From November, 1985, to June, 1988, 1007 outpatients with chronic non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF) entered a randomised trial; 335 received anticoagulation with warfarin openly, and in a double-blind study 336 received aspirin 75 mg once daily and 336 placebo. Each patient was followed up for 2 years or until termination of the trial. The primary(More)
When including clinical mastitis in the breeding goal, it is useful to know what measure of the trait is most appropriate and its relationship to the primary production traits and indicator traits in the relevant population. In this paper, genetic and phenotypic parameters for clinical mastitis, somatic cell production deviance, and protein yield were(More)
A Working Group of the European Group for the Evaluation of Reagents and Analytical Systems in Laboratory Medicine proposes, after detailed study of the advantages and disadvantages of available strategies, the following quality specifications for analytical systems for clinical chemistry. Total imprecision should be: (a) less than one-half of the average(More)
Atrial fibrillation limits the ability to increase cardiac output during exercise and may, in turn, affect the exercise-associated elevation in cerebral perfusion. In nine patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and in five age-matched healthy subjects, middle cerebral artery blood velocity (MCA Vmean) was measured during incremental exercise using the(More)
Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with 99mTc-d,l-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (99mTc-d,l-HMPAO) was used to determine global and regional CBF in 53 healthy subjects aged 21-83 years. For the whole group, global CBF normalized to the cerebellum was 86.4% +/- 8.4 (SD). The contribution of age, sex, and atrophy to variations in global CBF(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a methodology for translating the McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ) into a Danish version, and to make comparisons to studies of patients speaking other languages. DESIGN Finding suitable Danish adjectives using the same methodology as that in the original MPQ. Comparison of Danish descriptors to the words in the English version of MPQ.(More)
The release in 1993 of a new reference material for serum proteins, CRM 470/RPPHS 5 has given rise to a great improvement in the between-laboratory variability of serum protein measurements worldwide. Conversion to the new reference material results in significant changes in reference values for some proteins. The establishment of new reference ranges will(More)
The influence of trimethoprim on renal function has been investigated in two groups of volunteers, both without a history of either acute or chronic urinary tract disease. All had normal serum creatinine. They were treated with trimethoprim 200 mg bd for 14 days. In group A (median age 78 years), serum creatinine increased significantly from median 89 to(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the efficacy of warfarin sodium therapy for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, many physicians hesitate to prescribe it to elderly patients because of the risk for bleeding complications and because of inconvenience for the patients. METHODS The Second Copenhagen Atrial Fibrillation, Aspirin, and Anticoagulation Study was a(More)
We studied sequence variation of a fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and direct sequencing of 109 Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) from the Baltic and 19 cod from the White Sea. Eight nucleotide substitutions define 12 haplotypes differing from each other by one to six substitutions. All mutations are at silent(More)
