PURPOSE: To compare the efficacy and tolerability of tamoxifen with that of letrozole, an oral aromatase inhibitor, with tamoxifen as first-line therapy in postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Nine hundred seven patients were randomly assigned letrozole 2.5 mg once daily (453 patients) or tamoxifen 20 mg once daily (454 patients). Patients had estrogen receptor– and/or progesterone receptor–positive tumors, or both receptors were unknown. Recurrence during adju...

Abstract Objectives Swimmers must enter a marshalling call-room 20 min prior to racing, which results in some swimmers completing their warm-up 45 min pre-race. Since a recovery period longer than 15–20 min may prove problematic, this study examined 200 m freestyle performance after a 20 and 45 min post-warm-up recovery period. Design Eight international swimmers completed this randomised and counter-balanced study. Methods After a standardised warm-up, swimmers rested for either 20 (20 m...

Despite a significant growth in food production over the past half-century, one of the most important challenges facing society today is how to feed an expected population of some nine billion by the middle of the 20th century. To meet the expected demand for food without significant increases in prices, it has been estimated that we need to produce 70-100 per cent more food, in light of the growing impacts of climate change, concerns over energy security, regional dietary shifts and the Millenn...

Context and objective Approximately 5-10% of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients carry MYC gene translocations ( MYC- translocation+) with a poor prognosis after standard chemotherapy. MYC -translocation+ DLBCL patients carrying BCL2 translocations ( MYC +/ BCL2 + double-hit lymphoma) have a worse survival. The efficacy of adjuvant radiotherapy in this setting is unknown. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of radiotherapy as a part of the therapeutic regimen for pat...

e19042 Background: CACS is a problematic clinical syndrome, difficult to objectively define. A consensus-derived, weight-based definition has been proposed. An observational study was analyzed to explore this definition’s utility in a cohort of patients with advanced NSCLC. Methods: Patients with stage IIIB or IV NSCLC completed up to four study visits over a 6 month period. Using the weight-based CACS definition (weight loss >5%, or weight loss >2% in individuals already showing depletion accor...

OBJECTIVES In Europe and elsewhere, health inequalities among HIV-positive individuals are of concern. We investigated late HIV diagnosis and late initiation of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) by educational level, a proxy of socioeconomic position. DESIGN AND METHODS We used data from nine HIV cohorts within COHERE in Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, collecting data on level of education in categories of the UNESCO/International Standard Classification of ...

Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants(NOAC) negate complex patient management issues, such as frequent blood sampling, diet restriction, and drug interactions, that had to be dealt with during the warfarinonly era. However, there is no definite tool tomonitor the anticoagulant effects of NOACs, although some patients suffer from bleeding complications related to exceedingly high blood concentrations of NOACs.

Abstract 2742 Molecular monitoring of BCR/ABL transcripts by real time quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) is an essential technique for clinical management of patients with BCR/ABL -positive CML and ALL. Though quantitative BCR/ABL assays are performed in hundreds of laboratories worldwide, results among these laboratories cannot be reliably compared due to heterogeneity in test methods, data analysis, reporting, and lack of quantitative standards. Recent efforts towards standardiz...

Congenital heart defects are among the most common congenital defects and contribute substantially to the mortality of newborns and young infants, in spite of well-developed medical and surgical treatments. It is estimated that the mortality of children with congenital heart defects in developing countries is as high as 20%, whereas the incidence of congenital heart defects is approximately 1/100 live births(1). Currently, there is an emphasis on early fetal screening for chromosomal abnormaliti...
