Summary

The researchers aim to test the hypothesis that children who were exposed to cytotoxic drugs in utero, develop normally. Furthermore, they aim to test the pharmacokinetics of these drugs. Children who were exposed to radiotherapy during pregnancy will also be included.

Description

In a prospective trial we invite children that were exposed to cytotoxic drugs or radiotherapy in utero for a standardized neurological and cardiological examination. The examinations will be done by qualified psychologists, neurological and cardiological pediatricians.

For the pharmacological part we will sample maternal blood after infusion of cytotoxic drugs. Samples will be analysed at the department of Clinical Pharmacology and results will be compared with the non-pregnant state.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
