TITLE: [Symptoms of depression in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy]
PUBDATE: 19950301
Symptoms of depression and anxiety were measured in a prospective follow-up study of 36 cancer patients before and during chemotherapy by means of the Hamilton rating scales and the Melancholia Scale. These scales proved useful in the examined population. Moderate or severe depression was seen in almost half of the patients before chemotherapy, but this figure decreased during follow-up. The symptomatology resembled that of primary depression, and the brief rating scales for depression seemed suitable for screening purpose. Problems in identifying morbid states of anxiety and depression are discussed.

Primary adenocarcinoma of the bladder accounts for less than 2% of all bladder cancers. There is no report of such a case in a defunctionalized bladder. All reported cases of carcinoma in defunctionalized bladders were either squamous cell, signet ring cell, or transitional cell carcinoma, detected within an average of 5 years after urinary diversion, and all have been associated with chronic inflammation of the bladder. We report on 2 cases of adenocarcinoma that developed in defunctionalized bladders 30 and 8 years after ileal loop diversion for prune belly syndrome and neurogenic bladder, respectively.

PUBDATE: 19930901
The limitations of the diagnostic imaging methods in determining lymph node involvement in pelvic tumors (prostatic cancer) and the high incidence of false negatives in the intraoperative frozen biopsies done during open lymphadenectomy have prompted us to develop laparoscopic staging lymphadenectomy since November, 1990. The different imaging and invasive diagnostic methods are briefly analyzed in the present article. The laparoscopic lymphadenectomy procedure is described in detail and a summary of our series is presented.

TITLE: Early detection of pancreatic carcinoma.
PUBDATE: 20020201
The poor prognosis and late presentation of pancreatic cancer patients emphasize the importance of an effective early detection strategy for patients at risk of developing pancreatic cancer. In current practice, the use of CA 19-9 levels and imaging techniques is not optimal for detecting small pancreatic lesions. It is hoped that the understanding of genetic alterations in combination with the development of high-throughput sensitive techniques will lead to the rapid discovery of a panel of biomarkers that will save lives by enabling aggressive therapy at the time when tumors are curable.

TITLE: Cancer in rodents: does it tell us about cancer in humans?
PUBDATE: 20051001
Information obtained from animal models (mostly mice and rats) has contributed substantially to the development of treatments for human cancers. However, important interspecies differences have to be taken into account when considering the mechanisms of cancer development and extrapolating the results from mice to humans. Comparative studies of cancer in humans and animal models mostly focus on genetic factors. This review discusses the bio-epidemiological aspects of cancer manifestation in humans and rodents that have been underrepresented in the literature.

TITLE: First two years of a follow-up breast clinic led by a nurse practitioner.
PUBDATE: 19970501
After special training a nurse practitioner ran an independent clinic for follow-up patients with breast disease. All patients referred to a single surgical firm with breast cancer and most patients with benign disease who required follow-up were included. In the first 2 years of the service 382 clinic visits were recorded (median 5/clinic, range 1-12). The nurse practitioner reviewed 236 (62%) patients alone but involved the consultant surgeon in the remainder. No significant lesion was missed in these patients. The nurse-led clinic is popular with patients and, subject to careful supervision, offers an attractive option for follow-up of patients with breast disease.

TITLE: Intensive care in the treatment of cancer patients.
PUBDATE: 19910801
Intensive care has been important in the treatment of cancer patients during the last decade. The main indications for admission to the intensive care unit are postoperative recovery, critical complications of cancer and its treatment, intensive anticancer treatment administration monitoring, and acute disease unrelated to the neoplastic disease or its treatment. Management of such cases must take into account the patient's fragility resulting from the presence of a severe chronic underlying disease with systemic effects. In the future, intensive care may play an important role in the development of oncology not only as supportive care for patients but also in the active development of new anticancer therapies.

PUBDATE: 19981001
Work reported over the past year has provided insights into the mechanisms whereby ligand activation of the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) regulates systemic glucose and lipid homeostasis. PPARgamma has also been implicated recently in the biology of monocytes and in cell-cycle regulation and cancer. Polyunsaturated fatty acids and eicosanoids bind and activate PPARgamma, suggesting that these lipids may serve as hormonal regulators of a variety of biological processes.

This is the first case of multiple minute digitate hyperkeratoses in an Asian country as well as the third report of the disorder after irradiation. The characteristic eruption, the consistent trigger of irradiation and its occurrence in patients of different racial groups indicate that multiple minute digitate hyperkeratoses are a distinct clinical entity.

TITLE: Radiation therapy of the older patient.
PUBDATE: 20000201
Radiotherapy has a major role in the multidisciplinary approach to cancer therapy. It is widely used for curative and palliative treatment of cancer involving various sites. Radiotherapy is of particular benefit to older and frail cancer patients as an alternative to surgery and to systemic therapy. The available data on the sensitivity of normal tissues to radiotherapy in elderly patients strongly suggest that older patients with good functional status tolerate radiotherapy as well as younger patients and have comparable tumor response and survival rates. Aggressive radiotherapy should not be withheld from older patients because of chronological age alone.
