Citation Whyte, Christine, et al. Added echoes. Short duration of tracks. Some slighly strange gaps in sound. B-side with long darker track with death industrial atmosphere to it.
More carefully adjusted structure. Some spoken pieces, looped noises and slightly BDN'ish tone to synths. Power of N. Material is already from Perhaps my view on N. Even if material itself could be good, aesthetics of old Slaughter Productions titles were so much better that many of cdr releases with quite poor presentation doesn't give the sound same atmosphere.
If one doesn't have much N. As if there was sever clipping in digital master, but nobody cared. Tape itself is not the reason. Song itself is decent, but ruined by wrong kind of clipping. Coma Detox offers grim and suffocating stuff.
Finland's Whiteswan is decent, but clearly notch below the international names on the tape. Edge Of Decay blasts some simple harsh works to complete tape. Not any to-be-classic compilation, but works fine for fans of the type of sound.
It translates as forestchurch, and lo-fi ritualistic sessions and manual sound crafting has very out-doors feel to it. Some instruments, narration, nature mysticism, spirituality Never loud or abrasive, but neither any kind of soft muzak. Creative and perhaps slightly outside specific genre lines. BLJ is very nice industrial-noise type of stuff.
RR is less exciting on this, but works. Often there is the crunchy element to this era. Not this time. Would be curious to check if Rotten Piece was as good as there is recollections of it. So much of stuff was CDR's, so most I have never heard. Anyway, their label Lazy Squid Rekkids put out also some nice noise tapes. This is good example how Ramirez can be from utmost crap to brilliant on same tape.
Best tracks of the tape match his finest album works, while there is plenty of filler among 8 songs. Many times I find myself thinking " someone should reissue this " Still, listening few hours of the mr. Ramirez mid 90's works, can't help thinking that if there was one artist or label who'd benefit from well curated anthology box, it would be him.
Put together 10 hours of best Deadline harshness, and it would be a monument of noise. Some what the hell is this tape -category playlist picks from yesterday and today was two odd things. Just in some random box of tapes that may or may not been listened, but nevertheless been for about 15 years in the box Had no idea what it was. Hand painted tapes and j-cards, all hand made. Project name scratched into plastic box.
A-side was pretty good stuff. The laboratory personnel carrying out the analysis was blinded to the clinical history and the endoscopic findings of the patients. All patients underwent standard endoscopies performed by 4 senior gastroenterologists who were unaware of fecal calprotectin values at the time of the investigation. Biopsies were collected if appropriate as decided by the endoscopist. The endoscopists performing the follow up endoscopy were aware of the reason for the investigation positive test.
Results of numerical data are presented as mean standard deviation, SD or median interquartile range, IQR where appropriate. The Mann-Whitney U-test for two independent groups and the Kruskal-Wallis H-test for more than two independent groups were used to compare numerical data and the chi-square test was used to compare categorical data.
Correlations between numerical data were determined using Pearson or Kendall's tau correlation coefficient r where appropriate. Receiver operating characteristics analyses were carried out to determine the test characteristics of fecal calprotectin to identify a clinically significant finding in the gastrointestinal tract.
A p-value smaller than 0. Thirty-seven patients 6. Baseline characteristics are shown in Table 1. Fifteen patients received capsule endoscopy but none revealed significant findings. Study flow. Study flow of patients referred for colonoscopy and esophagogastroduodenoscopy EGD.
Table 2 lists adjudicated final diagnoses and respective median values of calprotectin. Evaluating the value of fecal calprotectin as a diagnostic test to identify significant gastrointestinal findings at endoscopy, we found an area under the receiver operating characteristics curve AUC of 0. Receiver Operating Characteristics Curve.
To identify clinically significant findings in the gastrointestinal tract, fecal calprotectin had an area under the receiver operating characteristics ROC curve of 0. The AUC of fecal calprotectin to identify clinically significant findings was better in the lower intestinal tract AUC 0. Diagnostic accuracy of fecal calprotectin. As a diagnostic test to identify significant findings in the upper gastrointestinal tract, fecal calprotectin showed an area under the receiver operating characteristics curve of 0.
The diagnostic ability of fecal calprotectin in the upper intestinal tract was less performant compared to the colon AUC 0. Interestingly, in patients with gastric mucosal lesions, fecal calprotectin values increased with disease severity Figure 4.
Fecal calprotectin and severity of mucosal damage. Boxplots median, 25 th and 75 th percentile of fecal calprotectin values in patients with normal endoscopic findings normal , gastric erosions erosion , gastric ulcer ulcer , and gastric cancer carcinoma.
When analyzed according to age, the diagnostic ability of fecal calprotectin was similar in patients younger than 50 years AUC 0. The median time to follow-up endoscopies was 11 days. Follow-up investigations 51 EGDs and 47 colonoscopies resulted in 44 additional findings, including 2 colorectal carcinomas, 6 colorectal adenomas, 1 crohn's disease, 1 ulcerative colitis, and 5 peptic ulcers. This prospective study in a large cohort of patients examined the use of calprotectin measurement in feces as a diagnostic test to identify clinically significant gastrointestinal findings in patients with abdominal discomfort referred for endoscopy.
These findings are of clinical importance as they encourage the use of this simple and easily available biomarker in the diagnostic approach to patients with abdominal discomfort, especially to decide upon the necessity to perform endoscopy. Over the last decade, the number of endoscopies performed by gastroenterologists has steadily increased both in the USA and in Europe [ 28 , 29 ]. Given the limited resources and ever increasing health-care costs, optimizing the appropriate selection of patients for endoscopy is crucial.
Unfortunately, selection based on symptoms is not reliable; even when compared to an expert panel, individual gastroenterologists tend to overestimate the appropriateness of endoscopies they perform [ 30 ].

Article information.May 07, · It has recently been suggested that fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) could be used for population-based screening owing to its high accuracy and adherence. Previous systematic reviews and meta-analyses have assessed the performance of FIT in average-risk populations. 10,11 However, the potential role of FIT for screening of individuals at Cited by:
