TITLE: Current practices in the oral management of the patient undergoing chemotherapy or bone marrow transplantation.
PUBDATE: 19990101
Abstract The oral complications associated with cancer chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation may be prevented or ameliorated by aggressive dental and oral hygiene interventions. Pretherapy dental evaluation and medically necessary oral care can eliminate potential sites of infection and trauma. A multidisciplinary approach, systematic oral assessment and consistent oral hygiene measures are critical and may be the most important factors in the prevention of significant complications.

PUBDATE: 20010301
Women who are survivors of malignancy may achieve pregnancy through oocyte donation. The largest obstacle to successful reproduction in cancer patients relates to iatrogenic damage to the primary reproductive organs associated with their primary oncology treatment. Reactive damage from surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy may render these organs nonfunctional and irreparable. In cases where the ovary is primarily affected, oocyte donation provides a logical alternative for childbearing.

PUBDATE: 19991101
Portable cellular phones and their relay stations emit ultra-high frequency waves (microwaves) with amplitude modulation and extremely low frequency pulsation. The user is absorbed by the head and reaches the nervous structures leading to increased brain temperature. The general population is exposed to a distant field with an electromagnetic intensity which depends on the distance from the emitting antennas, the presence of "passive re-emitters", and the number of communications processed by the relay station. Among the main biological effects, "radio-frequency disease", electroencephalogram disturbances, and blood pressure disorders as well as risk of cancer have been observed in humans and animals.

PUBDATE: 20001201
Selective sentinel lymphadenectomy is a standard staging procedure for patients with melanoma and is rapidly evolving into a standard procedure for breast cancer. A well-trained, multidisciplinary team is essential for the success of such a procedure. Clinical trials are under way to determine the clinical significance of sentinel lymph nodes in melanoma and breast cancer. The techniques of harvesting are being developed in other solid cancers, such as gynecologic and gastrointestinal cancer. Cellular and molecular techniques are being used to study the mechanism of micrometastasis.

Data on postmastectomy breast reconstructive surgery were examined for 52,357 female breast cancers that were treated with mastectomy and diagnosed in geographic areas covered by the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program. The proportion of cancers that involved reconstruction varied in these geographic areas in each age group (under age 70 years) by a factor of about four or five, even after adjustment for stage at diagnosis, marital status, and poverty rate of county of residence at diagnosis. Studies are needed to explain the large differences in reconstruction rates by geographic area.

PUBDATE: 19980401
Little is known about the early development of rectal cancer in patients with radiation-induced colitis. We describe two patients with a history of radiation colitis who developed rectal cancer. The macroscopic appearance of these lesions suggested that they arose de novo, but the histologic findings were more consistent with progression along the adenoma-to-carcinoma sequence, a hybrid of de novo lesion and adenoma. Early rectal cancer associated with chronic inflammation should be considered if a nonpolypoid adenomatous lesion is detected in a patient who has received pelvic radiation.

Helicobacter pylori infection is acquired in childhood, plays a causative role in chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer disease, and is associated with the development of gastric cancer. The present review focuses on recent advances in the scientific knowledge of H pylori infection in children, including clinical sequelae, diagnosis and treatment. In addition, recent insights regarding both bacterial and host factors that mediate human diseases associated with H pylori infection are discussed.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. The individual therapeutic approach and prognosis depends on accurate diagnosis and staging. Flexible bronchoscopy (FB) and transthoracic needle biopsy (TNB) are the most widely used techniques for this purpose. This article provides a critical overview of indications, diagnostic yield, and limitations of bronchoscopy and TNB in the diagnosis of lung cancer.

Adjuvant therapy is widely recommended for stage III colon cancer and stages II and III rectal cancer. Although fluorouracil-based regimens are standard, newer agents either alone or in combination may improve response rates. Although nearly all patients enter a postoperative surveillance program after surgical resection, the clinical effectiveness of such surveillance, which is not standardized, is questionable. Critical review of the use of different components (laboratory, radiographic, and endoscopic) of these programs finds little support for intensive surveillance.

Nine monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against human and rodent ING1 protein have been generated using an IL6-secreting mouse myeloma line. These antibodies are all effective in recognizing ING1 protein in ELISAs, Western blot assays, and by indirect immunofluorescence. Combining different CAb monoclonal antibodies in a Western blot assay also allows detection of the very low levels of endogenous ING1 found in fibroblast cells in culture and the identification of at least two isoforms of ING1 in normal human diploid fibroblasts and established brain cancer cell lines.

PUBDATE: 19980201
Superficial bladder tumor defined as pTa, pT1 and pTis stage is one of the most common cancer disease in the world. Intravesical BCGtherapy represents the best treatment when combined with transurethral resection to prevent tumor recurrence or progression and to lengthen the interval between recurrence. The toxicity is quite important but can be reduced by using the good procedure. Local or general immunostimulation is likely to be the exact mechanism of action but more data are needed.

We describe the case of a 72-year-old man in whom a bronchopleural fistula developed after induction chemotherapy followed by right pneumonectomy for lung cancer. Resuturing of the right main bronchial stump, endoscopic treatment, and repair using a latissimus dorsi muscle flap were not effective. Consequently we placed a modified Dumon stent in the carina, which effectively closed the stump.

In our previous work, we have presented an algorithm that extracts classification rules from trained neural networks and discussed its application to breast cancer diagnosis. In this paper, we describe how the accuracy of the networks and the accuracy of the rules extracted from them can be improved by a simple pre-processing of the data. Data pre-processing involves selecting the relevant input attributes and removing those samples with missing attribute values. The rules generated by our neural network rule extraction algorithm are more concise and accurate than those generated by other rule generating methods reported in the literature.

Testicular cancer remains a major success story in the realm of solid tumors. There are still many remaining challenges in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of long-term toxicity. Surgery and platinum-based chemotherapy, however, still encompass the main treatment modalities. Attempts to limit toxicity from both surgery and chemotherapy remain at the forefront of research. New chemotherapeutic options are available for patients with platinum-resistant disease, and stem cell transplant remains an area of active study.
