Tri-p-ethylphenyl phosphate is unique amongst the organophosphorus compounds which produce neurotoxic effects in not being an inhibitor of cholinesterase. The dysfunction it produces is also marked by some unusual features. Thus it produces a characteristic high-stepping gait which develops at varying periods after intramuscular injection but more regularly(More)
We have previously described the establishment of a number of cell lines from Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), also known as small cell cancer of the skin or neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. These cells, all of which grew as suspension cultures, were found to resemble small cell lung cancer (SCLC) lines types 1, 2 and 3 by their morphology and growth(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of childhood-onset (Type 1) diabetes is high, and increasing, particularly among the very young. The aim of this review was to determine the longer-term social consequences of having diabetes as a child and to determine whether adverse consequences are more severe for disadvantaged children. METHODS Results from published and(More)
BACKGROUND This paper examines (1) the accuracy of self-reported height, leg length and weight in a group of subjects aged 56-78; (2) whether recent measurement of height and weight influences the accuracy of self-reporting and (3) associations between childhood and adult height, leg length and BMI measured in old age. METHODS All 3182 surviving members(More)
Financial circumstances are a significant influence on the quality of life for older people and may be important to health and wellbeing at the end of life. The aim of this study is to review the evidence for the existence and consequences of financial stress and strain at the end of life for people dying with cancer. We conducted a systematic search of(More)
We have examined the effects of myeloid growth factors on expression of the pim-1 kinase protein in human and murine myeloid cells. pim-1 protein was identified in K562 cells by immunoblotting as a 33 kDa protein. In the human factor-dependent myeloid leukemia cell line M07E, pim-1 protein was induced by interleukin 3 (IL-3) or granulocyte-macrophage(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma prevalence rates are high, and may be increasing in the Western world, particularly among children. The aim of this study was to evaluate the longer-term social and economic consequences of having asthma as a child and to determine whether adverse consequences are more severe for poorer children. METHODS Results from published and(More)
Low employment rates of chronically ill and disabled people are of serious concern. Being out of work increases the risk of poverty and social exclusion, which may further damage the health of these groups, exacerbating health inequalities. Macro-level policies have a potentially tremendous impact on their employment chances, and these influences urgently(More)
