Antidisialosyl antibodies were found in two out of 13 patients with chronic idiopathic ataxic neuropathy (CIAN) and not in 32 patients with different sensory neuropathies of known cause.

The authors have carried out a statistical study on two large groups of patients operated on for cataract and in whom the enzyme alph-chymotrypsin has been used, and the occurrence of ocular hypertension has been examined. One group, which contained 1,003 operations most of which were under the microscope using a firm closure technique, was compared with(More)
Of 698 cases of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), 65 cases of cardiogenic shock underwent haemodynamic study. 25 cases had pulmonary capillary pressures (PCP) less than 14 mmHg, 15 of which responded favourably to vascular filling. None of these cases died in a state of shock. In comparison with cardiogenic shock with PCP equal to or greater than 14 mmHg,(More)
