INTRODUCTION For decades it has been known that patients use emergency departments for nonurgent care needs. This study was conducted to help determine how the health care community can assist patients achieve consistent health care while meeting the patient's perceived needs. METHOD A descriptive qualitative study was conducted based on interviews with(More)
1. Phosphatidylinositol phospholipase C (PI-PLC) treatment of rachitic rat matrix vesicles (MVs) released about 80% of membrane-bound alkaline phosphatase (ALP), AMPase, PPiase into the media. 2. About 20% hydrolytic activity was not released from MV membranes by PI-PLC treatment. 3. SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and Western blot analysis showed(More)
3636 Background: From 03/03 to 11/03, we prospectively evaluated the impact of PET scans on radiation treatment volumes when compared to CT scans in 25 patients with Gastrointestinal (GI)tumors. METHODS 18 patients were scanned on our GE Big Bore PET-CT scanner(PET aperture 70cm) and 7 on our standard aperture GE-PET-CT scanner. CT-PET images were(More)
Venous haemangioma of the synovium of one knee also involved adjacent, skin and muscle of the leg in a 4-yr-old girl. Phleboliths were seen in the knee on X-ray. Histologically, the synovium contained large venous channels and was laden with haemosiderin. On electron microscopy, the synovial cells were morpholgically most like synthetic (B) cells.(More)
A mechanistic study of the anation of type 2 Cu(II) in fully oxidized laccase by azide and thiocyanate ions (X-) is reported. The rate data support a mechanism involving rapid formation of an outer-sphere complex (laccase . X-) followed by rate-limiting dissociative interchange to give the inner-sphere complex (laccase-X-) product: (formula; see text) Rate(More)
The reactions of copper(II)-aliphatic polyamine complexes with cysteine, cysteine methyl ester, penicillamine, and glutathione have been investigated, with the goal of understanding the relationship between RS- -Cu(II) adduct structure and preferred redox decay pathway. Considerable mechanistic flexibility exists within this class of mercapto amino acid(More)
