TITLE: [Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy]
PUBDATE: 19860201
Gastrostomy by endoscopy is a simple and fast procedure which does not require general anaesthesia. Its morbidity and mortality rates are low. With the initial technique, the gastrostomy tube was pulled in by a thread introduced percutaneously into the stomach. In cases with oesophageal stenosis, using a Foley balloon catheter is useful. Gastrostomy can be transformed into jejunostomy by a similar method. The main indications of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy are cancer of the upper respiratory or digestive tract, notably those complicated by fistulae, and disorders of deglutition due to abnormal buccal and pharyngeal stages.

PUBDATE: 19860901
In a French case-control study of 1,010 breast cancer cases and 1,950 controls with nonmalignant diseases, the risk of breast cancer was found to be positively associated with frequency of cheese consumption and the level of fat in the milk consumed. A negative association was found between frequency of yogurt consumption and the risk of breast cancer. No association was found between the consumption of butter and the risk of breast cancer. The positive association between a daily consumption of alcohol and the risk of breast cancer previously reported was not altered when dairy produce consumption was taken into account.

PUBDATE: 19881201
We report a protocol for concomitant purification to homogeneity of both prostatic acid phosphatase [orthophosphoric-monoester phosphohydrolase (acid optimum), EC 3.1.3.2] and prostate-specific antigen, from human seminal fluid. The method requires only two chromatographic steps: passage through an Affigel-Blue column and gel filtration HPLC. This is a fast, efficient procedure for purification of these two important tumor markers, which are specific for prostatic cancer.

TITLE: Rationale and strategy for prevention of anthracycline cardiotoxicity with the bisdioxopiperazine, ICRF-187.
PUBDATE: 19870101
Anthracyclines are amongst the most effective antitumor agents currently utilized. The major impediment to their use has been the development of cardiotoxicity with chronic administration. In an effort to overcome this limitation we have utilizated an approach to abrogate the cardiotoxicity with a drug, ICRF-187, which protects against the anthracycline cardiomyopathy in all animal species so far tested. This strategy assumes that separate mechanisms of cardiac toxicity and antitumor activity exist. We are currently testing this hypothesis in a randomized clinical trial of women with advanced breast cancer who are randomized to receive 5FU, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide (FAC) or FAC plus ICRF-187.

PUBDATE: 19880401
A prospective randomized trial for metastatic prostatic cancer in 220 patients who were refractory to hormone therapy was conducted by the National Prostatic Cancer Project from 1984 to 1985. As of July, 1986, the evaluation of these patients reflected no difference in response to either estramustine phosphate (Emcyt) or flutamide. Toxicities were minimal, and the observed survival and progression-free survival intervals were noteworthy in view of the overall prospects for such patients. Future studies dealing with specific quality of life issues seem to be indicated by our results.

PUBDATE: 19870901
The case report describes a situation that required staging laparotomy for ovarian cancer but the patient refused vertical incision for cosmetic reasons. The technique employed a low transverse skin incision with development of a skin flap and horizontal transection of the midabdominal wall near the level of the umbilicus. Operative exposure was adequate for standard staging procedures and the cosmetic requirements of the patient were satisfied.

TITLE: Breast cancer in older women: trends in diagnosis.
PUBDATE: 19890601
Breast cancer is a disease of elderly as well as middle-aged women. Even in patients of advanced age, breast cancer shortens life expectancy. Early diagnosis, through preventative screening with mammography and physical examination, offers the best hope of cure. Deterrents to use of mammography have included radiation risk, unnecessary biopsies, and cost. However, current low radiation doses minimize radiation risks; test specificity is much better in older women, leading to fewer unnecessary biopsies; and new Medicare guidelines lower out-of-pocket patient cost. With increased education of older women and health care providers, methods to decrease mortality from breast cancer in the elderly can become widespread.

TITLE: Metastatic carcinoma to pituitary adenomas: a report of two cases.
PUBDATE: 19880901
Two cases of carcinoma metastatic to pituitary adenomas are reported. One patient had a prostatic adenocarcinoma, giving rise to metastases in an adenoma found incidentally at autopsy; clinically and immunohistochemically, the adenoma showed lack of endocrine activity. The second patient had symptoms of cortisol excess. A corticotroph adenoma associated with a malignant neoplasm was diagnosed ante mortem; at autopsy a pancreatic endocrine neoplasm was found. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy were important in elucidating the primary tumor. The formation of extraportal vascular channels and altered blood flow may have importance in the pathogenesis of cancer metastases to pituitary adenomas.

PUBDATE: 19870901
The mortality experience of 1190 miners and 289 surface industry workers receiving workers' compensation awards for silicosis in Ontario since 1940 has been studied up to mid-1985. Both groups were found to have a significantly increased mortality from lung cancer (miners' SMR: 230; surface workers' SMR: 302) and stomach cancer (miners' SMR: 188; surface workers' SMR: 366). Adjustment for smoking and country of origin did not explain the excesses observed. The lung cancer findings are consistent with observations from silicosis registries in Europe. Possible explanatory factors are discussed.

Reported are the autopsy findings of a 55-year-old man who died unexpectedly 20 h after a subtotal gastrectomy of an early gastric cancer. The cause of his death was a superior mesenteric venous thrombosis, involving his small bowel which manifested a marked vascular engorgement. The entire small bowel mesentery was thickened and edematous, and hemorrhagic infarctions were scattered near the bowel. Many fresh thrombi could be identified in the superior mesenteric veins. This case is described, together with the legal aspects of medical malpractice.

PUBDATE: 19891201
Magnetic nuclear resonance imaging offers a new approach for assessing the spread of endometrial cancer. Clinical and histopathological data correlated well in two cases; in the third patient, the degree of vesicovaginal wall involvement was more difficult to appreciate. RMN accurately characterizes the tumor and provides information on how deeply the myometrial lesion extends, as well as on isthmic and cervical involvement. Such evaluation is conducive to more precise prognostic conclusions and may be strategically influencial on therapeutic behavior.

The continuous subcutaneous infusion of buprenorphine, a new approach to the relief of severe cancer pain, has been carried out using a portable infusion pump. The efficacy of this method was examined in 30 patients by visual analogue scale. An infusion rate of 4 micrograms/kg/day following intramuscular administration of 0.004 micrograms/kg gave satisfactory pain relief without serious complications. The minimum effective blood concentration was not detectable by high-performance liquid chromatography. Advantages of this therapy are its simplicity, applicability in many types of cancer, multiple sites of administration, and easier training on the part of health personnel.

PUBDATE: 19890201
Recessive mutations, revealed by loss of the wild-type allele, have been associated with the development of a variety of cancers in children and adults. Polymorphic chromosome 10 markers were used to screen paired tumor and lymphocyte DNA samples in 13 patients with glioblastoma multiforme. Ten patients showed loss of constitutional heterozygosity in the tumor samples. This finding suggests that a recessive gene involved in the development of glioblastoma multiforme is present on chromosome 10.

A study is presented of 330 patients with cancer of the breast who received a course of radical and restorative treatment. Studied were the dynamics of changes of the content of cholesterol, triglycerids, beta-lipoproteids, its relation with the functional state of lymphocytes and the possible ways of correction of dyslipidemia. The possibility is analyzed of employing dietotherapy, physical loads, drugs in the complex metabolic rehabilitation. It was established that the effect of this complex of measures allows to achieve a distinct reduction of immunodepression in the group of patients with an excessive body weight as well as in persons of middle and older ages.
