Cytogenetic and gene expression analyses in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) have allowed identification of genomic aberrations that may contribute to cancer pathophysiology. Nevertheless, the molecular consequences of numerous genetic alterations still remain unclear. To identify novel genes implicated in HNSCC pathogenesis, we analyzed the(More)
The characteristics of the four major vestibular nuclei and accessory cell groups in the rat have been studied in serially cut horizontal sections. Camera lucida drawings of the vestibular nuclei and their neurons were made in these sections and subjected to a computerized image analysis. The dimensions (volume and length) and the number of cells of each(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The objective was to determine the characteristics of horizontal head-shaking nystagmus of peripheral origin and its relationship to vestibular dysfunction. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Eighty-three patients met the inclusion criteria of having peripheral and unilateral vestibular disease. Patients were tested(More)
Loco-regional control rate of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has improved significantly in the past decade. However, local recurrence still represents a major cause of mortality and morbidity in advanced stages, and management of local failure remains a challenging issue in NPC. The best salvage treatment for local recurrent NPC remains to be determined.(More)
Compelling evidence indicates that the human ether-à-go-go voltage-gated potassium channels (hEAG1) may represent new valuable membrane therapeutic targets and diagnostic/prognostic biomarkers in various cancers. This study is the first to investigate the expression of hEAG1 potassium channel subunit in both primary tumors and HNSCC-derived cell lines to(More)
The data concerning the effects of age on the brainstem are scarce and few works are devoted to the human vestibular nuclear complex. The study of the effects of aging in the vestibular nuclei could have clinical interest due to the high prevalence of balance control and gait problems in the elderly. We have used in this work eight human brainstems of(More)
Head and neck paragangliomas are tumors arising from specialized neural crest cells. Prominent locations are the carotid body along with the vagal, jugular, and tympanic glomus. Head and neck paragangliomas are slowly growing tumors, with some carotid body tumors being reported to exist for many years as a painless lateral mass on the neck. Symptoms depend(More)
Quick interaction between a human teacher and a learning machine presents numerous benefits and challenges when working with web-scale data. The human teacher guides the machine towards accomplishing the task of interest. The learning machine leverages big data to find examples that maximize the training value of its interaction with the teacher. When the(More)
Large enterprises can save significant energy and money by putting idle desktop machines to sleep. Many systems that let desktops sleep and wake them on demand have been proposed, but enterprise IT departments refuse to deploy them because they require special hardware , disruptive virtualization technology, or dedicated per-subnet proxies, none of which(More)
The projection site in the central nervous system of individual end-organ branches of regenerated vestibular nerves was documented in bullfrogs. The eighth cranial nerve was surgically sectioned in 12 bullfrogs (Rana catesbeiana) and allowed to regenerate. Horseradish peroxidase was used to label the primary vestibular afferent fibers from the whole nerve(More)
