PURPOSE Despite the increasing burden of cancer occurred over recent years in the African continent, epidemiologic data from Northern Africa area have been so far sparse or absent. We present most recently available data from the Benghazi Cancer Registry concerning cancer incidence and mortality as well as the most comprehensive survival data set so far(More)
α- and β-MnO(2) were controllably synthesized by hydrothermally treating amorphous MnO(2) obtained via a reaction between Mn(2+) and MnO(4)(-), and cationic effects on the hydrothermal crystallization of MnO(2) were investigated systematically. The crystallization is believed to proceed by a dissolution-recrystallization mechanism; i.e. amorphous MnO(2)(More)
Diffuse bullous disease of the lung in miliary tuberculosis associated with bilateral pneumothorax is a rare entity with grave prognosis. We describe the case of a 24-year-old woman in her first trimester of pregnancy with extensive bilateral pulmonary infiltrates as seen on computed tomographic scan of the lung. She had simultaneous bilateral pneumothorax(More)
Detailed electrochemical studies have been undertaken on molecular aggregation of the organic semiconductor 7,14-bis((triisopropylsilyl)-ethynyl)dibenzo[b,def]chrysene (TIPS-DBC), which is used as an electron donor material in organic solar cells. Intermolecular association of neutral TIPS-DBC molecules was established by using (1)H NMR spectroscopy as well(More)
The association of endodermal sinus tumor, known also as yolk sac tumor, of the mediastinum with hemophagocytic syndrome is exceedingly rare with only a few cases on record. We report a 24-year-old male who had a large mediastinal germ cell tumor, proven to be an endodermal sinus tumor on biopsy. The patient developed pancytopenia and coagulopathy related(More)
