We report that herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection leads to the recruitment of protein kinase C (PKC) to the nuclear rim. In HEp-2 cells, PKC recruitment to the nuclear rim was initiated between 8 h and 12 h postinfection. PKCdelta, a proapoptotic kinase, was completely recruited to the nuclear rim upon infection with HSV-1. PKCalpha was less(More)
Cells infected with wild-type herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) show disruption of the organization of the nuclear lamina that underlies the nuclear envelope. This disruption is reflected in changes in the localization and phosphorylation of lamin proteins. Here, we show that HSV-1 infection causes relocalization of the LEM domain protein emerin. In cells(More)
About a third of patients with ovarian cancer present with localized disease; despite surgical resection, up to half the tumors recur. Since it has not been established whether adjuvant treatment can benefit such patients, we conducted two prospective, randomized national cooperative trials of adjuvant therapy in patients with localized ovarian carcinoma(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of primary reconstruction of postablative defects following transoral robotic surgery on function and the risk of orocutaneous fistula. DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized clinical trial. SETTING Tertiary academic medical center. PATIENTS Thirty-one patients treated with transoral robotic pharyngectomy for malignant(More)
After hysterectomy, 156 evaluable patients with stage I (limited to the corpus) or stage II (limited to the corpus and cervix) uterine sarcomas were randomly assigned to adjuvant chemotherapy with Adriamycin (Adria Laboratories, Columbus, Ohio) for six months or to no further treatment. Pelvic irradiation (external or intracavitary) was optional before(More)
Long-term follow-up was obtained on 726 women with advanced ovarian carcinoma (suboptimal stage III and stage IV) who had received primary chemotherapy on two Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) protocols between 1976 and 1982. The first study compared melphalan alone versus melphalan plus hexamethylmelamine versus cyclophosphamide plus doxorubicin (CA). The(More)
Uterine sarcomas are unusual neoplasms of the female genital tract whose molecular etiology is largely unknown. We examined 20 leiomyomas as well as 23 uterine leiomyosarcomas for the presence of mutations in the Ki-ras and p53 genes, and overexpression of the MDM2 gene. Codons 12, 13, and 61 from the Ki-ras gene were characterized for the presence of(More)
Previous results indicated that the U(L)34 protein (pU(L)34) of herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) is targeted to the nuclear membrane and is essential for nuclear egress of nucleocapsids. The normal localization of pU(L)34 and virions requires the U(S)3-encoded kinase that phosphorylates U(L)34 and lamin A/C. Moreover, pU(L)34 was shown to interact with lamin(More)
BACKGROUND Transoral techniques for oropharyngeal tumors, such as transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and transoral laser microsurgery, require new reconstructive considerations. METHODS Defects from 92 patients undergoing TORS were classified into 4 classes. A reconstruction algorithm was followed. Perioperative outcomes and complications were assessed.(More)
From September 1971 through December 1982, 153 patients with Stage IB carcinoma of the cervix underwent radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy at two of the teaching hospitals of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Records were retrospectively analyzed and independent pathologic review was performed. All surgical procedures(More)
