Clinically it is manifested by four groups of symptoms which include muscular hypertonicity, autonomic instability, altered consciousness, and hyperthermia. Laboratory findings such as(More)
Despite the substantial experimental literature that has accrued on factors associated with a reduction in neglect, few empirical studies have attempted to extrapolate these findings to clinical assessment and evaluate the efficacy of neglect-reducing strategies on patient performance. The current study developed a modified version of the Raven's Coloured(More)
BACKGROUND Randomised controlled trials demonstrate that methotrexate is effective in inducing remission and preventing relapse of Crohn's disease (CD) as a first-line immunosuppressant, but efficacy data after failure with, or intolerance to, thiopurines are limited. AIMS To report efficacy of methotrexate in a cohort of refractory CD patients, most of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Randomised controlled trials demonstrate that the anti-tumour necrosis factor-α (anti-TNFα) therapies infliximab and adalimumab are effective in inducing remission and preventing relapse of Crohn's disease (CD). As few studies have compared costs and efficacy of these two drugs directly, we examined this issue. METHODS Data were(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS There are conflicting data for the role of obesity in Crohn's disease (CD) and the effect on long-term clinical outcomes is poorly studied. Some evidence suggests obesity is associated with diminished responsiveness to biological agents, especially anti-tumour necrosis factor antibodies. METHODS We aimed to examine the influence of body(More)
