TITLE: Dental care for cancer patients: a survey of Texas dental school graduates.
PUBDATE: 19900601
A survey of recent Texas dental school graduates regarding their preparedness for addressing the oral health care needs of cancer patients in their practices suggests several trends. Many graduates (26%) do not feel adequately prepared to manage and provide oral care for cancer patients. Over 95% of the dentists surveyed expressed interest in locally sponsored continuing education courses on the oral health care of cancer patients. Clearly, both predoctoral and postdoctoral dental education must recognize the need for formalized instruction on the oral cre of cancer patients if general dentists are to provide high-quality, comprehensive dental care for these patients.

PUBDATE: 19910901
Sequential hemibody radiotherapy (SHBI) is currently being evaluated in clinical trials as adjuvant treatment in cancer patients who are potential long-term survivors. The potential late adverse effects of this therapeutic modality on the bone marrow may place patients at risk for the complications of aplasia, leukaemia, and myeloproliferative syndromes. We describe a case of acute non-lymphocytic leukaemia and myelofibrosis following SHBI for prostate carcinoma. The possible role of radiation in the induction of these abnormalities is discussed.

PUBDATE: 19931001
Massive obesity leads to nonspecific skin disorders. Skin folds are more numerous and deeper in the obese subject, and can become the site of various disorders. Hence the difficulty of diagnosis and treatment is increased. Acanthosis nigricans should be recognized, but not solely attributed to obesity, since other causes, particularly cancer, may be involved. Finally, leg ulcerations, a frequent consequence of the venous insufficiency inherent in obesity, should not lead to overlook other underlying causes, particularly in diabetic patients.

PUBDATE: 19900501
Cancer pain is a subjective, multidimensional experience that strongly influences quality of life of cancer patients. Although quality of life research has recognized the potential impact of pain, there is very little information about the relationship. Key components of cancer pain that may influence quality of life include severity, chronicity, the perceived availability of relief, the meaning of the pain in relation to the underlying disease, and the psychosocial disturbances attributable to the pain. Multidimensional assessment of both pain and quality of life is needed to characterize this relationship.

PUBDATE: 19910101
One hundred patients with advanced cancer referred to a palliative care service were evaluated for psychosocial distress using a standard questionnaire. A high incidence of emotional upset, financial distress, and home-care problems was found. Psychosocial distress is common among patients (and their families) with advanced cancer and may have a significant impact on provision of optimal care. Community services are often inadequate. A dedicated palliative care service employing a multidisciplinary approach can best provide care. We make specific recommendations about how to combat psychosocial distress using specific administrative and management techniques.

TITLE: A review and biological risk assessment of sodium saccharin.
PUBDATE: 19920601
Dietary sodium saccharin is associated with bladder tumors when fed at high levels to the male rat. Under these conditions urinary pH, sodium concentration, and volume are elevated and proliferative changes are present in the urothelium. Extensive epidemiological studies have shown that saccharin does not increase the risk of bladder cancer in humans and laboratory investigations have shown that sodium saccharin is not mutagenic and does not bind to DNA. Recent research indicates that the urothelium in male rats is damaged under conditions of high urinary pH and sodium levels by a mechanism that involves alpha 2u-globulin and possibly silicate crystalluria. These studies and their implications for human health risk are reviewed.

In a study of 31 breast cancer families and 12 breast-ovarian cancer families, we have obtained clear evidence of linkage to markers on chromosome 17q in the families with ovarian cancer (maximum lod score 3.34 at theta = .04) but only weak evidence in those without ovarian cancer. Recombinant events indicate that the gene lies between D17S588 and D17S250.

PUBDATE: 19910101
The value of post-myelographic spinal computer tomography (CT) was evaluated in cancer patients with spinal metastases causing complete myelographic block. In 22 out of 25 lumbar myelographies (88%) showing complete blockade, sufficient contrast medium had leaked proximally to allow determination of the cranial limit of the metastasis on the CT-scan. It is concluded that the post-myelographic spinal CT can replace a supplementary cervical myelography in the majority of patients with epidural metastasis, causing a complete myelographic block.

The chemotherapy of gastrointestinal malignancies remain mostly investigational, although several adjuvant protocols in colorectal cancer and anal cancer are beginning to be accepted as standards against which newer regimens are to be compared. Chemotherapy regimens are best understood and appreciated with a basic understanding of cancer biology, tumour cell kinetics, and drug toxicities. An appreciation of chemotherapy-induced toxicity and an awareness of their management will help the gastroenterologist be an active participant in the multidisciplinary team caring for the patient with gastrointestinal malignancies.

TITLE: Lack of c-erbB-2 oncoprotein expression in male breast carcinoma.
PUBDATE: 19911101
A series of 21 male breast carcinomas were immunostained using NCL-CB11, an antibody directed against the internal domain of the c-erbB-2 transmembrane oncoprotein. In contrast to female breast cancer, where up to 35% of cases show positivity, all of these cases were negative. This suggests that no prognostic information regarding patient survival can be made in these patients and that male breast carcinomas may be under different growth control mechanisms from female breast carcinomas.

TITLE: [Effect of cepharanthin on radiotherapy induced leukopenia]
PUBDATE: 19900401
Cepharanthin, a kind of alkaloid, has been reported to show a protective effect for leukopenia induced by radiation therapy. In this study, one of three kinds of drugs, Cepharanthin, S-Adchnon (adrenochrome derivative) and Hythiol (L-cysteine), was randomly administered to 94 patients with cancer of the head and neck, the uterine cervix and the lung, during the course of radiotherapy. When Cepharanthin was given, 81.3% of the patients were protected from leukopenia, compared with 51.6% in S-Adchnon and 32.3% in Hythiol. It is suggested that prophylactic use of Cepharanthin may be useful for cancer radiotherapy.

PUBDATE: 19900901
Retinoblastoma, the most common intraocular malignancy of children, has served as an important paradigm for understanding the events involved in neoplastic transformation. Much of the contemporary molecular description of human cancers stems directly from experimental approaches first developed to study this childhood tumour. This analytical methodology has demonstrated a major role for heritable predisposition in tumourigenesis, provided evidence for tissue pleiotropy of cancer genes, and revealed a more precise estimation of the number, activity, and location of other tumour suppressor loci.

1,122 uterine cancer patients above FIGO stage I a were treated at our hospital in the decade from 1980 to 1989. Total 69 patients diagnosed as recurrent cervical cancer had 82 lesions in 11 sites. The most frequent recurrent sites were uterus, vaginal stump and vaginal wall; the second sites were parametrium and pelvic wall. Radiotherapy and hyperthermia were done to patients with these lesions. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were used to patients with distant metastatic lesions to left supraclavicular lymph nodes and lung. But there has been no good results.

PUBDATE: 19930501
As the prognosis for children and adolescents with cancer improves, we must reconsider how we will provide care to the adolescents and young adults who have survived these conditions. On the premise that the global needs of adults are best served by health care obtained in the adult health-care system, the case is made for transition from pediatric to adult-oriented health care for adolescents and young adults with cancer. The benefits of transition, barriers to implementation, and models of care are discussed.
