Craniosynostosis is a serious condition of childhood, caused by the early fusion of the sutures of the skull. The resulting abnormal skull development can lead to severe deformities, increased intra-cranial pressure, as well as vision, hearing and breathing problems. In this work we develop a novel approach to accurately classify deformations caused by(More)
Sera from 31 HBsAg-positive Chinese patients with inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were tested for hepatitis B virus DNA (HBV DNA) by means of dot hybridisation and Southern blot technique. HBV DNA probes were prepared from human plasma. Eighteen of the patients were HBeAb-positive, 12 were HBeAg-positive and one case had neither marker. Serial(More)
In a prospective trial of 75 Chinese patients with histologically proven inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), 25 patients were randomised to receive doxorubicin 60-75 mg m-2 intravenously once every 3 weeks, 25 to receive recombinant alpha 2 interferon (rIFN) (Roferon) 9-18 x 10(6) IU m-2 intramuscularly (i.m.) daily and 25 to receive rIFN 25-50 x(More)
Single-suture craniosynostosis is a condition of the sutures of the infant's skull that causes major craniofacial deformities and is associated with an increased risk of cognitive deficits and learning/language disabilities. In this paper we adapt to classification of synostostic head shapes a Bayesian methodology that overcomes the limitations of our(More)
ONE OF THE BIOCHEMICAL MARKERS for human and animal tumours is the accumulation of certain ether lipids which may be measured collectively as O-alkylglycerols in the neutral lipids fraction (Snyder & Wood, 1969). These lipids are increase(I in a wide variety of neoplastic cells (Fried-berg & Halpert, 1978) and malignant tissues including human HCC (Snyder &(More)
Craniosynostosis is a serious and common pediatric disease caused by the premature fusion of sutures of the skull. Although studies have shown an increase in risk for cognitive deficits in patients with isolated craniosynostosis, the causal basis for this association is still unclear. It is hypothesized that an abnormally shaped skull produces a secondary(More)
