BACKGROUND Erythropoietin might have neurocytoprotective effects. In this trial, we studied its effect on neurological recovery, mortality, and venous thrombotic events in patients with traumatic brain injury. METHODS Erythropoietin in Traumatic Brain Injury (EPO-TBI) was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial undertaken in 29 centres (all(More)
BACKGROUND The Erythropoietin in Traumatic Brain Injury (EPO-TBI) trial aims to determine whether the administration of erythropoietin to patients with moderate or severe traumatic brain injury improves patient-centred outcomes. METHODS EPO-TBI is a multicentre, blinded, randomised, parallel groups, placebo-controlled, phase III superiority trial of(More)
BACKGROUND Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Laboratory and clinical studies demonstrate a possible beneficial effect of erythropoietin in improving outcomes in the traumatic brain injury cohort. However, there are concerns regarding the association of erythropoietin and thrombosis in the critically ill. A(More)
Eight patients and eight age matched controls were recruited to study parameters related to plasma lipoprotein metabolism in Alzheimer's disease based on previous studies in Down's syndrome (A.G. Lacko et al., Clin. Chim. Acta, 132 (1983) 133). The fractional rate of cholesterol esterification (% cholesterol esterified per hour) was 16% lower in the patient(More)
INTRODUCTION Solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) are common on CT. The most cost-effective investigation algorithm is still to be determined. Dynamic contrast-enhanced CT (DCE-CT) is an established diagnostic test not widely available in the UK currently. METHODS AND ANALYSIS The SPUtNIk study will assess the diagnostic accuracy, clinical utility and(More)
