Fifty children who had symptomatic sickle cell disease received matched sibling marrow allografts between September 1991 and March 1999, with Kaplan-Meier probabilities of survival and event-free survival of 94% and 84%, respectively. Twenty-six patients (16 male, 10 female) had at least 2 years of follow-up after transplantation and were evaluated for late(More)
The wild-type (wt) p53 tumor suppressor gene is commonly inactivated in human malignancies, either by mutations or by loss of expression. An additional proposed mechanism for inactivation of wt-p53 is amplification of the murine double minute 2 (MDM2) gene and overexpression of the MDM2 protein, which binds to p53 and eliminates its tumor suppressor(More)
Five pregnant beagle bitches were treated with 2.5 mg mifepristone/kg body weight, twice a day, for 4.5 days starting at Day 32 of gestation. Results of fetal ultrasonography and assay of serum progesterone concentrations every 2-4 days were compared to those in 5 control bitches. Mifepristone resulted in a premature (P less than 0.01) termination of(More)
Non-response of the autonomic orienting response (OR), as indexed jointly by deficient skin conductance (SCR) and finger pulse amplitude responding (FPAR), has been shown to occur with excessive frequency in the schizophrenic population. The present study is an attempt to replicate earlier evidence that SCR-OR and FPAR-OR, when measured in concert, could(More)
Large head total hip arthroplasty (THA) is known to increase range of motion to impingement and decrease risk of dislocation, however, this is dependent on accurate component positioning and patient anatomy. In this study, a computer-aided design model was used to determine the effects of component positioning on range of motion to impingement with(More)
OBJECTIVES The cancer burden in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) is substantial. The purpose of this study was to identify and describe country and region-specific patterns of radiotherapy (RT) facilities in LMIC. METHODS A systematic review of the literature was undertaken. A search strategy was developed to include articles on radiation capacity(More)
Neuronal damage in HIV-associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND) has been linked to inflammation induced by soluble factors released by HIV-infected, and non-infected, activated macrophages/microglia (HIV M/M) in the brain. It has been suggested that aberrant neuronal cell cycle activation determines cell fate in response to these toxic factors. We have(More)
Schizophrenia is said to be associated with a modest excess of winter births. We examined relations of season of birth (SOB) to the skin conductance response (SCR) and finger pulse amplitude response (FPAR) components of the orienting response (OR) in 83 schizophrenic patients, 59 depressed patients, and 81 normal controls. SCR-OR nonresponding was more(More)
Schizophrenic patients are frequently orienting nonresponders to innocuous stimuli, become responsive to significant target signals, and become hyporesponsive again on prolonged repetition. We wish to a) determine whether schizophrenic patients can display orienting response (OR) flexibility, responding to newly designated targets and ceasing to respond to(More)
