Performance of four ribosomal DNA regions to infer higher-level phylogenetic relationships of inoperculate euascomycetes (Leotiomyceta).
The inoperculate euascomycetes are filamentous fungi that form saprobic, parasitic, and symbiotic associations with a wide variety of animals, plants, cyanobacteria, and other fungi. The higher-levelExpand

Comparison of prostate IMRT and VMAT biologically optimised treatment plans.
Recently, a new radiotherapy delivery technique has become clinically available--volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). VMAT is the delivery of IMRT while the gantry is in motion using dynamic leafExpand

Phase I study of twice-weekly gemcitabine and concurrent thoracic radiation for patients with locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity of twice-weekly gemcitabine and concurrent thoracic radiation in patients with Stage IIIa/IIIb non-small-cell lungExpand

Sequential multiple-assignment randomized trial design of neurobehavioral treatment for patients with metastatic malignant melanoma undergoing high-dose interferon-alpha therapy
Background Interferon-alpha therapy, which is used to treat metastatic malignant melanoma, can cause patients to develop two distinct neurobehavioral symptom complexes: a mood syndrome and aExpand

Pleiotropy of C-reactive protein gene polymorphisms with C-reactive protein levels and heart rate variability in healthy male twins.
Reduced heart rate variability (HRV) and increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels are both predictors of coronary artery disease and correlate with each other. We examined whether these 2 phenotypesExpand
