BACKGROUND Bone metastases are a major burden in men with advanced prostate cancer. We compared denosumab, a human monoclonal antibody against RANKL, with zoledronic acid for prevention of skeletal-related events in men with bone metastases from castration-resistant prostate cancer. METHODS In this phase 3 study, men with castration-resistant prostate… (More)
This double-blind study investigated the efficacy and safety of rapid-acting intramuscular olanzapine in treating agitation associated with Alzheimer's disease and/or vascular dementia. At 2 h, olanzapine (5.0 mg, 2.5 mg) and lorazepam (1.0 mg) showed significant improvement over placebo on the PANSS Excited Component (PANSS-EC) and Agitation-Calmness… (More)

—An ultra-wideband mixer using standard comple-mentery metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology was first proposed in this paper. This broadband mixer achieves measured conversion gain of 11 1 5 dB with a bandwidth of 0.3 to 25 GHz. The mixer was fabricated in a commercial 0.18-m CMOS technology and demonstrated the highest frequency and bandwidth of… (More)
A D-band (110 to 170GHz) CMOS push-push VCO is presented in this paper. Implemented in standard 0.13µm CMOS technology, the VCO has a 114GHz output signal with a phase noise of –107.6dBc/Hz at 10MHz offset, and a power consumption of 8.4mW from a 1.2V supply. Millimeter wave (MMW) VCO design is motivated by the need for the ever-increasing frequency and… (More)
