Seminoma and sarcoidosis do not seem to be associated diseases, judging from epidemiologic data. The presence of these two diseases in the patient whose case is reported may have been coincidental. It was observed, however, that when the testis tumor appeared in this patient, the longstanding sarcoid lesions significantly increased. The patient developed(More)
We present the clinical history of a 39-year-old woman, who has survived for over 10 years with metastatic breast cancer. After combined surgery and radiotherapy of the primary tumor and the regional lymph nodes, all bone metastases gradually disappeared under chemotherapy and continuing hormonal treatment. This complete remission included a large(More)
Increased hepatic uptake and absent bone marrow uptake on bone marrow immunoscintigraphy has been reported after the formation of human antimurine antibodies. A case of generalized bone marrow metastases is presented, in whom an elevated liver uptake on bone marrow immunoscintigraphy proved to be associated with extramedullary hematopoiesis. Extramedullary(More)
Background: Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are transmembrane receptors that activate cells of the innate immune systems upon recognition of pathogen-associated molecular patterns. The TLR4 is an essential component of the innate immune response to various microorganisms. We investigated the impact of TLR4 polymorphism on development of opportunistic diseases in(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the antipyretic effect of alpha-methyl-4-(2-thienylcarbonyl)-phenyl acetic acid (suprofen, Suprol) 300 mg suppositories compared to placebo in patients with fever of various etiology. The trial was designed as a randomized double-blind study including 30 patients per treatment group. After insertion of the(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the possible quantification of vertebral residual bone marrow content relative to the bone marrow content of a non-irradiated vertebra. This method is based on the vertebral count activity, measured using radioimmune bone marrow scintigraphy. First, however, we had to evaluate intra- and inter-observer variability. In(More)
