Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.
Neoplasms containing cyst-like formations or producing mucin or serum.
Tumors or cancer of the SKIN.
Two or more abnormal growths of tissue occurring simultaneously and presumed to be of separate origin. The neoplasms may be histologically the same or different, and may be found in the same or different sites.
Tumors or cancers of the KIDNEY.
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
An adenocarcinoma producing mucin in significant amounts. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Tumors or cancer of the THYROID GLAND.

A vascular anomaly that is a collection of tortuous BLOOD VESSELS and connective tissue. This tumor-like mass with the large vascular space is filled with blood and usually appears as a strawberry-like lesion in the subcutaneous areas of the face, extremities, or other regions of the body including the central nervous system.
The use of hormonal agents with estrogen-like activity in postmenopausal or other estrogen-deficient women to alleviate effects of hormone deficiency, such as vasomotor symptoms, DYSPAREUNIA, and progressive development of OSTEOPOROSIS. This may also include the use of progestational agents in combination therapy.

Pathological processes of the UTERINE CERVIX.
A family of small, non-enveloped DNA viruses infecting birds and most mammals, especially humans. They are grouped into multiple genera, but the viruses are highly host-species specific and tissue-restricted. They are commonly divided into hundreds of papillomavirus "types", each with specific gene function and gene control regions, despite sequence homology. Human papillomaviruses are found in the genera ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; BETAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; GAMMAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; and MUPAPILLOMAVIRUS.
Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent PAPILLOMAVIRUS INFECTIONS. Human vaccines are intended to reduce the incidence of UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS, so they are sometimes considered a type of CANCER VACCINES. They are often composed of CAPSID PROTEINS, especially L1 protein, from various types of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS.
A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)
Liquid material found in epithelial-lined closed cavities or sacs.
A malignant neoplasm derived from glandular epithelium, in which cystic accumulations of retained secretions are formed. The neoplastic cells manifest varying degrees of anaplasia and invasiveness, and local extension and metastases occur. Cystadenocarcinomas develop frequently in the ovaries, where pseudomucinous and serous types are recognized. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.
A pharmaceutical preparation containing a mixture of water-soluble, conjugated estrogens derived wholly or in part from URINE of pregnant mares or synthetically from ESTRONE and EQUILIN. It contains a sodium-salt mixture of estrone sulfate (52-62%) and equilin sulfate (22-30%) with a total of the two between 80-88%. Other concomitant conjugates include 17-alpha-dihydroequilin, 17-alpha-estradiol, and 17-beta-dihydroequilin. The potency of the preparation is expressed in terms of an equivalent quantity of sodium estrone sulfate.
Compounds that interact with ESTROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of ESTRADIOL. Estrogens stimulate the female reproductive organs, and the development of secondary female SEX CHARACTERISTICS. Estrogenic chemicals include natural, synthetic, steroidal, or non-steroidal compounds.
A synthetic progestin that is derived from 17-hydroxyprogesterone. It is a long-acting contraceptive that is effective both orally or by intramuscular injection and has also been used to treat breast and endometrial neoplasms.
The last menstrual period. Permanent cessation of menses (MENSTRUATION) is usually defined after 6 to 12 months of AMENORRHEA in a woman over 45 years of age. In the United States, menopause generally occurs in women between 48 and 55 years of age.
The physiological period following the MENOPAUSE, the permanent cessation of the menstrual life.
The 17-beta-isomer of estradiol, an aromatized C18 steroid with hydroxyl group at 3-beta- and 17-beta-position. Estradiol-17-beta is the most potent form of mammalian estrogenic steroids.

