Screening for cervical carcinoma by cervicovaginal cytology has led to a marked reduction in the incidence of and mortality from this tumor over the last 50 years in essentially all countries with a functioning screening program. It is the most successful cancer prevention program of all times. Consequently, approximately 80% of the current incidence of and(More)
One of the major factors limiting the staging accuracy of conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for prostatic carcinoma, is the similarity in signal intensity between tumor and coexisting benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). As neovascularity is an independent indicator of pathological state, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI may yield additional(More)
The BSCC terminology was originally published in 1986 and although highly successful, requires revision. Through a process of professional consensus and literature review this has been undertaken by the BSCC. The revision takes account of recent developments and improvements in understanding of morphology and disease process and is compatible with other(More)
The management of breast disease has been influenced by breast imaging and fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) for preoperative diagnosis. To investigate the impact of introducing an in-clinic FNAC service on patient management, the pathology records of patients presenting before and after introduction of the service were studied. Four management changes(More)
We have previously reported a striking correlation between water T2 relaxation time and citrate concentration in the normal prostate (Liney G.P.; Lowry M.; Turnbull L.W.; Manton D.J.; Knowles A.J.; Blackband S.J.; Horsman A. Proton MR T2 maps correlate with the citrate concentration in the prostate. NMR Biomed. 9:59-64; 1996). In this study we present data(More)
UNLABELLED The goal of this study was to determine if an ischemic preconditioning (IPC) protocol improved post-ischemic functional recovery of female mouse hearts. A previous study found that IPC did not occur in hearts from 10-week-old females. We studied Langendorff-perfused hearts from both 10- and 18-week-old mice (males and females). Hearts were(More)
Mediators of immediate-type hypersensitivity were studied in the sputum of patients with chronic bronchitis. The same mediators were also measured in early-onset, skin-test-positive asthmatics, in late-onset, skin-test-negative asthmatics, and in patients with bronchial carcinoma, bronchiectasis, and pneumonia. Sputum eosinophilia was a feature of(More)
Dalcetrapib targets cholesteryl ester transfer protein and increases high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. It is in clinical development for the prevention of cardiovascular events and will likely be used in combination with standard of care, including statins. Three crossover studies in healthy males investigated the pharmacokinetic(More)
This paper describes the application of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) performed on 92 patients with salivary gland lesions in a Head and Neck Surgery Clinic. The aspirates were immediately reported by a cytopathologist and the reports conveyed to the surgeon during the same clinic visit. FNAC results were then compared with histology in those(More)
