UNLABELLED The aim of the present study was to investigate diagnostic delay in oral cancer (OC) in two diagnosis centers in Córdoba, Argentina. Special attention was paid to the role of the patient and the professional in the diagnostic delay. METHODS Seventy clinical records of patients with newly diagnosed oral squamous cell carcinoma were included. (More)
In this work, we describe the advantages of multiplex-PCR in the specific detection of BCR-ABL transcripts in different hematological disorders and its sensitivity compared to nested PCR. Fifty-three patients were studied for the presence of BCR-ABL transcripts: 24 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), 20 with acute leukemia (AL), and 9 patients(More)
The anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) humanized monoclonal antibody (MAb) h-R3 is an (IgG1), which binds to an extracellular domain of EGF-R. It was used to evaluate the biodistribution on nude mice xenografted with H-125 human lung adenocarcinoma cell line. Results were compared with its murine version of the MAb ior-egf/r3. Twenty-one(More)
The pharmacokinetics, biodistribution and dosimetry of 99mTc-labeled anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor (anti-hEGF-r) humanized monoclonal antibody (MAb) R3 was investigated following intravenous injection in normal Wistar rats. Serum disappearance curves were best fit by a two-compartment model having a mean distribution half-life (t 1/2alpha) of(More)
The anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) humanized antibody h-R3 (IgG(1)), which binds to an extracellular domain of EGF-R, was used to evaluate the biodistribution on nude mice xenografted with A431 epidermoid carcinoma cell line. Results are compared with its murine version ior egf/r3 monoclonal antibody (mAb). Twenty-one athymic female(More)
BACKGROUND The consequences of undetected low glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are important in hospitalized patients who receive potentially nephrotoxic drugs or undergo major surgery. This study estimated the prevalence of estimated GFR (eGFR) <60mL/min/1.73m(2) in hospitalized patients. METHODS This cross-sectional descriptive study included 14,658(More)
Inbreeding generates covariances between additive and dominance effects (breeding values and dominance deviations). In this work, we developed and applied models for estimation of dominance and additive genetic variances and their covariance, a model that we call "full dominance," from pedigree and phenotypic data. Estimates with this model such as(More)
In closed rabbit lines selected for prolificacy at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, genetic responses are predicted using BLUP. With a standard additive BLUP model and year-season (YS) effects fitted as fixed, genetic trends were overestimated compared to responses estimated using control populations obtained from frozen embryos. In these lines,(More)
