Attempts to explain size variation in Drosophila and other small insects often focus on the larval stage and association between development time and size, but patterns are also influenced by direct selection on size-related traits in the adults. Here we use multiple field releases of Drosophila melanogaster to test the association between size and one(More)
Among 40 evaluable patients with metastatic renal cell cancer treated by high-dose interferon alpha-2a in combination with vinblastine, the authors have observed a 42.5% response rate. The 8 months' median duration of remissions is relatively short but some patients experience very long remissions, lasting many months after discontinuation of therapy. The(More)
Twenty patients with measurable metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) were were treated with interferon alfa-2a (Roferon-A), 36 X 10(6)U intramuscularly 3 times weekly, alone (2 patients) or in combination with vinblastine, 0.10-0.15 mg/kg intravenously every 2 to 3 weeks. Objective responses in the lung, bone, liver, and lymph node metastases were seen in(More)
Thirty-three patients with measurable metastatic renal cell carcinoma were entered into 2 consecutive phase II protocols using interferon alfa-2a. In protocol I, 20 patients were treated with interferon alfa-2a at a dose of 36 X 10(6) IU i.m. t.i.w. Vinblastine was also given to 18 of these patients at a dose of 0.10-0.15 mg/kg i.v. every 2-3 weeks,(More)
This study compared fleroxacin, 400 mg daily for 7 or 14 days, with chloramphenicol, 50 mg/kg per day for 14 days, for the treatment of patients with typhoid fever in a multicenter study. A total of 184 patients were randomly assigned to the three treatment groups. Efficacy was determined by culture of blood and stool, overall clinical response, and time to(More)
The combination of recombinant human interferon alpha A 9 MU daily intramuscularly and etretinate 50 mg daily orally was given to 25 patients with progressive advanced, metastatic melanoma. The treatment was well tolerated. Partial responses were seen in three (12%) patients lasting from 2 to 8 months. A further partial response was seen in one of three(More)
The objective of this open label, non-comparative study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of fleroxacin 400mg administered orally once daily to patients with acute osteomyelitis and/or acute septic arthritis. Nineteen patients (10 males and 9 females) were evaluable for the analysis of clinical efficacy and safety. Of these, 7 (36.8%) had(More)
The results of treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma have so far been very poor. Many phase II studies have shown that interferon alpha therapy is active in a significant proportion of patients (approximately 10 to 15% complete and partial remission). In the hope of improving these results we have conducted a phase I-II study of the combination of(More)
