The problem of the differential diagnosis both of central nervous system haemangioblastomas and metastases of renal clear cell carcinomas was investigated by immunoperoxidase labelled antibody staining of five cases each of haemangioblastoma and metastatic renal carcinoma. Staining using anticarcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), antikeratin, antifactor VIII(More)
This article reviews the evidence and nutrition practice recommendations from the American Dietetic Association's nutrition practice guidelines for type 1 and type 2 diabetes in adults. The research literature was reviewed to answer nutrition practice questions and resulted in 29 recommendations. Here, we present the recommendations and provide a(More)
To assess the variability among histopathologists in diagnosing and grading cervical intraepithelial neoplasia eight experienced histopathologists based at different hospitals examined the same set of 100 consecutive colposcopic cervical biopsy specimens and assigned them into one of six diagnostic categories. These were normal squamous epithelium,(More)
Metabolic rate is generally assessed by use of equations in critically ill patients, but evidence pertaining to the validity of these equations in this population has not been systematically evaluated. This paper represents the first such systematic analysis in adult patients. A work group created by the American Dietetic Association identified pertinent(More)
Eight histopathologists, based at different hospitals, who had previously examined 100 consecutive colposcopic cervical biopsies were circulated with the results of the initial study. The slides were then 'reblinded' and re-examined by the pathologists who, as before, assigned them into one of six diagnostic categories. The degree of interpathologist(More)
Histological material was studied in five unselected cases of intestinal large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, occurring in patients either with previously diagnosed coeliac disease, or with atrophic mucosa at the time of diagnosis. The morphological diagnosis in each case was centroblastic lymphoma: these tumours were composed of large cells with pale nuclei(More)
Ten young adult female Wistar rats were placed in a decompression chamber at a simulated altitude of 5500 m for 28 days, after which they were killed and their salivary glands and thoracic organs were compared with those of eight matched control rats that had been maintained at sea-level atmospheric pressure. The prolonged hypoxic conditions were severe(More)
When measurement of resting metabolic rate (RMR) by indirect calorimetry is necessary, following evidence-based protocols will ensure the individual has achieved a resting state. The purpose of this project was to update the best practices for measuring RMR by indirect calorimetry in healthy and non-critically ill adults and children found the Evidence(More)
