BACKGROUND Prostate cancer overdiagnosis and overtreatment represents a major problem. Many men with low-grade disease on biopsy are undergraded and they harbour high-grade disease at prostatectomy with no reliable way to identify these men. We used a novel urine-based 2-gene methylation test to identify prostate cancers with aggressive features. METHODS(More)
In mouse and rat embryos, the embryonic disc develops within a cup-shaped "egg cylinder" and consists of an inner layer of ectoderm and an outer layer of endoderm. Because of this configuration, the embryo first develops in a dorsally flexed position and then undergoes "axial rotation" to a ventrally flexed position. In the present study, we first analyzed(More)
The toxic and teratogenic effects of inhaled anesthetics were assessed in an in vivo assay using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Eggs were exposed during development (metamorphosis) to enflurane, isoflurane or halothane at a vapor concentration of 0.1 or 0.2% (v/v), to fluroxene at 0.025 or 0.05% (v/v), or to nitrous oxide at 20 or 40% (v/v).

Day 11 rat embryos produced by overnight and morning short-period breeding regimens were compared for differences in interlitter variability and stage of development. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were mated either overnight (5 PM-9 AM, n = 22) or for 3 hr in the morning (8-10 AM, n = 20), and the presence of a vaginal plug was determined (day 0). At 11 AM on(More)

Because there is no standard developmental staging system for the early postimplantation period of rodent embryos, investigators must now choose between a variety of systems that differ significantly. We have reviewed many of these staging systems and have summarized the ambiguities within them and the inconsistencies among them. In order to compare(More)
