TITLE: [Laparoscopic lymphadenectomy]
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: 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.

Other with some comprehensive cancer centers but confine to only big cities with poor coverage of the population resulting in a lot of late cases of cancer patients seen.

TITLE: The evolution of quality of life evaluations in cancer therapy.
PUBDATE: 19900501
Patients' feelings, psychological and functional status, and quality of life have often been regarded as unmeasurable subjective entities that cannot be scientifically studied. But now, with better measurement tools, the cancer patient's Quality of Life can be understood in more operational terms than the "soft" subjective statements that have too often characterized the field to date. This paper addresses the issue of Quality of Life from several perspectives: 1. Historical antecedents of the concept; 2. precipitating factors; 3. evolution of the concept; 4. historical development of the measures; and 5. applications of Quality of Life assessments, including implications for research, teaching, and clinical care.

PUBDATE: 19920101
The knowledge of prognostic factors such as TNM, performance status, and sex is essential for predicting patient outcome and optimal trial design and analysis. Recent advances in cytogenetics and molecular biology have yielded new prognostic factors such as DNA ploidy, oncogenes and oncogene product. New prognostic factors can predict patient outcome and should be incorporated for the multivariate analysis of prognostic factors. They can provide a guideline for selecting special patient population suitable for adjuvant chemotherapy even in the early stage of lung cancer.

Considerable progress has been achieved in immunology and the development of novel immunological intervention strategies. In this review some new concepts in immunology, and particularly the role played by T cells, are discussed: new ideas on the pathogenesis and possible treatment of autoimmune diseases, on the pathogenesis and immunological treatment of HIV infections, new approaches to transplantation, novel concepts in tumour immunology and cancer immunotherapy and the development of new (molecular) vaccines against infectious diseases. It is anticipated that these new concepts will lead to novel immunological drugs.

TITLE: Bone marrow transplantation.
PUBDATE: 19920901
Over the last 20 years allogeneic bone marrow transplantation from an HLA-identical sibling donor has become the treatment of choice for a number of human haematological malignancies, severe aplastic anaemia, some congenital diseases of the immune and haemopoietic systems, and some inborn errors of metabolism. Recently, the successful introduction of HLA-matched unrelated donor transplants, convenient T cell depletion technology, combination immunosuppressive therapy to minimise graft-versus-host disease, blood products that are seronegative for cytomegalovirus, effective antiviral agents, and cloned haemopoietic and immune system growth factors have markedly increased the scope of bone marrow transplantation. Additionally, autologous transplantation appears to have promise especially in lymphoma and breast cancer.

The authors report their initial results obtained by the use of transrectal sonography in examination of known or suspected rectal and perirectal masses. 42 patients were examined with commercially available endosonographic probes. 22 patients had known rectal cancer. 13 patients underwent surgical exploration. Malignant infiltration of perirectal fat were detected as accurately with US as with histology in 9 cases. Lymph node involvement was accurately identified in 11 cases. They recommend this new technique for the assessment of invasion of rectal tumours and lymph node involvement, for postoperative follow-up and for examination of benign diseases of the rectum.

PUBDATE: 19920801
The effects of OK-432 on artificial liver metastasis of tumor-bearing mice were assessed using murine colon adenocarcinoma MCA-38 in C57 BL/6 mice. OK-432 injection into the spleen reduced the liver metastases. In gastro-intestinal cancer patients, the effects of OK-432 injection into the spleen were assessed with functional T cell subsets. The treatment resulted in an increase in the number of cytotoxic T cells, but a decrease in the suppressor T cells. The facts suggested that OK-432 injection into the spleen had an ability to prevent liver metastases.

Antibody-labelled granulocytes, antigranulocyte antibodies and radiolabelled immunoglobulin can reliably visualize foci of infection; their use in urologic inflammatory disorders is rare. In the diagnosis of urologic tumours anti-CEA immunoscintigraphy of urinary bladder cancer seems to be superior to conventional imaging techniques in sensitivity and specificity. Experience with immunoscintigraphy in non-seminomatous germ cell tumours and prostate cancer are limited; immunoscintigraphy of renal cell cancer is still in the experimental stage in clinical medicine.

TITLE: Vulval reconstruction after cancer excision: the island groin flap technique.
PUBDATE: 19900301
Many current techniques for vulval reconstruction following cancer excision satisfy the basic requirements for restoration of urinary and sexual function but leave considerable scars on the thigh. We suggest the use of bilateral island groin flaps, which allow a good cosmetic and functional reconstruction with a minimal donor defect and more acceptable scars. This technique also allows good access to the inguinal, crural and iliac lymph nodes through the same incisions, avoiding other scars.
