BACKGROUND Interleukin 6 mediates graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in experimental allogeneic stem-cell transplantation (allogeneic SCT) and represents an attractive therapeutic target. We aimed to assess whether the humanised anti-interleukin-6 receptor monoclonal antibody, tocilizumab, could attenuate the incidence of acute GVHD. METHODS We undertook a(More)
Dislocations and fracture-dislocations of the tarsometatarsal joints, fractures of the base of the fifth metatarsal bone, fractures of the shafts and necks of the metatarsal bones, dislocations of the metatarsophalangeal joints, fractures of the phalanges and dislocations of the interphalangeal joints each have a specific mechanism of injury, characteristic(More)
The University of Cincinnati has reproduced the original formulation for the Livermore Thoracic Phantom lungs using contemporary materials and has adopted the linear attenuation coefficient as the primary quality assurance parameter for evaluating the performance capabilities of these new lung phantoms. The Livermore Thoracic Phantom was originally(More)
Treatment of displaced femoral neck fractures remains a problem. Routine prosthetic replacement is controversial. Review of 100 patients treated at the Campbell Clinic from 1957 to 1966 suggests that 60% long-term good results can be anticipated at a cost of 5% mortality and 25% morbidity. We believe prosthetic replacement probably should be restricted to(More)
Ninety-one sets of polytomograms were analyzed for diagnosis and treatment of 123 patients with cervical spine injuries. Pluridirectional polytomographis is valuable in evaluation of acute cervical spine injuries when the findings on plain roentgenograms do not correlate well with the clinical symptoms and signs. The polytomographic study had a dramatic(More)
Patients with symptomatic aortic valve disease who are inoperable or have high surgery-related risks may be treated with transcatheter aortic valve implantation devices. With this method increasingly applied, device innovations are aimed at achieving improved procedural results and therapeutic outcome. This paper describes the innovations implemented in the(More)
