Vitamin D metabolites were measured on admission in eight patients intoxicated with ergocalciferol (serum calcium 3.01-4.05 mmol/l) and also during the subsequent 2 months in six of the eight. Serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyergocalciferol, on admission, were grossly elevated in all patients (range 583-1843 nmol/l). Serum calcium concentration was related(More)
Artemisia absynthium L. is a commonly used medicinal plant for parasitic diseases all over the world. By means of high-performance liquid chromatography with diode-array detection and the PU6100 solvent optimization system, two sesquiterpene lactones, alpha-santonin and ketopelenolid-A, were tentatively identified in methanolic extracts of this plant.(More)
Information s>Stems plans traditionallyhave been conceived as a Ineatis of recogilizing opportunities and problems where information technology might be used, identifying the resources needed to support the application of information technology, and developing strategies and procedures to allow information technology to be applied successfully.

The serum concentrations of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25 OH D3), 24,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [24,25(OH)-2D3] and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [1,25(OH)2D3] were measured in twenty-one patients with untreated hyperthyroidism. Compared with control subjects, 25 OH D3 concentrations were not altered, 24,25(OH)2D3 concentrations were increased, although(More)
A comparison of two regimens of vitamin D prophylaxis in elderly institutionalized subjects has been made. Sixty-six subjects received 2.5mg vitamin D2 by mouth in December 1982; a further group of 62 received the same dose in December 1982 and again in June 1983. Blood samples have been analysed for 25-hydroxyvitamin D2 [25(OH)D2] in 10 subjects from each(More)
A competitive protein binding assay for 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol has been developed using the hormone's nuclear receptor protein from chick intestinal mucosa. This nuclear receptor protein can be stored at -70 degrees C for several months and bound and free hormone can be separated easily with dextran coated charcoal. Results obtained using this assay(More)
The seasonal changes in the biochemical indices of vitamin D nutrition have been measured in elderly people with differing requirements for institutionalized care. Residents of local authority homes (LAH) showed an increase in serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25(OH)D3] between spring and autumn (means 14-17 nmol/l, P less than 0.002). No significant seasonal(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed at a comparative analysis of neurobiochemical markers of brain damage and the neurobehavioral outcome in patients undergoing either valve replacement (VR) or isolated coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). In order to control for well known risk factors both samples were strictly matched according to age, sex and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the pilot study was to provide information about the design and use of saucepan handles to enable clinicians and designers to specify and provide products that are more appropriate for use by people with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). The objectives were: to evaluate aspects of new handle design for saucepans in terms of their ease of use for(More)
