Quotes

"I truly believe that EGFR-inhibition works...but studies in broad populations like DAHANCA-19 are not the way to go anymore ― we need to go for selected populations" lead researcher Jesper
...The author of the commentary reiterated the conclusions of the Task Force on Neck Pain, of which he is a member, that "The validity of high-intensity signal MRI findings in the upper cervical spine ligaments as representing acute whiplash injury had not been demonstrated" . Another recent study demonstrated that alar and transverse ligament signal within one year of injury most likely reflected normal variation
"The court granted Mrs. Arroyo’s request for her family to sleep there. I am sure there will be a thanksgiving mass on Saturday" said Topacio
"Current treatments include elimination diets (22, 23), and elemental formulas (2, 24). Identifying true inciting food allergens can be difficult and elemental formulas are often unpalatable, thereby making dietary interventions complicated (1, 22). Systemic corticosteroids and swallowed topical steroids, such as fluticasone proprionate (Flovent.TM.) administered through metered-dose inhaler (MDI), have been shown to induce and maintain low esophageal eosinophil levels (25-30). In one method, for example, a fluticasone metered dose inhaler (MDI) is puffed into the oropharynx and swallowed (26). Improvised puff and swallow techniques may be difficult for patients, especially smaller children, and especially children with developmental delays, to perform efficiently. This may result in a less than effective dose of a topical steroid being delivered to the esophagus."
