BACKGROUND Epidemiological studies indicate that consumption of cruciferous vegetables (CV) can reduce the risk of cancer. Supposed mechanisms are partly the inhibition of phase I and the induction of phase II enzymes. AIM The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro and in vivo effects of watercress (WC), a member of the CV family, on(More)
The 1-dimensional heterodyne gauge—consisting of optical and mechanical components, specialized electronics, and software—is the heart of the SIM interferometer metrology system. We propose a series of experiments that will build on the past 15 years or so of research on such gauges, conducted both within and external to JPL. The ultimate goal of these(More)
Macroscopic discrimination between amelanotic malignant melanoma (aMM) and the so-called granuloma pyogenicum (GP) is often uncertain since reliable criteria for a clear differentiation of either growth are lacking. In a search of such criteria we analysed the data of 57 consecutive in-patients with cutaneous aMM and of 83 with GP presenting at our(More)
The reliability of sonography and peritoneal lavage in assessing the need for immediate surgical intervention in blunt abdominal trauma was examined in a controlled prospective and retrospective study. Whereas no false results occurred using peritoneal lavage, false negative findings in sonography were 9.8% and false positive findings 3.9%. A significant(More)
From 1.1.1976 to 31.12.1983 1,793 laparotomies were performed on children up to the age of 15 years at the Hospital of Pediatric Surgery, Mainz University. The incidence of acute unplannend relaparotomies was 4.6%. The most frequent indication of acute relaparotomy was postoperative obstruction due to adhesions (in 53 % of all cases); burst abdomen,(More)
From 1.1.1976 to 31.12.1983 1,793 laparotomies were performed on children up to the age of 15 years at the Hospital of Pediatric Surgery, Mainz University. The incidence of acute unplanned relaparotomies was 4.6%. The most frequent indication of acute relaparotomy was postoperative obstruction due to adhesions (in 53% of all cases); burst abdomen,(More)
