BACKGROUND Laboratory and epidemiological research suggests an association between human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). We studied the natural history of incident cervical HPV infection and its relation to the development of CIN. METHODS We recruited 2011 women aged 15-19 years who had recently become sexually active.… (More)
The 5HT2 receptor has been studied using quantitative tritium film autoradiography in the postmortem frontal cortex of 15 cases suffering from major depression and controls, matched for age, gender, postmortem delay, and storage time. In unmedicated depressives there was a significant increase in 5HT2 receptor binding over matched control values.… (More)
BACKGROUND the central tenet of the neurofacilitatory approach to stroke therapy is that muscle tone needs to be normal before normal movement can occur. A reliable clinical measure of the full spectrum of muscle tone is needed to test: (i) the purported relationship between muscle tone, other motor impairments and disability, and (ii) the effectiveness of… (More)
BACKGROUND Human papillomavirus type 18 (HPV-18) is the second most frequent of the HPV types detected when squamous-cell cancer is diagnosed and the type most strongly associated with adenocarcinoma of the cervix. However, in cross-sectional studies, HPV-18 is rarely detected at the time of diagnosis of high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN).… (More)
The 5-HT(1A) receptor has been studied using quantitative tritium film auto radiography in post-mortem frontal cortex of 15 cases suffering from major depression and controls matched for age, sex, post-mortem delay and storage time. 5-HT(1A) receptor binding in the depressive cohort was not significantly different from control values. No consistent effects… (More)
A case-control comparison of adequate and inadequate cervical smears (adequacy being defined as the successful detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and inadequacy as the failure to do so when disease was almost certainly present) was undertaken to determine whether indicators of effective cytological sampling could be identified. The association… (More)
Serotonin2 (5HT2) receptors were investigated in left and right frontal cortex of clinically and neuropathologically assessed controls. No significant difference in receptor binding between hemispheres was seen.
