To the best of our knowledge, there is no imaging method reported in literature which is capable of reaching to a diagnosis of vasculitis with very high sensitivity. AIM The aim of this study was to determine whether perfusion brain single photon emission computed(More)
A total of 52 consecutive, previously untreated patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) were scheduled to receive six cycles of a combination of etoposide (75 mg/m2 per day) and cisplatin (20 mg/m2 per day), each cycle given over 5 consecutive days. In all, 28 patients had extensive disease (ED) and 24, limited disease (LD). After three cycles of(More)
From February 1984 to February 1987, 29 patients with advanced, hormone-resistant prostatic carcinoma were treated with mitomycin-C at a dose of 20 mg/m2 every 6 weeks (15 mg/m2 in patients >75 years old and in those who had undergone previous radiotherapy). In the 27 evaluable patients, there were no complete remissions (CR), 2 partial remissions (PR), 14(More)
In this paper a DC power plant for base transceiver station power supply is investigated. The supply system employs clean alternative energy sources, namely photovoltaic (PV) modules, wind turbines, a fuel cell as backup generator and a storage battery bank. A detailed description is made and experimental data are shown of a prototype system where the PV(More)
