The prevention of invasive cancer of the rectum

, : The prevention of invasive cancer of the rectum. Cancer 41(3): 1137-1139

The results of the 25+ yr Cancer Detection Center study, including 20,000 participants and 100,000+ patient-yr experience, demonstrate the obviation of appearance of most lower bowel cancers associated with a program of proctosigmoidoscopy and adenomatous polyp removal. Once on a schedule of periodic examinations, study participants developed only a fraction of the anticipated number of rectal cancers. Most of the cancers which developed were detected while at an early stage and with involvement of only the mucosa. Not a single death from lower bowel cancer occurred among active study participants or for 7+ yr following the most recent examination at the Center.

Deficiency of adrenal hormones promotes exacerbated neutrophil influx into inflammatory sites. We investigated the effect of adrenal deficiency on neutrophil mobilization comparing adrenalectomized (ADX) male Wistar rats to sham-operated (SO) or n...

In field trials in Kentucky, tall fescue cv. Ky 31, Kenhy, G1-306 (a high-perloline cv.) and G1-307 (a low-perloline cv.) were sown in late Aug. 1975. Ammonium nitrate was applied at 40 lb N/ac prior to sowing and an additional 33 lb N/ac on 1 Mar...
