BACKGROUND There is an absence of population-based long-term studies on the risk of neurological sequelae in children born after in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). Our aim was to compare the frequency of such problems between IVF-born children and controls. METHODS We did a population-based retrospective cohort study in which we compared development of(More)
AIM Primary tumours in the central nervous system (CNS) are the second most common malignancy in childhood after leukaemia. Sweden has a high incidence and a high-survival rate in international comparative studies. This has raised the question about the type of tumours included in the Swedish Cancer registry. We therefore compared international data to the(More)
The naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by multiple developmental defects and cancer susceptibility, in particular to basal cell carcinomas (BCCs). Medulloblastomas, primitive neuroectodermal tumours (PNETs) arising in childhood, occur in about 3 – 5% of NBCCS patients and a subset of PNETs was(More)
IMPORTANCE Active perinatal care increases survival of extremely preterm infants; however, improved survival might be associated with increased disability among survivors. OBJECTIVE To determine neurodevelopmental outcome in extremely preterm children at 2.5 years (corrected age). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Population-based prospective cohort of(More)
The amount of water lost from the skin and the relation of the water loss to environmental factors, activity, body temperature, gestational age, nutritional status at birth and post-natal age were studied in full-term and pre-term newborn infants. The method we used was non-invasive and based on determination of the water vapour pressure gradient(More)
Lesions typical for osteochondrosis were found in the joint cartilage and metaphyseal growth plates of growing bulls, of which many showed clinical signs of so-called leg weakness. Of 48 bulls included in the investigation, 23 were on intensive feeding and they all were found to have osteochondrosis at several locations. Of the 25 bulls of lower intensity(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRalpha) expression is typical for a variety of brain tumours, while in normal adult brain PDGFRalpha expression is limited to a small number of neural progenitor cells. The molecular mechanisms responsible for the PDGFRalpha expression in tumours are not known, but in the absence of(More)
In order to investigate whether a change in skin blood flow is associated with changes in the evaporative loss of water from the skin of fullterm appropriate for gestational age infants, we measured the evaporation rate and skin blood flow in the body temperature range 36.6 to 37.2 degrees C. Fifteen healthy, fullterm newborn infants delivered by Caesarean(More)
The clinical and radiologic features of osteochondritis dissecans in the knee and hock joint of horses are described. The material includes 91 horses, of which 43 had the lesion in one or both knee joints, and 48 in one or both hock joints. It was found that osteochondritis dissecans of the knee joint was more common than the one in the hock joint in(More)
