• Background: No study of the radiosensitivity of uveal melanoma cells and their survival curve has been published. The purpose of this study was to investigate the sensitivity to different single radiation doses of SP6.5, a human uveal melanoma cell line. • Methods: Cells were irradiated with cobalt-60 at doses from 0 to 1200 cGy. Radiosensitivity was(More)
We report the clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and electron microscopic study of two cases of juxtaglomerular cell tumor of the kidney with a hitherto unreported dominant papillary pattern. Both tumors were associated with high blood pressure that did not respond to medical therapy, but that returned to normal after removal of the kidney. They were(More)
The authors report their observations on acute myeloid leukemias associated with the 8;21 translocation. Two cases have less than the required percentage of blasts for the cytological diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. In one case, the 8;21 translocation is superimposed on a constitutional trisomy 21. Conclusions from the 4th International Workshop on(More)
The concept of the neuromatrix assumes that all behaviours are associated with complex spatiotemporal electromagnetic fields within the brain. The same complex magnetic field can be supported potentially by different mosaics of neuronal associations and result in the same behaviours. In the present study the accuracy of long-term and short-term spatial(More)
