This report describes a set of scientific procedures used to assess the impact of foods and food ingredients on the expression of appetite (psychological and behavioural). An overarching priority has been to enable potential evaluators of health claims about foods to identify justified claims and to exclude claims that are not supported by scientific(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus, or GEJ, has a poor prognosis. Early lesions [i.e. high grade dysplasia (HGD) or T1-carcinoma] are potentially curable. Local endoscopic therapies are promising treatment options for superficial lesions; however, for deeper lesions, surgical resection is considered to be the treatment of choice. To contribute to therapeutic(More)
Standardised uptake values (SUVs) depend on acquisition, reconstruction and region of interest (ROI) parameters. SUV quantification in multi-centre trials therefore requires standardisation of acquisition and analysis protocols. However, standardisation is difficult owing to the use of different scanners, image reconstruction and data analysis software. In(More)
PURPOSE To compare diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography (CT), endoscopic ultrasonography (US), and fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for assessment of response to neoadjuvant therapy in patients with esophageal cancer by using a systematic review of the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS MEDLINE and EMBASE(More)
BACKGROUND The detection of distant metastases in patients with oesophageal cancer may be improved with [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), preventing unnecessary surgical explorations. The aim of this study was to assess the additional value of FDG-PET after a state-of-the-art preoperative staging protocol. METHODS All(More)
To get insight in the endocrine and metabolic responses in children with meningococcal sepsis 26 children were studied the first 48 h after admission. On admission there was a significant difference in cortisol/ACTH levels between nonsurvivors (n = 8) and survivors (n = 18). Nonsurvivors showed an inadequate cortisol stress response in combination to very(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic techniques are being developed for the local treatment of early stage esophageal cancer. However, such therapy is not appropriate for patients with lymph node metastasis. The aim of this study was to analyze the histopathologic features of high-grade dysplasia and early stage adenocarcinoma and to relate these to lymph node(More)
One of the most important ways to reduce biliary duct injury in laparoscopic cholecystectomy is to achieve the critical view of safety (CVS) before transection of the cystic artery and duct. Documenting CVS is possible with photo prints, video imaging, or both. These documentations can be used as a proof of the right procedure in case of biliary duct(More)
UNLABELLED Because of improvements in diagnostic technology, the incidental detection of synchronous primary tumors during the preoperative work-up of patients with esophageal cancer has increased. The aim of this study was to determine the rate and clinical relevance of synchronous neoplasms seen on (18)F-FDG PET in staging of esophageal cancer. METHODS(More)
