We consider a mathematical model for the spatio-temporal evolution of two biological species in a competitive situation. Besides diffusing, both species move toward higher concentrations of a chemical substance which is produced by themselves. The resulting system consists of two parabolic equations with Lotka-Volterra-type kinetic terms and chemotactic(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the results obtained in a prospective group of patients with basal or squamous cell skin carcinomas of the face treated by high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy via custom-made surface molds. METHODS AND MATERIALS A total of 136 patients with basal or squamous cell carcinomas of the face were treated between March 1992 and March 1997 by(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the results obtained in a prospective group of patients with keloid scars treated by high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy with or without surgery. METHODS AND MATERIALS One hundred and sixty-nine patients with keloid scars were treated with HDR brachytherapy between December 1991 and December 1998. One hundred and thirty-four patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Beta emitting 106Ru applicators are widely used to treat choroidal melanoma. In view of the importance of clinical applications of this radioisotope and the relative lack of knowledge of the dose distributions, three-dimensional dose maps of two concave applicators were calculated by means of Monte Carlo simulation. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the long-term results of a pilot study assessing excision and brachytherapy as salvage treatment for local recurrence after conservative treatment of breast cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between December 1990 and March 2001, 36 patients with breast-only recurrence less than 3 cm in diameter after conservative treatment for Stage I or II(More)
We consider a simple mathematical model of tumor growth based on cancer stem cells. The model consists of four hyperbolic equations of first order to describe the evolution of different subpopulations of cells: cancer stem cells, progenitor cells, differentiated cells and dead cells. A fifth equation is introduced to model the evolution of the moving(More)
The immunotherapy using dendritic cells (DCs) against different varieties of cancer is an approach that has been previously explored which induces a specific immune response. This work presents a mathematical model of DCs immunotherapy for melanoma in mice based on work by Experimental Immunotherapy Laboratory of the Medicine Faculty in the Universidad(More)
5118 Background: To report early and late toxicity and preliminary biochemical outcome in 445 patients with intermediate- or high-risk clinically localized prostate cancer treated with either HD-3D-CRT or with LD-3D-CRT+HDR-B. METHODS Between December 1999 and October 2005, 445 patients (pts) with PSA'10, Gleason score'6 and/or T2b-T3 N0 M0 prostate(More)
82 Background: To report early and late toxicity and preliminary biochemical outcome in in a prospective serie of 445 patients with intermediate- or high-risk clinically localized prostate cancer treated with either HD-3D-CRT or with LD-3D-CRT+HDR-B. METHODS Between 12/1999 and 10/2005, 445 patients (pts) with PSA >10, Gleason score > 6 and/or T2b-T3 N0(More)
In this paper we study a system of equations concerning equilibrium positions of journal bearings. The problem consists of two surfaces in relative motion separated by a small distance filled with a lubricant. The shape of the inlet surface is circular, while the other surface has a more general shape. Our result shows the existence of at least one(More)
