PURPOSE Variations in target volume delineation represent a significant hurdle in clinical trials involving conformal radiotherapy. We sought to determine the effect of a consensus guideline-based visual atlas on contouring the target volumes. METHODS AND MATERIALS A representative case was contoured (Scan 1) by 14 physician observers and a reference(More)
Simian immunodeficiency viruses from African green monkeys (SIVagm) can be classified into three subgroups based upon the species from which they were isolated. The most extensively studied subgroup are composed of SIVagm isolated from vervet monkeys (Cercopithicus pygerythrus). Fewer isolates have been characterized from either grivets (Cercopithicus(More)
The social and political climates are changing rapidly in the United States and the world at large. The threat of a chemical, biologic, radiologic, and/or nuclear event is a rising concern to many. The current Ebola crisis has shed light on health care providers' preparedness for such an event. Radiologists, including radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine(More)
An assessment of multiple biomarkers from radiation casualties undergoing limited- or full-supportive care including treatment with filgrastim is critical to develop rapid and effective diagnostic triage strategies. The efficacy of filgrastim with full-supportive care was compared with results with limited-supportive care by analyzing survival, necropsy,(More)
To characterize isolates further within the SIVagm subtype, we studied four SIVagm isolates by cross-hybridization, molecular cloning, and nucleotide sequencing. Our results indicate an unexpected degree of genetic variation among isolates within the SIVagm subtype comparable to the variation between SIVmac and HIV-2.
We derived two infectious molecular clones of SIV from sooty mangabey monkeys (Cercocebus atys) and compared them by restriction enzyme mapping and limited DNA sequencing to other known primate lentiviruses. These analyses show that SIVsmm is closely related to, but distinct from, SIVmac and HIV-2. Our data suggest that SIVmac may have been derived from(More)
