One of our patients was switched to a typical antipsychotic, with an improvement in the galactorrhea. The other patient was continued on risperidone due to a robust response, while her galactorrhea was partially treated with(More)

The first patient was treated with an intravenous phosphorus infusion. For the second patient, hypophosphatemia was corrected, during hemodiafiltration, with the use(More)

We describe a cardiac transplant patient, who while being maintained with hemodialysis because of tobramycin-induced acute renal failure, was given Foscarnet for disseminated CMV infection.

This paper addresses the problem of Query-by-Example Spoken Term Detection (QbE-STD). Posteriorgrams have been widely used in the research on QbE-STD. Features based on articulatory classes are known to be robust to phonemic variations. The articulatory features like voicing and place of articulation are the main distinguishing features among some plosives(More)
