A high-resolution time series of transcript abundance was generated to describe global expression dynamics in response to nutrition in Drosophila. Nonparametric change-point statistics revealed that… Expand
Banks, Market Organization, and Macroeconomic Performance: An Agent-Based Computational Analysis
This paper is an exploratory analysis of the role that banks play in supporting what Jevons called the "mechanism of exchange." It considers a model economy in which exchange activities are… Expand
Outcomes Following Complete Surgical Metastasectomy for Patients with Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Systematic Review and Meta‐Analysis
Purpose: The benefit of complete surgical metastasectomy for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma remains controversial due to limited outcome data. We performed a systematic review and… Expand
The role of lymph node dissection in the management of renal cell carcinoma: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Our objective was to evaluate the role of retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (LND) in non‐metastatic (M0) and metastatic (M1) renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We searched Medline, EMBASE, Web of… Expand
Causes of renal forniceal rupture
Study Type – Diagnostic (exploratory cohort) Level of Evidence 2b
Comprehensive Characterization of the Perioperative Morbidity of Cytoreductive Nephrectomy.
BACKGROUND Although cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) has been associated with perioperative morbidity, data are lacking regarding the risk of prolonged length of stay (pLOS) and delay to receipt of… Expand

- B. Gershman
- 1 July 2014
The two sides of envy, destructive and competitive, give rise to qualitatively different equilibria, depending on economic, institutional, and cultural environment. If inequality is high, property… Expand
Renal Cell Carcinoma with Isolated Lymph Node Involvement: Long-term Natural History and Predictors of Oncologic Outcomes Following Surgical Resection.
BACKGROUND Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with isolated lymph node (LN) involvement has historically been associated with poor prognosis. However, a subset of patients may experience long-term survival.… Expand
Radical Nephrectomy With or Without Lymph Node Dissection for Nonmetastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Propensity Score-based Analysis.
BACKGROUND It is uncertain whether lymph node dissection (LND) provides a therapeutic benefit in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association of LND with oncologic outcomes… Expand
