Diabetes was induced in 20–30% of adult CD1 mice 15–20 days after infection by a tissue culture propagated strain of Coxsackie B4 virus. Serum insulin and insulin release from isolated islets indicated a relative insulin deficiency in diabetic animals. In some animals diabetes appeared to be permanent whilst in many it was of a temporary nature. Histology(More)
Strenuous physical activity has been linked to pelvic floor disorders in women. Using a novel wireless intra-vaginal pressure transducer, intra-abdominal pressure was measured during diverse activities in a laboratory. Fifty-seven women performed a prescribed protocol using the intra-vaginal pressure transducer. We calculated maximal, area under the curve(More)
The techniques of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and immunoblotting were used to examine a total of 1667 sera, from apparently healthy members of rural communities in England, for antibodies to the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Escherichia coli O157 and Verocytotoxins (VT). Twenty-nine sera from 22 individuals were shown to have antibodies specific(More)
The performance of four acellular pertussis vaccines containing between two and five pertussis antigens combined with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids was compared with that of British whole-cell diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis (DTP) vaccine both in laboratory assays for potency, toxicity and immunogenicity, and for reactogenicity and immunogenicity in infants.(More)
To describe the development, feasibility and validity of a wireless intra-vaginal pressure transducer (IVT) which can be used to measure intra-abdominal pressure in real-world settings. A feasibility study was conducted in sixteen physically active women to determine retention and comfort of various IVT prototype designs during activity. A criterion(More)
The intraperitoneal inoculation of CD(1) mice with Coxsackie virus B(4) resulted in the raising of blood sugar levels to diabetic values 12 days after the administration of the virus. Serum insulin remained inappropriately low. Light microscopy changes in the islets of Langerhans showed mononuclear cell infiltration of the islets and marked degranulation of(More)
A study was performed to compare adverse events and antibody response in term and preterm children vaccinated with diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis vaccine at 2, 3, and 4 months of age. A total of 124 children were recruited and grouped according to gestational age: 37 weeks or more (n = 52), 34 to 36 weeks (n = 40), and less than 34 weeks (n = 32). Study(More)
