Seventy-four patients from January 1975 through December 1982, with clinical Stage III Mo non-small cell carcinoma of the lung were treated at our Medical Center with a course of pre-operative radiation therapy to be followed by surgical resection. Radiation therapy consisted of delivering a total dose of 40 Gy with 200 cGy per fraction over a period of 4(More)
The effect of p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) on the acquisition of a conditioned avoidance response in the rat was examined. Eleven rats were injected with saline or 2 X 10 mg/kg of PCA i.p. on two consecutive days and the learning procedure was started eight days later and lasted for six days. The acquisition of the conditioned avoidance response was strongly(More)
Yeast two-hybrid based systems are powerful tools for the detection and characterization of protein-protein interactions (PPIs). However, some important protein classes, e.g., integral membrane proteins and transcription factors, are difficult to study using these technologies. To overcome these limitations, we have employed a novel protein complementation(More)
Anastomotic leakage following colorectal resection remains one of the most significant complications with relevant morbidity and mortality. There is evidence that a higher number of stapler firings for rectal division can affect the leak rate in double stapling anastomosis. However, there are no data concerning compression anastomosis. We present our(More)
