TITLE: Symposium on infectious complications of neoplastic disease (Part I). Introduction and epidemiology.
PUBDATE: 19840301
An approach to infections in cancer patients is outlined that divides such infections into those due to underlying disease, those related to underlying disease plus therapy, and those related to therapy alone. The incidence of such infections in each of the categories is discussed, together with a general outline of patterns and trends in regard to involved microorganisms. Several specific areas discussed include: problems of superinfection with newer antimicrobial agents; the current inadequacy of diagnostic techniques; the potential for early treatment with monoclonal antibodies; the potential for augmenting one or more host defenses prior to sundering other defenses during antitumor chemotherapy; the potential value of a variety of nutrients that either may be depleted or might be of benefit in enhancing host defense mechanisms.

TITLE: [Relationship between T cell infiltration in breast cancer tissues and prognosis]
PUBDATE: 19831101
The relationship between the degree of T cell infiltration in cancer tissues and prognosis was studied in 26 patients with breast cancer. The degree of T cell infiltration was divided into 4 groups according to the number of infiltrating T cells. There was a good correlation between the degree of T cell infiltration and the survival period or disease-free period. It may be clinically useful to check the degree of T cell infiltration in cancer tissues for predicting the prognosis of patients with breast cancer.

TITLE: Clinically localized ovarian cancer. Progress in management.
PUBDATE: 19850301
A decade ago the five-year survival rate in patients with stage I ovarian carcinoma was only 60% to 70%. Significant advances in staging and treatment, however, promise an improvement. Initially, improvement will be seen because some patients with clinically localized ovarian cancer will be discovered to have subclinical or occult metastasis at initial surgical staging and thus will be upstaged and treated appropriately for more advanced disease. More encouraging are results of recent studies on adjuvant therapy, which indicate that in some patients the need for postoperative adjuvant therapy may be obviated. A major advance in diagnosis would be development of a serum test specific for ovarian cancer--a discovery that may be forthcoming.

TITLE: Cancer of the esophagus: a model of causation.
PUBDATE: 19820901
Cancer of the esophagus has shown peculiar worldwide geographic clustering; it has also occurred in excess among individuals in lower socioeconomic census tracts of certain cities. These facts have prompted inquiry into its etiology. Emphasis has been given to environmental effects, particularly mechanical and/or irritating processes, dietary deficiency, and a variety of carcinogens. Immunological susceptibility has been considered, although only infrequently. Overall, primary genetic factors have received short shrift in epidemiological investigations of this disease. An hypothesis of stress related cancer in concert with genotypic susceptibility is presented.

PUBDATE: 19840501
We evaluated immunosuppressive acidic protein (IAP) as a tumor marker in renal cell cancer. The study was comprised of patients with renal cell cancer (6 stage A, 3 stage C, 11 stage D, 7 recurrences). The IAP positive rate of renal cell cancer was 84%, the mean was 937.5 +/- 442.1 ug/ml. The positive rate is statistically higher than in other malignant and benign urological diseases. The IAP positive rate tended to increase with cancer stage. IAP may represent a tumor marker in renal cell cancer.

PUBDATE: 19840601
Collision tumors of the stomach are rare tumors, with about 32 cases reported in the English and German literature. In this report the case of a 65-year-old male with a synchronous primary malignant lymphoma (immunocytoma) and an early cancer of the stomach is presented. A total gastrectomy with esophago-jejunostomy was performed. Postoperatively the affected region was irradiated. 30 months later a re-evaluation did not reveal any recurrence of the disease. The diagnostic and therapeutic problems of collision tumors of the stomach and a possible relationship between the two tumors are discussed against the background of the literature.

The authors retrospectively analyse the results achieved in recent years by surgical treatment of 103 malignant primary or secondary liver cancers: (Three patients have been operated on twice at different times for recurrence.) 23 hepatic resections were performed for benign lesions. The operative mortality is very low, the incidence of postoperative complications is minimal, and the survival up to 8 years is rather satisfactory. In all cases we used Ton That Tung's surgical technique, that is, "finger fracture with intraparenchymal ligature of the vasculobiliary pedicles."

The incidence of pancreatic cancer has increased recently. The average age of pancreatic cancer patients in our series was 60.6 years; the male to female ratio was 2.3:1. As for tumor location, the head (45.5%) was the most frequent followed by the body (32.7%) and the tail (20%). Pancreatic cancers were histologically classified as duct carcinoma (88.2%), acinar cell carcinoma (0.9%), islet cell carcinoma (1.8%) and undifferentiated carcinoma (9.1%). In 17 cases (15.5%), diabetes mellitus was an accompanying complication.

