This study evaluated the effectiveness of early orthodontic treatment with the Twin-block appliance for the developing Class II Division 1 malocclusion. This multicenter trial was carried out in the United Kingdom. A total of 174 children, aged 8 to 10 years old, with Class II Division 1 malocclusion were randomly allocated to receive treatment with a(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of training for eclampsia in local hospitals and a regional simulation center, with and without teamwork theory. METHODS This study is a randomized controlled trial of training in local hospitals and in a simulation center in the United Kingdom. Midwives and obstetricians working at participating hospitals were(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Herbst and Twin-block appliances for established Class II Division I malocclusion. The study was a multicenter, randomized clinical trial carried out in orthodontic departments in the United Kingdom. A total of 215 patients (aged 11-14 years) were randomized to receive treatment with either the(More)

We report the final redshift release of the 6dF Galaxy Survey, a combined redshift and peculiar velocity survey over the southern sky (|b| > 10◦). Its 136 304 spectra have yielded 110 256 new extragalactic redshifts and a new catalogue of 125 071 galaxies making near-complete samples with (K, H, J, rF, bJ) 6 (12.65, 12.95, 13.75, 15.60, 16.75). The median(More)
We describe the WFCAM Science Archive (WSA), which is the primary point of access for users of data from the wide–field infrared camera WFCAM on the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT), especially science catalogue products from the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS). We describe the database design with emphasis on those aspects of the system(More)
Shoulder dystocia 'skill drills' are a requirement for the Maternity CNST standards. However, there is, as yet, no evidence that training in the management of shoulder dystocia improves outcome. We developed a mannequin for training and investigated its effectiveness. The management of shoulder dystocia improved following training with the mannequin. There(More)
The aims of this project were to evaluate whether early orthodontic treatment with the Twin-block appliance for the developing Class II Division 1 malocclusion resulted in any psychosocial benefits. This multicenter trial was carried out in the United Kingdom, with 174 children aged 8 to 10 years with Class II Division 1 malocclusions randomly allocated to(More)
Calabazas Creek Research, Inc. (CCR) is developing advanced backward wave oscillators (BW0s) operating from 300 GHz to more than 1 THz. The BWOs will be used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as local oscillator sources in heterodyne receivers for low-background astronomy observations and remote sensing. Above 100 GHz, only BWOs have(More)
Several new plasma protein biomarkers have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events. It would be of great value if sets of these markers could be measured in a multiplexed format at point-of-care settings. A major challenge is the extremely wide concentration range in which different plasma biomarkers are present. Two promising(More)
