Surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment of hepatic metastases from carcinoma of the breast.
Although the median survival time for 12 patients treated by hepatectomy was two times better than with usual treatment, it is believed this procedure is of doubtful benefit and will have to modify the protocol of chemotherapy radically.
Breast cancer: relationship between the size of the primary tumour and the probability of metastatic dissemination.
It was found that the threshold volume is strongly correlated with the number of involved lymph nodes and the histological grading, and suggests the existence for each tumour of a critical volume at which the first remote metastasis is initiated.
Medullary breast carcinoma. A reevaluation of 95 cases of breast cancer with inflammatory stroma
It is possible with the use of strict histologic criteria to distinguish a group of patients with a much more favorable prognosis, and adjuvant therapy appears to be justified if other factors warrant it.
The importance of histologic grade in long-term prognosis of breast cancer: a study of 1,010 patients, uniformly treated at the Institut Gustave-Roussy.
The data support that performing the modified histoprognostic grading of Scarff and Bloom is simple, reproducible, incurs no additional cost, may be carried out in the simplest histology laboratory, and defines an important risk factor in all patients.
Long-term risk of sarcoma following radiation treatment for breast cancer.
Epidermal growth factor receptor in human breast cancers: Correlation with estrogen and progesterone receptors
Ourin vivo analyses confirm results found in tissue culture derived from human breast carcinoma cells that EGFR is present therefore in poorly differentiated tumors and associated with other factors of poor prognosis.
Presence of circulating antibodies against cellular protein p53 in a notable proportion of children with B‐cell lymphoma
The results therefore show that the development of p53 immunogenicity is associated with a wide range of neoplastic diseases in children, and in particular with the presence of a B‐cell lymphoma.
Importance of tumor cells in axillary node sinus margins ('clandestine' metastases) discovered by serial sectioning in operable breast carcinoma.
The prognostic implications of small emboli of carcinoma cells in the sinus margins of axillary lymph nodes ('clandestine' metastases) discovered by serial node sectioning at 2 mm intervals was analysed to take into account when considering adjuvant manipulations.
Papillary tumors of large lactiferous ducts
The data support the benign nature of papillary cystadenoma inasmuch as none of the 73 patients treated with local excision developed cancer of the same breast, with only one patient having recurrence of the lesion.
Primary breast sarcoma: A review of 33 cases with immunohistochemistry and prognostic factors
Courses and survivals of the cystosarcoma and stromal groups were identical, questioning the clinical value of this pathologic distinction, and immunohistochemistry was disappointing for identification of specific histologic sub-types.
