Risperidone in children with autism and serious behavioral problems.
Risperidone was effective and well tolerated for the treatment of tantrums, aggression, or self-injurious behavior in children with autistic disorder and the benefit was maintained at six months. Expand
Parathyroid hormone as a therapy for idiopathic osteoporosis in men: effects on bone mineral density and bone markers.
PTH is a potent stimulator of skeletal dynamics inMen with idiopathic, low turnover osteoporosis; is associated with substantial increases in lumbar spine and hip bone density; and may prove to be an efficacious anabolic agent in men with this disorder. Expand
The decline in hip bone density after gastric bypass surgery is associated with extent of weight loss.
After Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, there was evidence of calcium and vitamin D malabsorption, and hip bone density rapidly declined, which was strongly associated with weight loss itself. Expand
The natural history of primary hyperparathyroidism with or without parathyroid surgery after 15 years.
Parathyroidectomy led to normalization of biochemical indices and sustained increases in BMD, which raises questions regarding how long patients with PHPT should be followed up without intervention. Expand
Characteristics of adult celiac disease in the USA: results of a national survey
Patients with celiac disease in the United States have a long duration of symptoms and consider their diagnosis delayed, and improved quality of life after diagnosis is common, with an increased risk of developing small intestine malignancies. Expand
Prospective Study of Gut Hormone and Metabolic Changes After Adjustable Gastric Banding and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Differences in levels of gut hormones may play a role in promoting greater weight loss and insulin sensitivity after RYGB compared with LAGB, however, weight loss may be limited by decreases in free T3 and leptin. Expand
Water Partitioning in Mozzarella Cheese and Its Relationship to Cheese Meltability
The aim of this study was to determine what happens to water in Mozzarella cheeses during storage and to relate those changes to cheese microstructure and functionality. A reduced fat (8% fat)Expand
Normocalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism: further characterization of a new clinical phenotype.
Patients seen in a referral center with normocalcemic hyperparathyroidism have more substantial skeletal involvement than is typical in PHPT and develop more features and complications over time. Expand
Increased bone mineral density after parathyroidectomy in primary hyperparathyroidism.
In patients meeting surgical guidelines, parathyroidectomy is associated with improved bone mineral density, and bone density rose at all skeletal sites (lumbar spine, femoral neck, and the radius) in the 4 yr after surgery. Expand
Biochemistry, genetics, and applications of exopolysaccharide production in Streptococcus thermophilus: a review.
The understanding of the genetics, physiology, and functionality of bacterial exopolysaccharides continues to improve, novel applications for polysaccharide-producing cultures are likely to emerge inside and outside the dairy industry. Expand
