Modern Trends in Human Leukemia VIII

This book reports on the VIIIth Wilsede Meeting on Modern Trends in Human Leukemia held in June 1988. The contributions are divided into clinical, immunological, cell biological, virological and molecular genetic sections. The Wilsede Joint Meeting on Pediatric Oncology V is also included. The Frederick Stohlmann Lectures were given by Janet Rowley and Malcolm Moore, while C. Gajdusek gave a very special lecture on the fantasy of a virus from the inorganic world. Bone marrow transplantation, using haemopoetic growth factors and the diagnostic value of molecular genetics were discussed. The VIIIth Wilsede Meeting shows again that the new technologies achieved do not eliminate the old ones. This was discussed by Alexander Friedenstein shown in the results Alexander Maximov achieved in 1907. The book demonstrates the complexity of leukemia research as a tool for human biology. The book will be of value to both clinicians and researchers in many fields of oncology, as well as for investigators and students interested in human biology. Of further interest: R. Neth, R.C.

Trends in Leukemia Research

This new book brings together leading research from around the globe. Leukaemia is a cancer that begins in blood cells. In people with leukaemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells. The abnormal cells are leukaemia cells. At first, leukaemia cells function almost normally. In time, they may crowd out normal white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. The scope of the book includes the four common types of leukaemia: Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (chronic lymphoblastic leukaemia, CLL) most often affecting people over age 55. Chronic myeloid leukaemia (chronic myelogenous leukaemia, CML) affects mainly adults. Acute lymphocytic leukaemia (acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, ALL) the most common type of leukaemia in young children. Acute myeloid leukaemia (acute myelogenous leukaemia, AML) which occurs in both adults and children. New advances in diagnosis, pathogenesis and therapy are presented.

Trends in Thyroid Cancer Research

Thyroid cancer is cancer of the thyroid gland. These may be of many types including papillary, follicular, Hurthle cell (aka oxyphilic or oncocytic), or medullary cancers. Surgery plays an important role in treating these cancers. The thyroid concentrates iodine and so is extremely sensitive to the effects of various radioactive isotopes of iodine produced by nuclear fission. These radioactive isotopes increase the chances of developing cancer, though thyroid cancer can develop even without any exposure to radioactivity. Some evidence suggests that insufficient or excessive dietary iodine may also increase the risk for thyroid cancer. This book presents the latest research in this field.

Modern Trends in Human Leukemia III

"Es ist ja ganz eineriei, wer es gejunden hat, die Hauptsache ist, daB es gejunden worden ist." This was said by Hermann Wilbrand, director of the department of opthalmology at the university hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (1919-1923), when others claimed priority for the long searched for cortical visuell center, which he had discovered. Five years ago we tried in Wilsede an unusual experiment, bringing together for three long days and nights scientists and medical doctors to learn like students about each others work. The hope was that the participants in the workshop would discuss the whole problem of human leukemia, and coopera tive programmes among the different specialized research groups and medical centers would be stimulated. Now five years later we feel that the experiment was a success. Coope rative research programmes around the world were started and most of us understand more and more the Frederic Stohl man question about the pratical application of our research and its benefit for the patient. The chairman have done a tremendous job organizing an up to date scientific programme for the third Wilsede meet ing. I would like to thank all of them for a programme which includes all the important results and future aspects of human leukemia.

Gene Technology

The 11 th meeting in "Modern Trends in Human Leukemia" took place from June 19 to 21, 1994 in Wilsede in the middle of the Liineburger Heide, South of Hamburg. Interwoven with the Leukemia program was the Nato-sponsored Symposium of the ASI-Series "Gene Technology in Analysis of Malignant and Inherited Human Diseases Related to Development" . The Wilsede meeting was continued on a ship of the Neva leading through lake Ladoga and lake Onega. The topics of both meetings included discussion on recent progress isolation and development of hematopoietic stem cells, genes crucial for development and diseases, methods of gene transfer, application of gene transfer; oncogenes and anti-oncogenes as targets for gene therapy; receptors and their ligands in normal development and diseases, immunology and immunotherapy, radiation biology, clinical leukemias and bone marrow transplantation. The Nato workshop concentrated not only on analysis of cell systems useful for somatic gene therapy, but also on actual themes directly related to correction of human diseases. The latter aspects emphasized themes related to biotechnology, the first part was by nature more general. We also included a few contributions that discussed perspectives for the future of gene therapy and possible relationships to evolution.

Leading Edge Cancer Research

Cancer is a group of different diseases (over 100) characterised by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Cancer can arise in many sites and behave differently depending on its organ of origin. If a cancer spreads (metastasizes), the new tumour bears the same name as the original (primary) tumour. Significant progress has been made in recent years in the battle against cancer and in understanding its underlying biological mechanisms. This research progress has resulted in many experimental treatments and cures which establish hope for wide-spread cures. This book brings together important research from around the world in this frontal field.

Modern Trends in Human Leukemia VIII

You see things, and sa)' why? But I dream 1hings that never were, and I say, 11'hy 110t? George Bernhard Shaw Far ahead of his time, June 1st, 1909, Alexander Maximov communicated in a lecture, given in the Charite in Berlin, the fundamental knowledge, that there exists a lymphoid hemopoetic stem cell. Alexander Friedenstein explained that during the following years, Maximov also showed that the idea of interaction between hemopoetic cells and their stroma to be one of the most significant experiences. Monoclonal antibodies, recombinant DNA technics and the improvement of tissue culture models are the major developments to improve our possibilities to clarify growth and differentiation functions of hemopoetic cells. During the last two decades it was shown that soluble products, released from T cells, were not only involved in inducing B cells to produce specific immunoglobulin secretion after antigen stimulation. Furthermore, lymphokines together with other cytokines regulate the growth and differentiation of hemopoetic cells. As I have learned from Dick Gershon, our knowledge of the cellular basis for immunoregulation has come a long way since 450 B.C. Thucydides comments on the possible role of immune response in controlling the Black Death. Dick Gershon speculated that no scientific interest for these interesting observations was put forth at that time. Perhaps the problems, the Athenians were having with the Spartans, converted money from basis research into the military budget.

Focus on Lung Cancer Research

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world and a major cause of death. This new book brings together stellar research from around the world. The two main types of primary lung cancer small cell and non-small cell are examined. The book's scope encompasses the three main types of non-small cell lung cancer: squamous cell carcinoma which is the commonest type of lung cancer and develops in the cells which line the airways; adenocarcinoma develops from the cells which produce mucus in the lining of the airways; large cell carcinoma gets its name from the large, rounded cells that are seen when they are examined under the microscope. About 1 in 5 lung cancers are small cell, the rest non-small cell. Causes of lung cancer are primarily smoking, but include as well exposure to radon, asbestos, uranium, arsenic, and certain petroleum products. Research and new drugs are appearing with increasing frequency in this field.
