PURPOSE Approximately one-third of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring tumors with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)-sensitizing mutations (EGFRm) experience disease progression during treatment due to brain metastases. Despite anecdotal reports of EGFR-TKIs providing benefit in some patients with EGFRm NSCLC brain metastases,(More)

AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the FO influences growth and chemosensitivity of(More)
Tear flow and volume were measured in 15 normal volunteers, divided into young and old age groups, using subjective fluorophotometric analysis and Schirmer testing with and without topical anesthesia. Proparacaine 0.5% was found to anesthetize cornea and conjunctiva better than cocaine 4% and produced fewer complications. Older subjects responded to(More)
The only generally recognised form of treatment for primary liver cell carcinomas is partial liver resection; occasionally this may be curative. This form of treatment is only applicable in 5% to 30% of patients. All drug-based forms of treatment have proved of little value. The new interventional radiological method of chemo-embolisation has shown results(More)
Between 1985 and 1990, 47 patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) underwent surgery (n = 27), chemoembolization (n = 12) or palliative resection followed by chemoembolization (n = 5). In 85% of the patients a T3/T4 tumor stage was found, 68% had liver cirrhosis and 42% were older than 70. Mortality was 18.7% after liver resection and 0% after(More)
BACKGROUND We surveyed the quality of risk stratification politics and monitored the rate of entries to our company-wide protocol for venous thrombembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in order to identify safety concerns. PATIENTS AND METHODS Audit in 464 medical and surgical patients to evaluate quality of VTE prophylaxis. RESULTS Patients were classified as low(More)
