The Prevalence and Significance of Oestrogen Receptor (ER) Positivity in Breast Cancer at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.121
Pages: 
795–801
Synopsis: 
Oestrogen receptor (ER) status was positive in 125 (63%) and negative in 74 (37%) patients diagnosed with breast cancer. By comparing the cohorts of ER negative to ER positive patients, one can accurately identify which clinical variables bear clinical significance in this population and are affected by ER status, as well as impact patient outcome.

ABSTRACT

 Objective:  To identify the prevalence of oestrogen receptor (ER) positivity, and determine the relationship of ER status with patient and tumour characteristics, in patients with breast cancer.

Clinicopathological Features of Atypical Nephrotic Syndrome in Jamaican Children

Issue: 
Pages: 
319–24
Synopsis: 
In this retrospective review of 157 renal biopsies in Jamaican children with nephrotic syndrome between 1985–2008, mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis predominated. Hypertension, hypocomplementaemia, anaemia and renal failure in childhood nephrotic syndrome predicted more severe nephritis and should prompt nephrological consultation.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To document the histopathological spectrum of atypical nephrotic syndrome in Jamaican children and to make clinicopathological correlations which will assist physicians in identifying patients needing nephrology consultation.

Renal Biopsy Findings in Jamaican Children

Issue: 
Pages: 
325–9
Synopsis: 
In 270 Jamaican children undergoing renal biopsy, diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis was the commonest histology observed. Hepatitis B caused 83.3% of membranous nephropathy. The role of infection in the pathogenesis of renal disease in Jamaican children is probably underestimated.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To document the histological findings in Jamaican children undergoing renal biopsy in order to determine the relative prevalence of varying types of glomerular disease in the island.

Renal Histological Findings in Adults in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
265–9
Synopsis: 
For primary glomerular disease, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis, minimal and membranous glomerulonephritis were the most frequent histological types.

ABSTRACT

Background: In 2006, it was reported that Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD) and Membranous Glomerulonephritis (MGN) were the commonest primary glomerular diseases identified from percutaneous kidney biopsies done in Jamaica for that year (n = 76). The sample size was thought to be small and might have affected the reported findings. So a threeyear review of percutaneous kidney biopsies in Jamaica was carried out.
