Bacterial and fungal infections are the main cause of morbidity and mortality in neutropenic patients. To resolve infections, an adequate number of functional granulocytes is required. Successful treatment of severe infections with granulocyte transfusions is strongly dependent on an adequate number of transfused cells. In this study, 42 neutropenic(More)
BACKGROUND The increase in portal vascular resistance is a significant complication of metastatic disease to the liver or locally advanced cancer, e.g., biliary cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS This paper describes the successful palliative treatment of two cancer patients with portal hypertension presenting with the symptoms of tense ascites, mesenteric(More)
Histological changes in tracheobronchial and bronchopulmonary lymph nodes of patients with operable (i.e. stages T1/2, N0/1, M0) bronchogenic squamous cell carcinoma were examined histometrically. Out of 29 patients, 10 survived less than 12 months and 19 lived longer than two years after surgery. Quantitative methods were employed for measuring structural(More)
The present study sought to investigate the contributions of the dorsal prelimbic/anterior cingulate and ventral prelimbic/infralimbic cortices to the reverse microdialysis of amphetamine (1, 10, 100, 500, and 1000 microM) on dialysate acetylcholine, choline, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels. The results demonstrate that basal levels of acetylcholine,(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine associations between intimate partner violence (IPV) against Indian women and risk of death among their infants and children, as well as related gender-based disparities.

High-dose interleukin-2 (IL-2) treatment has demonstrated promising antitumour activity in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and malignant melanoma (MM) and has been shown to induce broad immunological effects. The optimal IL-2 dose and schedule, however, still remain to be defined. We studied a treatment protocol consisting of five repetitive cycles of high-dose(More)
A report is given about a 53 years old man with a "stagnant loop syndrome" associated with a diverticulosis of the whole small intestine and colon. Steatorrhoea was the main clinical symptom. The classification, distribution and frequency of intestinal diverticulosis is based on radiological results. The pathological values of the absorption tests prompted(More)
