PUBDATE: 19911201
A study is presented of 51 patients (age 52-77 years) suffering of uterine body cancer with marked extragenital pathology. It is shown that treatment of inoperable cancer of the uterine body using the SELECTRON apparatus for contact irradiation (cesium-137 source, 066-MEV photons). With this method exact dose control is possible. The preferred regime of dose fractionation in intracavitary radiation of endometrium cancer is a single dose of 1000 cGr weekly and a summary dose of 7000-8000 cGr.

PUBDATE: 19910601
Pickled vegetables are daily food consumed in the high-risk areas for esophageal cancer in China. We analyzed the nitrosamine content of Linxian pickles by GC/TEA and found that trace amounts of six nitrosamines (NDMA, NDEA, NMBA, NMAMBA, NDPA, NPYR) were present, with the highest concentrations being NDMA and NDEA (1.7 and 1.9 micrograms/kg wet weight respectively). The average level of nitrosamine precursors, such as nitrate (111.22 mg/L), nitrite (0.152 mg/L) and secondary amines (4.223 mg/L), in pickled vegetables were determined, and their pH values ranged from 3 to 5.

TITLE: Cystic disease and fibroadenoma of the breast: natural history and relation to breast cancer risk.
PUBDATE: 19910401
Approximately 25% of all 'discrete' breast lesions are fibroadenomas or breast cysts and they more commonly cause a breast lump than breast cancer. Despite their frequency, their natural history and relationship to subsequent breast cancer have not been clearly defined, although it would appear that palpable breast cysts, but not fibroadenomas, are associated with some increased risk of breast cancer. The diagnosis of these two entities is now possible by fine needle aspiration and excision of these lesions is only indicated in certain circumstances.

Dexon Mesh (Davis & Geck, Sugarland, TX) was used to partition the abdomen after incomplete resection of a locally advanced left colon cancer. Following surgery, external beam radiotherapy was delivered to the left flank without the risk of radiation enteritis. The technique of abdominal partitioning using Dexon Mesh is described.

TITLE: Staging and prognostic factors in nonseminomatous testicular cancer.
PUBDATE: 19911201
Staging of nonseminomatous testicular cancers, as with other tumors, renders important prognostic information and is necessary for making appropriate treatment recommendations. There is no universally accepted staging system for testis cancer, however. Despite the lack of uniformity, most of the staging systems in use today are capable of segregating patients into a "good-risk" or "poor-risk" category. The former group experiences cure less frequently and are appropriate candidates for investigational treatment. Tumor bulk is the most important prognostic factor in virtually all staging systems.

TITLE: Heart disease after mediastinal radiotherapy.
PUBDATE: 19920201
The greatest risk for most cancer patients is inadequate treatment of their disease. Although mediastinal radiotherapy is a safer procedure than it was 20 years ago, it still may damage the thoracic viscera, including the heart. Cardiovascular problems tend to present subtly years later, when the patient may not recall the prior radiation or may not deem it significant. An awareness of this long latency period and of the wide spectrum of heart disease that may result from radiotherapy is essential for management of these patients.

PUBDATE: 19911201
Several abdomino-Pelvic surgical procedures can cause ejaculatory failure or impotence. Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testis cancer is followed by loss of ejaculation if bilateral. In low stage cancers, monolateral procedure is associated with maintenance of ejaculation in most patients. Evaluation of seminal fluid before surgery is essential for cryopreservation and artificial insemination erectile impotence is consequent to section of "nervi erigentes" in pelvic surgery for cancer. Careful anatomic dissection can spare these nerves but oncologic radicality should be always kept in mind.

PUBDATE: 19920301
A total of 7 patients with clinical stage C prostate cancer determined by digital rectal examination, transrectal ultrasonography, radionuclide bone scanning and serum prostatic acid phosphatase determination was treated with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogues for 2 to 5 months in an attempt to downstage the disease. Although substantial decreases in prostate specific antigen level and prostatic volume occurred, only 2 patients experienced pathological downstaging of disease. We conclude that luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone therapy for downstaging of clinical stage C prostatic cancer is of limited value.

There are many new approaches to cancer treatment emerging as a result of improvements in our understanding of tumor biology and the host response to cancer. At this time, none of these new approaches are sufficiently active or well developed to replace or improve upon standard combination chemotherapy in the management of patients with lymphoma.

In 1989 an increased risk of cancer, with a higher than expected incidence of brain tumours, was reported in laboratory workers at the Pasteur Institute, Paris. Three cases of primary brain tumours occurring in three laboratory workers from one laboratory in a district general hospital also came to light. Although this may have been due to coincidence or geographic clustering, the need for stringent safety standards in all laboratories is reiterated, and it is proposed that a national register should be established to record the causes of death in laboratory workers.

The use of smokeless forms of tobacco, such as snuff and chewing tobacco, is growing at alarming rates. The largest group of smokeless-tobacco users includes adolescent and young adult males. The health consequences related to smokeless-tobacco use include cancer of the oral mucosa and other sites, the potential for accelerated cardiovascular disease, and stress to the unborn infants of female users. This article provides background information about the problem and offers suggestions for interventions.

PUBDATE: 19931201
To determine the relation between genetic factor and lung cancer We selected 370 lung cancer probands in Xuanwei county, Yunan Province China. The data on 370 nuclear families were analysed. The segregation ratio of lung cancer was 0.15 and the genetic model of lung cancer belonged to polygenetics. The heritability of lung cancer was 24.6%, 14.6% for male and 37.8% for female. It is concluded that genetic factor is one of the risk factors for lung cancer is specially of importance for females, but it is not a main risk factor for lung cancer. Our results are helpful in complaining the high incidence of lung cancer in females in Xuanwei county.

TITLE: Periodontal space: a major route to bone involvement in oral cancer.
PUBDATE: 19910101
Oral cancers are presumed to involve mandible or maxilla by direct invasion and destruction of periosteum and underlying bone. In countries where there is a high incidence of oral cancers, most patients have poor dental hygiene and chronic periodontitis. We hypothesize that in such situations spread through the periodontal space is the major route to bone. We suggest that micro and macroscopic examination of the root surface can identify this and that this has to be done for proper 'T' grouping of tumours.
