The objective of this study was to compare between the quantitative and qualitative aspects of a clock drawing test in elderly schizophrenic and Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Three independent raters performed a retrospective analysis of the clock drawing item from the Cambridge Cognitive Examination (CAMCOG), in long-term open wards of a public(More)
The present study, using a decision analysis, evaluates whether an exercise tolerance test (ETT) is indicated before initiating regular physical activity to reduce the risk of sudden death during exercise training. The study encompasses a decision tree, Monte Carlo simulation, and utility analysis for adults at low to high risk for coronary disease, with a(More)
Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF. corrizza contagiosa) is an invariably fatal communicable disease in cattle, whose causative agent is the ovine herpes virus-2, or the alcelaphine herpes virus-1. In one feed-lot family farm, 34 calves out of 100 became ill at the rate of one to four calves per week, and all of them subsequently died over a period of 4 months.(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possibility of early diagnosis of Jarcho-Levin syndrome by ultrasound examination of the fetus. Over a period of 5 years, nine women from one Arab family, known to carry an autosomal recessive form of the disease, were prospectively and repeatedly examined using ultrasound. Out of eight pregnancies, four fetuses(More)
Aspergillus terreus was isolated from the organs of a German Shepherd pup removed from the bitch by cesarean intervention. In the following days, the bitch developed signs of canine disseminated aspergillosis and was euthanized. The fungus was isolated from a necrotic lesion in the uterus and other organs. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the agreement among spouses and children in their describing the current and past personality of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and to determine the relations between their descriptions and selected demographic and clinical variables. The subjects were 22 dementia out-patients who fulfilled the(More)
Palladium was vapor deposited on a thin FeO(111) film grown on a Pt(111) substrate. Scanning tunneling microscopy study has revealed that Pd wets the FeO substrate and at elevated temperatures forms extended Pd(111) monolayer islands in contrast to other oxide supports previously studied. For the first time, we have imaged the metal-oxide interface(More)
Microalbuminuria (MA) is a known marker for endothelial dysfunction and future cardiovascular events. Exercise-induced albuminuria (EiA) may precede the appearance of MA. Associations between EiA and metabolic syndrome (MS) have not been assessed so far. Our aim was to investigate this association in a large sample of apparently healthy individuals with no(More)
A field study aimed to characterize atmospheric pollutants in the gaseous and the particulate phases was conducted during the fall-winter of 2004 and the summer of 2005 in the Ashdod area, Israel. The site is influenced by both anthropogenic sources (power plants, refineries, chemical and metal industries, a cargo port, road traffic) and natural sources(More)
