A case control design has been used to investigate risk factors associated with the development of cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) in a population of urban women in which non-affluent minority groups were heavily represented. Eighty-five women with histologically confirmed SIL were compared to a control group of 70 cytologically normal(More)
OBJECTIVE This investigation was undertaken to assess whether pregnancy represents a risk factor for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection which is independent of age and other known HPV risk factors. METHODS One hundred eighty-nine women were enrolled from the outpatient clinics of a large municipal hospital. The subjects completed a self-administered(More)
The lesion sustained by the amnesic patient H.M. consisted of bilateral ablation of medial temporal lobe structures with relative sparing of more lateral white matter and neocortical structures. We present the first detailed report of a case where the reverse pattern of lesions predominated, namely bilateral pathology of white matter and neocortical(More)
Limited data are available regarding adults age ≥50 at initial HIV diagnosis. Improved understanding of this group is critical in designing interventions to facilitate earlier diagnosis and linkage to HIV care. We characterize individuals newly diagnosed with HIV, particularly those ≥50 years old, and examine the relationship between age and late diagnosis(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze and compare contents of the preocular tear films of llamas and cattle. ANIMALS 40 llamas and 35 cattle. PROCEDURE Tear pH was determined by use of a pH meter. Total protein concentration was determined by use of 2 microtiter methods. Tear proteins were separated by use of electrophoresis and molecular weights of bands were(More)
BACKGROUND Epidemiologic research is frequently hindered by the inherent difficulty in quantifying the risk of sexually transmitted disease (STD) acquisition associated with individual patterns of sexual behavior. GOAL OF THE STUDY To develop a quantitative sexual behavior risk scale and demonstrate its predictive validity in an assessment of risk factors(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism by which pilocarpine causes increased aqueous humor (AH) flare, hypotony, and miosis in dogs. ANIMALS 6 dogs with normal eyes. PROCEDURE Both eyes of each dog were treated topically with a 2% solution of pilocarpine, and 1 eye of each dog was additionally treated with commercially available ophthamic solutions.(More)
BACKGROUND An increased risk of anogenital tract malignancies has been noted among renal transplant recipients. A high prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection of the cervix in the female renal-transplant population has been assumed based on increasing evidence suggesting that HPV infection is the major risk factor for cervical intraepithelial(More)
