The IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RN) is a protein that binds to IL-1 receptors and inhibits the binding of IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta. As a consequence, the biological activity of these two cytokines is neutralized in physiological and pathophysiological immune and inflammatory responses. In this study, using a panel of somatic rodent-human cell hybrids, we(More)
AIMS To compare the use of health care resources and associated costs between infants with chronic lung disease (CLD) who had or had not an admission with a proven respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. METHODS Review of community care, outpatient attendances, and readmissions in the first two years after birth. PATIENTS 235 infants (median(More)
RATIONALE To determine the dosage requirements and pharmacokinetics of atevirdine, a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor and its N-dealkylated metabolite (N-ATV) during phase I studies in patients receiving atevirdine alone or in combination with zidovudine. DESIGN Two open label, phase I studies conducted by the adult AIDS Clinical Trials(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this randomized controlled study was to determine the effects of biofeedback and relaxation on blood glucose and HbA1c (A1C) in patients with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Patients with type 2 diabetes were randomized to either 10 sessions of biofeedback (electromyograph and thermal) and relaxation or 3 sessions(More)
Previous studies have shown that the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase mutation Y181C, which confers high-level resistance to nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), develops rarely during therapy with NNRTIs plus zidovudine. To determine whether didanosine (ddI) is also effective in preventing the emergence(More)
This paper describes the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH) consortium linkage map of chromosome 2. The map contains 36 loci defined by genotyping generated from the CEPH family DNAs. A total of 73 different markers were typed by 14 contributing laboratories; of these, 36 loci are ordered on the map with likelihood support of at least 1000:1.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the rehospitalisation and primary care requirements of infants with chronic lung disease (CLD) during the first two years after birth were influenced by a requirement for supplementary oxygen after discharge from the neonatal intensive care unit. METHODS Review of records from both the hospital and general practitioner. (More)
We have assembled a panel of monochromosomal somatic cell hybrids for use in gene mapping. DNA from each individual hybrid was used as a probe on normal human metaphases to identify the human chromosome and any fragments by reverse painting. To test the efficiency of the panel PCR amplification of DNA from the monochromosomal somatic cell hybrid panel was(More)
