Clinical breast examination (CBE) seeks to detect breast abnormalities or evaluate patient reports of symptoms to find palpable breast cancers at an earlier stage of progression. Treatment options for earlier-stage cancers are generally more numerous, include less toxic alternatives, and are usually more effective than treatments for later-stage cancers.(More)
The knowledge and attitudes toward cancer pain management of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists in the state of New Hampshire were examined through the use of a statewide survey. Many of the providers who completed the survey, and thus indicated that they treated patients with cancer pain on a regular basis, were not pain or oncology specialists. Most of(More)
Serum proteins from hepatectomized or control rats were separated by gel permeation chromatography and assayed for stimulation of hepatocyte proliferation in primary cultures of hepatocytes. Two peaks of activity were seen in the areas of large (greater than 120,000) and small (less than 3,000) molecular weight. These activities are different from insulin,(More)
BACKGROUND The affordability of prescription medications continues to be a major public health issue in the United States. Estimates of cost-related medication underuse come largely from surveys of ambulatory patients. Hospitalized patients may be vulnerable to cost-related underuse and its consequences, but have been subject to little investigation. (More)
The synthesis and disappearance of a serum factor from the circulating blood of rats bearing Morris hepatomas 7777 or 7800 were described. We provided evidence that the factor was synthesized by the livers of normal rats and continued to be synthesized in tumor-bearing animals. Despite very low levels in the sera of tumor-bearing animals, the factor was(More)
The increase of a serum protein in the circulation of rats during pregnancy has been described. The protein is different from the human pregnancy zone protein previously described. This new serum protein factor is present in normal rat serum and accounts for approximately 1% of the total serum protein. The protein factor disappears from the serum of animals(More)
The effect of a serum factor purified from normal rat serum on growth and incorporation of 3-H-thymidine and 3-H-leucine was investigated with the use of 3T3 and L cells. The factor was not present in serum of hepatoma-bearing animals at a time when the weight of the hepatomas was equal to or greater than liver weight. The factor disappeared gradually from(More)

In just half a century since the human diploid chromosome number was correctly identified as 46, there has been a rapid expansion in our understanding of both the genetic foundation of normal human development and the development of various constitutional and acquired abnormalities. The ability to detect numerical and structural chromosomal abnormalities(More)
