Testicular carcinomas, pediatric tumors, and some mesenchymal tumors are examples of rapidly proliferating cell populations, for which the tumor volume doubling time (TVDT) can be counted in days. Cancers from the breast, prostate, and colon are frequently slow-growing, displaying a TVDT of months or years. Irrespective of their growth rates, most human(More)
The present paper describes the influence of cross talk from the abdominal and intercostal muscles on the canine diaphragm electromyogram (EMG). The diaphragm EMG was recorded with bipolar surface electrodes placed on the costal portion of the diaphragm (abdominal side), aligned in the fiber direction, and positioned in a region with a relatively low(More)
Techniques are described for recording evoked potentials in humans in response to stimulation of the urinary bladder. Twenty patients with various disorders of their urinary function were investigated. Evoked cortical potentials following stimulation of the urinary bladder could be recorded from all patients except subjects with complete transverse spinal(More)
Repeated EEG examinations are often used in diagnostically difficult cases to assess whether an EEG abnormality is progressive, regressive, or stationary. The conventional visual method is, however, poorly adapted to consider the variability when consecutive EEG recordings are compared. Using computer analysis of EEGs, the feature of the recordings as well(More)
Radiography of 60 normal wrists was performed in 50 adults to determine the inclination of the distal joint surface of the radius. The central ray was directed 10 degrees proximally in postero-anterior projection and 15 degree proximally in lateral projection. The values obtained were compared with those from perpendicular projections. No dfferences were(More)
BACKGROUND Metastatic cells from a primary tumor can occur before the primary cancer is detected. Metastatic cells can also remain in the patient for many years after removal of the primary tumor without proliferating. These dormant malignant cells can awaken and cause recurrent disease decades after the primary treatment. The purpose of this article is to(More)
This review is written with the purpose to review the current nanomedicine literature and provide an outlook on the developments in utilizing nanoscale drug constructs in treatment of solid cancers as well as in the potential treatment of multi-drug resistant cancers. No specific design principles for this review have been utilized apart from our active(More)
Cortical evoked potentials following stimulation of the lower urinary tract have been recorded in humans. Of 26 patients investigated 9 had no urinary signs or symptoms except genuine stress incontinence, while the remaining 17 had various neurogenic bladder disorders. Monopolar and bipolar stimulation of the bladder and urethra was performed using(More)
