A community-based study of chronic fatigue syndrome.
Earlier findings suggesting that CFS is a syndrome primarily affecting white, middle-class patients were not supported, and the highest levels of CFS were consistently found among women, minority groups, and persons with lower levels of education and occupational status. Expand
An enhanced International Prognostic Index (NCCN-IPI) for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma treated in the rituximab era.
The NCCN-IPI is easy to apply and more powerful than the IPI for predicting survival in the rituximab era and demonstrated enhanced discrimination for both low- and high-risk patients. Expand
Comparison of sentinel lymph node biopsy alone and completion axillary lymph node dissection for node-positive breast cancer.
Compared with SLNB alone, completion AlND does not appear to improve outcomes for breast cancer patients with microscopic nodal metastases; however, there was a nonsignificant trend toward better outcomes with completion ALND for those with macroscopic disease. Expand
Human male recombination maps for individual chromosomes.
The first (to the authors' knowledge) recombination maps for every autosome in the human male obtained by new immunofluorescence techniques followed by centromere-specific multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization in human spermatocytes are presented. Expand
Temporal and biomechanical characteristics of oropharyngeal swallow in younger and older men.
The hypothesis of reduced muscular reserve in the swallows of older men as compared to younger men is supported and the potential for exercise to improve reserve is discussed. Expand
Site of disease and treatment protocol as correlates of swallowing function in patients with head and neck cancer treated with chemoradiation
The relationship between type of chemoradiation treatment, site of disease, and swallowing function has not been sufficiently examined in patients with head and neck cancer treated primarily withExpand
Closure mechanisms of laryngeal vestibule during swallow.
Findings indicate a tightly organized neural program for some pharyngeal swallow events with systematic variability with volume in other pharynGEal events, possibly modulated by afferent input from the periphery. Expand
Multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis of aneuploidy and diploidy frequencies in 225,846 sperm from 10 normal men.
Multicolor FISH analysis permits an accurate distinction between disomic and diploid sperm and allows analysis of large sample sizes, and may be useful for future studies of potential environmental and occupational mutagens. Expand
The effects of taste and consistency on swallow physiology in younger and older healthy individuals: a surface electromyographic study.
Results revealed that the start of submental muscle activation was significantly later in older participants than in younger participants, and a more pronounced effect of taste was manifested as earlier submental or infrahyoid muscle activation when the three tastants were added to a thicker consistency.

Assessing the impact of total quality management and organizational culture on multiple outcomes of care for coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients.
There was little effect of TQM and organizational culture on multiple endpoints of care for CABG patients and there is a need to examine further the relationships among individual professional skills and motivations, group and microsystem team processes, specifically tailored interventions, and organization-wide culture, decision support processes, and incentives.
