PURPOSE Trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) is an antibody-drug conjugate comprising trastuzumab and DM1, a microtubule polymerization inhibitor, covalently bound via a stable thioether linker. To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of T-DM1 in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer, data from four(More)
In normal chewing the forces exerted on the occlusal surface seldom exceeded 10 to 15 pounds, as recorded by an eight-channel force transmitter in a removable fixed partial denture. Ninety-five percent of forces were less than 3.5 pounds for subject A, 2.0 pounds for subject B, and 10.0 pounds for subject C. The chewing frequency and the places of maximal(More)
A longitudinal electromyographic study of the swallowing activity of the anterior temporal and masseter muscles was performed on 21 subjects with complete dentures. In six patients, the lip activity was recorded. At the pretreatment stage, when the patients had a residual anterior dentition, the peak mean voltages of the elevators showed low values (range(More)
An electromyographic study of the masseter and anterior part of the temporalis muscles was performed on ten patients presenting temporomandibular joint dysfunction symptoms. The EMG silent periods (SP) produced in the open-close-clench cycle and jaw-jerk reflex were compared for duration before and after treatment with an occlusal bite splint. Following use(More)
EMG study of subjects wearing immediate complete upper and lower dentures revealed marked alterations in activity of the jaw closing muscles during the biting actions recorded. This finding suggests that changes in jaw and occlusal relationships due to resorption of residual ridges and settling of the dentures also affects jaw muscle activity. The relations(More)
In a sample of fifteen partially edentulous subjects assigned for immediate complete denture treatment, a correlation analysis was performed between pre-extraction facial morphology determined from lateral cephalograms, and EMG activity of the anterior temporal and masseter muscles in maximal clench and tapping of teeth. Marked correlations observed between(More)
A longitudinal electromyographic study of the anterior temporal and masseter activity during habitual chewing of apple was performed on 21 subjects provided with immediate complete dentures. At the pretreatment stage, when the patients having an anterior residual dentition were chewing, the peak mean voltages showed low values (range, 48 to 58 microV).(More)
