Nephroblastoma in the Black child: a review of treatment in the Johannesburg Paediatric Tumour Clinic


, : Nephroblastoma in the Black child: a review of treatment in the Johannesburg Paediatric Tumour Clinic. South African Medical Journal 51(7): 194-196

Twenty-five Black children with nephroblastoma who were referred to the Paediatric Tumour Clinic during the preceding 4 years, are reviewed. Results indicate that in the case of a locally advanced, fixed, primary tumour, initial surgery, even if it is combined with chemotherapy, may be a factor in the rapid postoperative development of multiple pulmonary metastases. Pre-operative irradiation appeared to be advantageous for these patients. Long-term chemotherapy holds no advantage over short-term chemotherapy.

The heterogeneous ribonucleoprotein A18 (hnRNP A18) is upregulated in hypoxic regions of various solid tumors and promotes tumor growth via the coordination of mRNA transcripts associated with pro-survival genes. Thus, hnRNP A18 represents an impo...

How level of personality organization (LPO) predicts psychiatric symptoms and work ability in short- versus long-term psychotherapies is poorly known. We investigated the importance of the LPO on the benefits of short-term versus long-term psychot...
