PURPOSE Interactions between the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib (Bay 43-9006) and the histone deacetylase inhibitor vorinostat were examined in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cells sensitive and resistant to imatinib mesylate. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN K562, LAMA 84, and primary CML patient-derived CD34(+) mononuclear cells were exposed to vorinostat(More)
Mast cell responses can be altered by cytokines, including those secreted by Th2 and regulatory T cells (Treg). Given the important role of mast cells in Th2-mediated inflammation and recent demonstrations of Treg-mast cell interactions, we examined the ability of IL-4 and TGF-beta1 to regulate mast cell homeostasis. Using in vitro and in vivo studies of(More)
It has been demonstrated that INS can be utilized to stimulate spiral ganglion cells in the cochlea. Although neural stimulation can be achieved without direct contact of the radiation source and the tissue, the presence of fluids or bone between the target structure and the radiation source may lead to absorption or scattering of the radiation, which may(More)
BACKGROUND While immune globulins for intravenous administration (IGIV) have an excellent record with respect to virus safety, concern regarding these preparations has been raised by reports of transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV) to patients treated with IGIV and the presence of genetic material for HCV in IGIV preparations. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with locally advanced prostate cancer (PCa) have worse outcomes after radical prostatectomy (RP) than patients with more favorable parameters. We conducted a phase II study of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with docetaxel before RP during 2000 to 2003 in patients with locally advanced disease. We report an updated long-term survival analysis(More)
Seminomas account for approximately 50% of all cases of testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is a highly curable disease that can be broadly classified as either seminomatous or nonseminomatous; the management and treatment of the 2 forms vary widely. Although surgery plays a large role in the management of nonseminoma, its role in the management of(More)
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery in urology is an ever progressing field, and boundaries are constantly broken with the aid of new technology. Advancements in instrumentation have given birth to the era of robotic laparoendoscopic single-site technique (R-LESS). R-LESS however, has not gained widespread acceptance due to technical hurdles such as(More)
