Prostate cancer screening with DRE, TRUS, and PSA testing was offered to 2,400 randomly selected men 55-70 years old. Among 1,782 examined, 65 (3.6%) men with prostate cancer were diagnosed. The PSA results were correlated to the diagnosis, the men's age, and the prostate volume. Least square regression analysis was used to calculate the 95% upper(More)
Gm allotypes are genetic variants of the immunoglobulin heavy G chains (IGHG) of IgG molecules, coded from chromosome 14q32, characterized by differences in amino acid epitopes of the constant heavy G chains and inherited in the Mendelian manner. Gm allotypes have influence on IgG subclass levels, and serum Gm allotype levels have been given for different(More)
The serum hyper IgG of 76 JCA patients of different clinical subsets, 8 systemic, 37 polyarticular and 31 oligoarticular, were investigated by IgG subclass quantitation and Gm allotype determination. The well known increased serum IgG in JCA was confirmed as increased IgG1, IgG2 and IgG3 in the whole group. Investigating the clinical subsets IgG1 was(More)
A method for quantitation of Gm allotypes is described. Alternative Gm allotypes of the three IgG subclasses, IgG1, IgG2 and IgG3, were investigated for the six most common Caucasian Gm phenotypes. Quantitation of G1m(a), G1m(f) of IgG1, G2m(n) of IgG2 and G3m(b) of IgG3 was performed with specific monoclonal antisera and purified myeloma proteins of(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and safety of pravastatin, gemfibrozil, combined therapy, and placebo in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. PATIENTS AND METHODS At 5 centers in Sweden and 2 in Finland, 290 ambulatory patients were randomized to active treatment or placebo for 12 weeks following a single-blind placebo lead-in period. The study was(More)
Environmental factors, including viral infections, may explain an increasing and fluctuating incidence of childhood type 1 diabetes (T1D). Ljungan virus (LV) isolated from bank voles have been implicated, but it is unclear whether LV contributes to islet autoimmunity, progression to clinical onset, or both, of T1D. The aim was to test whether LV antibodies(More)
PURPOSE To study the effects of topical brimonidine tartrate 0.2%, an alpha(2)-agonist ocular hypotensive drug, on retinal capillary blood flow in patients with ocular hypertension. METHODS The study was a double-masked, randomized, placebo-controlled trial set in a tertiary eye center. Ocular hypertensive patients with repeatable intraocular pressures(More)
Primary patellar neoplasms are distinctly unusual. A rare case of patellar giant cell tumor which caused clinical, radiographic, and histologic confusion is described. The lesion progressed rapidly, underscoring the potential aggressive behavior of the tumor. Amputation is the preferred treatment. A review of the literature is also presented.
Pulmonary angiography (PA) for decades has been accepted as the gold standard for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE). Apprehensions that the procedure is expensive, invasive and thus associated with both fatal and non-fatal complications has more or less limited its use to patients presenting a non-diagnostic lung scan. However, this opinion(More)
