Serum levels of total 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), vitamin D binding protein (DBP), sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), testosterone, estradiol 17 beta (E2) and the "free" 1,25(OH)2D index were measured before and during treatment in prostatic cancer patients treated by orchidectomy (n = 15), with combined i.m. polyestradiol phosphate (PEP) + oral(More)
To study the influence of tumour mass on lipid metabolism, the lipoprotein pattern in untreated patients with newly diagnosed cancer of the prostate was examined. Total cholesterol levels were reduced in patients with evidence of metastasis (n = 30) compared with those without metastasis (n = 73). Since the major fraction of serum cholesterol is contained(More)
New low-impedance vacuum chambers were installed in the SLC damping rings for the 1994 run after finding a single bunch instability with the old chamber. Although the threshold is lower with the new vacuum chamber, the instability is less severe, and we are now routinely operating at intensities of 4.5× 10 10 particles per bunch (ppb) compared to 3×10 10(More)
Vibration measurements of the linear accelerator structures in the SLC linac show a 1 micron rms vertical motion. This motion reduces to 0.2 micron rms motion when the cooling water to the accelerator structures is turned off. The quadrupoles have 250 nanometer rms vertical motion with the accelerator structure cooling water on and 60 nanometer motion with(More)
Spectral analysis of beam jitter in the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) has shown that some beam motion is confined to narrow frequency bands. Vibration analyses of linac quadrupoles using high-resolution accelerometers yield spectra having a similar footprint. It was found that motion at 59 Hz is driven by a pressure oscillation in the accelerator structure(More)
Transverse pulse-to-pulse trajectory instability, 'jitter', in the linac of the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC) can be caused by various sources, including mechanical vibration, poor power supply regulation, and malfunctioning of trajectory feedbacks systems. Additionally, the linac can amplify pulse to pulse centroid motion that originates in the damping ring(More)
To reveal the effects of different hormonal treatments directly on the prostate during treatment, the concentration of prostate-specific antigen in the tissue (T-PSA) was studied in 63 patients with untreated newly diagnosed carcinoma of the prostate (CaP). T-PSA measurements were performed in fine-needle aspiration biopsies at the time of diagnosis and 6,(More)
Transient waveform digitizers are used to measure the tunes in the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) damping rings. Since the beam injection and extraction from these rings occurs at a high rate (120 Hz) and because of the stringent extracted beam stability requirements, simpler asynchronous resonant excitation spectrum analyzer measurements are not possible.(More)
The influence of aging upon serum concentrations of testicular steroids, sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and pituitary hormones and on adrenal steroid levels and adrenal steroid response to ACTH was studied in 81 healthy men aged 20-87 years. These endocrine variables were also compared in 43 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), aged 58-89(More)
