TITLE: Head and neck cancer: detection of recurrence with three-dimensional principal components analysis at dynamic FDG PET.
PUBDATE: 19990701
Fully automated principal components analysis (PCA) was applied to dynamic 2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomographic (PET) images obtained in 15 patients with previously treated head and neck cancer. PCA with time-activity curves incorporated kinetic information about FDG uptake, which improved tissue characterization on FDG PET images. The combination of standardized uptake value and PCA image sets likely will improve the reliability of tumor detection in head and neck cancers.

TITLE: Immunomodulatory activity of small peptides.
PUBDATE: 19900901
The activity of the immune system can be modulated by a wide variety of natural and synthetic peptides. Here, Vassil St Georgiev summarizes the actions of some of the immunostimulatory and immunosuppressant small peptides that have shown most promise as therapeutic agents. Some are already in use as vaccine adjuvants or to prevent graft rejection. There are now indications that these peptides may also be of benefit in conditions in which the immune system is compromised, in autoimmune disease and in cancer.

PUBDATE: 19960401
We present a long-term survivor with isolated recurrent tumor in the incisional scar that developed 9 months after a curative resection for primary lung adenocarcinoma. She underwent an excision of the tumor followed by systemic chemotherapy, and is currently alive with no evidence of disease 69 months after the recurrence. Isolated incisional recurrence after complete resection of lung cancer is a rare phenomenon and may be curable using multimodal treatment.

TITLE: Insertion of Hickman catheters by the percutaneous technique.
PUBDATE: 19951201
Hickman catheters have previously been conventionally placed by surgical dissection. This usually performed by experienced surgeons and is carried out under general anaesthesia. We report our preliminary experience in Hickman catheter placement by percutaneous technique in twenty patients. We outline the implantation methods and complications encountered by this technique. The procedure is relatively simple provided the operator is skilled in central venous cannulation. The chief advantages are that the procedure can be done under local anaesthesia and results in less trauma compared with surgical dissection. Such an alternative in catheter insertion would promote wider usage of Hickman catheters in cancer patients.

TITLE: A panel of restriction fragment length polymorphisms for chromosomal band 11p13.
PUBDATE: 19900201
A panel of seven chromosome 11p13 restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) detected by five DNA probes is described. Two alleles were identified for each polymorphism, and Mendelian segregation of alleles was observed. Allele frequencies range from 0.13/0.87 to 0.44/0.56. This panel of 11p13 RFLPs will be useful for linkage studies investigating the role of 11p13 genes in Wilms' tumor, aniridia, and genitourinary anomalies. Additionally, these RFLPs will be important tools for studying tumor-specific 11p13 alterations in Wilms' tumor and other cancers.

PUBDATE: 20050901
Lymphangitic spread of metastases has distinct patterns on pulmonary scintigraphy and radiographic imaging. A 43-year-old woman with metastatic breast cancer presented with shortness of breath. Symptomatology was studied with ventilation and perfusion (V/Q) scintigraphy, chest radiograph, and computed tomography (CT). The scintigraphic pattern is consistent with prior descriptions of lymphangitic spread of tumor. The chest x-ray and CT were both performed within the prior 2 months and were confirmatory.

PUBDATE: 20030701
Yellow discoloration of the osteoid seams of the partly demineralised trabecular bone in the site of the osteolytic cancer metastasis was observed. Intralesional hemorrhage with massive breakdown of the red cells and local release of bilirubin caused characteristic colour changes of unmineralised osteoid. Mineralised osteoid had unchanged colour. No morphological changes of bone cells were recognised. Yellow osteoid developed as a result of local high bilirubin concentration in the neighbourhood of bone trabecullae with unmineralised osteoid seams.

TITLE: Lip cancer: important management issues.
PUBDATE: 20010201
Lip cancer should be diagnosed and treated at an early stage. It most often presents on the lower lip of middle-aged to elderly males. The aetiology is similar to non-melanoma skin cancer, that is, chronic sun exposure. Despite treatment, a proportion of patients will experience delayed relapse and one in 10 will die from lip cancer. Clinicians need to be aware of the natural history of this disease. Two cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the lip treated by radiotherapy are presented and discussed to highlight important aspects in the management of lip cancer.

PUBDATE: 20011201
Major advances in treatment for epithelial ovarian cancer have occurred over the last decade, giving hope to patients and families. Surgery remains a cornerstone of therapy. In early-stage epithelial ovarian cancer, a meticulous staging procedure should be performed to aid in determining patients who require appropriate adjuvant therapy and patients who can be monitored. The patient with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer significantly benefits from aggressive cytoreductive surgery and chemotherapy, affording the patient higher rates of complete response and partial response. In the new millenium, new therapeutic modalities should enhance the current response rates.

PUBDATE: 19900301
The use of different expressions of mortality in prostate cancer can lead to difficulty in comparing reported data. We have used different measures of mortality in the same group of 438 patients presenting consecutively with histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the prostate, in order to assess the values and deficiencies of each method. The use of expected and relative survival is shown to be valuable in allowing indirect but objective assessment of disease specific mortality in prostatic cancer.

TITLE: Detection of aneuploid subpopulations in colon cancer biopsies by cultivation in vitro prior to flow cytometric analysis.
PUBDATE: 19920801
Flow cytometry offers a relatively simple method to determine the DNA content of colorectal cancers. However, the technique can not discover minor changes in karyotype which may characterize near-diploid tumors, nor will it detect very small populations of aneuploid cells. In an attempt to improve the detection of such cells, we incubated biopsy material prior to analysis. This method revealed an aneuploid subpopulation in one of two biopsies studied. This simple protocol may ultimately lead to a more accurate assessment of the ploidy in colon cancer.

The Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) has performed a series of studies evaluating different aspects of remission induction and postremission treatment in adults with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). In recent years, these clinical trials have been supplemented by systematic morphologic, immunophenotyping, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic studies leading to the identification of different risk groups of patients who may warrant individualized treatments. These protocols have enrolled all adult patients older than 15 years with ALL, without an upper age restriction, and did not exclude Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome-positive patients.

The literature findings on endogenous hormonal profiles in women with breast cancer are reviewed in detail. It is concluded that four sets of findings are valid: (1) diminished adrenal androgen production, probably genetic, in women with premenopausal breast cancer; (2) ovarian dysfunction (luteal inadequacy plus increased testosterone production) in breast cancer at all ages; (3) increased 16 alpha-hydroxylation of estradiol in breast cancer at all ages; and (4) evidence that prolactin is a permissive risk factor for breast cancer, and that the pregnancy-induced decrease in prolactin levels may account for the protective effect of early pregnancy against breast cancer.

PUBDATE: 19990601
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease is a common and serious complication of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT). Its two most frequent manifestations are interstitial pneumonitis and gastroenteritis. We describe here the first reported case of CMV ovarian infection in an allo-SCT recipient. This patient was included in a clinical trial of high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) with HLA-matched peripheral SCT for metastatic breast cancer. She expired 53 days after transplantation from organ failure unrelated to her CMV oophoritis.
