PURPOSE This study investigated the relationships among four methods of detecting depression in patients with fibromyalgia. METHODS Data were obtained from 100 women (mean age 43 years) who had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Instruments included a computerized Diagnostic Interview Schedule (C-DIS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), an adjusted(More)
Plasma membrane vesicle preparations from mouse cerebral cortex actively accumulated [3H]serotonin upon the imposition of a K+ gradient (in greater than out), a Na+ gradient (out greater than in), and the presence of external Cl-. Maximal stimulation of uptake by internal K+ occurred at 15 mM and half-maximal stimulation at 2 mM. Internal K+ did not enhance(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of a 6 month group therapy program on the treatment of patients with fibromyalgia (FM). Since FM is a common problem in rheumatology practice, a program was designed to treat patients in a group setting using allied health professionals. METHODS The FM group (15 to 25 patients) met once a week for 6 months. The average(More)
Preparations of plasma membrane vesicles were used as a tool to study the properties of the serotonin transporter in the central nervous system. The vesicles were obtained after hypotonic shock of synaptosomes purified from mouse cerebral cortex. Uptake of [3H]serotonin had a Na+-dependent and Na+-independent component. The Na+-dependent uptake was(More)
Anomaly detection in a Wireless Sensor Network is an important aspect of data analysis in order to facilitate intrusion and event detection. A key challenge is creating optimal classifiers constructed from training sets in which the anomaly rates are varying due to the existence of non-stationary distributions in the data. In this paper we propose an(More)
—Anomaly detection in a wireless sensor network (WSN) is an important aspect of data analysis in order to identify data items that significantly differ from normal data. A characteristic of the data generated by a WSN is that the data distribution may alter over the lifetime of the network due to the changing nature of the phenomenon being observed. Anomaly(More)
[3H]Serotonin uptake into mouse cerebrocortical synaptosomes was decreased by the K+ ionophore valinomycin, the K+ and Na+ ionophore gramicidin, and the proton ionophore carbonylcyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone. The Na+/H+ exchanger monensin reduced uptake at non-depolarizing concentrations. Uptake was also decreased by inhibition of the Na+, K(+)-ATPase(More)
Male Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to chlorine-based disinfectants in the drinking water from weaning to 12 weeks of age, at which time they were terminated and assessed for immune competence. Chlorine-based drinking water disinfectants used were sodium hypochlorite (5, 15 and 30 ppm) and monochloramine (9, 19 and 38 ppm). Parameters of immunity measured(More)
Principal component analysis and the residual error is an effective anomaly detection technique. In an environment where anomalies are present in the training set, the derived principal components can be skewed by the anomalies. A further aspect of anomaly detection is that data might be distributed across different nodes in a network and their(More)
Injection of rats with cyclophosphamide (CY) after their consumption of a novel saccharin-flavored drinking solution resulted in a conditioned aversion to saccharin and a conditioned suppression of natural killer cell (NKC) cytotoxicity. In this study, male Sprague-Dawley rats were conditioned by pairing saccharin with 50 mg/kg CY, an immunosuppressive drug(More)
