PURPOSE To determine whether high-dose radiation leads to improved outcomes in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS AND MATERIALS This analysis included 106 patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent Stages I-III NSCLC, treated with 63-103 Gy in 2.1-Gy fractions, using three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) per a dose(More)
BACKGROUND Ventilator strategies that maintain an "open lung" have shown promise in treating hypoxemic patients. We compared three "open lung" strategies with standard of care low tidal volume ventilation and hypothesized that each would diminish physiologic and histopathologic evidence of ventilator induced lung injury (VILI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Acute(More)
The horse-chestnut leaf miner, Cameraria ohridella Deschka and Dimic (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), is a moth of unknown origin that was first observed in Macedonia in the late 1970s. Since then, it has spread over most of Europe, causing permanent outbreaks on the European horse-chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum L. (Sapindales: Sapindaceae), a major urban(More)
Recent observations show that the thermal boundary conditions within large-scale fires are significantly affected by the presence of thermally massive objects. These objects cool the soot and gas near their surfaces, and these effects reduce the incoming radiant heat-flux to values lower than the levels expected from simple σTfire models. They also affect(More)
INTRODUCTION Thalidomide has recently proven to be a useful drug for treatment of refractory and relapsed multiple myeloma patients, up to 35% of whom achieve remission. However, little is known about the potential additive or synergistic effect upon its association with other drugs with proven efficacy in MM. MATERIAL AND METHODS The present pilot study(More)
OBJECTIVE During pregnancy cytokines and inflammatory mediators stimulate the expression of prostaglandin, the levels of which determine the onset of labor. The aim of this work was to study interleukin IL-1beta, IL-6 and IL-8 levels in the vaginal discharge, serum and urine of pregnant women with genitourinary infection before and after specific treatment.(More)
A three-step mechanism involving the formation and rearrangement of an intermediate with indoline-azetidine spirocyclic core structure was shown by DFT computations to account for the electrophilic cyclization of tryptophan derivatives to hexahydropyrrolo[2,3-b]indoles. The corresponding 3a-bromo derivatives have been obtained in high yields and(More)
Pseudorotation reactions of biologically relevant oxyphosphoranes were studied by using density functional and continuum solvation methods. A series of 16 pseudorotation reactions involving acyclic and cyclic oxyphosphoranes in neutral and monoanionic (singly deprotonated) forms were studied, in addition to pseudorotation of PF5. The effect of solvent was(More)
