BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We investigated the results of using stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) for 58 patients with renal cell carcinomas (RCC) who were evaluated restrospectively for response rates, local control rates and side effects. PATIENTS AND METHODS From October 1997 to January 2003, 50 patients suffering from metastatic RCC and eight patients with(More)
A retrospective study has indicated that stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) has a value in treating both primary tumors and singular metastatic lesions that cause local symptoms. Here we present the results of a prospective study evaluating the safety and local efficacy of SRT in metastatic or inoperable primary renal cancer. Thirty patients with metastatic(More)
BACKGROUND About 2% of patients with a carcinoma in one kidney develop either metastases or a new primary tumor in the contralateral kidney. Often, renal cancers progress rapidly at peripheral sites and a metastasis to the second kidney may not be the patient's main problem. However, when an initial renal cancer is more indolent yet spreads to the formerly(More)
OBJECTIVES Leukemia, together with lymphoma and multiple myeloma, are hematological malignancies, malignancies of the blood-forming organs. There are four major types of leukemia: acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). There is a growing amount of literature of(More)
Purpose. To describe a dermally non-invasive serial sampling technique and to test its clinical feasibility with regard to glucose measurement. Methods. A standardized skin mini-erosion devoid of the epidermal barrier, and covered by an artificial one, was formed by a suctioning technique. Interstitial fluid (IF) was extracted serially by brief application(More)
BACKGROUND The likelihood of tumour recurrence after nephrectomy in localised clear cell renal cell carcinoma is well characterised by clinical and pathological parameters. However, these assessments can be improved and personalised by the addition of molecular characteristics of each patient's tumour. We aimed to develop and validate a prognostic multigene(More)
INTRODUCTION Ovarian cancer is generally diagnosed at advanced stages of the disease; therefore, poor prognoses are typical. The development of tumor markers is thus of utmost importance. Prostasin is a protease that in normal tissues is highly expressed only in the prostate gland and seminal fluid. A previous study showed that prostasin is highly(More)
PURPOSE The 21-gene Recurrence Score (RS) assay is a validated prognostic/predictive tool in early hormone receptor-positive breast cancer (BC); however, only a few prospective outcome results have been available so far. In the phase III PlanB trial, RS was prospectively used to define a subset of patients who received only endocrine therapy. We present(More)
PURPOSE The 21-gene Recurrence Score assay (Oncotype DX) provides prognostic/predictive information in oestrogen receptor positive (ER+) early breast cancer, but access/reimbursement has been limited in most European countries in the absence of prospective outcome data. Recently, two large prospective studies and a real-life 5-year outcome study have been(More)
