The clinical and pathological features of 63 steroid cell tumors, not otherwise specified, were reviewed. The patients ranged in age from 2 1/2 to 80 years. The most common initial manifestation was virilization (41%); four patients had estrogenic manifestations, and four had hypercortisolemia with Cushing's syndrome. The tumors, 6% of which were bilateral,(More)
The essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an effective cytotoxic agent when applied topically and for prolonged periods to tumour cells. Topical application, by intravesical therapy, is firmly established in the treatment of superficial bladder cancer. However, this form of therapy is limited to a maximum duration of 2 h. At such a short drug(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether fetal heart rate in early and late pregnancy relates to size at birth. DESIGN Prospective study of fetal heart rates in early and late pregnancy. SETTING Princess Anne Hospital, Southampton. SUBJECTS 63 primigravid women. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Anthropometric measurements made on the newborn infant. RESULTS There were no(More)
Adult testicular dermoid tumours are rare tumours with no reported potential for recurrent or metastatic spread. Despite this they are currently classified as mature teratoma and managed as if they have equivalent malignant potential. This report describes two cases of adult mature teratoma of dermoid type and questions the classification and pathogenesis(More)
Fisheries resources in the Caribbean suffer intense pressure from overharvesting. Some of the most valuable fisheries in The Bahamas, such as queen conch (Strombus gigas), spiny lobster (Panulirus argus), and Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus), are overexploited and require additional protection. Despite these pressures, we currently know very little(More)
The clinical and pathological features of 25 stromal luteomas were reviewed. The patients ranged in age from 28-74 (average 58.4) years. The most common initial manifestation (60%) was abnormal vaginal bleeding; three patients (12%) were virilized. The tumors, only one of which was bilateral, ranged from 0.25-2.9 (average 1.3) cm in greatest diameter. They(More)
Idarubicin is a highly lipophilic anthracycline and appears effective against tumours resistant to conventional anthracyclines. Confocal microscopy demonstrates predominantly cytoplasmic idarubicin accumulation. This distribution is unaltered by resistance status or the resistance reversing agent verapamil. Our results contrast with studies on conventional(More)
One hundred children put on a gluten free diet because of suspected coeliac disease were followed for a mean period of 9.9 years. The diagnosis was eventually confirmed in 53. Under the age of two, 35 children showed subtotal villous atrophy in their initial biopsy but nine of these on subsequent gluten challenge and rebiopsy were found to tolerate gluten(More)
In a prospective study of 79 acute admissions of elderly patients to a Geriatric Unit, elevated alkaline phosphatase levels were commonly associated with the presence of extrahepatic bacterial infections. The changes were attributed to alkaline phosphatase liver isoenzymes. There was no significant change in aspartate transaminase levels or in bilirubin(More)
