OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE A rare case of dura-based primary cerebral Hodgkin's disease clinically and radiographically indistinguishable from a meningioma is described. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 55-year-old immunocompetent woman presented with headaches and ataxia. Magnetic resonance images demonstrated a circumscribed diffusely enhancing mass with a dural(More)
BACKGROUND Catheter ablation of accessory pathways (APs) provides a definitive therapy for patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. The reported incidence of thrombus formation on ablation-induced injuries with direct current shock varies from 0%-20% in animal studies. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of mural thrombus(More)
Site-directed mutagenesis studies of bovine pancreatic phospholipase A2 (PLA2, overproduced in Escherichia coli) showed that replacement of surface residue Lys-56 by a neutral or hydrophobic amino acid residue resulted in an unexpected and significant change in the function of the enzyme. The kcat for phosphatidylcholine micelles increases 3-4-fold for(More)
A previous interim report of MM-011, the first study that combined lenalidomide with anthracycline-based chemotherapy followed by lenalidomide maintenance for relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM), showed promising safety and activity. We report the long-term outcomes of all 76 treated patients with follow-up ≥ 5 years. This single-center phase(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies show that the clinical criteria known as the Ottawa ankle rules (OAR), used for determining the need for radiographs of the ankle when a fracture is suspected, have a sensitivity of 100%, a specificity of 50%, and an overall reduction in radiographs of the ankle of 28%. The purpose of this study was to further assess the clinical(More)
Coronary sinus (CS) diverticula have been reported to be the anatomic basis of some posteroseptal accessory atrioventricular pathways. During 1 year, 53 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome referred to our center for catheter ablation were found to have posteroseptal or left posterior accessory pathways. The accessory pathway was associated with an(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a prototypic autoimmune disease characterized by antibodies to DNA (anti-DNA). Although these antibodies have features of antigen drive, the source of this DNA is not defined. To assess the potential role of foreign and self-DNA as driving antigens, the specificity of SLE sera for bacterial and mammalian DNA was(More)
UNLABELLED For many years, 32P-chromic phosphate (32P-CP) intraperitoneal instillations and platinum analogue chemotherapy have been used to treat disseminated ovarian cancer. To investigate possible enhancement of 32P-CP irradiation due to the concomitant administration of chemotherapy, in vitro studies were undertaken. Based on those laboratory(More)
INTRODUCTION Randomized studies have shown that bortezomib (BTZ) can be given weekly via intravenous (IV) route or twice weekly via subcutaneous (SC) route with lower neuropathy risk and no loss of anti-myeloma efficacy compared to original standard IV twice weekly schedule. Weekly SC should therefore yield the best therapeutic index and is widely used but(More)
Over 200 young mature and mature CF1 mice were ovariectomized and their uterine horns implanted bilaterally with circa 2 mg methylcholanthrene (MCA) by trocar. Subcutaneous injections of 20 mcg diethylstilbestrol in 0.05 ml oil were then made 3x weekly in equivalent groups for 0, 4, 6, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20 weeks. All animals died or were sacrificed(More)
