Ceria (CeO(2)) is a technologically important rare earth material because of its unique properties and various engineering and biological applications. A facile and rapid method has been developed to prepare ceria nanoparticles using microwave with the average size 7 nm in the presence of a set of ionic liquids based on the bis (trifluoromethylsulfonyl)(More)
CD56 is a neural adhesion molecule and expressed in 70-80% cases of multiple myeloma (MM). Lack of CD56 expression has shown to be a poor prognosis in MM patients treated with conventional chemotherapy, but its prognostic relevance in MM treated with high dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) is not known. CD56 expression was(More)
PURPOSE In order to evaluate fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) as a method for predicting radiosensitivity, this study examined the incidence of translocations, after exposure to in vitro radiation, in both normally responding patients and those exhibiting severe late effects after radiotherapy treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients were(More)
Background and Purpose. This project examined the in vitro   γ H2AX response in lymphocytes of prostate cancer patients who had a radiosensitive response after receiving radiotherapy. The goal of this project was to determine whether the γ H2AX response, as measured by flow cytometry, could be used as a marker of individual patient radiosensitivity.(More)
PURPOSE In vitro irradiated blood samples from prostate cancer patients showing late normal tissue damage were examined for lymphocyte response by measuring chromosomal aberrations and proliferation rate. METHODS AND MATERIALS Patients were selected from a randomized trial evaluating the optimal timing of dose-escalated radiation and short-course androgen(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 10% of new breast cancer patients will present with overt synchronous metastatic disease. The optimal local management of those patients is controversial. Several series suggest that removal of the primary tumour is associated with a survival benefit, but the retrospective nature of those studies raises considerable methodologic(More)
e11511 Background: Approximately 10% of new breast cancer patients will present with concurrent metastatic disease. Controversy exists about the optimal local management of these patients as some retrospective studies suggest a survival benefit to removing the primary. In the absence of prospective data many physicians will recommend surgery for, "local(More)
OBJECTIVE Cancer survivors treated with abdominal/pelvic radiation therapy (ART) have increased the risks of colorectal cancer (CRC), although evidence supporting early CRC screening for these patients is lacking. We sought to determine whether there is an elevated prevalence of adenomatous colorectal polyps in young survivors prior to the age when(More)
