OBJECTIVES A retrospective analysis of the results of an aggressive multimodal approach combining radical prostatectomy with adjuvant radiation, chemotherapy, or androgen deprivation therapy for patients with pathologic Stage D1 prostate carcinoma was performed to assess the impact of these therapies on survival, recurrence, local control, and morbidity.

Between 1976 and 1989, 114 patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy and bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection for prostatic adenocarcinoma were found to have stage PcN0 lesions. Postoperative adjuvant radiation therapy without hormonal treatment was given to 95 of these patients (83%): 26 (27%) with stage C1, 37 (39%) with stage C2 and 32 (34%)(More)
Cloud computing has emerged in recent years as a major segment of the IT industry; however, security concerns remain the primary impediment to full-scale adoption. Leveraging properties of virtualization, virtual machine introspection (VMI) has yielded promising research for cloud security yet adoption of these approaches in production environments remains(More)

Based on the assumption that understanding client motivation is central to the rehabilitation process but that motivation is complex, configural, and not a bipolar construct, this study sought to describe the motivational patterns of 110 spinal cord injured persons receiving vocational rehabilitation services. Self-report inventories purporting to measure(More)
Cadmium (Cd) is an environmental endocrine disruptor that has toxic effects on the female reproductive system. Here the ameliorative effect of grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) on Cd-induced meiosis inhibition during oogenesis was explored. As compared with controls, chicken embryos exposed to Cd (3 µg/egg) displayed a changed oocyte morphology,(More)
Pancreas transplantation for the treatment of diabetes mellitus is being done with increasing frequency. Refined operative techniques, an improved immunosuppression regimen, and an earlier recognition of rejection have led to dramatic increases in both graft and patient survival rates. Preliminary data suggest that a functioning pancreatic allograft may(More)
Modern broiler chickens exhibit very rapid growth and high feed efficiency compared to unselected chicken breeds. The improved production efficiency in modern broiler chickens was achieved by the intensive genetic selection for meat production. This study was designed to investigate the genetic alterations accumulated in modern broiler breeder lines during(More)
