Starvation of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) for an exogenous source of carbon and energy (C-starvation) induces the starvation-stress response (SSR). The SSR functions to (i) maintain viability during long-term C-starvation and (ii) generate cross-resistance to other environmental stresses. The SSR is, at least partially, under… (More)

Six patients had preflight and inflight plasma epinephrine and norepinephrine levels determined. All 14 patients were monitored for ventricular arrhythmias. The mean… (More)
Lateral projection flexion and extension radiographs of the cervical spine are stress views. They are necessary to evaluate unstable ligamentous injury, which may not be apparent on neutral unstressed films. As there is very little literature on the proper evaluation of these radiographic views, we reviewed 150 consecutive cases from our Emergency… (More)
