We report the cytogenetic evaluation of 20 cultured cell strains derived from primary prostatic adenocarcinomas obtained from radical prostatectomies. The majority of the strains contained cells with only normal male karyotypes (46,XY), but cytogenetically abnormal clonal populations were found in five strains. Two of those strains contained aberrations(More)
The cytogenetic evaluation of 30 cultured primary prostatic cancer specimens obtained during radical prostatectomies of patients with relatively early stage disease is reported. The majority of specimens examined showed a normal male karyotype, 46,XY. Nine samples contained clonally abnormal populations including five specimens which were hyperdiploid(More)
Analysis of ten primary prostatic tumor cultures using fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) with pericentromeric probes for chromosomes 7, 8, 10, 16, 17, and 18 revealed aneusomies in nine of these specimens. Classical cytogenetics by G-banding indicated that only four of those same ten specimens had any (but not consistent) clonal abnormalities. This(More)
Human cathepsin D (hCatD) is an aspartic peptidase with a low pH optimum. X-ray crystal structures have been solved for an active, low pH (pH 5.1) form (CatD(lo)) [Baldwin, E. T., Bhat, T. N., Gulnik, S., Hosur, M. V., Sowder, R. C., Cachau, R. E., Collins, J., Silva, A. M., and Erickson, J. W. (1993) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 90, 6796-6800] and an(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess radiation exposure and operator discomfort when using left radial approach (LRA) versus right radial approach (RRA) for coronary diagnostic and percutaneous interventions. BACKGROUND The transradial approach is increasingly being adopted as the preferred vascular access for coronary interventions. Currently, most are(More)
Marker chromosomes contain potentially valuable information about breakpoints in cancer. However, routine banding procedures, by themselves, provide only limited information about the identity of marker chromosomes. In this study, the use of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with chromosome-specific centromeric probes and whole-chromosome-specific(More)
The use of an implantable cardiac defibrillator has been advocated as the only effective treatment for the management of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada Syndrome (BrS). However, this device is only useful for terminating VF. Intermittent and/or recalcitrant VF for which lifesaving cardioversion occurs is a problematic situation in(More)
