A retrospective analysis of clinical and pathological data was conducted on 706 patients (514 females and 192 males) treated for differentiated thyroid carcinoma at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute at Houston from 1951 to 1975 and followed to 1981. The histological diagnoses were mixed papillary/follicular carcinoma(More)
The therapeutic response and survival rates of 352 patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma who had received radioactive iodine therapy since 1951 were studied. Of these patients, 72% had metastases to the cervical lymph nodes, lungs, bone, or other viscera. Of all patients, 70% showed complete remission, and 30% showed partial response or recurrence(More)
The proliferative characteristics of myeloid leukemias were defined in vivo after intravenous infusions of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) in 40 patients. The percentage of S-phase cells obtained from the biopsies (mean, 20%) were significantly higher (P = .00003) than those determined from the bone marrow (BM) aspirates (mean, 9%). The post-BrdU infusion BM(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Studies have identified a 67-kilodalton high-affinity laminin receptor (LR) whose expression has also been related to development, differentiation, and neoplastic transformation. The relationship of the 67-kilodalton LR to hepatic and enterocyte development and to enterocyte differentiation was investigated. METHODS LR messenger RNA (mRNA)(More)
Lansoprazole is a potent proton pump inhibitor that has been well tolerated with minimal serious adverse events. One of the most commonly reported side effects is diarrhea in 3-8% of study patients. During 1997, approximately 850 veterans at our institution had their proton pump inhibitor converted from omeprazole to lansoprazole because of a formulary(More)
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that galactose clearance (GC) can measure acute changes in liver blood flow (LBF) in normal and cirrhotic dogs. Ten dogs were studied. GC was measured preop. At laparotomy, GC, hepatic artery (HA) flow, portal vein (PV) flow, and cardiac output (CO) were measured at baseline, 50% portal vein occlusion (PVO), and(More)
Between June 1, 1976 and Mar. 31, 1983, the Sunnybrook Medical Centre Regional Trauma Unit in Toronto, Ont., admitted 145 patients with liver trauma; of these, 141 (97%) had sustained blunt liver trauma. Of 113 patients who underwent open peritoneal lavage, 112 had a true-positive lavage. Resuscitation was successful in 137 patients and 134 of these(More)
Ten patients with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL) received bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) at 100 mg/M2 intravenously over 1 h. BrdU is incorporated into the DNA by S-phase cells and was detected by using a monoclonal anti-BrdU antibody in the bone marrow aspirate (BM) and biopsy specimens obtained at the end of the infusion. Additionally, BM was incubated in(More)
Programmed cell death (apoptosis) is a normal characteristic of cells with a limited life span like the enterocyte and the usual mode of death for proliferative crypt cells subjected to radiation or chemotherapy. The Bcl-2 proto-oncogene is considered a major regulator of apoptosis. We investigated the relationship of enterocyte apoptosis and Bcl-2(More)
