OBJECTIVES Because repetitive hematuria home screening with a chemical reagent strip can detect early stage bladder cancer (BC) in asymptomatic middle-aged and elderly men, the ability of this screening to effect earlier detection and reduce BC mortality was investigated. METHODS Grades, stages, and outcomes of BCs detected by hematuria screening in 1575(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of this study were to determine whether bladder cancer (BC) screening in healthy men could lead to earlier detection and reduced BC mortality compared with unscreened men and to determine long-term outcomes of a geographically defined, unscreened population with newly diagnosed BC. METHODS In 1987 and from 1998 to 1992, 1575 men(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to compare the effect of body posture on gastric emptying measurements of radiolabeled meals. Eight healthy male subjects were studied on four separate days. During each study subjects were fed a standardized meal of beef stew labeled with technetium-99m sulfur colloid, and orange juice. Measurements of solid-phase(More)
The majority of urinary tract tumors cause bleeding in the urine. A program designed to detect hematuria before it is grossly apparent may contribute to earlier detection and more successful treatment of these malignancies. To test this hypothesis a hematuria home screening study was conducted. A total of 1,340 healthy men 50 years old or older used(More)
To determine at what interval screening should be repeated to detect bladder cancer before it becomes muscle invasive 856 men who had 14 negative daily home tests for hematuria with a chemical reagent strip 9 months previously performed repeat tests. Of these men 50 (5.8%) had at least 1 positive test during the second 14-day screening period and 38 were(More)
A study was designed to investigate the muscular relations to the tonsil and tonsillar bed in man. Twenty-one histologically prepared human fetal specimens were examined. Muscle bundles from the palatopharyngeus and stylopharyngeus muscles and the amygdaloglossus muscle were found to relate to the tonsillar capsule in such a way as to suggest that during(More)
Elliptinium (2-N-methyl-9-hydroxyellipticinium), a chemotherapeutic agent whose mechanism of action has not been completely elucidated, intercalates into DNA. In this Phase I clinical trial, the schedule of drug administration consisted of weekly intravenous infusions. Twenty-nine patients were evaluable for toxicity. The initial dose level was 40 mg/m2 and(More)
Cyclosporine recently has become part of the treatment regimen for patients with refractory inflammatory bowel disease, though it is still considered investigational for that purpose. However, little attention has been given to the potential hepatotoxicity associated with cyclosporine administration. This can be especially significant in patients with(More)
