30 patients with supraspinatus or bicipital tendonitis were randomly allocated to active infrared laser therapy at 904 nm three times weekly for 2 weeks, dummy laser or drug treatment for 2 weeks. Objectively maximum active extension, flexion and abduction of the shoulder, and subjectively pain stiffness movement and function were measured at 0 and 2 weeks.(More)
The most critical factor affecting survival in patients with breast carcinoma is axillary nodal involvement. Monoclonal antibodies raised against specific human mammary tumour associated antigens may increase detection of micrometastases. This preliminary report examines two of these antigens; CA15-3 antigen and mucin-like carcinoma associated antigen (MCA)(More)
AIM To evaluate the results of primary stent placement in focal atherosclerotic aortic stenoses using balloon expandable stents. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-six primary balloon expandable stent placements in the abdominal aorta were performed and reviewed. All the aortic stenoses were atherosclerotic. Patients were followed up by ankle/brachial pressure(More)
A 75-year-old gentleman presented to our department with dysphagia, nocturnal cough and dysphonia. Clinical examination revealed a large parapharyngeal mass extending from the left nasopharynx to the glottis. A magnetic resonance imaging scan confirmed the lipomatous nature of the lesion and elegantly demonstrated its anatomy. We discuss the aetiology and(More)
To investigate the genetic basis of drug resistance in human malaria parasites, we have sequenced the entire dihydrofolate reductase thymidylate synthetase DHFR-TS bifunctional gene from the highly pyrimethamine-resistant K1 isolate of Plasmodium falciparum. The protein is predicted to consist of 607 amino acids (aa), (71,685 Da), with an N-terminal(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM In patients suspected of having a subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), a normal CT should be followed by lumbar puncture (LP) to detect xanthochromia. We studied the practice of performing a LP following a normal CT in patients with a clinical suspicion of SAH in a District General Hospital. We aimed to assess whether patients were being fully(More)
CA15-3 antigen and mucin-like carcinoma associated antigen (MCA) show potential as clinically useful serum markers of breast carcinoma. Recently, immunohistochemical versions of these monoclonal antibodies have become available but few data are available as to their clinical usefulness. The aims of this study were (i) to assess CA15-3 and MCA expression by(More)
Chronic pain is one of the most prevalent health problems in the world today, yet neurological markers, critical to diagnosis of chronic pain, are still largely unknown. The ability to objectively identify individuals with chronic pain using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data is important for the advancement of diagnosis, treatment, and(More)
Compression of the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal is an uncommon phenomenon. Reports of ulnar nerve palsy secondary to ulnar artery pseudoaneurysm at this anatomical location are very rare and equivalent pathology just distal to this site is unheard of. Here we present such a case, which featured a delayed onset of symptoms. This followed penetrating trauma(More)
