In 6 patients with acute myeloblastic leukaemia, daunorubicin was assayed in leukaemic cells from peripheral blood or bone marrow. The cells were separated from red blood cells and granulocytes by centrifugation on a Ficoll-Isopac gradient. The assay was performed by high performance liquid chromatography. Daunorubicin concentrations in peripheral leukaemic(More)
The detection of bone marrow involvement might be of prognostic value and may influence therapeutic decisions in small cell lung cancer. By unilateral bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, evidence of bone marrow metastases is seen in 15-30% of patients with this disease. Since magnetic resonance imaging of the lower body and immunostaining with monoclonal(More)
Among the patients showing evidence of cerebral metastases without previously known cancer history, lung cancer has been found 37 times as the primary tumor in our institution. There were 34 men and three women and all but two were heavy smokers. Only one presented at diagnosis with thoracic symptoms but the chest radiograph was abnormal in 34. The(More)
The real need for extensive staging at the time of diagnosis is discussed in regard to small cell lung carcinoma. We performed a decisional retrospective analysis on a series of 182 patients, based on three staging steps: the first step included physical examination and routine biologic tests. The second step consisted of liver ultrasonography and needle(More)
From January 1986 through December 1988, 227 patients were included in a multi-institutional pilot study for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Out of the 211 patients who fully completed the staging procedures, 77 (35%) appeared to have SCLC limited to the thorax. All patients received combination therapy consisting of AVI (Adriamycin, VP-16 and Ifosfamide),(More)
Infections of the respiratory airways are frequently responsible for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and attacks of asthma. However, the causal infectious agents in practice are rarely precisely identified. We have undertaken a prospective study with the aim of researching into the bacteria and viruses associated with these(More)
The occurrence of cerebral metastases is a frequent event in the natural history of many cancers, the main primary lesions being lung and breast cancer. Such metastases are of very poor prognosis, since the median survival time is less than one year. The therapeutic approach is determined after careful pretreatment evaluation including: measurement of the(More)
We report here the medical history of a patient diagnosed with teratocarcinoma presenting with a pleural mass without mediastinal involvement as well as typical paraneoplastic hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. This atypical observation is discussed as well as data from the literature on thoracic localisations of extragonadal malignant germ cell tumours.
