OBJECTIVES Using a prospective cohort study design, to establish the incidence and nature of time-loss injuries in English community rugby and to assess the differences between different playing levels. SETTING English community rugby clubs. PARTICIPANTS Injury information for 4635 matches was collected during seasons 2009/2010 (46 clubs), 2010/2011(67(More)
The spatial and temporal distribution of apoptosis in the dorsal midline of the developing chick hindbrain was examined in relation to the development of the neuroepithelium and neural crest using scanning and transmission electron microscopy, immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization. The pattern of TUNEL labeling and Slug expression in the dorsal(More)
PC12 cells were grown in monolayer cultures either as untreated controls or treated with (1) NGF, (2) mitomycin C/BUdR, or (3) a combination of NGF and mitomycin C/BUdR. The cells from these four groups were processed for scanning and transmission electron microscopy and for fluorescence histochemistry. With scanning electron microscopy, the control and(More)
Cranial neural fold fusion in the chick embryo is known to commence in the midbrain region before progressing cranially and caudally to involve the fore- and hindbrain regions, respectively. The two epithelial layers at the tips of the neural folds that participate in fusion are the surface ectoderm and the neuroepithelium. We have examined and compared(More)
The endoderm of gastrulating chick embryos shows regional variations in cell shape and size. These were studied by scanning electron microscopy, histochemistry and immunofluorescence. Particular attention was given to the distribution of the cytoskeleton. Four zones of differing morphology were observed. The changing size and shape of these zones could be(More)
Palatogenesis was studied in the ferret (Mustela putorius) from day 27 to day 29 of gestation. At day 27 the primary palate is present as a flattened shield area, and the two secondary palatal shelves are directed at 45 degrees to the horizontal plane, passing downward on the lateral sides of the tongue, which occupies the space between them. By day 28 the(More)
