BACKGROUND Surgical resection of adenocarcinoma of the stomach is curative in less than 40 percent of cases. We investigated the effect of surgery plus postoperative (adjuvant) chemoradiotherapy on the survival of patients with resectable adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction. METHODS A total of 556 patients with resected(More)
PURPOSE The American Urological Association convened the Prostate Cancer Clinical Guidelines Panel to analyze the literature regarding available methods for treating locally confined prostate cancer, and to make practice policy recommendations based on the treatment outcomes data insofar as the data permit. MATERIALS AND METHODS The panel searched the(More)
Thirty-six patients underwent curative resection of a primary pancreatic carcinoma from January 1977 to September 1987; 26 had Whipple resections, seven had total pancreatectomies, and three had distal pancreatectomies. Twenty-six patients manifested recurrent disease, four died of intercurrent disease, and six were apparently cured. Median survival was(More)
We reviewed patients treated by resection of solitary cerebral metastasis at the Mayo Clinic from January 1, 1972, to December 1, 1982. Eighty-five patients rendered clinically disease-free and who received intramural follow-up after craniotomy were studied. Adjuvant whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) was delivered to 34, and 51 were observed after(More)
The authors reviewed 229 consecutive patients treated intramurally by resection of solitary cerebral metastasis. Patients were classified into four groups on the basis of whether a gross total resection or subtotal resection was performed and whether systemic disease was present or absent at the time of craniotomy. Group 1 had gross total resection and no(More)
PURPOSE To determine survival and relapse rates by T and N stage and treatment method in five randomized phase III North American rectal adjuvant studies. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data were pooled from 3,791 eligible patients enrolled onto North Central Cancer Treatment Group (NCCTG) 79-47-51, NCCTG 86-47-51, US Gastrointestinal Intergroup 0114, National(More)
The pathologic features, clinical presentation and natural history of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) developing in the noncirrhotic liver were studied in 61 patients against a background of 63 patients seen concurrently with HCC complicating cirrhosis. Noncirrhotic HCC had a bimodal age distribution, with females predominating the first age-clustering(More)
We evaluated conventional pulse exposure versus continuous exposure models of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) radiosensitization in HT-29 (human colon adenocarcinoma) and DU-145 (human prostate cancer adenocarcinoma) cell lines. Cell survival following treatment with drug and/or radiation was determined by colony formation assays. Radiation was delivered either by(More)
From 1970 to 1988, 41 cases of advanced maxillary sinus cancers were treated at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Local control for the 37 evaluable patients was achieved in 21 (57%). Local control by radiation therapy alone was achieved in ten of 19 (53%) patients compared with eight of 14 (57%) treated with a combination of surgery and radiation(More)
4515 Background: INT0116 (SWOG 9008) was a prospectively randomized phase III trial of postoperative adjuvant therapy utilizing 5-FU/leucovorin plus external beam radiation in 582 eligible cases of resected stage IB-IV(M0) stomach and gastroesophageal junction cancers. Initial results (NEJM 345: 725, 2001) showed both overall and disease free survivals(More)
