A light- and electron-microscopic study of the small arterial vessels and capillaries in muscle from 20 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy failed to adduce any direct morphological evidence that the necrobiotic muscle lesions in this disease are produced by muscle ischaemia. However the electron-microscopic studies showed that the basement membrane(More)
Native polyacrylamide gels of extracellular proteins produced by several Streptomyces isolates grown with suberin were assayed in situ for esterase activity. Two pathogenic isolates of Streptomyces scabies from different geographical regions were found to produce a similar esterase activity that was not produced by nonpathogenic strains. After treatment(More)
The high DPAT sensitivity (HDS) and low DPAT sensitivity (LDS) rat lines are the result of selective breeding for differences in the hypothermic response to acute treatment with the 5-HT(1A) receptor agonist 8-hydroxydipropylaminotetralin (8-OHDPAT). The HDS rats exhibit a much greater hypothermic response than do the LDS rats. The present study examined(More)
Thermoelastic stress analysis was used to examine stresses on the anterior surface of patellae after patellar bone block excision for autogenous graft anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Complications of anterior cruciate ligament injury often lead to degenerative changes in the knee that can require total knee joint replacement. It was hypothesized(More)
This retrospective study explores a number of variables encountered with the use of either epidural or non-epidural anesthesia and analgesia. Postoperative mobility, amount of narcotic used, incidence of blood transfusion, length of stay, and presence of urinary retention, pruritus, nausea and vomiting, or respiratory depression were compared in a group of(More)
Self-assessed health status has been shown to be a powerful predictor of mortality, service use, and total cost of medical care treatment. We investigated the potential for self-assessed health to further serve as a predictor of improvement in health status after a clinical intervention. Using the five-category measure of self-assessed health (excellent,(More)
