MCP-1 (monocyte chemotactic protein-1) is a CC chemokine that is induced by receptor activator of NFkappaB ligand (RANKL) in human osteoclasts. In the absence of RANKL, treatment of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells with macrophage colony-stimulating factor and MCP-1 resulted in tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP)-positive multinuclear cells(More)
We studied 107 patients aged over 65 years undergoing urgent or emergency laparotomy. Aspects of preoperative assessment, perioperative management and postoperative care were analysed by multiple logistic regression to determine the factors that predicted hospital survival. We determined which factors influenced anaesthetists' prediction that patients would(More)
We studied the impact of introducing percutaneous tracheostomy to our intensive care unit on the incidence and timing of tracheostomy and on the implications for surgical training. The proportion of patients receiving intensive care who underwent tracheostomy doubled from a median of 8.5% to 16.8% (p < 0.01) following the introduction of the percutaneous(More)
Burkholderia pseudomallei is the causative agent of melioidosis, a potentially fatal disease that is endemic to Northern Australia and Southeast Asia and is acquired from soil or water. Adherence of B. pseudomallei 08 to cultured cells increases dramatically following prior growth at 30 degrees C or less compared to that following prior growth at 37 degrees(More)
A 70-year-old man sustained a severe head injury following a fall downstairs, which resulted in him being found in a head down position. In the accident and emergency department he was noted to have subarachnoid air on a lateral cervical spine radiograph. This drew attention to the presence of fractures in the middle cranial fossa and nitrous oxide was(More)
Kupffer and endothelial cells of rat liver were purified by recirculating collagenase perfusion, metrizamide gradient, and counterflow elutriation. Every step of the isolation procedure was followed by light microscopy and histochemistry. The final fractions of purified sinusoidal cells were examined in their isolated state by transmission and scanning(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare visible and occult blood contamination of 50 laryngeal mask airways and 50 tracheal tubes following routine anaesthesia for procedures not involving the oropharyngeal or nasal cavities. All airway devices were examined visually for the presence of blood before washing in 100 ml of water. A semiquantitative dipstick(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this review is to draw together a collection of uncommon complications of central neural block that affect the cranial nerves. There have been a small number of case reports, some of which have included a possible mechanism of the nerve dysfunction, but there is no prior review that collected them together and(More)
To examine gene-expression patterning in late-stage breast cancer biopsies, we used a microdissection technique to separate tumor from the surrounding breast tissue or stroma. A DD-PCR protocol was then used to amplify expressed products, which were resolved using PAGE and used as probe to hybridize with representative human arrays and cDNA libraries. The(More)
