REPORTING PERIOD COVERED This report summarizes and reviews(More)
4513 Background: CCI-779 is an mTOR kinase inhibitor with activity in renal cell carcinoma (RCC, Atkins et al. J Clin Oncol, in press). A preliminary report of this phase 1/2 study of CCI-779 and interferon-α (IFN) in patients (pts) with advanced RCC described the safety and antitumor effects of the combination (Dutcher et al. Proc ASCO 22:213, 2003). We(More)
In recent decades, neonatal and postneonatal mortality rates have declined overall in the United States. Yet, the mortality rates for black infants continue to be approximately twice those for white infants. With the use of data from 45 of the 53 vital statistics reporting areas that participated in the 1980 National Infant Mortality Surveillance project,(More)
In 1980, there were 562,330 babies born in the United States to teenage mothers (19 years of age or younger). The offspring of teenage mothers have long been known to be at increased risk of infant mortality, largely because of their high prevalence of low birth weight (less than 2,500 grams). We used data from the National Infant Mortality Surveillance(More)
National statistics on the risk of infant mortality by birth weight were collected most recently in 1980 and 1960. (Infant mortality risk is the number of deaths of infants under 1 year of age per 1,000 live births.) In this 20-year period, the infant mortality risk (IMR) for single-delivery infants declined 53 percent, from 23.3 deaths per 1,000 live(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether previous cesarean delivery is an independent risk factor for ectopic pregnancy. METHODS We analyzed data collected between October 1988 and August 1990 from a case-control study of ectopic pregnancy among parous, black, non-Hispanic women, 18-44 years old, at a major metropolitan hospital in Georgia. Cases were 138 women(More)
A case-control study of hepatocellular adenoma (HCA), a serious though nonmalignant liver tumor, was conducted by the Center for Disease Control and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP). Interviews with 79 women with HCA and with 220 age- and neighborhood-matched controls were completed. Limited information was obtained on nine additional patients(More)
Although hysterectomy was the most frequently performed major surgical procedure among women of reproductive age during the past decade, few recent studies have been conducted to determine the risk of complications. We examined data from the Collaborative Review of Sterilization, a prospective, multicenter, observational study coordinated by the Centers for(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe patient characteristics and diagnoses associated with hysterectomy in the United States from 1988-1990 using data from the National Hospital Discharge Survey. METHODS We analyzed data from the National Hospital Discharge Survey, an annual probability sample of discharges from nonfederal, short-stay hospitals in the United States. A(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to assess the risk of ectopic pregnancy among women who smoke cigarettes. STUDY DESIGN We used data from a case-control study of ectopic pregnancy conducted from October 1988 to August 1990 at an inner-city hospital in Georgia. Cases were 196 non-Hispanic black women with a surgically confirmed ectopic pregnancy. Controls were(More)
