The intelligibility of the front vowels (/i/, /I/, /epsilon/, and /ae/) was investigated as sung in four different ways: (1) operatic, (2) in consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) context, (3) with a raised larynx, and (4) with both raised larynx and in CVC context. Al syllables were sung by a trained soprano at F4, A4, C sharp 5, F5, A5, and C sharp 6. Ten(More)
Dipicolinate vanadium(V) complexes oxidize lignin model complexes pinacol monomethyl ether (A), 2-phenoxyethanol (B), 1-phenyl-2-phenoxyethanol (C), and 1,2-diphenyl-2-methoxyethanol (D). With substrates having C-H bonds adjacent to the alcohol moiety (B-D), the C-H bond is broken in pyridine-d(5) solvent, yielding 2-phenoxyacetaldehyde from B,(More)
In this review we summarize the work conducted over the past decade that has advanced our knowledge of pulmonary diseases associated with exposure to beryllium that has provided a molecular-based understanding of the chemistry, immunopathology, and immunogenetics of beryllium toxicity. Beryllium is a strong and lightweight metal that generates and reflects(More)
In an effort to understand the molecular basis of chronic beryllium disease (CBD), a study of the chemical relationship between beryllium, antigen, and the major histocompatibility complex II, HLA-DP, was undertaken. A homology model of the HLA-DP protein was developed. An analysis of the sequences of HLA-DPB1 and HLA-DPA1 alleles most common among CBD(More)
The title complex, bis(tetraphenylphosphonium) dioxobis(pyridine-2,6-dicarbothioato-O,N,O')uranium(VI), (C(24)H(20)P)(2)[UO(2)(C(7)H(3)NO(2)S(2))(2)], was prepared by reacting two equivalents of pyridine-2,6-bis(monothiocarboxylate) (pdtc) with uranyl nitrate. The geometry of the eight-coordinate U atom is hexagonal bipyramidal, with the uranyl O atoms in(More)
A series of ionic liquids containing different paramagnetic anions have been prepared and all show paramagnetic behavior with potential applications for magnetic and electrochromic switching as well as novel magnetic transport; also, the tetraalkylphosphonium-based ionic liquids reveal anomalous magnetic behavior.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) can lead to treatment noncompliance in patients taking medications for chronic health conditions. Using the Intelligent Health Repository, NDCHealth's longitudinal, United States health care claims database, we examined the impact of treating ED on adherence to long-term therapies in previously nonadherent patients. Male patients(More)
INTRODUCTION A number of preference studies have been conducted with phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor medications demonstrating inconsistent findings. Additionally, limited information is available regarding real-world utilization patterns of PDE5 inhibitors. AIM To evaluate treatment patterns using real-world data for patients initiating(More)
