Six men with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) were studied prospectively to assess the effect of treatment with the L-10 protocol on reproductive capacity. Before therapy three men had fathered children (two, two children; one, three children); the others were sexually mature although no fertility studies had been done prior to or during their treatment.(More)
Flow cytometry studies of the DNA distribution of 33 lung tumors were carried out. All of the carcinomas (32 cases) had aneuploid DNA modal values, ranging from 2.15c to 5.05c; in the single case of carcinoid studied, the tumor cells were diploid. DNA ploidy levels tended to be higher for epidermoid than adenocarcinoma; they were the same in lymph node(More)
The fraction of cells in S + G2 + mitosis from 54 urothelial tumours was calculated by flow cytometry after acridine orange (AO) staining of cells obtained by bladder irrigation or biopsy. Fluorescence signals emitted by the AO-stained DNA and RNA of each cell were separated optically and measured for 5,000 cells per specimen. The patients were classified(More)
The cell cycle distribution of human mammary carcinoma was determined by flow cytometry in 21 cases and compared with that of the same tumor concurrently metastatic in regional lymph nodes. The percentage of S-phase cells in the nodal metastasis as compared to the primary tumor was significantly lower in estrogen-binding-positive tumors than in(More)
Context In 2007, a retrospective case-control study provided evidence that adjuvant mitotane prolongs recurrence-free survival (RFS) in patients with radically resected adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). Objective and Design We aimed to confirm the prognostic role of adjuvant mitotane in the same series after 9 additional years of follow-up. Setting,(More)
CONTEXT Patients with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) frequently suffer from cortisol excess, which portends a negative prognosis. Rapid control of cortisol hypersecretion and tumor growth are the main goals of ACC therapy. Abiraterone acetate (AA) is a potent inhibitor of 17alpha-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase, a key enzyme of adrenal steroidogenesis. OBJECTIVE(More)
