(19) In 1993, at the Branch Davidian religious compound outside Waco, Texas, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms didn’t wait for the sect leader, David Koresh, to leave before attempting to arrest him and got into a gun battle that claimed 10 victims and led to a disastrous 51-day siege culminating in dozens more deaths.
(20) We propose a model whereby a protein repressor, under the control of PKA, inhibits precocious induction of stalk cell differentiation by DIF and so regulates the choice between slug migration and culmination.

(1) Cerebral edema is a serious complication of the encephalopathy in fulminant hepatic failure.
(2) This paper details the first case report of a patient with fulminant, gangrenous, ischemic colitis caused by polyarteritis nodosa which was successfully treated surgically.

(5) This is the first case of a fulminant phase of mumps ventriculitis leading to aqueductal stenosis, which has been treated using a ventriculoscope for the first time.
(6) Hyperacute rejection is uncommon, although syndromes of fulminant graft failure due to immunological mechanisms have been described.
(7) Prolonged disturbance of consciousness associated with periodic EEG discharges developed in a 57-year-old male after fulminant hepatitis.
(8) A 23-year old female patient on a prolonged regimen of tuberculostatic chemotherapy finally developed fulminant hepatic failure shortly after addition of hormonal contraception.
(9) Such markers are prerequisites for therapeutic trials with potent drugs which are only justified for patients with fulminant hepatitis and patients with progression to chronicity.
(10) We conclude that liver transplantation can be applied successfully to the difficult clinical problem of fulminant and subacute hepatic failure.
(11) One case of fulminating disease showed a change to slow progression and survived a year longer than was otherwise expected.
(12) Splenectomy was performed on one twin at age seven years who survived a complicating pneumococcal septicaemia ten days after the procedure, but who succumbed to fulminating infection three years later.
