A randomized controlled trial was conducted to determine whether a manual-based psychodynamic treatment, labeled dynamic deconstructive psychotherapy (DDP), would be feasible and effective for individuals with co-occurring borderline personality disorder (BPD) and alcohol use disorder. Thirty participants were assessed every 3 months during a year of(More)
The ability of ribosomal protein S8 from Escherichia coli to interact with 12 variants of its 16 S rRNA binding site, as well as with a regulatory sequence within spc operon mRNA, has been assessed. Single-site alterations were introduced into the appropriate segment of the E. coli 16 S rRNA gene by mutagenesis in vitro. Their effects on S8-rRNA interaction(More)
Proposed a 120-item version of the 208-item Category Test for adults. When the test protocols of 70 diverse Ss including 18 with definite brain impairment were scored for both the standard and short form, a very high degree of correlation (r = .95) was found, which suggests that the two forms are nearly equivalent. The application of cut-off scores (normal(More)
Dislocation is the most frequent serious complication following total hip replacement for subcapital femoral fracture. We report a prospective study, using matched groups, which compared the range of hip movement following hip replacement for arthritis and for fracture. The range of movement was significantly greater in the fracture group. We suggest that(More)
Patients who are admitted to psychiatric inpatient wards often undergo a medical screening examination in the emergency department to rule out serious or underlying medical conditions that may be better treated elsewhere. Unfortunately, prior research has been conflicting on the relative merits of various screening procedures, making it difficult to(More)
The functional significance of the stereotypical muscle activation patterns used in skilled multi-joint tasks is not well understood. Optimization methods could provide insight into the functional significance of muscle coordination. The purpose of this study was to predict muscle force patterns during cycling by pushing and pulling the pedal using(More)
In a prospective study at a single centre between August 1995 and March 1996, 193 patients with elbow injuries were studied. Standard radiographs of the elbows were taken. A total of 181 X-rays were reported by one person concerning the presence or absence of fractures and fat-pad signs. The radiographs were analysed and positive predictive values were(More)
A controlled study was undertaken to assess alexithymia and somatic amplification among 50 medical outpatients with chronic pain referred for psychiatric consultation. Data were collected on demographics; DSM-IV diagnoses; and measures of anxiety, depression, and alexithymia, assessed with the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-20), as well as somatic(More)
