In vitro cell lines were established from seven biologically distinct in vivo Dunning R3327 rat prostatic tumor sublines. Some of these in vitro cell lines (i.e., G, AT-1, AT-2) retain a low metastatic ability when inoculated back into syngeneic Copenhagen male rats, while others (i.e., AT-3, MAT-LyLu, MAT-Lu) retain a very high metastatic ability. A series(More)
BACKGROUND Hypospadias is a common congenital malformation of the male external genitalia. Most cases have an unknown aetiology, which is probably a mix of monogenic and multifactorial forms, implicating both genes and environmental factors. This review summarizes current knowledge about the aetiology of hypospadias. METHODS Pubmed was used to identify(More)
BACKGROUND In 2002, an increased risk of hypospadias was reported for sons of women exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) in utero, suggesting transgenerational effects of DES. The aim of this study was to further assess the association between parental DES exposure and hypospadias in a case-referent study. METHODS Cases with hypospadias were retrieved from(More)
BACKGROUND Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is an optical technology. It detects the hemodynamic changes in tissues via noninvasive measurement of changes in the concentration of tissue chromophores such as oxyhemoglobin (O(2)Hb) and deoxyhemoglobin (HHb). Involuntary bladder contractions may cause changes detectable by NIRS. OBJECTIVE To address the(More)
Thirteen primary and metastatic testicular germ cell tumours, including classical and anaplastic seminomas, and non-seminomatous testicular tumours were examined for their intermediate filament protein (IFP) types. The seminomas were shown to react with a monoclonal and a polyclonal antibody to bovine lens vimentin, while non-seminomatous germ cell tumours(More)
CONTEXT Hypospadias is a common congenital malformation of the male external genitalia with a multifactorial etiology. Little is known about the genes involved in hypospadias. A few genetic associations have been reported but mainly in studies of small sample size. Most of these associations have not been replicated. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effectiveness of urotherapy in children with lower urinary tract dysfunction, according to the new definitions of the International Children's Continence Society. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed a retrospective review of 122 children (aged 8.8 ± 2.0 years) treated in an outpatient program for lower urinary tract dysfunction.(More)
Fungal bezoars may be a cause of urinary tract obstruction and acute renal failure in neonates and young infants. We describe a female very low birth weight infant (25+3 weeks, 795 gram) who developed renal insufficiency on the basis of systemic fungal infection with fungal bezoars in both kidneys. The girl was treated by local irrigation of the kidneys and(More)
Urological anomalies are frequently seen in patients with anorectal malformations (ARM) and can result in upper urinary tract deterioration. Whether the current method of screening is valid, adequate and needed for all patients is not clear. We, therefore, evaluated the urological screening methods in our ARM patients for changes in urological treatment,(More)
Hypospadias is a common congenital malformation of the male external genitalia. We performed a genome-wide association study using pooled DNA from 436 individuals with hypospadias (cases) and 494 controls of European descent and selected the highest ranked SNPs for individual genotyping in the discovery sample, an additional Dutch sample of 133 cases and(More)
