OBJECTIVE To assess preference, satisfaction and critical errors with a novel, breath-actuated, multi-dose dry powder inhaler (DPI; Genuair®/Pressair™), versus a widely used, single-dose DPI (HandiHaler®) in patients with moderate-to-severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. METHODS In this randomised, open-label, multicentre, cross-over study,(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this randomised, cross-over study was to compare a new single-dose dry powder inhaler (Elpenhaler (EH)), with a widely used, multi-dose dry powder inhaler (Diskus (DK)) on critical errors, patient preference, and satisfaction with the inhalers. METHODS First, patients read the instructions of one device, followed by a first(More)
OBJECTIVES As suggested by in-vitro data, we hypothesize that subtypes of KRAS mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) respond differently to chemotherapy regimens. METHODS Patients with advanced NSCLC and known KRAS mutation, treated with first-line platinum-based chemotherapy, were retrieved from hospital databases. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE to investigate(More)
PURPOSE In this study, we investigated the impact of implementation of [(18)F] fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in daily practice on adherence to mediastinal staging protocols and performance of mediastinoscopy in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who are possible candidates for surgical resection.

Errors in the use of different inhalers were investigated in patients naive to the devices under investigation in a multicentre, single-visit, randomised, open-label, cross-over study. Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma were assigned to ELLIPTA vs DISKUS (Accuhaler), metered-dose inhaler (MDI) or Turbuhaler. Patients with(More)
A sex chromosome deletion was identified in the course of prenatal diagnosis for maternal age. Ultrasound pictures revealed male fetal sex and a comparison with the father's Y chromosome suggested that the altered chromosome might be a de novo deletion of the Y chromosome. DNA hybridization with five human Y-specific probes shows that, among the Y-specific(More)
