Combined modality therapy for localized Hodgkin's disease. A seven-year update of an early study


, : Combined modality therapy for localized Hodgkin's disease. A seven-year update of an early study. Oncology 32(5-6): 208-213

Some clinical trials have indicated that combination therapy with intensive radiation therapy followed by chemotherapy significantly prolongs the disease-free interval of patients with Hodgkin's disease confined to lymph nodes. The present report updates the results of a small previously published study of combined-modality treatment of stages I and II Hodgkin's disease. Although patients tested with radiation therapy followed by chemotherapy have the longest median complete remission duration, patients treated with radiation alone have a superior survival rate. Follow-up in this study ranges from 34 to 93 months after the completion of all therapy.

Objective: Long-term antidepressant drug exposure may regulate its target molecule - the serotonin transporter (SERT). This effect could be related to an individual's genotype for an SERT promoter polymorphism ( human serotonin transporter co...

We observed that the sequence of the central conserved domain of these vertebrate proteins shares characteristic features with histone H1 prote...
