Title: Clinico-pathological study of malignant lymphoma in Jamaica
Source: Br J Cancer;24(1):37-47, Mar. 1970.
Language: En.
Abstract: A clinico-pathological study of malignant lymphoma in Jamaica was undertaken to examine the disease pattern in a predominantly Negro population of West African origin. During a 9-year period (1958-66) 260 histologically verified cases of malignant lymphoma were encountered. The distribution of the different histological types was as follows: Hodgkin's disease 50.9 percent, lymphoma 1.9 percent. No cases of Burkitt's tumour were encountered. This study indicates that malignant lymphoma is not uncommon in Jamaica, and that its distribution pattern is similar to that observed in Europe and North America, except for the apucity of giant follicular lymphoma, and is different from the pattern observed in parts of Africa populated by Negroes, where Burkitt's tumour is the most common type, and where Hodgkin's disease is relatively uncommon. The age and sex incidence was in general similar to other reported series, but the duration of symptoms was short. The majority of patients presented with generalised periperal lymphadenopathy. Hepatosplenomegaly and anaemia were common on admission. The prognosis was generally poor in comparison with European and North American series due to advanced stage of disease on presentation.(Summary)

Title: Molecular epidemiology of HTLV-I-associated non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in Jamaica
Source: Cancer;61(7):1477-82, Apr. 1988.
Language: En.
Abstract: As part of epidemiologic studies of human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV)-I-associated malignancies in Jamaica, the authors evaluated 26 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for the presence of integrated HTLV-I provirus in their malignant cells. Fifteen of 26 patients had integrated provirus. All 15 also were HTLV-I antibody positive. Eleven patients did not have integrated provirus, and all 11 were antibody negative. All of the antibody-positive cases had onset of their disease in adulthood (age range, 21-57 years) as opposed to the broad age range of negative cases (4-66 years). Clinical features which were more common in provirus positive than negative patients included leukemic phase, skin involvement, and hypercalcemia, which are all features frequently seen in HTLV-I-associated adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL). The presence of skin involvement, circulating malignant cells, abnormal liver function tests, or the presence of two or more of these four features were statistically significantly different between virus-positive and virus-negative cases. Although the survival of positive cases (6 months) was shorter than that of negative cases (9 months), this was not statistically significant. The only significant determinant of survival was hypercalcemia, with those who developed hypercalcemia at some point in their disease course, independent of their HTLV-I status, surviving a mean of 5 months as compared to a mean of 17.5 months in those who never became hypercalcemic. The six HTLV-I-positive lymphomas that underwent cell typing were all primarily OKT4 positive, whereas two HTLV-I antibody-negative cases that were typed were B-cell lymphomas. (AU)

Title: Leptospirosis: a review of the Jamaican experience compared with other Caribbean territories
Source: West Indian med. j;31(2):54-60, June 1982.
Language: En.
Abstract: A review of the current literature relating to leptospirosis and its recent increased incidence in Jamaica has been undertaken. The data up to 1979 revealed that the greatest number of cases occurred in the parishes of Kingston and St. Andrew, St. Thomas, St. Catherine and Manchester. A more recent report, however, has shown that the largest number of cases came from the western parishes. Leptospirosis is an occupational hazard for field and factory workers, and these occupational groups demonstrated the highest incidence of the disease. Control of leptospirosis involves treatment of affected cases and attempts at eliminating carriers (AU)

Title: Hodgkin's disease in Jamaica: changing patterns in histological subtypes
Source: West Indian med. j;31(2):61-72, June 1982.
Language: En.
Abstract: Over a ten year period January, 1970 to July, 1979, 34 cases of Hodgkin's disease were reviewed at the University Hospital of the West Indies. Nodular sclerosis (NS) was the most frequent subtype followed by mixed cellularity (MC). There were no patients with lymphocyte depletion (LD) type NS occurred most commonly in the 15 - 29 age group while MC was relatively evenly distributed among the age groups. These findings are at a variance with an earlier report from our institution which indicated that MC was the most frequent subtype (AU)

Title: Hodgkin's disease in Jamaica: presenting clinical features
Source: West Indian med. j;33(2):64-7, June 1982.
Language: En.
Abstract: The presenting clinical features, including the results of laboratory investigations, in 34 patients with Hodgkin's disease seen at the University Hospital of the West Indies between January, 1970 and July, 1979 are described and compared with those of other investigators. There was a single peak age at occurrence, in young adults. Males predominated and there was a long delay between onset of symptoms and presentation or diagnosis. Most patients had advanced disease (Stage IIIB or IV). Lymphadenopathy and pain were the most common modes of presentation. Hypoalbuminaemia, raised serum alkaline phosphatase levels and lymphopenia usually indicated advanced disease (AU)

Title: Hodgkin's disease in Jamaica: response to treatment
Source: West Indian med. j;31(2):68-72, June 1982.
Language: En.
Abstract: This paper reviews the response to treatment in 34 patients with Hodgkins disease studied at the University Hospital of the West Indies between January 1970 and June 1979. Ten patients (Stage IA to Stage IIIA) had radiotherapy with curative intent. Nine of these achieved complete remission (CR) and one had a partial remission (PR). No death was recorded in this group. The median survival in the 20 patients treated with MOPP chemotherapy was 23 manths. Only six of these patients achieved (CR), 3 percent of these having a disease-free-survival of 7 to 44 months up to the end of the period of observation. Twelve patients treated with MOPP achieved PR and had a median survival of 22 months. Two patients did not respond to treatment. The poor response to MOPP therapy was due to poor patient compliance. Two patients achieved CR on COP therapy, and one had a PR on single-agent therapy (AU)
