Smith for helpful discussions on this topic and Hussein Mahmoud and Sheila Nkonge for valuable research assistance. All remaining errors are ours alone. 2 Introduction The purpose of our Global Livestock CRSP project is to identify risk reducing alternatives for East African pastoralists. Many believe the level of risk faced by pastoralists is excessive and… (More)
Acute tumour lysis syndrome (ATLS) is a metabolic derangement (hyperuricaemia, hyperphosphataemia, hyperkalaemia and hypocalcaemia) associated with lymphoproliferative malignancies. The nature and severity of the metabolic alterations are variable. Major complications are oliguric acute renal failure and delays in initiating chemotherapy. Current management… (More)
The majority (approximately 75%) of infant acute leukaemias have a reciprocal translocation between chromosome 11q23 and one of several partner chromosomes. The gene at 11q23 (named MLL, ALL-1, HRX or HTRX-1; refs 2-6) has been cloned and shares homology with the Drosophila developmental gene trithorax. Rearrangements of this gene (called HRX here) occur in… (More)
Tretinoin is effective in acute promyelocytic leukaemia in adults. Data about its efficacy and safety in children are limited. We have treated 9 children with tretinoin at 45 mg/m2 per day. Pseudotumour cerebri or hyperleucocytosis occurred in 5 patients. Retinoic acid syndrome was seen in 3 cases. 1 of 2 children who developed hyperleucocytosis,… (More)
— In this paper, new compact narrowband, broadband and ultra-wideband microstrip patch filtenna structures (dual/triple/forth) have been proposed and presented. The proposed filtennas have been analyzed, investigated and optimized using the microwave CST_Studio simulator for three different ground geometries. The presented filtenna structures are mounted on… (More)
