BACKGROUND Infection with Helicobacter pylori has been linked with chronic atrophic gastritis, an inflammatory precursor of gastric adenocarcinoma. In a nested case-control study, we explored whether H. pylori infection increases the risk of gastric carcinoma. METHODS From a cohort of 128,992 persons followed since the mid-1960s at a health maintenance(More)
UNLABELLED Prednisone-resistant nephrotic syndrome (NS) due to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), the most common acquired disease requiring chronic dialysis and transplantation in children, has a low likelihood of response to alkylating agent therapy. This report summarizes the results of a 0.75-12.5 (average 6.33) year follow-up of 32 pediatric(More)
We evaluated a chronic renal injury in 37 cardiac transplant recipients treated for 12 to 24 months with cyclosporine (CsA). Twenty-four cardiac transplant recipients treated with azathioprine for more than 24 months served as controls. Despite equivalent cardiac performance, GFR in those treated with CsA was depressed, 47 +/- 3 versus 94 +/- 4 ml/min/1.73(More)
The tissues surrounding 65 cemented and 36 cementless total joint replacements undergoing revision were characterised for cell types by immunohistochemistry and for cytokine expression by in situ hybridisation. We identified three distinct groups of revised implants: loose implants with ballooning radiological osteolysis, loose implants without osteolysis,(More)
We analyzed the clinical course, pathologic findings, and results of aggressive medical management and renal transplantation in 41 infants with onset of nephrotic syndrome in the first 3 months of life. All but one infant with congenital onset failed to thrive and had progressive renal insufficiency; 17 were given steroids or cytotoxic drugs or both,(More)
The melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is an uncommon neoplasm typically of early childhood which has a predilection for the head and neck region, particularly the maxilla. Except for one previous example in the literature, this tumor has consistently behaved in a benign fashion. This study documents the clinical course and pathologic findings of a(More)
Keratin 8 and 18 (K8K18) mutations are found in patients with cryptogenic cirrhosis, but the role of keratin mutations in noncryptogenic cirrhosis and the incidence of keratin mutations in the general population are not known. We screened for K8K18 mutations in genomic DNA isolated from 314 liver explants of patients who primarily had noncryptogenic(More)
This report describes a unique clinicopathologic entity characterized as a malignant small cell tumor of the thoracopulmonary region in 20 children and adolescents (average age 14.5 years). There was a female predilection (75%) for this tumor which appeared to originate in the soft tissues of the chest wall or the peripheral lung. The neoplasm tended to(More)
