BACKGROUND The increase in numbers of patients receiving warfarin treatment has led to the development of alternative models of service delivery for oral anticoagulant monitoring. Patient self management for oral anticoagulation is a model new to the UK. This randomised trial was the first to compare routine primary care management of oral anticoagulation(More)
AIMS To evaluate the evidence of therapeutic international normalised ratio (INR) control reporting and to provide recommendations for future reporting, particularly for research and audit purposes. METHODS A systematic review of literature published over a five year period describing therapeutic INR control. Papers were identified from the Medline(More)
BACKGROUND The demand for anticoagulation management is increasing. This has led to care being provided in non-hospital settings. While clinical studies have similarly demonstrated good clinical care in these settings, it is still unclear as to which alternative is the most efficient. AIM To determine the costs borne by patients when attending an(More)
The effectiveness of the Birmingham model of primary care oral anticoagulation management has previously been demonstrated within a randomised controlled trial. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the Birmingham model in routine care. All patients from 12 primary care centres attending either practice-based or hospital-based(More)
PURPOSE To identify the genetic basis of posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD) in families mapped to the PPCD1 locus and in affected individuals without ZEB1 coding region mutations. METHODS The promoter, 5' UTR, and coding regions of OVOL2 was screened in the PPCD family in which linkage analysis established the PPCD1 locus and in 26 PPCD(More)
PURPOSE To report potentially pathogenic mutations in the keratin 3 (KRT3) and keratin 12 (KRT12) genes in two individuals with clinically diagnosed Meesmann corneal dystrophy (MECD). METHODS Slit-lamp examination was performed on the probands and available family members to identify characteristic features of MECD. After informed consent was obtained,(More)
