Between 1982 and 1990, 321 elderly patients (range 70-92 years, median age 77) with operable breast cancer (T1 in 219, T2 in 77, T3 in one and T4b in 24 patients) and clinically uninvolved axillary nodes underwent surgery without axillary dissection and received adjuvant tamoxifen. All patients had surgery performed under local anaesthesia. Tamoxifen was(More)
The disease-free probabilities after 3 to 7 years of follow-up of 180 breast cancers of known doubling times were studied to assess the prognostic significance and clinical implications of the growth characteristics of primary breast cancer. Fast-growing tumours, N+ greater than 3, showed a prognosis significantly worse (P less than 0.01) than that of(More)
The knowledge of the distributional patterns of saproxylic beetles is essential for conservation biology due to the relevance of this fauna in the maintenance of ecological processes and the endangerment of species. The complex community of saproxylic beetles is shaped by different assemblages that are composed of species linked by the microhabitats they(More)
Sir-We read with interest the paper by Galante et al. (1986), reporting that mass tumour doubling time can be calculated from double mammographic examination with an interval of greater than 20 days. We have carried out double mammographic examinations on 10 patients and examined intra-and inter-personal variation in this method of measuring breast(More)
