The formation of dystrophic neurites associated with beta amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD) appears to involve a transformation of normal neuronal cytoskeletal proteins. In order to investigate what may be the earliest neuronal changes associated with the development of dystrophic neurites, we have examined the neurochemical profile of abnormal(More)
This paper presents a new method for predicting turning points. The paper formally defines a turning point; develops a probit model for estimating the probability of a turning point; and then examines both the in-sample and out-of-sample forecasting performance of the model. The model performs better than some other methods for predicting turning points.(More)
Twenty six cases of cerebellar hemorrhages were reviewed and analyzed. Two patients were comatose on admission and showed clinical evidence of brainstem compression; they were successfully revived after evacuation of the hematomas. This was in contrast with six other comatose patients who did not have evacuation and subsequently died within 48 hours. The(More)
During 1986–1997, the number of tuberculosis (TB) cases among foreign-born persons in the United States increased by 56%, from 4,925 cases (22% of the national total) to 7,702 cases (39% of the national total). As the percentage of reported TB cases among foreign-born persons continues to increase, the elimination of TB in the United States will depend(More)
Two cases of histologically proven cerebrovascular malformation were detected by computed tomography (CT) scanning but not by cerebral angiography. One of the patients had a cavernous angioma and the other an arteriovenous malformation. Caution is advised in assuming that angiographically avascular lesions demonstrable by CT scanning are not vascular(More)
