  • association of campylobacter upsaliensis with persistent bloody diarrhea
    Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2012
    Co-Authors: Brianne A Couturier, Devon C Hale, Marc Roger Couturier

    Abstract:

    n 83-year-old male presented to the emergency department(ED) with an acute history of severe bloody diarrhea. Hissymptoms began with nausea, vomiting, and Abdominal Cramp-ing, which he mistook for constipation. The patient took a singledose of laxative and shortly thereafter experienced numerous ep-isodesofprofusebloodydiarrheathatcontinuedforseveralhours.He did not have fevers, chills, or sweats. The patient was found byhis wife at home, collapsed in a chair, and was brought to the EDfor evaluation. The patient’s past medical history was significantfor irritable bowel syndrome but no history of bloody diarrhea orrectal bleeding. His social history revealed contact with his sister-in-law and two canine pets, all with bloody diarrhea. On arrival inthe ED, the patient’s physical examination was unremarkable;however, out of concern for a lower gastrointestinal bleed, thepatient was admitted for observation and further testing. Stoolstudies were negative for all gastrointestinal pathogens, including

  • Therapeutic response to somatostatin analogue, BIM 23014, in metastatic prostatic cancer
    Clinical & Experimental Metastasis, 1992
    Co-Authors: H. Parmar, C. D. A. Charlton, R. H. Phillips, L. Edwards, J. L. Bejot, F. Thomas, S. L. Lightman

    Abstract:

    Metastatic prostate cancer is well known to respond to hormonal manipulations, but once progression occurs new treatment modalities are required. Specific and systemic antitumour therapy is preferable to local treatments such as radiotherapy in such patients. The finding that somatostain analogue, BIM 23014, inhibits prostatic tumour growth in animal models is of great interest. We treated 25 poor risk patients with progressive metastatic prostate cancer. Sixteen had also failed to respond to ‘total androgen blockade’. Two patients have achieved a partial remission, one of which is maintained at over 30 months, and three had stable disease for over 6 months. Side effects have consisted of mild diarrhoea and Abdominal Cramp in the first few days of treatment in a minority of the patients. These results are encouraging and further randomized studies are in progress.