Role of dexamethasone dosage in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists for prophylaxis of acute chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. (1/459)

Dexamethasone (20 mg) or its equivalent in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists appears to be the gold-standard dose for antiemetic prophylaxis. Additional to concerns about the use of corticosteroids with respect to enhanced tumour growth or impaired killing of the tumour cells, there is evidence that high-dosage dexamethasone impairs the control of delayed nausea and emesis, whereas lower doses appear more beneficial. To come closer to the most adequate dose, we started a prospective, single-blind, randomized trial investigating additional dosage of 8 or 20 mg dexamethasone to tropisetron (Navoban), a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, in cis-platinum-containing chemotherapy. After an interim analysis of 121 courses of chemotherapy in 69 patients, we have been unable to detect major differences between both treatment alternatives. High-dose dexamethasone (20 mg) had no advantage over medium-dose dexamethasone with respect to objective and subjective parameters of acute and delayed nausea and vomiting. In relation to concerns about the use of corticosteroids in non-haematological cancer chemotherapy, we suggest that 8 mg or its equivalent should be used in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists until further research proves otherwise.  (+info)

Morphological variations in transplanted tumors developed by inoculation of spontaneous mesothelioma cell lines derived from F344 rats. (2/459)

Morphological and immunohistochemical features of the abdominal mesotheliomas that were developed by inoculation of 3 cell lines (MeET-4, -5 and -6) established from spontaneous abdominal mesotheliomas in male F344 rats. Although the original tumors of three cell lines showed signs of epithelioid growth with a predominantly simple papillary pattern, transplanted tumors revealed a variety of morphologic features including epithelioid with glandular structures, sarcomatous, and a mixture of these components. All tumor cells of transplanted tumors were positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA) but almost negative for desmin as were epithelioid cells of the original tumors, and the cell lines were positive for desmin but not for ASMA. These results suggested that mesothelioma in the F344 rat had the potential for wide spectrum differentiation under in vitro conditions. The microenvironmental factors obtained in vivo can modify their potential ability and their morphological aspects. These factors may be related to tumor cell reexpression of ASMA of tumor cells that were masked under in vitro culture conditions.  (+info)

Additional value of whole-body positron emission tomography with fluorine-18-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose in recurrent colorectal cancer. (3/459)

PURPOSE: To assess the additional value of the whole-body [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scan as a staging modality complementing conventional diagnostic methods (CDM) in patients suspected of having recurrent colorectal adenocarcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 103 patients, the discordances between FDG-PET and CDM results were identified and related to the final diagnosis obtained by histopathology or clinical follow-up (> 1 year). All FDG-PET studies were reviewed with full knowledge of the CDM findings. RESULTS: In a region-based analysis, discordances between CDM and FDG-PET findings were found in 40 of 412 regions (10%). In these, FDG-PET had additional diagnostic value in 14 of 16 locoregional, six of seven hepatic, seven of eight abdominal, and eight of nine extra-abdominal regions. In a patient-based analysis, CDM categorized a subgroup of 60 patients as having resectable recurrent disease limited to the liver (n = 37) or locoregional region (n = 23). In 13 of these patients, there were discordant FDG-PET findings, detecting additional tumor sites in nine patients and excluding disease in three patients and yielding an additional diagnostic value in 20% of the patients. A second subgroup consisted of 13 patients with inconclusive CDM findings (n = 5) or with elevated plasma carcinoembryonic antigen levels and an otherwise negative conventional work-up (n = 8). In these patients, FDG-PET results were correct in eight of nine discordances, yielding a positive additional diagnostic value in 62% of the patients. CONCLUSION: Whole-body FDG-PET can have a clear impact on the therapeutic management in the follow-up of patients with colorectal cancer.  (+info)

Treatment of upper abdominal malignancies with organ cluster procedures. (4/459)

Upper abdominal exenteration for upper abdominal malignancies was carried out in 15 patients with removal of the liver, spleen, pancreas, duodendum, all or part of the stomach, proximal jejunum and ascending and transverse colon. Organ replacement was with the liver, pancreas and duodenum plus, in some cases, a short segment of jejunum. Eleven of the 15 patients survived for more than 4 months; 2 died, after 61/2 and 10 months, of recurrent tumor. Of the 9 patients who are surviving after 61/2 to 14 months, recurrent tumor is suspected in only 1 and proven in none. Four patients with sarcomas and carcinoid tumors (2 each) have had no recurrences. The other 5 survivors had duct cell cancers (3 examples), a cholangiocarcinoma (1 example), and a hepatoma (1 example). The experience so far supports further cautious trials with this drastic cancer operation.  (+info)

