The purpose of this study was to assess reliability of both indoor and outdoor 40 km time-trial cycling performance. Eight trained cyclists completed three indoor 40 km time-trials on an air-braked ergometer (Kingcycle) and three outdoor 40 km time-trials on a local course. Power output was measured for all trials using the SRM powermeter. Mean performance(More)
Immunohistological staining of primary colorectal carcinomas with antibodies specific to p53 demonstrated gross overexpression of the protein in approximately 50% of the malignant tumors examined. Benign adenomas were all negative for p53 overexpression. To determine the molecular basis for this overexpression we examined p53 protein expression in 10(More)
Fourteen examples of an unusual mesenchymal tumor characterized by sheets and fascicles of mitotically inactive, hemosiderin-stippled, spindled, and pleomorphic cells, situated around an angiectatic vasculature, are described. The 14 tumours developed in eight women and six men (aged 32-83 years) and ranged in size from 2.3 to 8 cm. Eleven cases presented(More)
The expression of HLA-A,B,C antigens and lymphocyte function-associated antigen 3 in human colorectal adenomas and adenocarcinomas was studied by immunohistochemistry. None of 10 adenomas and only 1 of 30 carcinomas had lost expression of all HLA-A,B,C molecules. On the other hand, focal loss of an HLA-B product was seen in 2 of the adenomas, and complete(More)
An immunocytochemical study has been undertaken of cadherin expression in 11 benign melanocytic naevi and 14 malignant melanomas. Anti-pan-cadherin rabbit antibodies, which recognize multiple cadherin subtypes, demonstrated cadherin expression of moderate or strong intensity in 8 of 11 naevi. Expression was restricted to the more superficial melanocytes(More)
Multi-modality imaging is rapidly becoming a valuable tool in the diagnosis of disease and in the development of new drugs. Functional images produced with PET fused with anatomical structure images created by MRI will allow the correlation of form with function. Our group is developing a system to acquire MRI and PET images contemporaneously. The prototype(More)
NSCLC exhibits considerable heterogeneity in its sensitivity to chemotherapy and similar heterogeneity is noted in vitro in a variety of model systems. This study has tested the hypothesis that the molecular basis of the observed in vitro chemosensitivity of NSCLC lies within the known resistance mechanisms inherent to these patients' tumors. The(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to examine the effects of different lactate elevation protocols on the determination of the lactate minimum (Lac(min)) point. METHODS Eight highly trained racing cyclists each completed four continuous ramp lactate minimum tests using the following blood lactate elevation protocols: 1) continuous ramp maximal aerobic power(More)
BACKGROUND Innervation is a critical component of arrhythmogenesis and may present an important trigger/substrate modifier not used in current ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation strategies. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifteen patients referred for ischemic VT ablation underwent preprocedural cardiac (123)I- meta-iodobenzylguanidine ((123)I-mIBG) imaging, which(More)
Pinhole collimators are widely used to image small organs and animals. The sensitivity of knife-edge pinhole collimators has been previously estimated using an "effective diameter" formulation and experimentally described using a sin(x) theta fit, where theta is the angle between the line segment from the center of the aperture to the photon source and its(More)
