PURPOSE Breast cancer frequently overexpresses the product of the HER2 proto-oncogene, a 185-kd growth factor receptor (p185HER2). The recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody (rhuMAb) HER2 has high affinity for p185HER2 and inhibits the growth of breast cancer cells that overexpress HER2. We evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of weekly intravenous(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become an important diagnostic tool with a wide variety of clinical applications. This article provides a qualitative description of physical principles of MRI fundamental to an appreciation of the capabilities and limitations of this complex technology. The same physical principles are used to explain the appearance of(More)
The HER2/neu proto-oncogene is overexpressed in 25% to 30% of patients with breast cancer. Trastuzumab (Herceptin; Genentech, San Francisco, CA), a recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody with high affinity for the HER2 protein, inhibits the growth of breast cancer cells overexpressing HER2. In this phase II study the efficacy and toxicity of weekly(More)
A method of quantifying the risk of complication following penetrating abdominal trauma is described. A trauma index score was calculated by assigning a risk factor (1-5) to each organ injured and then multiplying this by a severity of injury estimate (1-5). The sum of the individual organ scores comprised the final penetrating trauma index (P.A.T.I.). A(More)
A 4 year experience with 245 patients with isolated lower thoracic or anterior abdominal gunshot wounds was reviewed. Twenty-three (16 percent) of the 144 abdominal injuries were clinically superficial and all were managed successfully nonoperatively. Of the remaining 121 patients, 115 were confirmed to have peritoneal violation at laparotomy and 111 (96(More)
The purpose of this interdisciplinary descriptive study was to examine the perceptions of nurses, school personnel, and parents about school reentry for children with cancer and to determine whether activities and services performed supported school reentry. The study also investigated parents' perception of the impact of cancer on their child's academic(More)
Advances in prehospital emergency care have increased the numbers of patients arriving at the hospital with immediate life-threatening trauma. This is a review of our recent 6-year experience with 161 major abdominal vascular injuries in 123 patients. The distribution by injury site and respective mortality were: 18, aortic (56%); 39, aortic branch (37%);(More)
An echo planar linewidth mapping technique, Shufflebutt, has allowed temporal measurements of changes in linewidth caused by static inhomogeneities (delta LWSI) and transverse relaxation rate (delta R2) in models of hypoxia and hypercapnia. We demonstrate these changes are due to intravascular susceptibility differences/(delta chi) between the blood and(More)
This article highlights trends in heart and lung transplantation between 1997 and 2006, drawing on data from the OPTN and SRTR. The total number of candidates actively awaiting heart transplantation declined by 45% over the last decade, dropping from 2414 patients in 1997 to 1327 patients in 2006. The overall death rates among patients awaiting heart(More)
