Penile Cancer in Jamaicans Managed at the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
525–30
Synopsis: 
This study represents an analysis and comparison of the clinico-pathological features and outcomes of two sets of patients with penile cancer, managed at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Kingston, Jamaica, between the periods 1952–1958 and 1998–2008.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence and clinicopathological correlates of penile cancer as well as the clinical outcomes in a sample of Jamaicans managed at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).

Diagnostic Accuracy of Spot and Timed Measurements of Urinary Albumin Concentration to Determine Microalbuminuria in Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.323
Synopsis: 
We report that in sickle cell disease, both spot and two-hour timed urine collections for measurements of albumin concentration or albumin:creatinine ratios are good proxy measures of total 24-hour albumin excretion. These much simpler, and likely more cost-effective, methods can be applied in clinical practice with confidence.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Whereas measurement of albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) in spot urine samples is indicated for determining microalbuminuria, its performance or that of urinary albumin excretion rate (UAER) in predicting microalbuminuria in sickle cell disease (SCD) is unclear. We therefore tested the diagnostic performance of these measures in spot and timed urine samples in predicting a UAER in 24-hour samples.
