Die tierische Zelle in Zellkultur

Die ersten erfolgreichen Versuche zur Züchtung tierischer Zellen außerhalb des Organismus reichen zurück in den Beginn unseres Jahrhunderts. 1907 gelang HARRI­ SON durch Explantation von Gewebsstücken aus Froschembryonen der Nachweis, daß in der Embryonalentwicklung die Neuriten als Fortsätze der Nervenzelle ohne Be­ teiligung anderer Zellen gebildet werden, und daß damit eine spezifische celluläre Funktion auch außerhalb des Gesamtorganismus zu beobachten ist [310,311].

Port-Site and Wound Recurrences in Cancer Surgery: Incidence - Pathogenesis - Prevention

In past times nine years, reviews of 'port-site' deposits following laparoscopic surgical procedure for malignancy, particularly laparoscopic resection of colonic melanoma, have forged a shadow at the knowledge of the laparoscopic technique within the surgical guy­ agement in sufferers with melanoma. these experiences of port-site deposits, a few ninety circumstances stated within the literature as much as 1999, have opened a 'can of worms' and highlighted the shortage of our wisdom on melanoma mobile migration from strong tu­ mors and the criteria that underlie their profitable implantation in surgical wounds either within the presence and lack of a favorable strain pneumoperito­ neum.

The right hand column shows features which have been associated with good prognosis. Muscularis Propria Serosa be made on the management of the patient. As a general rule, all tumours with metastasis to lymph nodes (or other more distant sites) will receive adjuvant chemotherapy. Tumours may receive adjuvant chemotherapy if one of the poor prognostic features is present even in the absence of nodal metastasis. Liver metastases It has been shown that partial hepatectomy for resection of discrete metastatic deposits in the liver can improve patient outcome.

The next tab provides a decision history for the patient. 3). This reasoning is based on the clinical guidelines encoded in the system and quickly brings the MDT members up-to-date on the patient’s stage in the patient journey and obviates the need to recreate the previous discussion and decisions; this would be necessary if only the result of previous decisions were recorded, not the rationale, and MDT membership differed from the previous time the patient was discussed. 4) brings up a screen which presents an ordered list of possible treatment options, with those most highly recommended for a given patient given first.

It is not routinely used for staging, but would be considered before surgery for resection or for problem solving. Patients are injected with deoxyglucose labelled with radioactive 18Fluorine (FDG). This is taken up avidly by malignant cells, and its presence is detected when it decays to produce positrons. A CT scanner is sited adjacent to the positron detectors and provides anatomical detail. 7). FDG normally shows avid uptake in the brain and heart muscle. It is excreted in the urine, and so high activity is seen in the kidney, ureters and bladder.
