Lipodystrophy associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection causes abdominal fat gain, peripheral subcutaneous fat atrophy, insulin resistance, low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and hypertriglyceridemia. An exercise program combined with a moderate-fat, low-glycemic-index, high-fiber diet can reverse several aspects of(More)
Proteus mirabilis expressed three superoxide dismutase activities, which depended on the level of soluble iron and dioxygen in the culture medium. Cadmium and lead decreased production of super oxide dismutase in liquid culture and on solid medium. A fourth super oxide dismutase activity appeared in extracts from cells grown in the presence of cadmium.(More)
Human milk sodium ([Nal]) and potassium ([K)] concentrations were measured every 4 h for 24 h in 28 subjects 3.5 to 32 wk postpartum. A diurnal variation in milk Na was seen, which was reciprocal to K. Significant negative correlations between Na and K were seen in these periods: 3.5 to 6; 8 to 18, 20 to 32 wk postpartum (p less than 0.01 for each). The(More)
The energies and physical descriptors for the binding of 21 novel 1-(2,6-difluorobenzyl)-2-(2,6-difluorophenyl)-benzimidazole (BPBI) analogs to HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) variants Y181C, L100I, V106A, and K103N have been determined using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations. The crystallographic structure of the lead compound, 4-methyl BPBI, was used as a(More)
Mental health problems among children and adolescents are an area of public health needing increased attention. Children and adolescents whose mental health problems go untreated are at increased risk of suicide, juvenile delinquency, school dropout, and substance abuse.
