PURPOSE Current prognostic factors are poor at identifying patients at risk of disease recurrence after surgery for stage II colon cancer. Here we describe a DNA microarray-based prognostic assay using clinically relevant formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. PATIENTS AND METHODS A gene signature was developed from a balanced set of 73 patients(More)

The procedures evolved in the author's laboratory over the past 20 years for the microbiological assessment of antifungal drugs are described; methods are detailed for the estimation of the sensitivity of pathogenic fungi to therapeutic agents and for the assay of those agents in body fluids. The preparation and maintenance of stock reference solutions of(More)

The results of a prospective study on the incidence of thrombocytopenia in matched psychiatric inpatients receiving different antipsychotics are reported. Patients were receiving haloperidol (N = 159), chlorpromazine (N = 164), fluphenazine decanoate (N = 152), or no drug therapy (control, N = 102). The groups did not differ statistically in respect to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Intravenous (i.v.) hematin has been used in the treatment of acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) since the early 1970s and commercially available as Panhematin (hemin for injection; Ovation Pharmaceuticals, Inc., USA) since 1983, yet no publication to date has attempted to summarize the known pharmacodynamics and toxicological actions of hematin(More)
Using 10 years' enrollment history, patients with non-drug-induced Parkinson's disease were identified, and the prevalence of Parkinson's disease-induced psychosis (PDP) was estimated using three different claims algorithms based on an expert working group criteria. The estimated prevalence of PDP ranged from 4 to 45/1,000 Parkinson's disease patients. PDP(More)
5-Fluorocytosine (5 FC) showed marked in vitro activity against nearly all the clinical isolates of Candida and Cryptococcus examined; the required minimal inhibitory concentration was usually below 2 mug/ml and the minimal cidal concentration below 10 mug/ml. The drug had limited activity towards Aspergillus species and dermatophytes. Strains of Candida(More)
Laboratory studies on clotrimazole showed that it had marked activity in vitro against all the Candida spp. and Cryptococcus spp. tested, against almost all strains of dermatophytes, and against Aspergillus spp and other fungal genera responsible for systemic mycoses; it had limited activity towards Gram-positive bacteria. The majority of Candida strains(More)
