BACKGROUND African-American women with breast cancer have poorer survival than European-American women. After adjustment for socioeconomic variables, survival differences diminish but do not disappear, possibly because of residual differences in health care access, biology, or behavior. This study compared breast cancer survival in African-American and(More)
Eighteen healthy volunteers received mizolastine 5 mg, 15 mg or 45 mg, terfenadine 60 mg, triprolidine 10 mg or placebo in a 6-way crossover, double blind study. Following each dose, subjects performed a series of tests of cognitive function and psychomotor performance at 1, 3, 5, 8 and 24 hours post-dose. The test battery included critical flicker fusion,(More)
Modern humans possess a highly derived thumb that is substantially stronger and more robust than the fingers. Previous hypotheses concerning the evolution of such traits have focused upon the manipulation of hammerstones during stone tool production and of stone tools during their use. To date there has been no research on the manipulative pressures exerted(More)
1. The effects of a range of doses of litoxetine (twice daily for 4 days), a novel specific serotonin re-uptake inhibitor, were evaluated in young and middle aged volunteers. 2. Psychometric testing was carried out at various time points on days 1 and 4 of each treatment period. The test battery consisted of critical flicker fusion (CFF), choice reaction(More)
Phylogenetic analyses require evolutionarily independent characters, but there is no consensus, nor has there been a clear methodology presented on how to define character independence in a phylogenetic context, particularly within a complex morphological structure such as the skull. Following from studies of craniofacial development, we hypothesize that(More)
