The documentation of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in the skeletally immature athlete has significantly increased over the past decade, primarily due to increased awareness of these injuries within this younger athletic population. The evaluation of these injuries are similar to that in the adult population. Diagnostic studies such as plain(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether equity exists in access to renal transplantation in the UK after adjustment for case mix in incident patients with end stage renal disease. DESIGN Longitudinal cohort study. SETTING UK Renal Registry and UK Transplant Registry. PARTICIPANTS All incident renal replacement treatment patients (n=16 202) from 65 renal centres(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the source of infections associated with orthopaedic prostheses. DESIGN Analysis of four infections of prosthetic joints with case records; minimum inhibitory and minimum bactericidal concentrations and sodium dodecylsulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of the cell wall polypeptides of the Streptococcus sanguis isolates(More)
We have investigated the use of a variety of different techniques to identify as many proteins as possible in a yeast lysate, with the aim of investigating the overlap and complementarity of data from different approaches. A standard lysate was prepared from log phase yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). This was then subjected to analysis via five different(More)
Crosses of a wheat line TP1295 with the cultivar Chinese Spring monosomic series were used to locate, on chromosome 1D, a major gene for resistance to isolate WYR 85-22 of race 6E0 of Puccinia striiformis. The gene is designated as Yr25 and is probably present in several of the cultivars currently widely used for differentiating races of this pathogen. The(More)
Between October 1979 and January 1982, a total of 39 cases were entered on a nonrandomized phase I-II protocol for the evaluation of misonidazole combined with radiation in the treatment of patients with advanced pelvic malignancies of multiple gynecological and gastrointestinal origin. Patients were treated with pelvic irradiation using a dose of 1000 rad(More)
To the authors' knowledge, there is a paucity of published accounts of management of radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RION) by optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF) in the conventional medical literature. With higher doses of radiation being given by using conformal techniques, more radiation-induced optic neuritis and neuropathy will be identified. We(More)
BACKGROUND Guidelines are lacking for prophylaxis against D alloimmunization after D-incompatible platelet transfusion. A rational basis for the application of prophylaxis would be beneficial for institutions in which inventory constraints demand the administration of large numbers of D-incompatible platelets. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS A retrospective(More)
