OBJECTIVE Our prespecified dose-response analyses of A Very Early Rehabilitation Trial (AVERT) aim to provide practical guidance for clinicians on the timing, frequency, and amount of mobilization following acute stroke. METHODS Eligible patients were aged ≥18 years, had confirmed first (or recurrent) stroke, and were admitted to a stroke unit within 24(More)
Forty seven children aged between seven and ten years who were born at 28 weeks gestation or less were followed up and assessed using psychometric tests, questionnaires and a parental interview. Birth and post-birth medical details were also collected. A control group of 47 normal gestation/birth weight children, matched with the children in the low(More)
Giardia intestinalis is a primitive microaerophilic protozoan parasite which colonises the upper intestine of humans. Despite the evolutionary and medical significance of this organism, its physiology is very poorly understood. In this study we have used a novel flow cytometric technique to make quantitative measurements of the electrical potential across(More)
Giardia intestinalis and Hexamita inflata are microaerophilic protozoa which rely on fermentative metabolism for energy generation. These organisms have developed a number of antioxidant defence strategies to cope with elevated O(2) tensions which are inimical to survival. In this study, the ability of pyruvate, a central component of their energy(More)
Cosmic strings can give rise to a large variety of interesting astrophysical phenomena. Among them, powerful bursts of gravitational waves (GWs) produced by cusps are a promising observational signature. In this Letter we present a search for GWs from cosmic string cusps in data collected by the LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave detectors between 2005 and(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic techniques are increasingly being utilized to diagnose and successfully manage intestinal obstruction. CASE REPORT We describe a patient who presented with intestinal obstruction following a recent abdominal hysterectomy. The obstruction was caused by entrapment of a segment of small bowel containing a Meckel's diverticulum within(More)
Between January, 1969, and May, 1974, 11 of 1208 low-birth-weight infants had early onset group-B streptococcal septicaemia. All 11 infants were of less than 35 weeks gestational age and 9 presented with the clinical and radiological signs of idiopathic respiratory distress syndrome. 10 died. Antibotics were given to 3 infants only, but not before the age(More)
