The principal RNA species isolated from labeled preparations of the arenavirus Pichinde usually include a large viral RNA species L (apparent molecular weight = 3.2 X 10(6)), and a smaller viral RNA species S (apparent molecular weight = 1.6 X 10(6)). In addition, either little or considerable quantities of 28S rRNA as well as 18S rRNA can also be obtained(More)
PURPOSE Stage IA (T1N0M0) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) includes all lesions up to 3 cm in diameter. With the use of advanced imaging techniques, smaller pulmonary lesions can be identified. A greater proportion of patients with NSCLC will likely have smaller tumors at presentation in the future. The purpose of this study was to determine the(More)
We report a case involving a 45-year-old man with a 12-year history of Wegener granulomatosis, who developed a carcinosarcoma of the urinary bladder after long-term cyclophosphamide therapy. Cyclophosphamide is well recognized as an etiologic agent for urothelial carcinoma of the urinary bladder. However, only 5 cases of carcinosarcoma of the urinary(More)
Monocytoid B-cell lymphoma (MBCL) is a low-grade neoplasm considered to be the neoplastic counterpart to monocytoid B-lymphocytes, derived from marginal zone lymphocytes. Recently, a 72-yr-old woman presented with urinary symptoms of burning, urgency, and hematuria. Examination of the urinary bladder revealed the presence of an exophytic mass at the bladder(More)
PURPOSE Outcomes after resection of stage I non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are variable, potentially due to undetected occult micrometastases (OM). Cancer and Leukemia Group B 9761 was a prospectively designed study aimed at determining the prognostic significance of OM. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1997 and 2002, 502 patients with suspected clinical(More)
PURPOSE Our purpose was to study the detection of occult metastases (OM) in regional lymph nodes using immunohistochemical stain for cytokeratin, and for this study we targeted clinical stage I patients with non-small cell lung cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The study comprised the first 193 patients entered onto Cancer and Leukemia Group B protocol 9761.(More)
Granulomas in the bone marrow are usually caused by infectious or hematological diseases, and drugs are only rarely implicated as causative agents. Recent reports have drawn attention to the role of amiodarone in the etiology of bone marrow granulomas. We report two cases of amiodarone-induced bone marrow granulomas in patients being investigated for(More)
7030 Background: CALGB 9761 was a prospective trial of tumor and lymph node collection during planned surgical resection in patients with clinical stage I NSCLC. The primary objective was to determine if occult micrometastases (OM) detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) or real time PCR of CEA in histologically negative lymph nodes is associated with poorer(More)
