Expression and localization of creatine kinase in the preimplantation embryo (2012)
Journal Article
Forsey, K. E., Ellis, P. J., Sargent, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., & Leese, H. J. (2013). Expression and localization of creatine kinase in the preimplantation embryo. Molecular Reproduction and Development, 80(3), 185-192. doi:10.1002/mrd.22146

Creatine Kinase (CK) catalyses the “creatine shuttle,” the reversible conversion of creatine phosphate to creatine with the liberation of ATP. This article examines the potential role of the creatine shuttle in the provision of ATP during... Read More

Medicine administration is a high risk activity that most nurses undertake frequently. In this paper, the views of registered mental health nurses and final year student nurses are evaluated about the usefulness of the Medicines with Respect Assessme... Read More

Minimally clinically important difference in chronic breathlessness: every little helps (2012)
Journal Article
Oxberry, S. G., Bland, J. M., Clark, A. L., Cleland, J. G., & Johnson, M. (2012). Minimally clinically important difference in chronic breathlessness: every little helps. American Heart Journal, 164(2), (229-235). doi:10.1016/j.ahj.2012.05.003. ISSN 0002-8703

ObjectivesThe aim of the study was to determine the minimally clinically important difference (MCID) for breathlessness due to chronic heart failure (CHF). BackgroundThe measurement of breathlessness is difficult because it is subjective and multifac... Read More

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is Associated with Circulating Antiepithelial Antibodies (2012)
Journal Article
Fahim, A., Chong, M. C., Crooks, M. G., & Hart, S. P. (2012). Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is Associated with Circulating Antiepithelial Antibodies. Lung, 190(4), 451-458. doi:10.1007/s00408-012-9390-z

PurposeIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a restrictive fibrotic lung disease of uncertain etiology. Alveolar epithelial injury may be one of the inciting triggers in the pathogenesis of this disorder. We hypothesized that circulating antibodies... Read More

Characterization of the effects of cross-linking of macrophage CD44 associated with increased phagocytosis of apoptotic PMN (2012)
Journal Article
Hart, S. P., Rossi, A. G., Haslett, C., & Dransfield, I. (2012). Characterization of the effects of cross-linking of macrophage CD44 associated with increased phagocytosis of apoptotic PMN. PloS one, 7(3), e33142. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0033142

Control of macrophage capacity for apoptotic cell clearance by soluble mediators such as cytokines, prostaglandins and lipoxins, serum proteins, and glucocorticoids may critically determine the rate at which inflammation resolves. Previous studies su... Read More

Journal Article
Kahal, H., Aye, M., Rigby, A. S., Sathyapalan, T., England, R. J. A., & Atkin, S. L. (2012). The effect of parathyroidectomy on neuropsychological symptoms and biochemical parameters in patients with asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism: pHPT neuropsychological symptoms. Clinical Endocrinology, 76(2), 196-200. doi:10.1111/j.1365-2265.2011.04197.x

Background With increased biochemical screening, primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) is often discovered incidentally whilst patients are asymptomatic. Objective To assess the impact of parathyroidectomy on neuropsychological symptoms and biochemical... Read More
