Recently, the RTOG and ECOG concluded a joint randomized study on malignant gliomas that was in progress for the past five years. A total of 626 patients entered this protocol. Sixty-seven percent of the 535 evaluable patients have died and thus this represents a preliminary report of a major joint clinical trial. The objective of this study was to evaluate(More)
Between June 1973 and February 1979, 409 patients with inoperable advanced non-oat cell carcinoma of the lung were randomized on RTOG protocol 73-02. Three treatment arms were evaluated: 40 Gy split course, 30 Gy continuous course, and 40 Gy continuous course. Patients were also randomized to receive cytoxan or no further therapy following irradiation.(More)
This report details the patterns of tumor recurrence in two prospective randomized studies involving 551 patients with histologically proven unresectable or medically inoperable non-oat cell carcinoma of the lung treated with definitive radiotherapy. Patients were treated according to two protocols, depending on the stage of the tumor: (1) Patients with T1,(More)
Cardiopulmonary bypass using nonpulsatile flow (NF) is currently advocated for treating refractory cardiac arrest. Although the heart can be revived using cardiopulmonary bypass support, the brain must recover if such therapy is to be considered successful. Previous studies have demonstrated that pulsatile flow (PF) reperfusion can improve neurologic(More)
In this paper we describe two simple experimental models of diffuse interstitial renal fibrosis in the rat. One develops 25 days after unilateral renal vein ligation, and the other 15 days after unilateral ureteral double ligation and section. In both models fibrosis is examined morphologically and biochemically, the latter with emphasis on collagen(More)
The susceptibility of hepatic collagen to homologous collagenase in human and experimental CCl4 cirrhosis of the liver has been explored in vitro by exposure of cryostat liver sections to the corresponding enzymes for different time periods. The morphology and extent of collagen degradation was studied by the Picrosirius red/polarizing microscopy technique.(More)
The injection of 1 x 10(6) trophozoites of axenically grown Entamoeba histolytica strain HM-1 in the subcutaneous tissue of the rat results in an acute and self-limited inflammatory process, characterized by the early onset of conspicuous tissue necrosis and focal hemorrhage in the vicinity of the parasites, followed by infiltration with polymorphonuclear(More)
Collagenolytic activity has been measured in insoluble sediments of normal and CCl4-induced cirrhotic rat liver. Two techniques were used: in one assay, the insoluble liver sediments were incubated with a radioactively labeled exogenous substrate; in the other assay, the endogenous collagen present in the insoluble liver sediments served as the substrate.(More)
