Methylazoxymethanol (MAM), a powerful antimitotic, has been extensively used to affect rodent CNS development. Here we show that MAM causes different effects on mouse cerebellum depending on the age of the injected pup. Sublethal doses were determined for each age. A single injection at birth permanently reduces the number of cells. In addition, the(More)
We report the rare occurrence of fatal cardiac tamponade due to coronary sinus and right atrial thrombosis associated with central venous catheterization. The clinical course was extremely rapid, with death occurring a few minutes after the acute clinical event. Other causes of acute cardiac tamponade were ruled out by the postmortem studies.
PURPOSE Multicenter study conducted to determine the impact on biochemical control and survival of risk-adapted androgen deprivation (AD) combined with high-dose three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) for prostate cancer. Results of biochemical control are reported. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between October 1999 and October 2001, 416 eligible(More)
PURPOSE We compared biochemical control and quality of life with intermittent (6 months) versus continuous (36 months) androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in a non-inferiority randomized phase 3 trial in patients with biochemical failure (BF) after external beam radical radiotherapy (EBRT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients were stratified according to the(More)
