A survival analysis was performed using the case records of 189 dogs, including 38 breeds, with congestive heart failure caused by dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Overall prognosis was poor, with survival rates of 17.5% at one year and 7.5% at two years. Prognosis in the individual case of DCM proved to be difficult to predict at the time of initial(More)
The study aims to describe the influence of sports activities, high body weight and smoking on low-back pain. The results were obtained from a population-based case-referent study, the Musculoskeletal Intervention Center (MUSIC)-Norrtälje study. In all, 342 male and 449 female cases, and 662 male and 948 female referents participated. Neither low-intensity(More)
The authors investigated the association of smoking and smoking cessation with the incidence of cataract extraction in a population-based prospective cohort study. A total of 34,595 women aged 49-83 years in the Swedish Mammography Cohort were followed from September 1997 through June 2002. Information on smoking, diet, and other lifestyle factors was(More)
The efficacy of a topical anesthetic on pain and unpleasantness provoked by scaling of gingival pockets was investigated in 20 patients with mild chronic periodontitis. A eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA) and a placebo cream, both occluded by Orahesive Oral Bandages, were applied in a balanced, randomized, double-blind, split-mouth design, which(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the outcome of minor amputations (through, or distal to, the ankle joint) in patients with diabetes. METHOD All diabetic patients in a defined population undergoing one or more minor amputation between 1982 and 2006 were investigated according to a standardised protocol and were followed until final outcome (healing or death). A total(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether the gold standard of 24-hour urine collection for measuring albumin excretion in pre-eclamptic women could be substituted by shorter collection periods. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Fetal maternity ward, university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Thirty women with pre-eclampsia and a positive urinary test strip for protein of(More)
Nineteen euthyroid dogs of 12 breeds with echocardiographic signs of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and radiographic and clinical signs of congestive heart failure (CHF) were evaluated in a randomised, double-blind, and placebo-controlled study. The dogs received either thyroxine or placebo as an adjunct to digoxin, furosemide and propranolol. The group(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the safety and tolerability of extended-release quetiapine fumarate (quetiapine XR) compared with quetiapine immediate-release (quetiapine IR) in older patients with Alzheimer's disease with symptoms of psychosis and/or agitation. METHODS This was a 6-week, double-blind, double-dummy, randomised study.(More)
A randomized, double-blind, three-period cross-over study was performed to characterize the sensory phenotype and pain demographics in patients with Morton neuroma (n=27) and to explore the effects of local administration (2mL) of placebo and lidocaine (1 and 10mg/mL) around the neuroma. Using the pain quality assessment scale (PQAS), the highest rating was(More)
OBJECTIVE NXY-059 is a novel free-radical trapping neuroprotectant. Digoxin treatment is common in acute ischaemic stroke, the intended patient population for NXY-059. Since both digoxin and NXY-059 are eliminated primarily renally, with a substantial contribution by active renal secretion, and because digoxin has a narrow therapeutic window, this open,(More)
