Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can regress adenomas in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), and the mechanism involves inhibition of cyclooxygenases (COX). Reactive intermediates formed during the arachidonic acid cascade, notably by COX-2, which is upregulated in polyps of FAP patients, may promote various stages of the polyp(More)
BACKGROUND An explicit process of collaborative (shared) decision making involving the patient and physician has been recommended for discretionary surgical procedures in which small-area analysis demonstrates high variation not attributable to differences in the patient population in the area. One such example is laminectomy for lumbar herniated disk (HD).(More)
Coxsackie adenovirus receptor (CAR) is the primary receptor to which oncolytic adenoviruses have to bind for internalization and viral replication. A total of 171 neuroendocrine lung tumors in form of multitissue arrays have been analyzed resulting in a positivity of 112 cases (65.5%). Immunostaining correlated statistically significant with histopathology(More)
The fate of CGP 38 560 [N-(2-(R)-benzyl-3-tert-butyl-sulfonyl-propionyl)-His-ChacVal-n-bu tylamine], a potent renin inhibitor, has been studied in marmosets. [3H]CGP 38 560 is rapidly cleared from the plasma. The elimination process is biphasic, with a t1/2 of 4.8 +/- 1.0 min (mean +/- SD) in the first phase and 26.6 +/- 8.4 min (mean +/- SD) in the second.(More)
