PURPOSE We performed a randomized trial to compare survival distributions and toxicity of radiation therapy (RT) and PCNU with those of RT and carmustine (BCNU) in patients with malignant glioma. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 346 patients with histologically verified supratentorial grade 3 and grade 4 astrocytoma were studied. After surgery, patients(More)
BACKGROUND Preterm birth is a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Whether the rate of preterm birth can be reduced by frequent contact between nurses and pregnant women or home monitoring of uterine activity is not known. METHODS We randomly assigned 2422 pregnant women with known risk factors for preterm labor (including 844 women who were(More)
Herpes genitalis is commonly seen by the obstetrician-gynecologist. Prolonged persistence of herpes is unusual and may herald an underlying disorder. A case of chronic primary herpes is presented, in which the diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome was delayed because of a low degree of suspicion.
Astronauts experience weightlessness-induced bone loss due to an unbalanced process of bone remodeling that involves bone mesenchymal stem cells (bMSCs), as well as osteoblasts, osteocytes, and osteoclasts. The effects of microgravity on osteo-cells have been extensively studied, but it is only recently that consideration has been given to the role of bone(More)
Physiological modifications in near weightlessness, as experienced by astronauts during space flight, have been the subject of numerous studies. Various animal models have been used on space missions or in microgravity simulation on ground to understand the effects of gravity on living animals. Here, we used the zebrafish larvae as a model to study the(More)
