BACKGROUND TO THE DEBATE An important mechanism for protecting human research participants is the prior approval of a clinical study by a research ethics board, known in the United States as an institutional review board (IRB). Traditionally, IRBs have been run by volunteer committees of scientists and clinicians working in the academic medical centers(More)
Air counts in seven mortuaries during necropsies revealed that providing care is taken with washing intestines and close dissection, bacterial numbers are often less than those found in an operating theatre, and relate more to the number of people and movement in the room than the work. The acknowledged hazard of work in the mortuary seems to depend more on(More)
Patients with proximal focal femoral deficiency or longitudinal deficiency affecting the femur were selected from a large regional center. Twenty-eight such patients were identified and were divided into two groups depending on how their condition was managed. Group 1 had opted for the surgical approach of ankle disarticulation (Syme amputation) and the(More)
The noninvasive detection of inhomogeneities in biological tissues is studies using phantoms. The proposed reflectance systems consist of a scanning probe with four units. Each unit equipped with a photon injection port, and these ports are arranged in a straight line fashion to collect the backscattered photons from different depths. The inhomogeneities(More)
Screening for the presence of anabolic growth promoters in urine samples from cattle grown for meat production can be performed by (semi)quantitative methods such as immuno-, receptor- or cell-based assays or by quantitative methods with mass spectrometric detection which can also include confirmation of compounds. In this study conventional immunoassays(More)
