Sclerosteosis is a progressive sclerosing bone dysplasia with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Radiologically, it is characterized by a generalized hyperostosis and sclerosis leading to a markedly thickened and sclerotic skull, with mandible, ribs, clavicles and all long bones also being affected. Due to narrowing of the foramina of the cranial(More)
We have examined several analogs of 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) [1,25-(OH)(2)D(3)] in an animal model of osteoporosis (ovariectomized rats) to identify a compound with a greater therapeutic range than 1,25-(OH)(2)D(3) for treatment of this bone disease. Here, we report that one analog, Ro-26-9228, had a bone-protecting effect but did not induce(More)
This paper describes the overall architecture and design aspects of a hybrid relational and XML database system called System RX. We believe that such a system is fundamental in the evolution of enterprise data management solutions: XML and relational data will co-exist and complement each other in enterprise solutions. Furthermore, a successful XML(More)

BACKGROUND There are presently no available therapeutic options for patients with peanut allergy. OBJECTIVE We sought to investigate the safety, efficacy, and immunologic effects of peanut sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). METHODS After a baseline oral food challenge (OFC) of up to 2 g of peanut powder (approximately 50% protein; median successfully(More)
Comprehensive and efficient support for XML data management is a rapidly increasing requirement for database systems. To address this requirement, DB2 Universal Databasee (UDB) now combines relational data management with native XML support. This makes DB2t a truly hybrid database management system with first-class support for both XML and relational data(More)
