BACKGROUND Initial results of the UK/ANZ DCIS (UK, Australia, and New Zealand ductal carcinoma in situ) trial suggested that radiotherapy reduced new breast events of ipsilateral invasive and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) compared with no radiotherapy, but no significant effects were noted with tamoxifen. Here, we report long-term results of this trial.… (More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between quantitative estrogen-receptor (ER) and progesterone-receptor (PgR) expression and human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER-2) status with time to recurrence (TTR) in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive primary breast cancer treated with anastrozole or tamoxifen as adjuvant therapy. PATIENTS AND… (More)
BACKGROUND There is no consensus agreement regarding optimal management of locally excised ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or features of greatest assistance in predicting disease behaviour. Cases in the UKCCCR/ANZ DCIS trial have been histologically reviewed to determine the features of prognostic importance. METHOD A total of 72% of 1694 cases entered… (More)
From October 1976 to October 1986, 126 children had bone marrow transplants at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The indications were acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) (30), nonlymphocytic leukemia (24), aplastic anemia (15), solid tumors (47), and miscellaneous conditions (10). Of these, 21 (17%) underwent 22 open-lung biopsies. Fourteen of these… (More)
The oestrogen-receptor (E.R.) content of the primary tumour was measured in 133 postmenopausal women with operable breast cancer. 79 (59%) were positive for E.R. and 54 (41%) negative. Curves of life survival show that women with E.R.-positive tumours live longer than those with E.R.-negative tumours.
The National Wilms' Tumor Study, initiated in 1969, tested competing treatment strategems for patients with tumors ranging from Group (Gp) I (tumors confined to the kidney and totally removed) to Gp IV (remote metastases present at diagnosis). Three hundred and fifty-nine of 606 registered patients were randomized in the trial. Gp I patients under 2 years… (More)
BACKGROUND The Sloane Project, an audit of UK screen-detected non-invasive carcinomas and atypical hyperplasias of the breast, has accrued over 5000 cases in 5 years; with paired radiological and pathological data for 2564 ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) cases at the point of this analysis. We have compared the radiological estimate of DCIS size with the… (More)
