The present study utilized a mouse model of 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide-induced oral carcinogenesis to examine the alterations in immune phenotype at the(More)
Although patients undergoing acute hemodialysis (HD) constitute a group at risk for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), the optimal therapeutic strategy remains undefined. We describe a case of HIT complicated with right subclavian vein thrombosis in a patient with chronic renal insufficiency undergoing acute HD for oligoanuria and pulmonary edema.(More)

On the basis of two cases, one a fistula and the other a cyst of the first brachial cleft with chiefly parotid manifestations, a review of the embryology is given which explains the anatomical features. The elements in their clinical diagnosis, complemented by fistulography and sialography are compared with operative findings, the essential steps in which(More)
