OBJECTIVE Since intratumoral heterogeneity of gliomas is not adequately reflected in conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we sought to determine a correlation between different proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging ((1)H MRSI) metabolic ratios and the degree of tumor infiltration in diffusely infiltrating gliomas. In this report, we… (More)
The treatment of patients with anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AO) has been significantly impacted by the molecular detection of loss of sequences on chromosomes 1p and 19q. We performed a clinical trial to prospectively evaluate the safety of treating patients with AO with temozolomide (TMZ) alone in patients with chromosome 1p/19q loss and with… (More)
CD44 is an integral membrane glycoprotein that functions as a receptor for the extracellular matrix glycan, hyaluronan. Here we report that CD44 is a novel biomarker for non-small cell lung tumors, squamous metaplasia of the lung, and activated type II pneumocytes. We have examined the expression of CD44 in 12 human lung tumor cell lines and 23 fixed,… (More)
The authors report a patient with chorea and multifocal neurologic abnormalities associated with a small-cell lung carcinoma. A previously unreported antibody directed at a 76-kD neuronal protein antigen was identified in both serum and CSF. Antitumor treatment resulted in dramatic and sustained clinical neurologic and serologic responses.
The smart power grids will extensively rely on network control to increase efficiency, reliability, and safety. In this context, the simulation of such complex systems is becoming an essential tool to support the development of Smart Grids. This paper presents an overview of the EDF R&D Modelica library GridSysPro (GSP), which provides electrical components… (More)
BACKGROUND Myocardial hypertrophy and dysfunction are key features of metabolic heart disease due to dietary excess. Metabolic heart disease manifests primarily as diastolic dysfunction but may progress to systolic dysfunction, although the mechanism is poorly understood. Liver kinase B1 (LKB1) is a key activator of AMP-activated protein kinase and possibly… (More)
