Between 1975 and 1984, 125 cases of histologically confirmed soft tissue sarcomata (STS) were registered in the Department of Clinical Oncology in Edinburgh. Of these, 100 were eligible for analysis of prognostic factors. The overall 5-year survival rate was 21.5%. Univariate analysis demonstrated that extent of surgery, radical versus palliative or no(More)
It is well established that renal allograft recipients (RARs) have an increased incidence of viral warts and premalignant and malignant cutaneous lesions, and the risk of their development increases in proportion to duration of graft survival. It has been postulated that, in addition to the effects of prolonged immunosuppression and previous sun exposure,(More)
202 renal allograft recipients in south-east Scotland, who had received transplants between 1965 and 1986, were monitored over 3 years (1984-87) for the presence of warts, keratoses, and skin cancers. 77% of 69 patients with graft survival of more than 5 years had viral warts, 38% had keratoses, and 12% had skin cancers, whereas of the 133 with graft(More)
Renal allograft recipients (RARs) have a well-documented increased incidence of viral warts and cutaneous neoplasia, particularly those with long graft life and high sun exposure. A clinicopathological survey of 69 RARs in south-east Scotland, with follow-up periods of up to 28 years after transplantation, revealed marked variation in patient susceptibility(More)
The Scottish Melanoma Group (SMG) was established in 1979 to assess mortality from and incidence, features, pathological data, and management of cutaneous malignant melanoma in Scotland. Incidence during the first five years and five-year survival have already been reported. We now have data about incidence and mortality over eleven years in relation to(More)
For the past 20 years thickness of the primary tumour has been accepted as the most important guide to prognosis for patients with primary cutaneous malignant melanoma. The changing epidemiology of melanoma with an increasing number of patients with thin tumours has necessitated a reappraisal of this, with particular reference to interactions among tumour(More)
Renal allograft recipients suffer from a markedly increased susceptibility to premalignant and malignant cutaneous lesions. Although various aetiological factors have been implicated, little is known of the associated genetic events. In this study we initially employed immunocytochemical techniques to investigate the prevalence and localisation of(More)
