Desmoid tumors occur with high frequency in individuals with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). Because of this, individuals developing desmoid tumors may be referred for genetic risk assessment. Determining whether a person has a FAP-related desmoid tumor or a sporadic desmoid can be challenging. We sought to characterize the patients who were seen at(More)
Isospora geospizae n. sp. is described from the faeces of the small ground finch Geospiza fuliginosa and the medium ground finch Geospiza fortis from Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos archipelago. I. geospizae oocysts are spherical to subspherical, with a one-layered, smooth, colourless wall, 15.5×14.5 (13–17×12–17) μm with a large polar body and no(More)
In this work components of the next generation 0.10 /spl mu/m CMOS technology are presented. They form the core of a platform encompassing logic, non volatile memory, and analog blocks. High performance bulk devices use 18 /spl Aring/ gate oxide (24 /spl Aring/ inversion Tox) while low power devices use 25 /spl Aring/ gate oxide (31 /spl Aring/ inversion(More)
Models have been developed to predict the probability that a person carries a detectable germline mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Their relative performance in a clinical setting is unclear. To compare the performance characteristics of four BRCA1/BRCA2 gene mutation prediction models: LAMBDA, based on a checklist and scores developed from data on(More)
A number of models have been developed to predict the probability that a person carries a detectable germline mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Their relative performance in a clinical setting is variable. To compare the performance characteristics of a web-based BRCA1/BRCA2 gene mutation prediction model: the PENNII model ((More)
A sol-gel preparation of Ga-doped phosphate-based glass with potential application in antimicrobial devices has been developed. Samples of composition (CaO)0.30(Na2O)0.20-x(Ga2O3)x(P2O5)0.50 where x = 0 and 0.03 were prepared, and the structure and properties of the gallium-doped sample compared with those of the sample containing no gallium. Analysis of(More)
BACKGROUND In the CALGB (Alliance) 100104 study, lenalidomide versus placebo after autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) was investigated for patients with newly diagnosed myeloma. That study showed improved time to progression and overall survival and an increase in second primary malignancies for lenalidomide at a median follow-up of 34 months. Here(More)
