Recently, M.C. King, a leading investigator of the identification of BRCA1 and 2 genes, at a provocative keynote lecture, while receiving the 2014 Lasker award, addressed the proposal for a population-wide BRCA testing [ 36 ]. Despite the significant controversies, risks and problems associated with such a public health strategy, an extensive discussion was kicked off due to that proposal. An important argument is the fact that approximately one-fourth of mutation carriers have no relevant family history, thus having no possibility of being warned that they are

possible interpatient variability of absolute CTPPs, encouraging the use of relative CTPPs instead. 21 , 22
The above arguments prompted us to focus on analyzing relative CTPPs of the infarct core, with the full knowledge that there might currently be no point of reference to compare our results directly. We found additional reasoning for an infarct-core approach in the fact that our attempts at free-hand whole-infarct designation with image segmentation to eliminate structures that were irrelevant for CTP ( e.g ., large vessels and sulci) proved futile in many cases

. Therefore, cardiac sparing afforded by V-DIBH technique is likely to be an underestimation of the actual sparing effect. This can be regarded as a supporting argument for the confirmation of our study hypothesis. The inter-observer (intra-approach) variation of cardiac contouring was comparable between the FB and V-DIBH scans as demonstrated by similar relative standard deviation of around 15%. Consequently, the impact of contouring variation on uncertainties of the DVH parameters was similar for both simulation approaches, making our results clinically relevant.

as arginine, and molecular oxygen [ 27 ]. Further, this free-radical gas molecule is produced in vitro by the oxidation HU by heme groups [ 28 ]. Significant increase in NO-derived species after an oral dose of HU indicates NO release from HU in vivo [ 29 ]. These observations provide a strong argument for the participation of NO in the mechanism of HbF induction by HU [ 30 ]. Further, NO can promote the modification of cysteine 93 in the hemoglobin b-chain, by nitrosation [ 31 ] or transnitrosation reactions, to form glutathionyl hemoglobin [ 32 ], which inhibits
