This paper analyses two sets of data that consist of repeated measurements with missing data. The missing observations always occur at the end of the series of repeated measurements. The score test for multivariate normal data is used to compare treatment groups; if the original data are not multivariate normal they are replaced by expected normal scores.
Late infantile GM1 gangliosidosis is an extremely rare metabolic disorder with clinical features of seizure and progressive motor and mental retardation without facial dysmorphism or visceral organomegaly. We report the CT and MR imaging findings in one infant, which included abnormalities of the cerebral cortex, white matter, and deep nuclei.
The effects of intracoronary injection of two nonionic contrast media (iohexol and metrizamide) on myocardial contraction and chemical composition of coronary sinus (CS) blood were compared with those caused by the standard ionic contrast material for coronary angiography, sodium meglumine diatrizoate (R76), in 14 anesthetized dogs. The effects of each(More)
This study was conducted to investigate whether a single dose of nebulized budesonide effectively decreased airway inflammation as demonstrated by exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) levels. A single dose of nebulized budesonide, but not nebulized terbutaline, rapidly decreased eNO levels in 6 hours. The decrease in eNO levels induced by nebulized budesonide was(More)
Xanthoma invasion of the bone is a very rare disease especially in normolipidemic children. Bone erosion can be found in patients with this disease. However, due to the similarity of the symptoms of xanthoma with many other diseases including malignancy, the other diseases may initially be to be suggested and xanthoma may not even be considered. In this(More)
A study has been conducted at selected locations along the Straits of Malacca on twelve aquaculture fish samples to determine the level of hydrocarbon pollution in the fishes. The homogenized fish tissues were extracted using soxhlet, fractionated and analyzed by using GCMS. Hopanes and PAHs were detected and were found in the range of 57.59 to 9610.31 ng/g(More)
The Lowe syndrome, or oculocerebrorenal syndrome, is a rare X-linked recessive hereditary disease which typically involves three major systems including ocular defects (congenital cataracts, glaucoma, searching nystagmus), central nervous system defects (generalized hypotonia with decreased or absent deep tendon reflex and severe mental retardation), and(More)
With limited near-field resolution and accessible acoustic windows, sonography has not been advocated for assessing central nervous system injuries in the shaken-baby syndrome. Our purpose was to correlate high-resolution ultrasonographic characteristics of central nervous system injuries in whiplash injuries and the shaken-baby-syndrome with MRI and CT.(More)
Subglottic hemangioma (SGH) is a benign neoplasm that may cause severe and life-threatening respiratory obstruction in infants. However, patients usually present with inspiratory stridor in the first few months of life and may be mistakenly diagnosed as recurrent or persistent croup. Definitive diagnosis is made by image studies, endoscopic examination and(More)
Myocarditis complicated with complete heart block is rare in childhood. We report a case of 4-year-old child presented with complete heart block which may have been caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Under emergent temporal pacing, patient experienced cardiogenic shock with pulmonary edema eventually. The cardiopulmonary function was improved with atrial(More)
