Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become a popular alternative to traditional public-switched telephone network (PSTN) networks that provides advantages of low cost and flexible advanced “digital” features. The flexibility of the VoIP system and the convergence of voice and data networks brings with it additional security risks. These are in addition(More)
Nosocomial Candida albicans infections have become a major cause of morbidity and mortality in neonates in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). To determine the possible modes of acquisition of C. albicans in hospitalized neonates, we conducted a prospective study at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Ga. Clinical samples for fungal surveillance cultures(More)
CASTLE was a randomized 96-week study that demonstrated that atazanavir/ritonavir (ATV/r) was noninferior to lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) in treatment-naïve HIV-infected patients. Analyses were carried out among patients who received ATV/r in the CASTLE study to better understand the clinical significance of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia associated with(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the long-term efficacy, safety, adherence, and quality of life (QoL) of a once-daily efavirenz-based antiretroviral regimen in two 96-week prospective open-label single-arm studies of treatment-naïve HIV-1-infected patients. METHODS Patients received once-daily efavirenz 600 mg and lamivudine 300 mg with either enteric-coated(More)
In the present work, the conformational dynamics and folding pathways of i-motif DNA were studied in solution and in the gas-phase as a function of the solution pH conditions using circular dichroism (CD), photoacoustic calorimetry analysis (PAC), trapped ion mobility spectrometry-mass spectrometry (TIMS-MS), and molecular dynamics (MD). Solution studies(More)
CONTEXT Decisions in the organization of safe and effective rural maternity care are complex, difficult, value laden and fraught with uncertainty, and must often be based on imperfect information. Decision analysis offers tools for addressing these complexities in order to help decision-makers determine the best use of resources and to appreciate the(More)
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an open standard protocol and constitutes the provisioning of services like Internet Telephony and Instant Messaging. Vulnerabilities in SIP have made it possible to exploit it and launch many of the known internet attacks and also few specific attacks, thus affecting the services deploying SIP for session management.

This paper presents the Theory of Retailer Price Promotions (TRPP) for Consumer Packaged Goods (CPGs). The theory states that under several conditions that completely apply to CPGs, incremental retail sales generated by promotional price discounts are entirely incremental to the promoting manufacturer, the promoting retailer and the category, overall.
