BACKGROUND The survival of patients with diffuse large-B-cell lymphoma after chemotherapy is influenced by molecular features of the tumors. We used the gene-expression profiles of these lymphomas to develop a molecular predictor of survival. METHODS Biopsy samples of diffuse large-B-cell lymphoma from 240 patients were examined for gene expression with(More)
The inferior parietal lobule (IPL) is a functionally and anatomically heterogeneous region that is concerned with multiple aspects of sensory processing and sensorimotor integration. Although considerable information is available about the corticocortical connections to the IPL, much less is known about the origin and importance of subcortical inputs to(More)
The purpose of these experiments was to study the subcortical input to the frontal eye field (FEF) and to determine which subcortical structures might project to the FEF via pathways that contain only a single intervening synapse. We used retrograde transneuronal transport of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) to label second-order neurons that send(More)
There are multiple distinct regions, or eye fields, in the cerebral cortex that contribute directly to the initiation and control of voluntary eye movements. We concentrate on six of these: the frontal eye field, parietal eye field, supplementary eye field, middle superior temporal area, prefrontal eye field, and area 7 m (precuneus in humans). In each of(More)
We used gene expression profiling to establish a molecular diagnosis of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), to elucidate its pathogenesis, and to predict the length of survival of these patients. An MCL gene expression signature defined a large subset of MCLs that expressed cyclin D1 and a novel subset that lacked cyclin D1 expression. A precise measurement of(More)
Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in children occurs as two major histological subtypes, embryonal (ERMS) and alveolar (ARMS). ERMS is associated with an 11p15.5 loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and may be confused with nonmyogenic, non-RMS soft tissue sarcomas. ARMS expresses the product of a genomic translocation that fuses FOXO1 (FKHR) with either PAX3 or PAX7 (P-F);(More)
1. Visual attention is often profoundly disturbed in humans after damage to the cortex of the posterior parietal lobe, particularly of the minor hemisphere, with some patients being totally unaware of visual stimuli in the hemifield of extrapersonal space contralateral to the cortical damage. This severe form of visual inattention is usually called(More)
Grade 3 follicular lymphoma (FL3) is thought to have an aggressive clinical course. On the basis of possible biologic differences, the new World Health Organization (WHO) classification of lymphoma suggests further subdivision of FL3 into grades 3a and 3b and states that the percentage of involvement by diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) should also be(More)
1. Monkeys were trained to perform horizontal visually guided saccades. Latency was measured before and after bilateral lesions of the frontal eye field (FEF) and after combined lesions of both the FEF and the posterior eye field. Destruction of either of these regions alone causes only modest deficits of eye movement, but destruction of both together(More)
Discussions of the cortical control of eye movement have generally attributed the generation of saccadic movements to the frontal eye fields (FEF) and the control of pursuit movements to posterior parietal or prestriate cortex. Monkeys were trained to perform a series of oculomotor tasks, including both saccade and pursuit paradigms. Surgical ablation of(More)
