Bei der Behandlung kindlicher Frakturen hat sich in den letzten Jahren zunehmend die sogenannte halbkonservative, minimalinvasive Therapie etabliert. Besonders mit der elastisch-stabilen Markraumschienung (Prevot-Nagelung) steht ein schonendes Verfahren zur Verfügung, das langwierige Ruhigstellungen überflüssig macht. Bei korrekter Indikation und Anwendung(More)
In sepsis, the reduced systemic vascular resistance (SVR) can lead to a compensatory increase in cardiac output (CO). This may mimic a normal cardiac function although there is already a sepsis-induced myocardial depression. On a cohort of patients with septic multi-organ dysfunction syndrome, we have recently developed a method to correlate the actual CO(More)
We report 4-year-old girl who was diagnosed with adrenocortical carcinoma when she was 2 years old. At the time of diagnosis there were no metastases, but 6 months later multiple liver metastases appeared. Following intensive chemotherapy the metastases resolved completely. Multifocal lesions were detected in the liver by US 16 months later. Their(More)
CD97EGF is a member of the EGF-TM7 family of class II seven-transmembrane (7TM), and its cellular ligand CD55 (also known as decay accelerating factor; DAF) protects host cells from complement attack. To determine whether the expression levels of these two molecules are correlated with the clinicopathological features of gastric carcinomas, a total of 35(More)
CD82 (KAI1) and CD63 (ME491) are highly glycosylated proteins which belong to the transmembrane 4 superfamily (TM4SF). CD82 has been implicated as a possible prostate cancer metastasis suppressor gene, whereas CD63 is involved in the progression of human melanoma cancer. Down-regulation of both CD82 and CD63 expression has been associated with the(More)
Retinoic acid (RA) acts as an anti-proliferative and redifferentiation agent in the therapy of thyroid carcinoma. Our previous studies demonstrated that pretreatment of follicular thyroid carcinoma cell lines FTC-133 and FTC-238 resulted in decreased in vitro proliferation rates and reduced tumor cell growth of xenotransplants. In addition to the previous(More)
AUF1/heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein D is an adenylate-uridylate-rich elements (AREs) -binding protein, which regulates the mRNA stability of many genes related to growth regulation, such as proto-oncogenes, growth factors, cytokines, and cell cycle-regulatory genes. Several studies demonstrated AUF1 involvement in the processes of apoptosis,(More)
Our previous studies demonstrated that retinoic acid (RA)-induced reduction of both, the key glycolytic enzyme ENO1 and proliferation-promoting c-Myc, resulted in decreased vitality and invasiveness of the follicular thyroid carcinoma cell lines FTC-133 and FTC-238. By employing two-dimensional electrophoresis and mass spectrometry, we identified proteins(More)
BACKGROUND Infiltration anesthesia of the skin is an analgesic procedure often practiced before minor surgical interventions or punctures. The addition of hyaluronidase is a possible option to improve the effectiveness of the local anesthetic with respect to expansion of effect. OBJECTIVE To validate the safety of intracutaneous application of(More)
