To investigate how various levels of exposure affect the metabolic activation pathways of benzene in humans and to examine the relationship between urinary metabolites and other biological markers, we have developed a sensitive and specific liquid chromatographic-tandem mass spectrometric assay for simultaneous quantitation of urinary S-phenylmercapturic… (More)
To investigate the ways in which different levels of exposure affect the metabolic activation pathways of benzene in humans, and to examine the relationship between urinary metabolites and other biological markers, we have developed two sensitive and specific liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) assays for quantitation of the benzene… (More)
Nasal and paranasal malignant tumours account for less than 5% of all head and neck malignancies. Epithelial malignancies overwhelmingly predominate, with squamous cell carcinomas representing the most frequent histological subtype in this location. Soft-tissue sarcomas of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are exceedingly rare. Here, we report two… (More)
The use of herbal teas is now widespread in our community--even among children. The effect of dosing children with these products is unknown. The authors feel that the potential hazards associated with herbal teas need to be exposed.
Recurrent renal cell carcinoma (RCC) that presents as a solitary metastasis to the bladder is extremely rare. We report our experience with two patients who presented with hematuria within 1 year of their radical nephrectomy. Both patients underwent endoscopic resection of the tumor metastasis. One patient developed a metastasis in the head of pancreas… (More)
Neurofibromas are slow-growing, painless, benign nerve-sheath tumors. They occur most commonly in the dermis and subcutis and are rarely found in the breast. We report a rare case of a solitary neurofibroma of the breast in a 61-year-old asymptomatic woman.
