From 1987 to 1989 a campaign to promote the early detection of cutaneous malignant melanoma was conducted in the areas of seven health authorities in England and Scotland (total population 3.6 million). Data were collected on 17,155 patients attending pigmented lesion clinics (PLCs) in each study area during the campaign. After a dramatic rise in PLC(More)

This report concerns a patient in whom extensive and debilitating skin changes developed secondary to hydroxyurea therapy. In addition to previously reported manifestations such as ichthyosis, a dermatomyositis-like eruption on the dorsal(More)
Chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood (CBDC) is an autoimmune, subepidermal bullous disease that, in the majority of patients, remits before the onset of puberty. The disease does not always pursue a benign course, however. We cared for a patient in whom the condition persisted well beyond puberty without clinical or immunologic remission.
The effect on the detection and characteristics of melanoma, resulting from the Cancer Research Campaign's health education programme to promote the early detection of melanoma in the general population, was studied from 1987 to 1989. The seven study areas in England and Scotland yield a target population of 3.6 million. Data were collected from local(More)

The normal control fibroblasts from the 6th to 13th passage (secretory phase) showed irregular or lobed nuclei with centrally(More)

This multicenter prospective potential living kidney donor cohort study investigated which sociodemographic and other factors predict progression to living kidney donation or donor withdrawal as little is known on this topic. Therefore, we examined data on individuals undergoing living donor assessment at seven hospitals in the United Kingdom. Multivariable(More)
