BACKGROUND There are limited effective treatment options available and a poor 5-year survival for patients with inoperable neuroendocrine liver metastases (NETLMs). In this study, the authors prospectively assessed the safety and efficacy of treatment with yttrium 90 ((90)Y) radioactive microspheres for patients with unresectable NETLMs. METHODS(More)
Thylakoid membranes of the cryptophyte Chroomonas sp. strain LT were solubilized with dodecyl-beta-maltoside and subjected to sucrose density gradient centrifugation. The four pigment protein complexes obtained were subsequently characterized by absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, SDS-PAGE, and Western immunoblotting using antisera against the(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is more common in countries with improved hygiene, suggesting that environmental exposures may be associated with its development. The primary objective of this study was to examine the association between self-reported childhood helminth infection and the development of IBD in South Africa. METHODS Unmatched(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to enhance (i) insight in the relationship between different types of employment contract and the quality of working life, health and well-being, and (ii) our causal understanding of these relationships by comparing employees whose contract type changes across time. METHODS Analyses were based on a two-year prospective(More)
UNLABELLED In previous studies, (99m)Tc-recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) imaging has had a high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In this technique, the plasminogen activation site of rt-PA undergoes inactivation but fibrin binding is retained. Uptake of (99m)Tc-rt-PA into DVT relies on binding of(More)
BACKGROUND Early identification of true renal disease (glomerular filtration rate (GFR) < 60 mL/min) results in better patient outcomes. There is now routine reporting in Australia of estimated GFR (eGFR) in all patients over age 18 who have serum creatinine measured, calculated by the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formula, which was(More)
