We have searched, using a sensitive nested-PCR, for enterovirus RNA in cerebrospinal fluid and post mortem central nervous system (CNS) tissue from patients with previous poliomyelitis with or without late functional deterioration, patients with motor neuron disease (MND), and control patients with other neurological disease or without neurological disease.(More)
Thresholds for pressure pain were tested in 64 adult human subjects (age: M=22.0 yr., SD=7.5). The subjects were young adults drawn from a student population. They were divided into two groups of men and two groups of women, with 16 participants in each group. A female experimenter tested one group of men and a male experimenter tested the other group. The(More)
By means of two different IgM-capture assays, enterovirus-specific IgM responses were shown in 9 of 14 (64%) patients with chronic relapsing pericarditis. This finding suggests persistent enterovirus infection, particularly coxsackie B virus infection. IgM responses persisted for at least 1 year and for up to 10 years after onset of symptoms. In contrast,(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 2%-26% of women of reproductive age and is often accompanied by obesity. Modest weight loss reduces health risks and ameliorates effects of the syndrome. Weight loss interventions are mainly of short duration and have limited success. A systematic review of the literature was carried out to assess the efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies examining protease inhibitor use in pregnancy and the rate of preterm and small-for-gestational-age infants have yielded conflicting results. METHODS This was a retrospective study of HIV-infected women who delivered singleton infants at our institution between 1984 and 2014. Women with protease inhibitor use were compared to(More)
We have thus far failed to observe any inclusion bodies in herpetic lesions which in our opinion may properly be interpreted as microorganisms. Concerning the exact nature of the granules so fully reported by others before us, we hesitate to commit ourselves other than to indicate certain points of resemblance to nuclear débris, red blood cells in the(More)
In this case report, we describe the utilisation of two recently developed technologies for the successful management of a persistent air leak (PAL) in a critically ill patient in whom cardiothoracic surgical intervention was not possible. We report the case of a young leukaemic woman with a PAL complicating Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis (IPA), who was(More)
That the thyroid plays an important, though little understood, part in growth and in the coordination and regulation of vital phenomena has been demonstrated repeatedly-with unusual clearness in the case of amphibia'-and it is fully recognized by physiologists. We are also familiar with some of the more conspicuous constitutional disturbances which follow(More)
