This report examines the effect of the transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 receptor antagonist SB-705498 on neurotransmission and inflammation-induced sensitisation in the trigeminovascular sensory system. A single-neuron electrophysiological animal model for neurovascular head pain was used to evaluate dural and facial noxious inputs and the effects(More)
TRPV1 is a cation channel activated by a range of noxious stimuli and highly expressed in nociceptive fibres. TRPV1 receptors are involved in pain and sensitisation associated with tissue injury and inflammation; hence, TRPV1 antagonists are potentially useful for the treatment of such pain states. SB-705498 is a potent, selective and orally bioavailable(More)
The effectiveness of cancer radiotherapy is compromised by the small proportion (approximately 5%) of patients who sustain severe normal tissue damage after standard radiotherapy treatments. Predictive tests are required to identify these highly radiosensitive cases. Patients with the rare, recessively inherited, cancer-prone syndrome ataxia-telangiectasia(More)
GSK2696273 (autologous CD34+ cells transduced with retroviral vector that encodes for the human adenosine deaminase [ADA] enzyme) is a gamma-retroviral ex vivo gene therapy of bone marrow-derived CD34+ cells for the treatment of adenosine deaminase deficiency severe combined immunodeficiency (ADA-SCID). ADA-SCID is a severe monogenic disease characterized(More)
Patients who have had ileogastrostomy for the treatment of morbid obesity require close, long-term follow-up. From a prospective study of a large number of variables in 12 consecutive patients, and from experience with more than 200 patients who have undergone this procedure since 1982, a protocol has evolved. The authors outline the associated morbid(More)
Adenosine deaminase (ADA) deficiency is a rare, autosomal-recessive systemic metabolic disease characterized by severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). The treatment of choice for ADA-deficient SCID (ADA-SCID) is hematopoietic stem cell transplant from an HLA-matched sibling donor, although <25% of patients have such a donor available. Enzyme replacement(More)
Degenerate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers and specific PCR conditions have been developed for the selective amplification of a polymorphic region of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBisCo) small subunit (ssu) genes. Reliable amplification has been achieved for genes from more than 20 plant species from a variety of taxonomic groups.(More)
OBJECTIVE To undertake a prospective randomised controlled study to investigate whether there is any beneficial renal effect in the perioperative administration of mannitol in patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation. METHODS Patients presenting in end-stage liver failure for orthotopic liver transplantation had their preoperative renal(More)
