BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Glioma angiogenesis and its different hemodynamic features, which can be evaluated by using perfusion CT (PCT) imaging of the brain, have been correlated with the grade and the aggressiveness of gliomas. Our hypothesis was that quantitative estimation of permeability surface area product (PS), cerebral blood volume (CBV), cerebral(More)
The general transcription factor IIA (TFIIA) interacts with the TATA binding protein (TBP) and promoter DNA to mediate transcription activation in vitro. To determine if this interaction is generally required for activation of all class II genes in vivo, we have constructed substitution mutations in yeast TFIIA which compromise its ability to bind TBP.(More)
BACKGROUND Reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) allogeneic haemopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is increasingly considered as a therapeutic option for younger patients with poor-risk chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). In this retrospective analysis, we assessed the outcomes of CLL patients undergoing RIC allo-HCT compared with a group of matched(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiac arrest (CA) is associated with poor neurological outcome and is associated with a poor understanding of the cerebral hemodynamic and metabolic changes. The objective of this study was to determine the applicability of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), to observe the changes in cerebral total hemoglobin (T-Hb) reflecting cerebral blood(More)
CD31 gene polymorphisms are implicated in the pathogenesis of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) following haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HST). We investigated the influence of CD31 genotype on the incidence of GvHD following HST from an human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical sibling donor. Donor and recipient CD31 codons 125, 563 and 670 DNA(More)
