BACKGROUND Numerous studies have reported an increased prevalence of renal cell carcinoma in association with acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD). In 1995, the clinical practice guidelines of the American Society of Transplant Physicians for evaluation of renal transplant candidates recommend not screening for ACKD and renal cell carcinoma, on the basis(More)
PURPOSE The ratio of free-to-total prostate specific antigen (PSA), or percent free PSA, is a useful adjunct to total PSA for estimating the risk of prostate cancer when total PSA is 2.5 to 9.9 ng./ml. Relationships between cancer detection and total PSA are influenced by race but to our knowledge relationships between cancer detection and percent free PSA(More)
Epigenetic modifications represent a promising new approach to modulate cell functions as observed in autoimmune diseases. Emerging evidence suggests the utility of HDAC inhibitors in the treatment of chronic immune and inflammatory disorders. However, class and isoform selective inhibition of HDAC is currently favored as it limits the toxicity that has(More)
PURPOSE We assess the influence of race on stage stratified cause specific survival of men with prostate cancer, and Gleason score, age at diagnosis and treatment on potential racial differences in survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 524 black and 396 white men were diagnosed with prostate cancer at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center between January(More)
Management of intraperitoneal, nonurethral bladder injuries by urinary diversion using suprapubic (SP) catheters versus transurethral (TU) Foley catheters was examined retrospectively in a attempt to determine which were most effective. A total of 8500 trauma admissions (6/89-1/96) were screened for bladder injuries. Mechanism, degree, treatment, and(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the higher age-adjusted serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in black compared with white men with no clinical evidence of prostate cancer reflect racial differences in relationships between PSA and prostate volume. METHODS The age, PSA, findings on digital rectal examination (DRE), prostate volume, and PSA density(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether biopsy-detectable transition zone tumors are more common in black than in white men with suspected Stage T1c and T2 prostate cancer. METHODS We performed a prospective study of transition zone prostate biopsy (TZ biopsy) in 1 78 black and 261 white men who had not undergone previous prostate biopsy and in 61 black and 65(More)
HDAC inhibitors emerged as promising drug candidates in combating wide variety of cancers. At present, two of the compounds SAHA and Romidepsin were approved by FDA for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and many are in various clinical phases. A new quinolone cap structure was explored with hydroxamic acid as zinc-binding group (ZBG). The pan HDAC inhibitory and(More)
Herein we report the synthesis, PDE-4B and TNF-α inhibitory activities of a few dibenzo[b,d]furan-1-yl-thiazole derivatives. The hydroxycyclohexanol amide derivatives 14, 18, 24, 29, 31 and 33 exhibited promising in vitro PDE-4B and TNF-α inhibitory activities. Compound 24 showed good systemic availability in preclinical animal models and was also found to(More)