Sonographically guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of abdominal lymph nodes: experience in 102 patients. (5/459)

We present our experience with sonographically guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes in 102 patients. The biopsied lymph nodes measured 1 to 6 cm (mean, 2.3 cm) and were located at the porta hepatis (n = 23), in the peripancreatic (n = 31), paraaortic (n = 22), aortocaval (n = 1), common iliac (n = 3), or external iliac (n = 6) regions, or in the mesentery (n = 16). Material sufficient for cytologic analysis was obtained in 87 (85.2%) of the 102 patients. The cytologic diagnosis in these patients included malignancy in 47 patients, tuberculosis in 28 patients, reactive lymphoid hyperplasia in 10 patients, and aspergillosis in two patients. In the other 15 patients, fine needle aspiration biopsy could not provide a definitive diagnosis. No major or minor complications occurred in our study. Thus, sonographic guidance is an effective alternative to computed tomography for biopsy of abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes.  (+info)

Biological effects of vinyl chloride: an experimental study. (6/459)

Plasma activities of alkaline phosphatase, (AP), transaminases and total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) with isoenzymes were determined in mice inhaling 50 and 550 ppm vinyl chloride (VC). The animals were also autopsied and the tissue pathology was studies. The total LDH activity was elevanted in both dose groups along with a shift to cathodic enzymes. AP was increased in animals exposed to 500 ppm and transaminases were not at all changed. Enzyme changes occurred after the appearance of tumors. Alveologenic adenomas occurred in all animals at the higher dosage and in about half of the animals inhaling the lower dose. Subperitoneal and subcutaneous hemangiosarcomas were frequent in both dose groups; but especially among 50 ppm animals. Only one animal had a hemangiosarcoma of the liver. No liver fibrosis was seen. All primary subperitoneal and subcutaneous tumors were located in fat tissue. Telangiectasis was observed in two animals in the 500 ppm series. The importance of blood vessel changes in the toxicology of vinyl chloride is discussed.  (+info)

A pathologic study of abdominal lymphangiomas. (7/459)

Abdominal lymphangiomas are uncommon angiomatous tumor occurring mainly in childhood. This is a retrospective clinicopathologic study of 17 cases of abdominal lymphangioma. The patients included are five children and 12 adults, with a mean age at initial presentation of 30.7 years (age ranges 3-63). The locations of the tumors were mesentery (5), retroperitoneum (4), colon (3), omentum (3), mesocolon (1) and gallbladder (1). Infiltrative growth was more common pattern than entirely circumscribed pattern. Masses were mostly multilocular cysts and contained chyle or serous fluid. On immunohistochemical staining, 16 cases were reactive for either CD31 or factor VIII-related antigen. These fact would suggest that intra-abdominal lymphangiomas simulate the immunohistochemical features of collecting lymphatics. Follow up was possible in 12 cases for 3-50 months (mean 19 months) and only one patient showed local recurrence. Although abdominal lymphangiomas are rare in adulthood and correct preoperative diagnosis is difficult, awareness of such a possibility in adulthood will contribute to make a correct preoperative diagnosis.  (+info)

The potential of gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity. (8/459)

Gene therapy is a promising new treatment modality based on molecular genetic modification to achieve a therapeutic benefit. We believe that gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity holds considerable promise, and we describe strategies by which genetic modification can be used to treat a variety of disease states or conditions. First, we can envision a strategy, based on genetic modification of the peritoneal membrane, to improve the practice of peritoneal dialysis through the production of proteins that would be of therapeutic value in preventing membrane damage and in preserving or enhancing its function as a dialyzing membrane. Second, the membrane could be genetically modified for either local or systemic delivery of therapeutic proteins. This approach could be applied to a variety of pathologies or conditions that require either sustained or transient delivery of therapeutic proteins, such as enzymes or growth factors. Third, gene transfer has already been incorporated into several strategies for the treatment of intra-abdominal carcinomas, and it has been effective in animal models of ovarian and bladder cancer and of peritoneal mesothelioma. Finally, gene transfer can be a valuable tool in increasing our understanding of the biology of the peritoneal membrane. By being able to manipulate the expression of specific genes through gene transfer, their role in various (patho)physiological processes can be identified. In summary, gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity has significant potential to address a variety of diseases or pathophysiological conditions, and to further our knowledge of peritoneal cavity biology.  (+info)

