Psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and schizophrenia are leading causes of disability worldwide, and have a huge societal impact. However, despite the clear need for better therapies, and major advances in the understanding of the molecular basis of these disorders in recent years, efforts to discover and develop new drugs for(More)
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is an effective treatment for inflammatory sinus disease. The potential for major complications during FESS is high particularly under general anaesthesia. The most serious of these is injury to the eye leading to blindness. We looked at the feasibility of monitoring flash visual evoked potentials (VEP)(More)
We describe a series of four patients who presented with 'high globus pharyngeus', who all had an abnormally curled epiglottis tip touching and indenting the tongue base. The actual incidence of 'curling epiglottis', as well as the potential impact of this variation in persistent globus symptoms, is not known. We therefore describe for the first time a(More)
Cattle immunised with a POLYGEN-adjuvanted killed Neospora caninum tachyzoite preparation were previously shown to produce interferon (IFN)-gamma at levels similar to those of tachyzoite-infected cattle. In view of the critical role of IFN-gamma in resistance of mice to N. caninum infection, these results prompted us to test the POLYGEN-adjuvanted(More)
The sensation of a foreign body in the throat when swallowing is a common and very discomforting symptom for those who experience it. Common causes are gastroesophageal reflux disease and possibly upper oesophageal dysmotility. This complaint may be dismissed as psychogenic when a cause for the problem is not readily apparent. We present two cases in which(More)
Non-accidental injuries to the ear, nose and throat are inevitably difficult to detect because of their covert nature. A survey of 50 hospitals and all NSPCC child abuse units in England was carried out to determine the type of injuries that were inflicted to these regions in verified cases of abuse. The importance of detecting these injuries is emphasized(More)
the ultimate goal of any clinical programme treating infertility by means of in vitro fertilisation and embryo replacement is to maximise the number of patients who become pregnant in a treatment cycle. A 12% pregnancy rate was previously reported from this unit. Following the instigation of changes and further modifications, an overall success rate of 27%(More)
An association between non-suppurative otitis media (NSOM) and symptoms of dysequilibrium has been observed but not previously quantified in children (Gates, 1980; Busis, 1983; Blayney and Coleman, 1984). This study compared the incidence of balance related problems in 154 children with surgically proven glue ear and 51 children with normal ear function.(More)
