BACKGROUND The aim of this study was: (i) to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of mammaglobin as a reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) marker of breast cancer cells; (ii) to determine the incidence of tumor cell contamination of hematopoietic samples from patients with breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS A nested RT-PCR assay(More)
Given the importance of surgery within the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology it is crucial to understand the process of wound healing and the suture available to surgical repair. The selection of the type of suture depends on the tissue and anatomical location. The approximation of wound edges can be made with natural or synthetic suture, mono or(More)
In this paper, the effects of tool corner design on the surface finish and productivity in turning of steel parts are presented. Surface finishing and has been investigated in finish turning of AISI 1045 steel using conventional and wiper (multi-radii) design inserts. Multiple linear regression models and neural network models are developed for predicting(More)
Core-needle biopsy (CNB) of breast lesions can be classified into 5 categories according to lesion type and associated risk of malignancy. B3 category (lesion of uncertain malignant potential) constitutes a challenging problem in clinical decision, with most ending in excisional biopsy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to establish the incidence of(More)
We have, in previous work developed, characterized and evaluated the biocompatibility of an engineered hyaluronic acid nanogel. Here we assess the targetability of a hyaluronic acid nanogel towards CD44 overexpressing cells, in vitro and in vivo. Results obtained by flow cytometry and confocal fluorescence microscopy shows that nanogel is greatly(More)
