— This paper demonstrates that careful tuning of the OBEX and IrLAP negotiated parameters allows OBEX to scale well for use with large data objects and high transmission rates. Due to the substantial time overhead inherent in link turnarounds, minimizing turnarounds during the transmission of a large object helps to maximimize link efficiency. The IrLAP(More)
BACKGROUND Posttraumatic osteoarthritis (OA) is a variant of OA that can develop after articular injury. Although the mechanism(s) of posttraumatic OA are uncertain, the presence and impact of postinjury proteolytic enzymes on articular cartilage remain unknown. To our knowledge, there are no studies that evaluate the presence of matrix metalloproteinases(More)
The ratio of the zinc content of boar spermatozoa obtained from semen cooled to 4 degrees C for 30 min to that of the original room temperature control (20-26 degrees C) was constant at 2-28 +/- 0-16 in 22 samples of fresh whole semen from 12 animals. The same ratio occurred when zinc (0 to 0.6 mM in citrate buffer) was added to semen or washed spermatozoa.(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic scapulothoracic bursectomy with partial superomedial angle scapulectomy has been described as a treatment for persistent scapulothoracic bursitis with varying results. PURPOSE To evaluate patients after arthroscopic scapulothoracic bursectomy utilizing validated functional outcome instruments. STUDY DESIGN Case series. METHODS(More)
This study was designed to examine whether lactoferrin, a glycoprotein contained in neutrophils which binds free iron, mediates the anemia associated with renal cell carcinoma. Preoperative hematocrit, urinalysis, serum iron, total iron binding capacity, and ferritin levels were obtained in 24 patients with hypernephroma. At the time of radical nephrectomy,(More)
