Collegan-induced platelet aggregation in mouse citrated platelet-rich (PRP) was associated with 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) release and degranulation. Adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP) induced monophasic and reversible aggregation with no degranulation. Mouse platelets gave no response to adrenaline but changed shape and sometimes aggregated in response to(More)
The effect of nabumetone (BRL 14777) on human platelet reactivity ex vivo was compared with that of naproxen at equitherapeutic doses in the same six subjects. Nabumetone had only a weak and equivocal effect on collagen-induced and second phase aggregation in response to adenosine diphosphate and adrenaline. After nabumetone, platelets fully aggregated in(More)
Assessed the utility of two brief neuropsychological tests in screening patients referred to a neuropsychological consulting service. Forty-three cortically impaired and 19 neurologically intact Ss completed the Cognitive Capacity Screening Exam (CCSE) and the Memory-for-Designs (MFD). The results of these tests analyzed individually and in combination were(More)
Predictable success of autogenous graft and implant reconstructions is critically dependent on preoperative alignment and prosthetic considerations planned by the surgeon and the restorative dentist in a team approach. In such cases the surgeon has an opportunity to place accurate bone grafts that allow implants to be secured in both the correct position(More)
A series of substituted 1,2-benzisothiazol-3-ones was synthesized, and the compounds were tested for ability to inhibit platelet aggregation induced by adenosine diphosphate and collagen in rats and guinea pigs ex vivo. Alkyl substituents at the 2-position bearing a basic group were necessary for ex vivo activity. Several of the compounds were potent(More)
Developed and evaluated a home-based contracting program to determine its effect on the compliance rates of discharged alcohol patients to a disulfiram (antabuse) regimen. The three comparison groups included (a) no contract/no recording; (b) contract/recording; and (c) contract/recording plus instructions for positive reinforcement. Twenty-five patients(More)
