The aim of this research was to investigate the prevalence of disability in a total population-based sample aged 70 years and over, the social handicap resulting from the disability and the diseases and impairments contributing to disability in the most disabled subjects. From the initial sample of 856 subjects, 782 (91.4%) participated. Disability in the(More)
BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)-associated cancer that is the fifth most common cancer in Malaysia. Early and accurate diagnoses are critical for patient prognosis. Unfortunately, early detection of NPC is still a challenge and the cost of more accurate imaging protocols is prohibitive in developing countries like(More)
Tracheal stenosis is a known complication of prolonged intubation. It is difficult to treat and traditional surgical approach is associated with significant risk and complications. Recurrent stenosis due to granulation tissue necessitates repeated procedures. We describe a case of short web-like tracheal stenosis (concentric membranous stenosis less than 1(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the antibacterial and antifungal properties of human cerumen by studying its effect on the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Esherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cerumen samples were collected from 75 normal, healthy subjects aged from seven to 80 years, without ear pathology, who attended(More)
ion, as used in the context of the analysis described in the THC Abstraction AMR (CRWMS M&O 2000c), refers to an extraction of essential data or information from the process level model. The abstraction analysis reproduces and bounds the results of the underlying detailed process-level model. The DS THC process model developed in the THC Process AMR (CRWMS(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an epithelial squamous cell carcinoma on the mucosal lining of the nasopharynx. The etiology of NPC remains elusive despite many reported studies. Most studies employ a single platform approach, neglecting the cumulative influence of both the genome and transcriptome toward NPC development. We aim to employ an integrated(More)
The aim of the study was to examine and analyze the epidemiology and outcome of treatment for paediatric acquired subglottic stenosis treated with endoscopic bougie dilatation and topical mitomycin C. There were 15 patients identified from 2008 until 2013. All of them had acquired subglottic stenosis due to history of intubation. Majority of the patients(More)
In this study, we first performed whole exome sequencing of DNA from 10 untreated and clinically annotated fresh frozen nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) biopsies and matched bloods to identify somatically mutated genes that may be amenable to targeted therapeutic strategies. We identified a total of 323 mutations which were either non-synonymous (n = 238) or(More)
