Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM) is an unusual occurrence in systemic cancer, occurring in as few as 2% of autopsy cases and also represents 8.5% of all cases of central nervous system metastases. Although ISCM from small cell lung carcinoma is well documented, ISCM from non-small cell lung carcinoma of the lung is rarely diagnosed prior to the(More)
We report the first field trial of different transgenic lines of Indica Basmati rice (B-370) expressing cry1Ac and cry2A genes. Different transgenic lines were grown under field conditions for two consecutive years, according to RCBD and Split Plot Design respectively. All the biosafety measures were taken into consideration. Sixty neonate larvae of yellow(More)
The proliferative rate of a tumor has been considered predictive of its clinical course. We evaluated the expression of the proliferative marker Ki-67 and its relationship to survival, disease-free survival and other clinicopathologic variables in both stage I and stage II non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A total of 260 patients with surgically resected(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the survival of untreated stage I and II in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of medical charts of all patients diagnosed with early stage NSCLC, between January 1990 and December 2001, was conducted and patients who were not treated were identified.(More)
INTRODUCTION HER-2/neu overexpression has been associated with poor prognosis in a variety of malignancies. The extent and relevance of HER-2/neu overexpression in human central nervous system (CNS) malignancies is unclear. We retrospectively analyzed a large cohort of patients with primary malignant brain tumors to evaluate the role of HER-2/neu(More)
INTRODUCTION Her-2/neu overexpression has been recently shown to be a poor prognostic factor in breast carcinoma. Overexpression has also been demonstrated in adenocarcinoma of the pancreas but the significance is unclear. We attempted to study the role of Her-2/neu overexpression, detected by immunohistochemistry, in pancreatic carcinoma and also examined(More)
An 85-yr-old male presented with complaints of a 40-lb weight loss and a dull left upper quadrant abdominal pain. He also complained of decreased appetite, generalized weakness, generally not feeling well, and a dull left upper quadrant abdominal pain that was not relieved by food. He had a ventral and a left-sided inguinal hernia. Laboratory investigations(More)
