We showed previously (Br J Surgery 1994, 81, 217-220) that long-term survival was significantly poorer when surgery was performed during the(More)
PURPOSE The authors performed a series of experiments designed to determine if early effects of YAG laser cycloablation could be detected by ultrasound biomicroscopy in postmortem eyes and living patients. They also designed an apparatus that allowed simultaneous ultrasound biomicroscopic imaging of YAG laser cycloablation. METHODS Treated and untreated(More)
The safety and tolerability of primaquine (PQ) administered as a short higher-dose (30mg twice daily for 7 days) regimen in 203 Australian Defence Force personnel was evaluated in an open-label presumptive anti-relapse therapy study. No clinically significant differences were measured in the subjects' haematological and biochemical indices before and after(More)
