In a large case-control study of Swedish incident type I diabetes patients and controls, 0-34 years of age, we tested the hypothesis that the GIMAP5 gene, a key genetic factor for lymphopenia in spontaneous BioBreeding rat diabetes, is associated with type I diabetes; with islet autoantibodies in incident type I diabetes patients or with age at clinical(More)
Hydroxyapatite (HA), a natural constituent of bone, was studied as a particulate carrier for beta-emitting radionuclides in radiation synovectomy. Particles were radiolabeled with 153Sm or 186Re and their in vivo safety was investigated following intra-articular injection into knees of normal rabbits and rabbits with antigen-induced arthritis (AIA).(More)
Rhenium-186 (tin)hydroxyethylidene diphosphonate (HEDP) is a new radiopharmaceutical that localizes in skeletal metastases in patients with advanced cancer. A single intravenous administration of approximately 34 mCi (1,258 MBq) resulted in significant improvement in pain in 33 of 43 evaluable patients (77%) following the initial injection, and in 7 of 14(More)
Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) have sensory processing deficits; how do these influence the interface between sensory input and motor performance? Previously, we found that children with DCD were less able to organize and maintain a gross motor coordination task in time to an auditory cue, particularly at higher frequencies(More)
The single nucleotide polymorphism 1858C>T in the PTPN22 gene is associated with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in several populations. Earlier reports have suggested that the association may be modified by human leukocyte antigen (HLA), as well as by islet autoantibodies. In a large case-control study of Swedish incident T1D patients and controls, 0-34 years of(More)
Radiation synovectomy is a potential weapon in the therapeutic armamentarium of nuclear medicine. It is an attractive alternative to surgical or chemical synovectomy for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. In this article the clinical results obtained with radiation synovectomy from the 1950s through 1992 are summarized and reviewed. Even after taking(More)
UNLABELLED Overexpression of the multidrug resistance (MDR1) P-glycoprotein (Pgp) correlates with cancer chemotherapeutic failure. Lipophilic cationic radiopharmaceuticals such as 99mTc-sestamibi, 99mTc-tetrofosmin and 99Tc-furifosmin (Tc-Q12) have been validated as transport substrates for the MDR1 Pgp and may enable functional imaging of the MDR phenotype(More)
Limited joint mobility (LJM) of the ankle joint was measured in 48 diabetic patients classified into three groups: Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM = 15), non-insulin diabetes mellitus (NIDDM = 12) and patients with cutaneous sensory deficit in the foot (CD = 21). Specifically, plantar flexion, dorsiflexion and total range of motion was measured on(More)
