To molecularly define high-risk disease, we performed microarray analysis on tumor cells from 532 newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma (MM) treated on 2 separate protocols. Using log-rank tests of expression quartiles, 70 genes, 30% mapping to chromosome 1 (P < .001), were linked to early disease-related death. Importantly, most up-regulated genes(More)
Measures shown to improve the adenoma detection during colonoscopy (excellent bowel preparation, cecal intubation, cap fitted colonoscope to examine behind folds, patient position change to optimize colon distention, trained endoscopy team focusing on detection of subtle flat lesions, and incorporation of optimum endoscopic examination with adequate(More)
The energetic events on the sun, solar wind and subsequent effects on the Earth's geomagnetic field and upper atmosphere (ionosphere) comprise space weather. Modern navigation systems that use radio-wave signals, reflecting from or propagating through the ionosphere as a means of determining range or distance, are vulnerable to a variety of effects that can(More)
OBJECTIVES Impact of cytomegalovirus (CMV)-related hospitalization in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine hospital outcomes of CMV-related hospitalization in IBD patients in a large national in-patient administrative data set. METHODS This was a cross-sectional study using data from the Nationwide(More)
A 79-year-old woman presented with abdominal discomfort and unintentional weight loss. A computed tomography scan demonstrated a 7-cm complex pancreatic cystic lesion (PCL) along with multiple hepatic cystic lesions (Figure 1). Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) demonstrated a 7.1 cm x 6.7 cm anechoic cystic lesion with an irregularly thick wall and multiple mural(More)
Background and aims: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (nCLE) characteristics of pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) have been identified in studies where the gold standard surgical histopathology was available in a minority of patients. There are diverging reports of interobserver agreement (IOA) and paucity of(More)
OBJECTIVES Performing a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy is recommended for assessment of disease activity, excluding infection, and guiding medical treatment during ulcerative colitis (UC)-related hospitalizations. However, it is unknown whether the timing of endoscopy impacts clinical outcomes. The objective of our study was to determine the impact of timing(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Extra-pancreatic cysts (EPCs) are incidentally found in patients with pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs). The aim of this study is to find the prevalence of concurrent EPC in patients with PCLs, investigate associations with neoplastic lesions, and compare the prevalence of EPC to a control population.
