Two types of chemotherapy used in the treatment of patients with malignant glioma are carboplatin and Gliadel wafer [(3.85% 1,3-bis-(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (BCNU)]. To date there have been no published data examining their concurrent use in this disease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate combination chemotherapy with Gliadel wafer and(More)
Exclusive production of 0 and J== mesons in e + p collisions has been studied with the ZEUS detector in the kinematic range 0:25 < Q 2 < 50 GeV 2 , 20 < W < 167 GeV for the 0 data and 2 < Q 2 < 40 GeV 2 , 50 < W < 150 GeV for the J== data. Cross sections for exclusive 0 and J== production have been measured as a function of Q 2 , W and t. The spin-density(More)
Using the ZEUS detector at HERA, we have studied the reaction e + p ! e + X for Q 2 > 5000 GeV 2 with a 20:1 pb ?1 data sample collected during the years 1994 to 1996. For Q 2 below 15000GeV 2 , the data are in good agreement with Standard Model expectations. For Q 2 > 35000 GeV 2 , two events are observed while 0:145 0:013 events are expected. A(More)
The photoproduction of prompt photons, together with an accompanying jet, has been studied in ep collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 77 pb −1. Cross sections were measured for the transverse energy of the photon and the jet larger than 5 and 6 GeV, respectively. The differential(More)
The safety and efficacy of gemcitabine and concurrent radiation to the upper abdomen followed by weekly gemcitabine in patients with resected pancreatic cancer was determined. Patients with resected adenocarcinoma of the pancreas were treated with intravenous gemcitabine administered twice-weekly (40 mg m(-2)) for 5 weeks concurrent with upper abdominal(More)
The dependence of dijet production on the virtuality of the exchanged photon, Q 2 , has been studied by measuring dijet cross sections in the range 0 < ∼ Q 2 < 2000 GeV 2 with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 38.6 pb −1. Dijet cross sections were measured for jets with transverse energy E jet T > 7.5 and 6.5 GeV and(More)
In deep inelastic neutral current scattering of positrons and protons at the center of mass energy of 300 GeV, we observe, with the ZEUS detector, events with a high energy neutron produced at very small scattering angles with respect to the proton direction. The events constitute a fixed fraction of the deep inelastic, neutral current event sample(More)
The ZEUS detector has been used to study dissociation of virtual photons in events with a leading proton, γ ⋆ p → Xp, in e + p collisions at HERA. The data cover photon virtualities in two ranges, 0.03 < Q 2 < 0.60 GeV 2 and 2 < Q 2 < 100 GeV 2 , with M X > 1.5 GeV, where M X is the mass of the hadronic final state, X. Events were required to have a leading(More)
The e + p neutral-current deep inelastic scattering diierential cross-sections dd=dQ 2 , for Q 2 > 400 GeV 2 , dd=dx and dd=dy, for Q 2 > 400, 2500 and 10000 GeV 2 , have been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA. The data sample of 47.7 pb ?1 was collected at a center-of-mass energy of 300 GeV. The cross-section, dd=dQ 2 , falls by six orders of(More)
BACKGROUND Primary brain sarcomas are rarely curable with surgery and standard radiation therapy. They typically recur locally within 6 months of treatment. This case report describes a novel treatment approach for primary or recurrent brain sarcomas with intracavitary brachytherapy. CASE DESCRIPTION This 34-year-old female presented with a large and(More)
