OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of serial casting with positioning for 1 hour per day for the treatment of elbow flexion contracture in adults with traumatic brain injury. DESIGN Pragmatic randomized controlled trial with concealed allocation and assessor blinding. SETTING Four brain injury rehabilitation units. SUBJECTS Twenty-six adults with elbow(More)
A DNA sequence encoding rat neuronal NO synthase (nNOS) was isolated and cloned into the baculovirus expression vector pVL1393 to generate pVLRBNOS. Transfection of Spodoptera frugiperda Sf-21 cells with the construct pVLRBNOS resulted in the synthesis of high levels of neuronal NO synthase. Analysis of the expression pattern revealed soluble, enzymatically(More)

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE To describe and evaluate a pilot community based rehabilitation programme for severe brain injury. RESEARCH DESIGN A prospective repeated-measures design with a single convenience sample was conducted. METHODS AND PROCEDURES Eleven participants with a history of severe brain injury completed the programme, which featured an outdoor(More)
A centrifugal microanalysis system using spectrophotometric detection has been developed for the determination of nitrite and chromium VI. The system was designed to illustrate the potential of centrifugal microfluidic systems for on-site (field) analysis of waters. The performance was significantly better than manual/visual field test systems and(More)
