Osteopenia is a well recognized medical complication of anorexia nervosa (AN). The mechanism of bone loss is not fully understood and there is uncertainty about its management. New markers of bone turnover have been developed. C-terminal type 1 propeptide (PICP) is a measure of bone formation and urinary pyridinolines such as deoxypyridinoline (DPYRX) and(More)
Community-based coalitions have become accepted vehicles for addressing complex health problems. Few articles have described the challenges and lessons learned from such a process. The purpose of this paper is two-fold: 1) to describe the processes involved in building and maintaining the REACH 2010 Alabama Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Coalition(More)

SecE, an essential component of the bacterial SecAYEG translocase, mediates protein translocation across the cytoplasmic membrane. In the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts an SecE homologue, cpSecE, has recently been identified. In this report we show that insertion of cpSecE does not require stromal extract, indicating that signal recognition particle is(More)

Osteoporose ist eine häufig übersehene Begleiterscheinung der Anorexia nervosa (AN). Der genaue pathogenetische Mechanismus ist derzeit noch unklar. Aus den bisherigen Forschungsergebnissen läßt sich jedoch ableiten, daß es bei Patientinnen mit AN durch Mangelernährung, geringes Körpergewicht, Amenorrhoe und Hypercortisolismus zu einer Verminderung der(More)
Osteoporosis has been shown to be a relatively common complication of anorexia nervosa (AN). So far the exact mechanisms which are implicated are not fully clarified. Several factors such as malnutrition, reduced body weight, amenorrhea, and hypercortisolaemia seem to be involved. There is a strong relationship with the duration of amenorrhea and--in some(More)
