The IVth foreign convention at the Adjuvant treatment of fundamental Breast melanoma, often referred to as the st. Gallen convention, was once back attended by way of greater than 800 scientists and clinicians drawn to this extensive spectrum of breast melanoma learn and the interactions among such different fields of curiosity and specialties as melanoma pathology, molecular biology, and psychosocial oncology. This quantity collects findings and conclusions provided on the conference.

Example text

Data were reported as tumor cross-sectional areas measured from X-ray films but are plotted as volumes here If tumors grow as our model predicts, there should be some supporting evidence perhaps in older papers, when watchful waiting was an accepted practice. There are such data on multi-year observations of untreated malignancies which we have reviewed [26], and the literature is rich in examples of dormancy. For reviews, see Meltzer [14] and Stewart et al. [34). One especially well-documented example of primary breast dormancy and subsequent regrowth is from Ingleby and Moore [11] and is shown in Fig.

It is activated differently under hypoxic conditions compared to oxygenated conditions and shows increased toxicity under hypoxia in some cell lines [8]. Hypoxic activation of anticancer drugs is an area under intensive study by many groups [9], but MMC remains the only clinically available drug. To investigate the mechanisms of MMC resistance, a CHO cell line was made resistant in vitro to MMC [10). It showed cross-resistance to a monofunctional analogue of MMC, but a new analogue more easily activated overcame resistance.
