      BACKGROUND: Up to 60% of patients with Crohn's disease need intestinal resection within the first 10 years of diagnosis, and postoperative recurrence is common. We investigated whether mercaptopurine can prevent or delay postoperative clinical recurrence of Crohn's disease.

      METHODS: We did a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial at 29 UK secondary and tertiary hospitals of patients (aged >16 years in Scotland or >18 years in England and Wales) who had a confirmed diagnosis ...

      BACKGROUND: Medication errors are common in primary care and are associated with considerable risk of patient harm. We tested whether a pharmacist-led, information technology-based intervention was more effective than simple feedback in reducing the number of patients at risk of measures related to hazardous prescribing and inadequate blood-test monitoring of medicines 6 months after the intervention.

      METHODS: In this pragmatic, cluster randomised trial general practices in the UK were ...

      OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the implementation and adoption of the NHS detailed care records service in "early adopter" hospitals in England.

      DESIGN: Theoretically informed, longitudinal qualitative evaluation based on case studies.

      SETTING: 12 "early adopter" NHS acute hospitals and specialist care settings studied over two and a half years.

      DATA SOURCES: Data were collected through in depth interviews, observations, and relevant documents relating directly to case study sites and to wider ...

      AIMS: Mortality in patients with heart failure remains high and is difficult to predict. QT interval parameters on a 12-lead ECG have been shown to predict arrhythmic events in patients with a variety of myocardial diseases. There is some, but not consistent, evidence that QT interval parameters may act as predictors of mortality, in particular sudden death, in patients with heart failure. In an adequately powered prospective study we have studied QT interval parameters in patients with ...

      PURPOSE: Patients with early breast cancer who receive anthracycline-containing chemotherapy experience improved relapse-free (RFS) and overall survival (OS) compared with those who receive non-anthracycline-containing chemotherapy. Such benefit, however, may be restricted to women whose tumors have specific molecular characteristics. We tested the hypothesis that HER2, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFr)/HER1, HER3, Ki67, and topoisomerase IIalpha expression are predictive of ...

      BACKGROUND: Medication errors are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in primary care. The aims of this study are to determine the effectiveness, cost effectiveness and acceptability of a pharmacist-led information-technology-based complex intervention compared with simple feedback in reducing proportions of patients at risk from potentially hazardous prescribing and medicines management in general (family) practice.

      METHODS: RESEARCH SUBJECT GROUP: "At-risk" patients ...

      OBJECTIVES: To assess whether omission of postoperative radiotherapy in women with 'low-risk' axillary node negative breast cancer (T0-2) treated by breast-conserving surgery and endocrine therapy improves quality of life and is more cost-effective.

      DESIGN: A randomised controlled clinical trial, using a method of minimisation balanced by centre, grade of cancer, age, lymphatic/vascular invasion and preoperative endocrine therapy, was performed. A non-randomised cohort was also ...

      BACKGROUND: Current guidelines for the surgical management of melanoma aim to bring a combined consensus approach to the surgery of melanoma. Whether different outcomes for melanoma are related to the specialist who treats the patient is unknown.

      OBJECTIVES: To examine the clinicopathological features and surgical management of patients with primary cutaneous malignant melanoma treated by dermatologists, general surgeons, plastic surgeons and general practitioners (GPs). We also examined ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine whether aspirin and antioxidant therapy, combined or alone, are more effective than placebo in reducing the development of cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes mellitus and asymptomatic peripheral arterial disease.

      DESIGN: Multicentre, randomised, double blind, 2x2 factorial, placebo controlled trial.

      SETTING: 16 hospital centres in Scotland, supported by 188 primary care groups.

      PARTICIPANTS: 1276 adults aged 40 or more with type 1 or type 2 diabetes ...

      BACKGROUND: In the treatment of operable breast cancer by breast conservation, the extent of axillary dissection, the need for radiotherapy to the axilla and the morbidity associated with these procedures have not been assessed adequately.

      METHODS: Patients with operable breast cancer were randomized to have level III axillary node clearance (232 patients) or axillary node sample (234 patients). Radiotherapy to the axilla was given selectively. Radiotherapy was not given to those who had ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine the uptake and acceptability of different methods of a universal offer of voluntary HIV testing to pregnant women.

      DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial involving four combinations of written and verbal communication, followed by the direct offer of a test. The control group received no information and no direct offer of a test, although testing was available on request.

      SETTING: Hospital antenatal clinic covering most of the population of the city of ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine the optimum duration of oral anticoagulant therapy after an episode of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, or both.

      DESIGN: Multicentre, prospective, randomised study with follow-up for one year.

      SETTING: 46 hospitals in United Kingdom.

      PARTICIPANTS: Patients aged > or =18 with deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, or both.

      INTERVENTIONS: Three (n=369) or six months (n=380) of anticoagulation with heparin for five days accompanied and followed by ...

      OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore the value of noninvasive predictors of death/mode of death in ambulant outpatients with chronic heart failure (HF).

      BACKGROUND: Mortality in chronic HF remains high, with a significant number of patients dying of progressive disease. Identification of these patients is important.

      METHODS: We recruited 553 ambulant outpatients age 63 +/- 10 years with symptoms of chronic HF (New York Heart Association functional class, 2.3 +/- 0.5) and ...

      OBJECTIVES: To describe and evaluate the implementation and adoption of detailed electronic health records in secondary care in England and thereby provide early feedback for the ongoing local and national rollout of the NHS Care Records Service.

      DESIGN: A mixed methods, longitudinal, multisite, socio-technical case study.

      SETTING: Five NHS acute hospital and mental health trusts that have been the focus of early implementation efforts and at which interim data collection and analysis ...

      BACKGROUND: Glucocorticoids are associated with a reduction in bone density and an increased risk of fracture. Concurrent treatment with bisphosphonates reduces bone loss and may prevent fractures. A randomised study was performed to determine whether treatment with cyclical etidronate and/or calcium for 5 years prevents fractures or reverses/reduces bone loss in patients receiving glucocorticoid treatment for asthma.

      METHODS: A multicentre, randomised, parallel group comparison of ...
