PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to assess the possible benefit of the combination vinorelbine (NVB)-cisplatin (DDP) in comparison with NVB alone in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), not treated previously. It also involved confirmation of the efficacy of vinorelbine as monotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this phase III trial, 231 eligible(More)
This study aimed to analyze the treatment and outcomes of older glioblastoma patients. Forty-four patients older than 70 years of age were referred to the Paul Strauss Center for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The median age was 75.5 years old (range: 70-84), and the patients included 18 females and 26 males. The median Karnofsky index (KI) was 70%. The(More)
Purpose of this study was to determine the effect of waiting time for radiotherapy on overall survival of patients with glioblastoma treated in the EORTC-NCIC trial at 18 centers in France. A total of 400 adult patients with glioblastoma who were treated between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2006 were included. There were 282 patients with “minimum(More)
BACKGROUND The value of a risk factor analysis in the presence of a clinically suspected deep venous thrombosis (DVT) has been assessed mainly in inpatient populations. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the potential association between DVT and acquired circumstances suspected as risk factors, in a cohort of outpatients with a clinically(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the prognostic factors and survival of a series of 777 patients with brain metastases (BM) from a single institution. METHODS AND MATERIALS Patients were treated with surgery followed by whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) or with WBRT alone in 16.3% and 83.7% of the cases, respectively. The patients were RPA(More)
Previous studies have suggested the utility of D-Dimer ELISA assays in eliminating a diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE). Our objectives were to evaluate the performance of a new, rapid, quantitative, and automated Liatest D-Dimer Assay in patients with suspected PE. Three hundred eighty-six consecutive patients referred to our institution between March(More)
In previous studies, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) for plasma D-dimer analysis have demonstrated high sensitivity, suggesting their potential usefulness in excluding deep venous thrombosis (DVT). We evaluated the usefulness of a new D-dimer test (Liatest D-dimer) for suspected DVT in a prospective study of patients admitted to the hospital(More)
Between April, 1981, and December, 1982, 32 patients with squamous cell bronchial carcinoma were treated with a chemotherapy regimen followed by operation. The preoperative chemotherapeutic agents used were cisplatin, bleomycin, and mitomycin C. A thoracotomy was performed 3 to 4 weeks after the last day of the last treatment. Of the 29 undergoing(More)

A description of a usual day at work suggested that the symptoms worsened while he was sawing corrugated fiber cement. Baseline spirometry was normal, and(More)
