Isolation by size of epithelial tumor cells : a new method for the immunomorphological and molecular characterization of circulatingtumor cells.
We have developed a new assay, ISET (isolation by size of epithelial tumor cells), which allows the counting and the immunomorphological and molecular characterization of circulating tumor cells inExpand

Sevelamer Prevents Uremia-Enhanced Atherosclerosis Progression in Apolipoprotein E–Deficient Mice
Background— The novel phosphate binder sevelamer has been shown to prevent the progression of aortic and coronary calcification in uremic patients. Whether it also decreases the progression ofExpand

Gastrointestinal absorption, tissue retention, and urinary excretion of dietary aluminum in rats determined by using 26Al.
We used accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and 26AI to study the plasma concentration, urinary excretion, and retention in bone, brain, and liver of a single dose of a dietary concentration ofExpand

Advantage of zero-crossing-point first-derivative spectrophotometry for the quantification of calcium oxalate crystalline phases by infrared spectrophotometry.
The main component of urinary calculi in industrialized countries is calcium oxalate. Its detection in stones is easily performed by infrared spectrophotometry. However its two crystalline formsExpand

Influence of body size on urinary stone composition in men and women
A larger body size has been shown to be associated with increased excretion of urinary lithogenic solutes, and an increased risk of nephrolithiasis has been reported in overweight patients. However,Expand

Detection of circulating prostate derived cells in patients with prostate adenocarcinoma is an independent risk factor for tumor recurrence.
PURPOSE To determine whether the presence of prostate-derived cells in the peripheral blood circulation is a marker of prostate cancer and to define the clinical impact of the test. MATERIALS ANDExpand
