Death from haemorrhage is described in a 21-hour-old baby boy with acute gastric ulceration.

A year latter when being treated for empyema, she was found to have common variable(More)

OBJECTIVES Induction chemotherapy (IC) followed by chemoradiation (CRT) for locally advanced squamous cell head and neck cancer (SCCHN) remains controversial in the absence of clear evidence to define its role. As part of a prospective, randomised, multicentre study of CRT for stage III/IV laryngeal/hypopharyngeal cancers (ART DECO, CRUK/10/018), we have(More)
