2.  Simplifying infusion chemotherapy: preliminary communication. 
A low-intervention policy for Hickman catheter maintenance has been evaluated and found to be safe and cost effective. A simple, lightweight, disposable device has been used for 24-hour ambulatory home infusion. Implementation of this policy as part of a prospective randomized trial of single-agent chemotherapy in advanced breast cancer has demonstrated that slow intravenous infusion reduces the acute toxicity of epirubicin when compared with bolus injection.

4.  Extraurinary manifestations of chronic pyonephrosis. 
Twenty-five patients who underwent nephrectomy for chronic pyonephrosis were studied retrospectively. Such patients may present with a wide range of symptoms. Marked haematological and biochemical abnormalities are found, the most striking being a gross elevation of plasma viscosity (or ESR) and a raised alkaline phosphatase. The resulting picture often suggests extrarenal disease, and diagnostic confusion occurred in a number of patients.
