Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) is known to induce wasting in humans and animals. This study was undertaken to determine TNF-alpha concentrations in children with sickle cell disease (SCD) and whether high TNF-alpha levels are more likely to be present in children with growth deficits, infection, or pain crisis. Tumor necrosis factor alpha was(More)
Zinc deficiency has been implicated in impaired cell-mediated immunity of children with sickle cell disease (SCD). However, its influence on the expression of vascular cell-adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) on endothelial cells, a protein involved in vasoocclusion, has not been previously investigated. We therefore measured (soluble) sVCAM-1 and zinc in 76 SCD(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with an acute myocardial infarction require a rapid response to their symptoms and the earlier fibrinolysis is given (where indicated), the better the outcome. AIMS The aim of this study is to compare 'door to needle times' for fibrinolysis in Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) in three phases of one year each, at Letterkenny General(More)
Samples of ground, cracked, or whole kernels of sorghum or corn were inoculated with Aspergillus flavus no. 15546. The samples were incubated at 25 or 30 C and 90% relative humidity for 48 or 72 h. In all treatments, the 72-h samples contained more aflatoxins B1 and B2 than the 48-h samples. Cracked sorghum at 30 C for 72 h and whole sorghum at 25 C for 72(More)
