In man, chloramphenicol (CAP), induces two major haemotoxic effects. First, a reversible, dose-related reticulocytopenia and anaemia developing during treatment. Second, a non-dose-related aplastic anaemia (AA), developing weeks after treatment, is often irreversible and fatal. In previous studies, we developed a mouse model of the reversible(More)
Lipiodol is a frequently used contrast agent for lymphangiography and more recently has been used in the investigation of hepatoma. We describe the magnetic resonance characteristics of lipiodol using a Siemens 1.5 T Magnetom with reference to the appearance and behaviour of lipiodol in abdominal lymphadenopathy. The characteristics described differ from(More)
Chloramphenicol (CAP) is haemotoxic in man, inducing two forms of toxicity. First, a commonly-occurring, dose-related, reversible bone marrow depression, which develops during treatment. Second, a rarer aplastic anaemia (AA), developing after treatment, is irreversible, and often fatal. Thiamphenicol (TAP) was developed as a replacement for CAP; however,(More)
The accurate staging of bladder cancer by computed tomography (CT) can be hampered where a bowel loop lies in close proximity to a tumour and the resolution of the system is such that a clearly defined fat plane between tumour and bowel is not visible. This paper describes the use of post-micturition scanning in a case where bowel involvement by tumour was(More)
Subitizing is thought to be an important precursor to mathematical development in young children. However, evidence for this relationship is sparse. This study examined the relationship between subitizing range and mathematical performance in kindergarten-aged children. The large sample included typically-developing children from urban backgrounds. Findings(More)
The potential of the antibiotics chloramphenicol succinate (CAPS) and thiamphenicol (TAP) to induce aplastic anaemia in the female BALB/c mouse was investigated. CAPS was administered at 2000 mg/kg, and TAP at 850 mg/kg, daily by gavage, for 17 days. At 1, 13, 22, 41, 98 and 179 days after the final dose of each antibiotic, mice (n = 4 or 5) were sampled(More)
