OBJECTIVE Individuals with chronic pancreatitis are at increased risk for pancreatic cancer. We hypothesized that genetic variation in the γ-glutamyltransferase 1 (GGT1) gene, which was recently reported associated with pancreatic cancer risk in a genome-wide association study, is also associated with risk of chronic pancreatitis. METHODS Associations(More)
To assess the safety of nonselective intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) performed from a transbrachial approach with 4-French-catheters, the complications occurring in 158 examinations were studied. Two patients developed local thrombosis and in four patients there were temporary pulse deficits. Three brachial artery catheterisations were(More)
Daily urinary oestrogen excretion was measured by radioimmunoassay in 6 adult female cotton-topped tamarins. Four females showed obvious cyclicity in oestrogen excretion and the mean cycle length for 10 complete cycles was 22.7 +/- 1.7 days with a range of 19-25 days. In 3 of the 6 females a dip-and-read test for blood in the urine gave positive readings(More)
Clinical examination is the most accurate means of determining cruciate ligament integrity in the initial evaluation. In the case of a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament the Lachman test has a high diagnostic accuracy, especially if the end point is absent. The Knee Arthrometer KT-1000 is a useful tool, as it is easy and fast to handle by an(More)
The levels of immunoreactive oestrone, oestradiol-17 beta and oestriol in plasma and urine were measured during early, mid- and late pregnancy in the marmoset monkey. In plasma, unconjugated oestrone remained less than 2% of total (conjugated plus unconjugated) oestrone throughout gestation, whereas unconjugated oestradiol-17 beta increased from 3% of the(More)
From November 1976 to February 1979 a total of 8 litters were born to 6 females. Of the 14 infants, 10 were successfully reared by their parents. Housing, nutrition, a balance between environmental stability and stimulation, and female multiparity are seen as factors contributing to the breeding success of this colony. A controlled male and female pairing(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant solid tumors are rare events in childhood and adolescence. Therefore central review of the histology and standardized grading are requested for accurate risk estimation and facilitate a tumor risk adapted treatment. AIMS OF THE STUDY To abandon the time consuming transportation of tumor material over long distances to the specialized(More)
