This exploratory study compared the information needs and understanding of 25 5-10-year olds with epilepsy with those of 10 children with asthma and 10 with diabetes (of the same age range). The children were interviewed whilst attending specialist clinics by the first author and were unaware of her professional status. All the children had access to(More)
Antioxidant activity was measured in cord sera from 25 infants whose birth weights ranged from 830 to 3700 g. Antioxidant activity showed a significant positive association with birth weight. Deficiency in serum antioxidant activity may be important in the pathogenesis of certain neonatal disorders such as retinopathy of prematurity.
Eight patients rechallenged with lamotrigine after initial exposure which resulted in a skin rash are reported. On reintroduction of the lamotrigine, six of the patients had no recurrence of the rash. Of the other two patients, one had the occurrence of a mild fluctuating and qualitatively different skin rash on rechallenge. The other patient had developed(More)

Human fibroblasts possess five distinguishable systems for amino acid transport. Initial rates for three of these decline with in vitro age. The decline most noticeably affects the L system, whose rate for L-phenylalanine transport at 10 microM declines by 44% between the 27th and 39th population doubling levels. Accumulation of L-phenylalanine is similarly(More)
The aim was to critically evaluate the literature investigating strength training interventions in the treatment of plantar fasciitis and improving intrinsic foot musculature strength. A search of PubMed, CINHAL, Web of Science, SPORTSDiscus, EBSCO Academic Search Complete and PEDRO using the search terms plantar fasciitis, strength, strengthening,(More)
