Data for three different gabbro intrusions within the suite are identical within analytical error and are consistent with(More)
The effect on the detection and characteristics of melanoma, resulting from the Cancer Research Campaign's health education programme to promote the early detection of melanoma in the general population, was studied from 1987 to 1989. The seven study areas in England and Scotland yield a target population of 3.6 million. Data were collected from local(More)

Calibration constants were obtained for those patients with prothrombin ratios within the therapeutic range, and for those well outside the therapeutic(More)
