OBJECTIVES Serous cystic neoplasm (SCN) is a cystic neoplasm of the pancreas whose natural history is poorly known. The purpose of the study was to attempt to describe the natural history of SCN, including the specific mortality. DESIGN Retrospective multinational study including SCN diagnosed between 1990 and 2014. RESULTS 2622 patients were included.(More)
Barrett's esophagus (BE), a common condition, is the only known precursor to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). There is uncertainty about the best way to manage BE as most people with BE never develop EAC and most patients diagnosed with EAC have no preceding diagnosis of BE. Moreover, there have been recent advances in knowledge and practice about the(More)
A series of complex and synthetic media have been developed that are suitable for the production of cephalosporin C and cephalosporin N by a mutant strain of Cephalosporium (C.M.I. 49,137). dl-Methionine increased the yield of both antibiotics, with more effect on cephalosporin N. l-Cystine had a greater enhancing effect on formation of cephalosporin C than(More)
OBJECTIVES The role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in Barrett's esophagus (BE) remains unclear. The few studies that have previously investigated HPV and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) or BE have produced either negative data or positive results of doubtful clinical/etiological significance or have detected only low-risk HPV types. We therefore(More)
A series of (substituted amino)-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1-oxides has been synthesized and most members of the series have been shown to have blood pressure lowering effects in normotensive rabbits and in spontaneously hypertensive rats. The most active member of the series was 3-[4-(2-furoyl)-1-piperazinyl]-6,7-dimethoxy-1-methyl-1H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine(More)
We investigated the role of high-risk human papillomavirus (hr-HPV) in patients with Barrett's dysplasia and adenocarcinoma (EAC). Clearance vs persistence of HPV (DNA, E6 or E7 mRNA, and p16INK4A protein) and overexpression or mutation of p53 were determined for 40 patients who underwent endotherapy for Barrett's dysplasia or EAC. After ablation, dysplasia(More)
Cephalothin is 7-(thiophene-2-acetamido) cephalosporanic acid; it was prepared by N-acylation of the nucleus of cephalosporin C, 7-aminocephalosporanic acid. Cephalothin had a broad spectrum of antibiotic activity that was essentially unaffected by human serum or inoculum level, the activity of penicillinase, or pH variation of the growth medium. In vitro(More)
Pregnant guinea pigs were fed on one of three diets: a commercial low-fat diet or a high-fat diet containing either maize oil or beef dripping. The young were killed at birth, the brain removed and dissected into three regions; the cerebellum, cerebrum and stem. The fatty acid composition of the major phospholipid classes, phosphatidylcholine and(More)
