To determine effects of biostimulation (BIO) and dietary supplementation (BIO+S) on pubertal age and pregnancy rates, Nelore heifers (n=392) were randomly assigned to one of four treatment groups (n=98/group). All animals were in tropical environmental conditions, in the middle-west region of Brazil, grazing in pastures of Brachiaria brizantha, cv. Marandu;(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse through a large multicentre series, morbidity of nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) in relation to tumour size and surgical indication. METHODS The study included patients from eight international academic centres. Age, sex, TNM stage, tumour size, Fuhrman grade, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG-PS), surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Ipsilateral recurrence after nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) is rare, and little is known about its specific determinants. OBJECTIVE To determine clinical or pathologic features associated with ipsilateral recurrence after NSS performed for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS We analysed 809 NSS procedures performed at(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare open (OPN) and laparoscopic (LPN) partial nephrectomy (PN) techniques in the light of a French multicentre series. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data corresponding to 741 PN (91 laparoscopic and 650 open procedures) were compared in terms of the indications, tumour diameter, operative data, complication rates and length of hospital stay.

Dear Editor, A 49-year-old woman presented with stage IA diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the uterine cervix. She received four courses of R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, and prednisolone) and two cycles of RICE (rituximab, ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide), followed by local tomotherapy. A complete remission was(More)
Unsaturated malonyl esters underwent Pd-catalyzed intramolecular allylic alkylation to give 4-vinyl-substituted gamma-lactones. In contrast to the formerly studied cyclization of malonamides, this reaction could be achieved only with a substrate incorporating a suitably positioned silicon moiety, which directs the ionization toward the desired(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the practice of partial nephrectomy (PN) in France and assess its results in terms of morbidity and cancer control. MATERIAL AND METHOD Seven French University Hospitals in which nephron sparing surgery represents at least 30% of the total number of nephrectomies for renal tumour, participated in this study. All centres included, as(More)
