TITLE: Epidural administration of opiates by a new device.
PUBDATE: 19871201
Epidural administration of opiates as a long-term treatment of cancer pain, even for out-patients, is now well established. Most reports describe intermittent injections given several times a day, which may have technical and personal disadvantages. Continuous epidural infusion may be preferable. This report describes 16 patients who were treated with epidural opiates delivered by plastic infusion pumps. Pain relief was effective, the equipment was inexpensive and home treatment was easily accomplished.

TITLE: Bovine leukosis--its importance to the dairy industry in the United States.
PUBDATE: 19821101
Bovine leukosis describes lymphatic cancers of cattle. The most common form of this disease occurs in adult animals and is caused by bovine leukemia virus. Infection is widespread in the United States, especially in dairy cattle, but the virus produces tumors in only a small percentage of infected animals. Nevertheless, bovine leukemia virus has been receiving attention from the dairy industry because of its importance in health certification of cattle or semen intended for export. Another source of concern is whether bovine leukemia virus poses any risk to human health. These problems are discussed in the light of recent technological advances in tumor virus research and specifically regarding our current understanding of the biology of bovine leukemia virus.

PUBDATE: 19880601
A case of penile cancer with bilateral metastatic inguinal lymph nodes in a 68-year-old male is reported. We used combination chemotherapy with methotrexate, bleomycin, and cisplatin for 2 courses before ilioinguinal lymphadenectomy. The surgical specimen of ilioinguinal lymph nodes revealed no viable tumors. It is clear that this combination therapy was effective against metastatic penile cancer and the role of preoperative chemotherapy is becoming increasingly important in metastatic penile cancer. This chemotherapy and surgical approach deserves additional trial in patients with metastatic penile cancer.

Forty-two evaluable patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer were treated with teniposide at doses ranging from 120 to 180 mg/m2 on Days 1, 3, and 5 every 3 weeks. Thirty-four patients had received no prior chemotherapy. Seven partial responses (16.6%) were obtained (21% in chemotherapy-unexposed patients). Marrow toxicity was the main side effect: life-threatening thrombocytopenia occurred in 9% of patients, and 54.5% experienced severe leukopenia. Teniposide, at the doses and schedule employed, has moderate activity in non-small cell lung cancer.

TITLE: [Late effects of cancer chemotherapy]
PUBDATE: 19870401
Patients with specific types of cancer have achieved substantial prolongation of survival after successful cancer chemotherapy. Furthermore, cancer chemotherapeutic agents are being widely used as immunosuppressive drugs in patients with benign conditions. Both of these patient populations are at risk for development of late complications of treatment. Though the late effects of chemotherapy are less well defined, they are insidious in onset and not manifested clinically until damage have become overt and irreversible. Many reports on the late effects of chemotherapy demonstrate the importance of assessing not only the therapeutic results of various treatment program but also of evaluating the long-term complications of therapy in order to maximize the benefit of the treatment. Thus, skillful and judicious application of chemotherapy produces a minimum of delayed consequences.

TITLE: Gastric malignancy: ten year experience at a community teaching hospital.
PUBDATE: 19820601
A ten-year review of gastric malignancy was undertaken and several factors examined. The degree of organ involvement played a significant role in determination of survival. Surgical resection, either palliative or curative, was associated with a more favorable short-term survival and bypass alone appeared to add nothing to patient survival time. The general lack of symptoms in early gastric cancer appears to be a majority determinant of the advanced state of malignancy in these patients. Early screening may represent a partial solution to this dilemma.

PUBDATE: 19881101
Twelve variants of uterine cavity structure were defined on analysis of 52 hysterocervicograms performed in patients with cancer of the uterine body. Using the method of linear programming, the most effective schemes for the location of radiation sources were proposed to ensure optimum dose distribution in intracavitary irradiation. Sources I and II were the main contributors to dose distribution. The use of sequential radiation sources was appropriate in considerable sizes of the uterine cavity. In a spherically shaped uterine cavity dose distribution could be ensured by using only one source, located in the center.

