PURPOSE We reviewed the presentation and clinical findings in an unusual scrotal mass seen in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS This review involves a detailed description of 2 cases of splenogonadal fusion, and a complete survey and assessment of the published literature on this subject. RESULTS A detailed assessment of 137 cases (135 previously(More)
This paper reports the effect of precursor concentration, growth temperature, and growth time on the size and density of ZnO nanowire arrays (ZNAs). The well-aligned ZNAs were grown on indium tin oxide substrate using a facile chemical bath deposition method. The results showed that the ZnO nanowires could be tailored to the desired sizes with a simple(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the radiation dose and response in terms of local-regional progression-free survival (LRPFS) and overall survival (OS) of patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) undergoing concurrent chemotherapy and thoracic three-dimensional radiotherapy. In all, we enrolled 201 patients with stage IV NSCLC in(More)
The role of chemotherapy given concurrently with thoracic three-dimensional radiotherapy for stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is not well defined. We performed this study to investigate overall survival and toxicity in patients with stage IV NSCLC treated with this modality. From 2003 to 2010, 201 patients were enrolled in this study. All(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of thoracic three-dimensional radiotherapy on the prognosis for stage IV non-small-cell lung cancer is unclear. This study is to investigate survival outcomes and prognosis in patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with thoracic three-dimensional radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy. METHODS Ninety three(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the efficacy of three-dimensional radiotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with bone metastases. METHODS Clinical data for 95 NSCLC patients with bone metastases were collected and prognostic factors were analyzed. All patients received radiation to their thoracic primary tumor and ≥2 cycles of chemotherapy. (More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective multi-institutional phase 2 study was to investigate disease control, survival outcomes, and toxicity after thoracic three-dimensional radiation therapy (3D-RT) with concurrent chemotherapy for newly diagnosed stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Eligible patients were 18 to 80 years of(More)
Large scale, cost-effective processing of metal oxide thin films is critical for the fabrication of many novel thin film electronics. To date, however, most of the reported solution-based techniques require either extended thermal anneals or additional synthetic steps. Here we report mist chemical vapor deposition as a solution-based, readily scalable, and(More)
The photoluminescence (PL) spectra and UV-Visible absorption spectra of three novel fluorene derivatives solution containing different triphenylamine (TPA) and tetraphenyl-benzene (TPB) groups were systematically investigated. The PL spectra of the acetone/water solution were tested to analyze the capability of suppression concentration quenching (SCQ). The(More)
