It is proposed that the human motor system is organized to use hardware and/or software non-linear oscillator mechanisms, the output of these oscillators being responsible for driving the limbs via signals to muscle groups. Following earlier theoretical development, it is argued that these muscle groupings act as a unit and themselves are likely to behave(More)
Acute encephalopathy was associated with the appearance of antibodies to human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV-III) in two patients. A third patient showed seroconversion for anti-HTLV-III, but the temporal association was not established so precisely. The illness was characterised by a prodromal period of up to 2 weeks, characterised by pyrexia, general(More)
Of the several facets of technique that must be addressed to allow the generation of highly accurate results by gas chromatographic analysis of fatty acid methyl esters, that of split injection to capillary columns has long been a major problem. A practical solution of this problem is now proposed. Three factors were found to be of major importance in(More)
This study examined the effects of freezing, storage, and cabinet drying on the anthocyanin content and antioxidant activity of blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L). Fresh samples were stored for two weeks at 5◦C while frozen samples were kept for up to three months at −20◦C. There were two drying treatments, one including osmotic pretreatment followed by(More)
At the end of 1984 a collaborative survey was carried out to determine the prevalence of infection with human T cell lymphotropic virus type III/lymphadenopathy associated virus (HTLV-III/LAV) and HTLV-I among 584 recipients of various blood products in Britain at that time. In 204 cases yearly point prevalence figures for infection were also obtained for(More)
Thirty patients who had not previously received treatment with factor VIII concentrate or who had been treated only infrequently with factor VIII concentrate were studied after a transfusion of factor VIII. Tests of liver function were performed frequently. Four patients had evidence of chronic liver disease before transfusion. In 17 of the remaining 26(More)
An outbreak of jaundice associated with three out of four batches of a commercial brand of freeze-dried factor-VIII concentrate occurred at the Bournemouth haemophilia centre between April and June, 1974. Seven cases of non-B hepatitis and four of hepatitis B occurred within 6 months of the first use of this product. Two patients contracted both types of(More)
A retrospective survey of transfusion hepatitis associated with a brand of commercial Factor VIII was carried out in 24 Haemophilia Centres from January 1974 until December 1975. Of 371 patients who were transfused with this product, and were followed up, 78 cases of hepatitis affecting 66 patients were found (17.7%). Two types of hepatitis were observed:(More)
