Three rat hybridoma cell lines have been isolated which produce monoclonal antibodies identifying a noduleenhanced, soluble component of Pisum sativum root nodules. These antibodies each recognized a protease-sensitive band (M(r) 95K) on SDS-polyacrylamide gels. The 95K antigen was resolved by isoelectric focusing into acidic and neutral components which(More)
Nuclear hormone receptors comprise a superfamily of ligand-modulated transcription factors that mediate the transcriptional activities of steroids, retinoids, and thyroid hormones. A growing number of related proteins have been identified that possess the structural features of hormone receptors, but that lack known ligands. Known as orphan receptors, these(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine temporal, geographic, and sociodemographic trends in case reporting and case fatality of malaria in the United Kingdom. SETTING National malaria reference laboratory surveillance data in the UK. DESIGN Observational study using prospectively gathered surveillance data and data on destinations from the international passenger survey.(More)
Anthropogenic land use changes drive a range of infectious disease outbreaks and emergence events and modify the transmission of endemic infections. These drivers include agricultural encroachment, deforestation, road construction, dam building, irrigation, wetland modification, mining, the concentration or expansion of urban environments, coastal zone(More)
Hospitals frequently use personnel scheduling options as recruiting and retention instruments. The successful application of these personnel scheduling tools, whether developed in-house or purchased from vendors, requires appreciation of the interrelationships of three basic manpower decisions--staffing, personnel scheduling, and allocation.

OBJECTIVES To identify which British residents travelling abroad are at greatest risk of malaria infection, and to determine the efficacy of malaria chemoprophylaxis for preventing P falciparum infections in tropical Africa. DESIGN Prospective cohort study (case-base linkage) with routine national surveillance systems. Denominators (base population) were(More)
The proportion of blood meals taken on humans which are infectious to mosquitoes in the Madang area, Papua New Guinea was estimated by two methods. In the first, laboratory reared Anopheles farauti were fed on individuals of all ages at village surveys. The results showed that 3.8% of people were infectious and that the mean percentage of mosquitoes which(More)
Risks associated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) have been reported to be increased in children ≤15 kg. We sought to compare the safety and efficacy of RFA in children <15 kg with those between 15.1 and 20 kg. Clinical, electrophysiologic, and RFA data for all patients ≤20 kg who underwent RFA for supraventricular tachycardia between January 1994 and(More)
Familial adult-onset primary torsion dystonia is an autosomal dominant disorder with markedly reduced penetrance. Most adult-onset primary torsion dystonia patients are sporadic cases. Disordered sensory processing is found in adult-onset primary torsion dystonia patients; if also present in their unaffected relatives this abnormality may indicate(More)
