We evaluated the relationship between the radiological indices that assessed the proximal femoral morphology and the degree of osteoporosis in 45 Chinese cadaveric femora. Canal-calcar ratio, canal flare index, morphological cortical index, and canal bone ratio were determined in the plain anteroposterior radiographs. Canal bone ratio is the ratio between(More)
PURPOSE Patupilone is a microtubule-targeting chemotherapeutic agent with clinical activity in a broad range of taxane-sensitive/resistant tumor types. The present phase Ib study examined the safety/tolerability and pharmacokinetics of patupilone in combination with carboplatin in patients with advanced solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with(More)

We read with interest the article by Reeves et al. on the prediction of nonsentinel lymph node status in melanoma. The authors are to be congratulated for developing a scoring system, which predicts the nonsentinel node status in melanoma patients using the characteristics of the primary tumor and the amount of metastasis in the sentinel lymph node (SLN).1(More)
