There is general agreement that terrestrial systems in the Northern Hemisphere provide a significant sink for atmospheric CO2; however, estimates of the magnitude and distribution of this sink vary greatly. National forest inventories provide strong, measurement-based constraints on the magnitude of net forest carbon uptake. We brought together forest(More)
BACKGROUND The alpha-emitter radium-223 ((223)Ra) is a bone-seeking radionuclide studied as a new treatment for patients with bone metastases from hormone-refractory prostate cancer. We aimed to study mature outcomes from a randomised, multicentre, phase II study of (223)Ra. METHODS Patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer and bone pain needing(More)
PURPOSE The main goals were to study the safety and tolerability of the alpha-emitter radium-223 (223Ra) in breast and prostate cancer patients with skeletal metastases. In addition, pain palliation was evaluated. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Fifteen prostate and 10 breast cancer patients enrolled in a phase I trial received a single i.v. injection of 223Ra. Five(More)
The first St Gallen Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) Expert Panel identified and reviewed the available evidence for the ten most important areas of controversy in advanced prostate cancer (APC) management. The successful registration of several drugs for castration-resistant prostate cancer and the recent studies of chemo-hormonal(More)
OBJECTIVE Borderline ovarian tumors have a favorable prognosis. Previous epidemiological studies indicate common risk factors for invasive epithelial ovarian cancers and borderline tumors, but it remains unresolved whether these tumors are precursors of invasive cancers or a separate disease entity. The objective of this population-based case-control study(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the dose-response relationship and pain-relieving effect of radium-223, a highly bone-targeted alpha-pharmaceutical. METHODS One hundred patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and painful bone metastases were randomized to a single intravenous dose of 5, 25, 50 or 100 k Bq/kg radium-223. The primary end-point was(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary supplement use is increasing, but there are few comparable data on supplement intakes and how they affect the nutrition and health of European consumers. The aim of this study was to describe the use of dietary supplements in subsamples of the 10 countries participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition(More)
Celiac disease (CD) is a common chronic inflammatory disorder of the small intestine with a multifactorial aetiology. HLA is a well-known risk factor, but other genetic factors also influence disease susceptibility. To identify the genes involved in this disorder, we performed a genome-wide scan on 106 well-defined Swedish and Norwegian families with at(More)
LBA4512 Background: Radium-223 chloride (Ra-223), a targeted alpha-emitter, targets bone metastases (mets) with high-energy alpha-particles of short range (<100 µm). ALSYMPCA, a phase III double-blind, randomized, multinational study, compared Ra-223 plus best standard of care (BSC) vs placebo plus BSC in CRPC patients (pts) with bone mets. In a planned(More)
A blood sample before treatment was taken from 35 women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. Levels of nicotine and cotinine were analyzed by radioimmunoassay. Both cotinine and, especially, nicotine were shown to be strongly concentrated in cervical mucus compared with serum levels. These findings confirm the association shown in epidemiologic studies(More)