Causes of Abdominal Tumor. Infection by Helicobacter pylori is believed to be the cause of most abdominal tumor while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels. Its also states that diet plays no role in the genesis of abdominal tumor. However, there is some research done listed down the following dietary risks, and protective factors, for abdominal tumor: smoked foods, salted fish and meat, and pickled vegetables (appear to increase the risk of stomach cancer.) Nitrates and nitrites are substances commonly found in cured meats. They can be converted by certain bacteria, such as H. pylori, into compounds that have been found to cause stomach cancer in animals. On the other hand, eating fresh fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidant vitamins (such as A and C) appears to lower the risk of abdominal tumor.. In more detail, H. pylori is the main risk factor in 65-80% of abdominal tumor, but in only 2% of such ...

A mouse gastric cancer model is an important tool for studying the mechanisms of gastric cancer. To establish subcutaneously implanted tumors, MKN-45 cell suspensions and tumor tissues were implanted into the middle of the right armpit of nude mice. To generate an abdominal metastasis model, MKN-45 cell suspensions and tumor tissue homogenates were implanted into the middle of the lower abdomen. We measured the weights of the nude mice and the longest dimension, shortest dimension, thickness, and volume of the tumor. We also analyzed the rate of tumor formation, the time required for tumor formation, and the number and size of abdominal tumors in the mice. The rates of formation of the subcutaneously implanted tumors were 100%, 0%, and 100% in the nude mice inoculated with 2 × 10|sup|7|/sup| cells/mL or 1 × 10|sup|7|/sup| cells/mL of the MKN-45 cell suspension or the tumor tissue homogenate (2 × 10|sup|7|/sup| cells/mL),

Editor,-The purpose of this preliminary childhood population based study was to evaluate the use of abdominal ultrasound examination to determine the incidence of abdominal tumours and to investigate the possibility of early diagnosis of these tumours at a preclinical stage.. This study in general population is very difficult because of organisational problems and high cost. Therefore, we studied children under 1 year of age who were referred by their paediatricians, for another reason, to an ultrasonography centre in order to have an ultrasound examination. The most common reasons for referral were the investigation of the urinary tract after a urinary tract infection and the investigation of vomiting for possible gastro-oesophageal reflux. The study was initiated on January 1992, when we asked the radiologists of this centre to examine the whole abdomen of the referred children. In a five year period (January 1992 to December 1996) 7500 infants were examined. None of these children had ...

Pathways of lymph node involvement in upper abdominal malignancies: evaluation with high-resolution CT.: The aim of this study was to enhance our understanding
A 44-year-old woman presented with a tumorous mass on the right hypochondrium, however, no clear tumor was detected. One year later she was found to have an abdominal tumor. Upon surgery, the abdominal tumor was identified as a pedunculated hepatoma arising from the right hepatic lobe and was resected radically. Two years later, the hepatoma recurred as very rare remote metastases to the lung, brain and gingiva, and the patient died of respiratory failure. Autopsy showed no local recurrence in the liver, but remote metastases were present in the lung, brain and lymph nodes. The gingival tumor had disappeared following irradiation therapy.

Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, biologically aggressive soft tissue neoplasm of uncertain differentiation, most often arising in the abdominal and pelvic cavities of adolescents and young adults with a striking male predominance. Histologically, it is characterized by islands of uniform small round cells in prominent desmoplastic stroma, and it has a polyimmunophenotypic profile, typically expressing WT1 and cytokeratin, desmin, and neural/neuroendocrine differentiation markers to varying degrees. Tumors at other sites and with variant morphology are more rarely described. DSRCT is associated with a recurrent t(11;22)(p13;q12) translocation, leading to the characteristic EWSR1-WT1 gene fusion. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), to detect EWSR1 rearrangement, and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to assess for EWSR1-WT1 fusion transcripts are routine diagnostic ancillary tools. We present a large institutional comparative series of FISH and ...
Desmoplastic small round cell tumour (DSRCT) is a rare sarcoma typically affecting young males and usually widely metastatic at presentation. Despite multimodal treatment approaches, the prognosis for DSRCT is extremely poor. Alkylator- and anthracyclines- based regimens are widely used as therapy and an initial response is common. Durable responses are exceptionally rare so further systemic treatment options for these patients represent an unmet medical need. We report two cases of metastatic, pretreated DSRCT patients achieving disease stabilisation with Trabectedin. Retrospective review of 2 patients with progressive DSRCT, treated with Trabectedin. Two males aged 19 and 23 years treated with Trabectedin, 1.5 mg/m2 over 24 hours 3 weekly for 6 and 5 cycles respectively. Best responses were stable disease in patient 1 and partial response (RECIST 1.1) in patient 2. Progression free survival was 4 months in both cases. Persistent neutropenia required 4 weekly administration in one patient but no other

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare abdominal tumors which arise from the interstitial cells of Cajal in the gastrointestinal tract. Gastric GISTs are the most commonly seen GIST tumors and may grow to a very large size. They are often associated with abdominal pain, anorexia and weight loss. Most of them can be detected by CT. These tumors have been found to harbor mutations in CD117 which causes constitutional activation of the tyrosine kinase signaling pathway and is considered to be pathognomic. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib have revolutionized the treatment of these tumors, which are otherwise resistant to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment, tyrosine kinase inhibitors have been useful in prolonging the recurrence-free survival of these patients. Resistance to imatinib has been reported in GISTs with specific mutations. We present a case of gastric GIST which grew to a very large size and was ...
DSRCT happens to be a particularly aggressive form of cancer. As mentioned, its five year survival rate is less than fifteen percent. There is no standard therapeutic course recommended for DSRCT because no one method has shown a clear superiority to others.. Typically DSRCT is treated through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and sometimes stem cell transplantation. Recently molecular targeted therapy has been attempted as well.. Surgery is invasive, and involves excision of the omentum, a splenectomy and lymph node resections. Because the tumor is so invasive, it is rarely possible to achieve the ideal - complete excision with wide surgical margins.. Chemotherapy more often than not is ineffective in treating DSRCT. Although these tumors are sensitive to the chemotherapy, almost all patients relapse. This is probably because there are certain cells (sometimes called cancer stem cells) that are particularly resistant to chemotherapy and/or radiation, and these are the cells that tend to ...

The Effect of Anesthetic Technique on Cardiac Troponin-T and Systemic Inflammatory Response after Major Abdominal Cancer Surgery Abstract.
The most common of such causes is malignant neoplasia (eighty% of scenarios in a single research) and the majority of People conditions are hemangiosarcoma (88%). More malignant tumors can involve mesothelioma, pheochromocytoma and hepatic metastasis from other abdominal malignancies. The most common non-malignant cause is actually a ruptured splenic hematoma which in fact has a great prognosis with splenectomy alone. Homeowners should typically make immediate selections with regards to stabilization, treatment and surgery for their pet. Consequently, it is vital to inform homeowners of your likelihood of their pet acquiring malignant neoplasia along with the treatment alternatives in addition to the overall weak prognosis related with hemangiosarcoma (HSA ...

