BACKGROUND Primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) is a common clinical problem and its incidence is thought to be increasing. The risk of recurrence is high and various studies quote rates of 20-60%. Factors which may or may not predispose to recurrence have not yet been established. METHODS In a study period of four years 291 cases with a diagnosis of(More)
In at least 98% of fragile X syndrome cases, the disease results from expansion of the CGG repeat in the 5' end of FMR1. The use of microsatellite markers in the FMR1 region has revealed a disparity of risk between haplotypes for CGG repeat expansion. Although instability appears to depend on both the haplotype and the AGG interspersion pattern of the(More)
Targeting multiple regulators of tumor angiogenesis have the potential to improve treatment efficacy. Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody directed against vascular endothelial growth factor and ABT-510 is a synthetic analog of thrombospondin, an endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor. Dual inhibition may result in additional benefit. We evaluated the safety,(More)
Fourteen patients suffering from advanced colorectal (n = 7), pancreatic (n = 4) or gastric (n = 3) carcinomas received treatment with microencapsulated octreotide pamoate 90 mg i.m. every 4 weeks (n = 4), 160 mg i.m. every 4 weeks (n = 4) or 160 mg i.m. every 2 weeks (n = 6). Two patients had stable disease, one for 4 and one for 6 months. Plasma(More)
Previous experimental research in other topic areas has shown that the choice of response alternatives can influence respondents' reporting of the frequency of vaguely defined events and that the set of response alternatives is treated as information in the interpretation of the question. The aim of this study was to examine whether such affects would occur(More)
