Anterior cruciate ligament-deficient (ACLD) knee kinematics during high-demand activities are poorly understood. We have devised a new method, using gait analysis, to more accurately assess 3-D in vivo kinematics of the knee. This has enabled us to report on how knee kinematics are altered after ACL rupture, during running and cutting. Fifteen unilaterally(More)
Thirty five homosexual men (17 positive for antibody to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and 18 consistently negative) were vaccinated against hepatitis B virus infection. Eight of the 17 seropositive patients failed to develop detectable hepatitis B surface antibody within three months of the third injection compared with only one of the 18(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the abnormalities in CSF from HIV infected patients with acute lumbosacral polyradiculopathy (ALP) caused by cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. METHODS Retrospective case notes and laboratory records were reviewed for 17 consecutive patients with CMV associated ALP admitted to specialist HIV/AIDS units at UCL Hospitals and Chelsea and(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to determine the frequency and clinical significance of detection of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 120 HIV-infected individuals. Six of 8 CSF samples from patients with recent (up to 8 months previously) or concurrent cutaneous zoster contained detectable VZV DNA using the polymerase(More)
The aetiology of acute anterior uveitis (AAU) in the great majority of cases is unclear. Various infective agents have been postulated, however, as playing a direct or indirect part in the disease process, possibly via an immune-complex vasculitis. In an earlier study we concluded that, contrary to a previous report, hepatitis B virus (HBV) played only a(More)
