An extensive data set of daily hospital emergency room visits for asthma for two geographic areas (1953-77 in New Orleans and 1969-77 in New York City) was examined for seasonality. Previous studies using smaller data bases have reported an autumn increase (principally during October and November) in the number of emergency room visits for asthma in many(More)
e16620 Background: Patients with solid tumors and bone metastases often experience skeletal-related events (SREs) and pain. Although cost-utility models are often used to estimate treatment outcomes for metastatic cancer, limited information is available on utilities of SREs. The purpose of this study was to estimate the disutility of 4 SREs represented by(More)
Seven temperature-sensitive penicillin-tolerant mutants of Escherichia coli strain LD5 (thi lysA dapD) were isolated and characterized. Treatment with beta-lactams caused lysis of the mutants at 30 degrees C. Although growth of the mutants at 42 degrees C was inhibited by beta-lactams, no lysis occurred. The mutants were also slightly tolerant to(More)
