PURPOSE To determine the neurofunctional basis of verbal memory dysfunction in women with metastatic breast cancer. This objective was based on previous research suggesting memory and other cognitive deficits in this population. We attempted to determine if verbal memory impairments were related to the most commonly studied disease parameters including(More)
The hypothesis that dietary fat acts as a promotional agent for the development of breast cancer by influencing sex hormone levels was tested in a dietary intervention study. Thirty-three women in good health were randomly allocated to commence either a standard diet (deriving 40% of their energy from fat) or a low-fat diet (deriving 20% of their energy(More)

Breast cancer development is believed to be associated with both dietary fat consumption and the proportion of biologically available estradiol in the serum. A study was undertaken to determine if a reduction in fat consumption would influence the binding, and thus the bioavailability, of estradiol. Groups of pre- and postmenopausal women were randomized to(More)
Maternal exposures to aminopterin and methotrexate have been associated with a pattern of malformation which includes prenatal-onset growth deficiency, severe lack of ossification of the calvarium, hypoplastic supraorbital ridges, small, low-set ears, micrognathia, and limb abnormalities. We report on a patient whose mother received methotrexate during the(More)
A possible mechanism by which dietary fat may influence the development of breast cancer is by influencing the concentration of female sex hormones. This study investigated the effect of alteration in the type of fat consumed on concentrations of female sex hormones in serum. Female volunteers were randomly assigned to continue on their usual meat-eating(More)
Purpose: Our objective was to determine the effect of experience on the results with intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Methods: The quarterly outcome with both ICSI and traditionalin vitro fertilization (IVF) in 1994 was analyzed in 475 patients under age 40 undergoing 595 oocyte retrievals. The data represent 307 patients undergoing 379 retrievals for IVF(More)
