Developing practical criteria for evaluating online patient simulations: a preliminary study.

To determine how the origin of acute pain influences its semiological characteristics, and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two Level 2 analgesic combinations in general practice. We reviewed 6,497 respiratory allergic patients who underwent skin prick tests (SPTs) during the last 10 years (1995-2005) and analyzed the sensitization rates of the 3 pollens. Fricke dosimeter gel measurements of the profiles of shielded fields. We describe a female infant with severe abnormal phenotype with a de novo partial duplication of the short arm of the X chromosome.
