Our aim is to identify as many candidates as possible for tumor-associated T-cell epitopes in individual patients. First, we performed expression profiling of tumor and normal tissue to identify genes exclusively expressed or overexpressed in the tumor sample. Then, using mass spectrometry, we characterized up to 77 different MHC ligands from the same tumor(More)
A group of Ti(60)Cu(14)Ni(12)Sn(4)M(10) (M=Nb, Ta, Mo) alloys was prepared using arc melting and copper mold casting. The as-prepared alloys have a composite microstructure containing a micrometer-sized dendritic beta-Ti(M) phase dispersed in a nanocrystalline matrix. These new alloys exhibit a low Young's modulus in the range of 59-103 GPa, and a high(More)
BACKGROUND Interstitial brachytherapy with I-125 seeds can be used for successful treatment of early stage prostate cancer. There is presented the technique of permanent transperineal implantation of I-125 seeds with intraoperative treatment planning which is suited for the treatment of prostate cancer up to the clinical stage of T2a.

BACKGROUND Early stage prostate cancer can be treated successfully by interstitial brachytherapy with 125-iodine seeds. A quality-assurance programme is presented that was designed for this purpose for internal clinical use. Furthermore the requirements of the new German Ordinance Governing Radiation Protection (StrlSchV) that came into force on August 1,(More)
Measurements of the low-energy electronic structure in Gd2PdSi3 and Tb2PdSi3 by means of angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy reveal a Fermi surface consisting of an electron barrel at the Gamma point surrounded by spindle-shaped electron pockets originating from the same band. The calculated momentum-dependent RKKY coupling strength is peaked at the(More)
Magnetic materials are usually divided into two classes: those with localised magnetic moments, and those with itinerant charge carriers. We present a comprehensive experimental (spectroscopic ellipsomerty) and theoretical study to demonstrate that these two types of magnetism do not only coexist but complement each other in the Kondo-lattice metal,(More)
Angiogenesis is essential for tumour growth. Mostly hypervasculariced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) usually express angiogenic factors, e.g. basic fibroblast factor (bFGF), vascular endothelial growth factor, and angiogenin (ag). This study was designed to evaluate the improvement of serological angiogenesis-factors, their prognostic relevance and correlation(More)
