OBJECTIVE To determine the factors associated with false-negative results on sentinel node biopsy and sentinel node localization (identification rate) in patients with breast cancer enrolled in a multicenter trial using a combination technique of isosulfan blue with technetium sulfur colloid (Tc99). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Sentinel node biopsy is a(More)
Phyllodes tumors are rare lesions of the breast with unpredictable behavior. A review of 18 patients with phyllodes tumors was performed to determine if pathologic and cellular characteristics correlated with clinical behavior and to determine the influence of the extent of the operation performed on clinical outcome. Local excision, primarily breast(More)
Surface enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) time-of-flight mass spectrometry has emerged as a successful tool for serum based detection and differentiation of many cancer types, including breast cancers. In this study, we have applied the SELDI technology to evaluate three potential applications that could extend the effectiveness of established(More)
Mammography remains the diagnostic test of choice for breast cancer, but 20% of cancers still go undetected. Many serum biomarkers have been reported for breast cancer but none have proven to represent effective diagnostic strategies. ProteinChip mass spectrometry is an innovative technology that searches the proteome for differentially expressed proteins,(More)
Indications for chest wall resection of metastatic or locally recurrent sarcoma and for subsequent bony reconstruction are controversial. Twenty-eight patients had chest wall resection for high-grade primary, metastatic, or recurrent sarcoma. In all patients, resection with selective reconstruction of the bony thorax was performed without operative(More)
Male breast cancer is a rare clinical entity accounting for approximately 1 per cent of all breast cancers. The present study investigated changes in patient characteristics, disease patterns, treatment, and outcomes over a 30-year period. A retrospective chart review was performed on male breast cancer patients treated between 1975 and 2005 at Eastern(More)
Endocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract produce a variety of secretory products that cause unique clinical syndromes. Diagnosis, which is often delayed, requires a strong index of suspicion and must be confirmed by biochemical tests. Precisely where these tumors originate remains a topic of controversy. However, several growth factors that may be(More)
BACKGROUND Glutathione (GSH) is important in in vitro models of radiation and drug resistance, but its clinical relevance is uncertain. GSH levels were measured prospectively in 35 patients with breast cancer to establish normal ranges and to determine whether differences exist between tumor, lymph node metastases (when present), and normal breast tissue.(More)
PURPOSE Adenocarcinoma of the appendix is a rare neoplasm, and controversies persist regarding management. The purpose of this study was to identify prognostic factors and define management strategies for patients with adenocarcinoma of the appendix. METHODS A retrospective case series was conducted at three medical school teaching hospitals over a(More)
