Colostrum and blood samples were obtained on postpartum day 2 and 3 from 17 lactating, healthy women. After delipidation and molecular sieving fractionation of colostrum, interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma)… Expand
Effect of energy substrate manipulation on tumour cell proliferation in parenterally fed cancer patients.
The effects of isocaloric carbohydrate-based vs. fat-based total parenteral nutrition (TPN) regimens on cancer cell proliferation and host nutritional status were evaluated in 27 patients with… Expand
A late complication of pelvic radiotherapy: leiomyosarcoma of the rectum. Report of a case and review of the literature.
Leiomyosarcoma of the rectum is an uncommon malignancy; it accounts for less than 0.1% of all malignancies of the colon and rectum and only one case has been reported long-term following pelvic… Expand

Lung pseudometastases due to vinblastine toxicity
The interesting article by Clemm et al. (Klin Wochenschr 62:138-144) leads us to reflect upon a case reported by us as an example of spontaneous disappearence of hypernephroma metastases . A… Expand
Peripheral blood cell repopulation following high-dose cyclophosphamide.
High-dose cyclophosphamide can be used to obtain haematological stem cells from the peripheral blood. In this paper we analyse the dynamics of appearance of cells with these characteristics, together… Expand
