From data collected in a dermatopathology laboratory, the ratios between the numbers of specific cancers represent good markers for identifying any epidemiological shift in their prevalence and incidence among the reference population. The objective of the present study was to assess the ratios of the annual incidence of skin cancers in the Mosan region and Ardennes of Belgium over the past 6 years, and to compare the data with previous similar evaluations. A total of 7,640 skin cancers were collected and compared with regard to age and gender. Changes in time show that the trend of the increase in incidence of malignant melanoma (MM) is more impressive than that of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). The age distribution of BCC and SCC confirms the increasing risk with ageing. By contrast, there is a steady decrease over the past decade in the mean age for MM, teenagers and young adults now form an expanding proportion of MM patients. There is an ongoing trend in diagnosing an increased number of skin cancers in our laboratory. This trend is particularly obvious for MM affecting young adults. [less ▲]

We have studied the dynamic response of Pb thin films with a square array of antidots by means of ac susceptibility chi(T, H) measurements. For low amplitudes h of the ac excitation, the field dependence of the ac susceptibility exhibits a series of distinctive features associated with the presence of different dynamic regimes. For fields below a certain characteristic field H-s, vortices strongly pinned by the antidots perform an oscillatory movement inside the pinning potential induced by the external ac drive. For fields between H-s and H-p, interstitial vortices, performing an intra-valley motion in the weak potential wells produced by the repulsive interaction of their pinned neighbors, dominate the ac response. For H-p < H < H-t, the interstitial vortices are driven out of their pinning sites while vortices in the antidots remain trapped. For higher fields all vortices are set in motion and a critical state develops. We show that the characteristic h-independent field H-s allows one to clearly identify the maximum number of flux quanta per hole. Unlike H-s, the fields H-p and H-t, signaling the onset of motion of interstitial vortices and vortices trapped by the antidots, respectively, strongly depend on h. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.

We assessed the effect of CD34+ cell dose on costs in breast cancer patients undergoing autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplantation. Mean hospitalization costs were 26,992.9+/-9582.9 for patients receiving a CD34+ cell dose <5 x 10(6) cells/kg versus 22,339.4+/- 5471.1 for those receiving >5 x 10(6) CD34+ cells/kg (p=0.0065).

The antimony-121 Mossbauer spectra of Eu10Mn6Sb13 have been measured between 2 and 295 K. Although the Zintl formalism indicates that the nine crystallographically distinct antimony sites in Eu10Mn6Sb13 should have formal valence states of -2, -1, 0, and +1, the Mossbauer spectral isomer shifts reveal that the valence states of the 4.0 different sites are all quite similar and correspond to an average electronic configuration for antimony of 5s(1.7)5p(4.0). This configuration corresponds to an excess of negative charge on the antimony of 0.7 or an average valence of -0.7, a valence which is rather consistent with the average antimony valence of -0.61 obtained from the Zintl formalism for the nine antimony sites in Eu10Mn6Sb13. The spectra obtained between 90 and 295 K are more consistent with the absence rather than the presence of any transferred magnetic hyperfine field at the antimony. In contrast, the spectra obtained at 2 and 5 K reveal the presence of an average transferred magnetic hyperfine field of ca. 8 T, a field that arises from the ferromagnetic ordering of the near-neighbor manganese(II) ions.

We retrospectively analyzed 32 cases of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). Five cases were diagnosed in the period 1987-1994, for 27 cases in the period 1995-2002. There were 17 men and 15 women whose median age was 69 years. Three patients were immunodeficient. The commonest symptoms were focal deficit (16 patients) and cognitive/behaviour disturbances (14 patients). Radiologically, a total of 47 contrast-enhancing lesions were observed in 32 patients; 18 patients had deep-seated lesions. All but two patients underwent histological diagnosis following craniotomy (11 patients) and/or stereotaxic biopsy (22 patients); diagnosis was obtained on CSF cytology in one patient with a third ventricle tumour. In the last patient, the diagnosis was based on the finding of marked tumour shrinkage under corticotherapy, despite two negative histological examinations. Treatment included surgical resection (10 patients), chemotherapy (25 patients) and/or radiotherapy (12 patients). According to the therapeutic recommendations of the GELA (Groupe d'Etude des Lymphomes de l'Adulte), 19 patients received at least two courses of high-dose methotrexate; intrathecal chemotherapy was used in 20 patients with methotrexate and/or cytosine arabinoside. Radiation therapy consisted of whole brain irradiation followed by a boost on tumour site. Nine patients received a combined treatment of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Twelve patients showed rapid progression to death. At the time of last contact, 28/32 patients (88%) had died, all from PCNSL disease or from complications due to its treatment. The median Survival time was 13.9 months. We conclude that PCNSL is an increasingly frequent tumour. The diagnosis is obtained by stereotactic biopsy in the majority of cases. The prognosis appears dismal despite an intensive multidisciplinary therapeutic approach. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
