Fourteen women with locally recurrent breast carcinoma on the chest wall following mastectomy were given 30 courses of photodynamic therapy (PDT). All patients had been heavily pretreated with conventional modes of therapy (radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, surgical resection). Twenty-two courses yielded a partial response; two courses(More)
Between 1980 and 1988, 122 women with operable invasive breast cancers underwent wide excision and axillary dissection without subsequent irradiation. During the follow-up period of 1 to 8 years (median, 4 years), recurrences were observed in 23 patients (19%), 22 occurring in the breast and one in the axilla. This is a significant rate of recurrence and(More)
PURPOSE Intravenous application of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) has been identified as a promising strategy for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. To generate a more applicable formulation, it was the aim of this study to develop a sustained buccal delivery system for this promising therapeutic peptide. METHODS 2-Iminothiolane(More)
A retrospective analysis of 52 patients with intraductal carcinoma or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and 30 patients with microinvasive DCIS was performed. All patients but one were treated by mastectomy. The average follow-up was 5 1/2 years. The clinical presentation of the patients having DCIS only included the presence of a mass in 33% (17/52), nipple(More)
In a closed pig breeding and finishing herd suffering from sarcoptic mange, two selected groups of pigs were filmed during a period of 10 days before and after treatment. The observation always commenced each hour and lasted for 15 min. Before treatment, observations was done round the clock, after treatment from 8:00 to 22:15. Before treatment the pens(More)
It was the aim of this study to develop an oral delivery system for the peptide drug antide. The stability of the therapeutic peptide towards gastrointestinal peptidases was evaluated. The therapeutic agent and the permeation mediator glutathione were embedded in the thiolated polymer chitosan-4-thio-butylamidine conjugate (chitosan-TBA conjugate) and(More)
We report the surgical pathology experience with large caliber stereotactic biopsies for non-palpable breast lesions in 217 patients. The aim is to compare the demographics to another somewhat similar center (#2), and to published results with the much smaller stereotactic needle biopsies, including our own historical controls. The large caliber tissue(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the interobserver variability between two observers from different echocardiographic laboratories. DESIGN Two observers reviewed video recordings blinded to the other's diagnosis. In part I (n = 88), they determined interobserver variability for spontaneous echo contrast, left atrial thrombi, and appendage thrombi. No diagnostic(More)
