BACKGROUND The study 20050181 demonstrated significant improvements in progression-free survival (PFS), objective response, and a nonsignificant trend toward increased overall survival (OS) with panitumumab-FOLFIRI versus FOLFIRI alone for second-line wild-type (WT) KRAS metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Updated long-term data from a prespecified(More)
AIMS To evaluate the effectiveness of phenobarbitone as an anticonvulsant in neonates. METHODS An observational study using video-EEG telemetry. Video-EEG was obtained before treatment was started, for an hour after treatment was given, two hours after treatment was given, and again between 12 and 24 hours after treatment was given. Patients were(More)
Human CC chemokines macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1alpha, MIP-1beta, and RANTES (regulated on activation normal T cell expressed) self-associate to form high-molecular mass aggregates. To explore the biological significance of chemokine aggregation, nonaggregating variants were sought. The phenotypes of 105 hMIP-1alpha variants generated by(More)
The Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) windsock experiment measured wind speed as a function of height to evaluate how wind energy is transferred to potentially mobile materials around the Pathfinder landing site. Here we report preliminary results from windsock data analysis pertaining to wind characteristics of the lower boundary layer during mission(More)
OBJECTIVES Anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy is a highly effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), as documented using standard outcome measures in clinical trials. Anecdotal experience suggests health benefits for patients other than those measured in this way. We wished to explore Patients' experience of and views about this(More)
Recently, several investigators have explored the possibility of targeting ricin to designated cell types in animals by its linkage to specific antibodies. There is evidence, however, that the mannose-containing oligosaccharide chains on ricin are recognised by reticuloendothelial cells in the liver and spleen and so cause the immunotoxins to be removed(More)
This case report highlights the problems associated with ruptured silicone breast implants used for breast reconstructive purposes. The patient originally presented with vague symptoms and signs to her GP and was extensively investigated over a period of years for left-sided chest/abdominal pain. Two separate scanning modalities were used prior to her being(More)
This paper describes and validates a new Cumulative Pressure-Time Index (CPT) which takes into account both duration and degree of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) derangement and determines critical thresholds for CPP, in a paediatric head injury dataset. Sixty-six head-injured children, with invasive minute-to-minute intracranial pressure (ICP) and blood(More)
Attempts to target antibody-ricin conjugates (immunotoxins) to designated cell types in vivo may be thwarted by their rapid clearance by hepatic reticuloendothelial cells which have receptors that recognise oligosaccharide side chains on the toxin. The B-chain of ricin contains high mannose type oligosaccharides and the A-chain contains a complex unit(More)
