Equine plasma and urine samples were analyzed by using a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and particle concentration fluorescence assay (PCFIA). Although ELISA and PCFIA were rapid, simple and sensitive for the screening of furosemide, they did not give reproducible quantitative results. The HPLC(More)
A five-year experience of a breast cancer screening clinic in a Scottish urban area is reported. During this period 28 per cent of the female population aged 25 to 70 years was screened by clinical examination alone. The pick-up rate for cancers was 7.8 per 1,000 'well' women examined, and 21 per cent of all patients with cancer were under 40 years old.(More)
Lawnmower injuries to the digits are becoming increasingly common and are often complex in nature with multiple levels of injury. The management of these injuries as with that of other hand injuries is often tailored to the individual patient considering factors such as occupation and hobbies with the ultimate goal of restoration of function and a sensate(More)
A case of acute mucosal ulceration of the entire small intestine accompanied by skin rash, hepatitis and marrow suppression is reported. Recovery was complicated by a severe protein losing enteropathy and small intestinal strictures and the patient died post-operatively of a pulmonary embolism. The aetiology remains unknown.
BACKGROUND In the UK, non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) that are incompletely excised, recurrent or in sites high risk for incomplete excision are often offered Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). Variations in waiting times and geographical access to MMS affect patient preference for other treatments. Our unit offers excision of such lesions under complete(More)
A high performance liquid chromatographic method is described for the simultaneous determination of furosemide and bumetanide in horse plasma. The C8 (3 microns) reversed phase column (4.8 x 150 mm) provided clear separation of furosemide and bumetanide with other components present in the horse plasma. The detection limit for both the drugs was 10 ng/mL.(More)
