There are signs – one is world university league tables – that people increasingly think globally when choosing the university in which they wish to work and study. This paper is an exploration of data on the international brain drain. We study highly-cited physicists, highly-cited bio-scientists, and assistant professors of economics. First, we demonstrate(More)
The clinical presentation of three patients with meningiomas at different frontal sites is described. They had been ill for 3, 25, and 43 years before the tumour was demonstrated radiologically. Apathy, incontinence, dementia, and fits were seen in association with middle and superior frontal lesions, and may be mistaken for symptoms of involutional(More)
A study to determine the reliability of a recently described test, the faecal human haemoglobin test (FHH), specific for human blood, in the detection of colorectal neoplasia, is reported. All of nineteen patients with proven cancers studied were shown to have detectable blood in the stools. Three of five patients with polyps in this series also had(More)
A group of 1615 asymptomatic individuals presumed to be at increased risk of colorectal neoplasia were selected as the study group. All were tested by an immunochemical test for faecal occult blood. In the second half of the study, individuals who were occult blood negative were offered colonoscopy. Ninety-nine individuals (6.1%) returned stools which were(More)
The results of a screening programme for colorectal neoplasia in a high risk group using an immunochemical test for blood has been reported recently. This test is known as the faecal human haemoglobin (FHH) test. This paper reports the results of rescreening this group after an interval of 1-2 years. The FHH test was compared with a paper disc method. All(More)
It is now widely accepted that malignant tumours of the colon and rectum almost invariably arise from pre-existing adenomatous polyps. If such polyps could be detected and removed colonoscopically before they become malignant, theoretically the incidence of invasive colorectal cancer could be dramatically reduced. The purpose of this study was to determine(More)
