We systematically reviewed the patterns of Continuous Performance Test (CPT) errors of omission and commission exhibited by normal children and children with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) under no drug, placebo and methylphenidate drug conditions. Findings from 26 studies were submitted to a meta-analytic procedure. In contrast to the(More)
We review the literature on response times to ipsilesional and contralesional targets following spatial precues in patients with damage involving the left- and right-parietal lobes with the aim of appraising the 'disengage deficit' reported initially by Posner and colleagues (Posner MI, Cohen A, Rafal RD. Neural systems control of spatial orienting.(More)
Two patients and 28 others in the literature were ascertained because of congenital vaginal agenesis associated with clinical and/or radiographic evidence of malformations derived from the cervicothoracic somites. In these patients, there was a high incidence of Müllerian duct aplasia/hypoplasia (96%), renal agenesis and/or ectopy (80%), and abnormalities(More)
In the malformation analysis of 445 patients ascertained only for a sacrococcygeal malformation, a new phenotype, the sacrococcygeal dysgenesis association (SDA), was delineated in 34%. In addition, sirenomelia patients were found in 12%, the VATER association in 27%, and 27% could not be classified. Heterogeneity in the patients with sacrococcygeal(More)
Based on the family presented and five others previously described, it can be concluded that the Grieg cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome is a fully penetrant autosomal dominant disease consisting of four variably expressed malformations: postaxial polydactyly (type B), preaxial polydactyly, syndactyly, and minor craniofacial abnormalities. This entity can be(More)
Deletion of 16q is characterized by mental retardation, microcephaly, a characteristic combination of minor facial anomalies, and broad halluces. Various break points have been described. This patient's phenotype is typical of this syndrome, but in addition, unusual radiographic findings were present. This chromosome abnormality is compatible with survival(More)
BACKGROUND Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are effective maintenance treatments for childhood asthma; however, many children remain uncontrolled. Vilanterol (VI) is an inhaled long-acting beta-2 agonist which, in combination with the ICS fluticasone furoate, is being explored as a once-daily treatment for asthma in children. We evaluated the dose-response,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the dose-response, efficacy, and safety of fluticasone furoate (FF; 25 µg, 50 µg, and 100 µg), administered once daily in the evening during a 12-week treatment period to children with inadequately controlled asthma. STUDY DESIGN This was a Phase IIb, multicenter, stratified, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group,(More)
