The purpose of this study was to examine the effect on survival of delaying the start of adjuvant chemotherapy for early breast cancer for up to 3 months after surgery. In the nation-wide clinical trials of the Danish Breast Cancer Cooperative Group, 7501 breast cancer patients received chemotherapy within 3 months of surgery between 1977 and 1999: 352 with(More)
In CADASIL (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leucoencephalopathy), a genetic model of subcortical ischemic vascular dementia (SIVD), clinical status was previously found related to cortex morphology. In the present report, alterations of cortex morphology and their links to clinical worsening were investigated in 190(More)
The taste buds from fungiform papillae and the hard palate of frogs were investigated with the scanning and transmission electron microscopes. An immature pre-taste cell and a mature taste cell can be differentiated. Only the mature taste cell exhibits synaptic contact with the afferent taste fibre. Glandular and satellite supporting cells envelop the thin(More)
In the elderly, the high prevalence of Alzheimer's disease neuropathology presents a major challenge to the investigation of memory decline in common diseases such as small vessel disease. CADASIL represents a unique clinical model to determine the spectrum of memory impairment in subcortical ischemic vascular dementia (SIVD). One hundred and forty CADASIL(More)
Cortical ischemic stroke affecting the precentral "hand knob" area is a rare but well known stroke entity. To date, little is known about the underlying stroke mechanisms and the prognosis. Twenty-nine patients admitted to our service between 2003 and 2007 were included in the study on the basis of an acute ischemic infarct of the cortical "hand knob" area(More)
INTRODUCTION The percentage of aneurysms treated surgically has steadily decreased since the results of the ISAT study were published in 2002. The aim of this study was to develop different reliable and reproducible aneurysm models for microsurgical training and further research to guarantee effective instruction in microsurgery for young neurosurgeons with(More)
OBJECTIVE Migraine with aura is a hallmark of cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL). In contrast with the majority of CADASIL patients, some affected subjects never experience visual symptoms during their attacks of migraine with aura. The aim of this study was to determine whether specific(More)
The authors report a 44-year-old man with rippling muscle disease (RMD) who does not have a mutation in the caveolin-3 gene. Immunohistochemistry of the muscle biopsy revealed a marked reduction of caveolin-3 and a mosaic pattern of dysferlin immunostaining. Ultrastructural studies showed a loss of caveolae and alterations of the triad. Autoantibodies were(More)
