The incidence of bacterial pneumonia is increased in alcoholic patients. Alcohol consumption has been shown to impair cytokine production. Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) are critical for host defense against Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae). In order to examine the influence of alcohol on the immune response to(More)
OBJECTIVE Saline infusion is widely used to prevent contrast media (CM)-induced acute kidney injury, because it fosters diuresis. Osmodiuretics have a stronger diuretic effect than saline, yet previous trials indicate that osmodiuretic mannitol tends to promote rather than to prevent CM-induced acute kidney injury. However, these studies used hypertonic(More)
OBJECTIVE Hydration is widely accepted as an effective measure to prevent contrast media (CM)-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). Whether bicarbonate (NaHCO₃) infusion has a greater effect than saline is disputed. Effective prevention of CM-induced AKI by NaHCO₃ has been found by several clinical trials. However, others found either no effect or an enhanced(More)

A method has been proposed to determine the degree of linear polarization of a coherent bremsstrahlung (CB) based on the analysis of the shape of the photon energy spectrum. This method has been tested by comparison with a direct polarization measurement using an azimuthal asymmetry of incoherent e+e− pair production, applied first time for this purpose.(More)
Results are presented for [C ii] 158μm line fluxes observed with the Herschel PACS instrument in 112 sources with both starburst and active galactic nucleus (AGN) classifications, of which 102 sources have confident detections. Results are compared with mid-infrared spectra from the Spitzer Infrared Spectrometer and with Lir from IRAS fluxes; AGN/starburst(More)
BACKGROUND Giant cell tumor of bone (GCT) is a rare primary bone tumor, which can metastasize and undergo malignant transformation. The standard treatment of GCT is surgery. In patients with unresectable or metastatic disease, additional therapeutic options are available. These include blocking of the receptor activator of NF-kappa B ligand (RANKL)(More)
BACKGROUND With advances in diagnostics and treatment approaches, patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) in developed countries can nowadays expect to have excellent outcomes. However, information about the characteristics and outcomes in the developing world is very scarce, and this is important given the fact that there are several reports about(More)
