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.

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: 20001201
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.

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.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer to metastasize to the eye. This is thought to be a rare occurrence but may be more common than thought. Two cases with eye metastases from breast cancer are presented to acquaint physicians with this entity. Other tumors that metastasize to the eye, the anatomic location of metastases in the eye, and the evaluation, treatment, and prognosis of breast cancer metastatic to the eye are discussed.

Most patients who present with testicular cancer are cured. Because this is a disease of predominantly young men, after curative therapy these men survive for many years. In other cancers, treatment-related disease has been noted to appear many years after successful therapy. Therefore, the question of whether or not therapy-related cancers occur in testicular cancer is especially pertinent.

PUBDATE: 20000901
Diamond-Blackfan anaemia (DBA) has had an intellectual allure for decades for clinical and experimental haematologists. The syndrome has a haematological phenotype of early-onset red-cell aplasia but is coupled with a baffling array of pleiotropy. There is discordance with modes of inheritance, physical anomalies, erythropoietic response to corticosteroid therapy, spontaneous 'remissions', and evolution to malignant myeloid transformation and to cancer. The recent discovery of two genes associated with DBA is the entry point for explaining the diversity of the phenotype and for understanding the molecular basis of the syndrome.

The experience of management of the patients with cancer of the uterus body was summarized to improve the results of combined (surgical and radiation) treatment. The essential initial disorders of the power supply metabolism, keeping worsening after the operation, were revealed. The conduction of the immune correction therapy in complex of preoperative preparation with individual selection of the immune preparations using the tests in vitro had promoted the postoperative period course improvement, the frequency of complications reduction, the stabilization and tendency for the power supply metabolism restoration after the operation and further during the radiation therapy conduction.

The field of viral vector targeting is advancing rapidly. Recent advances include the successful use of bifunctional crosslinkers to target adenoviral and retroviral vectors, elucidation of the crystal structures of an adenoviral and a retroviral receptor-binding domain, and definition of strategies for inserting short targeting peptides and larger polypeptide-binding domains into the coat proteins of a number of different viral vectors. Novel targeting strategies based on host range restriction and protease activation have been developed, targeted replication-competent vectors have shown promise as anti-cancer agents and the possibility of selecting targeted vectors from vector display libraries has been established.

TITLE: APC, signal transduction and genetic instability in colorectal cancer.
PUBDATE: 20011001
Colorectal cancer arises through a gradual series of histological changes, each of which is accompanied by a specific genetic alteration. In general, an intestinal cell needs to comply with two essential requirements to develop into a cancer: it must acquire selective advantage to allow for the initial clonal expansion, and genetic instability to allow for multiple hits in other genes that are responsible for tumour progression and malignant transformation. Inactivation of APC--the gene responsible for most cases of colorectal cancer--might fulfil both requirements.
