BACKGROUND Iron deficiency is a common and undertreated problem in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). AIM To develop an online tool to support treatment choice at the patient-specific level. METHODS Using the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method (RUAM), a European expert panel assessed the appropriateness of treatment regimens for a variety of clinical(More)
Effects of nicotine, administered by continuous infusion via osmotic minipumps, were studied on the operant self-administration of alcohol by rats, using a variable interval (15 s) schedule, and measuring the acquisition, maintenance, extinction and reinstatement of responding for alcohol. Doses of nicotine of 0.25, 1.25 and 7.5 mg/kg/24 h had no(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously demonstrated that patients with Crohn's disease (CD) of long duration have signs of autonomic neuropathy. The aim of this study was to examine whether autonomic neuropathy is an early manifestation of CD, or a sign appearing late in the course. METHODS Twenty patients, median age 40 years, with a short duration of CD were(More)
The introduction of hybrid systems, including broadcast as well as mobile telecom, for 4G is motivated. A current EU project, MCP, developing and specifying network and receiver architectures for hybrid networks is described. Reasons to use DVB-T for unicast services are explained. A way to increase spectrum efficiency by using broadcast functionality in(More)
In a double-blind multicentre study of parallel group design the efficacy and safety of remoxipride and haloperidol were compared in a total of 96 patients with acute episodes of schizophrenic or schizophreniform disorder according to DSM-III. There were 48 patients in each treatment group; 27 men and 21 women in the remoxipride group, 33 men and 15 women(More)
OBJECTIVE Iron isomaltoside (Monofer(®)) is a high-dose intravenous iron preparation with good tolerability and efficacy in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients with iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). This trial evaluates the safety and efficacy, including effect on intact fibroblast growth factor 23 (iFGF23) of a high single dose and cumulative doses of(More)
BACKGROUND Diet may have a role in the etiology of inflammatory bowel disease. In previous studies, the associations between increased intakes of carbohydrates, sugar, starch, and inflammatory bowel disease are inconsistent. However, few prospective studies have investigated the associations between these macronutrients and incident Crohn's disease (CD) or(More)
BACKGROUND There are plausible mechanisms for how dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, could prevent Crohn's disease (CD). AIM To conduct a prospective study to investigate the association between increased intake of DHA and risk of CD. METHODS Overall, 229 702 participants were recruited from nine European centres(More)
Basilar artery occlusions are rare but have a very poor prognosis. Intra-arterial thrombolysis may produce recanalization and better clinical outcome. A short delay between the onset of symptoms and thrombolysis is considered essential for successful recanalization and for the smallest possible risk of haemorrhagic complications. We present a case of(More)
