Our study confirms the finding that about 85% of X chromosomes in Turner girls are maternally derived. A new observation is the detection of a high frequency of mosaicism (15%) in Turner girls who by cytogenetic analysis were thought to have a pure 45,X karyotype. DNA examination of the material was done by hybridization with digoxigenin labelled,(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the risk of adverse birth outcome in women who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs during pregnancy. DESIGN AND SETTING Population based cohort study and a case-control study, both based on data from a prescription registry, the Danish birth registry, and one county's hospital discharge registry. PARTICIPANTS COHORT STUDY:(More)
Lambs were inoculated with Ehrlichia phagocytophila infected blood at the age of either two or six weeks. The temperature response and degree of parasitaemia were both most pronounced in the lambs inoculated at six weeks old. The half-life of antibodies to E phagocytophila was estimated to be 17.5 days. Lambs inoculated with tick-borne fever (TBF) had lower(More)
A survey of summer eczema was conducted on 391 Icelandic horses in Norway. The study showed a prevalence of summer eczema of 17.6 per cent in the horses investigated. Icelandic horses born in Norway where shown to be less affected with summer eczema than imported horses, 8.2 per cent and 26.9 per cent respectively (P less than 0.001). There was no(More)
Twenty-three Icelandic horses were challenged with extracts of four species of biting midges: Culicoides pulicaris, C chiopterus, C obsoletus and C impunctatus. Fourteen of the tested horses were affected with summer eczema. The horses were challenged intradermally with 0.1 ml of whole-body extracts of midges at a concentration of 0.01 or 0.005 per cent(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the risk of malformations and fetal growth in women treated with anticonvulsant drugs in North Jutland County, Denmark. MATERIAL AND METHODS All women treated with anticonvulsant drugs in the county were identified in a Pharmaco-Epidemiological Prescription Database and linked to the Danish Medical Birth Registry and the Regional(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the risk of congenital abnormalities, preterm birth and low birth weight after exposure to phenoxymethylpenicillin in utero. METHODS A population-based follow-up study in the County of North Jutland, Denmark. Birth outcome for 1886 women, who redeemed prescriptions for phenoxymethylpenicillin during pregnancy was compared with the(More)
Children are not just small adults—they differ in their psychology, normal physiology and pathophysiology, and various aspects should be considered when planning a positron emission tomography (PET) scan in a child. PET in children is a growing area, and this article describes the practical use and implementation of PET in children in a hospital PET centre.(More)
Altogether, 292 goat alloantisera were screened for antilymphocyte reactivity in a two-step dye exclusion microcytotoxicity test. Fifteen different lymphocyte antigen specificities were characterized by cluster analysis and absorption studies. The specificities were designated N1-N15 (N for Norwegian). Lymphocytes from 247 Norwegian dairy goats were tested.(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine possible associations of ABO blood types with the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in pregnancy and the puerperium. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a nested case-control study within a cohort of 71,729 women who gave birth to 126,783 children in the North Jutland County, Denmark, from 1980 to 2001. We identified 129 cases with(More)
