specificity of the assays for prostatic acid phosphatase.

Adjuvant therapy has a positive impact in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women with primary breast cancer. Some general principles can be used in making treatment decisions; however, the precise role of adjuvant treatment in breast cancer remains unclear in most clinical settings. Prognostic factors are discussed, along with information on uses of chemotherapy and tamoxifen.

Prevention and early detection of skin cancers are crucial to reducing morbidity and mortality. Armed with the above information and with some experience, the primary care physician can understand risk factors and recognize common benign and malignant skin tumors. This allows the primary care physician to play a key role in teaching patients about skin cancer prevention and in screening patients for skin cancers.

In the past decade there have been significant improvements in chemotherapy for advanced ovarian cancer. Platinum-based chemotherapy has improved response rates and, to a lesser degree, prolonged survival. Taxol and its combination with platinum drugs holds the promise for even further improvements in survival. Clinical trials are evaluating issues such as dose-intensity, new combinations, and drug resistance.

PUBDATE: 19920901
Free radial forearm flap was used to replace the tissue defect caused by pull-through operation for cancer of the mouth in 13 cases. There was no total or partial flap failure. The greatest advantage of the method is that the restriction of the tongue movement is less when compared to the results of other methods since the thin forearm flaps are well adaptable and are of a pliable nature. The newly developed lower alveolar crest makes the prosthetic rehabilitation possible.

PUBDATE: 19910401
The inhaled tobacco smoke is the most important determinant in the etiology of lung cancer and there is a clear dose-effect relation between lung cancer risk and the duration of smoking, the number of cigarettes and the intensity of inhalation. The opinions about lung cancer risk from passive smoking are divided and the published data are still in discussion. Occupational substances include chromates, nickel, beryllium, alkylated compounds, vinylchloride, arsenic compounds and in particular asbestos. Fortunately air pollution has no or small part in the etiology of lung cancer.
