OBJECTIVE Pimecrolimus cream (SDZ ASM 981), a nonsteroid inhibitor of inflammatory cytokines, is effective in atopic dermatitis (AD). We assessed whether early treatment of AD signs/symptoms with pimecrolimus could influence long-term outcome by preventing disease flares. METHODS Early intervention with pimecrolimus was compared with a conventional AD(More)
BACKGROUND Pimecrolimus cream 1% (Elidel, SDZ ASM 981), a nonsteroid selective inhibitor of inflammatory cytokines, is effective in the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD). In this study we compared early intervention with pimecrolimus cream with treatment with a vehicle control. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this investigation was to assess whether early(More)
A large number of resuscitation training courses (structured resuscitation training programmes (SRT)) take place in many countries in the world on a regular basis. This review aimed to determine whether after attending SRT programmes, the participants have a sustained retention of resuscitation knowledge and skills after their initial acquisition and(More)
BACKGROUND This report investigates the effect of pimecrolimus cream 1% (Elidel, Novartis pharma AG, Basel, Switzerland), a nonsteroid, cell-selective, cytokine inhibitor on the course of atopic dermatitis (AD), as assessed by changes in body surface involvement and pattern of drug use over time. METHODS Data from 961 patients in two 1-year double-blind,(More)
The goals of ATF2 are to test a novel compact final focus optics design with local chromaticity correction intended for use in future linear colliders. The newly designed extraction line and final focus system will be used to produce a 37nm vertical waist from an extracted beam from the ATF ring of ~30nm vertical normalised emittance, and to stabilise it at(More)
Experiments at the FLASH linac at DESY have demonstrated that the higher order modes (HOMs) induced in superconducting cavities can be used to provide a variety of beam and cavity diagnostics. The centres of the cavities can be determined from the beam orbit which produces minimum power in the dipole HOM modes. The phase and amplitude of the dipole modes(More)
The signals from the Higher Order Mode (HOM) ports on superconducting cavities can be used as beam position monitors and to do survey structure alignment. A HOM-based diagnostic system has been installed to instrument both couplers on each of the 40 cryogenic accelerating structures in the DESY TTF2 Linac. The electronics uses a single stage down conversion(More)
Vitamin D analogues, such as calcipotriol, are successfully used for the treatment of several hyperproliferative skin diseases, including psoriasis [1]. In a similar manner to 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 (calcitriol), the hormonally active form of vitamin D3, calcipotriol, binds to the nuclear vitamin D receptor and acts as a transcription factor. The result(More)
