PURPOSE The primary purpose of this study was to measure the impact of the 21-gene Recurrence Score® result on systemic treatment recommendations and to perform a prospective health economic analysis in stage I-II, node-negative, oestrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer. METHODS Consenting patients with ER+ node negative invasive breast cancer and(More)
Microfiltration and ultrafiltration were used to manufacture skim milks with an increased or reduced concentration of whey proteins, while keeping the casein and milk salts concentrations constant. The skim milks were heated on a pilot-scale UHT plant at 80, 90 and 120 degrees C. The heat-induced denaturation and aggregation of beta-lactoglobulin (beta-lg),(More)
Taylor, M. W. (Stanford University, Stanford, Calif.), and C. Yanofsky. Chromosomal relocation of prophage-associated bacterial genes. J. Bacteriol. 91:1469-1476. 1966.-Two distinguishable colony types, rough-edged and smooth-edged, were observed when tryptophan auxotrophs of Escherichia coli were transformed to tryptophan independence with DNA from the(More)
Bacterial DNA and its synthetic immunostimulatory oligodeoxynucleotide analogs (ISS-ODN) activate innate immunity and promote Th1 and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte immune responses. Based on these activities, we investigated whether ISS-ODN could modify the course of Mycobacterium avium infection. M. avium growth in vitro was significantly inhibited by ISS-ODN(More)
Earthworms (Lumbricus terrestris) were extracted with chloroform-methanol (2∶1) and examined primarily for neutral lipids and fatty acids. TLC showed spots for sterols, hydrocarbons, free fatty acids, phospholipids and pigments but none for glycerides (tri-, di- or mono). Saponification of the crude lipid extract yielded 32% fatty acids, 25% unsaponifiables(More)
Mengovirus infection of a restrictive cell line, Maden's bovine kidney (MDBK), results in a virus yield 1,000-fold less than that obtained from productively infected cell lines such as L cells or Ehrlich ascites tumor cells (EAT). Cells of both types of host systems are infected with comparable efficiencies and are completely killed as a consequence of(More)
598 Background: Anthracyclines and taxanes are now standard of care for LABC. Phase III trials have demonstrated pathological complete responses of the breast (pCR) of 20-34% in studies of primary operable and LABC. Recent trials in the HER-2 negative population reported pCR rates of 20-29%.We have completed a multi-centre phase II trial of a neoadjuvant(More)
