The relationship between nuclear magnetic resonance relaxation time obtained with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and muscle fiber composition of the lateral gastrocnemius was examined in 13 men. There was a positive correlation (r = 0.80, P < or = 0.001) between longitudinal relaxation time and the relative percentage of slow-twitch muscle fibers (type(More)
The hydration behavior of three naturally occurring sphingomyelins (SM) has been studied. Adsorption isotherms for these SM, singly and in combination with other lipids, were obtained and the isotherms analyzed by the application of BET theory. The results are compared with those found previously by us for the phosphatidylcholines (PC). We find that,(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the pattern of failure and the prognosis following pathological staging for uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective review was conducted of 22 patients with UPSC, treated between 1989 and 1998 at a single institution. All patients were surgically staged. Two patients with advanced disease(More)
The effect of phloretin on the hydration, structure and interactive properties of supported phospholipid bilayers has been studied by a combination of direct water adsorption measurements and X-ray diffraction. Adsorption isotherms show that over a wide range of relative vapor pressures (from 0 to approximately 1.0) the addition of 20 or 40 mol% phloretin(More)
Adsorption isotherms for various saturated phosphatidylcholines have been obtained. Lipids above and below their phase transition temperature differ only in the amount of water adsorbed and not in the nature of their adsorption isotherms. Cholesterol has an effect similar to that of increasing unsaturation in the hydrocarbon chains. Decreasing the length of(More)
We studied the potential of liposomes to deliver oil soluble radiocontrast agents to the liver and have developed a new preparation for CT liver scanning. The preparation consists of Ethiodol with a large amount of phospholipids. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy was done for this lipid preparation, and the spectra show that the lipids are in(More)
To determine the efficacy of combined preoperative chemotherapy and radiation therapy for locally advanced rectal carcinoma and the rate of sphincter conservation, a retrospective survey of 39 patients with locally advanced rectal carcinoma treated with various 5-fluorouracil- and leukovorin-based chemotherapy regimens and radiation prior to surgery in a(More)
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a non-invasive technique to detect metabolites within the normal and tumoral tissues. The ability of MRS to diagnose areas of high metabolic activity linked to tumor cell proliferation is particularly useful for radiotherapy treatment planning because of better gross tumor volume (GTV) delineation. The GTV may be(More)
The proton magnetic resonance (PMR) and phosphorus magnetic resonance (PhMR) spectra of egg phosphatidylcholine in the presence of 1-anilino-8-nahthalenesulfonate (ANS) have been studied. At low ratios of ANS to phospholipid, the spectra indicate that ANS molecules are in the lipid interface region where they interact with the head-group protons. ANS also(More)
