Reviews and evaluates psychosocial treatments for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents according to Task Force Criteria (Lonigan, Elbert, & Johnson, this issue). It is concluded that behavioral parent training and behavioral interventions in the classroom meet criteria for well-established treatments. Cognitive(More)
The objectives of this study were to define the relationship between the first order constant of Gd-DTPA transfer (K1) and the myocardial blood flow (MBF) at rest and to compare it with an equivalent relationship obtained for positron emission tomography (PET). In a canine model of permanent coronary occlusion (n = 4), myocardial and blood time(More)
INTRODUCTION Inaccuracy in identification of Indigenous status on health records hampers collection of the good quality data required to guide policies, programs and services. This study examined the use of an Indigenous Mental Health Worker Register to assess the level of correct identification of Indigenous status and sources of error among psychiatric(More)
K1 (first-order transfer constant from arterial plasma to myocardium for Gd-DTPA) and Vd (distribution volume of Gd-DTPA in myocardium) were measured in vivo in a canine model (n = 5) using MRI-derived myocardial perfusion curves and a compartmental model. Perfusion curves were obtained after a bolus injection of Gd-DTPA (0.04 mM/kg) with an(More)
BACKGROUND To help identify factors contributing to intra-patient Hb variability, pooled records were analyzed from 5,592 patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD) in European, multicenter, open-label, single-arm Phase 3b trials. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients previously treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) were switched to darbepoietin-alpha(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors evaluated the artifacts observed on myocardial perfusion curves derived from an inversion-prepared fast gradient-echo (GRE) imaging sequence in dogs after injection of a gadolinium-based contrast agent. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six mongrel dogs were divided into three groups. In groups 1 and 2, anesthesia was maintained(More)
Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) comprise a heterogenous group of malignancies with an often unpredictable course, and with limited treatment options. Thus, new diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic markers are needed. To shed new lights into the biology of NETs, we have by cDNA transcript profiling, sought to identify genes that are either up- or(More)
Fifteen patients with locally advanced refractory breast cancer have been treated with recombinant leucocyte interferon ( rIFN -alpha A) for up to 12 weeks. Toxicity was considerable with the initial dosage schedule employed but became acceptable after reducing the starting dose by 50%. Minor side effects occurred in all patients and major CNS toxicity in(More)
OBJECTIVES The CHOICE study was a prospective, multicentre, observational study designed to assess the level of adherence in current clinical practice to the European product label and the EORTC guidelines for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced anaemia with darbepoetin alfa (DA). METHODS Hb levels and red blood cell (RBC) transfusion requirements were(More)
