A significant linear correlation was found between increase in corneal thickness (delta CT) in the immediate postoperative period and percentage of cell loss one and six months after surgery in a prospective study on cataract surgery. Eyes were grouped according to delta CT, and the groups were compared according to the percentage of cell loss. Eyes with(More)
One hundred and forty-eight adults with immune thrombocytopenia attending a single institution between 1971 and 1981 were analysed retrospectively and observed for a minimum of three years. Prednisone was administered to 134 patients (90 per cent) in whom a peak platelet count occurred at a median of eight days, at which time four distinct patterns of(More)
One hundred therapeutic plasmaphereses were carried out at biweekly intervals in seven patients, without morbidity or mortality, using the IBM 2997 blood fraction separator. In standardised procedures, 1.5 times the calculated plasma volume was replaced with an electrolyte solution containing 4% salt-free human albumin. Anticoagulation was achieved using a(More)
Iron absorption was directly compared between equivalent doses of ferrous salts and a polymaltose complex using a twin-isotope technique in which each individual acts as his own control. In the first study, bioavailability of iron from ferrous sulfate and the complex was defined at physiologic doses of 5 mg (Group 1: n = 14) and therapeutic doses of 50 mg(More)
BACKGROUND Advances in medical abortion might allow women seeking early abortions to terminate their pregnancies safely and effectively without medical supervision. We investigated whether such women can calculate pregnancy duration accurately, a key step in unsupervised use. METHODS 422 women seeking first-trimester abortions in two clinics (Pune, India,(More)
The urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) plays an important role in the migration of leukocytes. It occurs as a membrane-bound form that contains a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor and also as a soluble form (suPAR) that lacks the GPI anchor. Recently, a sequence of amino acids, SRSRYLE, within the receptor has been found to become(More)
A 35-year-old woman with post-splenectomy refractory immune thrombocytopenia presented with an acute abdominal emergency requiring laparotomy. Her platelet count was raised from 10 to 96 X 10(9)/l using a combination of high-dose methylprednisolone, plasma exchange against fresh-frozen plasma, infusion of gammaglobulin and a single mega-unit of platelets.(More)
Elliptic flow from nuclear collisions is a hadronic observable sensitive to the early stages of system evolution. We report first results on elliptic flow of charged particles at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at square root(S)NN = 130 GeV using the STAR Time Projection Chamber at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. The elliptic flow signal, v2, averaged(More)
