Patients with breast or prostate cancer routinely referred for bone scintigraphy were evaluated for the presence of skeletal pain, as determined by a self administered questionnaire. Pain was a common finding, whether or not metastatic disease was present, and occurred in over half of patients. Although most patients with bone metastases did report bone(More)
We studied the epidemiology of physiolysis of the hip (or slipped capital femoral epiphysis) between 1946 and 1992 in 175 patients from a well-defined population. The incidence of physiolysis of the hip was calculated using the attack rate method, i.e., the sum of the annual incidences in each 1-year group. The risk of developing physiolysis was 1:998 for(More)
Several studies have implicated the tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) locus within the 11p15 region in susceptibility to manic depressive illness (MDI). This possibility was further investigated by both parametric (lod score) and nonparametric (affected-pedigree-member and a case-control study) methods of analysis in 11 French MDI families and in a sample of 200(More)
Gyrinid beetles are common in ponds and lakes in Sweden, where they aggregate in open areas of the surface. Gyrinid beetles have pygidial glands which produce compounds rendering them unpalatable to fish. This study examines whether the pygidial secretion can be used for alarm purposes in addition to other functions. Experiments showed that gyrinid beetles(More)
This particular ailment has many designations in the literature but none is quite adequate. Here we use the terminology slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). The anatomy of the proximal femur in all mammals reflects their growth and function. The main forces acting on the head are perpendicular to the growth plate. The thick tear-proof(More)
