'The Bristol Palaeobiology Research Group has a long-standing collaboration with IVPP
, and this enables the mix of excellent specimens and excellent research.
To correlate Intravesical Prostatic Protrusion (IVPP) with International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS), Quality of Life Index (QOL), Uroflowmetry.
Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IVPP) is graded into three with Transabdominal Ultrasound (TAUS).
This is a non-randomized prospective cohort study compared on the respective grades and the treatment is said to be effective and complete when Uroflowmetry Peak flow >15 mL/sec, IPSS mild or no symptoms, QOL improvement by >-2 grades and IVPP absent or grade I.
AUR and IVPP: 34 patients had acute urinary retention with Intravesical prostatic protrusion due to Benign prostatic hypertrophy (34%); 85% of AUR pts.

However, where body size data is lacking, size has been estimated for crocodiles based on skull/ body length ratios for extant Crocodylus (Wermuth, 1964; Bellairs, 1969), and for choristoderes based on the proportions of a complete articulated skeleton of the neochoristodere Ikechosaurus pijiagouensis (IVPP V13283, Liu, 2004) with a head:body ratio of 1:6.2 (Table 4).
Although, the body proportions of this Asian choristodere are still unknown, the total length would have been less than 1 m even if it was long-necked (by comparison with the largest specimens of the Lower Cretaceous Hyphalosaurus IVPP V11075).
The parade of fossils continued in the May 27 NATURE, when Xing Xu of the IVPP
and his colleagues described Beipiaosaurus, another theropod with a fibrous coat.
Richard Miller's Institute of Vocal Performance Pedagogy (IVPP
), which was given in a number of locations world-wide and which consistently attracted participants in large numbers, was designed to answer a number of questions:
The team of palaeontologists from the University of Bristol, UK, the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP
) in Beijing, University College Dublin and the Open University report two kinds of melanosomes found in the feathers of numerous birds and dinosaurs from the world-famous Jehol beds of NE China.
Nearly 1,000 vertebrate fossils and a collection of stone tools were found at the excavation site about 45 km southwest of Beijing, according to Gao Xing, vice-director of the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP
