Methacarn and RCL2, a new noncrosslinking fixative, were compared to formalin-fixed or frozen tissue samples of the same invasive breast carcinoma and were evaluated for their effects on tissue morphology and immunohistochemistry as well as DNA and RNA integrity. The histomorphology of methacarn- or RCL2-fixed paraffin-embedded tumors was similar to that(More)
Cancer-testis (CT) Ags are expressed in testis and malignant tumors but rarely in nongametogenic tissues. Due to this pattern, they represent attractive targets for cancer vaccination approaches. The aims of the present study are: 1) to assess the expression of CT genes on a pangenomic base in multiple myeloma (MM); 2) to assess the prognosis value of CT(More)
BACKGROUND The value of thrombolytic therapy in unstable angina is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS To study this problem, 159 patients were studied in a double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter trial. Patients without a previous myocardial infarction, with a typical history of unstable angina, and ECG abnormalities indicative of ischemia were included.(More)
Dislocation of the flexor hallucis longus tendon is an exceptional occurrence. To our knowledge, this is the first case ever reported of an intermittent dislocation in a 17-year-old woman; she was a synchronised swimmer. She consulted for a right internal retro-malleolar syndrome. Voluntary "snap" was triggered by a mechanism which combined maximal ankle(More)
From the first of June 90 to the thirty first of January 94, transesophageal echocardiography was performed in 235 consecutive patients (mean age 56+/-16 years), presenting either with cerebral ischemic event (n = 202) or a peripheral arterial embolism (n = 33). All patients had normal echocardiographic and Doppler examinations of the carotid arteries, and(More)
