PURPOSE There are no robust data on prognostic factors for overall survival (OS) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) treated with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) -targeted therapy. METHODS Baseline characteristics and outcomes on 645 patients with anti-VEGF therapy-naïve metastatic RCC were collected from three US and four(More)
BACKGROUND: We performed a retrospective population-based study to assess the impact of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) on overall survival (OS) in patients treated for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) in Alberta, Canada and to assess the impact of nephrectomy on OS in patients treated with TKIs. METHODS: We identified 134 patients who began taking(More)
Leiomyosarcoma is a rare Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-related complication of solid-organ transplantation. We report the case of a 19-year-old woman with cystic fibrosis who presented with protracted headaches 15 months after an EBV-mismatched bilateral sequential lung transplant. A parasagittal lesion was found on cranial magnetic resonance imaging; surgical(More)
Remote sensing airborne hyperspectral data are routinely used for applications including algorithm development for satellite sensors, environmental monitoring and atmospheric studies. Single flight lines of airborne hyperspectral data are often in the region of tens of gigabytes in size. This means that a single aircraft can collect terabytes of remotely(More)
RESUME The 1992 Landers earthquake is perhaps the most famous earthquake for InSAR, having been the subject of many different scientific journal, magazine and newspaper articles. This plethora of papers means that the site is very well known and any attempt to process the data should be able to confidently predict the results. The ambiguity search method,(More)
The overarching aim of this paper is to enhance the visualisations and classifications of airborne remote sensing data for remote forest surveys. A new open source tool is presented for aligning hyperspectral and full-waveform LiDAR data. The tool produces coloured polygon representations of the scanned areas and aligned metrics from both datasets. Using(More)
In this paper we present the results of extensive molecular dynamics simulations of a model of liquid crystals, in which a twist is imposed on the direction of preferred orientation. On quenching the system from a twisted nematic phase to a state point within the Smectic-A phase, we observe a structure which corresponds closely to that of the smectic-A∗(More)
