A follow-up study of poliomyelitis, rubella, and dengue antibodies has been made in light of results obtained in a 1972 health and serological survey in Barbados, W.I. Poliomyelitis antibody neutralization tests performed on sera from 307 children under age 15 using overnight serum/virus mixtures on microtiter plates at low serum dilutions revealed the(More)
BACKGROUND The face can be reanimated after long-term paralysis by free microneurovascular tissue transfer. Flaps from gracilis and pectoralis minor usually require a two-stage procedure with a cross-face nerve graft. Latissimus dorsi has a much longer muscular nerve, the thoracodorsal nerve, which could avoid the need for a second cross-face nerve graft.(More)
Normal human fibroblasts exposed to the mutagen 3-methyl 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (3me4NQO) were additionally incubated with or without the inhibitor of poly ADP-ribose polymerase, 3 aminobenzamide (3AB) either during or after mutagen treatment. The number of single strand DNA breaks detectable by alkaline sucrose sedimentation at any given time after(More)
A formalized system for selecting patients requiring long-term hospital accommodation is described and our first two years' experience presented. Fifty patients were considered by the panel of whom 25 were designated as being suitable to be transferred to a long-term bed. Alternative solutions were considered more appropriate for the remaining 25; only(More)
Forty elderly patients, aged 68 to 89 years, with congestive cardiac failure, who were attending a hospital out-patients department, entered an open, parallel group, comparative study of two diuretic combinations, 40 mg frusemide plus 5 mg amiloride per tablet and 0.5 mg bumetanide plus 573 mg slow-release potassium chloride per tablet. Patients were(More)
Interest in the technological applications of sol-gel processes in the synthesis of specialised materials such as ceramics, adsorbents, and catalysts has grown enormously recently. This development has arisen from a greater awareness of the inter relationships between the structure and properties of these materials and the characteristics of the precursor(More)
Four hundred and twenty-six elderly subjects were assessed for the presence of dyskinetic movements. Dyskinetic movements were present in 49 subjects (11.5%). Ninety-two per cent had orofacial movements, by far the commonest being chewing. Dyskinetic movements were present in 12.5% of women and 7.6% of men. Abnormal movements were present in 8% of the(More)
