PURPOSE To determine the prognostic significance of neuroendocrine differentiation (NED) in Gleason score 8-10 prostate cancer treated with primary radiotherapy (RT). METHODS AND MATERIALS Chromogranin A (CgA) staining was performed and overseen by a single pathologist on core biopsies from 176 patients from the William Beaumont prostate cancer database.(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the association of neuroendocrine differentiation, as identified by chromogranin A (CgA) staining, with clinical outcomes in newly diagnosed prostatic adenocarcinoma treated with definitive radiotherapy (RT). MATERIALS/METHODS Patients with Gleason score ≥7 adenocarcinoma were identified from our outcomes database. RT consisted of(More)
The Lac-du-Bonnet infrasound station, IS-10, and the Minnesota iron mines 390 km to the southeast are ideally located to assess the accuracy of atmospheric profiles needed for infrasound modeling. Infrasonic data from 2003 associated with explosions at the iron mine were analyzed for effects of explosion size and atmospheric conditions on observations with(More)
Primary cilia are hair-like organelles singly distributed along the apical surface of proximal and distal nephron tubules as mechanosensors. The goal of this study was to use electron microscopy to systemically evaluate cilia changes in acute tubular injury (ATI) from both transplant and native renal biopsies. Three groups of cases were included: control(More)
BACKGROUND Atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) remain the center of diagnostic controversy and patients' stress despite recent advances in cervical cancer screening and the introduction of human papilloma virus (HPV) testing. The role of infectious agents in the induction of such changes is not well understood. AIM We aim at(More)
