The current status of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) among U.S. females was reviewed with the use of data abstracted from medical records of patients diagnosed with breast cancer between 1975 and 1981 in nine geographic areas covered by the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. Patients were selected on(More)
Touch is a fundamental, but complex, element of everyday interaction that impacts one's sensory and affective experience via interoceptive processing. The insular cortex is an integral component of the neural processes involved in interoception, i.e. the generation of an "emotional moment in time" through the sensing of the internal body state (Craig, A.D.,(More)
In order to better understand the effect of breast cancer screening on mortality, we use the theory of competing risks to analyse deaths from the long-term follow-up of the HIP breast cancer screening trial. We conclude that some, but not all, of the breast cancer cases detected early as a result of screening realized a benefit in terms of elimination of(More)
A number of studies have examined the perception of time with durations ranging from milliseconds to a few seconds, however the neural basis of these processes are still poorly understood and the neural substrates underlying the perception of multiple-second intervals are unknown. Here we present evidence of neural systems activity in circumscribed areas of(More)
The direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran has been approved for clinical use in many countries for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, there is no known reversal agent or proven management strategy, and the best laboratory marker of hemostatic impairment to use in guiding treatment is unknown. We(More)
AIMS The purpose of this review is to summarize the neural substrate dysfunctions and disrupted cognitive, affective and experiential processes observed in methamphetamine and cocaine-dependent individuals. METHODS We reviewed all publications in PubMed that conducted comparison studies between healthy volunteers and cocaine-, amphetamine- or(More)
