The present study applied the International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) to 306 consecutive myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients diagnosed between August 1977 and September 2000 at the University Medical Centre Nijmegen. The aim was to investigate whether the IPSS could be used as a prognostic tool in MDS patients aged less than 61 years who were(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the 48-week drug survival, efficacy and toxicity of monotherapy with a fully human anti-tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) monoclonal antibody (moAb) and methotrexate (MTX) in patients with active long-standing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Secondary aims were to identify potential predictors for clinical response. METHODS(More)
The aim of our study was to interpret the changing incidence, and to describe the mortality of patients with testicular cancer in the south of the Netherlands between 1970 and 2004. On the basis of data from the Eindhoven Cancer Registry and Statistics Netherlands, 5-year moving average standardised incidence and mortality rates were calculated. An(More)
OBJECTIVE Several cross-sectional studies on populations with iodine deficiency showed that TSH-levels are negatively associated with age, while in populations with high iodine intake TSH is positively associated with age. The question is whether such an age-thyroid function relation is an ongoing process apparent also in longitudinal studies and whether it(More)
A two-locus segregation and linkage-analysis approach was used to characterize the genetic control of a complex trait (Q1) and to localize the genes that have detectable effects. The results suggested that a two-locus Mendelian model fit the data significantly better than a one-locus model. The linkage results based on the most parsimonious two-locus model(More)
BACKGROUND Worldwide marked changes have been observed in the incidence and survival of testicular cancer (TC) during the last decades. We conducted a study on trends in TC incidence, treatment, survival, and mortality in the Netherlands during the period 1970-2009 with specific focus on trends according to age, histology and stage of disease. METHODS(More)

DESIGN Descriptive. METHODS Patients with CCAC of the uterine cervix or vagina born after 1946 and diagnosed in the period 1969-2005, were(More)
