TITLE: Occupation and female papillary cancer of the thyroid.
PUBDATE: 19950301
This article presents the joint results of two Swedish case-control studies regarding occupational exposure and female papillary thyroid cancer. Questionnaires inquiring about lifetime occupations and specific occupational exposures were mailed to cases and controls, aged 20 to 70 years. Some 185 female papillary or mixed cancer cases and 426 female controls were included in the analysis. Increased risks were seen for women who had worked as a dentist/dental assistant, teacher, shoemaker, or warehouse worker. In addition, occupational contacts with undefined chemicals, x-rays, or video display terminals were indicated as risk factors.

TITLE: [Diffuse hyperthyroid goiter associated with occult papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. Report of 2 cases]
PUBDATE: 19940201
The association of diffuse hyperthyroid goiter and thyroid cancer is rare and interesting, considering that both diseases affect the same organ but have different pathogenesis and prognosis. We report two patients that consulted for diffuse hyperthyroid goiter and were subjected to a subtotal bilateral thyroidectomy due to antithyroid drug failure. Pathological study revealed the coexistence of diffuse gland hyperplasia and a papillary thyroid carcinoma of less than 7 mm phi. In both cases, the thyroid remanent was ablated with radioactive iodine during the postoperative period and thyroid substitution was started.

TITLE: Inpatient cervical screening: a survey of patient acceptability.
PUBDATE: 19950201
Offering Pap tests to hospital inpatients could increase cervical screening rates. A survey to examine the acceptability of this concept was conducted with female inpatients in a rural public hospital. A large majority reported that they would find hospital Pap tests acceptable. Acceptability was not related to Pap test status, attitudes, or knowledge of cervical cancer. This strategy may provide access to cervical screening for underscreened groups.

TITLE: [Evaluation of arterial infusion chemotherapy for advanced gallbladder cancer using implantable port]
PUBDATE: 19941101
Seven patients with advanced gallbladder cancer were treated by arterial infusion chemotherapy. Five patients had unresectable tumor, and two had liver metastases after resection of primary tumor. The response rate was 42.9% (3 PR), and the 1-year survival rate was 35.7%. No severe side effect was found. We conclude that arterial infusion chemotherapy is effective for advanced gallbladder cancer, and that a more effective regimen and adjuvant therapy should be established.

TITLE: [Treatment of recurrent gastric cancer]
PUBDATE: 19940801
The recurrence rate of resected gastric cancer was 31.9%. The rate was in creasingly higher in proportion to the lack of radicality. The most common type of recurrence was peritoneal dissemination, followed by hematogeneous metastasis, local recurrence, and distant lymph node metastasis. The treatments for recurrence were surgery (9.3%) and chemotherapy (16.1%). Systemic chemotherapy (intravenous iv) was common, and local chemotherapy (intraarterial ia, intraperitoneal ip) was rate. The efficacy of systemic chemotherapy (iv) for recurrent gastric cancer without local recurrence was suggested. The efficacy of local chemotherapy (ia) was suggested for peritoneal dissemination and local recurrence.

PUBDATE: 19961201
Avascular necrosis has long been recognized as a complication of glucorticoid therapy. With the recent recognition of paclitaxel's activity in advanced ovarian cancer, increasing attention has been focused on the concomitant use of corticosteroid premedication and its associated morbidities. This report describes avascular necrosis occurring in a patient receiving chemotherapy with corticosteroid medication for advanced recurrent ovarian cancer.

TITLE: [Costs and effects of alternative screening programs against cervical cancer]
PUBDATE: 19960801
This paper presents a framework for comparison of screening programme designs, based on efficiency and cost effectiveness criteria. Design parameters such as choice of screening interval and which population segments to screen are varied simultaneously. The costs and effects for a range of existing and hypothetical screening programmes for cervical cancer are estimated, using a mathematical simulation model. On the basis of these estimations incremental costs per life year are calculated for a range of programmes. Efficiency and cost effectiveness criteria indicate that extending screening programmes for cervical cancer beyond screening women in the age group 25-59 years every four years may not be optimal.

TITLE: Intracavitary radiotherapy boosting for nasopharynx cancer.
PUBDATE: 19970401
Intracavitary radiotherapy is conceptually an attractive method of boosting dose to nasopharynx cancer whilst sparing sensitive normal tissues. A high dose rate (HDR) microselectron can be used to deliver a brachytherapy boost conveniently, safely, comfortably and effectively. Following external radiotherapy a single outpatient treatment has been given to patients using the remote afterloading system of sources placed in modified paediatric endotracheal tubes. This has been associated with good primary control and no evidence of serious morbidity in eight patients. The main limitation of this method is restriction of its utilization to small volume primary disease.

P. F. Stevens (Clusiaceae). The structure elucidation and anti-HIV activity of calanolide E2 (4), cordatolide E (5), pseudocordatolide C (6), and calanolide F (9), along with a simple prenylated coumarin precursor (11), are described here.

OBJECTIVE: We describe for the first time (to our knowledge) the mammographic appearance of breast cancer and breast density in carriers of the breast cancer gene BRCA1. CONCLUSION: The mammographic appearance of breast cancer in BRCA1 carriers was similar to that in the general population. All mammographic densities were observed. Appropriate mammographic management of these extremely high-risk patients is yet to be determined.

Eccrine (sweat gland) carcinoma is a rare form of skin cancer that may be locally destructive. It is known to recur after resection and can metastasize to regional or distant lymph nodes. There have been two reported cases in association with patients immunocompromised as the result of organ transplantation (I. Penn: Prog Allergy. 37: 259, 1986). We report here the first case of sweat gland carcinoma in a patient infected with the human immunodeficiency virus.

PUBDATE: 19970401
Antiandrogens are combined with medical or surgical castration to achieve total androgen blockade in metastatic prostate cancer. Discontinuation of antiandrogens at disease progression has been associated with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) decrease, symptom improvement, and occasionally objective tumor regression. Two cases of metastatic prostate cancer demonstrating decrease in PSA of 92% and 56% on discontinuation of nilutamide therapy are reported. Improvement in urinary symptoms, bone pain and, in one, disappearance of para-aortic lymphadenopathy paralleled the PSA decrease. The duration of the withdrawal response of 6 months was comparable to those reported with discontinuation of flutamide.

PUBDATE: 19970801
We presented three patients with bilateral breast tumors (one with breast cancers, one with breast cancer and fibroadenoma, and one with fibroadenomas) examined by 99mTc-hexakis 2-methoxy-isobutylisonitrile (MIBI) scintimammography. In all cases 99mTc-MIBI uptake was recognized only in the breast cancers. 99mTc-MIBI scintimammography was useful in evaluating bilateral breast tumors since preoperative diagnosis is valuable in determining correct surgical treatment.

In a recent commentary, Infante et al. [1994] summarized some of the epidemiologic literature on the relationship between glass wool and lung cancer. They concluded that this material is carcinogenic for the lung in humans. A review of the commentary in comparison with the original papers covered reveals that their analysis was incomplete and characterized by selection bias. A more careful examination of the literature cited and other relevant publications shows that the data cited by Infante et al. are subject to the errors of chance and confounding and that the association when present is inconsistent, weak, and lacks a dose-response relationship. Therefore, a conclusion of causality cannot be justified.
