Values of travel time savings are often used in cost-benefit analysis of transport projects and policies, and also to compute generalised travel costs. There has been considerable debate as to whether different research methods (e.g. stated versus revealed preference) will lead to different values of travel time savings, and which segmentations (e.g. by(More)
The Hennekam syndrome is an infrequently reported heritable entity characterized by lymphedema, lymphangiectasia, and developmental delay. Here we add an additional 8 patients, and compare their findings to the 16 cases from the literature. The lymphedema is usually congenital, can be markedly asymmetrical, and, often, gradually progressive. Complications(More)
Tuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant disease with variable expression. The initial manifestations have been reported at varying stages postnatally, but little is known about the fetal age at which the disease may be detected. The antenatal ultrasonographic features in 2 affected fetuses, at 40 and 26 weeks respectively, are reported. The second case(More)
Colorectal adenomas are macroscopically visible morphological changes of the mucosa that can develop focal carcinoma in the absence of surgical intervention. The successive molecular changes proposed to occur at different stages in the adenoma-carcinoma sequence were primarily based on DNA studies of exophytic, polypoid-type adenomas. Not all colorectal(More)
Six individuals with Proteus syndrome have been investigated; 2 were adults and the others ranged in age from 2 to 11 years. They had a wide spectrum of manifestations and severity together with the hitherto unreported anomalies of penile hypertrophy, macro-orchidism, goiter, and failure of breast development. These findings were associated with normal(More)
South Africa has one of the highest incidences of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in the world. Concomitantly, aminoglycosides are commonly used in this country as a treatment against MDR-TB. To date, at least five mutations are known to confer susceptibility to aminoglycoside-induced hearing loss. The aim of the present study was to develop a(More)
Background. Ototoxicity following aminoglycoside treatment for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is a significant problem. This study documents the incidence of ototoxicity in HIV-positive and HIV-negative patients with MDR-TB and presents clinical guidelines relating to ototoxicity. Methods. A prospective cohort study of 153 MDR-TB patients with(More)
