This review is aimed at the analysis the current state of acral lentiginous melanoma. This tumor has rather aggressive course and is the main cause of death in skin cancer patients. In Russia the incidence of melanoma during the period 2000-2010 increased from 3.18 to 3.95 cases per 100000 of population. The average annual growth rate was 1.99% and the(More)
BACKGROUND The use of genetically modified autologous tumor cells appears to be a promising approach for cancer therapy. A phase I/II trial was undertaken to define the feasibility, safety and antitumor effects of the autologous vaccine prepared by transferring tag7/PGRP-S gene into malignant melanoma and renal cell carcinoma cells. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
In the last 25 years germ cell tumors have become one of the few cancers with high cure rate. However, there is a lack of information on testicular germ cell tumors in the male population and even among general practitioners leading to late or false diagnoses. The shortening of timespan between the first clinical signs appearance and diagnoses can result in(More)
Myxoid sarcomas are characterized by the presence of branching capillaries in preparations around which lipogenesis is proceeded (unilocular and multilocular). Fat is chemically neutral. The cell content is represented by two basic kinds of cells: 1. stellate lipoblast -- a cambial element of the tumor, and 2. mature lipocyte -- a terminal stage of the(More)
Resected material was used from 108 patients with disseminated skin melanoma and 47 patients suffering metastasized renal tumors to test procedures of tumor cell culture preparation and to search the best parameters. Gene tag 7 transfer, liposome delivery and electroporation were employed to stimulate immunogenic tumor cells. The transfer results were(More)
