OBJECTIVE The authors have shown that clinical guidelines embedded in an electronic medical record improved the quality, while lowering the cost, of care for health care workers who incurred occupational exposures to body fluid. They seek to determine whether this system has similar effects on the emergency department care of young children with febrile(More)
Although a significant number of nickel dermatitis cases are seen clinically, most cases are neither patch-tested nor captured in the literature, allowing for a prospering hidden nickel epidemic. We present a qualitative review utilizing the public medical library of peer-reviewed US adult nickel dermatitis cases with the goal of identifying regional(More)
A previous report from this laboratory has shown that certain derivatives of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons bind to phiX174 DNA and render it noninfectious. The present work describes the relationship between the extent of phiX174 DNA binding by (+/-)-anti-benzo[a]pyrene-7,8-dihydrodiol-9,10-epoxide and the effect on infectivity. The results suggest that(More)
The usefulness of bacterial viruses for detecting substances that are potentially carcinogenic is reexamined as a model system for screening biologically active polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. A modification of the original assay procedure allows one to distinguish between aromatics that can modify the biological activity of infectious nucleic acids(More)
