The time-dependent CP asymmetry in B(s)(0)→J/ψK+K- decays is measured using pp collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb-1, collected with the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. In a sample of 96,000 B(s)(0)→J/ψK+K- decays, the CP-violating phase ϕs is measured, as well as the decay widths ΓL and ΓH of the(More)
Objective: To evaluate treatment with noninvasive ventilation (NIV) by nasal mask as an alternative to endotracheal intubation and conventional mechanical ventilation in patients with hematologic malignancies complicated by acute respiratory failure to decrease the risk of hemorrhagic complications and increase clinical tolerance. Design: Prospective(More)
A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B(+) → K(+)μ(+)μ(-) and B(+) → K(+)e(+)e(-) decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1), recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to describe a series of patients with breast cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and to determine the usual sequence of the diagnoses. Therapy for both neoplasms and its relationship to the development of the second neoplasm were also evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients were identified primarily from cancer(More)
Familial myeloma was described as early as 1925; however, the causative factors are unknown. Studies of families with other familial haematological malignancies demonstrate anticipation. Five new families are described in which plasma cell dyscrasias occurred in parent and child generations (six such pairs), and data were pooled with those of 16 other(More)
A broad peaking structure is observed in the dimuon spectrum of B+ → K+ μ+ μ- decays in the kinematic region where the kaon has a low recoil against the dimuon system. The structure is consistent with interference between the B+ → K+ μ+ μ- decay and a resonance and has a statistical significance exceeding six standard deviations. The mean and width of the(More)
We present a measurement of the ratio of the top-quark branching fractions R=B(t→Wb)/B(t→Wq), where q represents any quark flavor, in events with two charged leptons, imbalance in total transverse energy, and at least two jets. The measurement uses proton-antiproton collision data at center-of-mass energy 1.96 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity(More)
Anticipation, a phenomenon in which an inherited disease is diagnosed at an earlier age in each successive generation of a family, has been demonstrated in certain neurological and haematological disorders. This study was conducted to determine whether anticipation occurs in familial non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Eleven published reports of(More)
A family with erythroleukemia is presented, in which father and son were diagnosed at the same age, but 20 years apart, with almost identical clinical and morphological features of the disease. No environmental factors were identified. The karyotypic abnormalities of the bone marrow blasts in the son demonstrated 2 major clones, involving chromosomes 5 and(More)
We present a measurement of form-factor-independent angular observables in the decay B(0)→K*(892)(0)μ(+)μ(-). The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb(-1), collected by the LHCb experiment in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. Four observables are measured in six bins of the dimuon invariant(More)
