Expression of integrins, a family of cell adhesion proteins, by human articular cartilage chondrocytes in vivo has been studied by immunohistological techniques using cryostat sections and a panel of anti-integrin monoclonal antibodies. Chondrocytes strongly expressed beta 1 and alpha 5 integrin subunits, known to form the classical fibronectin receptor,(More)
OBJECTIVE To systematically study the histopathology of sacroiliitis in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) at 5 different stages of the disease. METHODS Two independent observers assessed 75 microscopic features in the sacroiliac (SI) joints in 12 cases of AS (5 biopsies, 7 autopsies) and in 22 control cases (all autopsies). RESULTS In AS, synovitis, pannus(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors' goal was to determine whether self-rated patterns of mood regulation differed among patients with major depression, patients with borderline personality disorder, patients with premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and normal subjects. METHOD Fourteen days of morning and evening mood self-ratings on a visual analog scale were analyzed for 65(More)
Sixteen female outpatients with borderline personality disorder and prominent behavioral dyscontrol, but without a current episode of major depression, were studied in a double-blind, crossover trial of placebo and the following four active medications: alprazolam (average dose, 4.7 mg/d); carbamazepine (average dose, 820 mg/d); trifluoperazine(More)
One of the most perplexing and dangerous aspects of borderline personality disorder is the wide array of suicidal and parasuicidal behaviors. Close phenomenologic evaluation of these behaviors reveals that they can be differentiated into various subcategories. Approaching these behaviors with a biologic perspective may prove helpful in elucidating the(More)
Using a new roentgenographic technique for measuring cartilage deformation in intact joint specimens, twenty-eight normal human hip joints from subjects twenty-five to eighty-five years old were loaded with a force of five times body weight in a testing machine. The initial unloaded thickness of the articular cartilage of the femoral head and the changes in(More)
Cerebrospinal metabolites were measured in 17 patients with borderline personality disorder and 17 normal controls. There were no significant differences between the two groups in levels of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), homovanillic acid (HVA), or 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG). Within the borderline group, lower levels of CSF 5-HIAA were(More)
Forty-six patients with borderline personality disorder with and without major depression and 27 normal volunteers completed the Buss-Durkee Hostility Inventory, a self-rating scale of anger and hostility. The patients with borderline personality had significantly higher scores than the normal volunteers. The scores of the patients with borderline(More)
