The principle of the method is the following: an intestinal homogenate is incubated with the appropriate disaccharide. The disaccharidase activity is then interrupted by the addition of TRIS, and the glucose liberated is measured with a glucose oxidase(More)
The p63 gene encodes at least six different proteins with homology to the tumour suppressor protein p53 and the related p53 family member p73. So far, there have been limited data concerning the expression patterns of individual p63 proteins, due to a lack of reagents that distinguish between the different isoforms. Three antibodies have been produced(More)
Nine malignant salivary gland tumours in children, reported to the Swedish Cancer Registry between 1958 to 1980, are reviewed. All tumours appeared in the parotid gland. Five cases were muco-epidermoid carcinoma of low-grade malignancy. All patients but one were treated with surgery. The postoperative follow-up period is 1 to 21 years. Three children have(More)
Functional septoplasty was performed upon 63 patients to relief nasal obstruction due to septal deviation. The effect of the operation on pre-operative nasal airway resistance was assessed by anterior rhinomanometry at three months (63 patients) and 10 years (35 patients), post-operatively. The operation reduced nasal airway resistance in both the(More)
