The diversity of pathogenetic mechanisms involved in posttraumatic visual impairment was reviewed in a study of the hospital records of 24 patients admitted with multiple injuries. Most major visual abnormalities occurred in young people (average age 33 years) who presented with a wide range of overall severity of injury (injury severity score 13-47) and(More)
6,021 40-year-old and older chronic asthma suffers, seen during the past 20 years, were analyzed with regard to the development of primary lung cancer and their smoking habits. Over this period only two developed lung cancer, 0.032% as compared with 0.314% in the general population. Only 16.9% of chronic asthmatics had smoked over any significant period(More)
Parameters of humoral and cellular immunity have been measured in 91 asthmatic patients. Mean serum levels of IgG and IgE were raised. IgG levels were higher in those with a family history of asthma. IgE levels were higher in those with a past history of atopic eczema, but intrinsic and extrinsic asthma could not be differentiated on the basis of IgE(More)
The in vitro autoradiographic distribution of calcium channel antagonist binding sites for 1,4-dihydropyridine and phenylalkylamine has been investigated in rat, guinea pig and human brain. 1,4-dihydropyridine ([3H] (+) PN200-110) and phenylalkylamine ([3H] (-) D-888) binding sites are identically distributed in the brain of the three mammalian species(More)
