Results Ninety-seven spontaneously menopausal or surgically cas trated women with proven metastatic breast carcinoma and measurable disease were selected for study. Six were soon found to be ineligible for this study 2 ER negative; 1 Stage IV, with no evidence of disease; 1 no tissue diagnosis; 1 concom itant oophorectomy; 1 extensive liver mtastases ; . Sixteen patients are inevaluable at this time Table 1 ; . Thus, there were 75 randomized, valuablepatients, 36 treated with aminoglu tethimide versus 39 treated with tamoxifen. The 2 groups of patients are comparable with respect to median age aminoglutethimide, 59 years, versus tamoxifen, 60 years ; , disease-free interval aminoglutethimide, 25 months, versus tamoxifen, 24 months, median ; , prior hormonal therapy, ER-positive aminoglutethimide, 47% of patients, versus ta moxifen, 46% of patients ; and ER unknown aminoglutethi mide, 53% of patients, versus tamoxifen, 54% of patients ; Tables 2 and 3 ; . The site of dominant disease is also similar in the 2 treatment groups Table 4 ; . All patients with bone involve ment had lytic mtastases. The overall objective response rate to tamoxifen is 38% 3 CR plus 12 PR ; , and that to aminoglutethimide is 36% 1 CR plus 12 PR ; . Eleven tamoxifen and 13 aminoglutethimide pa.
Was reduced to 22 mg m 2 . Antiemetics and growth factors were not used prophylactically and were initiated at the investigators' discretion. Radiation therapy and steroids were not initiated during the study; LHRH analogues could be continued if initiated before the study. Dose modifications were based on hematologic parameters obtained on the day of treatment and on the presence of fever or sepsis after the previous cycle. The dose was reduced by 50% if the granulocyte count was 1500-1999 mm 3 or platelet count was 75, 00099, 999 mm 3 . The dose was delayed one week if the granulocyte count was 1500 mm 3 or platelet count was 75, 000 mm 3 . The patient was removed from study if dose was delayed for more than three weeks. Finally, the dose was reduced by 25% if the granulocyte count was 2, 000 mm 3 and platelet count was 100, 000 mm 3 and 1 ; fever or sepsis was present after the previous cycle or 2 ; the dose was delayed for more than 2, but less than 3, weeks.

That steroids are essential for full maturation i.e. maturation compatible with subsequent normal embryonic development to term ; is demonstrated by the developmental potential of oocytes cultured in the presence or absence of added oestradiol17P fig. 2 ; . In the absence of added oestradiol-17p less than 5 p. 100 of oocytes developed to blastocysts despite the fact that meiosis had progressed to metaphase II in about 60 p. 100 of oocytes during culture. The effect of adding cestradiol-17 p to the medium was seen most clearly during post-maturational development ; abnormalities associated with fertilization and cleavage were significantly reduced and the percentage of fully differentiated blastocysts increased sevenfold by adding oestradiol17 to the medium during maturation. The role of steroids in the full maturation of ovine oocytes has been demonstrated further by experiments in which follicular steroidogenesis was inhibited in vitro by aminoglutethimide Moor, Polge and Willadsen, unpublished observations ; . Oocytes matured in the presence of gonadotrophin and aminoglutethimide become penetrated by sperm when transferred to the oviducts of inseminated females. However, abnormalities in the formation of the male pronucleus and in the block to polyspermy occurred in almost all oocytes matured in steroidogenically inactivated follicles. Discussion. essential mediators of the action of gonadotrophins during the oocytes in amphibia and fishes Schuetz, 1974 ; Smith, 1975 ; Jalabert, The results presented in this paper suggest that steroids play a similar role 1976 ; . in the maturation of mammalian oocytes. It is, however, clear that these hormones are not the final or sole mediators of gonadotrophin-induced maturation since steroids alone cannot induce maturational change in the nucleus or cytoplasm of mammalian oocytes Moor and Warnes, unpublished observations ; . The means by which exogenous oestrogen facilitates the full maturation of oocytes in vitro is difficult to define, particularly since the endogenous concentration of oestrogen in cultured follicles is many times greater than that observed in the preovulatory.
Mammals are constantly exposed to environmental toxic chemicals, mostly through dietary intake. One of the most important functions of liver is to detoxify the ingested toxin. Environmental toxins may damage liver after ingestion and accordingly animals have evolved with the ability to repair damaged liver through regeneration. Liver regeneration is an evolutionary adaptive response to the constant exposure of toxic compounds, viral infection and ischemia 1 ; . Experimentally, liver regeneration can be induced in animal models by removing the large and median lobes of liver [two-third partial hepatectomy PH ; ] 2 ; The remaining liver grows rapidly and restores the original mass within a few days 3 ; . Liver regeneration involves a complex interplay of signaling events, which are precise and highly regulated to ensure the functional restoration of damaged liver 1 ; . In response to PH, over 95% of the hepatocytes exit the G0-phase and and anaprox.

