OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in lung function and somatic growth that occur over time in children with hemoglobin SC (Hb-SC) sickle cell disease (SCD). METHODS Measurements of lung function and somatic growth were performed in patients with Hb-SC twice with an interval of 50.2 +/- 26.0 months. Comparisons were made with a group of patients with(More)
Although the invasive plant Melaleuca has been in Florida for over 100 years, very little information exists on the extent of its coverage, area treated, control methods used, treatment costs, and the negative economic and environmental effects caused. To help remedy this lack of information, a survey of professional land managers in south Florida was(More)
To assess the current situation and management practices for control of the invasive species Melaleuca in south Florida, a survey was conducted in 2004. This research was undertaken as part of the Areawide Management Evaluation of Melaleuca (TAME Melaleuca), in collaboration with the USDA-Agricultural Research Service and the South Florida Water Management(More)
BACKGROUND We studied the changes in the patterns of lung function and somatic growth over time in children and adolescents (10.6 +/- 3.5 years at first test) with hemoglobin SS (Hb-SS) sickle cell disease (SCD). METHODS Lung function and somatic growth were measured twice with an interval of 42.3 +/- 23.3 months in 45 children (25 females and 20 males)(More)
An invasive species, as defined in 1999 by Presidential Executive Order 13112, is " an alien species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. " Alien or invasive species have affected many, if not most, countries around the world in some way. In some cases, these non-native species have been(More)
Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is an essential eukaryotic molecular chaperone. To properly chaperone its clientele, Hsp90 proceeds through an ATP-dependent conformational cycle influenced by posttranslational modifications (PTMs) and assisted by a number of co-chaperone proteins. Although Hsp90 conformational changes in solution have been well-studied,(More)
