OBJECTIVE To examine whether the associations of physical performance with isometric hip and knee extensors strength and passive hip flexion and internal rotation range of motion (ROM) are nonlinear in community-dwelling adults with hip osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS Participants were 100 adults (mean age 62 years) with radiographically confirmed hip OA.(More)
DNA hypermethylation is reported as a frequent event and prognostic marker in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC). Methylation has been commonly assessed with non-quantitative methodologies, such as methylation-specific PCR (MSP). We investigated previously reported hypermethylated genes with quantitative methodology in oral tongue squamous cell(More)
The blinking patterns of 15 soft contact lens wearers were recorded with a concealed video camera. Each of 20 consecutive blinks were graded, during slow motion replay of the video, as either complete, incomplete, forced, or twitch. Ten of these subjects were instructed to perform blinking exercises for a period of 2 weeks and the remaining 5 subjects acted(More)
PURPOSE To review the response and outcomes of (177)Lu-DOTA-octreotate chemoradionuclide therapy (LuTate PRCRT) in patients with neuroendocrine tumour (NET) expressing high levels of somatostatin receptors with uncontrolled symptoms or disease progression. METHODS A total of 68 patients (39 men; 17 - 76 years of age) who had completed an induction course(More)
Data suggests that males experience less toxicity and poorer survival than females treated for Ewing’s sarcoma. We instituted an intra-patient dose escalation (DE) policy with Vincristine/Doxorubicin/Cyclophosphamide (VDC) alternating with Ifosfamide/Etoposide (IE) based on hematological nadirs and report its feasibility and safety. A retrospective review(More)
