This quantity seriously melanoma development and development. The complexity of the in­ stories techniques in the direction of melanoma administration in guy at teraction of malignant neoplasms and the host, the the degrees of: detection, prognosis, surgical procedure, radiology, heterogeneity of malignant telephone subpopulations, and the chronobiology and endocrine therapy. lifestyles of metastatic tumor cells proof against drug thera­ numerous chapters overview chosen equipment of melanoma diag­ pies stay as major medical demanding situations to medical on­ nosis. additionally, various on-going and novel ap­ cologists. certainly, traditional therapy regimens of che­ proaches for melanoma therapy also are awarded during this quantity. growth within the early detection of malignant neo­ motherapy, surgical procedure and radiology are usually useless for the remedy of a giant number of proven metastatic can­ plasms, coupled with novel methods for the remedy of cer in sufferers. while one considers the insidiousness of such neoplasms, may well eventually yield secure and well-tolerated brokers for the selective remedy of strong malignancies. New revolutionary neoplastic development and the emergence of con­ tinuously extra competitive and malignant mobile subpop­ healing ways, directed in the direction of the biochemical ulations one is beaten with the demanding situations inherent in and molecular ambitions pointed out within the past volumes of this sequence, may well finally result in the iteration of latest mo­ trying to regulate malignant neoplasms.

Example text

This indicates that cancer prevention is not possible. An extensive investigation by Junghans and Sachs (8) concluded that prevention of cervical carcinoma does not influence the general cancer morbidity! Fcmale patients who had the cervix removed, conized, or electro-coagulated, or had the uterus removed for preventive reasons, were just as endan- gered later by malignant tumors at other sites as untreated patients of the same age groups. Thus we should remember that cancer mortality, when corrected for age and numbers, has remained almost constant since 1900.

The development of pneumonia occurs because of a temporary breakdown ofthe defense towards pathogens. The causative factors are the pathogens themselves; in addition, it requires a (general) exposure stress ("a cold"). The pathogens as the necessary, but not necessarily sufficient prerequisite for the cause of pneumonia, act organ-specifically; disposition and exposure, however, act on the total body, so that the recognizable symptoms, like changes in the blood count, fever, tendency to perspire, loss of appetite, etc.

Krakowski diseases. When this knowledge is applied to cancer, then it becomes obvious that the question, whether cancer is a local or general disease, is inappropriate. The disposition has to be present; it is possible that every person has the precondition for forming so-called 'malignant cells'. The tendency towards the formation of cancer depends strongly on age for it increases considerably with age. The so-called 'carcinogens' (predominantly chemical substances of varying structure) have the capability for releasing the blocked oncogenes and cancer growth begins - at first unnoticed and unnoticeable, until the tumor can bc diagnosed through direct or indirect symptoms, a hypothesis supported by the research of Ladik and co-workers (5, 7, 8, 10-13, 15, 18, 19).
