Polymorphisms in the excision repair cross-complimentary group 1 (ERCC1) gene have been involved in the prognosis of various cancers. In the present study, we evaluated the prognostic role of the two most common ERCC1 polymorphisms in patients with T4 breast cancer receiving platinum-based chemotherapy. A total of 47 patients with T4 breast cancer(More)
A self-instructional strategy using an audio-visual medium for learning the rehabilitation skill of a three-point crutch gait was developed and demonstrated to be effective with normal women of various activity levels naive to task demands. Briefly discussed are theoretical considerations based upon Fitt's three stages of acquiring a perceptual-motor skill(More)