PUBDATE: 19820401
Of the various types of bronchogenic carcinoma small cell carcinoma has the poorest prognosis. It is the most malignant of the histological subtypes of lung cancer owing to its rapid growth and early, widespread metastases. Small cell carcinomas are radiosensitive and respond to cytotoxic therapy. In the Second Surgical Department of the Vienna University Hospital, 70 "early-stage" small cell carcinomas were resected between 1955 and 1974. 27.5% of the patients with stage I and II carcinomas survived for more than 5 years without symptoms. "Curative" surgery is selected cases leads to prolonged survival in patients with localized lesions.

TITLE: Heterogeneity in survival analysis.
PUBDATE: 19881101
I discuss the impact of individual heterogeneity in survival analysis. It is well known that this phenomenon may distort what is observed. A general class of mixing (or frailty) distributions is applied, extending a model of Hougaard. The extension allows part of the population to be non-susceptible, and contains the traditional gamma distribution as a special case. I consider the mixing of both a constant and a Weibull individual rate, and also discuss the comparison of rates from two populations. A number of practical examples are mentioned. Finally, I analyse two data sets, the main one containing data from the Norwegian Cancer Registry on the survival of breast cancer patients. The statistical analysis is of necessity speculative, but may still provide some insight.

PUBDATE: 19890101
Based on our 14-year experience with breast-preserving treatment of breast cancer, we recommend limited surgical intervention for the removal of a small mammary carcinoma under the proviso that adequate radiotherapy is available and that the patient can be thoroughly followed up. We are convinced that the good cosmetic result and especially the excellent psychological reaction are particularly important in order that women lose their fear of an ablative operation. Only then, by performing an operation which is not excessive at the earliest possible time can the prognosis of this type of carcinoma, which is increasing be improved.

TITLE: Undernotification of diagnosed cancer cases to the Stockholm Cancer Registry.
PUBDATE: 19850301
A study of undernotification to the Stockholm Regional Cancer Registry comprised cancer diagnosed in 1978. Non-notified cases were identified by linking the cancer register with two independent sources of information viz. the Swedish cause-of-death register (fatal cases) and the regional in-patient care register (non-fatal cases). The estimated deficit in the cancer register for 1978 was 4% of the total cancer incidence for that year. The unreported non-fatal cases were followed up for five years, during which time more than half of the cancer diagnoses were entered on death certificates. If the cancer register had been supplemented with information from death certificates, therefore, only about 1% of all non-notified cases would have remained unregistered five years after diagnosis.

PUBDATE: 19830101
In four patients with early esophageal carcinoma who underwent radical surgery, one died of cancer recurrence 13 months after surgery, two had an uneventful postoperative course after over five years and one succumbed to an incidental pneumonia 18 months postoperatively. Cytophotometric DNA analysis of the cancer cells reflected well the outcome of these patients. One recurrent patient had malignant pattern similar to that seen in usual advanced carcinoma of the esophagus, whereas the remaining three patient without recurrence throughout the postoperative course showed less malignant patterns. These result suggested the potential usefulness of cytophotometric DNA analysis in assessing the prognosis of early esophageal carcinoma.

TITLE: Denture wearing and oral cancer.
PUBDATE: 19840801
Four hundred patients with oral cancer were studied to determine if there appeared to be a risk related to denture wearing. Forty-three percent of the group wore dentures, and there seemed to be no correlation between the wearing of dentures and any specific cancer site. Furthermore, there was no difference between denture and nondenture wearers relative to age, sex, time from first signs or symptoms to diagnosis, tumor stage, or tobacco use. In addition, a large number of individuals in the general population wear dentures, and carcinomas occur infrequently in denture-bearing sites. Other studies have shown no difference between denture wearers and control groups in the occurrence of oral cancer. Therefore, it does not seem plausable at this time to consider denture irritation as a significant carcinogenic aggravating factor.

PUBDATE: 19830501
Lactic acidosis is a rare metabolic complication of cancer. An analysis of the cases reported in the English and French literature shows that all the patients have extensive neoplastic disease. Metastatic hepatic lesions are present in the large majority of cases, suggesting that alteration of liver function is part of the clinical picture. Chemotherapy against the neoplastic disease is the only effective treatment of this type of lactic acidosis.
