PURPOSE To study the predictive value of pretreatment potential doubling time and labeling index, as measured by flow cytometry in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma treated with conventional radiotherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS 70 patients with a squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx and 4 patients with another involved head and neck(More)
An improved high-performance liquid chromatographic assay for the determination of procainamide and N-acetylprocainamide (NAPA) at concentrations observed up to 32 h after a single oral dose administration of procainamide to human subjects is reported. Following liquid-liquid extraction of plasma samples, procainamide, NAPA, and the internal standard(More)
OBJECTIVES Indications of colorectal resection for endometriosis are controversial because of the risk of major complications. This study aims to evaluate the value of different diagnostic tests in decision-making, and to evaluate the surgical results and complications, as well as long-term functional results after surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS In the set(More)
The neurological outcome is an important issue regarding twin pregnancies. In fact, twin pregnancy is clearly associated with an important neurological morbidity, roughly 4 times higher than singleton pregnancy. It is possible to distinguish some high-risk situations, making it possible to calculate more accurately the individual risk. The different(More)
Genetic variation for more than 40 traits was assessed in 26 stocks of mature chickens reared together and fed ad libitum from hatching to slaughter at 507 days of age. There was greater genetic variation among males than among females. The intraclass correlation, t, was high (greater than .75) for measures of size and weight and moderate (.20 to .60) for(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate safety and fertility outcome after the use of infertility drugs in patients who were treated conservatively for a borderline ovarian tumor (BOT). DESIGN A retrospective multicenter study. SETTING Centers participating in the French National Register on In Vitro Fertilization registry. PATIENT(S) Thirty patients who were treated(More)
Gene amplifications in the q13 band of chromosome 11 are among the most frequent genetic alterations in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Previous studies have suggested that such amplification is a marker of aggressive tumor evolution. Their potential for predicting subclinical lymph node invasion or disease recurrence was investigated in a(More)
Improving the information delivered to pregnant women with adjustable gastric banding is desirable. Indeed, we report a case of peritonitis on gastric banding due to Klebsiella pneumoniae complicated with fetal death. Then, we discuss the specific risks of infection on the gastric band during pregnancy. Although, according to the literature, prophylactic(More)
Gene amplifications occurring in the q13 band of chromosome 11 are frequently observed in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. In order to determine the relative frequency of amplification in 5 distinct 11q13 loci and their relation with clinical data, tumor DNAs from 31 patients - including 26 who had undergone neck dissection (lymph node histology(More)
Experimental control Strains 30, representative of commercial broiler dam stocks in the late 1970's, and K, representative of commercial broiler stocks of 20 years earlier, were compared. Development of carcass fatness and related traits and physiological traits from 3 to 17 weeks of age were studied. About 12 chickens of mixed sex of each strain were bled(More)
