The results from a prospective randomized trial comparing two different radiation schedules for treatment of painful bone metastases in women with recurrent breast cancer are presented. A total of 217 patients with painful bone metastases were randomized to either 30 Grey (Gy) in ten fractions, five fractions a week (5F/W) or 15 Gy in three fractions 2F/W.(More)
In this patient, parent and investigator blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled study, children undergoing tonsillectomy (mean age 6.4 years) received either intravenous placebo (n=36) or tropisetron 0.2 mg.kg-1 up to 5 mg (n=35) at induction of anaesthesia with halothane, nitrous oxide and oxygen. Morphine and paracetamol were given in theatre for(More)
AIM The risk of local recurrence following curative surgery for colorectal cancer (CRC) is up to 50%. A rigorous follow-up program may increase survival. Guidelines on suitable methods for scheduled follow up examinations are needed. This study evaluates a strict follow-up program including carcinogenic embryonic antigen (CEA), chest X-ray, abdominal(More)
UNLABELLED Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a potent neutrophil chemoattractant and activator. Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is associated with an accumulation of neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid. Thus, we hypothesized that IL-8 is involved in the pathogenesis of P. carinii pneumonia. BAL fluid and serum were prospectively collected in 76(More)
To aid in therapy selection for patients with spinal bone metastases (SBM), predictive models have been developed. These models consider SBM from breast cancer a positive predictive factor, but do not take phenotypes based on estrogen (ER), progesterone (PR) and human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2) receptors into account. The aim of this study was to(More)
Methods: The International Hernia Mesh Registry was queried for femoral hernia repairs from 2007 to 2013. Laparoscopic versus open femoral hernia repair technique was assessed for recurrence and QOL, as quantified by the Carolinas Comfort Scale (CCS) preoperatively and at I, 6, 12, and 24-months postoperatively.
