Trained athletes frequently experience low levels of blood haemoglobin (13 to 14 g/100ml in men and 12 g/100ml in women) plus low haematocrit and low ferritin levels. These parameters define the concept of 'sports anaemia'. Low iron levels may be due to mechanical haemolysis, intestinal bleeding, haematuria, sweating, low iron intake or poor intestinal(More)
We investigated the association between the degree of lesion overlap with the corticospinal tract and walking performance before and after 4-weeks of partial body weight support (PBWS) treadmill training in 18 individuals (ten male, eight female) with a mean age 59 ± 13 years (mean ± SD), range 32–74 years, who were ambulant and 6 months from a subcortical(More)
In a 12-month cohort follow-up study of 2435 children vaccinated in 2007 by Statens Serum Institute BCG strain (BCG SSI, 17.8% had an adverse event (AE): erythema 12.4%, induration 12.2%, abscesses 2.5%, ulceration 0.9%, lymphadenitis 0.1%. The factors associated with a lower risk of AE were: age at vaccination <1 year compared to age >1 year (OR=0.35(More)
Angle-resolved low coherence interferometry (a/LCI) is an optical biopsy technique that allows for depth-resolved, label-free measurement of the average size and optical density of cell nuclei in epithelial tissue to assess the tissue health. a/LCI has previously been used clinically to identify the presence of dysplasia in Barrett's Esophagus patients(More)
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS To describe cases of fusidic acid-associated sideroblastic anaemia from the French Pharmacovigilance database. RESULTS Six cases of sideroblastic anaemia associated with oral fusidic acid treatment were retrieved. Four females and two males (mean age 65.3 yr) developed severe anaemia (mean haemoglobin level: 6.9 g/dL) within 32-190(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of peritoneal metastases from appendiceal and colon cancer with cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) shows great promise. Although long-term disease-free survival is achieved in some cases with this procedure, many patients have recurrence. Oncologists have treated such recurrences of appendiceal(More)
PURPOSE Use deformable registration to map more complex anatomies that include changes associated with both different body positions and breathing, and evaluate the resultant respiratory excursions for tumors and relevant organs at risk. METHODS Same-day exhale and inhale datasets from prone and supine 4D CT scans of lung cancer patients have been(More)
