PURPOSE The objective was to systematically review clinical trial data on the effects of statins on high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and to examine the possibility that this provides cardiovascular benefits in addition to those derived from reductions in low-density lipoproteins (LDL). METHODS The PubMed database was searched for publications describing(More)
BACKGROUND The complex pathology of disease has sparked the development of novel protein expression profiling techniques that require validation in clinical settings. This study focuses on multiplexed analyses of adipocytokines and biomarkers linked to the metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. METHODS Multiplexed immunoassays using(More)
A study of testicular histology has been made in 44 boys treated with combination chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. At the time of testicular biopsy 21 boys were still receiving cytotoxic drugs and 23 had completed their chemotherapy some time earlier. Evidence of leukaemic infiltration was seen in 5 (11%), interstitial fibrosis in 24 (55%),(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence-based randomized clinical trials have shown significant benefit of statin treatment with regard to cardiovascular disease. In anticipation of the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel IV guidelines, we wanted to assess the current state of lipid goal attainment in the high-risk secondary prevention population in(More)
Germline mutations within a defined region of the p53 gene have recently been found in families with the Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS). In the present study this region of p53 was sequenced in affected individuals from 8 families with LFS. In only 2 of them were such mutations detected. Our findings suggest that the p53 mutation could be the primary lesion in(More)
BACKGROUND Hypothermia related to anaesthesia and operating theatre environment is associated with increased blood loss in a number of surgical disciplines, including total hip arthroplasty. The influence of patient temperature on blood loss in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has not been previously studied. METHODS We recorded patient axillary temperature(More)
