Normative bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) values for the total body (TB), proximal femur (PF), and antero-posterior lumbar spine (LS) were obtained from a large cross-sectional sample of children and adolescents who were 8–17 years of age. There were 977 scans for the TB, 892 for the PF, and 666 for the LS; bone mineral values were(More)
OBJECTIVE Adequate nutrition is paramount for premature infants. Longitudinal information is scant on the effects of early nutrition and later growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of early energy and protein provision in premature infants on adolescent body composition and blood pressure. METHODS In 2007-2008 we obtained data(More)
In The Onion Router (TOR) system, anonymity is provided by router services run by TOR users who volunteer their computational resources. Scalability concerns stem from the TOR design because volunteers lack an incentive to participate. A payment scheme has been previously introduced which aims at providing economic incentives for volunteers in hopes of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of preterm low birth weight on bone mineral content in adolescence. In 2007 to 2008, data on adolescents were obtained for study, including 16 females and 25 males who were born preterm (≤37 weeks' gestation) between October 1, 1989, and December 31, 1995, with a birth weight of less than 1850 g.(More)
OBJECTIVE We previously demonstrated a significant reduction in our incidence of chronic lung disease in our NICU using potentially better practices of avoiding delivery room endotracheal intubation and using early nasal CPAP. We sought to demonstrate whether these improvements were sustained and or improved over time. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a(More)
