Electroencephalography and neuroimaging failed to detect any responsible functional or structural changes.(More)
Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is a rare mesenchymal tumor with an unpredictable natural history. We present the first reported case of PEComa of the vagina diagnosed in an 8-year-old girl. This was initially diagnosed on biopsy as an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, and the patient underwent 3 cycles of chemotherapy according to the Mesenchymal(More)
Preservation of the donor heart is an important and controversial subject in heart transplantation. This study compares simple hypothermic storage and hypothermic perfusion in a swine model of heart transplantation (n = 14). The donor hearts of group A (n = 7) were placed in simple hypothermic storage for 5 hours. The donor hearts of group B (n = 7) were(More)
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of death from gynaecological malignancy in the UK. The pathogenesis of this disease is poorly understood. Our hypothesis was that chlamydial infection might play a role in the pathogenesis of EOC. METHODS 122 serum samples of patients undergoing surgery for benign or malignant(More)
The use of the iron chelator deferiprone (L, CP20, 1,2-dimethyl-3-hydroxypyrid-4-one) for the treatment of diseases of iron overload and other disorders is problematic and requires further evaluation. In this study the efficacy, toxicity and mechanism of action of orally administered L were investigated in the guinea pig using the carbonyl iron model of(More)
Laboratory interactions (Quality of Evidence: high; no clinical significance) • Cobicistat (Stribild®, Tybost®), rilpivirine (Edurant®, Complera®) and dolutegravir (Tivicay®) containing regimens will increase serum creatinine by approximately 7-15 μmol/L during the first 4 weeks of treatment initiation due to inhibition of renal creatinine secretion.
