New published data show that bicalutamide (Casodex) 150mg plus radiotherapy significantly extends survival in men with locally advanced prostate cancer compared to radiotherapy alone
New data published in the February 2006 edition of the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI) confirm that bicalutamide 150mg improves the chance of survival by 35 per cent (hazard ratio = 0.65; 95% CI = 0.44 to 0.95, p = 0.03)1 in men with locally advanced prostate cancer (when the disease has spread into the capsule of the prostate or through the prostate into the surrounding tissue) when given bicalutamide 150mg as adjuvant to radiotherapy compared to radiotherapy alone. Bicalutamide 150mg is the only anti-androgen for which this has been shown.1
Also the data from the largest ever treatment study in prostate cancer show that in locally advanced disease, bicalutamide 150mg adjuvant to radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy reduces the risk of disease progression by 31 per cent (hazard ratio = 0.69; 95% CI = 0.58 to 0.82, p < 0.001) leading to a significant survival benefit of 35 per cent when used as adjuvant to radiotherapy.1, In addition, in men with locally advanced prostate cancer, when bicalutamide 150mg was given as monotherapy (alone) there was a 40 per cent reduction in risk, which extended survival free of progression by a median of 2.9 years, showing a trend towards improved survival.2

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
