BACKGROUND A breast cancer screening programme (BCSP) was started in 21 districts in the Khanty-Mansiysky Autonomous Okrug-Ugra region from 7 February 2007. METHODS From the data on the numbers of subjects screened and the resulting diagnoses we calculated screening coverage rates and cancer detection rates and estimated the sensitivity of the screening(More)
Combined clinical, psychologic and neurophysiological investigation was conducted in children with slow-progredient schizophrenia: with dominant affective disorders and hypomaniac states (Group I, 14 patients), and with predominant neurosis-like and psychopathy-like pathology (Group II, 12 patients). The patients distinctly differed in not only the clinical(More)
INTRODUCTION We report the SVR12 final analysis of a phase 3 study of telaprevir in combination with peginterferon (P)/ribavirin (R) in HCV-genotype 1, treatment-naïve and -experienced patients with HCV/HIV co-infection (INSIGHT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients receiving stable, suppressive HIV antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, containing(More)
This review is written due to an increased interest in the production of energy carriers and basic substrates of the chemical industry from renewable natural resources. In this review, the microbiological aspects of biobutanol production are reflected and the microbial producers of butanol (both natural, i.e., members of the Clostridium genus, and(More)
Background.  Although human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive persons on antiretroviral therapy (ART) frequently have chronic liver enzyme elevation (cLEE), the underlying cause is often unclear.

Coagulation factor XII (fXII) is important for arterial thrombosis, but its physiological activation mechanisms are unclear. In this study, we elucidated the role of platelets and platelet-derived material in fXII activation. FXII activation was only observed upon potent platelet stimulation (with thrombin, collagen-related peptide, or calcium ionophore,(More)
In addition to efforts aimed at reducing anthropogenic production of greenhouse gases, geological storage of CO2 is being explored as a strategy to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas emission and mitigate climate change. Previous studies of the deep subsurface in North America have not fully considered the potential negative effects of CO2 leakage into(More)
Preface This guide is based on the Columbia University graduate student field trip to Wyoming in summer 2011, made possible by the Stroke Memorial Fund at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. In nine days, the group visited four states and covered well over 1000 miles of Rocky Mountain geology. The group started in Denver, Colorado and traversed parts of(More)
