||Patient refuses chemotherapy. Addition of a liquid, shark cartilage-based
extract to the diet.
||Abdominal CAT scan; Both pulmonary areas appear normal. No
visible masses in the mediastinum. On the other
hand, in the abdominal region we find individualized
adenopathies and others that merge to form sort
of lines toward the para-aortic region and surround
the mesenteric vessels. These adenopathies begin

reach the iliac crests.
||Abdominal CAT scan: The previous exam revealed adenopathies
on the right side, around the carotid and the
jugular vein (2.5cm in diameter); they have totally
resorbed. There is no suspicious adenopathy in
the cervical region. No abnormalities in the thoracic
region. In the abdominal region, the liver, the
spleen, the kidneys, and the pancreas appear normal.
Retro-crural, retro-peritoneal and inter-aorto-cavous
ganglia have markedly decreased in volume. Marked
resorption compared to previous exam.
||Thoracic and abdominal CAT scans: Thoracic region unchanged;
no mediaslinal adenopathy, nor mediastino-pleural
mass. No adenopathy in the axillas. In the abdominal
region, there is a voluminous adenopathy over
the right renal hilus (already present on the
||Thoracic and abdominal CAT scans: No mediaslinal adenopathy
in the thoracic region, nor in the aortic window
or the lungs. In the abdominal region, the multiple
adenopathies described in the previous exam have
decreased in volume and number by 50 % to 75 %.
||CAT scan of the neck: Regression in volume and number of 95
% of the cervical adenopathies described
||CAT scan of the neck, the thorax and the abdomen: In the neck
region multiple cervical adenopathies arc found
on the right, and their number and aspect have
not changed since the December 1994 examination.
In the thoracic and abdominal regions only persist
small retro-peritoneal adenopathies that have
not progressed since the December 1994 examination.
