TITLE: [Clinical significance of colorectal cancers arising after partial or total gastrectomy]
PUBDATE: 19830501
Among colorectal cancer patients operated at the 2nd Department of Surgery, Kyushu University Hospital between 1974 to 1980. 6 developed this cancer after partial or total gastrectomy for gastric cancer or ulcer. The interval between the gastric operation and colorectal surgery ranged from 15 months to 17 years. The colorectal cancers arose in the transverse colon (1) the sigmoid colon (2), there were 3 rectal cancers. Therefore, not only the occurrence of recurrent or primary cancer in the remnant stomach, but also the occurrence of colorectal cancer should be monitored carefully after partial or total gastrectomy for gastric cancer or ulcer.

PUBDATE: 19861201
Thirty-five small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients were treated with combination chemotherapy including adriamycin, cyclophosphamide, etoposide (ACE). Out of 32 evaluable patients there were 21.9% complete responses and 53.1% partial responses with an overall median survival of 37 weeks (50 weeks for patients with limited disease and 34 weeks for patients with extended disease). Toxicity was generally well tolerated. In conclusion the ACE regimen results in being active and safe in the treatment of SCLC.

TITLE: Treatment of carcinoma of the penis: the case for primary lymphadenectomy.
PUBDATE: 19860701
There were 65 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the penis followed for a minimum of 5 years. Patients with stage I disease uniformly survived with local treatment only. Of the patients with stages II and III carcinoma of the penis 88 and 66 per cent, respectively, were free of disease if lymphadenectomy was performed shortly following treatment of the primary lesion, compared to only 38 and 0 per cent, respectively, if the primary lesion was treated locally and no lymphadenectomy was performed. These data support the concept that lymphadenectomy should be an integral part of the primary treatment in patients with stages II and III penile cancer.

TITLE: Teaching surgical oncology to medical students.
PUBDATE: 19831101
A recent review of the curriculum at University of Kansas Medical Center-Kansas City revealed several deficiencies in oncology teaching in the medical school curriculum. Analysis of the surgery core course final examination showed a weaker response by students to surgical oncology items than nononcologic questions. A multidisciplinary cancer course and tumor conference were then added to the surgery core curriculum. Analysis of student performance since this addition reveals that the multimodal course improved the successful response rate to surgical oncology questions on the final examination. This effect has been sustained through nine consecutive student group rotations. These results suggest that surgical oncology teaching can be effectively improved by a multidisciplinary effort.

TITLE: Epidemiology of breast cancer and hair dyes.
PUBDATE: 19830901
In a case-control study of 401 breast cancer cases and 625 age-matched controls, the possible etiologic role of hair dye usage was investigated. No association was found between hair dye use and breast cancer (odds ratio = 1.02; 95% confidence interval = 0.77-1.32) or any factors affecting dosage, frequency, duration, type, or color of hair dye. Important confounders of hair dye use included religion and smoking status. When stratified by 10-year age groups, there was no appreciable trend in risk status between case and referent populations. No dose-response relationship (frequency X duration X shade X type of dye used) was found, even after controlling for factors affecting hair dye use. A multiple logistic regression analysis supported the absence of this relationship.

PUBDATE: 19841201
We discussed the diagnostic value of urinary enzymes as non invasive test of renal integrity in medicine. Then we assayed the N-Acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) excretion in urines of inpatients receiving cis-platinum, a useful anti-cancer but nephrotoxic agent fort the proximal tubule; we used the colorimetric instead of fluorimetric procedure, recently described in detail by Price who tested it on patients with a variety of renal diseases. The results demonstrated the sensibility and the specificity of colorimetric procedure, and therefore we concluded that the assay of urinary NAG activity may be used in the clinical chemistry and toxicology laboratory, because the test is simple to perform.

PUBDATE: 19850301
In this report, operated advanced gastric cancer was analysed based on 96 cases of carcinoma of the proper muscle layer (pm-cancer) experienced between 1961 and 1982 at the Third Department of Internal Medicine, Tohoku University School of Medicine, and its associated hospital. Patterns of macroscopic findings in pm-cancer were classified into three types: (1) early type, (2) early-like cancer type, and (3) Borrmann's variety type. The degree of lymph node metastasis ascended in types (1), (2) and (3) in that order, and the five-year survival rate descended in the same order.

