Chemical and histochemical methods were used to compare the epithelial glycoproteins from formalin-fixed surgical specimens of normal human large intestine, colonic tumours, ulcerative colitis and diverticular disease. All the epithelial glycoproteins contained fucose, galactose, glucosamine, galactosamine and, in addition, sialic acids both with and(More)
Accepted 13 November 1989. Abstract A previous New Zealand case-control study of asthma deaths in the 5-45 year age group during 1981-3 found that prescription of fenoterol (by metered dose inhaler) was associated with an increased risk of death in patients with severe asthma. One major criticism ofthis study was that drug data for the cases and controls(More)
Procedures are described for the isolation and identification of epithelial glycoproteins from formalin fixed, paraffin embedded specimens of human large intestine. The side chain O-acetylation patterns of the sialic acids of these glycoproteins were surprisingly similar to those of purified glycoproteins prepared from epithelial cells obtained from the(More)
Trends in mortality from asthma in non-Maori New Zealanders aged 5 to 34 years were examined for the period 1908-1986. Two previously documented epidemics of death from asthma occurred in the 1960s and the late 1970s. These epidemics are most likely to have been due to changes in the management of asthma: the introduction of isoprenaline forte by metered(More)
Prolongation of the initial periodate oxidation step of the periodate-borohydride technique/potassium hydroxide/periodic acid-Schiff and periodic acid-Thionin Schiff/potassium hydroxide/periodic acid-Schiff sequences produced little or no change in the diagnostic staining for the potassium hydroxide/periodic acid-Schiff effect, exhibited by the colonic(More)
