The purpose of this study was to assess the variability in the volume of the mesorectum in patients with rectal carcinoma. A retrospective review was made of pelvic MRI studies in 30 patients (mean age 64 years, range 34-88 years, 18M:12F) with histologically proven rectal carcinomas that were confined to the mesorectum. The outer low signal margin of the(More)
24 h pretreatment with molindone enhanced the behavioural effects of L-dopa and 5-HTP, precursors of biogenic amines (catecholamines and 5-HT respectively) preferentially deaminated by MAO-A, confirming that a metabolite of molindone inhibits MAO-A. 24 h pretreatment with molindone enhanced the behavioural effects of tryptamine and antagonized(More)
The Infants' Dermatitis Quality of Life Index (IDQoL) is a questionnaire completed by parents to assess the impact of atopic dermatitis on the quality of life of infants aged 0-3 years. The aim was to review all clinical and psychometric data on the use of the IDQoL from its inception in 2001 until November 2012, to serve as a single reference source. A(More)
Information quality assessment is the process of inspecting business information to ensure that it meets the needs of the knowledge workers who depend on it. We suggest in this paper that, prior to implementing a system to assess quality, those responsible for information quality can use a subset of clean data to create a statistical model of a decision(More)
Bromocriptine (5-30 mg/kg, ip), 2 hr after administration, induced cage climbing behaviour in mice. Pretreatment with haloperidol, an antagonist of both D-1 and D-2 dopamine receptors, metoclopramide and molindone, the selective D-2 dopamine receptor antagonists, effectively antagonised bromocriptine-induced climbing behaviour. The results indicate that(More)
Pretreatment with the DAi receptor antagonist ergometrine (10, 20 mg kg-1 i.p.) significantly potentiated methamphetamine stereotypy and facilitated the induction of biting, gnawing or licking behaviour by amantadine. However, ergometrine (5-20 mg kg-1) did not significantly influence the stereotyped behaviour induced by the DAe receptor agonist(More)
Pretreatment with fenfluramine (5 and 10 mg/kg, ip) in doses which induced head twitches was found to antagonize apomorphine-induced cage climbing behaviour and methamphetamine stereotypy in mice. Since fenfluramine (5 and 10 mg/kg) did not induce catalepsy it indicates that fenfluramine lacks postsynaptic striatal and mesolimbic dopamine receptor blocking(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the radiation dose received by the radiologist when performing wire localisation for axillary radio-isotope sentinel node imaging-guided biopsy in patients with impalpable breast cancers treated with breast-preserving excision. When wire placement follows radio-isotope sentinel node imaging (RSNI) the radiologist is exposed to a(More)
