It is rare for the NEJM to carry a retrospective study from a single institution that is not a randomized study. This review looks at the outcome of 184 patients with metastatic testicular cancer. Dr. Einhorn and colleagues demonstrated that the disease is potentially curable with a high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant using cells harvested from the patient before the initial chemotherapy infusion.

These robocalls by Sam Brownback seem to me to be an exceptionally bad strategy. First, doesn't every single person in America hate robo-calls. I know I do - I ‘ve been getting robocalls for more than 3 years because one of my old roommates supposedly owed some money to some company. I delete the message or hang up after three words.
