The t(6;22)(p21;q12) translocation associated with human bone and soft-tissue tumours results in a chimaeric molecule fusing the NTD (N-terminal domain) of the EWS (Ewing's sarcoma) gene to the CTD (C-terminal domain) of the Oct-4 (octamer-4) embryonic gene. Since the N-terminal domains of EWS and Oct-4 are structurally different, in the present study we(More)
In a study designed to reevaluate standard normal values for the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) determined by modified Westergren method, we analyzed samples obtained from individuals in infancy through age 80 years. We found upper limits of normal to be slightly above generally accepted standard laboratory values. An age related increase (stepwise(More)
Indium-111-labeled leukocyte scintigraphy was applied to the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Thirty-two patients observed in the hospital for possible appendicitis were prospectively studied. Scanning was done 2 hr after radiopharmaceutical injection. Thirteen scans were positive for acute appendicitis, and all but one were confirmed at laparotomy. In(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A major problem diagnosing bladder cancer using conventional white-light cystoscopy is that flat and tiny papillary neoplasms can be overlooked. Fluorescence cystoscopy is based on the detection of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX)-induced fluorescence in urothelial neoplasms through the topical administration of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA).(More)
Perioperative low dose heparin was administered to 24 patients who were compared with 19 control patients undergoing peripheral vascular surgical procedures. This prophylactic measure was ineffective in reducing the incidence of subclinical, postoperative deep venous thrombosis, as indicated by iodine-125 fibrinogen scanning. The data suggest that patients(More)
