The Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptom (DRESS) is a severe adverse drug-induced reaction. Diagnosing DRESS is challenging due to the diversity of cutaneous eruption and organs involved. We used the RegiSCAR scoring system that grades DRESS cases as "no," "possible," "probable," or "definite" to classify cases reported in the literature. We(More)
To identify and measure the incidence of adverse effects of the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor enalapril 13,713 patients were studied for one year by prescription-event monitoring. Precise information about the duration of treatment was available for 12,543 patients. The frequency of many events was calculated, including dizziness (483 patients;(More)
Thirty-three acromegalic patients were treated with radiotherapy and followed up for at least 3 years (mean 6 years, range 3 to 12). Seventeen had not had previous pituitary ablative therapy and 16 had. The mean GH level for these two groups before radiotherapy was comparable at 98 and 119 mIU/l. The observed frequency of reaching less than 10 mIU/l was 53%(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic corticosteroids are effective in ulcerative colitis but commonly cause side effects. AIM To compare the safety and efficacy of a sparingly absorbed formulation of prednisolone metasulfobenzoate (Predocol) with a conventional tapering course of oral prednisolone. METHOD In a double-blind randomized study, 59 active ulcerative colitis(More)
1. It has been suggested that poor metabolisers of debrisoquine are at reduced risk of developing lung cancer from smoking cigarettes. This has been investigated in 82 patients with established cancer of the lung. 2. The frequency of poor metaboliser subjects was not different from that in the normal population. 3. There was no tendency for subjects with(More)
21 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus induced by long-term treatment with hydralazine were investigated to see whether susceptibility to this syndrome was associated with deficiency of the classical pathway complement protein, C4. 16 of 21 (76%) patients had one or more C4 null (ie, non-productive) alleles compared with 35 of 82 normal subjects(More)
Quinidine and its diastereoisomer quinine were tested in vitro for their effect on the 4-hydroxylation of debrisoquine, the O-deethylation of phenacetin and the 1'-hydroxylation of bufuralol, by human liver microsomal samples; quinidine was studied for its effect on debrisoquine 4-hydroxylation in vivo. Quinidine was a potent inhibitor of the(More)
I survey termination analysis of logic programs with particular attention to methods for automatically proving termination. I introduce the central concepts of automatic termination analysis and give an overview of the research on other types of termination analysis. I describe the main approaches covered in the literature and compare the accuracy and(More)
