In a randomized multicenter therapeutic trial, 32 patients with erythema migrans received oral azithromycin 500 mg once daily and 33 patients received phenoxymethylpenicillin (penicillin V) 1 million U three times daily for 10 days. Follow-up was for a median of 17 (range 3-32) months. Four weeks after initiation of therapy, 20 (62%) patients given(More)
In a prospective randomized multicenter trial for the therapy of erythema migrans, 40 patients received ceftriaxone 1 g daily for 5 days and 33 patients obtained phenoxymethylpenicillin, 1 million units 3 times daily, for 12 days. Follow-up was for a mean of 10 +/- 5 months. Eight oral penicillin recipients (24%) and six ceftriaxone recipients (15%)(More)
Between December 1978 and July 1985, we used various antibiotics for the treatment of 97 adult patients with early erythema migrans disease (EMD). Six patients with borrelial lymphocytoma (BL) and 20 with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans (ACA) were treated similarly. Follow-up was for a median of 20, 14, and 12 months, respectively. The erythema migrans(More)
In a study on 121 consecutive patients with erythema migrans, 65 patients obtained oral penicillin, 36 tetracyclines, and 20 amoxicillin-clavulanic-acid. Follow-up was carried out for a median of 29, 17, and 7 months, respectively. In another limited trial on 29 patients with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans (ACA), 14 patients received oral penicillin, 9(More)
Research in Medical Image Processing (MIP) is mainly driven by a technology-oriented point of view. However, as an application-oriented field, MIP research should always be able to give an answer to the question of what is the potential benefit of a solved MIP problem or a newly developed MIP-based system supporting a diagnostic or therapeutic process, in(More)
The use of multivariate nonlinear discriminant analysis raised the rate of correct classification for 585 pancreatic function tests from 84 percent by the doctor to 93 percent by computer analysis. In addition to the "normal" and "pancreatic" disease groups, a group of 388 patients was found in whom secretion levels were neither normal nor typical of(More)
In the fields of health care and medicine there is an immense demand for a systematic application of methods of information processing and for the use of computers. Obviously, to that end well-trained scientists and qualified personnel must be available. With the present recommendations on education and training in medical informatics the German Association(More)
