Measles incidence, vaccine efficacy, and mortality were examined prospectively in two districts in Bissau where vaccine coverage for children aged 12-23 months was 81% (Bandim 1) and 61% (Bandim 2). There was little difference in cumulative measles incidence before 9 months of age (6.1% and 7.6%, respectively). Between 9 months and 2 years of age, however,(More)
In a randomised study of 558 children in an urban African community, the protective effect of the Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ) measles vaccine given in a dose of 40,000 plaque forming units from the age of 4 months was compared with the effects of a standard dose (6000 tissue culture infectious units) of Schwarz measles vaccine given from the age of 9 months.(More)
In two trials of measles vaccination in Guinea-Bissau, children were randomized to receive either the Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ) virus at age 4-8 months or, as a control group, a standard dose (5000 p.f.u.) of the Schwarz (SW) virus at 9-12 months. In the first trial a medium dose of EZ virus (40,000 p.f.u.) was used and in the later trial a high dose (150,000(More)
This investigation includes 17,187 patients in 417 hospitals in 16 countries admitted within 24 hours of the commencement of symptoms of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The patients were allotted at random to the following treatments 1) intravenous infusion of 1.5 million International Units streptokinase (SK) during one hour, 2) 160 mg acetyl salicylic(More)
Eradication of Helicobacter pylori is associated with a reduced recurrence of duodenal ulcer (DU). The relationship between H. pylori and DU has been interpreted as causal, but the evidence has been criticized for methodologic reasons. To ascertain whether an antibiotic with no effect on epithelial-cell integrity prevents DU recurrence, we conducted a(More)
We present a case of a 28-year-old male, using sertraline, who experienced progressive oedema in both upper extremities after having lifted two IKEA bags weighing 20 kg each from his car up to the third floor. Blood creatine kinase (CK) level was measured 5,260 U/l, and the patient was admitted for oral rehydration with the diagnosis rhabdomyolysis. The MRI(More)
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that infection with Helicobacter pylori is essential for recurrence of duodenal ulcer. We performed a randomized controlled trial of the relapse rate of duodenal ulcer during 12 weeks treatment with penicillin V or placebo in 170 out-patients from five centres. The relapse rate was 9% during treatment with(More)
