The effects of dietary supplementation with marine oils on vascular reactivity in human forearm resistance arteries were studied. Healthy male adults (six to nine subjects per group) were given either maxEPA capsules (content: eicosapentaenoic acid, 0.178 g/g; docosahexaenoic acid, 0.116 g/g) at doses of 20, 10, or 5 g/day or placebo capsules at 20 g/day(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In Australia, a policy of deferring donors who have lived in the UK for longer than 6 months between 1980 and 1996 has been instituted to reduce the theoretical risk of transmitting variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) through the blood supply. The objective of this report was to refine estimates of the possible risks and(More)
We report the results from 57 Australian diagnostic laboratories testing two external quality assessment panels using either the Roche Amplicor Chlamydia trachomatis test (R-PCR) or the Abbott LCx Chlamydia trachomatis assay (A-ligase chain reaction [LCR]). Panel samples were either normal urine spiked with Chlamydia trachomatis antigen or clinical urine(More)
BACKGROUND Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis is a rare fibrosing condition that occurs in patients with renal insufficiency. While its histologic characteristics have been well described, the etiology and pathogenesis have not been fully characterized. Several recent studies support the theory that gadolinium-based contrast agents play a causative role in the(More)
BACKGROUND This is the seventh in a series of papers reporting Sustainability in Health care by Allocating Resources Effectively (SHARE) in a local healthcare setting. The SHARE Program was a systematic, integrated, evidence-based program for resource allocation within a large Australian health service. It aimed to facilitate proactive use of evidence from(More)
We describe a premature neonate who was born with pancytopenia and a single subcutaneous nodule on her right lower extremity. A biopsy specimen from the nodule demonstrated a dense infiltrate of pleomorphic mononuclear cells that extended throughout the dermis and into the subcutaneous tissue. Immunohistochemical stains and bone marrow examination confirmed(More)
OBJECTIVE Dietary supplementation with marine oils attenuates the responses to noradrenaline and angiotensin II in human forearm resistance arteries. The mechanisms underlying these effects were the subject of the present study. METHODS Twenty-two normal male adults were allocated to one of three groups. The first group (n = 11) received 10 g/day marine(More)
This study determined the proficiencies of laboratories measuring human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) viral loads and the accuracies of two assays used for HIV-1 viral load measurement in Australia and investigated the variability of the new versions of these assays. Quality assessment program panels containing (i) dilutions of HIV-1 subtype B, (ii)(More)
Frauen mit Hirsutismus zeigen ein männliches Verteilungsmuster der Terminalhaare. Der Hirsutismus tritt androgenabhängig auf. Zugrunde liegen können ihm sowohl ein erkrankungsbedingt erhöhter Androgenspiegel als auch eine erhöhte Ansprechbarkeit der Androgenrezeptoren am Haarfollikel. Nach Ursachenklärung kann die medikamentöse Therapie durch Verfahren zur(More)
