In order to measure the absolute ventricular volumes in ml we developed a method using the numerical prints of CT (EMI, CT 1000) on which--by comparing with corresponding Polaroid photos--the margin between brain tissue and ventricles was drawn. For further evaluation, a curve digitizer and a digital computer were used. In 51 patients without any abnormal(More)
BACKGROUND Neonatal necrotising enterocolitis is a serious, commonly fatal disease in premature neonates. Although feeding with expressed breast milk and other good nursery practices are partly protective, preventive measures are needed. Treating neonates enterally with a mixture of human IgA and IgG, prepared from donated blood, has been claimed to protect(More)
Gross cystic disease fluid protein 15 (GCDFP-15), which is regulated by the androgen receptor (AR), is a diagnostic marker for mammary differentiation in histopathology. We determined the expression of GCDFP-15 in breast cancer subtypes, its potential prognostic and predictive value, as well as its relationship to AR expression. 602 pre-therapeutic breast(More)
In normal dogs, bolus administration of a very high dose of mannitol (2 gm/kg) resulted in a small, transient increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) of approximately 8 percent lasting less than 10 minutes followed by a significant reduction in CBF of approximately 20 percent lasting at least three hours. The increase in CBF may in part be related to changes(More)
BACKGROUND Women with node-positive vulvar cancer have a high risk for disease recurrence. Indication criteria for adjuvant radiotherapy are controversial. This study was designed to further understand the role of adjuvant therapy in node-positive disease. METHODS Patients with primary squamous-cell vulvar cancer treated at 29 gynecologic cancer centers(More)
In normal dogs, the continuous infusion of 2 g of mannitol per kg resulted in a transient increase in cerebral blood flow of approximately 30%, which was accompanied by a concomitant reduction in cerebrovascular resistance. These changes were maximal 30 minutes after the infusion was initiated and resolved by 180 minutes. The changes were not related to(More)
Gammahydroxybutyric acid has been proposed as an alternative to high-dose barbiturate therapy for protecting the brain after ischemic or traumatic insult. The cerebral and systemic metabolic and vascular effects of gammahydroxybutyrate and its lactone analogue, gammabutyrolactone, are addressed in this paper. In anesthetized normal dogs,(More)
