The treatment of seminoma with radiation therapy risks transient infertility. We have prospectively followed eight patients with stage I seminoma of the testicle. All patients underwent radical orchiectomy of the affected testis. The mean age of the patients was 32.9 years (range 24-40). Each patient was treated with megavoltage radiation with a 10- or(More)
OBJECTIVES This was a prospective, randomized, controlled study designed to determine the effect of resistance exercise training on bone metabolism in heart transplant recipients. BACKGROUND Osteoporosis frequently complicates heart transplantation. No preventative strategy is generally accepted for glucocorticoid-induced bone loss. METHODS Sixteen male(More)
Gallium nitrate was administered as a 700-mg/m2 iv bolus infusion over 15-30 minutes every 2 weeks to 138 patients with malignant lymphoproliferative diseases. Responses occurred in patients with well-differentiated lymphomas (five responses among eight patients), but the drug produced few responses in any other group of patients. Toxic effects were(More)
Three proposed quantitative markers for candidiasis, arabinitol, mannose, and mannan in serum, are compared in 50 normal blood donors and 38 high-risk patients, 23 with and 15 without invasive candidiasis. Arabinitol concentrations in serum, the arabinitol/creatinine ratio, and mannose concentrations in serum were significantly greater in the 15 patients(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of resistance exercise training (ET) on glucocorticoid-induced myopathy in heart transplant recipients (HTR), 14 male HTR were randomly assigned to a ET group that trained for 6 months (54 +/- 3 yr old; mean +/- SD) or a control group (51 +/- 8 yr old; mean +/- SD). METHODS Fat mass, fat-free mass, and total body mass were(More)
A method was devised to simulate patients with breast cancer in the actual treatment position utilizing a diagnostic CT spiral scanner, 3-D Image Workstation for virtual simulation, and a laser coordinate system to transfer planning parameters to the patient's skin. It was desired to produce non-divergent tangential beams through the lung as well as a(More)
This report describes two cases of giant lymph node hyperplasia (GLNH) with unusual clinicopathologic features, both studied with immunohistochemical techniques. In the first case, mesenteric GLNH was associated with amyloidosis and the nephrotic syndrome. In the second, GLNH developed in a patient with previously treated Hodgkin's disease. In both cases,(More)
Standard tests and two enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) were compared for detecting systemic candidiasis in 92 leukemic patients. Antibodies to Candida were detected by immunodiffusion (ID), latex agglutination (LA), and indirect ELISA; antigenemia was evaluated by indirect ELISA inhibition. In 48 patients without candidiasis (group 1), sera from(More)
