BACKGROUND Systematic reviews of antibiotic treatment of common acute respiratory tract infections (RTIs) suggest modest symptomatic benefit, but provide limited evidence that prescribing prevents complications. AIM To assess the relationship between penicillin prescribing (the most commonly used group of antibiotics for RTIs) and hospital admission with… (More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is a common and treatable cause of stroke that often remains unrecognised. Screening has been suggested but there is very little evidence concerning the uptake of screening in the elderly population at risk, nor of the optimal method of screening in a general practice setting AIM To compare the uptake and effectiveness of… (More)
Probe 218 EP6 is known to recognise two restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) after digestion of genomic DNA withPvuII. We report a rare allele that segregates in Mendelian fashion, in a family where adult polycystic kidney disease was being tracked using linked polymorphisms.

Anderson-Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder due to α-galctosidase A deficiency. In affected males there is a high mortality in early adult life due to renal failure and cardiovascular complications. We describe our preliminary results from genetic linkage studies in five families using two polymorphic DNA probes, DXS17 and DXYS1,… (More)
A previously unreported RFLP for probe 26-6, at 1.2-kb, has been recorded in two families after Southern blotting, where it has been useful in establishing phase. This allele is not detected in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for 26-6 where individuals are typed only as E2.
