PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of external beam radiotherapy (RT) as salvage treatment for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) failure or local recurrence after radical prostatectomy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 1991 and 1997, 98 patients underwent salvage RT to the prostatic bed at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre for PSA failure or local(More)
BACKGROUND There are approximately 400,000 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) student athletes and 5-7 million high school student athletes competing each year. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the depression prevalence rate for young adults, which ranges from 10% to 85% across studies, is higher than that of other(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) for positive resection margin and/or pathologic T3 (pT3) adenocarcinoma of the prostate with undetectable postoperative prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. METHODS AND MATERIALS We retrospectively analyzed 125 patients with a positive resection margin and/or pT3(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To assess the efficacy of salvage radiotherapy (RT) for biopsy confirmed or clinically palpable local recurrence of prostate adenocarcinoma after radical prostatectomy (RP). PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 44 patients treated with salvage RT for biopsy confirmed or clinically palpable local recurrence between 1991(More)
Depression affects an estimated 6.7% of today's adult population in a 12-month period. The prevalence rates for certain age groups, such as young adults and older adults, are higher. There are approximately 400,000 National Collegiate Athletic Association student athletes competing each year and 5 to 7 million high school student athletes involved in(More)
Many athletic injuries of the hand commonly present to, and can be managed by, primary care physicians. Knowing when to refer is also obviously important. This article is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all possible hand injuries. Rather, it is meant to serve as a useful guide to the primary care physician. For the busy primary care physician, a(More)
RNA helicase II/Gu (RH-II/Gu or DDX21) is a DEAD-box enzyme that localizes to the nucleoli and may be involved in ribosomal RNA synthesis or processing. It has two paralogues, RH-II/Gualpha and RH-II/Gubeta, both genes of which are on chromosome 10. Their similar genomic structures suggest the two genes arose by gene duplication. Both genes are expressed at(More)
