Magnetic resonance imaging of disseminated bone marrow disease in patients treated for malignancy.

Skeletal radiology

Hanna SL, Fletcher BD, Fairclough DL, Jenkins JH, Le AH.
PMID: 2020867
Skeletal Radiol. 1991;20(2):79-84. doi: 10.1007/BF00193815.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sensitive method for the diagnosis of bone marrow abnormalities, but its usefulness in detecting active disseminated cancer in this tissue in treated patients has not been determined. We therefore examined 14 children who...

Role of the Staphylococcus epidermidis slime layer in experimental tunnel tract infections.

Infection and immunity

Patrick CC, Plaunt MR, Hetherington SV, May SM.
PMID: 1548062
Infect Immun. 1992 Apr;60(4):1363-7. doi: 10.1128/iai.60.4.1363-1367.1992.
Free PMC Article

An experimental animal model was used to assess the slime layer of Staphylococcus epidermidis as a pathogenic factor in tunnel tract infections. Mice were inoculated with high-slime-producing or non-slime-producing strains of S. epidermidis, either along the length of a...

Bone marrow transplantation for patients with Fanconi anemia: a study of 24 cases from a single institution.

Bone marrow transplantation

Zanis-Neto J, Ribeiro RC, Medeiros C, Andrade RJ, Ogasawara V, Hüsh M, Magdalena N, Friedrich ML, Bitencourt MA, Bonfim C.
PMID: 7773221
Bone Marrow Transplant. 1995 Feb;15(2):293-8.

Although bone marrow transplantation (BMT) can eliminate the hematologic manifestations of Fanconi anemia (FA), patients are unusually susceptible to complications associated with the use of cyclophosphamide (CY) in the conditioning regimen. To investigate modifications of the conditioning regimen, we...

Aluminum toxicity following intravesical alum irrigation for hemorrhagic cystitis.

Medical and pediatric oncology

Kanwar VS, Jenkins JJ, Mandrell BN, Furman WL.
PMID: 8614395
Med Pediatr Oncol. 1996 Jul;27(1):64-7. doi: 10.1002/(SICI)1096-911X(199607)27:1<64::AID-MPO13>3.0.CO;2-5.

Mental status changes in an immunosuppressed child can be due to a variety of causes; aluminum toxicity is rarely considered. We report a teenage girl with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed mental status changes, speech disturbance, coarse tremor, and...

Identification of MHC class II-associated peptides that promote the presentation of toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 to T cells.

Journal of immunology (Baltimore, Md. : 1950)

Hogan RJ, VanBeek J, Broussard DR, Surman SL, Woodland DL.
PMID: 11359802
J Immunol. 2001 Jun 01;166(11):6514-22. doi: 10.4049/jimmunol.166.11.6514.

Previous studies have shown that the DM-deficient cell line, T2-I-A(b), is very inefficient at presenting toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST-1) to T cells, suggesting that I-A(b)-associated peptides play an essential role in the presentation of this superantigen. Consistent...

PMID: 11013904
Oncol Nurs Forum. 2000 Sep;27(8):1233-43.

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: To describe parental decision making about treatment options for children with cancer and determine the feasibility of a similar but larger international study.DESIGN: Exploratory.SETTINGS: A pediatric catastrophic illness research hospital in the United States and children's hospitals in...

Is clinical relevance sometimes lost in summative scores?.

Western journal of nursing research

Hinds PS, Schum L, Srivastava DK.
PMID: 12035909
West J Nurs Res. 2002 Jun;24(4):345-53. doi: 10.1177/01945902024004004.

It is possible to have a reliable and valid measure of a clinical phenomenon but to score the measure in a way that inaccurately represents the clinical meaning of the measured phenomenon. The purpose of this article is to...

Tamoxifen and carboplatin for children with low-grade gliomas: a pilot study at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Journal of pediatric hematology/oncology

Walter AW, Gajjar A, Reardon DA, Thompson SJ, Langston JW, Jones-Wallace D, Kun LE, Heideman RL.

PURPOSE: The authors conducted a single-arm, prospective study using tamoxifen and carboplatin for the treatment of children with progressive or symptomatic low-grade gliomas.PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fourteen children with consecutively diagnosed cases of low-grade glioma were enrolled in this Study;...

Lactic acidosis: a metabolic complication of hematologic malignancies: case report and review of the literature.


Sillos EM, Shenep JL, Burghen GA, Pui CH, Behm FG, Sandlund JT.
PMID: 11745277
Cancer. 2001 Nov 01;92(9):2237-46. doi: 10.1002/1097-0142(20011101)92:9<2237::aid-cncr1569>;2-9.

BACKGROUND: Lactic acidosis (LA) associated with hematologic malignancies is rare, ominous, and generally occurs in adults. Its pathogenesis is poorly understood.METHODS: The authors present one case of childhood lymphoma and two cases of childhood leukemia associated with LA, and...

Complications of limb-sparing procedures using endoprosthetic replacements about the knee for pediatric skeletal sarcomas.

Pediatric radiology

Kaste SC, Neel MN, Rao BN, Thompson VF, Pratt CB.
PMID: 11214687
Pediatr Radiol. 2001 Feb;31(2):62-71. doi: 10.1007/s002470000374.

Ninety-five percent of bone tumors are now managed with limb-sparing techniques. For pediatric patients with bone cancer, such limb reconstruction techniques often involve the placement of large endoprosthetic devices with the goal of improving survivors' quality of life. Nevertheless,...
