Event-related fMRI was used to investigate the hypothesis that neural activity involved in response inhibition depends upon the nature of the response being inhibited. Two different Go/No-go tasks were compared-one with a high working memory load and one with low. The 'simple' Go/No-go task with low working memory load required subjects to push a button in(More)
BACKGROUND Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been shown to be associated with anomalous motor development, including excessive overflow movements. The neurological basis of these deficits has not been established. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to determine whether differences in brain activation during sequential(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to determine whether the substantial benefits of topical nitroglycerin with first-line, platinum-based, doublet chemotherapy in advanced nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) seen in a phase II trial could be corroborated in a rigorous, multicenter, phase III trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients starting one of five, prespecified,(More)
In a study of a sample of 317 conceptional basal body temperature (BBT) curves obtained from normal women, the authors have applied new definitions of prematurity and postmaturity which take into account the time of ovulation. They were thus able to estimate (1) the error rates associated with the classical definitions-incorrect classification as pre- or(More)
Human placental lactogen (HPL) was measured in 525 serum samples from 144 pregnant women and related to smoking habits and the birth weight of their infants. Women smoking during pregnancy were found to have a level of HPL significantly lower than the non-smokers (p less than 0.05). A significant correlation between HPL and birth weight was found (r=0.38);(More)
BACKGROUND Docetaxel (Taxotere) improve survival and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response rates in patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). We studied the combination of PI-88, an inhibitor of angiogenesis and heparanase activity, and docetaxel in chemotherapy-naive CRPC. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a multicentre(More)
Gastric cancers that secrete alpha-foetoprotein (AFP) are a rare but well defined entity. These tumours tend to be aggressive with a poor prognosis. Recognition and identification of this group of patients is important in influencing prognosis, treatment options and further clinical research into this entity. We report three cases of gastric cancers(More)
In studying the BBT curves of 433 conceptional cycles, no evidence was found of any correlation between duration of gestation counted from "zero" day, the last day of the hypothermic phase, and various parameters measuring durations or temperatures evaluated from the curves. There is, in particular, no positive correlation with the duration of the(More)
