PURPOSE Treatment options for patients with overactive bladder refractory to anticholinergics are limited. We assessed the dose response across a range of doses of onabotulinumtoxinA (BOTOX®) in patients with idiopathic overactive bladder and urinary urgency incontinence whose symptoms were not adequately managed with anticholinergics. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess in a phase 3a trial the efficacy of solifenacin succinate, a once-daily oral antimuscarinic agent in development at 5-mg and 10-mg dosage strengths, for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) (Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd, Tokyo, Japan) compared with placebo in patients with symptoms of OAB, i.e. urgency, incontinence, and(More)
PURPOSE We determined the safety and efficacy of each of 2 doses of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) (200 or 300 U BOTOX) injected into the detrusor for urinary incontinence caused by neurogenic detrusor overactivity of predominantly spinal cord origin. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 59 patients with urinary incontinence caused by neurogenic detrusor(More)
In January 1999, 500 tons of feed contaminated with approximately 50 kg of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and 1 g of dioxins were distributed to animal farms in Belgium, and to a lesser extent in the Netherlands, France, and Germany. This study was based on 20,491 samples collected in the database of the Belgian federal ministries from animal feed,(More)
Despite the success of adsorption and thermal incineration of (C)VOC emissions, there is still a need for research on techniques which are both economically more favorable and actually destroy the pollutants rather than merely remove them for recycling elsewhere in the biosphere. The catalytic destruction of (C)VOC to CO2, H2O and HCl/Cl2 appears very(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the performance of SpeediCath hydrophilic-coated catheters versus uncoated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) catheters, in traumatic spinal cord injured patients presenting with functional neurogenic bladder-sphincter disorders. METHODS A 1-year, prospective, open, parallel, comparative, randomised, multi centre study included 123 male(More)
The paper assesses extensive data of PCDD/F measurements on flue gas emissions from thermal processes, including, e.g. municipal solid waste incinerators (MSWIs), combustors of wood and industrial waste, coal fired powerplants and boilers, ferro and non-ferro processes. Numerous investigators have conducted laboratory experiments to assess the formation(More)
BACKGROUND The authors studied the effects of ketamine and rocuronium on the Bispectral Index, A-Line auditory evoked potential index, state entropy, and response entropy during a calculated steady state anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil. METHODS After ethics committee approval, 42 patients were allocated to four groups. Baseline measurements were(More)
This review article reflects the presentations and subsequent discussions during a think tank at the 5th International Consultation on Incontinence Research Society's annual meeting, held in Bristol, UK (September 22-24, 2014). It reviews the current state of knowledge on the role of hormones in lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) and overactive bladder(More)
The aetiology of azoospermia can be grossly divided into obstructive and non-obstructive causes. Although in both cases testicular spermatozoa can be used to treat male fertility, it is not well established whether success rates following intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are comparable. Therefore, a retrospective analysis of fertilization, pregnancy(More)
