PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term efficacy of concurrent radiotherapy with mitomycin-C (MMC)-based or cisplatin (CP)-based combinations in a cohort of patients with locally advanced anal canal carcinoma. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 1988 and 2000, 179 patients with locally advanced anal canal carcinoma were treated at the Instituto Nacional de Câncer(More)

METHODS In a prospective way 161 adult patients admitted to the units of Intensive Care (ICU), General Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthopedics of the Centro de Emergencias Médicas in Asunción, Paraguay, from March 2002(More)
A sample of 1,024 newborns in Recife, Brazil, was studied to help determine the precision with which arem circumference measurements could be used to indicate low birth weight. The results support the view that when birth weight data are unobtainable, arm circumference measurements may be of value in screening for newborns needing special care.
Sir, Haemoglobin (Hb) Kenitra is an asymptomatic variant of the b-globin chain [a2b2 69, Gly ?Arg (GGT ? CGT)], slow-moving Hb that can interfere with HbA1c and HbA2 measurements, and is therefore an occasional incidental finding. Hb Kenitra has been described to occur both alone (in a Moroccan man) [1] and in combination with other haemoglobinopathies(More)
The authors studied 1,024 newborns in Recife, Brazil, to determine the association between arm circumference and birth weight. A strong correlation between these two parameters was found (R = +0.78). Specificity and sensitivity of this measurement in detecting low birth weight were also high. The authors concluded that arm circumference can be used as an(More)
