Mammography is of real assistance to the surgeon in evaluating breast problems not associated with a breast mass. Use of mammography in the detection of early breast cancer in breast demonstration projects has brought forth the time honored value judgement of benefit vs risk. This report introduces an additional aspect in the consideration of benefit vs(More)
Advanced intra-abdominal cancers are frequently associated with malignant ascites. The aim of this study was to document the frequency and clinical course of patients found to have large-volume ( > or = 3 L) malignant ascites when undergoing a major abdominal operation. Between October 1, 1987 and September 1, 1992, 385 patients with malignant ascites were(More)
Data on cellular immunity of 39 patients with breast cancer and 29 patients with malignant melanoma, is presented. T/B lymphocyte ratios, lymphocyte blastogenesis (LB) with PHA and with cancer antigen preparations were carried out from two to four weeks after cancer surgery, and immediately after eight weeks of immunostimulation with a tumor-specific(More)
Lymphocytic infiltration of the primary breast cancer and sinus histiocytosis of the axillary lymph nodes are indications of a favorable prognosis. Similarly, skin test responsiveness such as with DNCB or with tumor extracts correlates in general with stage of disease. This presentation will bring forth preliminary data on cellular immunity of breast cancer(More)
Sequential paired punch biopsy samples were taken from three separate locations on each of four burn patients and were quantitated for the number of viable bacteria per gram of tissue. The range (log10 0.02 to log10 1.51) and the standard deviation (log10 0.67) were determined for each pair. The 95 per cent confidence interval based on any single(More)
Tissue sections and cell suspensions from ten malignant tumors were tested for Fc receptors using sheep erythrocytes sensitized by rabbit IgG antibodies. Surface bound IgG on cells from the same tumors were estimated using an antiglobulin consumption test with 125I labelled human IgG as reference. The amount of IgG present per 10(6) cells varied from less(More)
