Glycine concentrations were measured in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid of five patients in different types of hyperglycinemia to determine why severe neurologic deterioration is confined to the so-called nonketotic form of hyperglycinemia. Glycine content and glycine-cleavage enzyme activity were also determined in brain obtained in autopsy from three of(More)

In Canada, the status of CF transition has not been previously reported. The aim of the present study was to describe the transition from paediatric to adult health care for CF patients in Canada,(More)
UNLABELLED In N. America, over the past decade, various airway clearance techniques (ACT) have been introduced for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF). We hypothesized that autogenic drainage (AD), an ACT developed in Belgium would be as effective as postural drainage with percussion (PD) in treating patients with CF. METHODS Thirty-six CF patients,(More)
technical assistance. The significance of developing training opportunities within each country or within the region was again emphasized, and the need to use fully the training facilities in the sending countries before using the host country’s resources was brought out. The representative from India analyzed the psychological aspects of the learning(More)
BACKGROUND Positive expiratory pressure (PEP) is the most commonly used method of airway clearance (AC) in Canada for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) whereas, in some countries, high frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) is the preferred form of AC. There have been no long-term studies comparing the efficacy of HFCWO and PEP in the CF population. (More)
