UNLABELLED 18F-fluoro-deoxy-glucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography-scan (PET/CT) is used increasingly for detection of cancer. Precise diagnostic assessment of tumour extension in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is of critical importance for ensuring that patients receive proper treatment. Preliminary studies have shown(More)
A multiphoton excitation-based fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy method, Raster image correlation spectroscopy (RICS), was used to measure the local diffusion coefficients of distinct model fluorescent substances in excised human skin. In combination with structural information obtained by multiphoton excitation fluorescence microscopy imaging, the(More)
PURPOSE To validate lymphatic mapping combined with sentinel lymph node biopsy as a staging procedure, and to evaluate the possible clinical implications of added oblique lymphoscintigraphy and/or tomography and test the intra- and interobserver reproducibility of lymphoscintigraphy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty patients (17 F and 23 M, aged 32-90) with 24(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Significant tumour progression was observed during waiting time for treatment of head and neck cancer. To reduce waiting times, a Danish national policy of fast track accelerated clinical pathways was introduced in 2007. This study describes changes in waiting time and the potential influence of fast track by comparing waiting times in(More)
This study examined the in vitro percutaneous penetration of five pesticides covering a wide range of solubilities and different molecular weights, which allowed discussion of penetration of single pesticides as well as a comparison between penetration characteristics of different pesticides. The five pesticides were the fungicides methiocarb, pirimicarb(More)
Protease nexin-1 (PN-1) belongs to the serpin family of serine protease inhibitors. It is the phylogenetically closest relative of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1). Whilst there are numerous studies of the occurrence and functions of PAI-1 in cancer, a possible tumour biological role of PN-1 has been almost totally neglected. We have now compared(More)
Protective gloves are used to reduce dermal exposure when managing chemical exposures at the work place. Different glove materials may offer different degrees of protection. The present study combined the traditional ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) model with the Franz diffusion cell to evaluate overall penetration through glove and skin(More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the diagnostic accuracy of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SNB) in patients with penile cancer and assess SNB complications in a national multicentre setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospectively data were collected from records in four university centres by one medical doctor covering all SNBs performed in Denmark between 1 January(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNA (miRNA) expression is broadly altered in cancer, but few studies have investigated miRNA deregulation in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Epigenetic mechanisms are involved in the regulation of >30 miRNA genes in a range of tissues, and we aimed to investigate this further in OSCC. METHODS TaqMan® qRT-PCR arrays and individual(More)
BACKGROUND Inactivation of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene results in accumulation and translocation of beta-Catenin, which are important for malignant development. The aim of the present study is to investigate the possible role of APC/beta-Catenin pathway in oral squamous cell carcinomas. METHODS The DNA from 34 patients was examined for loss(More)
