Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a locally recurrent bone lesion that has been regarded as a reactive process. Recently, a neoplastic basis in primary ABC was evidenced by demonstration of clonal chromosome band 17p13 translocations that place the USP6 (TRE2 or TRE17) oncogene under the regulatory influence of the highly active CDH11 promoter. Herein, we(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant struma ovarii (MSO) are rare tumors that arise from ectopic thyroid tissue in the ovary, benign struma ovarii (BSO). Most MSO are histologically classified as papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC). Oncogenic activation of BRAF (35% to 69%), RAS (10%), or RET (5% to 30%) is common in PTC, and the mutations correlate with tumor subtype,(More)
Chronic administration of drisapersen, a 2'-OMe phosphorothioate antisense oligonucleotide (AON) to mice and monkeys resulted in renal tubular accumulation, with secondary tubular degeneration. Glomerulopathy occurred in both species with species-specific characteristics. Glomerular lesions in mice were characterized by progressive hyaline matrix(More)
Radiation at lambda = 488.0 nm was used to obtain Raman scattering in ice Ih (atmospheric pressure, hexagonal structure). New Stokes spectra were detected for frequency shifts less than 50 cm(-1), and new anti-Stokes spectra were observed for frequency shifts to -212.5 cm(-1). Measurements of total differential Raman scattering cross sections were made for(More)
The considerable utility of ultrasensitive microwave radar in atmospheric studies can now be augmented by lidar and acoustic echo-sounding techniques. The current and potential capabilities, and limitations, of these methods of remote atmospheric probing are discussed and the techniques are compared. From this analysis the conclusion emerges that a remote(More)
A simple inversion technique in the single scattering regime has been developed to deduce cloud droplet size parameters by using the measurement of the radiance of near-forward scattered solar radiation as a function of angle. Compared with the numerical inversion technique that uses exact Mie scattering calculations, the new technique is much less(More)
