BACKGROUND Structural brain abnormalities have been described in autism but studies are often small and contradictory. We aimed to identify which brain regions can reliably be regarded as different in autism compared to healthy controls. METHOD A systematic search was conducted for magnetic resonance imaging studies of regional brain size in autism. Data(More)
BACKGROUND Lens degeneration in Fpr1(-/-) mice prompted us to search for functional FPR1 expression directly on lens epithelial cells. RESULTS FPR1 is functionally expressed on human lens epithelial cells but has atypical properties compared with hematopoietic cell FPR1. CONCLUSION Lens epithelial cell FPR1 may be involved in development and maintenance(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence to suggest that among young people with mild intellectual disability there are those whose cognitive difficulties may predict the subsequent manifestation of a schizophrenic phenotype. It is suggested that they may be detectable by simple means. AIMS To gain adequate cooperation from educational services, parents and students(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent pain is grossly undertreated in older adult sufferers, despite its high prevalence in this age group. Because of its multidimensional impacts, including depression, sleep disruption and physical disability, patients with persistent pain often benefit from interdisciplinary pain clinic treatment. This treatment is expensive, however,(More)
Hereditary renal cancers account for approximately 5%-8% of all renal tumors. Over the past 2 decades, a number of syndromes have been identified that predispose patients to early renal cancer development, representing all the major histologic types of tumor pathology. In this article, we describe the current knowledge concerning the cell type, known(More)
PURPOSE The PI-RADS™ (Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System), version 2 scoring system, introduced in 2015, is based on expert consensus. In the same time frame ISUP (International Society of Urological Pathology) introduced a new pathological scoring system for prostate cancer. Our goal was to prospectively evaluate the cancer detection rates for each(More)
Urines are normally supersaturated with respect to calcium oxalates and phosphates. The formation of these phases in simulated in vitro experiments may give an indication of the likelihood of stone formation in vivo. However, spontaneous precipitation and normal seeded growth experiments suffer from the disadvantage that only small extents of reaction can(More)
