VP-16 100 mg/m2 was given intravenously to 10 patients undergoing surgical resection of intracerebral tumors, and the drug was assayed in resected tumor using high pressure liquid chromatography. VP-16 concentrations varied from undetectable (less than .1 microgram/g) to 5.9 micrograms/g (mean, 1.4 microgram/g). VP-16 concentrations in tumors were lower(More)
Thirty-four consenting patients received VM-26 50-100 mg/m2 I.V. before surgical resection of intracerebral tumor, and drug was measured using a high pressure liquid chromatographic technique. Sufficient tumor for analysis was obtained from 29 patients. Brain metastases (13 patients) had higher concentrations of VM-26 than did gliomas (13 patients).(More)
18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) allows to quantify the metabolic activity of a tumor (glycolysis) and has become a reference tool in oncology for the staging, restaging, radiotherapy planning and monitoring response in many cancers. Quantitative analyses have been introduced in order to overcome(More)
Perimenopause, women's normal midlife reproductive transition, is highly symptomatic for about 20% of women who are currently inaccurately counseled and inappropriately treated with oral contraceptives, menopausal hormone therapy or hysterectomy. About 80% of perimenopausal women experience vasomotor symptoms (VMS), 25% have menorrhagia, and about 10%(More)
