The EU regulatory statute for the acute hazard identification of chemicals requires selection of the two most appropriate routes of administration. Testing employing the oral route is mandatory, whereas selection of the dermal or inhalation route requires expert judgement, i.e. considerations of structural alerts with regard to the inherent acute inhalation(More)
Animals may be responsible for an array of potentially lethal injuries. Blunt force injuries characteristically involve larger animals such as cattle or horses that may kick, crush, or trample a victim causing head and facial injuries. Farm workers in particular are at high risk of lethal injuries involving the head and torso. Significant blunt trauma may(More)
In addition to blunt and sharp trauma, animal-related fatalities may result from envenomation, poisoning, anaphylaxis, asphyxiation, and sepsis. Although the majority of envenomation deaths are caused by hornets, bees, and wasps, the mechanism of death is most often anaphylaxis. Envenomation resulting from the injection of a poison or toxin into a victim(More)
SARs may enable the evaluation of the toxic potential of chemicals by drawing conclusions from available data on structurally-related chemicals, thus reducing the need for further testing. The Advisory Committee on Existing Chemicals of Environmental Relevance (BUA) [1,2] of the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker [GDCh]) has compiled(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether paralogue ratio tests (PRT) using real-time PCR can accurately determine the DNA copy number (CN) using formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue. Histopathology diagnostic archives are an enormous resource of FFPE tissue, but extracted DNA is of poor quality and may be unsuitable for CN assessment,(More)
A minority of melanocytic lesions cannot confidently be classified as benign or malignant on histopathological examination, causing diagnostic uncertainty. DNA copy number changes can be used to distinguish nevi from melanoma, although the use of FFPE tissue can pose technical challenges. DNA copy number assays, called duplex ratio tests, have been(More)
Pleomorphic salivary adenomas (PAs) are the commonest benign tumours of glandular origin in the head and neck. Occasionally PAs undergo malignant transformation to carcinoma-ex-PA and can metastasise. More rarely they metastasise without malignant transformation of the primary tumour. We present a case of a benign pleomorphic salivary gland adenoma,(More)
Fournier gangrene represents a rare but progressive perineal infection that may result in rapid death. A 70-year-old man with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus and alcohol abuse is reported who was found unexpectedly dead. He had last been contacted the night before his death. At autopsy, the most striking finding was deep necrotic ulceration of the(More)
