As with most cancers the prognosis in pharyngeal and oral cavity cancer largely depends on tumour stage. Physical examination, including endoscopy should be combined with technical radiologic imaging to record the precise extent of tumour. The TNM staging system of the head and neck region is, in fact, an anatomic staging system that describes the anatomic(More)
To study the efficacy of reirradiation as salvage treatment in patients with locally recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Patients and Methods: Between 1993 and 2000, 20 consecutive patients (twelve males and eight females) with nasopharyngeal cancer, previously irradiated in different Hungarian institutions, were reirradiated for biopsy-proven locally(More)
The purpose of the study is to report a case of salvage low dose rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy in a patient with locally recurrent prostate cancer, four years after his first treatment with combined external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy. A 61-year-old man was treated with 1x10 Gy HDR brachytherapy and a total of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the clinicopathologic effects of local neoadjuvant Leukocyte Interleukin Injection (LI) regimen in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients. Treatment regimen included LI 800 IU/d as interleukin-2 (IL-2), administered half peritumorally and half perilymphatically five times per week for 3 weeks; low-dose cyclophosphamide;(More)
The indication of neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been recently extended; it is now applied not only in locally advanced breast cancer but in primarily resecable tumours as well, in order to promote breast conservation. Based on recent clinical results, the reconsideration of traditional lymph node dissection in axillary staging is timely in patients receiving(More)
AIM To report the role of different imaging methods in staging individuals with multiple endocrine neoplasia 2A (MEN2A) or familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (FMTC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Fourteen newly diagnosed gene carriers underwent cervical ultrasound scanning (US), cervical and mediastinal CT, MRI and whole-body meta-[131I]iodobenzylguanidine(More)
The polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma of the nasopharynx is a rare disease. Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma is a minor salivary gland neoplasm which occurs frequently in the mucosa of the soft and hard palates, in the buccal mucosa and in the upper lip. To date this entity has been identified within the oral cavity and only one case within the(More)
We aim to harness the natural humoral immune response by various technologies to get novel biomarkers. A complex antibody analysis in sera and in the tumor microenvironment leads to reveal tumor-specific antibodies. More strategies were introduced to select the most effective one to identify potential tumor antigen-binding capacity of the host. Epstein-Barr(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) represents 85 % of all malignant lung cancers. In metastatic disease the principle goal of palliative therapy is to prolong survival with least toxicity and best patients’ quality of life. Bevacizumab (BEV) has been approved as first line treatment in combination with platinum based chemotherapy and maintenance therapy in(More)
Regional lymph node status is the most important prognostic factor in breast cancer. Sentinel lymph node biopsy is the standard method of axillary staging in early breast cancer patients with clinically negative nodes. Preoperative lymphoscintigraphy might support refining biopsy findings by determining the number and location of sentinel lymph nodes. In(More)
