The rise of food security up international political, societal and academic agendas has led to increasing interest in novel means of improving primary food production and reducing waste. There are however, also many ‘post-farm gate’ activities that are critical to food security, including processing, packaging, distributing, retailing, cooking and(More)
Verapamil increases the sensitivity of primary human colorectal carcinoma tissue to vincristine The inherent resistance of human solid tumours to cancer chemotherapy is a major problem in medical oncology. Experimentally, in cell lines, the resistance phenomena studied are often induced by a process analogous to the induction of antibiotic resistance in(More)
A method is described enabling the direct measurement of vincristine resistance in intact tissues in vivo by morphological study. Using the metaphase arresting properties of the drug, counts were made of escaping anaphase and telophase mitotic figures at a range of doses. The proportion of post-metaphase mitotic figures is called the post-metaphase index(More)
BACKGROUND Military culture and workplace are areas of interest for researchers across disciplines. However, few publications on military culture exist. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to introduce general concepts regarding the structure and culture of the United States Military and discuss how this creates challenges for reintegrating into the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the location and extent of the CT hyperdense artery sign (HAS) at presentation affects response to IV alteplase in the randomized controlled Third International Stroke Trial (IST-3). METHODS All prerandomization and follow-up (24-48 hours) CT brain scans in IST-3 were assessed for HAS presence, location, and extent by(More)
Flooding in Ontario is fairly common. Recently two Ontario conservation authorities, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and the Credit Valley Conservation Authority (CVC) have developed flood forecasting models (FFMs) that process real-time radar-rainfall and leverage multiple existing HEC-RAS model datafiles. In these FFMs PCSWMM(More)

A morphological method has been developed allowing measurement of the effect on intestinal epithelia of vincristine. In routinely prepared tissue sections the proportion of mitotic events progressing beyond metaphase is counted by microscopy. When estimated over a range of doses of vincristine this post-metaphase index (PMI) can be used to compare the(More)
