In an effort to identify psoriasis-associated genes, we compared gene expression in normal and psoriatic skin, using differential display RT-PCR technique. Sequence analysis of a 650-bp cDNA fragment (clone 110) that was highly up-regulated in lesional skin revealed homology to a noncoding cDNA (NICE-2). By subsequent cDNA cloning, using RNA from psoriatic(More)
PURPOSE Different techniques, including clips, have been used to close the stump in laparoscopic appendectomy. The aim was to investigate the results after application of a newly developed titanium clip for this operation. METHODS From June 2008 to February 2010, 104 patients from two different hospitals undergoing laparoscopic appendectomy were included(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the long-term consequences of head injury resulting from police reported tow-away motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. in 1993. The results are presented in terms of the Functional Capacity Index (FCI), which quantifies the relative functional capacity of a previously healthy adult 1 year postinjury, and Life-years Lost(More)
