Gain saturation increases the radiative component, Jrad, of the threshold current density, Jth, and its contribution to the thermal sensitivity of Jth in short cavity or low QD density devices. However, the main cause of their thermal sensitivity is a strong non-radiative recombination.

    ABSTRACT: The malignant potential of superficial elevated type tumors is still controversial. Because biopsy specimens alone are sometimes not sufficient for diagnosis due to histologic heterogeneity within the tumor, other clinical parameters for evaluation of the degree of malignancy would be helpful. A new morphometric parameter, the "F-circle," which represents the irregularity of the tumor margin, was studied in 115 endoscopically recognized superficial, flat, elevated type colorectal tumors without a central depressed area with respect to histologic evaluation of the degree of malignancy. The mean F-circle values of adenomatous lesions with mild or moderate atypia, severe atypia, and adenocarcinoma were 0.709+/-0.115, 0.619+/-0.149, and 0.536+/-0.133, respectively. The superficial elevated type of colorectal tumor having more marginal irregularity had a greater malignant potential, and the F-circle may be a useful clinical parameter for evaluation of the degree of malignancy.

    ABSTRACT: The malignant potential of adenomas of the colon and rectum varies with size, histological type and grade of epithelial atypia. The adenomatous polyp is usually small and has a low malignant potential, whereas tumors with a villous structure are usually larger and have a much higher cancer rate. Severe atypia is more common in villous adenomas than in adenomatous polyps. Evidence is presented which suggests that most cancers of the colon and rectum have evolved through the polyp-cancer sequence although the majority of adenomas do not becoma cancerous during a normal adult life span. The slow evolution of the polyp-cancer sequence is stressed. The implications of the polyp-cancer sequence for the design of cancer prevention programmes and the study of the aetiology of large bowel cancer are discussed.
