A schwannoma arising from the dorsum of the pontomedullary junction and presenting as an exophytic mass in the fourth ventricle is described. A ventricular schwannoma has not previously been reported in the literature. The presenting clinical and radiographic features and the pathology of this tumor are summarized, and an explanation is sought for its(More)
PURPOSE Phenylbutyrate (PB) is an aromatic fatty acid with multiple mechanisms of action including histone deacetylase inhibition. Preclinically, PB demonstrates both cytotoxic and differentiating effects at a concentration of 0.5 mM. We conducted a Phase I trial of p.o. PB patients with refractory solid tumor malignancies to evaluate toxicity,(More)
PURPOSE Sodium phenylbutyrate (PB) demonstrates potent differentiating capacity in multiple hematopoietic and solid tumor cell lines. We conducted a Phase I and pharmacokinetic study of PB by continuous infusion to characterize the maximum tolerated dose, toxicities, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor effects in patients with refractory solid tumors.

The objective of this study was to examine the pharmacokinetics of intravenous dalteparin (Fragmin, Pharmacia-Upjohn, Peapack, NJ) and to assess the accuracy of standard coagulation-based monitoring techniques as an estimate of drug concentration with which to guide dosing. Knowledge of the kinetic behavior of low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) and the(More)
PURPOSE To report the benefits of rheolytic thrombectomy for treating aortic endograft thrombosis. METHODS Of 40 patients who received the Ancure bifurcated endograft to treat abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) during a 9-month period, 6 (15%) patients (6 men; mean age 62.6 years, range 53-77) developed thrombosis of the endograft at an average of 9 weeks(More)
This study investigated the association between time at onset of circulating microbubbles (CMB) and symptoms of altitude decompression sickness (DCS), using Cox proportional hazard regression models. The study population consisted of 125 individuals who participated in direct ascent, simulated extravehicular activities profiles. Using individual CMB status(More)
The syndrome of sudden cardiac death in southeast Asians has only recently been given attention in the American medical literature. This case report describes a patient who presented with this rare syndrome. The physical examination, Holter monitor, 2-D echocardiogram, exercise treadmill test, radionuclide ventriculogram, coronary angiography, and(More)
Transient myeloproliferative disease (TMD) of the newborn is a rare hematologic abnormality associated with trisomy 21. It is frequently difficult to distinguish the disorder from true congenital leukemia (TCL). Unlike leukemia, which has a clinically aggressive course, TMD generally resolves within weeks to months. We present a case of TMD of the newborn(More)
