Most studies that have set out to quantify the test–retest reliability of the multi-stage shuttle run test (MSSRT) have typically used inappropriate statistics (correlation coefficients) and/or one of two possible calculation methods for deriving predictions of maximal oxygen uptake $$ (\ifmmode\expandafter\dot\else\expandafter\.\fi{V}{\text{O}}_{{2\max }}(More)
Video imaging is an important emerging technology in planning orthognathic surgery and educating patients about the esthetic effects of treatment. The presurgical cephalograms of 56 patients, 41 with mandibular advancement alone and 15 with mandibular advancement plus genioplasty, were digitized, and the computer-generated soft tissue "line drawing"(More)
170 symptom-free homosexual men were recruited in London in 1982-83 and 133 were evaluable in 1983-85. Of the 33 who were seropositive to HTLV-III/LAV at entry, 4 (12%) progressed to AIDS, 16 (48%) progressed to persistent generalised lymphadenopathy (PGL), and 13 (40%) remained symptom-free. A further 15 men seroconverted during the study (7% per annum),(More)
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia type II is a severe complication of heparin treatment that may result in thrombosis. When thrombosis occurs it carries a 50% mortality rate. The exact pathophysiology is not fully understood but in the majority of cases it is associated with the production of heparin/platelet factor 4 antibodies. The endothelium provides a(More)
T and B cell function, in particular IgD production in vitro, were studied across the spectrum of HIV infection in homosexual men and compared with seronegative homosexual and heterosexual male controls. Proliferation to phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) was reduced most strikingly in symptomatic HIV infection; it was also impaired in HIV seronegative homosexual(More)
