Predisposing factors were sought in 118 patients who developed adverse drug reactions in hospital. Significantly more patients of 60 years and over, and more women than men, developed adverse drug reactions. Patients with reactions had more drugs before the development of the reaction than patients who did not develop reactions. A previous adverse drug(More)
A total of 1,268 patients admitted to hospital wards were kept under surveillance by one observer throughout their stay in hospital. All drugs given to them and the occurrence of adverse reactions were recorded.Drug reactions were found in 10.2% of the 1,160 patients who received drug therapy. Most reactions were due to known pharmacological actions of the(More)
Although both Ras1 and Ras2 activate adenylyl cyclase in yeast, a number of differences can be observed regarding their function in the cAMP pathway. To explore the relative contribution of conserved and variable domains in determining these differences, chimeric RAS1-RAS2 or RAS2-RAS1 genes were constructed by swapping the sequences encoding the variable(More)
OBJECTIVES The paper reviews the development of the application of telepathology in a department of surgical pathology between 1991 and 2003. The goal of the efforts during this time was to give up the concept of programming a single application, available only between two fixed workstations with sophisticated devices and special software, and to find the(More)
The tissues of 16 patients bearing a T-cell lymphoma of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy type (AILD-TCL) were investigated for the distribution of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) subtypes 1 and 2. EBV-association had been proven in these cases by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for EBV-DNA, in situ hybridization (ISH) for EBV-encoded small nuclear RNAs (EBER)(More)
Approximately 30 000 cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) occur in the equatorial belt of Africa each year. Apart from the fact that Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is very common among children and adolescents in Africa and that an epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is currently ongoing in this part of the world, very little is known about(More)
We delineated in rats, the relationship between trypsin inhibitory activity in the urine and the nephrotoxic effects of gentamicin, eg, proteinuria and deterioration of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), measured by creatinine clearance. Gentamicin, 70 mg/kg per day, was injected intraperitoneally for 6-10 successive days. Serum and urine gentamicin levels(More)
Interleukin-12 (IL-12), a cytokine with in vitro and in vivo immunomodulatory effects, is produced by lymphocytes and stimulated monocytes. Little is known about the production and possible role of IL-12 in human lymphoproliferative disorders. We examined IL-12 expression by immunohistochemistry using antibodies recognizing the p40, p35 subunits, and the(More)
In a survey of adverse drug reactions in wards of two Belfast hospitals for 52 weeks in 1965-6, 2.9% of 1,268 patients seen were admitted to hospital because of adverse reactions to drugs taken for therapeutic reasons and 2.1% were admitted because of self-poisoning. Patients admitted because of adverse drug reactions were older than those admitted because(More)
CONTEXT Minimal residual disease (MRD) in patients treated for hairy cell (HC) leukemia as assessed by immunohistochemistry has not been included routinely in evaluation of treatment results. OBJECTIVE To assess the presence of persistent HCs after treatment, as detected by immunohistochemistry, and to evaluate the correlation between the level of MRD and(More)
