The gingival health of 19 patients with cardiovascular problems who were medicated with nifedipine was compared with a similar cohort treated with atenolol and a control group of healthy patients. In the nifedipine and atenolol groups, patients had been taking their respective medication for a minimum period of 6 months. Plaque scores were similar for all(More)
BACKGROUND Pediatric dental procedures are increasingly performed under general anesthesia because of the inability to cooperate, situational anxiety, or other behavioral problems. Volatile anesthetics have been associated with emergence delirium in children, whereas the use of propofol for anesthetic maintenance has been shown to reduce the incidence of(More)
Monoclonal antibodies of the CD9 cluster recognize a 24 kD protein (p24) found on platelets and endothelium, and expressed by lymphocytes at restricted stages of maturation and activation. In this study, we explore the possibility that p24 is involved in the response of lymphocytes to signals delivered by lymphokines. p24 is expressed only very weakly by(More)
A murine monoclonal antibody has been produced which identifies a novel surface membrane antigen present on virtually all normal human leucocytes and leukaemic cells. The antibody, designated WM-65, reacted with over 95% of peripheral blood, tonsil and thymic lymphocytes, and with a similar proportion of monocytes and granulocytes. A majority of nucleated(More)
Pre- and post-operative body image, self-confidence and individual and family adjustment were compared in 250 patients (aged 6 weeks to 39 years) with severe craniofacial deformities. Major congenital deformities of genetic or idiopathic etiology were present in 178 patients and 72 had tumours or other late-onset deformities. The patients and/or parents(More)
A patient developed bleeding due to an acute acquired specific prothrombin deficiency. Unlike previously described patients, this patient had no evidence of an associated lupus anticoagulant. Prothrombin activity and antigen were decreased concordantly and the patient's plasma did not neutralize the activity of added prothrombin or interfere with its(More)
