TITLE: Venous thromboembolism in oncology.
PUBDATE: 20040301
Thromboembolic events represent well-recognised complications of neoplastic disease contributing, in a significant manner, to the morbidity and mortality from cancer. The close relationship between the activation of blood coagulation and tumor growth is known since 1865, when Armand Trousseau first described the clinical association between primary or idiopathic venous thromboembolism and an underlying occult malignancy. However, only in the last decades significant advances in this field have been achieved, both on the comprehension of the complex interactions between the tumor and the hemostatic system, and on the prophylaxis and therapy of the thromboembolic manifestations in cancer patients.

TITLE: Management of cervical metastasis.
PUBDATE: 20040301
Cervical metastasis from head and neck cancer is a common occurrence. Despite improvements in diagnostic modalities and treatment options, survival in this group of patients has not changed appreciably over the past few decades. Cervical metastasis portends a poor prognosis and also presents a diagnostic and treatment dilemma for the head and neck oncologist. This article reviews the current state of the art in the diagnosis and treatment of this difficult group of patients and the literature on the topic.

PUBDATE: 19921201
Now that the radiation literature for breast cancer is well established in terms of both local control and survival endpoints, especially for invasive breast cancer, recent reports focus on refining selection criteria of patients for treatment and on minimizing complications and maximizing cosmetic effects. The optimal treatment of patients with ductal carcinoma in situ remains a controversial issue, and the optimal sequencing of adjuvant chemotherapy and primary radiation in patients with breast-conserving surgery is emerging as a topic requiring further study.

PUBDATE: 19910601
To reduce the risk of intraoperative metastases and increasing ablastic principles in radical surgical treatment of patients with cancer of the rectum the authors developed a scheme of preoperative treatment including endolymphatic polychemotherapy and UHF-hyperthermia. 5-fluorouracil and platidiam were used in the treatment of 30 patients with different histological types of adenocarcinomas of the rectum (grade III-IV). After treatment the viable epithelial component in the tumour was 26.5% as compared with 44.8% in the control. The effect of treatment was favourable both objectively and subjectively. The treatment was well tolerated.

Dermatomyositis (DM) is associated to malignant neoplasia in up to one third of the cases. Not considering breast neoplasia, ovarian cancer is the malignancy most frequently associated with DM in women. This study shows the evolution and outcome of a case of this association managed in our unit. The principal features of similar cases reported in the literature are summarized.

At the 17th Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension (Amsterdam, June 7-11, 1998), clinicians and scientists from all over the world exchanged the results of latest research on the pathophysiology, prevention and management of hypertension. Progress in two key areas of basic research was presented at the meeting: ion channels and experimental genetics. In the clinical arena, a number of large, long-term studies were presented on topics that included risk factors of cardiovascular events in male hypertensives; antihypertensive therapy and the risk of cancer; and antihypertensive therapy in dementia. A population-wide approach was stressed as essential in a session on diet intervention and hypertension in the 21st century.

PUBDATE: 19990501
Regular mammography screening combined with timely and appropriate treatment can reduce mortality from breast cancer by 30% in women aged 50-69 years and 16% in women aged 40-49 years. A physician's recommendation has been strongly associated with a patient having a mammogram. This report analyzes data collected during 1997 in North Carolina as part of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), which indicated that 23% of women aged > or =40 years who had had a routine physical examination during the 2 years preceding the survey did not recall having a discussion about mammography with a health-care provider.

Laser Doppler velocitometry is novel non-invasive technique to assess cutaneous microcirculation. Patients undergoing radiation therapy for head and neck cancer with convention and accelerated fraction action were evaluated under normal condition before and after radiation. A total of 70 sites in group A (conventional fractionation) and 35 sites in group B (accelerated fractionation were evaluated. Increase in perfusion was noted in patients undergoing radiation with accelerated fractionation.

Recent worldwide media speculation that silicone gel-filled breast implants may be linked to an increased incidence of breast and other cancers, and connective tissue disease (particularly systemic sclerosis) has caused concern to the medical profession and public alike. Until carefully controlled studies have been performed to prove the safety of these implants, the US Food and Drug Administration has restricted their use to research and breast reconstruction. Research has so far failed to prove a causative relationship between silicone implants and cancer or connective tissue disorders.

Human prostatic acid phosphatase (ACPP) has been used as a diagnostic marker for prostate cancer. It is synthesized under androgen regulation and secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. We have confirmed the previous assignment of the ACPP gene to chromosome 3 by probing a panel of 25 human-Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrids, and we have further localized the ACPP gene to chromosome 3q21-q23 by fluorescence in situ hybridization.

PUBDATE: 19981001
Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common epithelial thyroid tumor and comprises approximately 80% of all thyroid cancers. In this article, the authors discuss the data showing that total thyroidectomy is the treatment of choice of clinically significant PTC, and review an algorithm for the management of lymph node metastases. Although the prognosis for patients with PTC is generally good, appropriate surgical management (total thyroidectomy plus 131I and life-long TSH suppression) can further reduce recurrence and cancer death rates significantly.

PUBDATE: 19910801
From 1971 to 1985 at the Ahmadu Bello University Hospital, Zaria, 245 patients with multinodular goitre were operated upon mostly for cosmesis. Clinically unsuspected malignancy was present in 50 (20 pc) of the resected specimens of which 26 were follicular and 20 papillary. This pattern conforms with the reports from other African Zones of endemic goitre where the frequency of cancer is lower in the clinically solitary nodular goitre. Thus, the management strategy ought to regard the multinodular goitre as pre-malignant and operations should be performed earlier on this account.

TITLE: Different lectin-binding patterns in primary breast cancers and their metastases.
PUBDATE: 19901001
The expression of glycoconjugates in primary tumors and their metastases in 18 consecutive cases of metastasized breast cancer was studied by use of lectin histochemistry. Paraffin sections were stained with a panel of seven fluorochrome-labeled lectins with defined sugar specificities. The study revealed variation in the lectin binding patterns of individual cancers. In the primary tumors the lectin reactivity was diversified, whereas in their respective metastases it was rather homogeneous. This finding indicates that there is intratumoral heterogeneity in the primary cancers, whereas the selected subclones of malignant cells with restricted glycoconjugate expression seem to give rise to metastases.

TITLE: Antioxidants and cancer, part 3: quercetin.
PUBDATE: 20000601
Quercetin is a flavonoid molecule ubiquitous in nature. A number of its actions make it a potential anti-cancer agent, including cell cycle regulation, interaction with type II estrogen binding sites, and tyrosine kinase inhibition. Quercetin appears to be associated with little toxicity when administered orally or intravenously. Much in vitro and some preliminary animal and human data indicate quercetin inhibits tumor growth. More research is needed to elucidate the absorption of oral doses and the magnitude of the anti-cancer effect.
