Hematology (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Pathophysiologic mechanisms of malignancy-associated hypercalcemia are varied. The association of neoplasia and primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) has been illustrated by clinical cases and by epidemiologic studies which have pointed to an increased risk of different malignancies during PHP. The authors report two cases of monoclonal gammapathy and ...
A 29-yr-old Japanese man presented with left lumbar pain. Laboratory tests were suggestive of an inflammatory disease but serological, bacteriological, and markers of auto immunity were all negative. Gastroduodenal endoscopy showed slight mucosal congestion of the gastric antrum but the duodenum showed normal villi. Colonoscopy showed no abnormalit...
Clinical and experimental immunology
Many T cells infiltrate into the liver of patients with chronic hepatitis C (CH-C). They are believed to play a crucial role in the immunopathogenesis of hepatic inflammation, but their clonality and specificity are unknown. The aim of this study was to clarify the characteristics of these T cells. We analysed the complementarity-determining region...
Effects of the insecticide fenobucarb on 2 mayfly species, Epeorus latifolium and Baetis thermicus, were examined in indoor model streams. Aqueous concentrations of fenobucarb residues in the model streams were 69–71% of its nominal level until 24 h, except at low concentrations (less than 2 μg l−1 in the water) in the water. Chronic effects of fen...
Douleur et Analgésie
Plusieurs centres de traitement de la douleur chronique adaptés spécifiquement à la population pédiatrique ont vu le jour au cours de ces dernières années. Une enquête conduite auprès de tels Centres au Canada a montré que l’approche pluridisciplinaire est répandue. Le Centre de Traitement de la Douleur de l’Hôpital de Montréal pour Enfants a une s...
We studied the frequency of various features of the appearances on high-field MRI in symptomatic patients with chronic subdural haematomas (CSDH). The ability to predict recurrence after treatment with one burr-hole procedure using MRI was evaluated. A total of 40 patients with symptomatic CSDH underwent MRI at 1.5 T. All haematomas were evacuated ...

The results are discussed in relation to mental illness, life events and the experience of chronic pain.

The population pharmacokinetics of methotrexate in adults with rheumatoid arthritis were well described by this investigation. Substantial interpatient variability was explained by incorporating patient specific data into regression equations predicting pharmacokinetic parameters.
Journal of Traumatic Stress
To develop new Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) scales for diagnosing acute and chronic posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 237 civilians with PTSD or panic disorder (controls) completed the MMPI-R. All 399 items were submitted to chi-square analysis to select those differentiating acute or chronic PTSD from controls. The analys...
