The aim of this study was to determine the survival benefit of a planned follow-up program. METHODS Three hundred twenty-five patients who underwent curative resection of colorectal cancer were prospectively randomized(More)
Syncoilin is a 64-kDa intermediate filament protein expressed in skeletal muscle and enriched at the perinucleus, sarcolemma, and myotendinous and neuromuscular junctions. Due to its pattern of cellular localization and binding partners, syncoilin is an ideal candidate to be both an important structural component of myocytes and a potential mediator of(More)
Chemically altered hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers have been developed as prototype blood substitutes. Such molecules may affect numerous biological processes, since free hemoglobin scavenges nitric oxide (NO). Diaspirin cross-linked hemoglobin (DCLHb) is a chemically cross-linked molecule, which has a pressor effect on blood pressure, mainly mediated by(More)
