AIMS To correlate histological features of ocular adnexal lymphoma using the revised European American lymphoma classification (REAL), with stage of disease at presentation, treatment modalities, and patient outcome. MALT lymphoma defines an extranodal marginal zone B cell lymphoma as outlined in the REAL classification. Comparison groups of patients(More)
A fed state in vitro methodology capable of use in commercial testing laboratories has been developed for measuring the human ingestion bioaccessibility of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in soil (Fed ORganic Estimation human Simulation Test- FOREhST). The protocol for measuring PAHs in the simulated gastro-intestinal fluids used methanolic KOH(More)
OBJECTIVE Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) is increasingly used after cardiotomy in children when conventional medical treatment fails. Poor overall survival and long-term outcome have been reported. We report our experience of post-cardiotomy MCS using a conventional bypass circuit. METHODS Over a 4 year and 6 month period 10 patients, with a median(More)
INTRODUCTION The management of gastric lymphoma is controversial and a wide variety of unimodality or multimodality approaches have been used. The aim of this report is to highlight the variety of treatment regimens deployed, the outcomes achieved and to present a modern management approach for this enigmatic tumour. RESULTS 42 cases of primary gastric(More)
Coal tars have been identified as posing a threat to human health due to their toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic characteristics. Workers involved in former gasholders decommissioning are potentially exposed to relevant concentrations of volatile and semi-volatile hydrocarbons upon opening up derelict tanks and during tar excavation/removal. While(More)
2070 Background: Coramsine (C) is a 1:1 mixture of solasonine and solamargine, plant glycoalkaloids found in the species Solanum Linneanum, with single agent and synergistic combination in vitro and in vivo preclinical efficacy in various tumor models through interaction with rhamnose-containing cell membrane glycoproteins and subsequent internalization.
