BACKGROUND Friedreich's Ataxia (FRDA) is a neurodegenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to the central and peripheral nervous systems having a significant impact upon quality of life. With little information in the literature, cross-sectional observational studies were conducted in the UK and Germany to collect data on resource use and the(More)
BACKGROUND Attitudes towards physical activity are largely developed during childhood meaning that school physical education classes can have a strong influence. METHODS National level data of school pupils (n = 21 515) in England were analysed to examine the association between school provision of physical education with sex, age, geographic and(More)
Tension band wiring (TBW) used for olecranon fractures is afflicted with a high rate of complications. The aim of this study was to compare the stability of the TBW versus an alternative, novel low-profile olecranon tension plate (OTP) with angular stable screws in a simulated complex fracture model. Nine fresh-frozen pairs of cadaver proximal ulnae with an(More)
Bacteriophage tailspike proteins act as primary receptors, often possessing endoglycosidase activity toward bacterial lipopolysaccharides or other exopolysaccharides, which enable phage absorption and subsequent DNA injection into the host. Phage CBA120, a contractile long-tailed Viunalikevirus phage infects the virulent Escherichia coli O157:H7. This phage(More)
In factures of the distal tibia with simple articular extension, the optimal surgical treatment remains debatable. In clinical practice, minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis and intramedullary nailing are both routinely performed. Comparative biomechanical studies of different types of osteosynthesis of intraarticular distal tibial fractures are missing(More)
