Breast conserving surgery and postoperative breast radiotherapy were used to treat 219 cases of AJCC Stage I and II breast carcinoma at the Michael Reese and University of Chicago Hospitals. Most patients were treated with lumpectomy and axillary sampling followed by breast irradiation to a dose of 46 Gy followed by a boost dose of 14-16 Gy to the surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Although breast conservation has received increased acceptance, there are still unresolved issues regarding local treatment techniques, such as the extent of surgery, in relation to the final margins of excision and the use of tumor bed boost radiation. The goal of this study was to determine the local control and breast preservation with(More)
The relationship between estrogen receptor levels and recurrence of breast cancer was examined in 302 patients with adenocarcinoma of the breast, pathologic stage (PS) I and II. All 117 patients with PS II adenocarcinoma of the breast received adjunctive chemotherapy. In this series, there was no association between the estrogen receptor level and(More)
The results of a pilot multimodality program (surgery + radiotherapy + chemotherapy) are reported in 34 women with advanced stage III and IV adenocarcinoma of the breast. The median relapse-free survival for all patients was 24 months, with 74% of the premenopausal patients and 37% of the postmenopausal alive at five years (P = 0.18). The relapse rate was(More)
The response to secondary therapy, chemotherapy or hormonal, is examined in 26 patients with adenocarcinoma of breast who failed adjuvant chemotherapy. Response rates to tamoxifen or combination chemotherapy, cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and 5-FU (CMF) or Adriamycin and vincristine (AV) were similar to response rates reported for Stage IV patients, never(More)
The ideal preparation of the intestine prior to elective colonic resection has been a controversial subject. With the development of new and more effective antibiotics, many modalities of intestinal preparation preoperatively have been used in an effort to reduce the number of infectious complications. Mechanical cleansing of the intestine, when accompanied(More)
The solid-state structure of (-)-scopolamine hydrobromide sesquihydrate was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis at low temperature. (Nr,C alpha-S)-(-)-Scopolamine hydrobromide sesquihydrate gives crystals belonging to the tetragonal space group P4(3)2(1)2, and at 180 K: a = 11.870(4), c = 26.193(3) A, V = 3691(1) A3, Z = 8, R(F) = 0.062,(More)
