BACKGROUND The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma may be difficult because the clinical picture is variable. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper is to report our experience and to review the published data on the diagnostic significance and risks of the clonidine suppression test in the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS 114 patients were(More)
Recent objective studies demonstrate relatively low hours of nightly use during nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Patients frequently complain of dyspnea or discomfort during CPAP use, especially during expiration (against the continuous pressure), which may be a reason for the low hours of use. We(More)
Reperfusion of the lung after hemorrhage generates free radicals such as superoxide (O(2)(.)) that may injure the lung; however, the relative importance of intracellular versus extracellular free radicals is unclear. The superoxide dismutases (SOD) are the primary enzymatic method to reduce superoxide. We examined whether lung-specific overexpression of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate lymphocyte subpopulations in 17 patients with malignant ascites due to serous papillary adenocarcinoma of the ovary. Eight patients had not been treated prior to the study whereas nine patients had been treated by surgery and chemotherapy. A panel of monoclonal antibodies against surface markers that correlate with(More)
To establish the prognostic parameters of DNA distributions of squamous-cell carcinomas of the uterine cervix, cervical smears from 30 patients were examined cytomorphometrically ten years after the diagnosis had been made. Most of the patients had stage II cervical carcinomas that had been treated with primary combined irradiation. In the DNA histograms,(More)
There are mostly metaplastic cells, which are affected by chlamydia, show a dense usually cyanophilic cytoplasm with vacuolization. They are characterized by more or less round granula, sometimes also amorphous inclusion bodies. The vacuoles are multiple and mostly perinuclear, sometimes the nucleus is pushed aside like a signet-ring cell. Also columnar(More)