Wilms tumor, or nephroblastoma, is the most common childhood abdominal malignancy. The median age at diagnosis of Wilms tumor is approximately 3.
Health problems attributed to the IVC are most often associated with it being compressed (ruptures are rare because it has a low intraluminal pressure). Typical sources of external pressure are an enlarged aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm), the gravid uterus (aortocaval compression syndrome) and abdominal malignancies, such as colorectal cancer, renal cell carcinoma and ovarian cancer. Since the inferior vena cava is primarily a right-sided structure, unconscious pregnant females should be turned on to their left side (the recovery position), to relieve pressure on it and facilitate venous return. In rare cases, straining associated with defecation can lead to restricted blood flow through the IVC and result in syncope (fainting).[1] Occlusion of the IVC is rare, but considered life-threatening and is an emergency. It is associated with deep vein thrombosis, IVC filters, liver transplantation and instrumentation (e.g. catheter in the femoral vein).[2] ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Mutational spectrum of K-ras oncogene among Indian patients with gallbladder cancer. AU - Singh, Mahendra Kumar. AU - Chetri, Kamal. AU - Pandey, Udai Bhan. AU - Kapoor, Vinay Kumar. AU - Mittal, Balraj. AU - Choudhuri, Gourdas. PY - 2004/8. Y1 - 2004/8. N2 - Background and Aim: Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is a common abdominal malignancy in India with an obscure etiology. However, long-standing stones and chronic infection in gallbladder have been suspected as possible etiologic factors. As carcinogenesis complicating chronic inflammation proceeds through the stages of dysplasia and metaplasia, mutation in the K-ras gene may be an important marker for GBC. The aim of the present study was to detect K-ras mutation in cytological smears from GBC. Methods: Malignant cells were marked on slides of cytological smears obtained from 39 patients with cytologically proven GBC. Marked cells were scraped off and DNA was extracted. Polymerase chain reaction coupled with restriction fragment ...
BACKGROUND. Adrenal tumors are uncommon in dogs and very rare in cats. Adrenocortical tumors and pheochromocytoma are the most common adrenal tumors. Adrenocortical tumors cause hyperadrenocorticism (or Cushings disease). Pheochromocytomas can be an incidental finding or produce various non-specific signs because of the release of catecholamines. Both types of adrenal tumors can invade into the adjacent caudal vena cava (major abdominal vein) and kidney. Metastasis is uncommon.. DIAGNOSIS. Diagnosis of adrenal tumors can be difficult. Screening tests (such as urine cortisol-to-creatinine ratio, low-dose dexamethasone suppression test, and ACTH stimulation test) can confirm the diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism and differentiate whether a pituitary or adrenal tumor is responsible for causing clinical signs. Abdominal ultrasound is necessary to document the presence of an adrenal mass. Ultrasound, contrast vascular radiographs, or CT scans may be necessary to determine invasion of the tumor into ...

Introduction. Wilms tumour (nephroblastoma) is the second most common intra-abdominal tumour presenting during childhood, with approximately 80% of cases diagnosed before the age of 5 years.1 Advances in treatment have greatly improved the prognosis for children with this condition. Where survival rates were once less than 30%, they are currently quoted at 90%, making it one of the success stories of modern medicine.2. Nephroblastomas metastasise predominantly to the lungs (58%) and liver (29%), and only rarely to other sites such as the skeleton, mediastinum and brain. Most relapses (90%) occur within 4 years of diagnosis.3 The practice of post-treatment surveillance imaging is aimed at the early detection of tumour recurrence, thereby enabling early salvage therapy. Long-term survival following salvage therapy has reportedly increased from below 30% in the mid-1980s, to the current range of 50% - 60%.4. Recommendations for post-treatment surveillance imaging of patients with Wilms tumour that ...
Sixteen children and young adults were treated with high-dose cyclosporin combined with a combination of cytotoxics (epirubicin, vincristine and etoposide) (EVE) known to be influenced by P-glycoprotein-mediated multidrug resistance (MDR). Tumour types were neuroblastoma 3, Ewings sarcoma 2, rhabdomyosarcoma 5, osteosarcoma 3, desmoplastic small round cell tumour 1, nephroblastoma 1, T-acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) 1. All had progressed or relapsed following at least two of the drug types included in EVE. Acute reactions to cyclosporin and myelosuppression were the major toxicities documented. Renal and hepatic toxicity was rarely severe and always transient. Partial responses (PR) were observed in 2 patients (I rhabdomyosarcoma, I Ewings sarcoma). We conclude that this combination is tolerable in heavily pretreated patients and may be suitable for further evaluation in untreated poor risk tumours. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.

