Purpose To determine indexes of skeletal integrity by using computed tomographic (CT) trabecular texture analysis of the lumbar spine in patients with anorexia nervosa and normal-weight control subjects and to determine body composition predictors of trabecular texture. Materials and Methods This cross-sectional study was approved by the institutional(More)
Failure to localize membrane proteins to the primary cilium causes a group of diseases collectively named ciliopathies. Polycystin-1 (PC1, also known as PKD1) is a large ciliary membrane protein defective in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Here, we developed a large set of PC1 expression constructs and identified multiple sequences,(More)
AIM Considering that Ki-67 is a proliferative marker in molar pregnancies and the possible progression of these kinds of pregnancies to gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN), we decided to evaluate the rate of expression of this marker in patients with uneventful hydatidiform moles and GTN. Moreover, we determined the predictive value of this factor for(More)
Cardiothoracic diseases result in substantial morbidity and mortality. Chest computed tomography (CT) has been an imaging modality of choice for assessing a host of chest diseases, and technologic advances have enabled the emergence of coronary CT angiography as a robust noninvasive test for cardiac imaging. Technologic developments in CT have also enabled(More)
BACKGROUND The gestational trophoblastic neoplasms (GTNs) are rare and potentially life-threatening malignancies. AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the rate of response to weekly intramuscular (IM) methotrexate (MTX) in patients with low-risk GTN (LR-GTN). SETTINGS AND DESIGN The study was designed cross-sectional and prospectively. Patients(More)
