Radiofrequency ablation of bony metastatic disease


, : Radiofrequency ablation of bony metastatic disease. Clinical Radiology 59(9): 803-811

Image-guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation is an emerging alternative therapy for treatment of cancer in patients who can not undergo surgical resection. We have performed RF ablation on patients to locally treat and palliate painful osseous metastatic disease for several years. We present an overview of various applications of RF ablation for treating osseous metastatic disease.

Dobrzynski, J.K.; Sternlicht, M.L.; Farr, G.W., 1996: Newly-synthesized b-tubulin demonstrates domain-specific interactions with the cytosolic chaperonin. Tubulin folding requires two chaperone systems, i.e., the 900 kDa cytosolic chaperonin referred to as the TCP-1 complex or TRiC which facilitates folding of the a- and b-tubulin subunits and a ca. 180 kDa complex which facilitates further assembly...

Wine can contain trace amounts of ethyl carbamate (EC), a carcinogen formed when ethanol reacts with carbamyl compounds such as citrulline. EC is produced from arginine by lactic acid bacteria (LAB), e.g., Lactobacillus and Pediococcus. Although t...

A chiral, divergent synthesis of two carbafuranosylamines, 1 and 2, two carbapyranosylamines, 3 and 4, two carbafuranosylamino acids, 5 and 6, and two carbapyranosylamino acids, 7 and 8, has been achieved. Highlights of the procedure include the f...
