Surgical resection is the only curative modality for colorectal liver metastases (CLM), and the pattern of recurrences after resection affects survival. In a prospective study of liver transplantation (Lt) for nonresectable CLM we have shown a 5-year overall survival rate of 60 %, but 19 of 21 experienced recurrence.

The treatment principle used was based on loading professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs) from peripheral blood with a synthetic ras peptide corresponding to the ras mutation found in tumour tissue from the patient.(More)
To examine the effect of an ultrasound contrast medium (UCM), Infoson, on Doppler examination of stenotic arteries. Stenoses were created in the common carotid artery of six piglets, and examined with spectral Doppler and color Doppler imaging during UCM infusion in the left ventricle. UCM caused a mean increase in recorded maximal systolic and(More)
