BACKGROUND The lack of sufficient specificity and sensitivity among conventional cancer biomarkers, such as prostate specific antigen (PSA) for prostate cancer has been widely recognized after several decades of clinical implications. Autoantibodies (autoAb) among others are being extensively investigated as potential substitute markers, but remain elusive.(More)
AIMS Cardiovascular (CV) disease is a major cause of reduced life expectancy in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Intensive insulin therapy prevents CV complications but is constrained by hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Adjunct metformin reduces insulin dose requirement and stabilizes weight but there are no data on its cardiovascular effects. We have therefore(More)
OBJECTIVE Biomechanical comparison between locked plating and retrograde nailing of supracondylar femur fractures with simulated postoperative weight-bearing. METHODS The Locking Condylar Plate (LCP) and Retrograde/Antegrade EX Femoral Nail (RAFN) were tested using 10 paired elderly cadaveric femurs, divided into Normal and Low Bone Mineral Density (BMD)(More)
BACKGROUND Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) has demonstrated significantly reduced wear and osteolysis into the second decade for total hip arthroplasty. There is a relative paucity of data with ≥36-mm bearings. Issues include potential effects of reduced liner thickness and component position on wear, osteolysis, and mechanical failure of the bearing. (More)
It is desirable to maintain normal, conducted ventricular activation in patients with dual-chamber pacemakers and preserved atrioventricular (AV) conduction. The shortest AV delay resulting in consistent ventricular inhibition (avoiding ventricular pseudofusion) was determined by a conventional incremental (inside-out) technique vs the alternate decremental(More)
