High plasma homocyst(e)ine (Hcy) concentrations may be a determinant of coronary artery disease (CAD). Folate and vitamin B-12 are required for the primary metabolic pathway to reduce Hcy concentrations. The interrelationships of Hcy and these two vitamin cofactors were investigated in a case-control study of 101 white males aged 30-50 y with(More)
Systemic and non-systemic fungicides, applied to tubers after harvest as dust and dips, were screened for their effectiveness in controlling gangrene (caused byPhoma exigua var.foveata) in storage, and their ability to improve the health of progeny tubers. Thiabendazole, benomyl and fuberidazole were the most effective of the chemicals tested. In storage(More)
We describe our experience in using live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3D TTE) in the assessment of five adult patients with Ebstein's anomaly. The technique was found useful in assessing the distribution and extent of tethering of each of the three leaflets of the tricuspid valve (TV) to the underlying right ventricular walls(More)
The potential of tubers to develop gangrene, assessed as disease incidence following wounding and cool storage, was often lowest when tubers were harvested on the day of haulm destruction and almost invariably increased as the period before harvest was extended. The time and size of the increase varied between experiments and in one of four relationships(More)
