We have investigated whether sexual maturation in female rats is affected by repeated flurothyl-induced convulsions. This treatment had no effect on the normal age-related increase in body weight though puberty (vaginal opening) was significantly delayed when compared with non-convulsed control rats. In an attempt to probe the mechanism of this delaying(More)
Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy is a late-onset, autosomally dominant disorder characterized by progressive ptosis, dysphagia, and extremity weakness. Linkage of oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy to 14q11.2-q13 has been reported in a series of French Canadian families. Haplotype analysis in these data shows a single segregating disease chromosome,(More)
Future Care Planning (FCP) rarely occurs in patients with heart disease until close to death by which time the potential benefits are lost. We assessed the feasibility, acceptability and tested a design of a randomised trial evaluating the impact of FCP in patients and carers. 50 patients hospitalised with acute heart failure or acute coronary syndrome and(More)
Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a late-onset, autosomal dominant disorder characterized by progressive ptosis, dysphagia, and extremity weakness. Linkage of OPMD to 14q11.2-q13 has been reported in a series of French-Canadian families. Tightly linked markers have been defined and haplotype analysis in these data show a single segregating(More)
