Previous studies using higher, weight-based ribavirin dosing(More)
Among a cohort of 348 women aged 50 on entering a 12-year prospective study, the incidence of diabetes was increased (17.1%) during follow-up in those who initially had fasting glucose concentration above the upper quintile, a fasting serum insulin concentration above the upper quintile (14.9%), a disappearance rate of glucose below the lowest quintile in(More)
In a prospective study, 93 patients were observed up to nine months after open-heart surgery using hypothermia, hemodilution and cold cardioplegia. In the first two weeks frequent determinations were made of serum aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatases (ALP), lactic dehydrogenase isoenzymes, gamma glutamyltransferase (GT), total and free bilirubin and bile(More)
The findings at abdominal computed tomography (CT) in a patient with primary macroglobulinemia (Waldenström's disease) are reported. CT was of special value in monitoring the extent of the disease in the abdomen and the response to treatment.

Serum uric concentration was determined in a series of 1462 women, aged 38-60 when first examined in 1968-69, as the first phase of a longitudinal population study in Gothenburg, Sweden. Serum uric acid concentration was positively correlated to the 12-year overall mortality in univariate analysis. No relationship was observed between initial serum uric(More)
In a prospective study of 32 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia the frequency of chromosome abnormalities in addition to the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph) increased when the disease progressed. Before metamorphosis, 10 patients (31%) had developed additional abnormalities. Such abnormalities were present in three of them at the time of diagnosis; in the(More)
