To develop criteria for the classification of fibromyalgia, we studied 558 consecutive patients: 293 patients with fibromyalgia and 265 control patients. Interviews and examinations were performed by trained, blinded assessors. Control patients for the group with primary fibromyalgia were matched for age and sex, and limited to patients with disorders that(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer has a high case-fatality ratio, with most women not diagnosed until the disease is in its advanced stages. The United Kingdom Collaborative Trial of Ovarian Cancer Screening (UKCTOCS) is a randomised controlled trial designed to assess the effect of screening on mortality. This report summarises the outcome of the prevalence(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the obstetric outcome of in vitro fertilization pregnancies with normally conceived pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN The obstetric outcome of in vitro fertilization pregnancies achieved in 763 British residents at two in vitro fertilization clinics resulting in the births of 961 babies were compared by means of the relative risk statistic(More)
In order to achieve a clinical pregnancy rate higher than that achieved following initial adoption of in-vitro fertilization embryo transfers, more than one embryo is transferred. This has led to a substantial increase in unwanted multiple pregnancy rates with IVF as compared with natural conception. What is therefore required is a simple, clinically useful(More)
Women referred to a familial breast cancer clinic completed questionnaires before and after counselling and at annual follow-up to assess their risk estimate and psychological characteristics. The aims were to determine whether those who attended the clinic overestimated their risk or were highly anxious and whether counselling influenced risk estimates and(More)
The internal structural proteins of retroviruses are proteolytically processed from the Gag polyprotein, which alone is able to assemble into virus-like particles when expressed in cells. All Gag proteins contain domains corresponding to the three structural proteins MA, CA, and NC. We have expressed the CA and NC domains together as a unit in Escherichia(More)
IVF treatment, which involves ovarian stimulation, poses significant health problems such as ovarian hyperstimulation and is associated with a high incidence of multiple pregnancy and premature birth. In this paper, we demonstrate how natural cycle IVF is an effective and potentially cost-effective alternative treatment option for certain groups of(More)
A total of 96 women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment were studied on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) administration by transvaginal ultrasonography with color and pulsed Doppler ultrasound. We assessed endometrial thickness, endometrial morphology, presence or absence of subendometrial or intraendometrial color flow,(More)
OBJECTIVE To relate changes in serum and follicular fluid vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) concentrations to Doppler blood flow velocities within ovarian and uterine blood vessels during IVF cycles and to assess their relation to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) and polycystic ovaries (PCO)/polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
