We examine the selection and termination of investment management firms by 3,400 plan sponsors between 1994 and 2003. Plan sponsors hire investment managers after large positive excess returns but this return chasing behavior does not deliver positive excess returns thereafter. Investment managers are terminated for a variety of reasons, including but not(More)
The complications of non-tropical sprue were registered in 100 patients seen during an 18-year period. The patients had a significantly higher mortality than the age- and sex-matched general population. They had an increased incidence of malignancies, predominantly malignant lymphomas and carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract. The disease must be(More)
Small intestinal mucosa from 14 patients suffering from progressive systemic sclerosis and 22 patients with various other diseases was analysed for collagen components. There was no significant difference in the concentration of hydroxyproline, hydroxylysine and proline between the two groups. Rectal mucosa from 11 progressive systemic sclerosis patients, 5(More)
The normal mucosal surface morphology in the rectum has been described by investigation of 15 rectal biopsies using a semimacroscopic technique. The structures of the mucosal surface were rendered visible by staining the biopsies as whole mounts with Alcian Green. A regular pattern of the crypt openings was found, and the goblet cells were observed in and(More)
The present study deals with ultrastructural changes of jejunal absorptive epithelium in mucosal biopsy specimens from eleven patients with progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS). Epithelial cells showed cytoplasmic condensations with cholesterol clefts and fat droplets. Intercellular spaces of the epithelium were dilated with deposits of fat droplets, while(More)
OBJECTIVE To use a non-invasive measurement of oxygen saturation in chronic leg ulcers after the application of a topical haemoglobin spray to investigate if photoacoustic tomography is able to measure the oxygen saturation and if the stimulated oxygen increase can be demonstrated. METHOD We measured the oxygen saturation of the ulcer tissue in five(More)
Small intestinal biopsies are most often by routine examined under a stereo-microscope, prior to embedding for histological examination. This is done in order to get a view of the appearance of the mucosal pattern, especially villus configuration. The distinctness of the surface pattern however, is improved considerably if the biopsies are stained with(More)
