PURPOSE This Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) trial of paclitaxel (Taxol; Bristol-Myers Squibb Co, Princeton, NJ) as salvage therapy for recurrent epithelial carcinoma of the ovary sought to confirm activity reported previously. If positive, the trial was to serve as a basis for phase III trials of Taxol in combination with platinum compounds in first-line(More)
Recent studies have shown that ACE inhibitors reduce morbidity and mortality after myocardial infarction (MI). While these trials have obvious clinical implications, the widespread introduction of a new treatment for a condition as common as MI also has clear cost implications. The results of the post-MI studies with ACE inhibitors suggest that restricted(More)
Antihypertensive drugs slow the progressive decline in renal function seen in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes and nephropathy. In a recent study, the ACE inhibitor captopril protected against this deterioration in renal function. We developed an economic model to analyse the cost impact of ACE inhibitor treatment on progression to endstage renal(More)
Several committees were established by the National Association of Physicians for the Environment to investigate and report on various topics at the National Leadership Conference on Biomedical Research and the Environment held at the 1--2 November 1999 at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. This is the report of the Committee on(More)
In this study, two different radioactive microspheres were used to measure blood flow of an irradiated segment of small intestine in four dogs before, and 12 days after, irradiation with 2000 rad. The technique and implications are discussed. Using multiple radioactive microspheres, the study demonstrated an increased blood flow in irradiated tissues twelve(More)

The suffixes of the nominal declension in the Old Canary and Etruscan languages are very similar to the corresponding elements of the Sumerian and Ural-Altaic tongues. Also many words of funeral and generally cultic provenance are derived from common roots in these languages. So one may assume that the Indoeuropean tongues of (West) Europe overlaid a common(More)
1 along with many others, claims that the bipartisan liberal internationalist coalition driving U.S. foreign policy since World War II has " unraveled " over time. 2 Rising partisan divisions have fractured this coalition and destroyed the consensus on interna-tionalism. According to Kupchan and Trubowitz, " As the partisan gyre in Washington widens, the(More)
Two different radioactive microspheres (141Ce and 46Sc) were used to measure blood flow to an area of the large intestine in dogs before and after a surgical resection was performed with surgical staples. The healing of an anastomosis is theoretically related to the blood flow to the anastomotic site. Blood flow studies were conducted in three dogs using(More)
