INTRODUCTION We carried out an analysis of the United States Renal Data System to determine the incidence, risk factors, prognosis, and costs associated with the diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) after kidney transplantation. METHODS This is a retrospective cohort of 40,821 Medicare primary renal transplant recipients transplanted from January 1,(More)
We have shown that adoptive transfer of tumor-sensitized lymphocytes activated in vitro with bryostatin-1 and ionomycin (B/I), and expanded in culture, can induce regression of small established tumors. We set out to determine whether similar treatment would be effective against larger tumors and what cells mediate this effect. We also attempted to shorten(More)
Monitoring response to treatment is a key element in the management of breast cancer that involves several different viewpoints from surgery, radiology, and medical oncology. In the adjuvant setting, appropriate surgical and pathological evaluation guides adjuvant treatment and follow up care focuses on detecting recurrent disease with the intention of(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies have demonstrated that alpha1-adrenoceptor activation increases myocardial resistance to ischemic injury 24 hours later. Here we tested the hypothesis that delayed protection is associated with limited infarction and involves altered expression of pro-apoptotic and/or anti-apoptotic proteins. METHODS Rabbits were treated with(More)
Pharmacologic agents such as bryostatin 1 (bryostatin) can regulate cell activation, growth, and differentiation by modulating the activities of protein kinase C isoenzymes. Inhibition of growth of tumor cells and activation of T lymphocytes in vitro are the most recognized consequences of bryostatin treatment. The effect of bryostatin on T cells ranges(More)
OBJECTIVES The depressed myocardial function observed in brain dead organ donors has been attributed to massive sympathetic discharge and catecholamine cardiotoxicity. Because elevated catecholamines are associated with altered myocardial gene expression, we investigated whether acute brain death from increased intracranial pressure alters the expression of(More)
BACKGROUND Alpha-adrenergic stimulation induces protection in reperfused ischemic (I/R) myocardium 24 hours later. We tested the hypothesis that phenylephrine improves dysfunction after global I/R by limiting cell death not stunning. METHODS Rabbits were pretreated with either phenylephrine or vehicle. Twenty-four hours later, isolated hearts underwent(More)
The main goal of follow-up care after breast cancer treatment is the early detection of disease recurrence. In this review, we emphasize the multidisciplinary approach to this continuity of care from surgery, medical oncology, and radiology. Challenges within each setting are briefly addressed as a means of discussion for the future directions of an(More)
Early detection of breast cancer recurrence is a key element of follow-up care and surveillance after completion of primary treatment. The goal is to improve survival by detecting and treating recurrent disease while potentially still curable assuming a more effective salvage surgery and treatment. In this review, we present the current guidelines for early(More)
In the prior review, we outlined the current standard of care for monitoring treatment responses in breast cancer and discussed the many challenges associated with these strategies. We described the challenges faced in common clinical settings such as the adjuvant setting, neoadjuvant setting, and the metastatic setting. In this review, we will expand upon(More)
