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)
Ergometrine (2.5-80 mg/kg IP) induced head twitches in mice. Pretreatment with cyproheptadine (1.5 and 3 mg/kg), methysergide (5 and 10 mg/kg) and (-)-propranolol (2.5 and 5 mg/kg) significantly decreased the number of head twitches induced by ergometrine. Pretreatment with p-chlorophenylalanine (100 mg/kg/day X 4 days) and clomipramine (5 and 10 mg/kg)(More)
Small doses of apomorphine (AP, 31.25-125 micrograms/ kg IP) induced dose-dependent catalepsy in rats. However, unlike the stereotyped behavior induced by high doses of AP which has a rapid onset and is short-lasting, the cataleptic effect induced by small doses of AP was evident 30 min after AP injection and was unusually long-lasting. Further, AP(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)
