To assess the prognostic and predictive significance of HER-2 overexpression and high expression of VEGF in high-risk patients with breast cancer treated with dose–dense sequential chemotherapy. From June 1997 until November 2000, 595 patients were randomized to three cycles of epirubicin (E) 110 mg/m2 followed by three cycles of paclitaxel (T) 250 mg/m2(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is thought to be a relatively common arrhythmia in the setting of noncardiac intensive care unit (ICU). However, data concerning AF deriving from such populations are scarce. In addition, it is unclear which of the wide spectrum of AF predictors are relevant to the ICU setting. OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze a hypothesis regarding the pathogenesis of endometriosis. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Two academic endometriosis referral centers. PATIENT(S) We evaluated operative and pathologic reports of 251 women who underwent laparoscopic or laparotomy treatment of endometrioma from August 1996 to February of 2002 at Yale University(More)
Human leukocyte antigen-DR (HLA-DR) has been implicated in eutopic and ectopic glandular epithelial cells in endometriosis. We investigated the expression of HLA-DR in endometriotic and adenomyotic tissues within the stromal and glandular cells. Moreover, we correlate the HLA-DR expression according the transvaginal ultrasonography findings. We studied(More)
BACKGROUND Data regarding new onset atrial fibrillation (nAF) in general, non-cardiac, intensive care unit (ICU) patients are limited. However, it has been suggested that nAF is associated with worse clinical outcome in these patients. OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present work was to study the prognostic impact of nAF, in this setting. METHODS We(More)
