RESULTS: Of the 10,784 patients who underwent immediate prosthesis-based reconstruction, 5,516 (51%) filled antibiotic prescriptions. These patients were equally likely to develop an infection (OR 1.0 95%CI(0.85–1.18); p=0.98) or require explantation (OR 0.96 95%CI(0.80– 1.15); p=0.64) compared to those who did not. There was no difference in the likelihood(More)
METHODS: We analyzed the frequency and types of selfreported COI in three major plastic surgery journals since the adoption of reporting policies in 2007. All original articles that were published in three major plastic surgery journals from 2008 to 2014 were included. The type of self-reported COI was characterized into the following categories: research(More)
Before the second half of this century, treatment approaches to breast cancer were radical and disfiguring. In the past four decades, however, multiple prospective randomized trials have made highly significant advances in the management of patients with this disease. These trials have established, in select patients, breast conservation therapy as a(More)
 A replication-deficient recombinant vaccinia virus, NYVAC, was developed by deleting 18 open reading frames in the vaccinia virus genome. Recombinant NYVAC, encoding the murine T cell co-stimulatory gene B7.1 (CD 80) (NYVAC-B7.1) and the murine interleukin-2 gene (NYVAC-IL-2), were prepared and the expression of B7.1 and the secretion of IL-2 were(More)
