When chemotherapy is used in androgen-independent prostate cancer (AIPC), androgen deprivation is continued despite its failure. In this study, we investigated whether it was possible to re-induce hormone sensitivity in previously castrate patients by stopping endocrine therapy during chemotherapy. A phase II prospective study investigated the effects of(More)
Forty-two patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were resected and their tumours were analysed for p53 mutations by GC-clamped denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) and gene sequencing. All the exons have been analysed in this study. Eight of 12 HCCs with cirrhosis due to viral hepatitis and the(More)
Seventy-five nude mice received subcutaneous inoculation with 1 X 10(7) cells of the human colonic cancer cell lines COLO-320 or HT-29. Tumour growth was assessed over 4 weeks in animals given one of three iso-caloric diets; standard diet, high saturated fat (20% coconut) diet and high n-3 fat (20% Maxepa fish oil) diet. The n-3 diet produced significant(More)
Flesinoxan is a potent and selective 5-HT1A receptor agonist. In this study, the effects of this compound on behavior in the murine elevated plus-maze have been assessed using a recently developed ethological scoring method. Results show that, at low doses (0.1-0.5 mg/kg), flesinoxan inhibited risk assessment behaviors (stretched attend postures and closed(More)
In the fetal lamb model of hypoxic-ischaemic injury, the insult is followed by EEG depression, after which seizures emerge at 7-13 hours. We explored the relationship between the emergence of electrographic seizures and our estimate of the time of the cerebral injury in nine babies who underwent continuous video-EEG monitoring from soon after birth. Babies(More)
Soft tissue sarcomas are uncommon malignancies that have a high risk of local recurrence despite adequate initial surgery. The aim of follow-up imaging with any malignancy is to detect recurrence promptly so that treatment can be instigated at the earliest possible opportunity. In this review article, we discuss the imaging modalities that can be employed(More)
