Analysis of the results suggested that the higher the eosinophilia the more likely were symptoms to be present, but the numbers were too small for statistical significance. Expand
Combined oral estradiol valerate-norethisterone treatment over 3 years in postmenopausal women: effect on lipids, coagulation factors, haematology and biochemistry.
The direction of lipid and coagulation factors move in competing ways, emphasising the complexity of metabolic change and making interpretation of outcome for venous and arterial thrombosis or atherosclerosis difficult to predict. Expand
Types of intra-muscular opioids for maternal pain relief in labour.
There was no evidence of a difference between pethidine and tramadol in terms of pain relief, interval to delivery, or instrumental or operative delivery. Expand

Objective To compare trabecular and compact bone response and relationship to oestrogen status using continuous oestradiol valerate 2 mg and norethisterone 0.7 mg daily as hormone replacement and toExpand
Non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs: facts and fallacies
Reports have suggested that when comparing NSAID users with non-users, there is approximately a threeto fourfold increase in risk of ulcer bleeding or perforation. Expand
Toxocariasis in Britain as revealed by skin sensitivity tests.
Pulmonary infiltration with cough, dyspnoea, or bronchospasm has been observed in suspected cases, and encephalitis with convulsions may occur during the acute phase of infection. Expand
Toxocara skin sensitivity tests and other observations in animals experimentally infected with Toxocara canis.
The intradermal test with Toxocara antigen is specific for infection with T. canis and is therefore a valuable diagnostic test, and positive reactions occurred after variable periods in the animals infected, though not in the controls. Expand
The treatment of toxocaral infection: some experimental and clinical observations.
Further Toxocara skin sensitivity tests in animals experimentally infected with Toxocara canis.
The experiment shows that the skin tests converted after infection with T. canis in experimental animals, and suggests that a positive skin reaction is seen even when other signs of helminthic infection are absent; the conversion time depends upon dosage. Expand
Evaluation of a skin sensitivity test for the diagnosis of toxocariasis.
Tese results further confirm the value and specificity of the skin test and indicate that a significant number of apparently healthy persons have been infected with toxocariasis. Expand
