UNLABELLED Variable success rates for identifying axillary (AX) sentinel nodes in breast cancer patients using preoperative lymphoscintigraphy have been reported. We evaluated the effects of age, weight, breast size, method of biopsy, interval after biopsy, and imaging view on the success of sentinel node identification and on the kinetics of(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphatic mapping (LM) with sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy has revolutionized the surgical staging of primary breast cancer, but its utility and feasibility have not been established in patients with ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) after breast-conserving surgery (BCS) and radiation. METHODS We reviewed our breast cancer database(More)
PURPOSE To compare phospholipid profiles [phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), and phosphatidylinositol (PI)] of normotensive and hypertensive aqueous humor (AH) from DBA/2J and compare them with phospholipid profiles of DBA/2J-Gpnmb(+)/SjJ mice. METHODS AH was obtained from young-normotensive DBA/2J, old(More)
Strontium-89 is an effective agent for palliation of pain due to bony metastases from breast and prostate carcinoma. As a functional analog of calcium, 89Sr is taken up by bone in areas of osteoblastic activity. Since patients with multiple myeloma frequently have osteolytic metastases, 89Sr might not be considered to be a therapeutic option. However,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the difference in protein glycosylation and glycosylation enzyme levels between glaucomatous and control trabecular meshwork (TM). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Glaucomatous and normal donor (n = 12 each) TM tissues, lectin fluorescence, fluorophore-assisted carbohydrate analyses, and quantitative MS were used to determine the glycosylation(More)
To compare phospholipid (phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol) profiles of human control and glaucomatous aqueous humor (AQH). AQH samples were procured during surgery from human POAG and control subjects (n = 15 each). Samples were used following institutional review board approved protocols and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the differential profiles of sphingomyelin, sphingoid base, sphingoid base-1-phosphate, and ceramide and their quantitative differences between trabecular meshwork (TM) derived from normotensive and hypertensive intraocular pressure states of DBA/2J mice. METHODS Normotensive and hypertensive state TM were collected from mice and(More)
