DESIGN Cohort study with a prospectively constructed, population based, record linkage database containing details of exposure to all community dispensed non-steroidal(More)
Accumulation and elimination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were studied in the fungus Fusarium solani. When the fungus was grown on a synthetic medium containing benzo[a]pyrene, hyphae of F. solani contained numerous lipid vesicles which could be stained by the lipid-specific dyes: Sudan III and Rhodamine B. The fluorescence produced by(More)

PURPOSE To identify and isolate cDNAs for the alternatively spliced vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mRNAs present in retina and to compare the relative levels of the splice variants and localization of VEGF mRNA in nonischemic and ischemic adult simian retinas. METHODS Retinas of cynomolgous monkeys were made ischemic by laser occlusion of the(More)
This paper introduces a novel technique for the visualization of data at various levels of detail. This is based on a colour-based representation of the data, where “high level” views of the data are obtained by merging colours together to obtain a summary-colour which represents a number of data-points.
