BACKGROUND One thousand seventy patients treated conservatively for Stages I and II breast cancer between the years 1982 and 1994 were reviewed. The median follow-up was 40 months with a maximum follow-up of 152 months. METHODS All patients had a wide local excision and lower lymph axillary node dissection followed by radiation therapy. The entire breast(More)
Between 1958-1983, 79 patients with a diagnosis of epithelial tumor of the nasopharynx received definitive irradiation at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Seventy-two percent of the patients had a Stage IV lesion. The dose to the nasopharynx was over 6,000 cGy in all but four patients. The 5- and 10-year actuarial survivals were 33% and 19%(More)
Twenty-three adult patients (ages greater than 15 years) and 75 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia were treated with similar intensive, sequential cytotoxic protocols (L-2). The adult patients have lower remission rate (78%) than the children (98%). The duration of remission and the length of survival are also shorter in adults. The incidence of(More)
Bone marrow erythroid progenitor cells were examined from 50 cases of acute leukaemia and from 20 normal subjects using an in vitro semisolid culture method. Numbers of both primitive erythroid progenitor cells (BFU-e) and later-stage erythroid progenitor cells (CFU-e) were remarkably depressed in patient with acute leukaemia in active phase. However, both(More)
Dual isotope brain SPECT was performed in a patient with recurrent brain tumor (grade II astrocytoma). In this case, a good coregistration of brain perfusion and tumor images was obtained because Tc-99m HMPAO and the Tl-201 chloride imaging were done simultaneously using a Triad SPECT unit. This method might play an important clinical role in the evaluation(More)
Sventy-five children under the age of 15 years, with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, were treated with a multiple drug chemotherapy regimen (L-2) and intrathecal methodtrexate. Remission was achieved in all except 1. Three died from infection early in remission and 1 was lost to follow-up. Of the remaining 70, relapse occurred in 19; in 3 children this was(More)
The results of the administration of two antimetabolites, methotrexate (MTX) and cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C), for the prevention and treatment of established central nervous system (CNS) disease in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia are discussed. Two protocols (L-2 and L-10) for the management of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia have(More)
One hundred and thirty-three children 15 years old and younger with acute lymphoblastic leukemia were treated with two different protocols. Both regimens consist of a multi-drug program, without CNS irradiation, administered for three years. Seventy-five children were enrolled on the first protocol, L-2; and 58 were treated on the subsequent regimen, L-10.(More)
