Proton relative biological effectiveness (RBE) for survival in mice after thoracic irradiation with fractionated doses
Purpose: This study aims at providing relative biological effectiveness (RBE) data under reference conditions accounting for the determination of the 'clinical RBE' of protons.Methods and Materials: RBE (ref. 60Co γ-rays) ...
Can uroflowmetry patterns in women be reliably interpreted?
Our aim was to investigate the proposition that uroflowmetry patterns can be reliably interpreted and correspond with specific urodynamic diagnoses. Uroflowmetry traces from 129 women with diagnoses of either genuine stress ...
Physiological induction of the acrosome reaction in human sperm: Validation of a microassay using minimal volumes of solubilized, homologous zona pellucida
Purpose: To develop a method that could accommodate microvolumes of solubilized human zona pellucida (ZP) and sperm for assessing the induction of the acrosome reaction. Methods: A microassay using 1 μl of 2.5, 1.25, 0.6, ...

Risk factors for and perinatal mortality of abruptio placentae in patients hospitalised for early onset severe pre-eclampsia - A case controlled study
We set out to determine which patients admitted for expectant management of early onset severe pre-eclampsia develop abruptio placentae and to compare the perinatal mortality rate of patients who developed abruptio placentae ...
Twice weekly vs. daily chemotherapy for childhood tuberculosis
Background. Treating childhood tuberculosis places a large burden on health services, and ways of lessening this were sought. Methods. A randomized controlled trial was conducted to determine the effectiveness of fully ...
Detection of and discrimination between gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria in intraocular samples by using nested PCR
A nested PCR protocol has been developed for the detection of and discrimination between 14 species of gram-positive and -negative bacteria in samples of ocular fluids. First-round PCR with pan-bacterial oligonucleotide ...
Self-diffusion of water and fluorine ions in anion-exchange polymeric materials (membranes and resin) as determined by pulsed-field gradient nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
The self-diffusion of water, ethanol and fluorine ions was studied by means of pulsed-field gradient nuclear magnetic resonance (PFG-NMR) spectroscopy in anion-exchange materials such as membranes and a resin containing ...
The efficacy of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors for social anxiety disorder (social phobia): A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
This article reviews all available studies on the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) for the pharmacotherapy of social anxiety disorder. Using the search methods laid out by the Cochrane Collaboration, ...
Pharmacotherapy of obsessive-compulsive disorder: Experience with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors
Since the introduction of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) a decade ago, they have become first-line agents in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Numerous clinical trials have confirmed ...
