X-linked hypophosphatemic (Hyp) mice are a model of human sex-linked vitamin D-resistant rickets. Young adult Hyp mice are characterized by osteomalacia and decreased bone mineral content. However, older heterozygous Hyp female mice increase in bone mineral content with age so that by one year of age the bone mass/mm femoral length equals or exceeds normal(More)
Training opinion leaders in a men's residence hall in a brief program focused on communication and life skills is an effective way to stimulate peer discussions on HIV prevention and risk reduction and appears likely to have positive influences on behavioral change or intention. The program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was extremely cost-effective(More)
X-linked hypophosphatemic (Hyp) mice are a model for human X-linked (familial) hypophosphatemia (vitamin D-resistant rickets). In several studies, Hyp mice have been shown to exhibit either normal intestinal phosphate absorption or malabsorption of phosphate. These apparently conflicting reports led us to further investigate intestinal phosphate absorption.(More)
YoungHyp mice malabsorb phosphate from the jejunum at 4 weeks of age. This has been attributed to both low plasma levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D and to intestinal resistance to stimulation by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. To differentiate between these two hypotheses, 4 week old normal andHyp mice were treated with 0, 17, 50, or 150 ng/kg/day of(More)
