BACKGROUND Rapid and transient depletion of tryptophan (TRP) causes a brief depressive relapse in most patients successfully treated with and taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, but little change in drug-free, symptomatic depressed patients. This study investigates the effects of TRP depletion in drug-free subjects in clinical remission from a(More)
BACKGROUND Adequate pain assessment is critical for evaluating the efficacy of analgesic treatment in clinical practice and during the development of new therapies. Yet the currently used scores of global pain intensity fail to reflect the diversity of pain manifestations and the complexity of underlying biological mechanisms. We have developed a tool for a(More)
The primary purpose of this pilot study was to compare improvement of symptoms and role functioning in women with postpartum depression after 8 weeks of treatment with antidepressants. The study was a secondary data analysis from the preliminary data of a double blind, randomized clinical trial. The participants (n=61) were primarily Caucasian and slightly(More)
The generation of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) will depend on the accurate recapitulation of embryonic haematopoiesis. In the early embryo, HSCs develop from the haemogenic endothelium (HE) and are specified in a Notch-dependent manner through a process named endothelial-to-haematopoietic transition (EHT). As HE(More)
Let Γ(Z n) be a zero divisor graph whose vertices are nonzero zero divisors of Z n and whose edges connect two vertices whose product is zero modulo n. Then Γ(Z n) represents the complement of Γ(Z n). The authors explore the center of Γ(Z n) and Γ(Z n). Further study is done on planarity, independent sets and cliques, vertices of minimum degree, and(More)
Loop diuretics such as bumetanide and furosemide enhance aminoglycoside ototoxicity when co-administered to patients and animal models. The underlying mechanism(s) is poorly understood. We investigated the effect of these diuretics on cellular uptake of aminoglycosides, using Texas Red-tagged gentamicin (GTTR), and intracellular/whole-cell recordings of(More)
In order to generalize the results of an experiment beyond the specific stimuli employed, it is necessary to consider variance due to stimulus sampling. This can be accomplished by treating stimuli as a random effect rather than the traditional procedure of treating stimuli as a fixed effect. The serious consequences of the traditional approach are(More)
Test: The relationship between scored fanasy aggression and aggressive behavior. This study attempted to determine the relationship between fantasy aggression and behavioral aggression, and whether fantasy aggression measured by the Thematic Apperception Test is related to behavioral aggression. Participant TAT protocols from psychology clinic files were(More)
