(6) Of the HIV+ patients, four different response patterns were observed: (a) patients who responded to all four stimuli (16%); (b) patients who were selectively unresponsive to FLU and TET, but responded to ALLO and PHA (54%); (c) patients who were unresponsive to FLU, TET, or ALLO, but responsive to PHA (16%); and (d) patients who failed to respond to any of these stimuli (14%).
(7) That’s in the normal range, but should it go to 37.5 you may be whisked off to a holding centre as a suspect Ebola case, where – even if your fever is flu or more likely here, malaria – you will be detained with people who really do have this dangerously contagious virus.
(8) Flu cases rose steeply last week, up 44.9%, according to doctors reporting a surge of visits to their practices.
(9) The flu-like symptoms could be prevented by concomitant administration of paracetamol (500 mg. 3 times a day).
(10) Officials are investigating how the virus reached East Yorkshire, whether it could have be the result of commercial transport of birds, or carried by wild birds which are also affected by bird flu.
(11) With panic-inducing stories of deaths, rising infection rates and government failure to advertise the annual vaccination campaign, flu has once again reared its ugly head in our newspapers and across TV screens.
(12) The effects of Flu, ONO-3805, CMA and TZP-4238 on the accessory sex organs were investigated in castrated rats receiving DHEA-S and A.
(13) When compared to previously reported neuronal cell culture studies utilizing 3H-FLU specific binding, Ro5-4864-displaceable 3H-FLU binding, and protein determinations, glial cells appear to be significantly more resistant to chelated iron exposure.
(14) Normal mouse bone marrow cells were exposed to encephalomyocarditis virus (EMC), reovirus type 3 (REO3), influenza virus (FLU), and Newcastle disease virus (NDV) then assayed for granulocyte-macrophage precursor cells by the technique of colony formation in agar.
(15) In this study, prolactin (PRL) secretion was chosen as a parameter for functional exploration of central dopaminergic systems in normal and migraineous women before and after FLU treatment.
(16) In a statement, the chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said: "Severe winter flu and its complications can make people really ill and can kill, particularly those who are weak and frail which is why we already offer vaccinations to the most at risk groups.
(17) The primary dose-limiting toxicity in all these trials has been flu-like symptoms, particularly fever and fatigue.
(18) Concentrations of ETO and its active metabolite, FLU, were determined by HPTLC.
(19) In addition to the morphology of capillary loops, we investigated the transcapillary passage and interstitial distribution of sodium fluorescein (Na-flu) in healthy persons (42) and in patients suffering from functional microangiopathies (17) or organic vascular disease (58).
(20) In patients suffering from functional microangiopathy, an increased pericapillary FLI as well as an enlarged juxtacapillary zone with elevated Na-flu concentrations could be established as objective criteria in addition to the already known alterations of the morphology of the capillary loops.
(n.) Inflammation of the membranes of the brain or spinal cord.
(1) A review of campylobacter meningitis by Lee et al in 1985 reported nine cases occurring in neonates, of which only one case was caused by C. fetus.
(2) Such complications as intracerebral haematoma or meningeal haemorrhage may occur during the usually benign course of the disease.
(3) Two patients presented in addition to intestinal manifestations massive extraintestinal symptoms, both with septicemia and meningitis.
(4) The diagnosis of meningeal cyst was confirmed in a non-invasive way by MRI showing a mass with the same signal intensities as CSF on both T1 and T2 weighted images.
(5) Cefuzoname seems to be among the middle ranks of beta-lactam agents as far as penetration rate is concerned; however, when its potent antibacterial activity and broad spectrum are taken into account, the concentrations in CSF in patients with meningitis seem worth examining.
(6) There were no signs of meningeal leukemia, no pathological changes were caused by the intrathecal MTX treatment.
(7) The results demonstrated tumor cells infiltrating the surface meninges and a severe astrocytic reaction associated with oedema in the periventricular and brain stem subpial white matter.
(8) Unexpectedly long retention times were noted for the chlorinated solvents, particularly for chloroforn, which showed a specific long-term retention in the cerebellum, meninges and spinal nerves, indicating interactions with specific nervous tissue receptors.
(9) 96 patients with meningitis due to Neisseria meningitidis and Diplococcus pneumoniae were treated with epicillin or ampicillin according to a predesigned randomization chart.
(10) The clinical characteristics and response to therapy of a patient with meningeal sarcoma, one of four patients over a twenty-five year period at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, are described.
(11) Oligoclonal IgG proteins were detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) during the 2nd week after onset of meningitis or later in 4 out of 10 patients, and could be detected as late as 11 and 12 months after meningitis in 2 patients.
(12) Although intensive care medicine and chemotherapy of bacterial infections have made great progress during the last 30 years, therapeutic efficacy in bacterial meningitis in adult patients could not be improved.
(13) The heads were examined for adult and larval meningeal worms (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis) by physical examination of the brain surfaces, and the Baermann technique, respectively, and for ear mites by examination of ear scrapings.
(14) Staphylococcus epidermidis is a recognized cause of nosocomial meningitis in low-birth-weight infants and frequently occurs without CSF abnormalities.
(15) Although intracranial tuberculoma is uncommon in children, it must be included in the differential diagnosis of all tuberculous meningitis.
(16) The concentrations that were obtained in the CSF were not high enough to justify the exclusive use of fosfomycin in the treatment of meningitis.
(17) Meningitis and meningoencephalitis are common manifestations of infection; solid granulomas occur but are unusual, and intraventricular granulomas are distinctly rare.
(18) Their cases were not compatible with missed meningitis.
(19) Its complications are exceptional (rhinorrhoea, meningitis, orbital trauma), but require a detailed preoperative examination in order to reveal variations in sinus anatomy.
(20) This review examines their use in respiratory tract infections, bacterial meningitis, skin-structure infections, and urinary tract infections in adult patients.