Clinical data on 12 patients with idiopathic PAP treated with aerosolised GM-CSF, all improved both symptomatically and by objective measurement of pulmonary function. Though radiological improvement was variable, all but one patient had a significant improvement in gas exchange. Recently, several causes of idiopathic PAP in adults have been determined including, high affinity auto-antibodies , failure of PBMCs to release GM-CSF following LPS stimulation possibly due to mutation in the GM-CSF complementary DNA ; [29, 30], as well as expression defects in the GM-CSF interleukin IL ; -3 IL-5 receptor common b-chain in children with PAP . In secondary PAP, such as haematopoietic malignancies numerical deficiency and or functional impairment of alveolar macrophages may be causal . Although the present retrospective study is small and there was no intention to thoroughly investigate disease mechanisms, in those patients tested, measurable antibody to GM-CSF was demonstrated. Additionally, for clinical purposes, and prior to studies by others , three patients had either reduced expression or activity of GM-CSF, or abnormal GM-CSF receptor expression in PBMCs ; which may, in addition, have contributed to the clinical disease. Though these findings are inconclusive, the possibility remains that distinct mechanisms altering GM-CSF activity, other than high affinity auto-antibody, may be responsible for some clinical cases of acquired idiopathic PAP. Nonetheless, neither the magnitude of neutralising antibody to GM-CSF nor these variations prevented, nor correlated, with the magnitude of improvement following aerosolised GM-CSF. The present authors did not measure neutralising capacity against GM-CSF in BALF before or during treatment. However, results by TAZAWA et al.  show that inhalation of GM-CSF restores the bioactivity in the lung and androgel.
Terms of pain relief that lasts several months in more than 50% of cases. Some investigators  have noted a benefit in survival. However, strontium 89 may induce transient increases in bone pain or flare-up within the first few days of administration. There is also the possibility of thrombocytopenia grade III to IV in more than 20% of cases. It is highly advisable to employ steroids during at least the first month of treatment. Samarium 153, a new radionuclide at a dose of 1 mCi kg, induces pain relief in 62%-72% of patients with no instances of grade 4 and, rarely, grade 3 myelosuppressive toxicity . ADVICE ON TREATMENT SELECTION Metastatic prostate cancer must be treated as quickly as possible. This is because of the risk of complications, particularly spinal cord compression, increases with time. Another factor is the recognition that patients in general appear to favor quality of life rather than length of survival. A recent randomized study shows a significant benefit of early treatment compared to delayed treatment based on the evolution of the disease, its complications, and the survival related to prostate cancer . Androgen blockade is the treatment of choice, but should it be total TAB ; or selective? For TAB, which AA should be used? Castration may be surgical bilateral orchiectomy ; or medical with LHRH agonists all the different agonists have the same activity ; . The first option has the advantage of its simplicity, its moderate cost, and its permanence. The second approach provides the psychological comfort of temporary castration. Several studies have shown the superiority of TAB [16, 20, 22, 52] over medical castration alone. The nonsteroidal AA cyproterone acetate has never shown any benefits in survival when associated with medical castration . Surgical castration seems to diminish the benefit of TAB . Intermittent treatment is still under investigation. The first clinical results indicate that it may delay the occurrence of hormone resistance  and that it is not a harmful method M. Zerbib, personal communication ; . In cases of progression under AA treatment, its withdrawal may bring about a 20% response decrease of the values of PSA 50% ; . This effect has been observed with various AAs including not only flutamide but also bicalutamide and megestrol acetate . However, the possible benefit lasts only a few months, raising the question of a second-line treatment: new AA, aromatase inhibitors, estrogens, or chemotherapy. Bicalutamide, as a single agent 150 mg d ; , is active after the failure of flutamide but the contrary has not been proven . The activity of megestrol acetate is very weak  and less interesting than the aromatase inhibitors. The association of aminoglutethimide with hydrocortisone is well tolerated and gives an approximate 50% response rate  and aminoglutethimide.
Figure 1 shows a chromatogram of an aminoglutethimide standard and two patients' samples. The aminoglutethimide has a retention time of 2.5 mm, corresponding to a retention volume of 5 mL. Although aminoglutethimide is not resolved completely from the preceding peak, other experiments not shown ; on patients' sera before medication, or after cessation of treatment, indicate that the preceding peak has returned to baseline before 2.5 nun. Results using this method are linear to a plasma concentration of at least 1.5 mmol L 10 ninol injected onto the column ; , 30-fold the upper limitof the therapeutic range. As estimated from the peak-to-noise ratio, the limit of detectability of aininoglutethimide is less than 1 mol L in plasma. We performed recovery and imprecision studies on pooled plasma supplemented with aminoglutethimide at two concentrations. Recovery at 20 LmolfL ranged from 100 to 110%, mean 107% n 20 within-batch imprecision CV ; was 2.3% n 20 ; and between-batch was 3.6% n 10 ; . Recovery at 100 .Lmol L ranged from 98 to 105% mean 102% n 20 within-batch imprecision CV ; was 2.0% n 20 and antabuse.
