Methanol (MeOH), a widely used industrial solvent, has been proposed as an alternative motor vehicle fuel. Inhaled MeOH is developmentally toxic in both rats and mice but the mouse is more sensitive than is the rat. The contribution of the embryo to this differential sensitivity was studied in whole embryo culture (WEC) using equivalent stage rat (day 9)(More)
OBJECTIVES To develop an interprofessional simulated ward environment for junior medical and nursing students and to identify themes for future evaluations and modify criteria for formative assessment of the exercise. SUBJECTS Second year medical and nursing students. SETTING The multiprofessional Clinical Skills Centre at the Faculty of Medicine, and(More)
This study evaluated the tolerance and potential pharmacokinetic interactions between clarithromycin (500 mg every 12 h) and rifabutin (300 mg daily) in clinically stable human immunodeficiency virus-infected volunteers with CD4 counts of <200 cells/mm3. Thirty-four subjects were randomized equally to either regimen A or regimen B. On days 1 to 14, subjects(More)
This multicenter study evaluated the tolerance and potential pharmacokinetic interactions between azithromycin and rifabutin in volunteers with or without human immunodeficiency virus infection. Daily dosing with the combination of azithromycin and rifabutin was poorly tolerated, primarily because of gastrointestinal symptoms and neutropenia. No significant(More)
Fifty-one cases of cervical spinal cord injury were reviewed. The importance of the immediate comprehensive care after onset may be achieved successfully even in a General Traumatology Centre. The great majority of these patients were treated by orthopaedic methods as far as their vertebral injury was concerned. Mortality related to the spinal cord injury(More)
The chlorination of drinking water results in production of numerous disinfection by-products (DBPs). One of the important classes of DBPs is the haloacetic acids. We have previously shown that the haloacetic acids (HAs), dichloro (DCA), dibromo (DBA) and bromochloro (BCA) acetic acid are developmentally toxic in mouse whole embryo culture. Human exposure(More)