PUBDATE: 19831201
Esophagectomy without thoracotomy was performed in 10 cases of cancer of the esophagus, whatever its site of origin. Advantages of this procedure include the absence of a third right thoracic approach and of secondary hemostatis, complications, the cervical anastomosis, and the ascension of the gastroplasty into the esophageal bed. Though less carcinolytic than excision through a thoracic approach, this technique provides identical survival with a lower mortality and a very reduced morbidity. This therapeutic strategy could represent progress for patients who usually have generalized spread of the disease at the time of diagnosis.

TITLE: Effect of benoxaprofen on release of slow-reacting substances from human lung tissue in vitro.
PUBDATE: 19820801
1. macroscopically normal human lung tissue was obtained from operative specimens removed for lung cancer and challenged with antigen or calcium ionophore. The release of histamine and slow-reacting substances was measured by fluorimetric and bioassay techniques respectively. 2. Benoxaprofen, a drug with inhibitory effects on the lipoxygenase and cyclo-oxygenase pathways, caused a dose-related reduction of release of slow-reacting substances without affecting histamine release. 3. These results with human lung tissue in vitro suggest that benoxaprofen may be used to investigate the role of slow-reacting substances in experimental and clinical asthma.

TITLE: [Antitumor and toxic properties of retinoid C15]
PUBDATE: 19820401
A study was made of antitumor and toxic properties of retinoid C15 which has some characteristic structural features of retinoic acid natural metabolites; such as ethyl-2E, 4E-3-methyl-5-/2,6-dimethyl-6-ethoxycarbonyl-/3-oxo-1-cyclohexene-1-yl/-2,4-pentadienoate. The substance inhibited the growth of transplantable tumors of the uterine cervix. Lewis carcinoma and rumen cancer. This ability was dependent on the tumor growth rate. The substance proved less toxic then retinoic acid or methyl retionate. Injection of retinoid C15 was accompanied by the widening of the paracortical zone of the mesenterial lymph node and by the increased number of lymphoid follicles in the spleen.

TITLE: [Problems after surgery of the colon (author's transl)]
PUBDATE: 19820401
After surgery of the colon 3 types of sequelae may be observed: 1. Acute intra- and postoperative complications, as insufficiency of the anastomosis, ileus, and rebleeding; sequelae of these acute complications may be stenosis of the stenosis and intraabdominal adhesions. 2. Chronic postoperative syndromes like blind-loop syndrome, diarrhoea and/or continence problems, problems arising from an anus praeter, disturbances of sexual and bladder function. These symptoms occur rather rarely after partial resection of the rectum or amputation of the rectum. 3. Recurrence of the main disease, especially cancer disease, be it a local recurrence or metastasis. A well organized follow-up of cancer patients may increase survival time only in a few cases, but it definitely may improve quality of life by different means.

PUBDATE: 19841001
The diagnosis of pelvic recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix is made on the basis of clinical assessment and radiologic confirmation. Occasionally the diagnosis is confused with sequelae of radiation therapy. The authors describe the symptoms and signs of appendicitis mimicking recurrent squamous cell carcinoma in a 43-year-old female. A 10-year search of the literature has failed to detect another case report or review. The authors believe that, if there is ever any doubt as to the diagnosis of pelvic recurrent squamous cell cancer, exploratory laparotomy and biopsies are warranted for confirmation.

Two new human transitional cell carcinoma lines have been established in long term tissue culture. UM-UC-1 was derived from a bladder cancer metastasis, and UM-UC-2 originated from a ureteral carcinoma. Both cell lines produce tumors in athymic nude mice. The cell lines have been characterized by isoenzyme phenotype and karyotype. Both of these methods differentiate UM-UC-1 from UM-UC-2.

PUBDATE: 19820301
In order to help physicians provide informational support to young patients with cancer, 63 adolescent cancer patients and 53 physicians completed self-administered questionnaires; 30 disease-related information items were included on the questionnaire. Although physicians and patients agreed on one-half of the items, they differed significantly on the others. Physician responses were not significantly related to the physicians' level of training, suggesting that education programs on this topic should be required at all levels of medical training. Psychiatrists may have a role to play in designing these programs.
