"In this review, we examine theories, data, and research on the macroeconomic relationship between international migration and national development in all world regions. Earlier reviews have generally been pessimistic about the prospects for economic development as a result of international migration. Until recently, however, theories and data have not(More)
BACKGROUND The role of systematic aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy in patients with optimally debulked advanced ovarian cancer is unclear and has not been addressed by randomized studies. We conducted a randomized clinical trial to determine whether systematic aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy improves progression-free and overall survival compared with(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively determine the accuracy of combination positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) in lymph node staging in patients with early-stage cervical cancer, with histopathologic results as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was institutional review board approved, and all patients gave informed consent.(More)
The effects of vinblastine (VBL) on endothelial cell functions involved in angiogenesis, namely proliferation, chemotaxis, spreading on fibronectin (FN), secretion of matrix-metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and MMP-9, and morphogenesis on Matrigel were tested in vitro, whereas its effects on angiogenesis were studied in vivo by using the chick embryo(More)
No randomised trials have addressed the value of systematic aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy (SL) in ovarian cancer macroscopically confined to the pelvis. This study was conducted to investigate the role of SL compared with lymph nodes sampling (CONTROL) in the management of early stage ovarian cancer. A total of 268 eligible patients with macroscopically(More)
BACKGROUND Results of salvage therapy in patients with carcinoma of the uterine cervix recurrent after surgery have been dismal even when the disease was apparently confined to the pelvis. Concurrent chemoradiation is one of the several avenues being investigated to improve these results. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-five women with recurrent cervical(More)
We sought to determine the cis-acting elements responsible for the pattern of tissue specific expression of the mouse alpha 2(I) collagen gene. Using an RNase protection assay we first verified that expression of the alpha 2(I) collagen gene is mainly confined to tendons, bone, and skin in mice. Both transgenic mice and DNA transfection of tissue culture(More)
Bone marrow endothelial cells (EC) from patients with multiple myeloma (MM) were found to express and secrete higher amounts of the CXC-chemokines CXCL8/interleukin (IL)-8, CXCL11/interferon-inducible T-cell alpha chemoattractant (I-TAC), CXCL12/stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1alpha, and CCL2/monocyte chemotactic protein(MCP)-1 than EC from human(More)
BACKGROUND Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is increasingly being used for the treatment of bulky and locally-advanced cervical cancer. Cisplatin and ifosfamide are known to be effective in cervical cancer, while paclitaxel is one of the promising new drugs for the treatment of this neoplasm. OBJECTIVE To assess the toxic effects and antitumor activity of a(More)
A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B(+) → K(+)μ(+)μ(-) and B(+) → K(+)e(+)e(-) decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1), recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton(More)
