Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is caused by germline mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene. Two promoters, 1A and 1B, have been recognized in APC, and 1B is thought to have a minor role in the regulation of the gene. We have identified a novel deletion encompassing half of this promoter in the largest family (Family 1) of the Swedish(More)
In a double-blind investigation of 54 patients suffering from acne vulgaris, the effect of 0.6 g of oral zinc sulphate daily versus placebo was studied. During the active treatment period of 6 weeks, the acne improved by about one-third, as rated with a score system. Clinical comparison with placebo showed the result of zinc sulphate therapy to be slightly,(More)
Various methods for clinical evaluation of the effect of treatment of acne vulgaris have been studied. Counting of acne lesions was found to be more sensitive than the opinion of the patients and the assessment of colour photographs. The correlation between the results obtained by lesion counts and evaluation by photographs was low, as was also the(More)
Biomass gasification with steam in a DFBG (dual fluidized bed gasifier) was simulated with ASPEN Plus. From the model, the yield and composition of the syngas, and the contents of tar and char can be calculated. The model has been evaluated against the experimental results measured on a 150 KWth MIUN (Mid Sweden University) DFBG. The model predicts that the(More)
The relationship between HLA factors and allergic contact dermatitis was examined in a series of 149 patients with unequivocal positive reactions to one or several allergens on epicutaneous testing. Nine statistically significant associations involving 6 different HLA antigens and 6 different allergens were found. Four allergens (chromium, formalin, balsam(More)
Self-inflicted skin lesions (pathomimia, artefacts) can be produced in a variety of ways, by the help of nails, razor blades, cigarettes, chemicals, etc. The present study reports three cases of pathomimia, in which the lesions consisted of vesicles or bullae producted by friction. Friction blisters can easily be produced in sites where the epidermis is(More)
