Platelet functions were studied in 16 patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and 4 with primary macroglobulinemia (PM). The fall in immunoglobulins on therapy was correlated with the status of platelet function. Effect of incubation of normal platelets with immunoglobulins derived from these patients on kaolin-induced platelet factor 3 (PF3) release was(More)
Pulmonary vascular changes were studied in 100 cases of isolated mitral stenosis; these included 90 patients in whom lung biopsies were obtained at valvotomy and 10 patients who came to necropsy. Medial thickness of the pulmonary arteries was measured in each case and in 12 cases was correlated with the haemodynamic data. Most patients were young, 78 being(More)
Sequence design and resource allocation for a symbol-asynchronous chip-synchronous code division multiple access (CDMA) system is considered in this paper. A simple lower bound on the minimum sum-power required for a non-oversized system, based on the best achievable for a non-spread system, and an analogous upper bound on the sum rate are first summarised.(More)
3 cases of congenital dyserythropoietic anaemia (type I, case 3; type III, cases 1 and 2) are reported with a follow-up of 8-10 years. Conventional therapy with vitamins, steroids and/or anabolic hormones was ineffective. Regular blood transfusions were required to maintain the haemoglobin levels around 8 g/dl. Splenectomy, however, resulted in a sustained(More)

Most of the hereditary sideroblastic anaemias are inherited as x-linked recessive traits and are often pyridoxine responsive. The present paper describes the classical features of sideroblastic anaemia in 2 male and 2 female siblings of a Libyan family. All 4 children had severe anaemia and moderate hepato-splenomegaly. The equal severity of the disease in(More)
