With recent advances in cell culture techniques it is possible to isolate human SCs from adult peripheral nerves, expand and purify their number in cell culture, and construct a cellular prosthesis from the cultured cells. The current study was designed to ascertain whether these techniques could be used to repair nonhuman primate nerve injuries. In 12(More)

PURPOSE To examine the potential radiosensitising properties of trabectedin (ET-743, Yondelis). METHODS AND MATERIALS In vitro chemosensitivity was assessed in four tumour cell lines (DU145, HeLa, HT29, HOP62) by the crystal violet method. IC10s and IC50s were established for 1-h, 24-h and 7-day (continuous) exposure times. Radiosensitisation was(More)
PURPOSE To assess the impact of modality therapy on long-term outcome for infradiaphragmatic Hodgkin's disease (IDHD). METHODS AND MATERIALS During the period 1965-1997, 847 patients with early stage Hodgkin's disease (HD) were evaluated and treated at our institution, 20 of them had IDHD (2.4%). Patients characteristics: stage I, nine patients (five(More)
BACKGROUND Providing adjuvant chemotherapy in locally advanced rectal cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiation is currently a matter of debate. Recommendations from clinical guidelines range from offering no treatment to oxaliplatin-based combinations. We present a risk-adapted approach based on the response to initial chemoradiation as the strongest(More)
