OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Huntington's disease (HD) produces debilitating motor abnormalities that are poorly responsive to medical therapy. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) may offer a treatment option for afflicted patients, but its role in the management of HD remains unclear. In the present case, DBS leads were implanted bilaterally into the posteroventral… (More)
O ccipital neuralgia (ON) is defined as a paroxysmal jabbing pain in the cutaneous distribution of the greater or lesser occipital or third occipital nerve. 10 The pain is frequently described as sharp, shooting, stabbing or electrical, preferentially unilateral and remitting, radiating to the occipital and frontal areas, with associated symptoms suggesting… (More)
Most of the existing encryption schemes used for practical applications rely on un-proven assumptions. The limited access model proposed by Michael Rabin, describes a crypto-system which is provably unbreakable without any assumption on the computational power of an adversary. But this model makes assumption on the inaccessibility of a distributed source of… (More)

The efficacy of currently available treatments for Hodgkin's disease (HD) has led to a substantial modification in the prognosis of this disease; nevertheless there is still a group of patients that cannot be cured with conventional treatments and who will be candidates for alternative therapy. In the present work we analysed the prognostic influence of the… (More)
OBJECTIVE The goal was to evaluate, at 1 year, 75 Long-Evans rats for survival rates and toxicity associated with the sequencing of cranial irradiation and enhanced chemotherapy delivery. METHODS Seventy-five Long-Evans rats were randomized into four groups and evaluated at 1 year for survival rates and toxicity associated with the sequencing of cranial… (More)
The sequence of chemotherapy administered prior to cranial irradiation rather than the more traditional order of radiation followed by chemotherapy is currently being evaluated. This rodent study was designed to assess the sequencing of radiation therapy and chemotherapy administered with osmotic blood-brain barrier disruption (BBBD). Drug delivery and… (More)
