strata. Accordingly, multiple factors of biological relevance are more likely to provide an accurate system of defining risk groups. We have demonstrated this by combining MYC and TrkC mRNA expression (Fig. 1). The group with low MYC and high TrkC mRNA expression had a 100% 5-year progression-free survival outcome after a median follow-up time of 55 months (range, 1591 months). Notably, three patients in this group were infants who did not receive radiotherapy.[8] Although the number of patients is too small to draw firm conclusions, it is conceivable that for this age group, where the neu-rotoxic consequences of radiation therapy are greatest, a good-outcome group can be identified by biological factors and then treated using chemotherapy alone. The prognostic model using MYC and TrkC mRNA expression was superior to known clinical factors in identifying a good-outcome group of patients.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
