Serum C-peptide levels were normal during the test, but the insulin response which was initially normal(More)
From their own experience of the simultaneous immunonephelometry of eight serum proteins, the authors propose a definition of protein profile from the point of view both of laboratory technique and interpretation. The assay should be performed quickly and the results expressed diagrammatically in normalised values, in such a way that the relative variation(More)
It is well established that the cortical processing of somatosensory and auditory signals is attenuated when they result from self-generated actions compared with external events. This phenomenon is thought to result from an efference copy of motor commands used to predict the sensory consequences of an action through a forward model. The present work(More)

The intravenous urogram demonstrated characteristic features of the condition. Initial symptoms were polyuria, urinary salt loss and haematuria, but the only residual abnormality was a mild defect in urinary concentrating ability.
