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].

In the past nine years, stories of 'port-site' deposits following laparoscopic surgical procedure for malignancy, specially laparoscopic resection of colonic melanoma, have solid a shadow at the knowledge of the laparoscopic procedure within the surgical guy­ agement in sufferers with melanoma. these reviews 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 phone migration from sturdy tu­ mors and the standards that underlie their profitable implantation in surgical wounds either within the presence and lack of a favorable strain pneumoperito­ neum.

First, the R1 definition has not been revised to take account of the evidence from over 5000 patients [2–13] that 0–1 mm is the optimum definition of microscopic involvement of a surgical margin, but more importantly, major issues have arisen with its change of definition of lymph node and venous involvement, two key treatment factors. From a definition that was quantitative of tumor deposits ≥3 mm in diameter as nodal involvement and a standard definition of venous involvement, it has changed to describing lymph nodes as round structures and venous involvement as irregular nodules.

In the first round uptake was 63%, but dropped to 60% in later rounds. 4% in the first round and, as expected, screen-detected cancers were found to be at a much more favorable stage than those arising in the control group. Unfortunately, no mortality data are available from this study. In summary, there are five large studies investigating the role of the guaiac-based Hemoccult II FOBt as a primary screening modality; four were randomized, four were truly population based, and four have reported mortality data.

Sigmoidoscopy was estimated to cost e8000 per life year saved, but when uncertainty was incorporated into the model it was not even possible to be 80% certain that sigmoidoscopy is cost effective compared with FOBt screening no matter how much is paid for each life year saved. This uncertainty is caused by the lack of data on mortality reduction brought about by flexible sigmoidoscopy and will be resolved when the results of the randomized trials are available. As far as colonoscopy is concerned when the 10-yearly examination was compared with the annual FOB testing it was estimated that each life year saved would cost e28,500, and when uncertainty was taken into account it became clear that to be 95% certain of cost effectiveness it would be necessary to pay e90,000 per life year saved.
