BACKGROUND The prognosis for children with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) treated with a risk adjusted combination of radiation therapy and multi-drug chemotherapy has markedly improved. There remains a group of patients whose disease either recurs or does not respond to therapy. Protein expression profiling has been used to define protein characteristics of serum(More)
Flow velocity waveforms were recorded from the umbilical artery and uteroplacental arterial circulations of 15 women undergoing elective Caesarean section under extradural anaesthesia. The systolic: diastolic ratios of the flow velocity waveform were determined before and after extradural block. Extradural block did not alter fetal or maternal heart rates;(More)

SETTING Inpatient obstetric department at a university medical center. PATIENTS One hundred ten ASA physical status I and II term parturients who attempted a TOL between December 1987 and June(More)
In 1988, the American College of Obstetricians and gynecologists (ACOG) decided that vaginal delivery after a previous cesarean delivery (trial of labor, TOL) was an acceptable alternative to elective repeat cesarean delivery. ACOG stated that there appears to be no absolute contraindication to epidural anesthesia for labor during TOL. The concern is that(More)
We tested the hypothesis that the addition of 75 micrograms fentanyl to 0.5% bupivacaine would reduce the onset time of surgical anesthesia for cesarean delivery to equal the onset time of 3% 2-chloroprocaine and would have no effect when added to 3% 2-chloroprocaine. Fentanyl was found to reduce the onset time of bupivacaine to equal the onset time of(More)