PUBDATE: 19831001
Random bone marrow aspiration biopsies of iliac crests and bone scans/skeletal X-rays were evaluated in 163 new cases of carcinoma of the prostate in order to assess the incidence of bone metastases and to compare the sensitivity of these two methods. Bone marrow biopsy revealed cancer cells in 18.4% of all cases. The detection rate of skeletal metastases of bone scan/skeletal X-ray was 32.5%. In this series all patients with positive biopsies had also positive scans. The superior sensitivity of bone scans compared with bone marrow biopsies in detecting metastatic spread of prostatic cancer is shown.

TITLE: Space-time clustering of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Greenland Eskimos.
PUBDATE: 19851201
Evidence of epidemicity of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) was sought in Greenland Inuits, who have a high incidence of this cancer, by examining the births of NPC cases for evidence of clustering in time and space. Births of cases were concentrated in autumn and winter. Fifty-four cases were analysed, and a two-fold excess of clustering within one year was observed, both within single districts and between adjacent districts. This excess was not significant at the 5% level; about 90 cases would have been required to confirm the observed effect at this level of significance. It is suggested that a search for space-time clustering of NPC cases in larger high-risk populations might prove more fruitful.

TITLE: Detection of antibodies against the cellular protein p53 in sera from patients with breast cancer.
PUBDATE: 19821001
Antibodies reacting with the host protein p53 were found in the sera of patients with primary or secondary carcinoma of the breast. Fourteen out of the 155 sera from breast cancer patients tested were positive for anti-p53 antibodies (9%) and no positives were detected among 164 control sera from normal women tested. The locations of the first metastasis in patients with positive sera were unusual, with more lung metastases and fewer bone metastases than expected. The detection of anti-p53 antibodies indicates that p53 is altered in amount, type or presentation in breast tumors so that it becomes immunogenic.

All patients had an elevated bronchitis score over that of normal controls. The cause of this bronchitis is likely multifactorial and was not uniformly predicted by bronchial neutrophil counts, current smoking history, or PFT abnormality. All patients had, in addition to high bronchitis score, evidence of increased bronchial neutrophils and/or PFT abnormality or cancer. These findings lead to a change in management prior to heart transplantation.

TITLE: Thyroid suppression and medical ablation for differentiated thyroid cancer.
PUBDATE: 19861101
Patients with thyroid cancer benefit from treatment with exogenous thyroid hormone for two reasons: it provides adequate levels of thyroid hormone to peripheral tissues, and it reduces the level of thyrotropin, which may be an important growth factor in patients with differentiated malignant neoplasms. The use of radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer is highly controversial. Its most appropriate applications are in follicular cancers, in older patients, and in distant functioning metastases. Its value in papillary cancer is questionable, particularly in young patients. There is a great need for effective basic and clinical research on the natural course of differentiated thyroid cancer and the effects of specific therapies.

PUBDATE: 19840801
Four cases of so-called carcinosarcoma of the breast were studied histopathologically. The patients were females aged 44, 37, 44 and 77 who were admitted to the Cancer Institute Hospital for breast tumors. Histologically, the tumors showed proliferation of sarcomatous cells with relatively small amounts of papillotubular carcinoma or scirrhous carcinoma. There were transitions between the sarcomatous portion and carcinoma. Two cases showed squamous metaplasia merging into the sarcomatous component, whereas the other 2 showed transition from adenocarcinoma to sarcomatous element. Lymph nodal metastases in 2 cases were papillotubular carcinoma. One patient died of lung and brain metastases, and autopsy revealed only sarcomatous element.

PUBDATE: 19890901
Serum testosterone level (STL) was examined in 25 male patients with cardiac or gastric carcinoma before and after operation and 28 male patients with benign diseases as control. The preoperative STL of patients with carcinoma was lower than that of the control (P less than 0.001). Postoperatively STL of these patients rose to the level of control group. When cancer recurred, STL again dropped to low level. STL was lower when cancer had invaded beyond the serosa than that limited to the musculature. Therefore, STL may be a good parameter for diagnosis and prognosis in patients with cancer of the stomach and gastric cardia.

TITLE: Vindesine and mitomycin C in inoperable non-small cell lung cancer.
PUBDATE: 19860801
Twenty-nine patients with inoperable non-small cell lung cancer were treated as out-patients with vindesine and mitomycin C. Eight patients had a complete response, and nine a partial response. Response was generally associated with either stable or improving ECOG and symptom scores. The incidence of serious side-effects was low--only two patients' white cell count fell below 3000 cells/mm2, only one patient's platelet count fell below 100,000 cells/mm2, and two patients developed vomiting associated with treatment. The combination of vindesine and mitomycin C appears to be effective in the treatment of inoperable non-small cell lung cancer. Side effects were generally well tolerated and allowed out-patient treatment.
