Enzyme-linked immunoadsorbent assay (EIA) has widespread use for the measurement of antibody concentration. The affinity constant (Kaff) of the antibody has an effect upon the quantification by EIA. It is thus important to be able to measure Kaff by solid-phase EIA. Based upon the Law of Mass Action and using serial dilutions of both antigens (coating the(More)
BACKGROUND Metaplastic breast carcinoma (MBC) is a rare poorly differentiated breast cancer characterized by coexistence of ductal carcinoma with areas of matrix producing, spindle-cell, sarcomatous, or squamous differentiation; ER/PR/HER2 negativity; and a reputation for poor outcome. METHODS The Swedish Cancer Institute prospective breast cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE The study objective was to assess the correlation between (18)F-FDG uptake values on positron emission mammography (PEM), expressed as maximum uptake value and lesion-to-background ratio, and receptor status (i.e., estrogen receptor [ER], progesterone receptor [PR], and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 [HER2]), tumor histology, and tumor(More)
Three cases of cutaneous angiosarcoma of the breast that arose in irradiated skin tissue in women who had previously undergone treatment for breast carcinoma are reported. A review of the literature identified 55 cases of cutaneous angiosarcoma following radiation therapy as part of the treatment of carcinoma of the breast. For all 58 assembled cases, the(More)
Over a 4-year period (1982 to 1986), 91 patients with solitary or multiple metastases from colorectal cancer were stratified, based on findings at laparotomy, to one of three groups and then prospectively randomized to one of two treatment arms within each group. Group A patients had solitary resectable metastases, group B patients had multiple, resectable(More)
A miniature, battery operated 40 kV x-ray device has been developed for the interstitial treatment of small tumors ( < 3 cm diam) in humans. X rays are emitted from the tip of a 10 cm long, 3 mm diameter probe that is stereotactically inserted into the tumor. The beam, characterized by half-value layer (HVL), spectrum analysis, and isodose contours, behaves(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the number of peer-reviewed publications arising from the abstracts presented at the annual meetings of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), and to assess urological trainees' attitudes to research in relationship to the pursuit of Specialist Registrar (SpR) training numbers and their perception of academic urology(More)

Physiol. 220(l) : 140-147. 1971 .-At pigeons’ body temperature (44 C) endolymph has a specific gravity of 1 .OO 17 and a viscosity of 1.19 cp (roughly twice the viscosity of water).(More)
Patients with primary, recurrent, or metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma were given injections of 200 micrograms of anticarcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) monoclonal antibody labeled with 2 mCi of 111In (Indacea). Patients were imaged at 24 and 48 h. Celiotomy was performed on 40 patients between 3 and 17 days post-Indacea injection. Of 16 primary tumors, 11(More)
Nutritional support is an important consideration in the management of the head and neck cancer patient. In our series, characteristics significantly associated with the need for long-term postoperative nutritional support included stage IV cancers, primary pharyngeal tumors, combined treatment utilizing surgery and radiotherapy, and preoperative weight(More)
