METHODS AND RESULTS One-hundred and seventy-seven patients with lone paroxysmal AF were randomly(More)
BACKGROUND Primary-prevention implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) reduce total mortality in patients with severe left ventricular systolic function. However, only a minority of patients benefit from these devices. We designed the Prospective Observational Study of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (PROSE-ICD) to identify risk factors and(More)
In the phase 3 Evaluating Nilotinib Efficacy and Safety in Clinical Trials-Newly Diagnosed Patients (ENESTnd) study, nilotinib resulted in earlier and higher response rates and a lower risk of progression to accelerated phase/blast crisis (AP/BC) than imatinib in patients with newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase (CML-CP). Here,(More)
BACKGROUND Liver transplantation (LT) increases the risk of de novo malignancies including skin cancers. However, risk factors for this type of cancers have not been well studied. OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of skin cancer in LT recipients, and to identify the risk factors of this type of cancer. METHODS We identified all adult patients who(More)
