Aged individuals have depressed cell-mediated immunity and diminished T cell proliferation to mitogenic and antigenic stimuli. Because T cell responses depend on the surface expression and normal function of interleukin 2 receptors, we measured the quantities and affinities of cell surface IL-2R and the amount of soluble IL-2R alpha chain (p55) release in(More)
Dermatomyositis (DM) has been associated with gastrointestinal malignancy but not with polyps or adenoma. We report a case of villous adenoma associated with DM. An 80-year-old white woman was referred for a rash of 2 months' duration that was suggestive of DM. On examination, Gottron's papules and heliotrope rash were seen. Muscle strength was 4/5 in the(More)
We studied levels of soluble interleukin-2 receptors (IL-2R) in serial serum samples obtained from 93 patients with Kawasaki syndrome, using a double-antibody "sandwich" enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technique. Concentrations of soluble IL-2R were significantly increased in Kawasaki syndrome patients in the first 4 weeks of illness when compared with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether epsilon-aminocaproic acid (EACA) load of 50 mg∙kg-1 before skin incision, and infusion of 25 mg∙kg-1∙h-1 until skin closure during cranial vault reconstruction (CVR) were associated with decreased estimated blood loss and transfusion requirements. BACKGROUND Antifibrinolytic medications decrease bleeding and transfusion(More)
OBJECTIVE Epratuzumab, a monoclonal antibody that targets CD22, modulates B cell signaling without substantial reductions in the number of B cells. The aim of this study was to report the results of 2 phase III multicenter randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, the EMBODY 1 and EMBODY 2 trials, assessing the efficacy and safety of epratuzumab(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the extent to which a sequential anesthetic technique 1) shortens time under sedation for thyroplasty with arytenoid adduction (TP-AA), 2) affects the total operative time, and 3) changes the voice outcome compared to TP-AA performed entirely under sedation/analgesia. STUDY DESIGN Case-control study. METHODS A new sequential(More)
