The current article presents two studies that aimed to replicate DePrince and Freyd's (2001, 2004) studies demonstrating that high and low dissociators differentially recall neutral and trauma words under conditions of varying cognitive load. We did not find this effect. This lack of replication was apparent for both free recall and word recognition memory… (More)
Bronchoalveolar lavage was used to sample inflammatory cells from the lungs of 51 patients with cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis (CFA) (24 smokers, 12 ex-smokers, and 15 non-smokers). The smokers with CFA have been compared with 15 smoking control subjects in whom there was no radiographic abnormality or clinical evidence of chronic bronchitis.… (More)
alpha 1-antitrypsin (alpha 1-A.T.) phenotypes were determined in 55 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (R.A.), 33 patients with R.A. and either obstructive airways disease or recurrent chest infections, 49 patients with fibrosing alveolitis (F.A.), 22 patients with R.A. and F.A., and 200 healthy controls. A highly significant increase in the frequency of MZ… (More)
Serum angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) and lysozyme have been measured in 23 controls, 115 patients with sarcoidosis, and 64 with other chest diseases. Both enzymes were significantly raised in sarcoidosis. ACE was raised above the normal range in 21 of 72 (29%) patients with definite sarcoidosis and in 17 of 38 (45%) of those who were untreated and… (More)
Benign metastasising leiomyoma is a rare disease occurring predominantly in women of childbearing age and is hormonally influenced. The response of the disease to the luteinising hormone releasing hormone analogue goserelin is reported.
Low levels of plasma-25-hydroxy-vitamin-D (25-OHD) (less than 16 nmol/1) were found in 33% of a group of pregnant women studied in South London. Non-White women in the last 10 weeks of pregnancy had significantly reduced levels compared with non-pregnant controls (P less than 0.02). Plasma-25-OHD was unrelated to dietary vitamin-D intake, age, parity,… (More)
At bronchoscopic examination extensive areas of fibrinous slough covering bronchial mucosal inflammation and ulceration were seen in a case of progressive diffuse bronchopulmonary histoplasmosis. Rigid bronchoscopy was needed to obtain sufficient biopsy material for specific histological diagnosis.
An optical technique has been developed for mapping the size and shape of the thoracoabdominal wall and the change in its shape with breathing. A fixed pattern composed of stripes of light is projected on to both sides of the trunk. These stripes become distorted when viewed from in front and behind, forming contours over the trunk surface. The contours are… (More)
The prognostic implications of pulmonary hypertension in chronic lung disease, and the difficulty in establishing its severity without cardiac catheterisation, indicate the need for a reliable non-invasive method of assessing the pulmonary artery pressure. It is likely that the time taken by the right ventricle to generate a sufficiently high pressure to… (More)
