We present a case of cerebral fat embolism (CFE) that demonstrated evidence of diffuse white matter cytotoxic edema on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, in addition to punctate hyperintensities on T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted imaging. The case suggests that CFE represents a combination of occlusive arteriolar disease and secondary(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) as an alternative source of endomysial antigen (EmAg) and to assess their suitability for the detection of endomysial antibodies (EmA) in coeliac disease (CD). METHODS HUVEC were reacted on glass slides with patient sera and examined by fluorescent microscopy. Flow cytometry was used to(More)

The pharmacokinetic disposition of D-penicillamine and its major metabolites, penicillamine cysteine disulfide ( PSSC ) and penicillamine disulfide ( PSSP ) has been studied in eight patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Plasma concentrations of D-penicillamine, PSSP and PSSC displayed similar characteristics in terms of times to maximum concentrations and(More)
The effect on gastric emptying of the administration of oral controlled-release morphine 20 mg and intramuscular morphine 10 mg is compared. Gastric emptying was estimated by the measurement of paracetamol absorption. Statistically significant differences exist between the two treatments. There is slight inhibition of gastric emptying with the oral(More)
Echocardiographic (echo) and blood pressure (BP) reference values may help identify athletes at cardiovascular risk, yet benchmarks are inadequate for collegiate American-style football (ASF) players. Our purpose was to describe echo characteristics and BP values in collegiate ASF athletes compared with normal. First-year players (n = 80, age = 18 ± 1(More)
