Intracranial volume comparisons of patients with craniosynostosis and normal have been contrary to expectations, leading to questioning of the validity of the current normal reference material. Computed tomography-determined intracranial volume is presented for a white normal population. Specifically, intracranial volumes for 157 subjects (82 female and 75(More)
OBJECTIVE There are a significant number of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) of North Indian or Pakistani origin (Asian) now living in the UK. RA has been poorly studied in this racial group. The aim of this study was to compare RA in this Asian group with RA in the indigenous northern European (European) population. It was hypothesized that these(More)
AIMS To determine whether polymorphisms of the genes encoding donor or recipient interleukin 1alpha (IL-1alpha), tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha), or IL-4 have any impact on the incidence of acute rejection after renal transplantation. METHODS All donors and recipients were genotyped for three polymorphisms in the three cytokine genes: IL1A -889,(More)
Elevated plasma levels of beta 2 microglobulin have been described in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) but their relationship to disease activity is unclear. In patients treated for 6 months with auranofin (AF) there was a significant fall (p less than 0.05) in beta 2M levels pari passu with improvement in disease activity as measured by a fall in C-reactive(More)
Although the need to prevent the secondary effects of craniosynostosis on the central nervous system is fundamental to the practice of craniofacial surgery, the detailed structural anatomy of the central nervous system in the syndromal craniosynostoses has become the subject of recent interest. A clinical and radiographic review of a population of 59(More)
The clinical, radiological and pathological features of two cases of intraventricular meningioma in a 9-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl are reported. Presenting features included headache, vomiting and somnolence with no localizing neurological signs on physical examination. Neither patient showed evidence of neurofibromatosis. CT scans were helpful in(More)
Simultaneous clinical, scintigraphic, and macroradiographic assessments were carried out on 32 patients with hand osteoarthritis and the results at entry and one year reported. The presence and growth of osteophyte correlated with symptoms and a positive scan. The scan did not detect the radiographic features of juxta-articular radiolucencies, subchondral(More)
Twenty-four patients with classical or definite rheumatoid arthritis participated in a 4-week double-blind crossover study to compare the effectiveness of two different dosage regimens of pirazolac. Patients were allocated at random to receive 2-weeks' treatment with either 300 mg pirazolac in the morning and 600 mg at night or 450 mg pirazolac given(More)
AIMS To determine whether measurement of soluble CD30 (sCD30) levels predicts for early rejection in a cohort of first deceased kidney transplant recipients. METHODS Pre-transplant serum samples were analysed for sCD30 levels using a commercial ELISA kit (Biotest). A 100 U/ml cut-off for "high sCD30" was applied. Clinical outcome parameters were(More)
