Twenty patients with known ovarian cancer have been investigated in this pilot study to verify the clinical usefulness of radioimaging using the B72.3 monoclonal antibody labelled with iodine-131. No adverse reactions occurred after intravenous injection of B72.3 MoAb. The radioimaging results were compared with those obtained with other diagnostic methods,(More)
The case of a 60-year-old man with massive lower intestinal bleeding, secondary to erosion of an abnormally large submucosal muscular artery in the ascending colon, is reported. The bleeding site was localized by angiography. The clinicopathologic presentation of this case is identical to Dieulafoy's disease, which occurs almost exclusively in the stomach.(More)
PURPOSE Nosocomial Legionnaires' disease remains a significant problem with many unresolved questions regarding transmission of legionella organisms to patients. We performed a case-control and environmental study to identify risk factors and modes of transmission of Legionella infection during an outbreak of nosocomial Legionnaires' disease in a military(More)
Abstract The current study used a rat model to investigate the underlying mechanisms of blast-induced tinnitus, hearing loss, and associated traumatic brain injury (TBI). Seven rats were used to evaluate behavioral evidence of tinnitus and hearing loss, and TBI using magnetic resonance imaging following a single 10-msec blast at 14 psi or 194 dB sound(More)
The nature of the blast cells in 163 cases of acute leukemia was investigated by immunophenotyping, with particular emphasis on the expression of "ectopic" surface membrane structures. Although no antigen included in our panel except CD3 revealed absolute lineage restriction, immunological typing allowed a definite characterization of blast cells in more(More)
AIMS L-arginine (LA), the precursor of nitric oxide (NO), was suggested to be beneficial in many forms of renal disease: hypertension, ureteral obstructive nephropathy and cyclosporin A (CsA) nephrotoxicity. METHODS Thus, we investigated the effects of LA supplementation on renal function, proteinuria and blood pressure (BP) in young renal allograft(More)
Tinnitus has a complex etiology that involves auditory and non-auditory factors and may be accompanied by hyperacusis, anxiety and cognitive changes. Thus far, investigations of the interrelationship between tinnitus and auditory and non-auditory impairment have yielded conflicting results. To further address this issue, we noise exposed rats and assessed(More)
Tinnitus, a ringing in the ear or head without an external sound source, is a prevalent health problem. It is often associated with a number of limbic-associated disorders such as anxiety, sleep disturbance, and emotional distress. Thus, to investigate tinnitus, it is important to consider both auditory and non-auditory brain structures. This paper(More)
Previous studies indicate that the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) may serve as a generator and/or modulator of noise-induced tinnitus. This prompted an interest to investigate the modulatory role of the DCN in tinnitus suppression. In this study, we chronically implanted the DCN of rats with behavioral evidence of intense tone-induced tinnitus. Behavioral(More)
Exposure to high-pressure blast shock waves is known to cause tinnitus. Although the underlying mechanisms may involve damage to structures in the ear and/or direct brain impact, which triggers a cascade of neuroplastic changes in both auditory and nonauditory centers, it remains unclear how the induced neuroplasticity manifests neurophysiologically.
