BACKGROUND A post marketing surveillance study was conducted to evaluate safety and efficacy of natalizumab in Swedish multiple sclerosis (MS) patients since its introduction in August 2006 until March 2010. METHODS Patients were registered in the web-based Swedish MS-registry at 40 locations and evaluated every 6 months. Adverse events and clinical(More)
STUDY DESIGN The lung function test by a Plethysmograph enabled calculations to be made of the total lung capacity and vital capacity. A Motion Analysis System (Elite, BTS Inc., Milano, Italy) was used to observe and record chest cage and spinal movements and as to correlate lung function with the chest cage and spine kinematics. OBJECTIVES To determine(More)
As part of a comprehensive evaluation of lung function in Hong Kong-born Chinese children and adolescents, this study was conducted to determine updated prediction equations for spirometry, to evaluate the secular changes of lung function during the past decade, and to compare these results with other data sets. The results are based on 852 (392 male, 460(More)
Twenty-one children born 1970-76, selected from 103 children of 30 alcoholic women, were paired to controls matched for sex, age, birth weight and gestational age. The sample (10 girls, 11 boys) was representative of the whole group with regard to weight, length and head circumference at birth. At follow-up (mean age 70 months) the study group was(More)
Ten boys 9-12 years of age with severe perennial asthma participated in a physical exercise programme lasting 8 months. Pulmonary function and psychological tests were performed before training, immediately after, and one year after the end of the exercise programme. Static lung volumes, flow-volume variables and histamine tolerance were used as indicators(More)
As part of a comprehensive evaluation of lung function in Hong Kong Chinese children and adolescents, over a thousand healthy subjects aged 7-19 yr from seven schools were recruited for lung function testing that included spirometry and, in many cases, lung subdivision measurements. Lung function tests were performed using SensorMedics Automated Body(More)
Previous research in neuroendocrinology has evidenced that hyperactivity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) depends on hypersecretion of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). The aim of this study was to investigate the activity of HPA before and after recovery in depressed patients treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). An(More)
