An open randomized trial involving 301 subjects was conducted in order to compare the reactogenicity and immunogenicity of a new measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, SB MMR, with those of a commercial MMR vaccine, Merck MMR, when given as a second dose to children at 11-12 y of age. All subjects had previously received Merck MMR in the first year of(More)
BACKGROUND Physical activity during chemotherapy has been shown in several studies to reduce fatigue, improve symptoms and impact positively on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Challenges associated with intervention studies on physical activity during cancer treatment relate to consistent adherence. The primary objective was to study feasibility and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to explore how women with breast cancer experience physical activity (PA) during adjuvant chemotherapy treatment. METHODS This study included sixteen women diagnosed with breast cancer who had participated in a supervised 16-week PA intervention during adjuvant chemotherapy treatment. The qualitative approach included(More)
Transcranial magnetic motor evoked potentials (tcMMEP) were used to assess the functional integrity of the descending motor pathways. The tcMMEP, recorded bilaterally from anterior tibialis muscles, were evoked by an electric current induced in the motor cortex by a high-intensity transient magnetic field applied to the scalp surface. Potentials were(More)
BACKGROUND The main purpose of this study was to compare omeprazole (ome) plus two antibiotics (OMC) with omeprazole plus placebo (OP) with regard to gastric ulcer relapse for a period of 2 years in patients who were Helicobacter pylori-positive at inclusion. METHODS Using double-blind randomization 125 patients with gastric ulcer were treated with either(More)
The ability to monitor the descending motor pathways of the spinal cord during surgery is an important goal in neurophysiologic monitoring of spinal deformities. This report describes a case of a severe spinal deformity for which instrumentation and reduction carried a significant risk of neurologic complications. During the procedure, changes in neurologic(More)
Women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy suffer from a range of detrimental disease and treatment related side-effects. Exercise has shown to be able to counter some of these side-effects and improve physical function as well as quality of life. The primary aim of the study is to investigate and compare the effects of two different exercise regimens(More)
