In 1979, the protocol guidelines on clinical assessment of response to therapy in advanced breast cancer were proposed by the Chemotherapy Committee and the Endocrine Therapy Committee of the Japan Mammary Cancer Society, in accordance with guidelines presented by the UICC (1977) and by the Breast Cancer Task Force of the NCI (1978). After amending some(More)
A prospective study was carried out, between January 1980 and March 1982, of all women who presented to the Breast Cancer Unit, Guy's Hospital, with a second primary breast cancer. The percentage of new simultaneous tumours detected clinically or by mammography was approximately 3 per cent. Routine mammographic screening of the contralateral breasts of(More)
A prospective study has been conducted on 4954 female volunteers from the Island of Guernsey between 1977 and 1985 to examine risk factors for breast cancer and their relationship to mammographic parenchymal patterns as assessed by Wolfe's method of grading. Up to September 1988, 69 women had developed breast cancer, 11 of whom were prevalent cases being(More)
Between 1968 and 1976 a total of 5162 women volunteers were enrolled into a prospective study conducted on the Island of Guernsey. Up to February 1990 145 women subsequently developed breast cancer. Blood samples were taken at the time of enrollment and prolactin levels were known for 85% of the volunteers. In calculating the relationship between blood(More)
This paper reviews 105 patients with breast cancer who had a pleural effusion as a direct consequence of metastatic disease. The mean lag time between diagnosis of primary tumor and presentation of the effusion was 41.5 months. Mean survival time after development of an effusion was 15.7 months. Of the 99 patients with unilateral breast tumors, 50% had(More)
In a controlled randomized trial, 46 patients with pleural effusions secondary to breast cancer were treated at first diagnosis with either intracavitary mustine or talc, to determine which agent produced the more effective pleurodesis. Of the 37 evaluable patients, control of the effusion was achieved in 9/17 (56%) of those treated with mustine and 18/20(More)
Normal Japanese women had significantly more of their blood 17 beta-estradiol (E2) bound to sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) (53%) than British women (30%) and conversely less bound to albumin. While the proportion of SHBG-bound E2 increased with SHBG capacity and while binding fell as weight increased, the differences between the races do not appear to(More)
In each of two population-based studies conducted on the Island of Guernsey between 1967-1976 and 1977-1984, respectively, single specimens of blood were taken from over 5000 normal women. From these two studies there were 1173 and 946 postmenopausal women in whom blood prolactin was determined and multivariate analysis was used to establish the association(More)
The association with breast cancer of menstrual and reproductive events, family history of breast cancer, and body size have been studied on two cohorts of 6,706 volunteers on the island of Guernsey (United Kingdom), 168 of whom had breast cancer detected during follow-up. The median follow-up time of the non-cases was 21 years in the first study and 10(More)
