Livin/BIRC7 is a member of the inhibitors of apoptosis proteins family, which are involved in tumor development through the inhibition of caspases. Aim was to investigate the expression of livin and other members of its pathway in adrenocortical tumors and in the adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) cell line NCI-H295R.The mRNA expression of livin, its isoforms α(More)
The efficacy and safety of the analgesic drug ketorolac tromethamine in the treatment of moderate to very severe postoperative pain was assessed in five dose-ranging studies with single-dose, double-blind, randomized, parallel-group designs. The drug was administered orally (2.5-200 mg, 352 patients in three trials) and intramuscularly (5-90 mg, 395(More)
BACKGROUND Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a malignant disease most commonly diagnosed in the setting of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and in patients receiving immunosuppressive treatment. Pulmonary KS has never been reported in association with endogenous Cushing's syndrome (CS). CASE PRESENTATION A 60-year-old woman presented with symptoms and(More)
Most of the lymphoproliferative diseases involving the salivary glands represent indolent non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphoma (marginal zone lymphoma) related to chronic autoimmune sialadenitis (Sjögren disease). Other types of non-Hodgkin lymphomas involve the salivary glands less frequently. On rare occasions, classical Hodgkin lymphoma (CHL) and nodular(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrence of adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) even after complete (R0) resection occurs frequently. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to identify markers with prognostic value for patients in this clinical setting. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS From the German ACC registry, 319 patients with the European Network for the Study of Adrenal(More)
The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the feasibility and potential advantages of freehand single-photon emission computed tomography (fhSPECT) compared with conventional intraoperative localization techniques for sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in oral cancer. Between November 2012 and February 2014, 23 consecutive patients with clinical(More)
BACKGROUND In oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), cervical lymph node status is the most important prognostic factor. Compared to elective neck dissection, reduced morbidity and better quality of life was demonstrated for sentinel lymph node biopsy, which is controversial because of the reduced detection rate of sentinel lymph nodes in close proximity to(More)
This study compared the efficacy and safety of ketorolac tromethamine and morphine sulfate in alleviating moderate or severe pain immediately after major surgery. One hundred twenty-two patients were randomly assigned to receive single intravenous injections of ketorolac 10 mg, ketorolac 30 mg, morphine 2 mg, or morphine 4 mg; patients could receive a(More)
C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) and somatostatin receptors (SSTR) are overexpressed in gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET). In this study, we aimed to elucidate the feasibility of non-invasive CXCR4 positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging in GEP-NET patients using [68Ga]Pentixafor in comparison to(More)
Endogenous NO and hydrogen sulfide form HNO, which causes CGRP release via TRPA1 channel activation in sensory nerves. In the present study, stimulation of intact trigeminal afferent neuron preparations with NO donors, Na2S or both was analyzed by measuring CGRP release as an index of mass activation. Combined stimulation was able to activate all parts of(More)