Primary tumors of the heart are extremely rare tumors that arise from the normal tissues that make up the heart. This is in contrast to secondary tumors of the heart, which are typically either metastatic from another part of the body, or infiltrate the heart via direct extension from the surrounding tissues. The most common primary tumor of the heart is the myxoma. In surgical series, the myxoma makes up as much as 77% of all primary tumors of the heart. Less common tumors of the heart include lipoma and cystic tumor of the atrioventricular nodal region. About 20 percent of primary tumors of the heart are malignant in nature. Malignant tumors of the heart include rhabdomyosarcomas, angiosarcomas, myxosarcomas, fibrosarcomas, leiomyosarcomas, reticulum cell sarcomas, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and liposarcomas. The cardiac sarcomas may occur at any age, but are more commonly seen in individuals in their 20s to 40s. They occur equally in males and females. A subset of the primary tumors ...

The median age of the patients was 52 years. The primary tumor subtype was luminal A (LA) in 7 cases, luminal B (LB) in 7 cases, luminal-Her2 (LH) in 4 cases, triple negative (TN) in 10 cases, and undetermined in 3 cases. The median disease-free interval was 61 months (11-200) after excluding 2 cases with lung oligometastases at the time of first examination. The 5-year recurrence- free survival rate after resection of lung oligometastases was 55%, and the 5-year overall survival rate was 88%. The subtype did not change between the primary tumor and the oligometastases in 19 of 28 cases (68%). Among the 9 cases where the subtype changed (32%), the change was from LB to LA in 4 cases, which did not influence the subsequent treatment. However, in the remaining 5 cases, the subtype changed from LA, LB, or LH to TN in 4 cases and from TN to LA in 1 case, leading to a change in the subsequent treatment. ...

Purpose: MRI provides detailed pictures of soft tissues without obstruction by overlying bone. It is often used to clarify findings from previous X-ray studies or CT scans. It can show or demonstrate wide areas of the abdomen from multiple planes. MRI can evaluate certain organ functions. It clearly shows lymph nodes and blood vessels, and is a noninvasive imaging method for evaluation of blood flow.. MRI may be used in diagnosing abnormal growths. It can distinguish tumors or other lesions from normal tissues and can provide information for the staging (determination of the size, extent, and spread) of abdominal tumors. MRI is sometimes used to avoid the dangers of angiography, repeated exposure to radiation, or for patients that cannot receive iodinated contrast dye.. Prior Preparation: No preparatory tests, diets, or medications are usually needed, unless the colon needs to be cleansed (with preparations such as a laxative or an enema). An MRI can be performed immediately after other imaging ...

We spoke to lead author, Sohrab Shah, to get some background on this research.. What features of this particular cancer made you want to study its metastasis? Were you surprised by your findings?. High grade serous ovarian cancers are often widespread through the peritoneal cavity at diagnosis. We wanted to ask what are the characteristics of cells that spread and what is the distribution of these cells throughout the abdominal lesions. The focus was to study the disease state prior to any treatment to characterize the diversity and take in inventory of the substrate of clones upon which treatment selective pressures may be acting. Many patients experience relapse after initial response to treatment. Mapping which clones lead to relapse remains a key question in the field. This was borne out in one patient in our study where specific clones that led to relapses were already present at diagnosis but only represented a minority of branches in the clonal phylogeny.. It is important to note that ...
Despite improvements in chemotherapy and radical surgical debulking, peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) remains among the most common causes of death from abdominal cancers. Immunotherapies have been effective for selected solid malignancies, but their potential in PC has been little explored. Here, we report that intraperitoneal injection of an infected cell vaccine (ICV), consisting of autologous tumor cells infected ex vivo with an oncolytic Maraba MG1 virus expressing IL12, promotes the migration of activated natural killer (NK) cells to the peritoneal cavity in response to the secretion of IFNγ-induced protein-10 (IP-10) from dendritic cells. The recruitment of cytotoxic, IFNγ-secreting NK cells was associated with reduced tumor burden and improved survival in a colon cancer model of PC. Even in mice with bulky PC (tumors , 8 mm), a complete radiologic response was demonstrated within 8 to14 weeks, associated with 100% long-term survival. The impact of MG1-IL12-ICV upon NK-cell recruitment ...
