To explore brain involvement in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), the statistical parametric mapping of brain MR images has been extended to voxel-based regressions against clinical scores. Using SPM5 we performed voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and analysed T(1) - and T(2) -weighted spin-echo MR signal levels in 25 CFS subjects and 25 normal controls (NC).(More)
BACKGROUND AND HYPOTHESIS Thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator is proven to reduce disability when given within 4·5 h of ischemic stroke onset. However, tissue plasminogen activator only succeeds in recanalizing large vessel arterial occlusion in a minority of patients. We hypothesized that anterior circulation ischemic stroke patients, selected(More)
Radiographic contrast agents using gadolinium have a better safety profile and photoelectric effect than iodinated contrast, allowing use where iodinated contrast is contraindicated. A case of gadolinium-enhanced computed tomographic aortography (CTA) for suspected thoracic dissection is reported. Aortic enhancement was sufficient for confident exclusion of(More)
Identification of dendritic cells (DC) in human tissues has been technically problematic due to the lack of truly specific immunohistochemical markers for DC's. Human dendritic cells express CD1a glycoprotein at certain points in their life cycle. CD1a positive cells are present in many human tumours and have been associated with improved survival. However,(More)
Nutlin-3a is a small-molecule antagonist of p53/MDM2 that is being explored as a treatment for sarcoma. In this study, we examined the molecular mechanisms underlying the sensitivity of sarcomas to Nutlin-3a. In an ex vivo tissue explant system, we found that TP53 pathway alterations (TP53 status, MDM2/MDM4 genomic amplification/mRNA overexpression, MDM2(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of CT of the brain in patients presenting with a psychiatric condition without focal neurological signs. The reports of 397 consecutive CT brain scans of patients presenting to two acute tertiary hospital psychiatric services over a 2-year period were assessed retrospectively. Of the 397 patients, 241 had(More)
We report a case of combined intravenous and intra-arterial thrombolysis in a patient presenting with acute ischaemic stroke. Progression to intra-arterial thrombolysis in patients who fail to show clinical improvement within 6 h of symptom onset might be a safe treatment option at centres with access to stroke specialist and endovascular services. The(More)
INTRODUCTION The role and timing of postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) in the management of retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS) remains controversial. METHOD This is a retrospective cohort review of patients undergoing curative resection for RPS at a single institution between January 2011 and July 2016. Patient selection was through the South Australian Soft(More)
BACKGROUND Haematuria and pelvic pain are recognized and documented adverse reactions related to Cabazitaxel use. To date there has not been any documentation of imaging findings in patients with this presentation. CASES We report a case series of five patients who experienced these symptoms while on Cabazitaxel and were all found to have very similar(More)
