OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) over 1 year in Latino poultry processing workers. METHODS Symptoms and nerve conduction studies were used to identify Latino poultry processing workers (106 wrists) and Latinos in other manual labor occupations (257 wrists) that did not have CTS at baseline, and these individuals were(More)
After pancreatectomy and heterotopic pancreatic allotransplantation in dogs, there was a pattern of endocrine activity similar to that found following a combination of pancreatic denervation and total transposition of the pancreatic venous effluent from the portal of the systemic venous circulation. Denervation of the pancreas alone or total venous(More)
Pancreatic endocrine function was studied in forty dogs after ligation or free i.p. drainage of the pancreatic duct, with or without simultaneous partial pancreatectomy. Shrinkage and fibrosis of the pancreas occurred in all dogs, with equal severity in the open duct and duct-tied groups. Fasting blood sugars remained within the normal range but fasting(More)
The mortality experience of agricultural extension agents in the Cooperative Extension Service (CES) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture who died during the period January 1, 1970-December 31, 1979 (n = 1,495 white males) was evaluated in proportionate-mortality and case-control studies. The proportionate-mortality analysis was used to identify cancers(More)
The mortality of forest conservationists and soil conservationists in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) who died during January 1, 1970-December 31, 1979 (N = 1,411 white males) while actively employed or while receiving a pension was evaluated. The proportionate mortality analysis was used to identify cancers that might be elevated in this(More)
We evaluated the mortality of 835 white male and 36 female laboratory workers employed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture who died between January 1, 1970, and December 31, 1979. For males, the mortality odds ratio for all cancers was 1.0 (95% confidence interval = 0.8-1.2). Colon cancer, lymphosarcoma and reticulosarcoma, nonmalignant diseases of the(More)
After heterotopic pancreatic allotransplantation in dogs and in the absence of rejection there was a fasting normoglycemia with a marked hyperinsulinemia. On intravenous glucose tolerance testing and intravenous glucagon testing, the blood sugar response of dogs receiving no immunosuppression was normal but the response in dogs receiving immunosuppressive(More)
Long-term consumption of ethanol affects cortical areas that are important for learning and memory, cognition, and decision-making. Deficits in cortical function may contribute to alcohol-abuse disorders by impeding an individual's ability to control drinking. Previous studies from this laboratory show that acute ethanol reduces activity of lateral(More)
Pancreatic endocrine function was investigated in dogs after heterotopic pancreatic allotransplantation. A marked hyperinsulinemia was found in peripheral venous blood within the first 60 min postoperatively. This was associated with hypoglycemia and hypokalemia occurring within the next 2 to 3 hr resulting eventually in death. The hypoglycemia could be(More)
Evidence from a large number of preclinical studies suggests that chronic exposure to drugs of abuse, such as psychostimulants or ethanol induces changes in glutamatergic transmission in key brain areas associated with reward and control of behavior. These changes include alterations in the expression of ionotropic glutamate receptors including(More)
