These guidelines for the management of cutaneous melanoma present an evidence-based guidance for treatment, with identification of the strength of evidence available at the time of preparation of the guidelines, and a brief overview of epidemiology, diagnosis, investigation, and follow-up.
Reinvasions provide prime examples of source-sink population dynamics, and are a major reason for failure of eradications of invasive rats from protected areas. Yet little is known about the origins and population structure of the replacement population compared with the original one. We eradicated eight populations of ship rats from separate(More)
Summary These guidelines for use of narrowband (TL-01) ultraviolet B have been prepared for dermatologists by the British Photodermatology Group on behalf of the British Association of Dermatologists. They present evidence-based guidance for treatment of patients with a variety of dermatoses and photodermatoses, with identification of the strength of(More)
We describe three patients with trophic ulceration and blistering of the fingertips associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. One of the patients also had non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Autonomic neuropathy distal to the carpal tunnel was probably present in all subjects at the time of presentation; in the patient with recent symptoms the skin was(More)
We report 3 patients with persistent symptoms at vaccination sites. All were allergic to aluminium and one to thiomersal and neomycin too. Aluminium allergy causes false positive patch test reactions and we propose methods of patch testing patients with symptoms at vaccination sites in order to avoid this problem. The practical relevance of allergy to(More)
Voltage-dependent and calcium-activated K(+) (MaxiK, BK) channels are ubiquitously expressed and have various physiological roles including regulation of neurotransmitter release and smooth muscle tone. Coexpression of the pore-forming alpha (hSlo) subunit of MaxiK channels with a regulatory beta1 subunit (KCNMB1) produces noninactivating currents that are(More)
These guidelines for the management of lichen sclerosus have been prepared for dermatologists on behalf of the British Association of Dermatologists. They present evidence-based guidance for treatment, with identification of the strength of evidence available at the time of preparation of the guidelines, and a brief overview of epidemiological aspects,(More)
Our objective was to determine whether the fluorescence of skin collagen, which may reflect the accumulation of advanced glycosylation end products, is increased in young patients with type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes. Our study design was a cross-sectional case-control study in a referral-based diabetic clinic in an academic hospital. Study subjects(More)
