OBJECTIVE Although the Calvert formula is the standard method to calculate the dose of carboplatin, there is no consensus how to determine the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) without using [51Cr]-ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (51Cr-EDTA). Creatinine clearance (Ccr), calculated using the Cockroft-Gault, Jelliffe, Modified-Jelliffe or Wright formulae, has(More)
OBJECTIVES This is a pilot study for a future trial to assess the efficacy and safety of combination chemotherapy with docetaxel and carboplatin in advanced or recurrent uterine cervix cancer. METHODS The patients eligible for this study had histologically confirmed, advanced (stage IB2-IV) or recurrent uterine cervix cancer. Eligible patients had(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of extraperitoneal laparoscopic para-aortic and common iliac lymphadenectomy for cervical and endometrial carcinoma. METHODS Seventy-six patients underwent extraperitoneal laparoscopic para-aortic and common iliac lymphadenectomy between February 1999 and September 2005. The lymph nodes(More)
This paper presents an energy efficient radio access network (RAN) selection for vertical handover between heterogeneous networks. The proposed RAN selection switches evaluation bases by application and adaptively selects a RAN with low energy consumption. In addition, the selection employs a penalty function that avoids discarded vertical handovers(More)
