Early Detection and Monitoring of Cancer with the Anti-Malignin Antibody Test

The anti-malignin antibody (AMA) test was positive for early detection of cancer in 118 of 125 cases. Of the 56 patients who were monitored a correlation between the level of AMA and clinical status was 94.1 percent.

Evaluation of Neuron-Specific Enolase, Tissue Polypeptide Antigen, And Carcinoembryonic Antigen as Markers for Staging and Monitoring Response to Therapy of Lung Cancer

Tumor marker assessment was carried out in 154 patients by evaluation of neuron specific enolase (NSE), Carcinoembryonic antigens (CEA) and tissue Polypeptide antigen (TPA). Of 60 patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) TPA and NSE values were positive in 96.6%. In 69.1% of 94 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, at least on of the three markers was positive. Serum levels of NSE failed to differentiate SCLC from NSCLC. Levels of NSE and TPA in SCLC and those of TPA and CEA in NSCLC appeared to reflect the tumor burden.

Detection of Colon Cancer by Monitoring the Intracellular Fluorescein Fluorescence Polarization Changes in Lymphocytes

The structuredness of cytoplasmic matrix (SCM) of stimulated lymphocytes discriminated between people and patients even with locoregional colorectal cancer. The SCM test also distinguished Duke C patients from those with metastasis. Distribution of intracellular fluorescein fluorescence polarization values and their ratios differed according to whether the lymphocytes were from healthy subjects or from colorectal cancer patients.

Detection of Melanoma by Monitoring the Intracellular Fluorescein Fluorescence Polarization Changes in Lymphocytes

Thirty-five of 46 patients with active melanoma in stages I and II were detected by intracellular fluorescein fluorescent polarization (IFFP) of the structuredness of cytoplasmic matrix responding lymphocytes, while only half of the 11 patients in stage III were positive. The sensitivity and specificity for detection of melanoma by IFFP test were 73.9% and 90.6% respectively.

Biomarkers in Monitoring for Efficacy of Immunotherapy and Chemoprevention of Bladder Cancer with Dimethylsulfoxide

G-actin levels predicted risk of recurrence by quantitative fluorescence image analysis of uroepithelial cells from bladder wash samples immediately or following intravesical bacille Calmette-Guerin or dimethylsulfoxide treatment. Biochemically altered cells were frequently also found within adjacent normal-appearing uroepithelium as a "field effect."

Development and Characterization of Melanoma Cell Lines Established by Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy: Advances in the Monitoring of Patients with Metastatic Melanoma

Fine needle biopsies of melanoma permitted establishment of cell lines and provided an efficient and effective method for sequential sampling of a neoplasm and analysis of the growth and development of tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte populations. A strong correlation existed in melanoma antigen expression between fresh tumor explants and cultured cell lines.

RT-PCR-monitoring of acute myeloid leukemia with T(15;17), T(8;21)and INV(16)

We have investigated the use of RT-PCR monitoring in AML with the chromosomal translocations t8;21)-AMLl/ETO in M2 (Ml, M4), the t(15;17)-PML/RARalpha in M3 and the inv(16)-CBFB/MYH11 in M4Eo. Minimal residual disease was detectable with a sensitivity of 10(-5) - 10(-6) cells. All 10 pts. with M3 were PML/RAR alpha-positive. PCR-remission was achieved...

Biological monitoring of petrochemical workers: chromosomal aberrations and sister-chromatid exchanges in blood lymphocytes

To assess the possible cytogenetic consequences of occupational exposure to petrochemicals, the frequencies of chromosomal aberrations (CA) and sister-chromatic exchanges (SCE) in cultured lymphocytes were studied. Blood was obtained from 233 individuals (184 exposed and 49 worksite control) in an oil refinery and from 47 community control persons....

Biological monitoring of aflatoxin exposures in a hyperendemic area of hepatitis B virus infection and hepatocellular carcinoma

In order to assess the aflatoxin exposures among residents in Taiwan where both hepatitis B infection and hepatocellular carcinoma are hyperendemic, a total of 501 junior high school students recruited from 20 townships and precincts were studied. Overnight urine samples were collected from study subjects and determined for aflatoxin contents-by...
