This preliminary study examined the effects of hearing loss and aging on the detection of AV asynchrony in hearing-impaired listeners with cochlear implants. Additionally, the relationship between AV asynchrony detection skills and speech perception was assessed. Individuals with normal-hearing and cochlear implant recipients were asked to make judgments(More)

One of the most promising strategies in cancer gene therapy is adenoviral transfer of proapoptotic genes. We therefore evaluated the novel strategy of adenovirally overexpressing the proapoptotic Bak gene. Our results showed marked apoptosis in cancer cells in vivo and in vitro after Bak gene transfer via a binary adenoviral vector system. This effect was(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal cancer (CRC) diagnoses and disease-specific survival (DSS) vary between ethnic groups in the United States. However, few studies have assessed differences among Asian subgroups. METHODS The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was used to identify patients with invasive CRC between 1988 and 2008. Differences in(More)
PURPOSE To study the impact of adjuvant trastuzumab among patients achieving a pathologic complete response (pCR) after trastuzumab-based neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NST). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with primary HER2-positive breast cancer treated with trastuzumab-based NST were categorised according to adjuvant trastuzumab administration and pCR(More)
BACKGROUND Ethnic disparities in breast cancer diagnoses and disease-specific survival (DSS) rates in the United States are well known. However, few studies have assessed differences specifically between Asians American(s) and other ethnic groups, particularly among Asian American(s) subgroups, in women aged 18-39 years. METHODS The Surveillance,(More)
This study examined the effects of hearing loss and aging on the detection of AV asynchrony in both normal hearing adults and hearing impaired listeners with cochlear implants. Additionally, the relationship between AV asynchrony detection skills and speech perception was assessed. Twenty-five cochlear implant users and 22 normal-hearing adults participated(More)
