The effects of two weeks' treatment with chlordiazepoxide 10 mg t.i.d. or flupenthixole 0.5 mg t.i.d. on human psychomotor performance related to driving was examined on 20 healthy male students aged 20 to 23 years. The tests used were a choice reaction, two co-ordination and an attention test having correlation with traffic behaviour. Neither(More)
Fifty-nine consecutive patients (95 percent) with gastric cancer of the distal portion of the stomach were operated on with 95 percent subtotal gastrectomy between 1975 and 1980. The operations were for cure in all cases. Twenty-five patients were alive after 5 years, for a crude 5 year survival rate of 42 percent. The operative mortality rate was 5 percent(More)
Effects of diazepam and alcohol on psychomotor skills were measured in two trials. In the first one, 200 healthy students volunteered for a double-blind single-dose study. Three doses of diazepam (5, 10 and 20 mg) and alcohol (0.5, 0.8 and 1.2 g/kg) were used alone and combined to construct dose-response graphs. All doses of alcohol impaired divided(More)
Among the unsettled questions in the physiology of human epidermal growth factor (EGF) are (1) does EGF circulate in the blood and (2) what is the source of the abundant urinary immunoreactive EGF (irEGF). Therefore, we monitored the concentration of irEGF by an ultrasensitive assay in blood plasma from 5 healthy subjects every 20 min overnight carefully(More)
The effects of diazepam, 5 mg t. i. d., or lithium administered for two weeks on psychomotor skills was examined in 20 healthy male volunteers. The drugs were administered either with alcohol 0.5 g/kg or a placebo. Psychomotor skills were measured by a choice reaction test, two co-ordination tests and an attention test. Serum drug concentrations and blood(More)
Twenty paid healthy students volunteered for a doubleblind cross-over trial on the effects of two weeks' treatment with placebo, thioridazine and bromazepam on psychomotor skills. The doses used were thioridazine 10 mg t.i.d. during the first week and 20 mg t.i.d. during the second week, or 6 mg of bromazepam t.i.d. during two weeks choice reaction test,(More)
To evaluate the effects of improvements in medical therapy on the incidence of, indications for and operative methods used in peptic ulcer surgery, all cases of primary peptic ulcer surgery among adults in the city of Helsinki in the years 1972, 1977, 1982 and 1987 were analysed. There was a total of 565 such cases in a population which consisted of 5.2 X(More)
The effects of and recovery from luminal ethanol (0%-100%) were assessed in the in vitro chambered frog gastric mucosa. At concentrations of 5%-10%, the potential difference decreased during exposure, but recovered after washout. No gross or light microscopic changes were observed. During exposure to 20%-40% ethanol, potential difference and short circuit(More)
The clinical and histopathologic characteristics of gastric carcinoma in young patients (less than 40 years old) were studied retrospectively. The carcinoma was of the diffuse type in 94% of the young patients, and typical features were poor prognosis, an equal sex ratio, and a strong association with blood group A. The family histories of the young(More)
