Observational and microbiological data were collected from the patients and environment of a male general surgical ward over a period of 27 months from January 1998. Isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from patients and environment were typed by antibiogram, bacteriophage and pulsed field gel electrophoresis of chromosomal DNA. In(More)
Urine cytology, plasma (P), and urinary (U) interleukin-2 (IL-2)* and IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) levels were evaluated as immunological monitoring techniques in 65 renal allograft recipients. Normal individuals showed normal urine cytology, IL-2(U) = 0, IL-2(P) = 0.4 +/- 0.1 ng/ml (mean +/- SEM) and IL-2R(P) = 318 +/- 26 U/ml. Stable transplants also showed(More)
We describe a young man who presented with a short history of painless haematuria. Subsequent investigations and biopsy of lesions found in his bladder at cystoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of primary lymphoma of the bladder. Computed tomography studies confirmed the disease was localised to his bladder. Unfortunately, the tumour was not eradicated by(More)
BACKGROUND Germline mutations within DNA-repair genes are implicated in susceptibility to multiple forms of cancer. For prostate cancer (PrCa), rare mutations in BRCA2 and BRCA1 give rise to moderately elevated risk, whereas two of B100 common, low-penetrance PrCa susceptibility variants identified so far by genome-wide association studies implicate RAD51B(More)
Metastatic non-colorectal cancer of the anal canal is a rare entity. To date, only four cases have been described in the literature. We present a 76-year-old man who was referred with an unusual perianal lesion. He had a history of renal cell carcinoma 7 years previously. Histologically, the lesion revealed clear cell carcinoma in keeping with metastasis.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of transurethral electrovaporization of the prostate (TUVP), using a grooved roller electrode, for the surgical treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). PATIENTS AND METHODS TUVP was carried out using a grooved roller electrode, pure-cutting diathermy and a standard irrigating resectoscope(More)
